Capturing my love of whole foods, combined with the activity of a bustling kitchen.

A weekly collection of photos from the center of my home.

  • We are currently enjoying the best garden salads of the season. Unlike spring salads, fall salads have the benefit of tomatoes! I love radishes, peas, and the like... but tomatoes? Yes, please.
  • I wish I could find half loaf bread pans. Is there such a thing? Emily is the only person who regularly eats sandwiches, and for one person to make it through a whole loaf - well, it starts to get a little stale toward the end. If I had a half loaf pan I could make a small loaf every 3 days. I'm not thinking of a mini-pan (like we use to make quick breads for gift giving at the holidays), but a large pan, half-size.
  • Looking for a tasty, vegan creamed kale recipe? This has been a favorite for years. I skip the jalepeno. Any dark leafy green can be used. 
  • Really good vanilla ice cream drizzled with maple syrup? Now that is perfection.

Each day I find myself snapping a picture or two in the kitchen - a pile of ingredients, a table waiting for us to gather around, a sink full of soapy dishes, a cup of tea, dinner as it comes out of the oven - simple, everyday moments in the kitchen. These photos serve as a reminder of days gone by and as encouragement to carry on in this busy kitchen of ours when inspiration is lacking.

Every Thursday morning I'll post my photos from the week, words or recipes optional. Just glimpses into my kitchen and you're invited to do the same!


It's simple to join in:

  • On your blog, post photos taken in your kitchen throughout the week.
  • Words aren't necessary, your photos will tell the the story. Some of us enjoy adding a few thoughts to accompany the images... the choice is yours. 
  • Feel free to grab the brief description at the top of this post, or add a few words of your own to explain the project.)
  • Link back to this post so your readers can visit This Week In My Kitchen and join in. 
  • Come back here and link up your current post (not your main blog) so we can all visit your kitchen!
  • Join me every Thursday or the occasional Thursday if that works better for you.
  • Please be sure to only link up if you are participating in this series. Thank you!


I look forward to visiting your kitchens!
