Winter is just about here.
The crisp air builds a craving for…
Snowy white parsnips, knobby celeriac, sweet potatoes and also the elusive parsley root. Many of my favorite cold weather comfort foods fall right onto the table for Thanksgiving.
This image was part of a 22 page local booklet I styled and photographed to celebrate the holiday season. Details about this booklet may be found here.

I am keeping this post short, due to the holiday ahead, but just enough to share one of my favorite holiday recipes with you.
Since Thanksgiving is all about thankfulness and gratitude…
I want to thank all of my followers and new ones for sticking by while I run circles trying to find the time to post here. And for the many features I have been in over these last few months. Thank You!
It seems like ages since I was last here. I hope that you are all well.
Here is my recipe for a savory root pudding. Delicious!
If you are not one to favor parsnip or celeriac, you can choose your favorite starchy comforts for this one.
So here you go. Enjoy!
I wish you all very Happy Thanksgiving!
