My other sister Casey, last third of birch and basil is an incredibly talented and passionate cook and food writer. You’ve probably seen a few of our collaborative assignments for various publications on my blog like Diner Journal, Eat Boutique, and Anthology coming next issue. I admire her confidence in her kraft and ability to think recipes up on a dime. She’s off to culinary school in the summer, but in between now and then on top of working at 2 restaurants in Chicago, she’s starting up this little gem of a warm and fuzzy comfort fix. I want them all they sound so good! She’ll send you a little bundle of bread and spread for all your late night early morning afternoon picnic needs. Get em fresh!
hey team! here’s the latest of my endeavors, for you all to enjoy and send along. enter, bread and spread:
mail order (or home delivery if you’re in my area) breads and spread, customizable and promising to be ever-delish. let me know if you’re interested in being one of my first guinea pigs, just shoot me a message or email
For the past 2 years, my little sister Kirby, one third of Birch and Basil,has been a passionate beekeeper and advocate for the tiny pollinators. Her never ceasing enthusiasm to educate and act on behalf of the bees is incredibly inspiring. This past year, I’ve seen her passion grow from something she shared strictly with the bees to being an active advocate and educator as she spends her days teaching workshops, visiting elementary schools to give lectures, holding screenings for her award winning short film shot last year and others interested in helping the bees, to visiting surrounding keepers and their boxes.
She has come out of her shell in a way I can only think comes from the confidence she feels for the bees. I’m so proud of her and she is such an inspiration to me. And she’s just 18 y’all— never let anything get in the way of pursuing your passions. Live, breathe, explore, educate, and share that which you care for. You can change the world just being you. Kirb taught me that.
y’all—- Nikole Herriot is the best. Check out her site, herriotgrace.com and her post for today…you may just find a lil’ mention of my illos :)

It breaks my heart to hear again this morning that another local business my family is loyal to is going out of business. Take a break from your day today and go to your favorite local business and support them. Buy something even if its just a bag of dried apricots. You help make a difference in your community.
