The end of the year is always super busy. It’s the last week of school for Robin and Davy and it feels like there’s a million things I’m supposed to do. “Update my blog” is on the list somewhere, so I’m just going to throw a few things up.

- pan-roasted asparagus with shaved parmesan
- cornmeal-buttermilk sheet cake with blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries
