Susanality is a free bi-weekly newsletter focusing on highly seasonal cooking that will inspire you. Aside from recipes that you won’t find anywhere else (except perhaps from my latest book, Open Kitchen), I’ll also be exploring my memories about food and life and how they made me the cook I am today.

You’ll find inspiring recipes both for every day and special occasions and gatherings, with plenty of recipes for delicious desserts sprinkled in. I cook with the seasons, so expect an occasional geeking out over a particular of-the-moment ingredient.


Well, for one, you will never miss a post. Every new edition of the newsletter will go straight to your inbox! And every post will live here on this platform in case you want to go back to it later. Kind of like a blog, but without all of those annoying ads popping up everywhere.

If you become a paid subscriber ($5/month or $50/year) you will get subscriber-only bonus posts and recipes, access to reader Q+A’s, discussion threads, holiday hotlines, videos, and more. This is still evolving, but I’m happy to be here and happy you’re here too. So think about swapping the price of just one latte a week for a paid subscription so I can continue to bring you fresh content on a weekly basis.

Highly seasonal recipes from Susan Spungen inspired by the market (sometimes just the supermarket) and musings about life in and out of the kitchen.
