Thank you for the inspiring list - also, for your words of wisdom at the Petaluma Artisan Cheese Festival last Monday. Gabrielle Hamilton's memoir is still in my head after finishing BB&B a few weeks ago - she is one terrific author - 97 Orchard, an account of immigrants living in New York in the late 1800's/early 1900's makes me appreciate all of the culinary blessings that we now have

Great gift idea ! For anyone who lives in eastern Sonoma (close to Napa county line) check out Lunita Farm ! This CSA is a project on my property started by 2 lovely young farmers from New York/New Jersey who re-located to No. CA - the winter veggies are now being harvested - lovely!

Someday when you try this recipe, please do share the results !! This made me laugh and reminded me of an odd combination of ingredients for a recipe that I found in an old magazine. A friend and I were driving through the countryside one day back in the '80s and came across a run down and obviously vacant house - I found a stack of magazines from the 1950's (don't recall the name) while rummaging in this abandoned house in the Carneros region of Napa -we cautiously entered and curiously snooped through the remains of which there was a collection of a publication that featured home decorating, gardening and cooking. One of the recipes went something like this: Take a thick slice of ham and spread peanut butter on the top, add a jar of maraschino cherries, chopped onions and garlic powder. Pour 1 cup of pineapple juice on top and bake for 30 minutes. I never had the courage to experiment with this dish, however have often wondered who and why the creator came up with the combination ?!

Oh Ruth !! This sounds like an event not to be missed and I hope that the only reason you cannot attend is due to your writing retreat in N.H. ! Please put my name in the hat - you are toooooo generous !

Nothing better than June apricots and I am also planning to make something with the stash that I picked up at the Marin Farmer's market on Thursday. The original idea was to make the recipe in Comfort Me with Apples for apricot pie but if you have a recommended recipe for crisp, please do note which one it is. Cheers !
This is inspiring - a couple of young folks from upstate NY are now farming on my property in Sonoma and have started a CSA. Check out Lunita Farm !! This week I was the appreciative beneficiary of kale, lettuce, radishes, baby summer squash - I will use some of the recipes from Comfort Me with Apples - thank you Ruth for your wonderful books !!
