We’re back! And to kick off the new year and the release of Tsh’s book, Notes From a Blue Bike, she’ll be chatting with a few special guests for the next few episodes. For this episode, she’s with Shauna Niequist, author of Bread & Wine!

  1. I love the idea of informal hospitality and would be keen to have people over more, but wondered if you have any tips for keeping visits to a good length? As an introverted person (with a small child who likes attention), I find my reserves dipping as visits progress and often when the person you’ve invited is perhaps a bit lonely themselves, things can tend to go on. I’ve stopped the podcast halfway through to tap this, so apologies if you go on to discuss this! x

  2. My mom developed an all-pantry ingredient chicken dish that literally takes 10 minutes to prepare because you make this killer sauce (5 min) then submerge a cut-up rotisserie chicken in it and let it simmer for 15 minutes while you cook rice or pasta (my fav). Serve with bread to sop up the drinkable sauce, salad if you want it, Blue Bell ice cream for dessert. My fav recipes (so far) from Bread & Wine: Magical Bean Soup — I want to drizzle the balsamic vinaigrette on everything. Totally love her Breakfast Quinoa, super delicious & filling. Annette’s Enchiladas & Mexican Grilled Corn, SO good. I’m gathering courage to bake bread in my dutch oven soon!

  3. My favorite is the Blueberry Crisp! Looking forward to blueberry season so I can make more.

      That was my favorite recipe too. I think it makes a healthy breakfast, and it’s so fast using frozen fruit. Her curry recipe is also very good. I’m so glad I read Shauna’s book because it’s so much more than recipes. Her essays about body image and the one about the nesting dolls really stuck with me long after I finished reading.

  4. That theory on writing with a messy house? SPOT. ON. so enjoyed listening to you ladies chat! Feel like I’m sitting around the table with you, drinking my tea and relaxing. :)

  5. Go to food is soup and homemade bread. I have celiac, so I go without the bread, or make my own toast, but everyone is happy with a warm loaf, some dipping stuff, and soup during our 6 month winters! :)

    This was so fun to listen to! My whole family loves the Mexican chicken chili with avocado, cheese and chips! So delicious!

    I made the Gaia cookies today using the Namaste gluten free flour mix from Costco (such a good flour mix by the way) and the cookies turned out great! So good!

      Such a problem!!

    • Yay! When I played with making them GF I used coconut, rice & tapioca flours & some guar gum. Yummy! I may be on your doorstep soon. 😉

  8. Loved this episode! Do you have the link to Shauna’s friend’s version of the gluten free Gaia cookie?

  9. What a fun podcast! I have several B&W recipes bookmarked to try, but so far I haven’t moved past the blueberry crisp. I have made it about a hundred times…so yummy for dessert OR breakfast with Greek yogurt, just like Shauna recommends.

    Great podcast! Honored to have my question chosen for Shauna– thanks, Tsh! Loved the good unprepared/bad unprepared comparison.

    Go to meals for having people over: a big pot of chili with diy-toppings in the winter and build-your-own sub sandwiches in the summer :)
