…and eat it too!

We posted this cake for National Dessert Day on Instagram (October 14), which, silly us, we thought was everyday! It comes from The Maverick Cookbook, by Lynn Cline (Leaf Storm Press) that we styled and photographed last year. And, if you’re wondering, the cake tastes as good as it looks. Enjoy! Teahouse Chocolate Cake Inspired by […]

Chicken Run!

This week, we head off for a 10-day RV trip with dear friends. Seven of us in a 30-footer. These are friends we have known for 25-plus years (oh dear!), so let’s all hope we come back with our friendship intact and that we haven’t pecked each other to bits. Not surprisingly, we’ve been thinking about […]

Hail Caesar!

Roots to River Farm, just across the river from us in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, grows the tastiest green garlic, and we think this juicy salad is one of the finer ways to use it. A whole bulb goes into the dressing, while some of the stem is chopped and added to the croutons as they toast. […]

Morning Coffee

Of the many things we love one is a small pleasure, easy to attend to. A quick but civilized coffee with a friend or friends. Sometimes all it takes is a text—come by for coffee at the studio? And for 10 minutes you get to sit or stand, catch up then proceed with your day feeling, somehow, […]

Maverick New Mexico

 Working on a book is funny…when you’re in the middle of it, you’re so immersed. It’s all you think about. It wakes you up in the middle of the night. Sometimes the process is smooth, and sometimes you curse it. (And when it’s a cookbook, most of your meals come from it!) Then you ship […]

sour cherries

true, the season just passed. But the memory of the morning we went to a friends farm to pick a bucket of sour cherries has stayed with us. It’s quiet, simple pleasure. We wanted to post a few pics here as a way to remind ourselves as we travel in July and coming up again […]

New Mexico in Lambertville

A few weeks ago we were virtually transported to New Mexico. Not much makes us happier than the thought of New Mexico (except for actually being there). But this was pretty good. We spent four very full days shooting pictures for a new cookbook that our friend Andy will be publishing through his new publishing company, Leaf Storm Press. […]

How the How to Went

Well, that was fun! Turns out when you like what you’re doing, talking about it is easy. And what we loved the most about doing this workshop was seeing how others see. Below are a few photos by the students and some atmosphere shots of the class. And here are a few ideas that came out of the […]

ingredients of a good year

We love making things. This year, as we looked back on all the different work we did and also assessed the year with much gratitude, these pictures of ingredients made sense. They’re building blocks to a good meal, a good year, and to a new year. Elio even got involved by helping us stamp some of the envelopes to […]

A Kate and Guy How To: This Sunday

A few weeks ago Ian and Shelley, of The Farm Cooking School, asked us to teach a little class on food styling and photography. “OK, let’s do it!” we said. And suddenly it is happening this Sunday, Dec. 7! Are we ready? We are now. It’s going to be super fun and here’s why…  we will look […]
