Olive Oil Zucchini Bread

Renee taught me how to like smoked trout, she opened my world to octopus and made me a preacher of the wonders of oysters.

Arroz Con Pollo with Chanterelles

I’m sitting on our faded white couch alone and in silence; hoping that these quiet moments will reenergize in the way an introvert needs them too after much activity.

This + That

You guys let me first get this out; I have no recipe today. It’s sort of ridiculous how guilty I feel about this BUT I’m still really excited about what I DO have: LINKS!

St. John Bakery Doughnuts

  Friday Donut (or doughnut) Day! It started sometime last year with the simple act of Gabe picking up doughnuts on Friday and then repeating himself the next week.

Bourbon Tonic

We have a sweet little neighbor boy who learned to walk this summer. I’ve watched him progress from timidly taking a few steps while holding onto his mom’s hand to now, where he is practically running trying to keep up with my big boys.

Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix + Giveaway (and ice cream)

Whew. It took me awhile to write out that title. It’s a doozy and I think it accurately shows the doozy of a day we are having around here.

Smoked Chicken & Chorizo Panzanella + giveaway

It seems perfectly fitting to end our Summer Grilling Series (check out the first two recipes: Grilled Rib-Eye, Salmon Burgers) on our official last day of summer.

Peppermint Tea Lemonade

I’m in denial that summer is nearing an end. I’ve been here before and I know myself enough to know that it happens in a moment.

Roasted Apricot Stracciatella

I sit in my office doing the internet version of twiddling my thumbs; bouncing from Facebook to Instagram scrolling through the feeds until my thumb aches and my mind is overwhelmed with images and updates that leave me feeling depleted.

Salmon and Chickpea Salad

I didn’t intend to post two salmon recipes in a row but I did intend to tell you about this one as quickly as possible.

Plank Grilled Salmon Sandwich

Judging by the bug bites, dirt under their nails and their olive skin deepening to a color much like browned butter I say that we’ve been doing summer right; according to the unwritten rules of childhood summers.

Spicy Garlic Dip for Fresh Vegetables

      I had the best intentions of sharing these photos from my trip to Louisiana right after I arrived home in March.

Flank Steak Tacos

I’m not one to repeat recipes but when I do I take notes and then come right here to tell you about it.

Grilled Rib-Eye Steaks with Parsley, Celery & Blue Cheese

    I dipped my toes into the crisp water of the puget sound today. I needed the biting cold relief from the water to cool me down from the heat.

Honey Sweetened Frozen Yogurt

  Recently I spent a few days in Aspen eating and drinking my way through the Food & Wine festival. Go ahead and take a moment to roll your eyes at that last sentence.

Green Rice Salad with Nectarines and Corn

    The window was cracked open just enough so I could smell the ocean and hear the squawking seagulls outside.

A Picnic Primer + Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

On a recent trip to Charlotte, North Carolina I had the pleasure of sitting down to a picnic while learning the origins of informally dining outdoors and the proper picnic etiquette.

Watermelon and Peach Fresh Fruit Cake

The passing of May marks the end of birthday season for us. There was parties, way too much sugar, new photos taken and time spent in the memories of the old ones.

Spring Chopped Salad

I’m trying to give more thought to our table. I put an actual tablecloth on it. I haven’t done that since we’ve had kids and quite honestly, I’m not sure I did it before then.

Roasted Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream Cake

  Here are my tips for having THE best 32nd birthday: Celebrate at least four times throughout your birthday week and feel no shame about it.
