Shop for a cause this Christmas with these beautiful gifts that give back.

When I began assembling this collection of gifts that give back a few weeks ago, I had no idea how many inspiring businesses and organizations I would find. I had to cut myself off eventually, because I could've spent weeks researching, pinning, and admiring the amazing products and work being done by socially conscious businesses and Read More


I've been keeping a little secret the past few months, and I'm about ready to bust! I'm so happy to finally be able to let you all in on the very best news. We are expecting a baby! We are thrilled, terrified, excited, anxious, and overwhelmed with gratitude and joy. I've been itching to talk 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. For today's #SundaySupper, my friends and I are celebrating Thanksgiving just like you do--by gathering around the table, giving thanks, and sharing great food. I'll admit, this season hasn't been the easiest for Read More

Fluffy cinnamon spiced apple pancakes stacked high with pecans, bacon, and sweet cider syrup. I know things have been a little quiet around here this week. I didn't really plan on disappearing from the interwebs for five days, but sometimes life happens. Or, more accurately, sometimes life slaps you in the face, sets your butt Read More

Today I'm super excited to be guest posting over at Everyday Liturgy, a blog which seeks to incorporate faith and spirituality into the nitty gritty of our everyday lives. Here's the beginning of my post: I have never considered myself a cook. I came to the kitchen through cookies and pies, measuring cups and pastry Read More

Baking bread is an exercise in faith. It’s mystery and miracle and mess all wrapped in one yeasted loaf. I’m a reluctant bread baker. I come to the process a skeptic. Even as I watch yeast send frothy bubbles to the surface of warm water, I wonder, will this actually work? And as dough works Read More

For the most part, I try to avoid statistics. I’m more of a words kind of girl. Words have the power to etch faces into the fabric of my mind. Stories put flesh on the skeletons of a number. But occasionally, a statistic moves me. It sticks.  I can’t shake it. A number. Chasing after Read More
