rosemary butternut squash

I love Texas for a lot of reasons. I love that we’re still wearing flip flops even though it’s December. I love that anywhere in Texas you can always see the bright blue sky. I love that most days there are these big cartoony clouds hanging high above, looking like they’re smiling down at you….

When Christmas Becomes A Big To-Do

It happened to me again. I got overwhelmed by the feeling I needed to create a big to-do list to keep pace with December. Because, of course, it’s Christmas – the month we celebrate the birth of Jesus and tucked inside this lovely month, there is a very real pressure to get it all done….

Pumpkin Curry

This whole meal is gluten-free, dairy-free, and contains no read meat—those were the parameters for a dinner party we hosted recently, and parameters that are increasingly common, it seems. I love finding creative ways to honor the people who sit around our table by honoring their dietary restrictions. If you’ve made the Mango Chicken Curry…

Happy Thanksgiving

One snowy night many years ago, we hosted a Thanksgiving dinner for our housechurch, even though the holiday had passed. I set the table with silver chargers and balloon wine glasses and silver candlesticks with long red tapers. When the turkey finally decided to be done, we sat in the twinkly, candlelit dining room and…

Susie’s Margherita Pizza

Recently I invited you to my Monday morning house because even though it’s an unorganized mess, I feel like it’s an expression of my biggest blessings. Well, today I’d like to invite you to try one of my messiest and most loved meals. This homemade pizza recipe is one my whole family loves. It’s the…

Fear & the False Idea of Entertaining

I wish you could see my Monday morning house. Laundry sitting in piles. Dishes in the sink. A plate of uncovered, stale banana muffins on the counter top. Weekends at the Davises are rowdy – filled with all kinds of activities that leave little time for tending to the house. So Mondays are messy. I…

On Prayer & the Table & my friend Margaret

I’ve learned by now that when Margaret is praying for something, that something is happening. I’ve known her well for six years. What I mean by known well is that the amount of time we’ve spent around the table together is somewhere in the thousands of hours. We’ve traveled together, cried together, visited one another…

Shauna’s Summer Salad

I’ve been making this twice a week this summer, partially because I can buy every bit of it at the farmer’s market, save the feta, salt & pepper. I’ve always grilled or boiled corn, but a recipe from Food52 that I tried a couple years ago called for raw corn. It blew my mind, and…

Avocado Pico de Gallo

Not sure about you but during these last few weeks of summer, our sit-down suppers have suffered. It’s been take-out and turkey sandwiches for a few weeks now. But gratefully, I was creeping on my Instagram when I saw my friend Rebecca’s stream. And that’s when I remembered a delightful summer supper we enjoyed at…
