kicking off hannukah with these cardamom-scented chocolate tahini rugelach. bless up.
and so begins the slow descent into baking-every-sunday season.
We love these New Caramel Chocolate Apples! -
hell yeah our fuyus are ready and hell yeah that’s a dc cutting board.
i bet this one makes you cry by reminding you of all your shattered dreams while you chop it 😪
just like the plum tree, the persimmons (in both the front and back yards) are going crazy this year and i am not mad about it.
last year, i assumed both trees were fuyus bc of the shape of the fruit, but a couple of days ago, i noticed the ones out back looking a lot riper than the ones in the front.
this afternoon, i checked on the ripest ones, and they turned out to be as soft as marshmallows. so it turns out we’ve got some astringents (possibly maru) on our hands!
these are the persimmons i ate when i was a kid, and i can’t help but be reminded of my mom, who used to have to cut me off because i’d eat so many. i laugh to myself when i think, in a parallel universe, how quickly she’d be over here if i told her there was free fruit in it for her.
i call this one, “i went to market without a list.”
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: to anybody who proclaims that spaghetti squash is “just like pasta,” i beg of you, eat a dang carb.
i will also say, though, that it serves as a great nest for creamy mushrooms and herbs. finally, let it be known that tonight i made the best batch of fried sage of entire my life and i can now die a peaceful death*

🍏🍎&🍐 harvest from this morning. Anyone have any baking recipe favorite using apples and pears?
So ready for these figs! What’s your favorite fall fruit?
Was just about to hang all these basil seeds to dry out when @rootedgarden
. What perfect timing! What seeds are you saving this season?
Savoring the last bits of summer
every now and again (not often), i think about how nice it would be if SOMEONE would make ME dinner once in a while, but then i remember how SOMEONE does all the stuff outside that needs doing, and gets caught up in awkward, inescapable conversations with the neighborhood busybody (one of many, if nextdoor is any real indication) so that i don’t have to, and then i make dessert.
grew up in a rural part of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Growing up, he could be found in the kitchen with his parents and grandmothers, learning their secrets. Upon graduating from the CIA at Greystone, Carlyle headed North to Alaska to cook as a personal chef. He met his bandmates there and together they started the @supersaturatedsugarstrings
in 2011. Looking for a job that would accommodate his music habit, he began baking at Anchorage's Fire Island Rustic Bakeshop. He was promoted to Head Baker and Executive chef and earned a nomination from the @beardfoundation
for Outstanding Baker in 2017. Carlyle has a unique style of cooking and baking, one that blends savory and baking concepts together. He adds a little bit of Southern charm to all of the North-inspired dishes that he develops. Carlyle is beyond excited to be cooking at the Shelbourne in such a rich culinary region as the Washington Coast. He looks forward to bringing his Southern, Alaskan, baked goodness to Long Beach and demonstrating how music, like wine, can enhance the dining experience. Come join us at @shelburnehotel
