To May

April was a rough month, but here’s lookin’ at you, May.

It’s been hard to find the words to write, so for now I hope you’ll like these pictures and links (and look for the guava mojito recipe that I sneakily snuck as well). Recipes soon.


brownies in Colorado

No visit to Colorado would be complete without trusted helpers making brownies.



Kelly and Gilbert visit, we feast

An unexpected, wonderful visit and the feast that ensued: fish tacos, sopa de arroz, black beans,
cactus salad, and a riff on this shredded cabbage slaw.


Extra old

David Lebovitz’s Pickled Red Onions; a mish-mashed quinoa salad.

Guava mojito

Guava mojito: Muddle 10 or so mint leaves in a glass, add 2 ounces of white rum,
about 6 ounces guava juice, and ice. Stir to combine. Top with sparkling water.

Oh yes.

Smitten Kitchen’s Butterscotch Banana Tarte Tatin (from the cookbook!).

what will it be?

The sauce.

Ginger scallion sauce – Note to self: never make only a half batch again.

Looking back at these pictures, April doesn’t seem half bad.

And that’s what matters.

    Looks like some good recipes coming! Can’t wait! I really like the toes in the pictures, too. I just painted mine the same color! Hope May is MUCH better for you!

    Funny, I was thinking the SAME thing about the toes! All the food and drink look wonderful. I’ll let you know when I make these mojitos – maybe as a post-exams celebration drink. May will be awesome. 🙂 Can’t wait to see you again!
