Grilled Garlic Sausage and Gnocchi Skillet Dinner


This is a sponsored post. While I was compensated financially, all opinions are my own.

I really love these late August days. This is the point of summer when I'm savouring every detail, every day. I'm thoroughly enjoying ice cream on the patio, as the dragonflies swoop under the trees, which are beginning to change, but I pretend I don't see the yellowing of leaves. Whenever I put on a pretty summer dress, I feel the fabric and admire the way it swirls about my hips, all the while thinking that this could be the last time I wear it this year. In the evening, I love how the warm breeze moves the curtains, just so. The other night I fell asleep to the sound of thunder rumbling in the distance, and I’m almost certain there was a smile on my face. I savour every moment summer and I have together, whether it's driving out on country roads to look at the stars, or one last dip of the toes into the lake. And, I’m eating all of the delicious things like peaches and corn and tomatoes, oh my! For anyone who loves food, this is the best time of the year. Savour it all, while you can.

Summer Food: Caramelized Pear and Prosciutto Pizza

This is a sponsored post. I was compensated financially by California Bartlett Pears.
All thoughts and opinions about these pears are my own.

Hey there! It’s been forever since I dropped in to say hello. I’ve been up to my eyeballs
in vegetables and I’m so happy to report that my manuscript for Vegetables: A Love Story
is finally completed! I’m so darn proud of everything I’ve written and the recipes are
soooooo good. I can't wait for you to see them in about one year! The manuscript is
in the hands of my trusty publisher (TouchWood Editions), and now I’m just trying to
relax and get some summertime fun in before I get the edits handed back to me and
the work starts once again. It feels quite strange to not be sitting at the computer,
writing the recipes and stories. I mean, this is what I’ve been doing for the better part
of the year, and it’s kinda hard to train my brain to think of something else. I think
this means an escape is required. Somewhere quiet and woodsy and not too many
people around, because COVID. If not, then my backyard will have to do, alongside
a good book and a cold beverage or two. I have to admit that it’s been fun to cook
something that’s not for the cookbook, and this pizza is what I’m loving lately. It’s
got caramelized pears, for Pete’s sake, so you know it’s gonna be awesome!
