  1. Hawaij Hot Chocolate

    Hawaij Hot Chocolate and 2016

    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…

    In 2016, I learned to trust myself whole-heartedly, in a way I hadn’t for a long time (or maybe, ever).
  2. 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…

  7. Home Bar: Fistful of Pears

    One of the most entertaining booze-filled days in recent memory was spent inside of a large, converted hangar, now occupied by copper stills, fermentation tanks, barrel storage, and a bottling line. It was a weekday, and I took off of work to spend time with the folks at St. George Spirits, including distillers Lance Winters Continue…

  8. Pumpkin Chocolate Cake With Soft Merengue

    If you’re like me, you’re still processing last week’s events. I had booked a girls trip to Palm Springs nearly a year ago. Our departure date: November 10th. An insignificant day a year ago and one that I had been looking forward to with each passing month. Of course I had assumed, like everyone else Continue…

  9. Pickle-y Egg Salad Toast

    We’ve been reading this children’s book a lot lately. It’s written and illustrated by Carson Ellis, the wife of The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy, and given that food and music is kind of our jam here, I couldn’t help but get it. The title struck me: Home. To be honest, reading books to a toddler is Continue…

  10. Weeknight Dinner Tricks

    Weeknight dinners can be so stressful. Are you with me? I found them to be sorta stressful when we had one kid. When we added two more, I began to question whether I’d ever eat a home-cooked dinner (for real) again. Browsing our recipes, you might think that we make fancy-pants dinners every night of Continue…
