Sunday Brunch

Sunday brunches are meant for leisure.

Of course, when juggling a baby with one hand and flipping a pancake with the other (which my husband does with increasing ease), leisure begins to seem very, very scarce. Days like this require some seeking, some mustering, and aha! A bit of slowness graciously enters.

Amidst today's acrobatics, the family joined us for some of our favorites.Here, Buttermilk Biscuits with White Bean Gravy and Seitan Bacon.

Tarte aux Poireaux et Pomme de Terre, a creamy leek tart on a crust of flattened potatoes.

A salad featuring the best of Spring: peas, asparagus, and fresh mint.

Cornmeal Pancakes (originally waffles from Vegan with a Vengeance) heaped with strawberries and Soyatoo whipped topping.

The Blog is Back!

...with a smallish addition, that is.

After a not-so-brief hiatus to have a baby and move to Los Angeles, I'm back in the kitchen, flour-sprinkled and fresh with inspiration for my upcoming cookbook. I'm now joined by my daughter, 14 pounds of absolute joy, and my favorite thing since her arrival this past November.

There's so much I look forward to sharing with you this Spring, so visit regularly to see what's cooking!
