Chicken & potatoes: my go to dinner (with onions & lots of lemon😋). What’s yours?? 👇🏼
Don’t trust people who don’t like eggs. Fact. Especially if they’re smooshed with mustard & chives for the ultimate open faced, egg mayo sandwich...
“I promised myself that when I got back to New York, and ever had the desire to make a #pizza
, I would follow their lead and only make it with the finest ingredients available.
One day, during a very busy subway commute home, there happened to be a school of nuns on the same platform in which I was standing and was reminded me of that day in Napoli Centrale. I was inspired to make pizza.” Click Link in profile and Read the rest of the story on the blog and get the recipe to make a very easy pizza with the perfect #wine

Injecting this greyest of days with the loveliest of fruits; gloriously jammy olive oil, sea salt & rosewater roasted strawberries...🍓🍓🍓
Say Maroulosalata 10x fast.. I’ll wait. 🤣 This salad is comprised of Marouli (lettuce), green onions, and dill. Add cucumbers for more greens and extra filling. 🥗🥒😋 Get the recipe on my blog (it’s been on there but I didn’t have any pictures). Enjoy!
Χρόνια πολλά σε όλους! Xronia Polla to all who celebrate today, including my brother @petesaltas.
Today is the feast day of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary. Many have fasted for two weeks leading up to this day, and even more will celebrate by attending church and panagiri (festivals of food and dancing). 🙏🏼💙😋
The kitchen is fragrant with sweet, rose infused berries and I’m hungry for breakfast tomorrow already...🍓🌹❤️

Making a really good pie takes practice. It’s a skill every young girl was expected to learn in my mother’s generation - one that was passed from mother to daughter or grandmother to granddaughter as they worked side by side in the kitchen.
Though many of us remember our mothers and grandmothers baking pie, it’s become more rare for us to do it ourselves. Our lives are busy, and crafting a pie from scratch - crust to filling - takes more time than we like to spare.
At Lavender and Honey, we place a high value on perfecting each pie that leaves our kitchen. From the flaky crust made with Organic NC-milled flour and Irish butter, to locally sourced fruit and other quality ingredients, everything is made from scratch. It’s part of our commitment of being heirloom recipes to your dinner table.
Last night I received one of the best compliments from a customer. This is what she said: ‘’I just needed to tell you that my family sat down for dinner tonight to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday and for dessert we had your Lemon Chess pie that I bought this morning in Old Salem. It was absolutely one of the best pies I’ve ever had and I just had to share so that you would know your hard work was enjoyed by a family celebrating another year together. Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us!’’
And that makes all those long days in the kitchen worth it.

Hi guys! Here’s a very poor quality video of me making dolmades last year at a cooking class in Chania, Crete. It’s also the first and last time I was on a live Facebook video (on my uncles FB). I think my Yiayia was the only one watching 😂💙 Anyway, I just wanted to share this because so many of my friends have done this class this summer & I’m going to highlight some of their photos here and there! If you’re ever in Chania, I suggest this class (email info@balos
-travel.com for an inquiry), and if not I would totally recommend taking a cooking class wherever you are and no matter your cooking skill level! It’s such a memorable experience. Happy Friday everyone! 😘
, if you’re looking for a new tv star that’s monotone, I’m your girl! 🎥🙋🏽♀️
Plastic cheese rules. That is all 🙌 @rorycub
for Friday night bbq glory..
Friday // Wake up. Coffee in grandmother’s teacup. Sleepy Louis snuggles. Early morning drive to the bakery. Jazz. Pie dough. Brioche dough. Cookie dough. Cinnamon Roll dough. ALL THE DOUGH.
Peel the potatoes, peel the peaches. Bread in, bread out. Pie in, cookies in, pie out, cookies out.
Cakes in, cakes out. Bites of lunch on the run. Up the steps, across to the cottage, down the steps, don’t forget the pot holders.
More bites of pizza (now cold).
A day ruled by beeps. I wouldn’t change any of it. Except maybe all the ovens on one floor. Ha!

Having an overabundance of berries is a great problem to have on a Monday morning. I happen to have an over abundance of berry recipes at YDelicacies.com, and this classic cheesecake is one of my favorites. Grab the link in my profile, and head over to the blog to find out why this is my foolproof cheesecake recipe and enjoy it all week long!!!
Last Spring, my daughter and I began dreaming about the possibility of starting a business together. With a background in fashion and marketing and most recently as a retail buyer, Natalie was ready for a change. I had been working as a free-lance writer and author of my blog, @thecooksinthekitchen
, where I shared stories and interviews of Cooks from around the world. We were both ready for transition.
Following our shared passion for food, and baking, specifically, we launched Lavender and Honey Kitchen in June of 2017 as a way of sharing heirloom recipes from my Mennonite culture, as well as European-inspired desserts and pastries. It’s been a journey of hard work, long days and some sleepless nights, but so worth it.
We didn’t anticipate a baby at this stage in our business, but as my friend @thecreativepalate
recently told me, ‘’These little souls find their way to us whether we invite them or not.’’ And this beautiful soul we have discovered in Louis Pascal has brought so much joy into our world. We can’t imagine our lives without him.
Thanks to all of you for your love and support during these past weeks as we are adjusting to the newest little baker at Lavender and Honey. Natalie will bring him to meet all of you at market soon!

The weather in Atlanta has been absolutely abysmal this week (pouring rain, dreary) and we’ve all got cabin fever. However, it’s given me a wonderful opportunity to do some back to school recipe testing…specifically “snack” recipes (that could also moonlight as breakfast, if necessary) to keep my kids energized and ready for a long day of learning and after school sports practice. I’ve got a teenage daughter who hates to eat breakfast (the most important meal of the day!) and a teenage son who is always hungry! So, I’ve been experimenting with some raw “cookie” recipes and this one was quite popular. This is a no bake, high-protein, slightly sweet, vanilla blueberry “power cookie”, made from scratch in my kitchen. Trust me, you’re gonna 💙 these! Roasted, salted cashews + pitted dates + coconut oil + vanilla bean paste + whole dried blueberries + old fashioned oats + choc-au-lait @guittardchocolate
chips = super simple, super snack that is beyond delish! Grab the recipe at communitykitchenatl.com or via link in profile.

‘Skinny’ is not a word I normally like as I find it can often come with notions of calorie counting & diets...but I’m not gonna lie, @marksandspencer
meatballs are brilliant! Not only are they absolutely delicious but they’re so freaking easy to cook when you need a speedy supper...I love adding a Middle Eastern twist by serving them with za’atar lentils, tahini yoghurt, sweetly caramelised shallot & peppers and homemade flat breads 😀
Avocado carpaccio. Who am I kidding? It’s just roast chicken with avo 🤣 looking through rosè colored glasses. 🤓
KALO MINA (good month)! 🙌🏼 I hope everyone has a wonderful August filled with adventure, happiness & some ouzo mojitos (optional but highly recommended). 😏 xoxo
We affectionately call these our Daisy Rolls. Have you tried them? Made with Organic North Carolina milled flour, eggs, mashed potatoes, yeast and salt these Amish Dinner Rolls are a current favorite at our farmers markets.
Today, you can also find them @letitgrowproduce
(while they last).
