  1. Single Serving: Hop Along – How Simple

    In 2015 Hop Along released my favorite album of that year, Painted Shut. The collection defied specific genre distinctions and relied on depth, artistry, brilliant songwriting and musicianship – not to mention an inimitable vocal performance from Frances Quinlan. This April the Philly band will return with Bark Your Head Off, Dog and the first single “How Continue…


  2. The Only Minestrone Soup Recipe You Need

    The Only Minestrone Soup Recipe You Need

    It’s soup weather! And yes, I did make this recipe before we took our tree out, but aren’t those twinkly lights so pretty? I don’t know about you, but I feel like 2018 just blew the front door open. Not in a bad way, just in a I-can’t-keep-up-way. I spent a good amount of time Continue…

  3. 2017 Hopscotch Music Festival Recap

    Another year, another Hopscotch is in the books; and somehow 2017 managed to exceed the lofty expectations I had leading into it. There were so many standout performances this year – and everything seemingly went off without a hitch, so first off, shoutout to the Hopscotch organizers for putting together such a stellar weekend. As Continue…

  4. How to Host an Ice Cream Social

    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…

  5. Home Bar: Banana Club

    Some recipes are hard to approach when you want to make them at home. Whether it’s expensive equipment, obscure ingredients, or time-consuming steps, there are plenty of drinks that I wouldn’t try on my own. One of the categories that I’ve avoided over the years has been the use of raw eggs. I’ve enjoyed plenty Continue…

  6. 8 Healthy Road Trip Snacks for Your Next Adventure

    Growing up, my dad hated flying. We drove everywhere. I mean everywhere. When it came time to move to California from New Jersey, my dad even drove across the country (thankfully, I was spared and flew with my grandpa months later). Back then, I had a mixed relationship with all these road trips. I was Continue…

  7. 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…

  8. Home Bar: Brandy (& Tiki) Alexander

    Aziz Ansari’s Master of None is my favorite new show on Netflix. There are two episodes — “Parents” and “Old People” — which perfectly showcase how so many of us express complete disregard towards our heritage and the history of our (grand)parents. Older generations had lives that we can’t even begin to imagine! My late Continue…

  9. Home Bar: Fall in Manhattan

    The classic Manhattan was probably the first real cocktail that I came to enjoy as I graduated from shots and Mind Erasers after college. At the time, the fancy cocktail trend had yet to hit San Francisco, so the cocktails I drank had the quality you might expect from a dive or airport bar. They Continue…

  10. Apple Cider Cakes from Sunday Suppers

    A friend I was recently hanging out with at a wedding said, “I don’t think people read blogs anymore.” She hasn’t been blogging much herself, and was trying to figure out what it was she wanted out of blogging, if she were to return to it. It made me wonder if the statement is true. Continue…

  11. Home Bar: Wanderlust

    Sometimes, when I’m feeling wanderlust, all I have to do is pick up a drink. They say that smell is the strongest sense tied to memory, but as cheesy as it sounds, those Corona commercials make a lot of sense to me. I pour myself a margarita or almost anything with Mezcal and I’m reminded Continue…
