    The beauty of the charcuterie plate is that it's infinitely flexible to accommodate the season, and the occasion.
  2. 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).

  3. Merengue Milk Ice Cream (Leche Merengada)

    Around this time last year, we were beginning to hunker down. Preparing for the twins’ arrival.

    Home Bar: Cygroni (aka Cin-Cyn)

    Negroni Week has crept up on me once again. Every year, I’m surprised to see how much the participation has grown… San Francisco alone has 105 participating bars and restaurants this year donating a percentage of the profits to charities of their choice when you order a Negroni or Negroni variation from their menu. Check Continue…

  9. Home Bar: Spanish Gin Tonic

    Is it summer yet? We’ve had a few glimpses of warm-weather days in San Francisco over the past month, and every sunny day I rush to pair the summery feeling with a fitting drink and/or activity. Park and rosé, beach and light beer, or cocktails and alfresco dining — always in good company of friends Continue…
