  2. 7 Summer Cookbooks We’re Loving

    Summertime and the living’s easy… I love cookbooks any time of year, but in the summer, I find myself devouring them every chance I get. One of the things I enjoy most about cooking in the summer is how colorful our meals are. I also find that in the summer, I tend to look to Continue…

  3. 9 Cookbooks to Gift This Holiday Season

    Every year, I put together a cookbook gift guide because cookbooks make excellent gifts. They can say so much (like, “I hope you invite me over for breakfast one morning” or “Congratulations on moving in together!”). They’re equally appropriate to give to your best friend as your colleague. If you’re curious, you can browse my Continue…

  4. Gift Guide: Cookbooks

    I love collecting cookbooks and I love gifting them to friends and family almost as much, if not more. There’s always this feeling of excitement that I get when I leaf through a new book and mentally bookmark the recipes I can’t wait to make. There’s usually a cookie or dessert that immediately jumps out Continue…

    Burrito Bowl with Cumin Lime Crema

    It took me a long time to feel comfortable in the kitchen. I began to enjoy cooking sometime in college, but back then, I owned exactly two cookbooks, and I cooked everything from them religiously (alternating only with the Food Network). Ina Garten became my beloved kitchen companion, encouraging me to make plenty of soups Continue…

    13 Kitchen Tools We Can't Live Without

    Nearly two years ago, we shared our list of 28 kitchen essentials for the home cook. Fast forward to this fall, we had a new kitchen, with a lot more room and storage space, and a fresh slate (Clean drawers! Empty cupboards!). Giving our kitchen a new life made me go back to my list Continue…

    Persimmon Salad with Grapes, Avocado, and Walnuts

    Persimmons and I have a funny relationship. My mom and grandpa love them and for years, I didn’t really know what the fuss was about — especially after I had mistakenly assumed that Hachiya and Fuyu persimmons were interchangeable. I bit into the former — an elongated fruit that seemed as harmless as a pear Continue…

    Kabocha, Olive Oil, and Chocolate Cake

    It snowed in Seattle. On November 4th. I mean…I realize we left California for the PNW but this was something. There’s a part of me that really hates slowing down in any sort of capacity, but there’s a major upside to being slowed down by weather. It literally forces me to relax a little. And Continue…
