  1. Incredible Vegan German Chocolate Cake

    For Matt’s 30th birthday, I baked him a German Chocolate Cake — his favorite, and my very first layered cake. I only had one cake pan at the time, so I had to bake one layer first, then clean my pan and bake the next. I bought shredded coconut (my first time ever, too, because Continue…

    This cake can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and is an excellent dessert to bring to a potluck or a picnic.

  2. Iced Rhubarb-Hibiscus Tea

    There’s a great fallacy in life that adults have things figured out. I realized this when I became an adult, not too long ago (I’d like to believe). Maybe because I’m of the millennial generation, but I still call my dad when I have car problems, and my mom when I have a weird rash Continue…

  3. Home Bar: Beachcomber’s 151 Swizzle

    Over the past few months, I seem to have shifted my booze consumption back to the basics: drinking mostly neat pours (unmixed liquor served without being chilled) or with a touch of water. Don’t get me wrong, I still love cocktails, but I’m finding satisfaction in the subtlety of each spirit lately. And what better Continue…

  4. Sarah Kieffer’s Dutch Baby

    The other day, I posted on Facebook, “Anyone else feel like they’re just barely holding their shit together?” It may have been my most commented on post, ever. It seems like nobody, none of us, feels like they’ve got it figured out. Which is kind of obvious, if you really think about it. But boy Continue…

  6. Yeast-Free Cinnamon Buns

    I recently joked to a friend that if my content of the past 6 months were turned into a haiku (ignoring the whole 5-7-5 rule), it would go something like this: Motherhood is rough! We live in Seattle! Winter is long! It got me thinking about how each phase in life comes tied to a Continue…

  7. Strawberry Milk and Walnut Smoothie

    This is a sponsored post in partnership with the California Walnut Board.  All words and opinions are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! I have been anxiously awaiting spring since Christmas (let’s be honest). To say that this winter has not been my favorite is definitely Continue…

  8. Home Bar: The Perennial

    “Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo)…” I find myself singing this song each morning lately as I wake up. It’s been an exceptionally wet winter this year in California, so with spring right around the corner I couldn’t be more excited for a few dry days. And yet, I’m not necessarily ready to Continue…

  9. Tater Tot Waffles

    I was recently lamenting to Matt that I feel like every time I have an opportunity to cook or photograph food, I basically have to approach it like you do a grocery store shopping spree. When I casually browse food bloggers’ Instagram accounts I’m immediately overwhelmed by the IDEA of trying to style something. I’m Continue…

  10. Home Bar: Vieux Carre

    Do yourself a favor and mix yourself one of these right now. Through all of my years of enjoying cocktails, this is the one “complicated” drink that I’ve gone back to time and time again. I try to stick with a max of 3 ingredients in my typical routine, but this one is just so Continue…

  11. Buttery Kimchi Udon

    This weekend, I realized that I’ve been missing the sun. This is what Seattleites talk about when they talk about winter, right? On Sunday, the temperatures hit the 50s and while the twins took a glorious three hour nap, Matt, Neko, and I raked the leaves in our front yard and I felt good. Like Continue…
