  1. Win $100 to Spend on Prints and More at Artifact Uprising

    We take a lot of photos around here, but it’s rare for us to actually get them printed anymore. As someone who used to meticulously curate scrapbooks and photo albums, it makes me a little sad that most of my memories nowadays are digital. I’ve been making an effort to get more of my favorite Continue…

  2. Muscovado Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

    “I want to show you something,” she often says with pride these days. Sometimes, it is a new toy. Sometimes, a “fancy trick” on the playground (currently it is hanging off the rail just above the slide with her long legs tucked under her). But either way, there is something magical about a small person Continue…

  3. Flakiest Buttermilk Biscuits with Apricot Jam: On Building a Life

    Back in 2008 when Matt and I first got engaged, we had to tackle a few of the big questions that everyone does when they decide they’re going to not just share a life together, but take on the legal commitment of sharing a life together. Stuff like how we were going to handle our Continue…

  4. Herb Spotlight: 8 Ways to Use Cilantro

    Cilantro has long been one of my favorite herbs. I recognize it’s a somewhat controversial one but I happen to fall into this camp of people. Growing up, my family would often serve stalks of cilantro alongside fresh vegetables on a huge platter. We didn’t use dips, we just ate the fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and Continue…

  5. Raw Thai Citrus Crunch Salad

    For many years, I consistently brought the same exact salad to work in a square tupperware tucked into a plastic bag that is no longer allowed in the city of San Francisco. It wasn’t revolutionary by any stretch: spinach, berries, walnuts, goat cheese, and a very basic balsamic dressing. Because it was so light, I’d Continue…

  6. City Guide: Santa Fe, New Mexico

    Santa Fe, New Mexico has long been a place that I’ve daydreamed about. Perhaps because I’ve always admired the life and work of Georgia O’Keefe or because I’ve lately come to really love mountains and deserts. I told myself we’d make it there someday and once we found out about the twins, the clock feels like it’s been Continue…

  7. Making the Kitchen Fun and Safe for the Family (+ a Special Discount)

    Cooking has always been my escape — an activity that could transport me from my tiny little kitchen to places I’ve been and hoped to visit. There is something meditative about chopping and slicing, kneading and stirring. When Matt and I started living together, it became something we did together; we’d take on elaborate cooking Continue…

  8. Honeydew and Lemon Verbena Popsicles

    We’re packing in trips like there’s no tomorrow before these babies arrive. We still have some time (I’m nearly halfway there!), but with my growing belly, I’m already finding my energy decreasing. I used to go to LA pretty often, especially when I lived in San Diego. Back in those days, I was more interested Continue…
