Weeknight Skillet Lasagna with Kale and Artichoke

I pride myself on having a few different love languages. Of course they all revolve around me feeding the people I love and while that may be downright annoying for someone say, sick with the flu, I’m ok with it –  everyone is hungry eventually.  One of my love languages is pie, usually chicken pot.  Cookies are a love language language among us Wilson’s,...

Let It Be Sunday, 327!

Hello friends!  Things I’m thankful for this week include: These moody New Orleans summer days with their fluffy humid clouds, pink sunsets, and still steamy summer evening river walks.  Well earned yoga savasana on my own hardwood floors.  The Christmas tree I’ve had lit every night for the past two weeks and the homemade egg nog I enjoyed next...

Let It Be Sunday, 326!

Hello dear friends!  Welcome to (somehow) a Sunday in the middle of June. I swear the last time I blinked it was February and yet… here we are. We have officially passed the point of no return in New Orleans. It’s swampass summer and that’s that on that. There’s no beating around that bush.   Over here in Holiday Magazine Land I don’t seem to have...

Frozen Pimm’s Cups

I’ve been a board certified adult for a few years (if not a few decades) now and can tell you a handful of things for certain. Adulthood comes with certain small joys that you simply don’t appreciate as a not adult. One of those small joys is having whatevertheheck you want for dinner.  My favorite whatevertheheck I want dinner is a bowlful of marinated...

Let It Be Sunday, 325!

Hello friends!  Happy Sunday to you! Can you believe this is the first Sunday in June!? In my heart and body I’m somewhere between Thanksgiving dinner rolls and a sunburn. I’m working hard hard hard on the next Joy the Baker holiday magazine which means ALL of my baking lately is pumpkin or peppermint or Italian Christmas cookies when all I want to...

Let It Be Sunday, 324!

Hello, friends!  I hope this finds you happy, well, healthy, energized.   I’m taking a week of from my Let It Be Sunday offerings. I’m spending the weekend celebrating my birthday with Will, his family, my parents, and our friends. It’s my favorite weekend of the year and the unofficial start to summer and I plan to be fully in it.  The offering...

The Easiest Strawberry Blueberry Browned Butter Cobbler

Welcome to cobbler season!  It’s that time of year when we put the best of summer’s fruit into a buttered baking dish, top it with any sort of buttered crumble and bake it until everything browns and bubbles.   There are about a millions ways to cobbler and this is my favorite of the unfussy versions.   My dad recently sent me a family heirloom –...

Let It Be Sunday, 323!

Hello dear friends! Happy Sunday!  I’m feeling very much under the weather this week. Gosh as soon as I whipped that mask off I caught a nasty cold.  It’s downright silly how debilitating a common cold can be and I’ve been trying to force myself to work through it which… well it hasn’t served me. Denial doesn’t seem to be working.  I’ll be better...

Thoughts From Birthdays Past

The jasmine, gardenias, and magnolias are in bloom here in New Orleans. It’s a rainy but generous spring.   The jasmine reminds me of the nights in California. Gardenias remind me of my grandmother, as she’d clip them from her garden and float them in a bowl on the living room table.  Honestly, I think it was camellias she clipped and floated, but...

Let It Be Sunday, 322!

Hello friends, happy Sunday!  This week I’ve felt very grateful. Grateful that my parents are able to celebrate my birthday with me in Houston in a few weeks. Grateful for work opportunities that keep me super busy (I’m working on another Joy the Baker Holiday Magazine!). Grateful for a backyard to pitz around in this beautiful spring! Just… feeling...
