Charm City Edibles Blog
A blog about life, love, death, and eating well. Featuring musings on everything from my orange-stealing grandmother to the ways in which we love the people around us, each post ends with a recipe that is made to be gluten-free but easily modified for gluten-lovers by swapping out the flour.

I am going to share a top secret recipe today that is fail-proof, delicious, cheap, and vegan (if you skip some of the garnishes). It’s because I LOVE YOU, and I want you to have good… Read More

So The Child is coming home for the holidays, and she has requested a few things for food. Salad (shocking), spice cake (not as shocking), and That Beef Stew Thing. “That Beef Stew Thi… Read More

All I want to do is get off of WordPress and onto some other easy-to-use site. And yet here I am, languishing on a platform I hate for the sake of occasionally posting here. It’s a pla… Read More

Twenty-two years ago today I met my husband, and eight years ago on Tuesday, February 16, he died in a single-car accident about 1/4 mile from our home. We had a rom-com-worthy meet cute. I… Read More

Every year, and KWeeks makes a little fun of me for this, I record all of the books I read. I do this for several reasons, not the least of which being that I have the short-term memory of a… Read More

The irony is not lost on me that this is the year that I decided to emulate Austin Kleon’s annual “100 Things to Love about _____.” First, comes COVID, a righteous clusterf… Read More

A week ago today, the nation suffered through the actual day of election after weeks of mail-in ballots and early voting and pontificating and bullshit leading up to it.. Four days later, pr… Read More

Pancakes and muffins are for Saturdays, but Sunday means waffles. Crispy on the outside, soft and steamy on the inside. I eat the first one off the iron with my hands before the lid is even… Read More

The first year we moved into the house on 35th street, I was completely unprepared for Halloween. Our neighborhood gets between 500 and 700 trick-or-treaters annually, children who come in f… Read More

I don’t know about where you live, but here in Maryland we have just gotten our first glimpse of fall. This past week overnight temps hovered in the mid-60s, and daytime highs were jus… Read More

I have been in the past, and still am, if I am being honest (which I always try to be), a cynical person to varying degrees. I have referred to myself as an optimistic pessimist – thin… Read More

So this is it for me. I am officially going on a break with this blog, at least until the fall, I think, or until I redesign the blog and move it to another host, or something becomes so com… Read More

I seem to have temporarily lost my voice. Not my actual one – the one that I use in my work. A combination of fear, doubt, grief, the weight of the world. I feel silenced and flummoxed… Read More

So here we are, already in June, with each month either accelerated beyond comprehension or dragging along. I can’t decide which one May was. Fast, maybe? At any rate, it is increasing… Read More

When will the state-sanctioned killing of black people in this country stop? What is it in the DNA of white people born in the U.S. that allows them to cast their eye away from the senseless… Read More

We’re gonna go ahead and start this party with a little bit of shirtless Prince at his live birthday show in Detroit in 1986. If I am honest, as I always try to be, I will say that I w… Read More

Friends, this poem is incredible and timely. It almost made me cry, the last stanza, especially as we are in such an extraordinary time of avoiding human contact. I did not know Aracelis Gir… Read More

Well, so here we are in May. How are you? Depending on where you live, you have been practicing social distancing for almost two months now. It’s unnerving to think of how we will inte… Read More

This house is where I spent the first few years of my childhood in western Maryland – one room, three floors (if you count the dirt basement), and no hot water. It’s strange to m… Read More

Today’s poem is by me and was published by Plainsongs, a journal of Hastings College Press, last summer, 2019. How optimistic things felt then, how wide open and expansive. This was ma… Read More
