My friend Johnson has a shirt that says, “I put ketchup on my ketchup.” Raised in the Midwest, Brock is a BBQ sauce connoisseur naturally. My dad loves himself a good dash of hot sauce at every meal, especially that smokey chipotle Tabasco. I fancy myself a mustard lover. Give me a Dijon or whole […]

  Most people–or at least I use to–think of a daiquiri as giant, pink, blended drink served out of a plastic Eiffel Tower in Vegas. In actuality, it’s a classic cocktail that’s simply rum, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shaken and strained. That’s it. Today, I’ve taken the traditional version and added a refreshing bit […]

Last month, when Anne and I were brainstorming the baby shower menu for our friend Sarah (aka the most gorgeous preggers lady ever. Proof, here.), we wanted the menu to be really fresh and seasonal–very “ladies who lunch”/Ottolenghi-ish/Gjelina-esque, if that makes sense. Of the 19 girls, a few were gluten-intolerant and a few were vegetarian, so […]

I served them in pineapples with fun umbrellas for instant island teleportation! (This also might have something to do with the impulsive […]

I always have a coffee in the morning, but I think it’s my daily superfood green smoothie that jump starts my morning with the perfect nutrient-dense buzz. I feel instantly energized and nourished–and satisfied for hours. The smoothie changes depending on what I have on hand or what’s in season, though there is a basic ratio […]

  I’m a big podcast nerd. It’s true. (Between podcasts, music, and photos, my dinky 32 GB iPhone is constantly at max capacity.)
