  1. Rhubarb and Rye Upside Down Cake

    My first spring in Seattle and I’m already learning what it means to get ‘hit’ by the passing season. Coming from California, where spring isn’t quite so distinctive, I wasn’t prepared for the amount of change I would experience all around me, so suddenly. It’s like one morning I woke up to buds on every Continue…

When I first started reading it, I thought I’d breeze through Continue…

  6. Chicken Enchiladas Verdes: Nothing is Ever “Done”

    One thing I’ve quickly realized as a home owner is that nothing is ever ‘done.’ Hard as I struggle to have the picture be ‘complete’ there is always room to change (or shitty pipes to fix before thinking about pretty tile work).
