Hi. I’m Isabel, I cook and scribble. I make a lot of food and do a lot of writing, and Bread & Courage is what I have to show for it. It started as a simple food blog called TASTE but evolved into something more—a place where I express my love of food, community and the environment. Thanks for spending some time here—and be in touch!

There are few things I can do with a […]

Apr 22, 2008

Last night I made cupcakes, but called them muffins. I got away with it for a few reasons. 1. They are brown, but not chocolate. We’ve all heard that white stuff is the enemy–white flour, white sugar, white lies… As long as I throw a cupful of molasses into the (very white) mix, suddenly things […]
