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

Youre most welcome, Heather. And thank YOU for the glorious Esolen quote, a few posts back. Spot-on. They will stay with me for ages. 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

11 year old boys are an excellent idea, when this pie is on hand. Theyll take only huge slices, leave only crumbs. Just sneak a sliver and call it a public service effort! And while I have no particular fondness for stray cats, I think the analogy spot-on -- and my idea of a great evening, to boot. Happy April to you, Margaret! xx, M
Ha! Yes, Ellen, caution tape around the pie would be very, VERY wise :) Hooray for rhubarb. We just planted two fresh crowns, having watched the one we inherited with the house wither to almost nothing. Well have to bide our time, this Spring, but heres to hoping for a bumper crop, next year! xx, M
Ahhh, the diorama predicament! We have been there, many times :) Buckeyes are quite wonderful in their own right (I am a latecomer, not being a native, and an unlikely fan, not being a chocolate-fiend. But done right, with good peanut butter and bittersweet, they are pretty great.), but I might even like them better in pie form. Then again, it may be because its like license to eat six buckeyes in one sitting. Whatever works! xx, M
Hi Bev, Great question! As written, the recipe reflects all the doubling, so you can follow it to the letter. Enjoy! Molly Sent from my iPhone

Oh, the deep dive! I know it sooooo well. As do my kids. Indeed, I was just explaining to my #2 this morning, "Henry, have you ever heard of artists and their 'periods'? Picasso, say, and his cubist period, then his blue period, and so on? You remind me of him, so, the way you plunge yourself so thoroughly into something, shake every last drop of goodness out, like a dog with a bone. Plumb it fully. Then move on." My mom calls it her "monomania" :) Maybe it's hereditary? Love the flowers AND the bowls. (Maybe bowls full of mini-flowers??) xx, M

Last week was non-stop rumble and flash. Gray flannel days. Swollen skies. Ozone air, heavy, fraught, the sort that is almost sulfurous. Clouds moving so quickly you could clock them. We were stuck inside nearly every waking hour. It was, in other words, pretty much perfect. Looking up the forecast on my phone, late one night, I nearly dropped the thing. You know the way the weather app's wallpaper quaintly reflects the current conditions? How it's usually sweet, fairly iconic, cherry blossoms, maybe snowflakes, a star-freckled night sky? Maybe you knew to expect that, sometimes, you tap the app and... Continue reading

Heather, Quinoa contains a natural coating, saponin, that has a bitter flavor, and requires a good, thorough rinse before cooking, to remove. I wonder if this is the smell you refer to? Most recipes suggest you rinse the quinoa thoroughly in a strainer, though I find that the tiny things often flit right through the holes. I often measure out my quinoa, tip it into a large bowl, fill it well with cold water, then swoosh it vigorously with my hands, repeatedly, before draining in a (fine mesh) sieve. I've never had a whiff of bitterness. There is a scent as the quinoa cooks, as with all cooking grains, though to my nose, it is more grainy and malty than weird. But maybe that's just me? Anyway, hope that helps! My best "advise" for the evening :) xx, Molly

Ah, the holy trinity: Cool Whip, Miracle Whip + Cheez Whiz ;) So good to be a child of the golden age of American dining! The magnolias are just now finally blooming! Peeks of pink, today. I think we must be two months behind you. But we have seeds set to sprout, and high hopes for a garden :) Happy Spring to you, friend! Hello to the littles. xx, M
