I love, love, love a good grocery store. Overflowing rainbow displays of fresh produce are the first to greet you, and then there are the wonderful bulk bins with infinite possibilities and always a mysterious legume or grain. Organic is the rule, not the exception. Going grocery shopping feels like an event, an escape – never a chore.

I don’t want to whine about the weather, I really don’t. I mean, I don’t necessarily have to live in Washington State. It’s a free country. And these dreary, gray winters are the price we pay for stellar spring days, glorious summers, and amazing autumns.

The weather here in the Seattle area has been so, so strange. Just over a week ago, a dense fog descended upon us, and didn’t lift until yesterday.

It makes me feel uncool to admit this because she’s so dang popular, but The Pioneer Woman is one of my favorite food personalities. And you know what? I’m just going to say it. I think Ree is pretty awesome. I thoroughly enjoy so many aspects of her blog – her writing is engaging and her photography stunning – and I’ve always had success when I’ve tried her recipes. And her TV show is totally fun to watch.

Gosh, I really love Pinterest. I really want to say I unapologetically love Pinterest but I guess I feel maybe a little ashamed that I’m so into it.

But hey … better to pin Pure Deliciousness rather than eat it, right? At least, calorie-wise??

Awhile back I pinned this gorgeous image of Red Lentil Coconut Soup from a wonderful blog called Scaling Back. I love the soup pot. I love the bowls. I love the lentils scattered about. Wonderful photo, and the soup? Yum.

Yet another thing that’s deceptively simple to whip up on your own: homemade cranberry sauce. So much better than a can-shaped blob, this cranberry sauce recipe unites cranberries with a natural counterpart, apples. Add ground cinnamon and cloves, and not only will your turkey and stuffing have a delicious companion, but your house’ll smell divine, too.
