Hello Sunday friends! I hope you’re spending this holiday weekend on a beach blanket in the sun, a watermelon sangria in hand, and plenty of friends to laugh with.
With every trip to the grocery store, I run these few thoughts through my mind. • GAH! I forgot my grocery list.
I have an idea! Spoiler alert: it’s about biscuits. Actually, I’ll just keep this short and sweet.
Good morning and good gravy! It’s time to welcome another Sunday and I suggest we all go play in the sun… or play in the muggy thunderstorms… that’s what I’ll be doing.
I banged my head against the wall one good time. I wanted cheesecake, like a really big slice of cold creamy cheesecake, and I wanted to do anything anything anything at all NOT to make a cheesecake.
There’s a place in Los Angeles where you can drink feisty margaritas made by half-rude actor/bartenders, munch on half-bad chips and salsa, and watch awkward Tinder dates buzz around you.
Someone in my family (I forget exactly who to blame for these memories), was very fond of adding grated carrots to the bottom of their Jell-o molds for holiday dessert.
Hello! Happy Sunday and Happy Mother’s Day! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about some of the lessons I’ve learned from my mother.
Good ol’ Tom Collins is about to get all gussied up. The classic Tom Collins cocktail is a simple mixture of gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar, and sparkling water.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner which means we better have our greeting cards thoughtfully worded and sent, our flowers ordered, and our brunch aprons poised and ready for action.
It’s time we start perfecting our Porch Sit game. A Porch Sit is a late-afternoon gathering of friends, neighbors, a dog or two, a guitar or harmonica (optional), overlapping conversations, and sweet cold cocktails.
Im not one for secrets. Especially where chocolate is involved. I always have a few tricks up my sleeve and I can never keep them secrets for long.
Hello friends and happy Sunday! Should we talk about the fact that it’s already May or does that make you hive-y?
I have to find clever ways to NOT buy a bag of potato chips at the grocery store. By ‘clever’ I mean I just don’t go down the chip aisle.
I have good news for us, friends! Two things. One: it’s Sunday. Two: life is not boring. Life is big and beautiful and staggering and hard and long and short and thank goodness for Sunday.
It’s Summer Pie Practice Season. Isn’t that what you call Spring? Beautiful strawberries are starting to hit the markets, and they’re a bit early for super sweetness, but not too early to start experimenting with pies and practicing our lattice technique!
It’s starting to look like I moved to New Orleans as an excuse to deep fry my California vegetables, make melty cheese dip, live off Red Beans and Rice, and plate after plate of fresh beignets.
What if there could be a treat that was like Rice Krispie treats, but also like a bowl of kettle corn, and then also salty, but then dotted with an obnoxious amount of sprinkles?
Hello friends! I hope this morning finds you happy and rested, ready for buttery toast and a leisurely morning.
The days really are warming. There are the prettiest strawberries in the market. It might almost be time to daydream about watermelon wedges.
