  1. Home Bar: Summer Cooler, Two Ways

    Today we’re doing something fun: joining an internet cocktail party with a bunch of other bloggers. You can see all of our creations by searching the hashtag #drinkthesummer, and find links to all the party recipes (boozy and non-boozy) if you scroll to the bottom of the post. — Kasey “The coldest winter I ever Continue…

    For those of us living under Karl the Fog, I figured that we needed something a little stronger to warm us up.
  2. Home Bar: Sherry Cobbler

    If you’re anything like me, you had your first taste of sherry from your parents’ or grandparents’ cabinet, and it was branded in your memory as an overly sweet drink. I’ve kept clear of sherry for a long time due to that experience. Thankfully, bars and restaurants are working to (re)introduce their patrons to sherry Continue…

  3. Grilled Peach Crostini with Feta and Fir Honey

    This post is sponsored by Idyll. All opinions are my own. Thanks so much for supporting the brands who help us do what we do! A few months ago, I came across a lovely new food brand called Idyll, whose products and mission — to support small-scale organic producers in Greece — immediately stood out to Continue…

  4. Green Pozole / Pozole Verde

    It feels inevitable now. That at some point, I would have started to feel homesick, or perhaps sick for the past. Our transition, the move, the birth of the babies, the shift in my career from working in an office to working for myself. It all happened so quickly and was so all-consuming that somewhere Continue…

  5. July Pairings Box Spotlight: Summer Garden Party with IZZE

    A few months ago, we kicked off a fun partnership with our friends at IZZE, beginning with a post about hosting a Friendsday Night, Tulum-Style. And this month, we teamed up with IZZE to come up with another Friendsday Night-inspired recipe collection, this time, for the Pairings Box. We called it the “Summer Garden Party Continue…

  6. Home Bar: Banana Club

    Some recipes are hard to approach when you want to make them at home. Whether it’s expensive equipment, obscure ingredients, or time-consuming steps, there are plenty of drinks that I wouldn’t try on my own. One of the categories that I’ve avoided over the years has been the use of raw eggs. I’ve enjoyed plenty Continue…

  7. How to Make Popsicles: Raspberries & Cream

    I’m not usually very good at staying silent. I’m often quick to judge and make a statement. In the heat of the moment, I often see things in black and white. Rarely do I admit that most things in life lie somewhere in between. But the gray often signifies an acceptance of discomfort, and most Continue…

  8. How To Build a Beautiful Charcuterie Plate For Any Season

    Charcuterie plates have gained major traction over the last couple of years but I like to think I’ve been creating and eating them well before they were ever ‘cool.’ Being Russian, I’m very familiar with the concept of eating a plate of cold cuts, pickles, and vegetables as a pre-dinner appetizer (we call them zakuski). Continue…

  9. 8 Healthy Road Trip Snacks for Your Next Adventure

    Growing up, my dad hated flying. We drove everywhere. I mean everywhere. When it came time to move to California from New Jersey, my dad even drove across the country (thankfully, I was spared and flew with my grandpa months later). Back then, I had a mixed relationship with all these road trips. I was Continue…

  10. Merengue Milk Ice Cream (Leche Merengada)

    Around this time last year, we were beginning to hunker down. Preparing for the twins’ arrival. We hadn’t yet realized that we’d be moving to Seattle, hadn’t yet purchased our home, and hadn’t yet figured out what life would like. The idea behind SOUNDS DELICIOUS was in its infancy. I felt more scared than I Continue…

  11. Cacio e Pepe Zoodles

    Today I’m sharing a recipe I developed in partnership with Thrive Culinary Algae Oil. All opinions are my own. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that help us do what we do! How do you start a post about zucchini noodles when you know so many terrible things are happening around the world? I Continue…
