Slow, methodical fluting of pie crust
A handful of aromatic herbs from the garden
The scent of an heirloom tomato just plucked off the vine
Shelves bowing under the weight of the summer’s bounty preserved in jars
My roots hold strong in a home flanked by apple orchards. My sense of belonging stems from the affectionate and careful preparation of food and the enjoyment of sharing it with those around me.
