Finally! A breakfast place that takes jam seriously! Homemade mixed berry jam! #happyjam

We spent the holiday weekend in Northampton visiting friends. We had a lovely time and I’m back feeling refreshed and ready for the summer to start picking up speed (this time of year flies by faster than any other for me). Now, links!

I did two big things last week. The first was that I co-hosted five canning videos with Nicki Sizemore for the Taste of Home Online Cooking School (I was initially super nervous but it ended up going incredibly well). The second was that I turned 36, which after the fanfare of 35 felt like a singularly anti-climactic birthday. Now I’m back to work and doing my best to make good things to share with you guys. Now, links!

Banana, spinach, dates, frozen grapes, milk, and the last of the 2014 blueberries. #smoothieinajar #glassdharma

Since turning in the book draft on Wednesday, I’ve slept a little more than normal, gone for a couple extended walks along the river, made nettle pesto (more on that soon), and wandered through two farmers markets. I have a busy start to the coming week, but my birthday (36!) is Thursday and I plan to do nothing but fun things. Now, some links.

Wil It Waffle

In the madness of finishing the book manuscript, I never managed to post the winners in the Will It Waffle giveaway from a few weeks ago. The US winner is #190/Laura and the Canadian winner is #210/Anne. And don’t forget about the Orchard Road giveaway. It’s open until Tuesday.

Links: Granola Bars, Roasted Cauliflower Leaves & a Winner

Almond butter toast, tea, a strawberry/banana/spinach smoothie, and a cookbook.

I’m now officially in the phase known as book crunch time. I spent most the weekend writing and plan to spend much of the next two weeks on a short tether, moving from stove to computer and back again. Please send all the creative thoughts you can spare in my general direction! Now, links!

The winner of last week’s Ball FreshTECH Electric Water Bath Canner Giveaway is #866/Angie W. I so loved reading all your stories of canning gear and how you process the bounty of the summer!

A solitary homemade waffle

This weekend was about family and book work. My extended family gathered at my cousin’s house on Friday night for our Seder. Saturday was devoted to hunkering down in my local coffee shop to work on the book draft. And on Sunday, my mother-in-law came over for a simple Easter brunch.

I like nothing more than food, family, and productivity, so I had a very lovely time. I hope your weekends were equally good and balanced! Now, links!

glass dharma end labels

I so enjoyed reading all your straw stories last week during the Glass Dharma giveaway. The three people who won the $25 gift certificates are #77/Julie Parker, #139/Rebecca, #168/Anita. If you didn’t win, make sure to check out their Earth Day straw giveaway (all you have to do is pay shipping)!

I spent the last five days at my version of summer camp (the IACP conference). I saw so many of my favorite fellow food writers, got to meet several people I’ve long admired from afar, and and spent a happy few minutes playing peek-a-boo with my editor’s sweet baby girl. I also drank far too much (not hard for a lightweight like me), slept very little, and didn’t so much as glance at my in-progress book manuscript.

This week is all about getting back on track with work, doing some serious recipe testing, and making 10 pounds of brisket for my family’s Seder on Friday night. Now, links!

These two aren’t directly related to food, but are good reads nonetheless.

  • Julie ruminates on blogs, making a living, and finding a way to make a site pay without compromising one’s standards.
  • As someone who turned her side hustle into a career, I related to so much of this piece.

Mustache Coffee Club bag
