  1. Life-Changing 6 Ingredient Spaghetti Carbonara (Cooking For Each Other)

    For many years — really since we met — Matt and I have cooked together. Not really for each other but with each other. But since we’ve added three kids to our brood in a period of three years, we’ve started to spend less time cooking with each other and more time cooking for each Continue…

    They say good food is the way to a man’s heart but I’d argue the the same is true for a woman’s heart.
  2. Home Bar: Spanish Gin Tonic

    Is it summer yet? We’ve had a few glimpses of warm-weather days in San Francisco over the past month, and every sunny day I rush to pair the summery feeling with a fitting drink and/or activity. Park and rosé, beach and light beer, or cocktails and alfresco dining — always in good company of friends Continue…

    This is a sponsored post in partnership with method.  All words and opinions are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! #fearnomess #stylebymethod It’s taken me a long time to accept a messy kitchen and truth be told, I’m still learning to be ok with a sink Continue…

  4. Rhubarb and Rye Upside Down Cake

    My first spring in Seattle and I’m already learning what it means to get ‘hit’ by the passing season. Coming from California, where spring isn’t quite so distinctive, I wasn’t prepared for the amount of change I would experience all around me, so suddenly. It’s like one morning I woke up to buds on every Continue…

  5. Home Bar: Santeria Rum Swizzle

    It’s not often that you come across someone who truly loves their job, but after my first conversation with Bryan Davis of Lost Spirits, I was left with an image of a sweet-toothed teenager working in a candy store. That’s how excited he was to share more about his ground-breaking technology, which produces spirits that Continue…

  6. The Ultimate Coffee Float: The Snowy Plover

    When I was about eight months pregnant with the twins, a friend introduced me to the Snowy Plover at Andytown Coffee Roasters in San Francisco. I had spent years journeying out to the Outer Sunset yet somehow, I never caught wind of Andytown. It was one of those crazy hot days that were so common Continue…

  7. 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…

  8. Heidi Swanson’s Rye Pound Cake

    I’ve been slowly — very, very slowly — reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Big Magic. Every couple of nights when I’m not up late working, or putzing around the internet, I look at it on my nightstand and decide to read a chapter or two. When I first started reading it, I thought I’d breeze through Continue…

  9. Chicken Enchiladas Verdes: Nothing is Ever “Done”

    One thing I’ve quickly realized as a home owner is that nothing is ever ‘done.’ Hard as I struggle to have the picture be ‘complete’ there is always room to change (or shitty pipes to fix before thinking about pretty tile work). I’m reluctantly beginning to accept that this applies to more than just home Continue…

  10. Home Bar: A Martini Your Way, Plus Rules for Ordering at Bars

    Not many drinks lend themselves to so much expected variation as the Martini. James Bond famously preferred his shaken, though classic bartending would suggest that you stir spirit-only cocktails. Taste is obviously subjective, but try telling that to a busy or indifferent bartender. Depending on the environment of the bar or restaurant, they may not Continue…

  11. On Cooking, These Days

    This isn’t a post about motherhood. Or enjoying the moment. It is a post about why I miss me sometimes, and how I plan to get me back 98.9%. For someone who has pretty much turned her entire life upside down with a whole boatload of change in the last year, you might be surprised Continue…
