The Sunday Thymes + Weekend Things

Raspberry Picking at Butler's Orchard | @blogoverthyme

This weekend was filled with pleasant surprises! On Friday night, I headed over to my parents’ house for dinner and in the process of trying to sort through some stuff in my old room, I discovered a CD case full of gems! Oh my gosh, this is just as amazing as it was 15+ (!!!) years ago. It is even crazier to discover that you don’t remember the music videos (woh) because YouTube didn’t exist back then.

That particular CD is just the tip of the iceberg. I might have to share more…

Then, at the last minute, we decided to head out to Butler’s Orchard (a 20 mile drive outside of DC) on Saturday morning for fresh raspberry picking! I went to a similar farm in the area last year to pick blackberries, and this trip was just as successful. Between the three of us, we picked about 15 lbs of raspberries. I love that raspberries have two seasons.

Honestly, it was an absurd amount of berries, but it was nearly impossible to stop when they were so perfect-looking and staring at me in the face! I’m planning on freezing as many as I can’t consume, but will hopefully be sharing a recipe with them in the next week or so as well!

Oh, and it was my first time taking out the new camera so I was extremely shutter-happy and took far too many pictures, per usual. Thanks for indulging me, as always!

Pomegranate Moscow Mule

Friday calls for a cocktail! All that’s missing now is some cute copper mugs (excuse me while I go add some to my wedding registry). Remember when I mentioned that I had recently tried my first Moscow mule, and how I’ve never had an official cocktail? Well, after making these pomegranate Moscow...

Broken Farro Porridge with Coconut Milk, Almonds, & Roasted Plums

If I were going to list my all-time favorite breakfasts ever, this broken farro porridge would definitely be near the top of the list. Top five, for sure. And that is saying a lot, because I don’t normally consider myself an oatmeal or porridge person. I’m not even sure if oatmeal...

Beet, Peach, Burrata Salad with Candied Pistachios + Basil Oil

Can I ask a big favor of you all? Go out and buy peaches. Like now, and then go home and make this salad. This is the one summer recipe that you still have to make–and I don’t know how much longer good peaches will be available (maybe another week or two?),...

The Sunday Thymes

The Sunday Thymes

{Scenes from this week!} Spiked pistachio cupcake milkshakes?!? Whaaaaat? I’m making this curried roasted eggplant with cardamom and coconut milk this weekend. It’s happening, it must! Kind of obsessed with all of these sprinkle tests for funfetti cake. I’m such a nerd. This grilled brie, porcini, and caramelized onion...

Healthy Pumpkin Carrot Pecan Muffins | bloggingoverthyme.com

Hi! Don’t hate me–but I caught the pumpkin bug ahead of schedule. My plan was to resist posting any pumpkin recipes for at least a few more weeks (you know, until the weather dipped below 80 degrees) but then you left all of those amazing comments the other day...

Salt + Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas

So, I’m just going to cut to the chase with this post. These salt and vinegar chickpeas were totally inspired by Jessica’s BBQ roasted chickpeas in her new cookbook. Have you roasted chickpeas before? I totally hadn’t up until a week or so ago. I’m officially a changed woman. In...

Grilled Cheese with Broccolini, Caramelized Red Onions, & Red Pepper Flakes

I can’t think of a better way to start the week than with gooey grilled cheese sandwiches, can you? These ones are loaded with gooey fontina, sharp cheddar, and lots of veggies (you know, for balance). I also added in a hefty sprinkling of red pepper flakes, because they...
