Small-Batch Boston Brown Bread with Smoked Fish

A classic New England treat steamed in a can, Boston Brown Bread is easy to make at home. The homemade version tastes so much better! The unique serving suggestion from a dearly missed restaurant is a perfect appetizer for an autumn feast! This small-batch version makes just enough.

The Sea & the Mountains: My Week in New England

New England does not disappoint when it comes to variety, which my travels to visit family and friends this past week showcased. I splashed in the ocean in Cape Ann, Massachusetts, and my ears popped (and my jaw dropped) in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Both locations make for lovely day trips/overnights from Boston, so I thought I’d share.

Sundry Wonders: A Walk in the Park with My Ghosts

Sundry Wonders is a weekly column featuring a photo gallery and meditation, based on walks I've taken with Ollie over the last week. Photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T4 (very much a beginner) or my Pixel 5 phone (if we walked in the middle of the day, or I was in a bit of a rush). I’d love to hear about and see what you experienced this week. Let me know in the comments!

Sundry Wonders is a weekly column featuring a photo gallery and meditation, usually based on walks I've taken with Ollie over the last week. Last week, however, I had adventures out on the town. Photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T4 (very much a beginner) or my Pixel 5 phone (if we walked in the middle of the day, or I was in a bit of a rush). I’d love to hear about and see what you experienced this week. Let me know in the comments!
