  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. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Single Serving: DJ Raff – Latino & Proud

    If you’re like me, your fave show of the year has been “Broad City.” ‘Cause Abbi Jacobson and Illana Glazer have been reppin’ sneak attack feminism and have a pretty stellar DJ Raff tune, as their theme song. DJ Raff began by experimenting at home with a double tape deck, and an old turntable. That Continue…

  10. 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…

  11. Single Serving: Quilt – Tired & Buttered

    You know we’re nearing year’s end when singles from album’s set to be released the following year start popping up like wild flowers. For example, Boston psych rockers Quilt have dropped a new single from their sophomore album Held In Splendor which is set for a January 28, 2014 release. Packed full of tempo changes Continue…
