Wow. How could I miss a such great food blog? Not only was it voted Readers Choice Best Cooking Blog by Saveur in 2014, it won the magazine's Editor's Choice award in 2016. Moreover, it's maintained by a couple living in Austin, Texas, which is just down the road a ways. It seems that Jeanine does most of the cooking, blogging, and photos, but her husband Jack helps out a lot, too.
The food photos are simply gorgeous. The recipes are healthy and wholesome, with an eye to fresh ingredients and the seasons. They are also largely vegetarian.
They have some great side dish recipes for Thanksgiving. Since I just discovered this fabulous blog, I haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes yet. I can hardly wait. But honestly, you don't need my recommendation. I was the last to know! Besides Saveur, it's been featured in Oprah Magazine, Food and Wine, Self, among others. They've also published a cookbook by the same name.
A favorite quote from Jeanine on their "About Us" page: I like bright, seasonal food that's very often finished with a squeeze of lemon.
So do we.
Surely, the past, present, and future connect in this miraculous state we call life. In this light, history and all human experience are ever-present. Wouldn't it be nice, then, if we could enjoy each other, if we could appreciate and celebrate our differences? Let us love! Let us have fun. Let us toast each other and wish each other well. Now, in our awareness, is the time to be happy, to do our best, to live fully to our purest, highest standards.
