  1. Home Bar: A Martini Your Way, Plus Rules for Ordering at Bars

    Not many drinks lend themselves to so much expected variation as the Martini. James Bond famously preferred his shaken, though classic bartending would suggest that you stir spirit-only cocktails. Taste is obviously subjective, but try telling that to a busy or indifferent bartender. Depending on the environment of the bar or restaurant, they may not Continue…

    My recommendation for fancy cocktail bars is to ask the bartender to serve you their BEST cocktail.

  2. On Cooking, These Days

    This isn’t a post about motherhood. Or enjoying the moment. It is a post about why I miss me sometimes, and how I plan to get me back 98.9%. For someone who has pretty much turned her entire life upside down with a whole boatload of change in the last year, you might be surprised Continue…

  3. Drake on Cake: An Interview with Joy the Baker

    Are you familiar with Joy the Baker? The lady possesses one of the most refreshing voices on the internet and we’re long-time fans of her blog. Joy’s known for her ridiculously delicious looking baked goods (Taylor Swift has been known to bake up her cookies!). We’ve always been impressed with Joy’s creative takes on all sorts of Continue…

  4. Home Bar: Trinidad Sour

    I’ve once again stumbled into The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon, in which I come to notice that topics of interest pop up all around me. I’m often taken aback to find that something I was just talking about over dinner last night is same subject covered by a popular publication a few days later. It seems like Continue…

  5. 28 Kitchen Essentials for the Home Cook

    Oftentimes, you’ll hear people talk about how much more affordable it is to cook at home than to eat out but having a kitchen stocked with essentials is really the only way to make home cooking achievable and enjoyable. A lot of people ask me what items I feel are essential to my kitchen and Continue…

  6. Home Bar: Naked & Famous

    If my memory serves me correctly, I’ve never set any New Year’s resolutions before… but here I am at the end of January, setting one. Here it goes: in 2016, I resolve to drink more tequila and spend more time with friends. I’ve spent a fair amount of time exploring other spirits, but I haven’t Continue…

  7. Kale, A Love Story (Sponsored)

    This is a sponsored post in partnership with Naked Juice. All words and opinions are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! Kale and I first met at the farmer’s market — at an outing that quickly became a weekly ritual. Previously, the only greens I was Continue…

  8. Frosted Heart Cookies

    Few things are more therapeutic than mixing colors in a bowl and frosting cookies. These cookies involved only my second time using food coloring and I have to say, I’m kind of hooked on synthetic colors. I’m being only mildly sarcastic here. The truth is, I’ve always believed that food can be both pretty and Continue…

  9. Broccoli Mac and Cheese

    We’ve partnered with Got Milk? to bring you today’s recipe. Thanks for supporting our sponsors! It all started with my early attempts to breastfeed my first child. Just weeks in, she wasn’t having it and neither was I. There were tears. A lot of tears. But soon we both moved on and I began to Continue…

  10. Home Bar: Not Your Parents’ Kahlua

    For many imbibers, coffee and alcohol go hand-in-hand (or head-in-hand if you’ve had a few too many the night before!). Many of us who share interests in cooking good food and drinking good cocktails have come to extend the same ritual with regards to coffee. I’ve slowly acquired several of the items mentioned in Kasey’s Continue…
