Farmer's Market Haull

Farmer's Market Haul. All the good things are coming into the Oregon markets. Last weekend I picked up early season strawberries (just about the best thing on earth), pea tendrils, carrots, asparagus, bok choy, radishes, fava tops, mizuna, snap peas, and kimchi. Here are some of my favorite tips for navigating the farmer's market.

Chive Blossom Crown

Chive Blossom Crown. Elle decided she needed to pick all the chive blossoms from the garden to decorate "queen mama's" hair. I kind of loved the look. 

Lovely Lovejoy Salad

Lovely Lovejoy Salad. My favorite "off-the-menu" salad from Lovejoy Bakers in the Pearl. The hazelnut salad + avocado + hard boiled egg + grapefruit. Kind of like this Grapefruit and Avocado Salad with Lemon Chive Dressing. So good!

Counting Down the Days

Counting Down the Days. There were many late nights the past few months to get the new website ready for launch this week. So happy to be finished and ready to refocus on content and recipe development.

Perfect Afternoon Snack

Perfect Afternoon Snack. Blueberries + strawberries + sunflower seed butter + cinnamon. Almond butter also works in place of sunflower seed butter.

Mother's Day Love

Mother's Day Love. I was lucky to spend Mother's Day with my mom and daughter. Elle just loves my mom so darn much. Seeing them together makes my heart bust.

Real Food Whole Life Branding Board.

Real Food Whole Life Branding Board. A peek at the branding board Lauren from Elle & Company produced for the Real Food Whole Life rebrand and website redesign. I still can't get over how well everything turned out. If you want a behind-the-scenes look at her process, check out this post.
