  1. The Merry Mary: Let’s Fête

    For as long as I can remember, my dad has always ordered the same drink from the airplane beverage cart: tomato juice, plain and simple. My dad, who hates flying and has always insisted we drive to all sorts of faraway destinations, has always enjoyed the thick, salty brew. But he didn’t just drink tomato Continue…

    I won’t go so far as saying that I’ve become my father but I welcome the occasional sneaky reminders that I am, indeed, my father’s daughter.
  2. Crispy Salt and Vinegar Potatoes: These Are The Days

    Every year, I look forward to Bon Appetit’s travel issue because it reminds me of the main reason I travel: to eat, of course. I plan my days around breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee breaks, and cocktails. The more meals, the better. Several years ago, I first read about Hartwood restaurant in Tulum, Mexico, and convinced Continue…

  3. Shakshuka: I Owe You

    “I owe you a phone call” is what my friends and I say to each other whenever we find ourselves exchanging a flurry of emails and text messages with snippets of life updates. Some, more profound, others, less so (“You were right! Overalls ARE back in style!”). It’s unfortunate, but in my mind, I owe Continue…

  4. Banana and Macadamia Nut Muffins: Everything Will Be Ok

    I’ve noticed something interesting recently, about the way my generation thinks about the present and the future. Our everyday lives seem to defined by a ‘movement’ of sorts, either by observers of our generation, or ourselves. We’re hipsters! We’re feminists! We’re liberals! We’re entrepreneurs! We’re socially conscious! We’re locavores! We’re vagabonds! We’re 2.0! We’re living Continue…

  5. 9 Sweet Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

    It’s hard to believe but this year, I’ll be celebrating my second Mother’s Day as a mother. Last year, Neko was barely four months old. I have learned a few things but mostly, I’m still just stumbling along. Thankfully, though, I’ve got a few things figured out. Around the holidays, Uncommon Goods asked if I’d Continue…

  6. Sky High Banana and Homemade Nutella Sandwich: The Lies We Tell

    We all lie to ourselves on a daily basis. Whether it’s a little or a lot, about the small stuff or the big stuff, these lies get us through our day-to-day. And if you don’t believe it, you’re lying to yourself. You might not think of it as lying, your moral soul, you. You tell Continue…

  7. How to Store Cheese and Favorite Cheesy Recipes!

    Around the holidays, while browsing for gift ideas, I came across cheese paper bags. I had never heard of cheese paper bags before because, truth be told, I’d been used to storing my cheese in plastic wrap, which is exactly how you’re not supposed to store cheese. Turns out, the best way to store cheese Continue…

  8. Rosemary and Toasted Caraway Shortbread

    Somehow, I’ve managed to avoid all conversations related to snowmaggedons, polar vortexes, and solar vortexes. And yet, I could feel it coming. The itch to to flee. I get that way a lot. In a funk. When nothing feels like it’s quite in its right place. I immediately start throwing things away, including things that Continue…

  9. Kimchi Style Cabbage and Fried Eggs (Or, Faux-Chi)

    March is lot like a long, flat stretch of road somewhere. It’s far enough away from where you’ve left (winter) and not quite to where you’re headed (spring). In terms of writing, March feels like the first sentence, followed by a blinking cursor. It’s a tough one, mentally, to overcome. Most of the country is Continue…

  10. A Peek Inside the January Pairings Box: Brunch Gathering

    If I could, I’d eat breakfast three times a day. And if you’ve gotten to know my taste, you’ve probably recognized that I choose sweet over savory most mornings. The only thing I enjoy as much as a stack of pancakes, crêpes, or waffles, are perfectly scrambled eggs and a toasty, buttery piece of bread Continue…

  11. Savory Rye Waffles: The Shadows

    We grew up in the shadow of Silicon Valley. Where being good at math and science was inherently better than being able to bang out a well-written analysis of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ Some of us couldn’t wait to get out, to learn more about a world outside ‘the bubble.’ Some of us didn’t intend to Continue…
