We’re in the last few months of this year, friends . . . what-the-what?! Summer is winding down and I have to admit, it’s been a good one for us Smith Bites. Work projects haven’t allowed us as much garden time as we’d have liked (Halp!! The weeds have taken over!) but there have been plenty of naps on the deck, books read and floating in the pool – we’ll take it.

One would think that life without children means we have all the time in the world to bake, garden, read, lounge, visit family or other various and sundry activities; however, mid-life is proving to be full which […]

One of the best things about blogging is the people you meet who become lifelong friends; and when those friends are talented bakers, they write beautiful cookbooks and send a copy to you. Such is the case with Marbled, Swirled, and Layered written by our very good friend Irvin Lin of the wildly popular blog, Eat the […]

If you’re like me, school is back in session and most mornings the alarm comes way earlier than you’d like, am I right? In my house, there are lunches to pack, showers to be had, workouts to be completed and breakfast to be eaten – and sometimes I’d like something more than a green smoothie, […]

Anyone who has suffered with food allergies or sensitivities understands how difficult it can be to receive a definitive diagnosis and then move towards wellness – one step forward, two steps back; when it’s your child in the mix, the ante is upped big time. And that’s exactly the place Heather Christo found herself when one of her […]

GLUTEN-FREE FRESH CORN CAKES WITH GUACAMOLE

Thumbnail image for GLUTEN-FREE FRESH CORN CAKES WITH GUACAMOLE

These little corn cakes are quite tasty – we’ve made them during the winter months with frozen corn but I have to say, made with fresh, just-picked, milky sweet corn, a little splash of kefir for a bit of tang, a little heat from green chilies and topped with a guacamole veggie fusion – these […]

Summertime and the livin’ is easy . . . isn’t that what they say? The Professor and I have certainly enjoyed this gardening season – digging, yanking, pulling, mulching and planting these past several weeks. And we have bats!!! (Save the commentary; I’m aware I left myself wide open . . .) We hung a […]

TRAVEL – MARTHA’S VINEYARD WINE FESTIVAL

How fitting that a festival welcoming wine lovers from all over the nation is held every year on an island believed to be named for its proliferation of wild grapes when it was first discovered. Today, Martha’s Vineyard is not only known for its beautiful beaches, cliffs, lighthouses, farms and fishing villages, but also for […]

The Professor and I bought 40 pounds of Georgia peaches last summer and at the time, it seemed like a lot of peaches . . . it was a lot of peaches and we wondered if we’d finish them all over the fall and winter months before this season rolled around.

We managed to make it through The Professor’s first year of teaching at a new university – but wow, this year has sped by super fast!! He’ll continue to teach this summer but with a lighter student load and shorter days which means we’ll have more time for the garden and it also means we […]

We made it through winter and as I look out my dining room window, my tulip are blooming, the iris stalks stand high, the peony stems stand straight and tall like soldiers – buds will soon follow! The rose bushes are awake, full with brand new green-red stalks and buds; the hydrangeas have been pruned […]
