Shemesh Farms: Season with Purpose

Hi friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged (more on that later), but I could not be any more excited to be back AND to tell you all about Shemesh Farms, an incredible new line of farm-to-jar culinary seasonings created by my brother Davis and a very special group of young people in Southern California.

Davis definitely got the green thumb in our family. Whereas my love affair with food has grown and flourished in the kitchen, his thrives in the garden. He sources his own seeds and plants them, carefully tending to the soil and the growing produce until ready to harvest.

During those early months, getting a meal prepared felt darn near impossible, much less cleaning the apartment and setting the table for guests. Now that Evie is a little older, I’m back to throwing dinner parties, but they’re more laid-back affairs, and most importantly, my expectations have shifted. I no...
