I find that I repeatedly shop for fresh/frozen items in the same way I shop for dry goods. I like having a basic set of ingredients on hand so that I can reliably turn to my go-to dips, dishes, and meals during the week. Read more for my fresh/frozen pantry guide.
It doesn’t take much to add color, flavor and dimension to everyday meals using fresh herbs. Fresh herbs are the tender leaves of aromatic plants and they can transform any dish from simple to spectacular. Read more for the complete guide!
Since I moved into a high-rise apartment and sold my car, I’ve been buying groceries online. I’ve developed a list we can all use. This edition, focused on dry goods, helps me keep things stocked for many of my go-to meals. A fresh/frozen edition of this list is coming soon. Get cooking!
I am mildly obsessed with lentils. Low in calories, high in fiber and protein, they are a go-to of mine for soup, salads, and sides. This Lentil Salad requires no recipe.

In 2018, I closed Flagstone Pantry to relocate to Washington, D.C. – again. I’ve had a little time to reflect on my experience owning and operating Flagstone Pantry, which I’ve concluded was equal parts rewarding, challenging, fun and terrifying. Being featured on Cooking Channel’s Cheap Eats: Santa Barbara for my Cowboy Cooking was simply the […]
In January 2018, the crew from Cooking Channel joined us for 2 days of filming and fun featuring our Cowboy Cookie. A hearty snack containing peanut butter, coconut, chocolate chips and oats – it’s about time the Cowboy Cookie got some prime time love (if we may say so ourselves)! They took over our kitchen […]
