This is my favorite way to eat soup. A 16 oz copper pot for one!


Hey guys! It felt so great to be back in the kitchen after having a week off! Thanks to all of you who came out to the market last week. 

It’turning into winter before our eyes and can you believe it, there’s still tomatoes and a bit of corn in the market! Mostly, however, I’m shifting my attention to the winter harvest. Kanochas, Butternuts, parsnips, beets, potatoes…the bounty never ends! The upcoming soups will be full of these delights and I can’t wait to show them off to you! 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week 

Monday in Baywood Park, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria 

1 . adzuki bean and barley ( I’m seasoning this one a little differently this week…so come try it out!) 

2 . creamy parsnip sage

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!

Rested up!

Meet Peanut, adopted this weekend by chef Alyx Gille. Soon to be the most gourmet dog on the central coast.

Wow, you guys, what a great week off! Thank You for giving up your soup last week so I could have one of the best vacations ever! I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and had lots to be thankful for. 

This year, I’m thankful for all the people who adopted pets from the shelters. You guys, Woods Humane Shelter adopted almost all their cats and dogs over the weekend, including Peanut (this week’s photo), adopted by Chef Alyx Gille of Good Tides (Monday, Thursday and Saturday farmers markets). For those of you with a new furry family member, I wish you years of unconditional love and fun!

What. a. week. 

This is Em. This is also a tomato worm. Just a reminder that the world is beautiful.

As a cook, I have found that tastebuds hold no bias based on gender, race, political preference or socioeconomic status. Food unites us. The need for food unites us. 

This week has been a barrage of hate, anxiety, uncertainties and discontentment but I want you to know that in my 10 square feet of the world, you are loved. You are accepted and I appreciate you. 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week :

Central Coast Love!


I was very fortunate to grow up on a ranch in Los Osos. As a kid, the dogs and I would spend hours, sometimes days hiking around and exploring the property. Endless adventure. Now, as an adult, I’m now realizing  that while I had a super awesome childhood, I missed out on a lot of my hometown, Los Osos !  Thankfully, my husband  ( born in Cayucos….yes, actually born!) is up for the task of taking me to some super amazing, undiscovered ( to me) places on the central coast. Dude could have his own tour company, I swear! This weekend, we hit up the quarry on the mountian bikes. Once at the top of the hill, it overlooks the precious estuary . I was blown away…..plus, funny thing, it also looked right at my childhood ranch. full circle. 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week : 

Monday In Baywood Park, Thursday in Morro Bay: ( no soup in cambria this Friday ! )

1. Turkish red lentil

2. Corn Chowder

invasion!


Have you guys been affected by the pincer bug invasion?! Am I the only one who didn’t know they could fly!? Thankfully, my cat, Tonto, does not tollerate them in his house (well, my house, but you know…cat). Anyone need to rent my cat? Ha! Hopefully the upcoming cool weather will slow them down so we can focus on more important matters, like our halloween costumes…and SOUP!
