  1. The Ultimate Coffee Float: The Snowy Plover

    When I was about eight months pregnant with the twins, a friend introduced me to the Snowy Plover at Andytown Coffee Roasters in San Francisco. I had spent years journeying out to the Outer Sunset yet somehow, I never caught wind of Andytown. It was one of those crazy hot days that were so common Continue…

    This was something magical. It was like a grown-up version of the root beer float. A revelation. A COFFEE FLOAT.
  2. Friendsday Night, Tulum-Style

    This is a sponsored post in partnership with IZZE. All words and opinions are our own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! There are few things I love more than entertaining but the truth is, the traditional way to entertain really, really stresses me out. There’s a lot Continue…

  3. Heidi Swanson’s Rye Pound Cake

    I’ve been slowly — very, very slowly — reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s book, Big Magic. Every couple of nights when I’m not up late working, or putzing around the internet, I look at it on my nightstand and decide to read a chapter or two. When I first started reading it, I thought I’d breeze through Continue…

  4. Chicken Enchiladas Verdes: Nothing is Ever “Done”

    One thing I’ve quickly realized as a home owner is that nothing is ever ‘done.’ Hard as I struggle to have the picture be ‘complete’ there is always room to change (or shitty pipes to fix before thinking about pretty tile work). I’m reluctantly beginning to accept that this applies to more than just home Continue…

  5. Home Bar: A Martini Your Way, Plus Rules for Ordering at Bars

    Not many drinks lend themselves to so much expected variation as the Martini. James Bond famously preferred his shaken, though classic bartending would suggest that you stir spirit-only cocktails. Taste is obviously subjective, but try telling that to a busy or indifferent bartender. Depending on the environment of the bar or restaurant, they may not Continue…

  6. On Cooking, These Days

    This isn’t a post about motherhood. Or enjoying the moment. It is a post about why I miss me sometimes, and how I plan to get me back 98.9%. For someone who has pretty much turned her entire life upside down with a whole boatload of change in the last year, you might be surprised Continue…

  7. Drake on Cake: An Interview with Joy the Baker

    Are you familiar with Joy the Baker? The lady possesses one of the most refreshing voices on the internet and we’re long-time fans of her blog. Joy’s known for her ridiculously delicious looking baked goods (Taylor Swift has been known to bake up her cookies!). We’ve always been impressed with Joy’s creative takes on all sorts of Continue…

  8. Home Bar: Trinidad Sour

    I’ve once again stumbled into The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon, in which I come to notice that topics of interest pop up all around me. I’m often taken aback to find that something I was just talking about over dinner last night is same subject covered by a popular publication a few days later. It seems like Continue…

  9. 28 Kitchen Essentials for the Home Cook

    Oftentimes, you’ll hear people talk about how much more affordable it is to cook at home than to eat out but having a kitchen stocked with essentials is really the only way to make home cooking achievable and enjoyable. A lot of people ask me what items I feel are essential to my kitchen and Continue…

  10. Home Bar: Naked & Famous

    If my memory serves me correctly, I’ve never set any New Year’s resolutions before… but here I am at the end of January, setting one. Here it goes: in 2016, I resolve to drink more tequila and spend more time with friends. I’ve spent a fair amount of time exploring other spirits, but I haven’t Continue…
