Flowers I bought for the house, just because, thanks to the LMWL Challenge.


The reddest lips I could do (I need to buy an actual red lipstick – help?!) and my favorite StitchFix necklace. Are you in yet? It’s the most fun thing ever! I need to do a post with all the things I’ve kept so far.

tomato pie

This dinner was ridiculously good. While we actually have tomatoes coming in, we decided on a tomato and basil pie the other night, complete with fresh mozzarella, a homemade pie crust, and a homemade mayo + cheddar topping.

Have I shared my new obsession with homemade mayo? I can’t stop making it. It’s so easy! There’s a post coming soon about that, I promise.


Our first year growing butternut squash = success! These little babies were roasted and then frozen to have later, and we still have 4 or 5 on the back porch, just waiting to be used.


Best weekend lately, for sure. Nick and I took a long weekend trip to Montreal to see the city, see Shovels & Rope, see The Avett Brothers, and see some friends. I fell in love with the city and already miss it terribly.

Missing recipes? I know. Me too. I’ve got some great ones in the queue, just waiting on me to write them up and get them posted – they’re coming soon! I’ve been enjoying nights without the computer most of the summer, but these recipes just can’t wait any longer.


  1. Ok I am drooling over that tomato pie! So great to hear an update on your life!! xoxo

  2. So awesome! I’d love to grow my own butternut squash; it’s one of my favorites and is so versatile!

  3. I love everything about this post! In short: can’t wait for my first StitchFix, tomato pie looks FAB, I’m jealous of those beautiful butternut squashes, and I hope you have so much fun this weekend!!

  4. That pie! I can’t wait for the recipe.

  5. YAY for new recipes but double YAY for not being on the computer every night! I love nights like that!

  6. Ooohhh waiting on that tomato pie recipe… it looks wonderful!!!
