  1. Frosted Heart Cookies

    Few things are more therapeutic than mixing colors in a bowl and frosting cookies. These cookies involved only my second time using food coloring and I have to say, I’m kind of hooked on synthetic colors. I’m being only mildly sarcastic here. The truth is, I’ve always believed that food can be both pretty and Continue…

    What we’re looking at here folks is sugar and butter, layered with sugar. Because that is what this holiday is all about!
  2. Broccoli Mac and Cheese

    We’ve partnered with Got Milk? to bring you today’s recipe. Thanks for supporting our sponsors! It all started with my early attempts to breastfeed my first child. Just weeks in, she wasn’t having it and neither was I. There were tears. A lot of tears. But soon we both moved on and I began to Continue…

  3. Home Bar: Not Your Parents’ Kahlua

    For many imbibers, coffee and alcohol go hand-in-hand (or head-in-hand if you’ve had a few too many the night before!). Many of us who share interests in cooking good food and drinking good cocktails have come to extend the same ritual with regards to coffee. I’ve slowly acquired several of the items mentioned in Kasey’s Continue…

  4. Matcha Crêpes with Whipped Cream, Berries, and Cacao Nibs

    I’ve talked a lot about crêpes in the past — I grew up eating my grandma’s thick, buttery ones (we called them blini) and later my mom’s. It wasn’t until after college that I realized I could make my own crepes whenever I wanted. It was one of those funny realizations. I still remember my Continue…

  5. How To Make Coffee: The Perfect Aeropress Technique

    I love my Aeropress. It’s super easy to use: add coffee, add water, and press. Although that’s a bit of a simplification, it really is hard to go wrong. I’m also a fan of how portable it is. Virtually indestructible, you can cram it into any carry on bag while you’re traveling. I bring one Continue…

  6. On Fear and Sesame Salt Pretzel Twists

    I’ve been thinking about fear. Where it comes from and how to let it go. You see, I spend and have spent a lot of time being afraid. I was afraid to have a child, lest it should alter the course of my life indefinitely (it did). I’ve been afraid to leave jobs that I’ve Continue…

  7. Sparkling Cranberry Shrub

    Most of 2015 has been a blur and something tells me that 2016 might be, too. I recall making crab cakes for breakfast in our pajamas and driving up to Stinson Beach with Matt and Neko on New Year’s Day before eating a late lunch at Stellina in Pt.Reyes. I had this realization that day Continue…

  8. The Very Best Dark Chocolate Pudding

    My first Christmas in America was a confusing one at best. Coming from Russia (by way of Israel) where we had a New Year’s tree and a fellow named ‘Ded Moroz’ to celebrate with, I wasn’t sure who this Santa character was and why his lady sidekick was a grandma wearing a sweater and not Continue…

  9. Home Bar: Brandy (& Tiki) Alexander

    Aziz Ansari’s Master of None is my favorite new show on Netflix. There are two episodes — “Parents” and “Old People” — which perfectly showcase how so many of us express complete disregard towards our heritage and the history of our (grand)parents. Older generations had lives that we can’t even begin to imagine! My late Continue…

  10. Homemade (Indoor) S’Mores, Memories of Summer

    I’ll always remember the summer (and fall) of 2015 as the one that we spent living at Ocean Beach. Historically, the San Francisco summer has been the most dreaded of seasons. Misty, cold, dreary, and foggy, it’s the time of year when San Franciscans flee to warmer pastures. We retreat to the North, East, and Continue…

  11. TK Market Update: Cookie and Vinyl Pairing!

    When Matt and I got married, I adopted his record collection and he adopted my love of all things baked, doughy, and chocolatey. To this day, I think we can both agree that few things are better in life that a warm chocolate chip cookie, straight from the oven, accompanied by some good tunes. Which Continue…
