A crumble is one the recipes that is a good thing to have in the easy-to-grab drawer. It is super easy and pretty amenable to whatever fruit filling you have on hand and even any flour you have handy. For this one, I used strawberries that I had picked and frozen last year, around this time. The crumble topping is all almond flour. I love its nuttiness and richness paired with the lightness of the fruit. I think it makes a great pairing!

This cake is the first I have baked in 3 months! So, I felt I really must post it. And, it also helps that it is super easy to make :).
So, that’s it. I don’t have time to write more. But, do make this cake; because it is well worth relishing a slice or two of, in those stolen moments of peace and self-reflection :). This cake actually get better the next day and keep nicely for 3-4 days simply covered on the counter. This is thanks to the amount of butter and using the almond flour that makes for a richer, moister cake. Read More
It has been a life changing year! And, really looking back at the the last 10 years when I have been blogging, I am at a loss for words to describe the transformation I have been through. That tonguetied-ness has been a reason for my quiet here. But…. I’ll try…! :)
So, as I was reflecting on 10 years of blogging and trying to figure what that milestone head would read, I realized that it was not about blogging but how one small step into this world, changed my entire life. Not entirely on its own, but like a stone gathering momentum, it set things in motion, it tweaked things in me, opened my eyes to certain qualities in myself and others, met so many interesting people, changed careers….. Starting this blog just created a little path in a new forest and that took to a place that I would never have imagined myself to be in 10 years ago - physically, metaphysically, emotionally, psychologically.

The season for strawberries is finally here!!! At least in the markets; even farmers' markets. These are obviously hot house fruits because the weather, even in June is a bit erratic. Lovely, all around but certainly not high Summer as it you would expect it to be. I love that this is start of a bounty of produce that overflow in the markets and so many more options in vegetables.
Given the straddling seasons and because lemons are always cool, I paired the berries with hints of citrus from the fragrant zest for these scones. They are light, full of flavor and so so crumbly and soft. The perfect way to start a good day! Read More
Sundays have a symbolism. Probably different for different people but typically run along the lines of leisure, fun, family, connection, laid back, indulgent, happy.... you get the gist.
These waffles basically encapsulate all of those lovely feelings! So, you can essentially, insert a few minutes of Sunday into any day of your life!
Even better, they are completely gluten free and even the nittiest gluten lover will find little to be picky about it! Crisp on the outside and chewy in the center, they are lovely as Fall sets in...
Happy Sunday! :) Read More
