I’m taking a brief break from recipes today to share a special Mother’s Day post that’s been on my heart for awhile. Do you ever feel like you have a mean girl in your head? Sometimes I feel like Regina George is resting on my shoulder, pointing out my flaws, and reminding me of all the ways I don’t stack up. The things we say to ourselves in our heads are often far worse than anything we’d say to another human being. And you know what? I’m tired of listening to the mean girl in my head. I hope this post will spur us to treat ourselves with kindness, patience, and grace even in the midst of our failures. You are precious, friends. Thanks for reading along and I’ll be back with more recipes next week!
Baking is my love language, and one of my best expressions are these Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins. When I feel helpless or can’t find the words to say, I make these simple, hearty, nourishing muffins. They’re an offering, another way to let the ones you love know you care.
I’m bringing a tender heart and these Red Wine Baked Mushrooms with Crispy Parmesan to the table today. I hope you’ll pull up a chair and join me.

Today, I’m sharing this simple summer appetizer made with sweet roasted cherry tomatoes and a mound of warm tangy goat cheese. Plus, I share why I believe in the power of neighbor food. Friends, I have to be honest. My heart has been heavy the past few weeks. The weight of the news coming out of Iraq Read More
This post is completely outside the realm of the norm here at Neighborfood. It has been languishing in my drafts file for weeks, waiting until I get the guts to hit publish. As much as I love sharing all of my happy foodie experiences with you all, I also want this to be a space Read More
Supremely tender and fluffy Garlic Cheddar Swirled Brioche Rolls made the 10 minute, no knead way! It seems I have a moment with every experimental recipe when I’m positive things won’t work out. For this bread, it happened almost immediately. This brioche recipe comes from the totally genius Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day Read More
This classic recipe delivers a subtly sweet, cinnamony Custard Pie. It’s my mom’s specialty and it simply wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it.

I’ll admit, this season hasn’t been the easiest for Read More
