Blackberry Peach Margarita with Spicy Salt

Blackberry Peach Margarita-6

Blogging can be a lonely endeavor. A lot of it is done in the privacy of your home- experimenting in your kitchen, making a mess trying to get something to drip just so in the name of food styling, editing photos that after a while all start looking the same, and wracking your brain trying to think of something clever to say. By the time you hit publish you may have spent 5-6 hours on your own working on a post that may take a reader 30 seconds to scan. It can be lonely but we do it because we love it.

Tomato and Corn Galette

It’s August and I keep seeing mentions of summer being over but the 90+ degree days tell me otherwise. The evenings hint of an impending change. While I still get painful mosquito bites whenever I dare to bare my legs, I can feel a coolness in the air at night. I try to ignore the…

Rampchi-13

Rampchi Or Kimchi Made With Ramps

This post is about a month too late. I figure I’ll just post it for next spring when the ramps pop up again after a long winter. Ramp season is tragically short and my love of them is so deep that I figured I needed to find a way to preserve them to eat throughout…

Balsamic Skirt Steak Tacos with Blue Cheese and Chimichurri

I’m partnering with Castello for a Summer of Blue. A big thank you to Castello for sponsoring this post! I seem to be on a grilling kick since the weather this May has turned to weather you’d typically experience in the DC area in mid-August. Yesterday it was sunny, hot, and humid at dawn. The heaviness…

Grilled Pizza-6

Grilled Pizza Two Ways

This is a post sponsored by Colavita and inspired by Italian summer grilling. The content and opinions expressed below are mine. An unseasonably cold spring has turned into a hot, sticky summer seemingly overnight. Scarves and jackets quickly turned into flowing dresses and open-toed shoes as I attempt to commute to work in DC by…

Hwajeon – Sweet Matcha Rice Cakes with Fresh Flowers and Honey Syrup

When I was in my early twenties my immune system decided that tree pollen is my body’s worst enemy and I developed seasonal allergies. When I…
