PARDON OUR MESS! There may be a few wonky elements of this post as we transition to our NEW & IMPROVED Nourish + Nestle. We are ACTIVELY under renovation, and I’m so excited to roll out our new look over the next few weeks.
Good Morning from Savannah, Georgia.
We have had the most lovely time visiting family and friends (who might as well be family) in Florida. We ate great food, enjoyed the lovely weather and sights, caught up with each other, and laughed heartily.
We stopped in Savannah on our way home to enjoy this city and plan to spend the day just wandering about, our favorite thing to do.

new on the blog
Despite my best intentions, I did not get as much done as I had hoped before we left town on Wednesday.
But I did manage to publish an illustrated, step-by-step post on the Diagonal Basket Weave knit stitch. This post also includes a video showing how to knit both the knit and purl sides of the stitch.

While Florida’s orange trees are still recovering from hurricanes, past freezes, and disease, driving past endless groves as we traversed the state got me thinking about citrus!
Orange Marmalade! It is a lovely quirk of nature that the sunniest fruit is at its sweetest and juiciest in winter.
This sweet and savory Meyer Lemon and Fig Conserve, enhanced with wine, honey, and walnuts, is a lovely savory and sweet appetizer pairing, ideal for your meat & cheese tray or as a topping to goat cheese or brie.
These Lemon Rosemary Scones are the perfect breakfast/tea treat…or dessert, for that matter. The scones are just barely sweet, perfectly tangy with lemon, and then there’s that hint of piney freshness offered by the rosemary.
I think my stash of these Ginger Lemon Cubes is just about depleted. I’ll make a batch this week.
Not only is it citrus’ time to shine, it is also peak pansy season! Top these easy-to-make Lemon Icebox Cookies with pansies picked right from your garden!
And nab this free Watercolor Lemon Measuring Equivalents chart. This chart makes converting and multiplying recipe ingredients super easy.

This chunky, broken-rib stitch blanket knits up quickly, is relatively economical to make, and…most importantly…is wonderfully cozy.

And speaking of cutting boards, here are some ideas on how to display cutting boards.
And, then…an additional fifty-plus household tasks that will take you 15 minutes or less.
a few fun finds
I always get a pack (or two) of these erasable pens in my stocking each Christmas. I am a paper planner gal, and I like having all the color options that are also erasable when necessary!
This crochet purse kit has EVERYTHING you need (including the video) to make a fashionable purse. And it is really very nicely priced.
The googly-eye version of these frivolous plant magnets will find its way into a care package for my kiddos in the near future.
Well, friends. We are going to figure out our plans for strolling around Savannah today. We’ll find a nice spot for a late breakfast and then do our exploring. We head home tomorrow, and I’ll be glad to be reunited with my four-legged loves and get back to my routine.
Hope you have a fantastic day!
