  1. Cookbook Giveaway: Canal House Cooking Volume 6

    We’re big fans of the Canal House books. We first learned about them from Molly over at Orangette, and bought a few individual books, until we realized that we wanted them all. So we got a subscription. A Canal House Cooking subscription is a gift that keeps on giving. For $49.95, you get three books Continue…

  2. We Do Meat, Too: Brothy Beef Short Ribs

    When my parents and I moved to America, I quickly started calling everyone I ever spoke with in class my ‘friends.’ My parents were perplexed. “These aren’t your friends,” they’d say.

  3. Grasping at the Bits: Strawberry Conserve

    Before you say anything, let me just justify the cherries in the photo of my strawberry conserve. I simply can’t help myself around this time of year. I try to get my hands on every summer fruit I can. I will eat cherries until my stomach hurts. I am not the first to post this Continue…

    It seems rather ironic that I am sharing a recipe with you today for chicken and dumplings. Why? Well, after a frigid, season-long winter this summer, the Bay Area–and San Francisco, specifically–is finally experiencing some actual HEAT. That said, while I have spent my summer eating hearty winter meals, I’m in a place where all Continue…

  7. Shaved Asparagus Salad with Anchovy Vinaigrette

    There are those days when you just feel lucky. The world might not be perfect and your life might not be perfect, but when you put things into perspective, you can’t help but think that life is grand. All too often, I find myself getting overwhelmed by the little things. Small frustrations and anxieties that Continue…

  8. Expect the Unexpected: Grilled Shrimp + Anchovy Butter

    The other day, I sent out a tweet that was meant to be a direct message to someone, only it was projected to the entire world. I panicked (naturally) because the tweet was not entirely innocent and raced to sign on to Twitter’s homepage to delete said racy message. After missing my heartbeat for a Continue…
