  1. How to Host an Ice Cream Social

    A few weeks ago, we got together with a few friends for an epic gathering in our backyard: an ice cream social! The backyard is what really sold us on our house and it has been a dream being able to enjoy it so much this summer. That said, we haven’t had nearly enough parties Continue…

    Everything you need to know about hosting an ice cream social.

  2. Peek Inside: Our Living Room and Audio Setup

    A few months ago, we shared some peeks inside our home with you. Specifically, we showed you the room where we probably spend 50% of our time and where a lot of our food photos are shot: our dining room. As you can imagine, the other room that gets the most use from us is Continue…

  3. Friendsday Night, Tulum-Style

    This is a sponsored post in partnership with IZZE. All words and opinions are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! There are few things I love more than entertaining but the truth is, the traditional way to entertain really, really stresses me out. There’s a lot Continue…

  4. Turntable Kitchen’s Holiday Gift Guide for Kids

    I love the holidays but I’ve finally realized that they’re the most fun when either you’re a kid or you have a kid. Neko is finally at the age where she gets ridiculously excited about new toys, games, clothes, and books and buying her stuff isn’t just about me anymore (let’s face it, all those Continue…

  5. Gift Guide: Cookbooks

    I love collecting cookbooks and I love gifting them to friends and family almost as much, if not more. There’s always this feeling of excitement that I get when I leaf through a new book and mentally bookmark the recipes I can’t wait to make. There’s usually a cookie or dessert that immediately jumps out Continue…

  7. How to Make the Best Breakfast in Bed

    How to Make the Best Breakfast in Bed

    Mornings at our house aren’t often spent lingering in bed. There’s a fury to our starts: a toddler who demands attention (and breakfast or a snack, immediately upon waking), showers and coffee. Bed-making, and plan-making. Recipe-planning and grocery list-making. And that’s the weekend. Rarely do I find myself home with nothing to do and nowhere Continue…

  8. How to Host a (Homemade) Bagel Brunch

    Elijah’s Deli welcomed me with open Jewish grandma arms the first time my parents dropped me off in San Diego to start college as a freshman. And visit after visit, we always seemed to end up there for lunch or brunch. Nestled in an inconspicuous mall in La Jolla, it was the sort of place Continue…

  9. How to Throw a Killer 1st Birthday Party

    How to Throw a Killer 1st Birthday Party

    All photos in this post are by the talented Rachelle Derouin. A few weeks ago, we celebrated our daughter Neko’s 1st birthday at my parents’ house. Not being much of a DIY’er in recent years, I went a little overboard with the planning, decorations, and cooking. I bought bamboo forks and hand-stamped the letter N Continue…

    How to Ask Someone to Dinner (And Plan the Perfect Evening)

    With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought I’d share some thoughts on what it means to ask someone to dinner. I’ve been married for almost five years so it’s rare for anyone to ask me to dinner but I’ve been on the receiving end of a lot of single gal stories about dudes who Continue…
