    Having access to fresh produce is a luxury, and one that many people don’t have.
  2. Home Bar: Gestalt’s Perception

    Tiki drinks seem to be popping up everywhere in my social media feeds these days. And why not? They’re beautifully presented and perfect for serving up a large dose of distraction from the daily grind. In the past, I’ve often questioned the appeal of tiki bars, especially the drinks — I found them to be Continue…

  3. Rosemary Vanilla Bean Lemonade

    It’s starting to feel like ‘go time.’ My belly is measuring 36 inches. We’re in the very ripest part of summer — when everything feels like it’s dripping in juice. The San Francisco fog has been accompanied by an usual amount of humidity and, unfortunately, mosquitos. And my ability to finally indulge in a glass Continue…

  4. Summer Spaghetti with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

    I just finished reading my friend Jess’s fantastic new book. We finally (finally!) met in person about a month ago after spending years following each other on the Internet — I couldn’t believe it. There we were in Golden Gate Park, with our husbands and kids and soon-to-be kids (mine, not hers). Jess’s writing is Continue…

  5. Jersey-ish Salad

    There was a time when I was a die-hard Jersey girl. New Jersey was the first place I ever lived in America and for a girl who had a sizable collection of Bazooka Joe comics growing up (so much so that her collection was deemed ‘suspicious’ by a stern Russian official examining her backpack on Continue…

  6. Muscovado Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

    “I want to show you something,” she often says with pride these days. Sometimes, it is a new toy. Sometimes, a “fancy trick” on the playground (currently it is hanging off the rail just above the slide with her long legs tucked under her). But either way, there is something magical about a small person Continue…

  7. Home Bar: Cocchi Spritz, Plus Thoughts About “Low Octane” Cocktails

    There comes a time in life when you’re no longer chasing the highest ratio of alcohol by volume (ABV) to dollars. The trend has been going on for a while, with “session” beers and the appearance of “low octane” sections on cocktail menus over the past few years. I love sipping on vermouth and certain Continue…

  8. Flakiest Buttermilk Biscuits with Apricot Jam: On Building a Life

    Back in 2008 when Matt and I first got engaged, we had to tackle a few of the big questions that everyone does when they decide they’re going to not just share a life together, but take on the legal commitment of sharing a life together. Stuff like how we were going to handle our Continue…

  9. Herb Spotlight: 8 Ways to Use Cilantro

    Cilantro has long been one of my favorite herbs. I recognize it’s a somewhat controversial one but I happen to fall into this camp of people. Growing up, my family would often serve stalks of cilantro alongside fresh vegetables on a huge platter. We didn’t use dips, we just ate the fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and Continue…

  10. Home Bar: Building Your Bar, Part 1 – Alcohol & Mixers

      Putting together an alcohol collection is challenging. What should you get? What will you really use? In the early days of building up my home bar, I was filled with anticipation of entertaining friends and satisfying my curiosity of spirits and cocktails. The best advice that I have for someone looking to start their Continue…

  11. Raw Thai Citrus Crunch Salad

    For many years, I consistently brought the same exact salad to work in a square tupperware tucked into a plastic bag that is no longer allowed in the city of San Francisco. It wasn’t revolutionary by any stretch: spinach, berries, walnuts, goat cheese, and a very basic balsamic dressing. Because it was so light, I’d Continue…
