How to Have a Perfect Fall Weekend

October 21st, 2013 Apple Picking || Turntable Kitchen

Last weekend, Matt, Neko and I fulfilled one of my ‘Fall Top 5,” referenced in last month’s newsletter. The last time I went apple picking was on a girls trip through the Northeast years ago (if you don’t count picking apples from my parents’ tree). A friend and I drove all over New England and […]

A Peek Inside the September Pairings Box: The Farmhouse Feast

October 11th, 2013 A Peek Inside the September Pairings Box: The Farmhouse Feast

Every month, I proclaim that the last month’s Pairings Box was my favorite recipe collection to work on. I guess the truth is that the Pairings Box recipes are always my favorite to work on. Knowing that I have to create three original recipes each month, in addition to the recipes we share on the […]

Dreaming of Campfires

September 6th, 2013 Dreaming of Campfires

I’m fairly certain that I have started at least 5 posts with, “on my drive to work, I was listening to NPR…” I was listening to an interview with Neko Case, who many people assume Neko is named after. I actually really like Neko Case, and I was acutely aware of her existence when I […]

A Peek Inside the July Pairings Box (Al Fresco Edition)

August 13th, 2013 Vietnamese Shrimp and Mango Noodle Bowls

Last month’s Pairings Box recipe collection was a dream for me to create. Summer cooking is my absolute favorite (see proof here) and I had no shortage of ideas for a collection that would transport you to a little beach house where cleaning is optional, sleeping in is a given, and lazy al fresco lunches […]

San Francisco’s Inner Sunset Neighborhood

August 12th, 2013 Hollow SF

I’ve been living in the Inner Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco for nearly 10 years (what?!) and the reaction I get from people when I tell them where I live has gone from, “Where is that?” to “I love that area! I want to live there!” It’s been strange and satisfying to hear my hood […]
