  1. Yeast-Free Cinnamon Buns

    I recently joked to a friend that if my content of the past 6 months were turned into a haiku (ignoring the whole 5-7-5 rule), it would go something like this: Motherhood is rough! We live in Seattle! Winter is long! It got me thinking about how each phase in life comes tied to a Continue…

    Each phase in life comes tied to a big theme, or a few mini themes.

  3. Home Bar: The Perennial

    “Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo)…” I find myself singing this song each morning lately as I wake up. It’s been an exceptionally wet winter this year in California, so with spring right around the corner I couldn’t be more excited for a few dry days. And yet, I’m not necessarily ready to Continue…

  4. Tater Tot Waffles

    I was recently lamenting to Matt that I feel like every time I have an opportunity to cook or photograph food, I basically have to approach it like you do a grocery store shopping spree. When I casually browse food bloggers’ Instagram accounts I’m immediately overwhelmed by the IDEA of trying to style something. I’m Continue…

  5. Home Bar: Vieux Carre

    Do yourself a favor and mix yourself one of these right now. Through all of my years of enjoying cocktails, this is the one “complicated” drink that I’ve gone back to time and time again. I try to stick with a max of 3 ingredients in my typical routine, but this one is just so Continue…

  6. Buttery Kimchi Udon

    This weekend, I realized that I’ve been missing the sun. This is what Seattleites talk about when they talk about winter, right? On Sunday, the temperatures hit the 50s and while the twins took a glorious three hour nap, Matt, Neko, and I raked the leaves in our front yard and I felt good. Like Continue…

  8. Home Bar: Bitter in Paradise

    Home Bar: Bitter in Paradise

    Everyone has a story about a drink that they’ve sworn off due to a hellacious night. It usually happened during high school or college or in Mexico. It always ends with bowing to the porcelain god and a promise to never touch a certain alcohol or drink again. My story? I was in high school Continue…

  9. Hawaij Hot Chocolate and 2016

    Hawaij Hot Chocolate

    2016 was one of those years that a lot of us will remember for the rest of our lives. But while it was punctuated by national and world events many of us wish we could unsee and forget, it’s hard to deny that on a personal level, 2016 was a good year for us. A Continue…

  10. Home Bar: Angostura Colada

    I’ve been preparing for colder weather all month, and it is finally here. It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that I started to turn away from summer cocktails and toward sipping on brandy and whiskey to warm up during a few coastal storms that hit the city. While I’ve been shifting Continue…
