Thanksgiving is a difficult holiday for me. I love the gatherings of friends and loved ones, but I am not always full of thanks, especially these past few years. My husband and I have had a really rough time trying to figure out our careers, our faith, where to live, family life, and a lot more stuff--which can be pretty common to all of us! The hardest part is that I am not with my family for the holiday. Ever [...]
It’s almost Thanksgiving and with a difficult past few weeks, I’ve needed to pull my family and friends close. We’ve needed more support, more connections, and more shared meals. I feel so grateful for the wonderful people in my life and the network that keeps us going. Being the food-based holiday that it is, Thanksgiving provides a unique opportunity for coming together with folks you might see every day, and folks you only see a few times a year. I [...]
Especially during the fall months when everything is pumpkin flavored, we begin to crave pumpkin treats and baked goods. Do you get that craving too?

Here at Mary Lee Kitchen, we are working on a number of exciting projects -- recipes, educational posts, collaborations, and prepping for holiday markets plus other events. While those projects are cooking, here is one of our favorite soups from the archives to warm your kitchens and stomachs. Happy Monday everyone! Foraging makes me think of going into the woods to gather ingredients, shooting a deer with a bow and arrow, and then cooking everything over an open fire. That is [...]
As a kid growing up in New England, October always meant colorful leaves, apple picking, pumpkins, and big sweatshirts. It was part of every year’s pre-Halloween tradition to go to an orchard and pick as many apples as I could one weekend, followed by a pumpkin selection outing the next weekend. The days got shorter and cooler, and there were always more leaves to be raked into piles. For the past nine years, I’ve lived in Los Angeles and, while [...]
I didn’t really know Fall as a season until I moved to Alabama for college. The enormous trees started to change from deep hunter greens to bright oranges, yellows and reds around the middle of September, and stayed that way until Thanksgiving. I hadn’t experienced anything like this while growing up in the dry desert of West Texas. The Pumpkin Spice Latte also made a grand appearance into my life the fall of my freshman year of college. I resisted [...]
We are reposting this in honor of the birthday of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte Thanksgiving is right around the corner for us folks living in the United States. It marks a time to remember what we are thankful for, having an attitude of gratitude, and preparing for the largest feast most of us will partake in during the year. There are so many things that I am grateful for, but one of the main things that I am grateful for [...]
Cooking is hard in my house lately. On doctor’s orders, we are doing two months of dietary restrictions, and it has thrown all of our eating habits into an uproar. Confession, I didn’t think it would be this hard. I mean, my husband was already intolerant of gluten, meaning that we have gluten free meals all of the time, essentially. Not to mention that I am part of a blog and business that deals with food allergies and making allergy-friendly [...]
