  1. Frosted Heart Cookies

    Few things are more therapeutic than mixing colors in a bowl and frosting cookies. These cookies involved only my second time using food coloring and I have to say, I’m kind of hooked on synthetic colors. I’m being only mildly sarcastic here. The truth is, I’ve always believed that food can be both pretty and Continue…

    What we’re looking at here folks is sugar and butter, layered with sugar. Because that is what this holiday is all about!

  2. Broccoli Mac and Cheese

    We’ve partnered with Got Milk? to bring you today’s recipe. Thanks for supporting our sponsors! It all started with my early attempts to breastfeed my first child. Just weeks in, she wasn’t having it and neither was I. There were tears. A lot of tears. But soon we both moved on and I began to Continue…

  3. Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

    My favorite and most memorable Valentine’s Day was definitely casual: a really good meal cooked by my man, candles and listening to records while eating dessert and drinking wine or cocktails. Truth be told, this is how I like to spend almost every Valentine’s Day. I prefer to be barefoot at home than eating a fixed price Continue…

  4. Matcha Crêpes with Whipped Cream, Berries, and Cacao Nibs

    I’ve talked a lot about crêpes in the past — I grew up eating my grandma’s thick, buttery ones (we called them blini) and later my mom’s. It wasn’t until after college that I realized I could make my own crepes whenever I wanted. It was one of those funny realizations. I still remember my Continue…

  5. On Fear and Sesame Salt Pretzel Twists

    I’ve been thinking about fear. Where it comes from and how to let it go. You see, I spend and have spent a lot of time being afraid. I was afraid to have a child, lest it should alter the course of my life indefinitely (it did). I’ve been afraid to leave jobs that I’ve Continue…

  6. Sparkling Cranberry Shrub

    Most of 2015 has been a blur and something tells me that 2016 might be, too. I recall making crab cakes for breakfast in our pajamas and driving up to Stinson Beach with Matt and Neko on New Year’s Day before eating a late lunch at Stellina in Pt.Reyes. I had this realization that day Continue…

  7. The Very Best Dark Chocolate Pudding

    My first Christmas in America was a confusing one at best. Coming from Russia (by way of Israel) where we had a New Year’s tree and a fellow named ‘Ded Moroz’ to celebrate with, I wasn’t sure who this Santa character was and why his lady sidekick was a grandma wearing a sweater and not Continue…

  8. Homemade (Indoor) S’Mores, Memories of Summer

    I’ll always remember the summer (and fall) of 2015 as the one that we spent living at Ocean Beach. Historically, the San Francisco summer has been the most dreaded of seasons. Misty, cold, dreary, and foggy, it’s the time of year when San Franciscans flee to warmer pastures. We retreat to the North, East, and Continue…

  9. City Guide: Juneau, Alaska

Our friends Alex and Sonja of the gorgeous blog A Couple Cooks are stopping by to share their city guide to Juneau, Alaska. From breathtaking nature to locally-roasted brews, coffee, and fish, Juneau has more to offer than we even imagined.  Thank you, Alex and Sonja, for sharing this Continue…

  10. Giveaway: Aiya’s Ceremonial Matcha Gift Set

    When we visited Japan a few years ago, we couldn’t get enough of matcha — we ate matcha ice cream and candies and enjoyed ceremonial matcha tea during our stay at a ryokan in Kyoto. And most recently, we featured matcha as a Premium Ingredient in our Pairings Box. Today we’re giving away a Ceremonial Continue…

  11. TK Market Update: Cookie and Vinyl Pairing!

    When Matt and I got married, I adopted his record collection and he adopted my love of all things baked, doughy, and chocolatey. To this day, I think we can both agree that few things are better in life that a warm chocolate chip cookie, straight from the oven, accompanied by some good tunes. Which Continue…
