I'm so glad I happened to see your comment right after I put the cake in the oven! It still might not turn out, but I mixed an extra cup of flour into the batter in the pan. I can't believe Oh Joy hasn't updated this recipe since you've called attention to this error. I also noticed that the recipe has more detail on Sunday Supper's website than here...hopefully the lack of parchment paper won't ruin it, too.....

Lovely post, with lovely, encouraging thoughts. And those juniper berries and the fluffy cat, oh my! Happy holidays to you and your family -- your blog is always a breath of quiet and inspiration, thank you so much for it.

Looks beautiful! My boyfriend's been learning sourdough bread this year. He got the Tartine bread book, as well as Ken Forkish's Flour Water Salt Yeast. Together, they work wonderfully, but Forkish's book is his favorite. And the pizza, the pizza! We use the white bread dough made with poolish and it's to die for. (Plus, Forkish has a new pizza book out this year.....not to tempt you with additional cookbooks if what you have is already working deliciously, but worth sharing all the same!)

Now you've got me inspired to try Nordic skiing! I know my parents used to do it, and my best friends in West Michigan like to, but I've never seen photographic evidence, or heard specific tell of wood stoves and cocoa and warming stations. Things to look forward to, thank you!

Obsessively shopping for living room rugs right now! The old one has suffered too many cat claws and spills, plus it's pretty boring.
Here's a metaphorical clinking of champagne flutes, wishing us all a happy, golden September start. Looking forward to your new look and new writing!

"a truly tiny cabin in the woods waiting for us from whose screened porch I lounged with a book while casting a glance toward the rippled lake now and then" That's exactly what I want. Lucky for me, a weekend away in the woods with a baby nephew and two best friends is coming in three short days. but no lake to glance at! I hope the rest of August is as splendid, if in different ways.

The perfect attitude for summer, when lakes really shouldn't be neglected--and for anytime! Thank you for the beautiful blog post. And I really love that shot of Nellie (like everyone else). It makes my heart pang for my dearly departed old hound, and excited for a pup to follow me and my future family around someday.

This is one of my favorite entries in your With What You Have series! Your seamstress and the boutique sound lovely. I've only been to a seamstress once, to have a bridesmaid dress taken in. Unfortunately, that seamstress felt the bust was un-alterable, and so she added padded cups to it instead of helping the dress to fit. Needless to say, that beautiful "caspian sea" taffeta dress made its way to a thrift store after not being worn at all after the wedding, for years. But I'm encouraged to try again. Thank you!
