*This post was created in partnership with KitchenAid. All photos, recipes, and opinions are my very own.

You can still see the process... Read more »

Oaxaca, Mexico Travel Guide

Fri, 13 Apr 2018 19:55:57 +0000

  One of the most frequently asked questions I get is “where do you get your inspiration?” It’s a great question and I ask it of others all the time, especially those who have been working in the same industry for many years. When you make your passion your career it’s vital that you continue... Read more »

Garlic Confit, Arugula and Prosciutto Sandwich

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 22:01:45 +0000

This past week marked the busiest our little shop has seen since it’s opening. We opened our doors and filled the table four of the past seven days and although my body is tired my heart is so full. News is spreading, inquiries are filling my inbox and I’m constantly on the hunt for inspiration... Read more »

Devil’s Food Cake with Blood Orange Buttercream

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 00:24:48 +0000

I’m delighted to see that there are a few signs of spring showing. But before my mind races to rhubarb and frilly herbs and sweet green peas, and peppery radishes, and sweet asparagus, and and and…. I have yet another blood orange recipe for you. It was never my intention to tease you with this... Read more »

Citrus and Chicory Salad with Candied Pine Nuts and Fried Rosemary

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 04:36:16 +0000

Since the shop opened I’ve kept a running Google Doc of all of the menus we’ve served. I make a few notes so I can remember who was there, any memorable moments and things I want to adjust for the next time. As I was going through the growing doc I noticed several repeated recipes.... Read more »

Welcome to the Shop! Photo by Erin Schedler Our doors are finally open. You know how long I’ve been waiting to say that?! The idea to create a shop open to the public for workshops, meals, and a few of my favorite things in and out of the kitchen came at the start of 2017.... Read more »

Kitchen Unnecessary + Fire Roasted Pumpkin Fondue

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 18:31:49 +0000

“Cooking with fire means that you become more aware as a cook. you have to master two living things: the fire and the ingredient. For me, cooking is like music, it’s completely different when you do it unplugged.” – Niklas Ekstedt, Food From the Fire    Between my two brothers and I we have nine children.... Read more »

Frizzled Brussels Sprout Leaves with Chili and Maple

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 20:51:12 +0000

The quietness in this space is in no way an indication of a lack of cooking. The cooking I have been doing has been less calculated and getting back to the pure pleasure of tossing in this and that without pausing to grab the measuring cups. For months I detailed the intricacies of what hits... Read more »

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 21:13:28 +0000

There are several of you, I’m sure, that say “a gift guide on December 13?!

If you’re a newsletter subscriber you received this... Read more »

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:59:02 +0000

It feels so good to be writing in this space right now. I always hate being away but there are seasons that demand it. Like the ones in which you spend writing a book. The manuscript is in. Oh my word, you guys, I’ve not even officially shared the title of the next book with... Read more »

Grilled Peach Toast with Crispy Prosciutto and Pecorino

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 16:16:43 +0000

I’m rarely one to jump into trends with much force. Okay, fine there was that one pair of hammer pants in the third grade but I returned them immediately after seeing myself in the mirror. But I’ve never tucked into a smoothie bowl capped with perfectly frosted frozen berries or made anything “unicorn”. The one... Read more »

Grilled Cheese with Charred Scallions

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 17:47:41 +0000

I get on these kicks where I become obsessed with an ingredient, method or flavor and then I’ll find myself putting whatever the thing may be into all the things. For awhile, thanks to my friend Megan, I was toasting oats every single morning and making all sorts of batches of oatmeal and/or oatmeal granola... Read more »

Broiled Cheese Toast with Tomatoes and Coriander

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 15:40:27 +0000

*This post is in partnership with Dietz & Watson. They believe that one of the best choices we can make is the table. To gather friends, family, strangers and sit at the table in the presence of good food. A couple weeks ago I did just that. Surrounded by old and new friends we enjoyed... Read more »

Perfect Roast Chicken with Salsa Verde

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 20:27:57 +0000

It takes a lot for me to say something is perfect. Perfection isn’t really worth striving for but for us this chicken is as close as it gets. There are endless variations. Sometimes there’s a mustard laced butter studded with herbs that I nudge under the skin. Other times there are a few lemons and... Read more »

Introducing the Not Without Salt Shop

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 20:07:41 +0000

We painted the walls Origami White by Sherwin Williams. The concrete floor will get a clear varnish over the top.  The exterior was painted to resemble a Pendelton blanket now it’s a very dark gray/blue (really, it’s nearly black) with white trim. Deck stain TBD. Wedding day, birth of my children, pub day, hanging that... Read more »

Blueberry Yogurt Bowl with Seedy Granola Crisps

Sat, 13 May 2017 03:09:59 +0000

The topic of motherhood is in the air. Just in the last week both my friends Sara and Megan wrote about the subject so beautifully. I’m thrilled to see our community approaching the subject with a graceful honesty and vulnerability. Both of them have toddlers, a stage I’m relieved to be out of, but I remember... Read more »
