  1. A Peek Inside the December Pairings Box: Scandinavian Gathering

    I’ll admit to having a minor obsession with all things Scandinavian including (but not limited to): Ikea, gnomes, Moomintrolls, Finn Crisps, forest berries, and glogg. I mean, seriously. It took me over two years to create a recipe collection inspired by this region. What I love about the collection is the fact that each recipe Continue…

    What I love about the collection is the fact that each recipe can be made ahead and when served together, this little assortment of plates looks beautiful on a table.
  2. Hot, Buttered Pretzels

    We had a feast for New Year’s. The sort that makes your stomach hurt and demands an antacid. The sort where you want time to stand still a little. To hold on just a little bit longer. A few months ago, Matt and I drove down to Palm Springs for what I hope will become Continue…

  3. Totopos with Salsa De Arbol and Cotija Cheese

    We should be sharing all sorts of resolution-y things with you this week: juice fasts and gluten-free bread. But this recipe is just too good to hold back any longer. Hands down, the best thing about living in California is the Mexican food. Sure, there is Mexican food in New York. And in Texas. And Continue…

  4. A Peek Inside the November Pairings Box: Pizza Party

    On December 31st, 2013, we chased down the mailman to get out the very last shipment of December Pairings Boxes. You may or may not know that I’m actually pretty hands off when it comes to packaging and shipping Pairings Boxes (Matt is a one man show). He’s also the one who handles all our Continue…

  5. NYE Oysters with Classic Mignonette

    This year (2013) has arguably been the biggest of my life. It didn’t come without challenges. The most important event of the year was, of course, having a baby. My Neko Rose is just shy of a year old. Sometimes I look at her, when she is in the bath giggling or concentrating on her Continue…

  6. Crêpes with Vanilla-Maple Apples

    Around this time of year, life tends to move a little faster while work tends to move a little slower. I like it that way. The parties, visitors and trips to the theater. Everything good is in the moment and every day is one to look forward to. When the weather is nice, I’m often Continue…

  7. Megan Gordon’s Whole Grain Gingerbread

    Megan and I met some time ago, when she was still living in San Francisco. I won’t go into some of the big life changes she was going through at the time, but if you follow her blog and read through her beautiful new book, Whole-Grain Mornings, you’ll get a glimpse into her somewhat unlikely Continue…

  8. Cocoa Marshmallows: Season of Giving

    ‘Tis the season of edible holiday treats! Everyone I know is making peppermint bark, molasses cookies (+ smoky ginger-molasses cookies!), gingerbread, chocolate peppermint cookies, and hot chocolate with marshmallows, and I was starting to feel a little antsy that I hadn’t even broken into a jar molasses or peppermint extract. Yes, late at night, when Continue…

  9. A Peek Inside the October Pairings Box: Bistro Dinner

    As much as I love cooking in the summer, when the market feels like a gluttonous feast in and of itself, fall and winter hold a special place in my heart. Warm, textured soups, hearty greens and little nibbles frequently grace our table. I’m a bit behind, I know, in sharing peeks into our past Continue…

  10. Sweet Paul Magazine Kids Holiday Issue + Cheese Sticks Recipe

    We’re big fans of Sweet Paul Magazine, a beautiful lifestyle publication that is printed and published digitally (print issues are available for purchase at Anthropologie). When a new issue is released, I feel like images from the site appear all over the Internet because they are just that beautiful. The folks at Sweet Paul Magazine Continue…

  11. Jam-Filled Bombolini / Sufganiyot

    Writing can at times, feel like a marathon. The final period reminiscent of a big inhale. Sometimes an exhale, depending on what you are writing. We write to let our demons out, to commiserate, to release pent up energy, to give thanks, to question, and to find inside ourselves, the stories worth telling. Sometimes to Continue…
