Howdy Gang! (First, hey check it out! With the kind help of some friends who are more talented at these things than I am (hello Kate, hello Rachel!), I’ve finally launched a site redesign. It’s been in the works for over a year, but what a year it’s been. My friend Andrew did the lettering. […]


  • J.S. @ Sun Diego Eats - Oooh the hemp seeds and the coconut! Chocolate bark is normally not something I get excited about but this I would actually pick over cookies/buche de noel/other Xmas baked goods!ReplyCancel

  • Vadim - Such a delicious recipe! I’ll definitely cook it one of these days, but don’t know for sure if I would be able to store it in the fridge for a week :D.ReplyCancel

  • cynthia - I want to live in these photos. And live off this bark. So beautiful, Kimberley!!ReplyCancel

  • jaime - i’m sorta new to your blog (hi!) but heeey, i love the new design! simple and bold and bright. i’m a fan!

    and i’m with cynthia; i could definitely live in these photos. i love chocolate but i’ve never felt particularly drawn to chocolate bark (in so many cases it feels like a dumbing down of luscious dark chocolate with lame and unchocolatey things like dried fruit and crappy hard candy pieces), but i love what you’ve got going on here; the spice, the textures, the savory nuttiness. brilliant.

    happiest of holidays to you, kimberley!ReplyCancel

After many months of feeling uninspired in the kitchen, the desire to spend hours tending to recipes and experiments has come back strong. I am making kimchi, and nourishing broths, and soups, and trying my hand at a gluten-free sourdough starter again. I am roasting vegetables, and letting little failures be okay, and indulging in […]
