Learning how to make bâtard at the house with @chefjeffreywall. My little starter baby (birthed from whole grain rye) makes some damn good bread! Second loaf looking light years better than the first...especially after some Christmas champagne.😎👍🏻🎉🍾

Perfecting my personal pizza game.🍕 The sourdough is killin' it! Also, hello amazing lonzino from Italy that is finally out of the back of the fridge and onto a pizza (where it always belonged).👍🏻❤️

Annnnnnnd now all I can think about is pasta... #pasta #homemadepasta #thingsorganizedneatly #lilappelcooks with @chefjeffreywall ❤️🍝

Two toasts in one day edition.🗞Late lunch, using up all the things in the fridge, I get reallllll excited about putting mushrooms on everything, and let's remember your salad *should* at least be as big as your toast, toast. #toastinnuendo
.

Sautéed baby bellas, charred poblano and red onion from @nativerootsfarmin, and a slice of Muenster melted on top because who doesn't love cheese on an open face sandwich. Spicy salad mix also from the farm (3 lettuces and baby kale), dressed in oil, lemon juice and @jacobsensaltco flaky salt. Happiness on a plate.🥗

Barely awake, out of good coffee, holy basil tea will do, I'm so exhausted and all I really want to do is sit in a sauna and pretend that I'm in a rustic cabin in a frosty Nordic country with caribou and amazing sweaters, sprawled out in front of a fire, eating all sorts of delicious preserved things, drinking bourbon out of mugs, laughing, loving and being ravaged... oh wait...am I in a Nordic cabin or on Instagram?...are people reading this?...oh sh*t - well, at least I can say whatever the hell I want on social media while somehow managing to maintain honesty with my 'authentic self' (ha) toast. Whew. This one was a doozy! And yes, I did find a sauna in rural America. There were no handsome men in there (or caribou, or mugs of bourbon) but there were a few giggling grey-haired ladies who shared camaraderie for a brief sit (though they were probably giggling because they were the ones at the silk flower incident...🌸)

Organic peanut butter, bananas, toasted almonds, @nativerootsfarmin honey, butter and @jacobsensaltco flaky salt, all on my sourdough bread. Tasty town.

Pasta school returns! All it takes is some foraged mushroom & a little vino to get the wheels turnin'...👌🏻🍷🍄✨ #pasta #lilappelcooks #tortellini #happytwoyears @chefjeffreywall

Made @chefjeffreywall some tortellini from scratch for our two year.✨Filling was made up of my foraged Nebraska maitake (TSA didn't even bat an eyelash. Ha!), garden sage, ricotta, Parmesan, sautéed garlic and shallot, a little bit of preserved lemon and a dash of salt. So. Damn. Tasty! #pasta #backatit #lilappelcooks #midnightspecial #tortellini

I've been kinda obsessed with perfecting my own kind of breakfast lately. I'm not a huge fan of the breakfast bowl trend as I'm not a fruit junkie in the winter (I'd rather put it in a smoothie) and I'm still on the fence about granola - too sweet, not warming - but give me some roasted sweet potatoes + pepitas, coconut cream and steel cut oats and my belly is in total happy town. 🔥🌅☀🍴

Got my first cold bug of the year🤒...stuck in bed with a bowl of spicy cayenne-ginger loaded broth and farro spaghetti. Here's hoping some rest will take me back to more fun (aka crab Rangoon from scratch - pictured here).

The way I cook and learned to cook was literally as simple as always trying to use every last bit of everything in the fridge. Frugality. You know, saving those monies and making shit work with whatcha got. (It's actually pretty fun.) So instead of toast : brown rice congee! Brown rice, toasted almonds and coconut from dinner the night before, coconut cream infused with star anise + clove, 🍍juice from sourdough starter ventures, farm honey, cinnamon, love and BUTTER. Oh and @jacobsensaltco flaky salt - but I put that on everything, apparently.🤘🏻

It's Friday! Thank the lawd. This week has been a doozy and my brain is fried from weighing pros and cons and all the details. So : sometimes you just wanna be fancy, and are still proud of that last half of the remaining piece of your first go at flatbread and want to put your lunch on a beautiful @eastforkpottery plate just because toast. T.G.I.F.
Cheers to the weekend! 🎉🍻🙌🏻

Garlic herb flatbread by moi, goat cheese, baby frilly mustard greens, Thai basil leaves and tops from the farm, moonglow tomato from the garden, oil, pepper and flaky salt from salt crush @jacobsensaltco.✨

Been in head down mode the last couple days, but somehow managed to crank out some roasted tomato salsa with aji límons, roasted tomato sauce, preserved whole tomatoes for whatever your pleasure and these little dudes which my fam likes to roast, freeze and pack for pasta dishes through the winter. 🤘🏻🍅#workworkwork #tomatoes for days #nativerootsfarm #organicfarm #ediblemichiana #bonappetit #dscolor #roasted #onthetable #farmfood #takeyouwild #lilappelcooks

Two days old, and already kicking ass.🤘🏻🍞🎉It's no secret that I've been missing the bread game, but I wanted to wait to start a starter (ha) until I felt like I could take care of one again, and yeah, there. she. is. Sweet baby rye sourdough starter devouring all that a NW Indiana farmhouse has to offer, (and some organic🍍juice,too).

Overwhelmed by all the feelings and decisions I've had to make in the span of a year, worried for friends and strangers in the path of Irma, just trying to hold it down on an intense day toast. The week of September 11, 2001 - the first week I'd lived away from home. I started art school @scaddotedu where I found myself instantly immersed in a crowd of feisty, like-minded, wanna change the world bohemian badasses who actually gave a shit about their effect on things. A lot of them were from NYC, and had just moved to Savannah, Georgia a week before, like me. They were just beginning their eighteen year old lives. ...
It was a raw moment in time; sitting in a dorm room watching those visuals on a shitty TV with people I barely knew, yet loved instantly - fiercely. People who lost family and friends and were only just beginning to grasp the idea of leading a life of their own. It shaped me. It still does. Love to my fam near and far.❤️ #dadshomemadebread, Butter, peanut butter, banana, cereal dregs, farm honey, @jacobsensaltco flaky salt and love. Always.

Biscuits. It's been, like, a thousand years since I made biscuits. But today was a gloom-ridden, winter encroaching, on the brink of sick exhaustion day...with soup...so biscuits. Buttery, lots o' layers, perfectly crispy-bottomed vessels for more butter and a slather of the new batch of clover honey from the farm.🍯 Shitty overhead lighting thanks to #thestove (and sunsets happening too early, already). #biscuits #lilappelcooks #layers #puff #crispybottomed #bakedgoods #tastyAF

Preservation mode.✨I'm happy to report that despite the wacky way in which our current government operates, our inability to appreciate and accept the reality of science wholly, and mother Nature's complete and utter power over ALL OF US, all the people dear to me in Houston, San Juan, and Florida are safe and acting intelligently to manage their situations. Sometimes you just have to revel in the complete insanity that is everyone on this planet managing to do this little thing called life day in and day out no matter what hand gets dealt. Take care of each other out there.👌🏻🔥 #love #grit and #pickles #lilappelcooks #nurture #fermentationstation #magichour #bokeh #okay

Toast! I'm calling this one : Happiness in the AM when you wake up with your porch door open and all your clothes on in your Dad's amazing 'cabin sweater' that you adopted years ago, with 80s bangs from accidentally running through the sprinkler yesterday evening because you were too busy taking photos and not paying attention and now it's 50 degrees outside (and inside) your room toast! Second option: Holy sh*t it's Friday toast!❄️❄️🍞

Simple, running around the yard answering emails while brother drives up with 26 stewing hens (alive this morning, dinner soon) returned from our Amish processing team (all ladies by the way🤘🏼💃) , having your plans changed 10k times in a matter of hours, not sure why life is not letting me plan things toast. Sometimes you just have to roll with it!🌪🔥Garden Moonglow tomato, Thai basil and goat cheese from the farm, olive oil, flaky salt from @jacobsensaltco, pepper on #dadshomemadebread. Plus peach smoothie, also tasty, not pictured.

I call this one 'Running out the door because you're always 10 minutes late and honey, you can eat THAT in the car' toast. Half of a peach that someone left on the counter, spelt flake cereal 'granola' (tail end of a bag - crumbled and supposedly 'finished'), farm honey, another farmer friend's peaches, homemade goat cheese and Dad's homemade bread. Breakfast party for one continues...🍞🎉

Lazy Sunday at the farm. My bro and his lady cooking us lunch, everyone sharing stories about memories of childhood, this area, their families. Me : randomly darting from the breezeway into the house to do impromptu kitchen projects with leftover farm goods... Roasted some pumpkin for tortellini filling, then roasted the seeds (pepitas!) for #nutrients and salad pizazz. Just found out the pumpkin variety is called Winter Luxury...oooo-la-la!!🔥#sexy #pumpkin #sundaybrunch #nativerootsfarm #organicfarm #sustainability #nowaste is real #luxury #indianafarm #takeyouwild #pepitas #lilappelcooks

Muscat grapes - the beginnings of a vinegar baby. Back to the weekend fermentation projects. Missed ya, kitchen!✨🍇 #lilappelcooks #fermentation #muscatgrapes #souvenir #smfm #futurevinegar #nutrition #goodness #nowaste #florabellafarm

Summer in a bowl.🍅✨I call this the two-second tomato salad. Slice tomatoes (first of the season here! 🙌🏻), add cucumber, Thai basil, olive oil, dash of white balsamic (cranberry, pear - I'm obsessed), salt & pepper. Toss, and board the train to #yumtown. #lunch #tomatosalad #lilappelcooks #easypeasy #bonappetit #nativerootsfarm

Focaccia. First time, still needs work but that's what you get for falling asleep and having to rush...

Today was the first time I've baked sourdough by request and I was stressin' - thinking it would be horrible or that I'd mess it up royally. I'm usually making bread *while* working on photo editing or design in my home office - running in and out of the studio into the kitchen whenever necessary for mixing, folding, baking, etc. Ha! Spaz central - which would probably stress other people out more...but having a 'brunch is served' time was more daunting to yours truly somehow. Yay for makin' it happen - and not totally destroying the loaf while carting it around.👍🏻🍎🍞🚕💨
