  2. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I’ll admit that it’s been a little hard to feel celebratory these past few weeks. No matter what your political views are, our country is going through an uncertain time and as someone who is pretty young, I’ve been surprised at just how emotional I’ve felt watching all of these events unfold. Thanksgiving has always been Continue…

  3. 9 Cookbooks to Gift This Holiday Season

    Every year, I put together a cookbook gift guide because cookbooks make excellent gifts. They can say so much (like, “I hope you invite me over for breakfast one morning” or “Congratulations on moving in together!”). They’re equally appropriate to give to your best friend as your colleague. If you’re curious, you can browse my Continue…

  6. Pumpkin Chocolate Cake With Soft Merengue

    If you’re like me, you’re still processing last week’s events. I had booked a girls trip to Palm Springs nearly a year ago. Our departure date: November 10th. An insignificant day a year ago and one that I had been looking forward to with each passing month. Of course I had assumed, like everyone else Continue…

  7. City Guide: Charleston, South Carolina

    Charleston, South Carolina had been calling my name for years. The coastal city known as “The Holy City” is brimming with pastel-colored row houses, Southern charm, and an enviable food scene. It not surprising that it’s become a destination. Given that we now have 3 kids and we’ve never left anyone alone with all 3 Continue…

  8. Pickle-y Egg Salad Toast

    We’ve been reading this children’s book a lot lately. It’s written and illustrated by Carson Ellis, the wife of The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy, and given that food and music is kind of our jam here, I couldn’t help but get it. The title struck me: Home. To be honest, reading books to a toddler is Continue…

  9. Weeknight Dinner Tricks

    Weeknight dinners can be so stressful. Are you with me? I found them to be sorta stressful when we had one kid. When we added two more, I began to question whether I’d ever eat a home-cooked dinner (for real) again. Browsing our recipes, you might think that we make fancy-pants dinners every night of Continue…
