From the Kitchen of…

From the Kitchen of…

Last week, a big, heavy cardboard box showed up on my doorstep, shipped book rate, and marked with a label that said it had arrived damaged at the post office.  One look at the handwriting told me it was from my dear friend Anne. Anne and I were in film school together in the...

Mushroom Hunting in the Rain

Mushroom Hunting in the Rain

It had been raining on and off for about two days.  Baby and I hadn’t been able to get out of the house much, and it was starting to show. I found an excuse for us to go out via a trip to the library and the bank.  The library didn’t have what I...

We’re not using it in any derogatory sense here. For me, a foodie is someone who celebrates food...

Whole Foods Taste on a Wal-Mart Budget

Whole Foods Taste on a Wal-Mart Budget

Welcome to Laughing Lemon Pie, a resource for the family foodie. The idea for this website came about in 2011 when I left my full-time job to be a full-time mom (and a part-time freelance writer).  When I got pregnant, I gave up alcohol, soft cheeses, and sushi—not to mention a salary, free time,...

Ritual Chocolate

Ritual Chocolate

It thrills me that there are people out there who are experts in chocolate. I suppose you could be an expert in anything.  You could be an expert in Lima beans.  Or in toast.  Or plain white rice. But chocolate is just so much sexier. And since I got a tour of Ritual Chocolate‘s...

Foraging Adventures

Have you ever met someone and just clicked? That’s what happened when I met Butterpowered Bike of the blog Hunger and Thirst for Life at a foodie event recently.  She was talking about making wild garlic pickles, I was offering bundles of herbs from my garden.  It was foodie love at first bite… er,...
