Orange Zest Scones + Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Happy Good Friday! There is so much I’d love to say today, as we head into this glorious Easter weekend, but alas I’m in the midst of a multi-day cookbook shoot so I’m going to have to leave you with some pretty pictures and (later today!) a recipe for my favorite orange-zest scones and strawberry-rhubarb compote. I love the sweet-tangy balance of strawberry and rhubarb together and NOTHING says spring to me more than this combo. I made these scones yesterday and let’s just say there are approximately none left!


Signe will be here any minute so I’ve got to run…but I promise I’ll add in the recipe later today…stay tuned!

After the longest winter I can ever remember, we finally have blue skies, over-70-degree temperatures, and the first flowers on the trees. The birds are chirping, my windows are flung open, and I feel like dancing.


An Evening with Kitchensurfing + Chef Eric Bolyard

As you all know, there are few things I love more than a good dinner party. But truth be told – unless I'm just having friends over mid-week for a pot of soup – hosting one is a lot of work! By the time I've cleaned the house, shopped for groceries, wine, and flowers, prepped the food, and set the table, there's usually about 15 minutes left until guests arrive, and I'm left debating ...more
