55 degree difference

My husband, who works at Hearst Castle, called me from work to tell me that it was 109 up there the other day…my thermometer in cambria read 53 at the same time…to me, this is crazy!

It’s been georgeous on the coast! I spent time with the dogs in Big Sur and taught Stitch (our new girl) how to swim. She is getting the hang of it but is really into “floating”  with her whole head under water, which is weird (see photo above). She will get the hang of it eventually:)

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

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

1.  Creamy red pepper bisque
2.  Southwestern style black bean

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

Stitch and Scooter

We have a fun new addition to our fur family! Her name is Stitch and brace yourself for an overload of new dog photos:) stitch is a 4 year old border collie who needed to RUN! We run 5 miles every other day (with Scooter, of course) and play ball on the east west ranch in the mornings and evenings. she loves the beach and the water and even loves Tonto, our cat. It’s a full house over here and we couldn’t be happier! 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week :
Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria :
1. corn chowder (made with Steve’s organic corn)
2. Tuscan white bean

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

All this media coverage of “the landlord” is really cutting into my “ignorance is bliss” approach to surfing. Stay safe out there mermaids and mermen. We kept clear of the surf line up this weekend and hopped on the the motos for a little ride up hwy 1. A customer told me on Friday that he loved all the out of state license plates this time of year so in decided to count them on my ride and saw 12 different states. How fun! Hopefully everyone is appreciating our beautiful coastline  and picking up their trash!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week.
Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria :
1.  Split pea ( green )
2.  Minestrone gnocchi ( with Steve’s organic corn and Jorge ‘ s orhanic heirloom tomatoes )

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars! Also, a customer of mine has a wonderful photography show at the arts center in Cambria. His name is Joe Josephs and he spends half his time in cambria half in new York so it’s the best of both worlds.

Happy 4th!

Summer is upon us and along with it all the super fun central coast activities!  The husband and I did what we do best this weekend which is to get lost in the hills of big sur with Scooter dog and play play play!

Tomatoes!

In my dad's orchard stealing all his fruit:)

Nothing feels more like summer to me than a big sheet of roasted tomatoes. I like to get a good char on the skins to build the tomatoe’s perfect flavor profile, sweet, salty, acid…it’s all there with this chef’s dream fruit. I’m using Slo Grown Produce ‘ s georgeous tomatoes this week in a new soup called Ribolitta.

Ribolitta is an Italian white bean and vegetable soup with white bread. Kirsten of Little Red Hen Bread was kind enough to make some extra sourdough loaves for me for a little non traditional twist. The test batch turned out great and I’ve been eating it all weekend!

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

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria :
1.  Ribolitta (see above discription)
2. Creamy carrot quinoa

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

Ahhh. Normal.

Check out this flower crown by kendra! Farmers market flowers!

I can’t tell you guys how happy I am to be  back in my kitchen, back to my huge pots and back with my Farmers market buddies! The sound of onions sizzling in organic coconut oil is not something one may think could be missed, but when I heard it, I realized I really really did! We had an amazing honeymoon…like really really great but every time I leave the central coast, no matter how lovely my destination, I’m reminded that it’s my favorite place in the world.

Thank you all for your patience these past few weeks as the schedule has been all messed up but rest assured, it’s back to normal (until 4th of July messes it all up again).

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

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay, and Friday in Cambria :
1.  Turkish Bride Soup ( red lentils, carmalized onion, and meyer lemon )
2. Creamy roasted zucchini (the official start of summer soup! )

Also, congratulations to everyone who graduated this week! What an amazing accomplishment!

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