Kitchen Meditations and Reflections from 2009

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Every weekend we bring you a meditation or reflection, a small piece that moves away from the strictly practical and into the mindful, the thoughtful, the inward. Dana has given us reflections on the power of pie, the merits of lingering, and the coming of winter. We love these small, quiet posts, and so here at the end of our 2009 review, we’ll leave you with a look back at some of our favorites.

Posts pictured above are in bold below, and in order from left to right and top to bottom.

Welcome to The Kitchn’s end-of-year roundup! We are rounding up some of our favorite (and your favorite) posts from the last year, including lots of recipes. We are also shaking out our reader mailbag, and giving you a few more great guest posts from our friends.
