gabriellegeiselman So these lemon tarts are officially a hit here in the Irish Channel...so much so that I found myself today doubling the batch for all those who didn't get a bite of the first ones. Thank you SO much to @joythebaker for the original recipe (lemon bars from her stellar cookbook Homemade decadence)...this really did turn out to be wildly kid friendly, super portable and insanely good with a latte! Fabulous for Spring and nice and tart...this might be my favorite baked good EVER! 23h

gabriellegeiselman I miss my girl @joythebaker like mad. She's my brownie wizard, my Sazerac drinking, oyster consuming, horseradish loving...(well maybe not LOVING) partner in crime. So I decided I'd make lemon squares out of her cookbook but then I thought about four year olds and sticky fingers and how much my kid likes anything resembling a cupcake so....I made the lemons bars in parchment cupcake inserts and voila! Mini lemon tarts. I still miss Wilson something fierce but I think if she were here she would eat the H*ll out of em' all the while being smothered in kisses by a very happy four year old...the same one who took the bite out of my "photo shoot" 2d

gabriellegeiselman Ricotta, sweet onions, basil, Parmesan, egg, Italian parsley....all getting ready to go into the lasagne. Produce is so beautiful and so abundant it's so lovely to be able to make such hearty things right now with such local and fresh ingredients. 2d

gabriellegeiselman Remember that promise to myself to roast everything? Well these lovelies ( sourced at @hollygrovemarketandfarm and & @wholefoods_louisiana) are getting tossed with olive oil, red pepper flake, whole cloves of garlic and fresh cracked pepper. Into the oven they go to be roasted for the super healthy and amazingly fresh base to my marinara what will be the star in my lasagne tomorrow. It's such an easy thing to have on hand and takes a lasagne to the next level. It's also fabulous with fresh squeezed lemon and rough chop Italian parsley on spaghetti. The perfect answer to "what am I going to do with ALL these tomatoes? Quality problems people! #tomato #marinara #healthy 3d

gabriellegeiselman If it's not nailed down I'm roasting it. Right now it's all the amazing baby carrots from @hollygrovemarketandfarm and @good_eggs. Fast, beautiful and so darn delicious! I like substituting walnut oil for olive and adding a little lemon juice and zest...a great hack for kids is adding a touch of honey to roasted veggies...even MC feisty pants over here eats them by the boatload and he's one picky eater. 5d

gabriellegeiselman Seven years ago today, St Patrick's Day, my house was on the blighted homes list and set on fire by the owner in an attempt to burn it to the ground and collect the insurance. Today the house, despite many troubled and sad times stands proud. I've busted my ass trying to bring it back to its original 1840's glory...and decided after much struggle I'm keeping it. It may not be perfect but it's ours and it seems apropos that today my family, of Irish Heritage lives here and loves it. I'm proud to live here in the Irish Channel and so very grateful to live in this beautiful home. 2w
