  1. How to Store Cheese and Favorite Cheesy Recipes!

    Around the holidays, while browsing for gift ideas, I came across cheese paper bags. I had never heard of cheese paper bags before because, truth be told, I’d been used to storing my cheese in plastic wrap, which is exactly how you’re not supposed to store cheese. Turns out, the best way to store cheese Continue…

  2. Rosemary and Toasted Caraway Shortbread

    Somehow, I’ve managed to avoid all conversations related to snowmaggedons, polar vortexes, and solar vortexes. And yet, I could feel it coming. The itch to to flee. I get that way a lot. In a funk. When nothing feels like it’s quite in its right place. I immediately start throwing things away, including things that Continue…

  3. Kimchi Style Cabbage and Fried Eggs (Or, Faux-Chi)

    March is lot like a long, flat stretch of road somewhere. It’s far enough away from where you’ve left (winter) and not quite to where you’re headed (spring). In terms of writing, March feels like the first sentence, followed by a blinking cursor. It’s a tough one, mentally, to overcome. Most of the country is Continue…

  4. A Peek Inside the January Pairings Box: Brunch Gathering

    If I could, I’d eat breakfast three times a day. And if you’ve gotten to know my taste, you’ve probably recognized that I choose sweet over savory most mornings. The only thing I enjoy as much as a stack of pancakes, crêpes, or waffles, are perfectly scrambled eggs and a toasty, buttery piece of bread Continue…

  5. Savory Rye Waffles: The Shadows

    We grew up in the shadow of Silicon Valley. Where being good at math and science was inherently better than being able to bang out a well-written analysis of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ Some of us couldn’t wait to get out, to learn more about a world outside ‘the bubble.’ Some of us didn’t intend to Continue…

  6. Three Ingredient Grapefruit Popsicles/ Paletas

    Back in the spring of 2003, I embarked on my first solo international flight headed to Siena, Italy by way of Florence, by way of Bologna. I must have had a ‘vision’ for what backpacking abroad looked like because my first-ever eBay purchase was the largest red backpack, made for a man. It weighed roughly Continue…

  7. 5 Great Coffee Subscription Services

    There are so many great methods for home brewing delicious coffee. For example, you can use a V60 dripper, a Chemex, a Woodneck Drip Pot, an Ibrik, and so forth. However, the most important step in brewing delicious coffee isn’t the process – it’s the coffee itself. The best coffee is freshly roasted, ground immediately Continue…

  8. Blood Orange Margaritas

    Before I became a parent, the last time I made a cocktail was for a holiday party which I declared would be a ‘cocktail party.’ I was adamant that we would have signature drinks because who doesn’t have a signature drink? Mine was made with rye whiskey and maple syrup and lasted about four cocktails, Continue…

  9. How To Make Coffee: Turkish Coffee

    Although Kasey and I both enjoy espresso, we rarely make it at home. When we want a strong and deep bite of coffee at home we brew a pot of Turkish coffee instead. The deep, earthy flavors of Turkish coffee are good anytime, but we particularly enjoy it following a meal. To make Turkish coffee Continue…

  10. Buckwheat and Sea Salt Cookie Sundaes

    My favorite sites, blogs, and magazines, often feature articles written about people. People I don’t even know, but they’re the most interesting ones. There are posts about people’s relationships with their moms and dads, their grandmothers and grandfathers, even their pets. I’ve read some great posts about people’s divorces and the reasons behind the shutdown Continue…
