I’m excited to announce that I’m offering a series of cooking classes on Zoom called Mondays with Molly. Each two-hour class will feature two to three recipes that I will demonstrate from start to finish. Attendees are encouraged to cook along with me and ask questions, but your level of participation is totally up to you. Sitting back and observing with a cup of tea or glass of wine is perfectly fine. The classes will be recorded for everyone who signs up so you can refer back to them and cook at your convenience.Continue reading “Zoom Cooking Class”
I’m expanding my brand! Sounds so girl boss of me, right? Lol. My daughters will cringe reading that, as they should. I’m no girl boss. More like a grown-ass widowed mom trying to reinvent her life and make a living boss. Hopefully, I don’t look too tired while I’m at it. No one will mistake me for a snappy young entrepreneur effortlessly TikTok-ing her way into millions of homes, and I’m just fine with that. Above all, I am aiming for authenticity as I grow, and I am quite incautiously optimistic about the road ahead.Continue reading “Wit & Thyme”
If you’re expecting the Easter bunny this weekend, you might want to serve these roasted carrots over a bed of garlicky kale. Even if you’re not, this is a great spring side dish that’s super healthy with a touch of sweetness. If you don’t have maple sugar, you can substitute brown sugar or coconut sugar. I like the maple because it’s distinctive flavor pairs nicely with the carrots and it’s a little less sweet than regular sugar. Try Maple Sugar Carrots with Garlic Kale alongside Roasted Leg of Lamb with Rosemary Mint Au Jus, Roasted Baby Potatoes, and Grandma’s Rolls. Maybe add Lemon Coconut Cake for dessert. I’m getting really hungry now, so I’ll keep this short.Continue reading “Maple Sugar Carrots with Garlic Kale”
Hello dear readers. I thought I’d do a little rambling post since I doubt I’ll get a new recipe in before 2023, and I definitely won’t get cards out to friends and family this year. Consider this my very limited year-end review and heartfelt holiday greeting.Continue reading “Goodbye 2022, It’s Been Real”
The need for good self-care is more essential than ever. Life has always held challenges, but it seems like everyone I know is facing difficult circumstances or significant life changes lately. At the very least, things are uncertain and weird for people, and it’s easy to fall into habits of self-soothing that might not be optimal for one’s health.Continue reading “Instant Pot Steel-Cut Oats”
We celebrated Bob’s extraordinary life in the lovely Aspen Hall at Shevlin Park last Saturday.
Many people, including some of Bob’s family, couldn’t make it, so I thought I’d share his bio from the program and a video Ella put together that we played at the celebration.
This might come off as a little “woo woo,” but I don’t care. As I stated in my last post, I’m making up my own rules, and I was given a gift Monday morning that I want to share.Continue reading “Gifts Amid the Grief”
It may seem strange to be hearing from me so soon. I am still in a state of shock and disbelief, and I am not ready for much one on one communication. But, as my dear friend said to me a few days ago, there is no guidebook, so I’m making up my own rules, and I feel compelled to share this message with you.Continue reading “a few words”
Could there BE a more perfect holiday breakfast treat than these Cranberry Clementine Muffins? Sorry, watching Friends and channeling my inner Chandler Bing. I’m too tired to be witty on my own tonight.Continue reading “Cranberry Clementine Muffins”
As I work on the cookbook, I am reminded of many great stories from my family’s restaurant, the Treehouse, which operated in Eugene from 1977 to 1997. I needed no reminder of this story, though. This short tale of the rattling doors holds a very special place in my heart and soul.Continue reading “Rattling Doors”
