Mother’s Day Brunch + RECIPE: Rhubarb Crisp Pancakes

Mother’s Day is really just a very poorly timed holiday.

Normal Life + RECIPE: Mashed Potato Fritter Benedict

Hi. Hello. How are you? It’s been so long since we’ve talked. You know talked about regular life things and not just my greenhouse, my travels, or my insanely loving endorsement of local products.
