  1. Walnut and Cranberry Stuffing

    This is a sponsored post in partnership with the California Walnut Board.  All words and opinions are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! There is no holiday I love more than Thanksgiving. Every year, we sweat and pant and cook and cook all day only to Continue…

    We love using challah for stuffing but we wanted to experiment with mixing savory and sweet, and really playing up holiday flavors.
  2. Home Bar: Fistful of Pears

    One of the most entertaining booze-filled days in recent memory was spent inside of a large, converted hangar, now occupied by copper stills, fermentation tanks, barrel storage, and a bottling line. It was a weekday, and I took off of work to spend time with the folks at St. George Spirits, including distillers Lance Winters Continue…

  3. Pumpkin Chocolate Cake With Soft Merengue

    If you’re like me, you’re still processing last week’s events. I had booked a girls trip to Palm Springs nearly a year ago. Our departure date: November 10th. An insignificant day a year ago and one that I had been looking forward to with each passing month. Of course I had assumed, like everyone else Continue…

  4. Pickle-y Egg Salad Toast

    We’ve been reading this children’s book a lot lately. It’s written and illustrated by Carson Ellis, the wife of The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy, and given that food and music is kind of our jam here, I couldn’t help but get it. The title struck me: Home. To be honest, reading books to a toddler is Continue…

  5. Weeknight Dinner Tricks

    Weeknight dinners can be so stressful. Are you with me? I found them to be sorta stressful when we had one kid. When we added two more, I began to question whether I’d ever eat a home-cooked dinner (for real) again. Browsing our recipes, you might think that we make fancy-pants dinners every night of Continue…

  7. Baked Applesauce Molasses Donuts

    Ah, relief. I’ve said it before: despite my undying love for summer,  often find it sort of overwhelming. There’s the self-imposed pressure  ‘to summer’ right. Thankfully, fall is all about relaxing and while I am sad to see the warm days and sunshine wane, I am strangely happy to have the pressure of summer lifted Continue…

  9. Lentil Chili

    This post was created in partnership with Canadian Lentils. All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting our sponsors, who help us do what we do!  Chili is one of those recipes that our family turns to over and over again. It’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser and a life saver because it can be thrown together quickly Continue…

  10. No-Cook Green Gazpacho

    I give my mom a lot of credit for developing in me a love for fresh produce. Like many people my age, I lived through a time when we drank soda, ate frozen fish sticks, and ate a lot of Eggo Waffles (no regrets!). But that didn’t seem to interfere with our family’s intake of Continue…
