  1. Home Bar: Rosemary Gold

    I’m always trying to get friends and family to explore different types of drinks — especially if they feature a spirit that they don’t normally drink (or that they avoid drinking). My approach is simple: make them a cocktail that’s too delicious to resist. This tactic proved successful in trying to get my girlfriend to Continue…

    Aperol is a bright red Italian aperitif, with a bitter-sweet orange and rhubarb taste. It's often described as a sweeter and milder version of Campari.
  2. Watermelon Granita with Black Pepper

    I know. It’s September 3rd, and here I am posting about watermelon. Late to the party, much? This summer, I’ve found myself picking up a small watermelon from the farmer’s market almost every weekend. Each week, I swear, they get sweeter and juicier. This one tasted almost like candy, which inspired me to turn it Continue…

  3. Balsamic Eggs with Peaches and Prosciutto

    When I first moved to San Francisco in 2005, I hadn’t made up my mind about it. I wasn’t coming home, specifically, nor was I moving to a city I had long dreamed of living in. In fact, I wanted to stay in San Diego after college but it didn’t feel like the place to Continue…

  4. Home Bar: Tommy’s Margarita

    In keeping with the theme of summery drinks, I’ve been itching to share a recipe for a margarita or paloma. Both are popular Mexican tequila cocktails, and each are members of the sour cocktail family. I’m presenting you with the margarita today, mostly because I see too many people using store-bought sour mixes packed with Continue…

  5. Great Adventures, Double Chocolate Brownies

    Double Chocolate Brownies

    Have you ever wanted to just pack up your things and jet? Having lived in San Francisco for nearly a decade, I’ve been feeling generally exhausted by the challenges that come with city living. I don’t entirely want to give up an urban lifestyle, but there are days when pots fall on my head from Continue…

  9. 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…

  10. Home Bar: The Negroni, a Drink For Every Occasion

    It’s believed that Count Camillo Negroni asked his bartender to stiffen up an Americano cocktail (comprised of soda water, sweet vermouth, and campari) with a swap of gin instead of soda water way back in Italy in 1919. Since then, the Negroni has become the perfect mixed drink for any occasion — a sublime balance Continue…

  11. 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…
