  1. Tater Tot Waffles

    I was recently lamenting to Matt that I feel like every time I have an opportunity to cook or photograph food, I basically have to approach it like you do a grocery store shopping spree. When I casually browse food bloggers’ Instagram accounts I’m immediately overwhelmed by the IDEA of trying to style something. I’m Continue…

  2. Home Bar: Vieux Carre

    Do yourself a favor and mix yourself one of these right now. Through all of my years of enjoying cocktails, this is the one “complicated” drink that I’ve gone back to time and time again. I try to stick with a max of 3 ingredients in my typical routine, but this one is just so Continue…

  3. Buttery Kimchi Udon

    This weekend, I realized that I’ve been missing the sun. This is what Seattleites talk about when they talk about winter, right?

    Hawaij Hot Chocolate

    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…

  7. 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…
