  1. Sunshine Soup from the Yummy Supper Cookbook

    This thing happens to me in the summer. I don’t really cook. I mean, I cook but I don’t really make recipes. The produce is so fresh and so good, that I usually just throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl, toss it with some salt and olive oil, and call it a meal. Continue…

    I get hung up with the idea that some things are never to be reclaimed again: old houses, old friends, my good handwriting, frozen on the pages of college notebooks that collect dust in my parents’ garage.
  2. How to Host a (Homemade) Bagel Brunch

    Elijah’s Deli welcomed me with open Jewish grandma arms the first time my parents dropped me off in San Diego to start college as a freshman. And visit after visit, we always seemed to end up there for lunch or brunch. Nestled in an inconspicuous mall in La Jolla, it was the sort of place Continue…

  6. Magical Two Egg Maple-Cherry Pavlova + Whole Foods Giveaway

    My friend Daniel introduced me to David Sedaris back when we were in high school. He leant me the hilarious book, Holidays on Ice, and the first time he recounted a few of the stories from the book, I had, for a moment, thought he was actually talking about himself. Whenever I read anything that David Sedaris writes, Continue…

  7. Grilled Halloumi with Strawberries and Herbs

Most of my visits were to border cities that offered cheap booze, affordable seafood, mediocre beaches, and an overabundance of tacky (and wacky) souvenirs. Back in my college days, I frequently hopped the border to go dancing in Tijuana and, Continue…

  9. Berry Cobbler with Oat Dumplings

    Currently, my refrigerator is so bursting with berries and stone fruits that every day starts with a mission to consume. The fruit to yogurt ratio in my morning bowl quadruples and salads become lighter and more colorful. I buy stone fruit by the bagful; it’s so heavy, I typically have to stash it underneath Neko’s Continue…
