Returning Home

by Femme Fraîche April 19, 2013

HomeCollageAnd just like that, more than two weeks went by without a post! That’s what returning home will do – eat up all of your days, just lazily spending time, with nary a realization of just where it’s all going or how it’s been spent. Hours lost around the kitchen table over tea, on small walks in the sun that dared to stay out whole days at a time. It all flew right by in a blink despite the slowed pace of having nothing really required of me. Honestly, I was grateful for it. Because while all I have going right now is a Ph.D. and an unsuccessful job hunt, it feels heavier each week that goes by. It’s a process, I know; a transition. But it’s not for high-achieving Virgos who base self-worth on production. No, ma’am.

I’m back in Minneapolis now just a few days, invigorated as I can be met with the embrace of sub-freezing temperatures and a blizzard. Bear and the Meows make it all easier, of course; homey in a completely different, but still as lovely and filling kind of way. But as I send applications out into the ether and the days after crossing my fingers, it’s cooking and crafting and making something of this space that feeds me right now, that is fuel. Though I’m not happy about the weather, I’m looking forward to hunkering down for the next few days and making some yummy things, having creative femme time with my dear friend, Charlotte, and ultimately, sharing the outcomes with you.

My (freshly manicured!) nails are itching to get busy and since I’m back to my schedule, new posts are on their way. There’s coconut custard pie to be discussed and devoured, some key tips for making big scores as we approach garage/yard/flea market season, and some ruminations on creating small first gardens without digging your grave aside it out of frustration. Thanks for staying tuned, y’all.

Maple Cream Easter Eggs

by Femme Fraîche March 20, 2016

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Using a...

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
