Happy Holidays and Giveaway Winners

decorating cookies

Happy holidays, friends! So sorry that I’ve disappeared for the last week. I’ve been in Austin, TX with my family a little over a week now. I meant to get a couple more holiday-centric recipes up to share with you all, but I got lost in the hubbub of small children and the inevitable cold they gave me.

I did want to drop in and announce the winners of the Old Blue Raw Honey and Lagostina Risotto Pot giveaways I hosted before things got crazy.

The Old Blue Raw Honey winners are #14/Lizzie, #72/keapdx, and #159/Lynn.

The Lagostina Risotto Pot winner is #237/Daryl Shawn.

bowl of citrus from Autumn

Friends, feast your eyes on all that citrus! An unexpected box arrived on my doorstep late last week and it turned out it was filled with exotic, unsprayed citrus from Autumn (her book, Beyond Canning, will be out in February. Make sure to put it on your wish lists. I’ve seen an advance copy and it’s fab). I have a long list of baking, cooking, and making to do this week, and top on it is doing something worthy with this bounty. Now, links!

Mason Tap Kit - Food in Jars

Fair Food Farmstand Turkey Pick-Up

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and that you’ve had a surfeit of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. I must confess, this was not my most joyous Thanksgiving weekend on record. My mother-in-law has been in the hospital for the last week and so we spent much of the holiday and its weekend with her. Scott and I did slip away for a dinner with my relatives on Saturday, but our hearts remained with Joan and her health struggles.

Now, some links.

tomato jam

I’ve been in Portland for the last few days, visiting my parents, making jam with the last of their tomatoes, and going to a retreat at a gorgeous place called Menucha out in the Columbia River Gorge. It’s been really good to let the beauty of the Pacific Northwest wash over me. Now, links!

The Optimist Rosemary Mint

Now, time for some winners! We’ve got a lot of them this week!

apples and a pawpaw

My apologies for these very tardy links and winners. I felt a little off on Friday and woke up early Saturday morning with the stomach flu. I’m no longer feeling like death is mere moments away, but I’m not quite back to my chipper, food-focused self. Here are the few links I could gather up for you.

Amanda's ferments

A little over a week ago, my friend Amanda‘s new cookbook, Ferment Your Vegetables, came out. In celebration, she had a little lunchtime gathering for those of us local folks. She brought nearly two dozen samples of recipes from the book for us to try and we dug into those jars. Everything was amazing. I can’t wait to try out the book in my own kitchen. You guys are going to love it, too. Now, links!
