Endive is in, and this gorgeous simple salad with walnuts, parsley, and blue cheese can be as elegant or as rustic as you like. Note that @chefstephanievalentine, who created this recipe, warns against packaged endive, because what are they hiding? Buy the loose, and the paler the better.

I’m asking myself what I would do or say differently if I always kept this in mind. I have a tendency to be rather, ahem, direct at times, and to be flippant at others. Not good. This will be a good practice for the week. I look forward to your comments.

Ih my gracious was literally driving out of our driveway this morning and THIS arose from our neighbor’s pasture across the road. When I got closer I could see they were loaded up and ready to go, so I stopped to see if they might lift off. The burners fired a few times—they’re loud!—but alas, I had to scuttle along. But was very exciting.

One of the things that has brought me so much joy about my latest book has been sharing a little piece of the place we call home. From a peek at the day to day around the ranch, to the people who bring it to life, to the gatherings, tables, and meals inspired by it. Head to my link in bio and come on in.

Feminine, fun, and easier than it looks? Hun you’re playin’ my song.⁠

If you have been following me, you know my fondness for simple florals used en masse to create a simple but stunning effect. So simple in fact, you still have time to put something together for Valentine’s. ⁠

My choice? Cherry blossoms (like this stunning bouquet photographed by @vasiaphotography), pink tulips (grocery store flowers are fine!) , and lots of votive candles for good measure. See the result in my stories, and #happyvalentinesday

Join me to sketch and paint along the Camino de Santiago. Sketching is a prayer of seeing and a practice of being in the moment, at one with your vision and with what surrounds you. Where better to undertake a pilgrimage in creativity than in the footsteps of centuries of pilgrims before us, on one of the world’s most storied and beautiful paths. Traveling light limits materials to sketchbook, watercolors, and iPad, and we will have expert instruction in iPad art.
This will be a very small group, with very comfortable accommodation, the first week in May, walking (of course) and driving (some), beginning in Pamplona and ending in Santiago de Compostela. DM me with your email address for more information.⁠ Photo by @michaelgeorge⁠

We don’t call this choco-gasm “Deep, Dark, Chocolate Mystery” for nothing. Like love itself, this almost flourless dark chocolate cake will knock a grown man to his knees. And then who knows, he might propose? (grab the recipe through my #linkinbio).⁠

In the “Sweethearts Dinner” chapter of California Cooking and Southern Style, along with a lustily delicious menu of Endive, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad, succulent roast “Pork Valentine” and Potato Celery Root Puree. I think I can just stop right there don’t you. Link to blog in profile for cake recipe and to order book. Also available in e-book if you can’t wait, from Amazon and others.
