  2. The Ultimate Food and Music Guide to San Francisco

    We’ve done a number of City Guides here on Turntable Kitchen, and the other day, as I was taking a stroll through Golden Gate Park, I realized that I’ve never actually done a City Guide for the city that I live in. The one I’ve lived in for the past 8+ years! How crazy is Continue…

  3. Baked Fries with Malt Vinegar Aioli: Blogging for Comments

    When I first started blogging, I never got any comments. Each time a post would go out in the ether, I’d hold my breath a little, wondering if a kind soul would consider waving hello. I still remember my excitement when comments started coming in. Sometimes, I’d get just one, but others, I’d get 10, Continue…

  4. The Best Cold Weather Soup Recipes

    The time has come! Soup weather. Now it’s officially November, which means my favorite holiday is only a few weeks away. I’ve already begun to compile my Thanksgiving recipe ideas list; the hardest part is going to be narrowing it down. What’s on your agenda? Buttermilk biscuits? Cornbread stuffing? Apple pie? I’d love to hear. Continue…

    Moving into a new home is an exciting time: it’s an opportunity to update the coffee table, add some fresh art, and recreate your dream relaxation space. Whether you’re on the move or know someone who is, here are a few ideas for cool gifts that say ‘welcome home.’ 1. Whiskey stones: For the friend Continue…

  6. Belgian Beer-Steamed Mussels: Recalibrating

    Have you ever lost touch with a friend without realizing how it happened? Or found yourself making promises to read more, garden, or take a day off to recharge, without ever actually doing the thing you’ve planned? For months now, I’ve been telling myself I’ll make it to the Alameda Flea Market on the first Continue…

  8. How to Have a Perfect Fall Weekend

    Last weekend, Matt, Neko and I fulfilled one of my ‘Fall Top 5,” referenced in last month’s newsletter. The last time I went apple picking was on a girls trip through the Northeast years ago (if you don’t count picking apples from my parents’ tree). A friend and I drove all over New England and Continue…

  9. Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Cardamom, Vanilla and Almonds

    Living in a twelve unit building where my primary view is an arm-length’s peek into other people’s apartment windows, I’ve realized how much this city is part of my fabric. My community. Not the sort of community where you chat on your front lawn, or bring freshly baked goods to someone’s home after they’ve had Continue…

  10. A Peek Inside the September Pairings Box: The Farmhouse Feast

    Every month, I proclaim that the last month’s Pairings Box was my favorite recipe collection to work on. I guess the truth is that the Pairings Box recipes are always my favorite to work on. Knowing that I have to create three original recipes each month, in addition to the recipes we share on the Continue…

  11. Garlic Cranberry Beans with Roast Chicken and Sansho Spice

    The other day, I walked out of my house and smelled Fall. It was smokey and cold and hit the back of my nostrils in a rush of wind. Despite our typical Indian Summer, the 70-plus temperatures, and no back-to-school rush, my mind just knew that the season had changed. I’ve been burning candles more, Continue…
