  1. Wild Mushroom and Challah Stuffing with Loads of Herbs

    If ever there’s a time of year when my heart feels like it’s about to explode, surely it is Thanksgiving, and everything that comes the weeks after. When I was in college, I couldn’t wait to reunite with my high school crew, fall back into our old habits of car talks and endless trips to Continue…

    It’s here, it’s here, it’s here, and it is, unquestionability, awesome.
  2. Home Bar: Death & Co’s Lilywhacker

    The quality and variety of alcoholic beverages available today in major markets is better than ever before, and access to cocktail recipes is just one Google search or Pinterest board away. So opening a hip, new cocktail bar seems like it would be easy enough. And yet, simply providing customers with a menu of classic and/or Continue…

  3. 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…

  4. How to Make the Best Breakfast in Bed

    Mornings at our house aren’t often spent lingering in bed. There’s a fury to our starts: a toddler who demands attention (and breakfast or a snack, immediately upon waking), showers and coffee. Bed-making, and plan-making. Recipe-planning and grocery list-making. And that’s the weekend. Rarely do I find myself home with nothing to do and nowhere Continue…

  5. 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…

  6. Fish Tacos with Pomegranate Salsa: Why Home Cooking is Important

    My sophomore year of college, I had a revelation: that I had the power to feed myself. And I’m not talking about grabbing burritos from the local taqueria (though I did that plenty) or scarfing down a package of mini Hostess donuts (I did that, too). Like the know-how to jump start my car or Continue…

  7. Pumpkin Polvorones

    It’s been outrageously hot in San Francisco. And when I say ‘outrageously hot’ I mean pleasantly warm for people who live in all other parts of the United States. But for the people of our fine city, the weather has been SOMETHING. We’ve been complaining about fruit flies and poor ventilation. Many of us have Continue…

  8. Oven-Fried Chicken Katsu Banh Mi

    Matt and I had a raised voices sort of argument about this sandwich, of all things, last weekend. The kind where you wonder, fifteen minutes after you’ve both stopped yelling, why your face is hot and you’re still feeling combative. About a sandwich. It was, looking back, the stupidest thing we may have ever argued Continue…

  9. Herbed Parmesan Beans with Tomatoes and Figs

    We spent the past weekend in the state of Washington celebrating my delightful friend Megan and her equally-delightful new husband Sam. There’s something about the Pacific Northwest at this time of year: I get why they call it the ‘selling season.’ It’s lush and warm, extra blue, and extra green, without so much as a Continue…

  10. Home Bar: Rosemary Gold

    I’m always trying to get friends and family to explore different types of drinks — especially if they feature a spirit that they don’t normally drink (or that they avoid drinking). My approach is simple: make them a cocktail that’s too delicious to resist. This tactic proved successful in trying to get my girlfriend to Continue…

  11. Watermelon Granita with Black Pepper

    I know. It’s September 3rd, and here I am posting about watermelon. Late to the party, much? This summer, I’ve found myself picking up a small watermelon from the farmer’s market almost every weekend. Each week, I swear, they get sweeter and juicier. This one tasted almost like candy, which inspired me to turn it Continue…
