Photo Essay: McMinnville, Oregon
This past summer we stayed at McMinnville, Oregon, an impossibly cute town in the Oregon Wine Country. We tasted wine and ate too much. This past summer AJ and I took to the road and wound our way from San Francisco through the Pacific Northwest. We eventually ended up in Vancouver to take a cruise
Sponsored Post: Pumpkin Butter “Pop-Tarts”
These fun to make (and eat) Pumpkin Butter “Pop-Tarts” are the perfect Autumnal treat for breakfast or just a snack! I’m not ready for Fall. Mostly because it has been unreasonably cold here in San Francisco all Summer long and I want that sort of over-the-top oppressive heat that feels like a ...
Photo Essay: Oregon’s Historic Columbia River Highway (and a little more)
Oregon is sort of magical wonderland. Though I often visit Portland (though sadly I’ll be missing this year’s Feast Portland) I rarely have a chance to explore the rest of the state. So when AJ and I were looking at places to visit this past summer, the Pacific Northwest was high on our list. ...
BBQ Shrimp and Grits
BBQ Shrimp and Grits are an easy meal to make. Using stone-ground grits and cooking them slow and low brings out their savory flavor! When AJ is away I eat awful. Box mac and cheese, instant ramen, and a lot of carry out, specifically of the cheap Chinese food type. I’m not sure why I […] The post
Peach and Blackberry Pie
A Midwest Summer experience: learning to fire a gun, baking a peach and blackberry pie and how food brings us all together. “If you at any point feel uncomfortable, you should yell out ‘CEASE FIRE’ and everyone will put their guns down.” Said the man in the instruction video at the shooting range.
This made-from-scratch Cheeseburger Pasta is loosely inspired by a box mix that I used to make in college, but is WAY better! True confession time. Growing up my mom was a pretty awesome cook making sure that we had a hot homemade meal at home every single night. And though I took a class in […] ...
Sponsored Post: Mocha Pots de Creme
These easy-to-make mocha pots de creme are perfect meal ending on a warm summer evening. “I would have eaten more of this if I could…” said my friend Annie as she handed off the rest of the mocha pots de creme to my partner AJ. He finished the half empty mason jar without a thought […] The post ...
These easy-to-make pretzel buns use baking soda to “pretzel-fy” the dough. They’re my favorite burger buns! This whole food blogging thing came about accidentally for me. When people ask me how I became a recipe developer, food writer and photographer I usually tell them that I stumbled into it. I
Earl Grey Blueberry Coffee Cake
An easy infusion of tea in scalded milk, makes this Earl Grey Blueberry Coffee Cake incredibly delicious and a snap to make. I have a new obsession and its name is Snapchat. Part of me wants to curl up in a ball and hide under a rock when I admit that. I want to call […] The post Earl Grey ...
A Minute To Be Ourselves (with a Plum and Rhubarb Cobbler)
In times of crisis and grief, the only thing I could do was go into the kitchen and bake. This Plum and Rhubarb Cobbler is the result. This past week has been pretty devastating. I picked up my partner AJ in L.A. on Saturday, after the AIDS Lifecycle only to wake up the next morning […] The post A
