Flávia Schiochet is one of my most favorite writers. She widens my understanding of her country and her deep dives into cultural, political, and social issues surrounding food keep me thinking long after I've read a post.
A prompt a day to nudge awake your mind and creativity. It always helps, especially if you're stuck in work or a rut.
I reached out to Kate a few years back to talk about pies and we've been talking pie ever since. her newsletter is like sitting in her kitchen, having a slice of one of her perfect pies while dissecting the joys and woes of the world--always fun, always interesting, always with a lot of heart.
Amee Vanderpool got me through the Trump years in some semblance of sanity. I wouldn't know what the hell is happening with the Supreme Court without her. She informs me about the week's leading events--and some that I should have known about but missed. If this isn't isn't enough for you, then her wit and humor should because they're a rare, very much needed, attributes these days.
