Savor: Lemon Dill Soup

Savor: Lemon Dill Soup While other parts of the country seem settled deep in a white, wintery wonderland – our Texas weather can’t seem to decide. This last week, the temperatures facilitated between twenty and seventy degrees in the course of just forty-eight hours. When we’re transitioning seasonally, I struggle to find the right kind…

IF:Table in Africa

Dacia Hamby and her husband, Josh, oversee a home for fifty-seven darling babies as well as managing a secondary school for nearly two hundred students in a ministry called Arise Africa International. After seeing Dacia’s colorful IF:Table photo pop up on Instagram, I knew I needed to interview her and ask her about why she…

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…
