CEO of the drivers club! I love that. Totally plagiarizing that one for the next generation :) We just acquired our (fourth? fifth?) case of (eighteen) atulfos. They are gems! Best to you, Ellen! xx, Molly

Grape-smelling irises?? Ive never heard of such a thing! And here I was, thinking the iris couldnt be improved upon ... Must go Google this phenomenon, ASAP :) xx, Molly

Nancy, Thank you, truly, for your kind words. They made my morning, and afternoon, both. May your garden be bursting with all manner of goodness, as we hit high May. xx, Molly

Charlotte, Ive no doubt farro would be glorious, here. A fave of mine, also. Alls well that ends well, and what struck me so about the whole situation was not the potential downsides, but the wonder and splendor of seeing, if for a moment, two worlds at once. Such magic. All my best, Molly

Kelsey, Pop away! I adore tips of all sorts, but most especially of the baking + pastry variety. As to the cream, I hear you on the over-whipping. However, my only experience in folding in peanut butter (and other thick, stodgy substances) to cream has been the opposite, i.e. the breaking down of the air bubbles, carefully whipped in. Even with classic, Julia Child-gentle folding, my experience has been a sad deflating, when the cream is at anything less than stiff peaks. And its ever so hard to re-vivify droopy cream! I wonder whether youve encountered anything similar? And if so, your remedy? Anyway, hence our call for stiff peaks... Best to you on your impending (already?!) new LA adventure!! xx, Molly
Beck, You are a better gardener than I, to be in the garden already, without the additional (essential!) nudge of inspiration. Still, I cant recommend Taras lovely words strongly enough. I hope you enjoy it as much as I. Also? Ive been meaning to try those nutmeg muffins for ages. Thanks ever so much for the reminder! (Speaking of nudges...) xx, Molly

I was driving to the store, last Friday, when a Jeep Commander to my right cranked the wheel, hard left. Veered so sharply into my lane, I couldn't see his license plate. Or bumper. Indeed, what I saw mostly was him, the driver, which is such a bad thing to see when someone's moving into your lane. To say there was a foot to spare would be generous. No, an exaggeration. Six inches, maybe. More like three. It wouldn't have been a terminal crash; city streets; lightning reflexes; tons of steel. But it would've been ugly, should've been. Mostly on... Continue reading

Kelsey, The asparagus can TOTALLY be cut, pre-blanching. Love it. And even better? That radish trick!!! I will be trying this out on my own children (and myself) before the week is out. I never knew!! xx, Molly

Oh, Kelsey, congratulations!!! Heres to an excellent externship! LA cannot be beat, this time of year. Imagine all that glorious fresh produce for your pastry! All my best, xx, Molly

Bulk nibs are the best!!! For the record, we also love them in salads (esp. spinach, oranges and feta, red onions optional) and in chocolate chip cookies. So, so good!!! xx, Molly

Holy moly!! Somehow I MISSED the pockets, when my PurlSoho e-mail came through, last week. Pockets!!! This is a game-changer!!! Thank you, thank you for posting this, and with making contrasting pockets, to boot. (I apparently need some things knocked over the head.) I see so many of these in my future... (And oh, those milk maid braids!!) xx, Molly

Do not read Tara Austen Weaver's new book, Orchard House, if you value your sleep. Even if you don't like gardening memoirs; even if you haven't even ever read a gardening memoir, chances are, you'll find yourself up until 3 a.m., unable to put it down. That's no way to start a week. Also, do not read Orchard House if you're keen on a calm back. And happy, go-lucky legs. And soft, squishy upper arms. It won't last. None of it. Because you will find yourself unable to stay out of whichever dirt patch you have access to. Your backyard.... Continue reading

Happy Fall to you, Beck! It is my favorite season, after all. Second only to Spring! xx, M

Nimble. I havent heard that word in too long :) Thanks, Emmanuelle, for bringing that into my morning. Those little cups are beloved by me, as well. They are a mountain dogwood, and they are just as charming in person. Happy Spring to you! Molly

Hooray for brave 4 year olds!! I must try a pureed version + pasta. I did have good luck with piling half in as a base for a potato-leek soup (plus all those veg). But oh, the suspect color green continues, well beyond reason... Happy Spring to you, Eva! xx, Molly

Ah, Julia, you are a wise woman to have been treading this path for so long. And so good to know that it is still a daily practice. (Sigh!) But through such means are habits formed, yes? Best to you and your recovery! xx, Molly

Oh, Molly, thanks so much for your sweet words. For what its worth, your last post made me sigh and nod (and wince) in recognition, the prodigious output, followed by the (oof!) fall. May the strengthening days continue! xx, Molly

Spring is so slow in some parts, yes? But when it arrives, it does so with a vengeance. Soon, soon! And when it does, may you gulp it in as well, Mary! xx, Molly

"Stop." "Just, STOP." We were walking after dinner, as we do, once the weather warms past, say, freezing. These walks aren't, for the most part, anything remarkable: short, familiar, pretty rote. Some days are all-in; others, forced marches; most, same-old, same-old. We can (and do) sometimes stray, take different turns, go farther, go longer. But what makes them easy and often is that unthinking, old rut quality. It's what we do. It's why it works. Anyway, there we were, traveling an old groove, when Henry came to a halt. Verbally. Physically. I didn't hear his soles screech, but they might... Continue reading
