Recipe: When You Thought You Were Over Kale Salad…

Recipe: When You Thought You Were Over Kale Salad…

I’m sharing a little secret with you today: my go-to dinner party dish, a raw Tuscan  kale salad. I can’t take credit for the recipe- it’s from incredible Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks fame, but it’s really a dish that could turn any kale hater into a kale believer. And while it may not sound […]

RECIPE: OAT FLOUR BANANA FLAPJACKS

RECIPE: OAT FLOUR BANANA FLAPJACKS

This recipe came about from a boring obsession with oatmeal. I was fed up with bland wheat flour based pancakes that relied on syrup for their flavor. I had a revelation: to make oat flour with oats and a coffee grinder. The banana give a natural sweetness so that syrup is not a necessity. The […]

Winter Harvest: Brussels Sprouts

Winter Harvest: Brussels Sprouts

Gardening may not be the first thing on your mind during these brisk January days, but there are actually plenty of vegetables that flourish in the colder temperatures. Brussels sprouts, named for the Belgian city they are believed to have originated in, are just one of them, and this time of year they are ripe […]

Come Thirsty, Leave Drunk

Come Thirsty, Leave Drunk

I used to dig a good party in my day, and although much of that has passed, I’ll always be down for a cocktail or glass of wine. I’m a complete creature of habit so while I tend to hang out at the same haunts, I still love discovery. That’s why Tumblr is an endless […]

The Truffle

The Truffle

Truffles, the ‘diamonds of the kitchen’, are the most highly revered fungus and have a magic ability to make absolutely anything taste freakishly delicious. We’re not sure how something found under some dirt could be full of so many super powers, but we’re here to dig up the details. Here’s a look at our little […]

Crisp Cocktail

Crisp Cocktail

With Halloween behind us and Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I finally gave into the fact that it’s “that time of year”.

Fruit Salad

Fruit Salad

It’s no mistake that fruit, those tasty little morsels from the earth, are so wildly colorful and fun. Fruits were made for more than just eating: for drawing, for decorating, for wearing. We’re taking a playful look at how artists and designers from all over are having fun with fruits. For once, it’s ok to […]

Squash: The Underdog

Squash: The Underdog

At the very hint of that first autumn breeze, baking season begins. If the fall season is about anything in particular, it would be food. But pumpkin gets all the love; why not shift your focus and your taste buds to something a little more unexpected, but equally versatile and delicious. We’re talking about squash, […]

Ode to Bacon

Ode to Bacon

We’re not the first ones and we won’t be the last ones to sing praises to the wonderful food that is bacon. We would eat bacon for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if we could, wrap it around every other pork-less food in existence, add it to every food and cocktail recipe imaginable, we would put […]

Goth garden

Goth garden

Of course I would wait until after the autumn equinox to think about planting, but someday I will be an adult and have a garden that isn’t just a box of two-by-fours with some wire mesh, nailed together in a side alley. I’ll grow more than succulents and other things that don’t need me, and […]

Cool as a Cucumber

Cool as a Cucumber

Cucumbers. We eat them, we drink them, we pickle them, we even put them on our faces. This often-forgotten about vegetable is riddled with both health and beauty benefits, and we’re here to debunk them all. Cucumbers can help ward off cancer, can de-puff those tired eyes, and are really superb pickled and sticking out […]

Paleta adventure

Paleta adventure

I don’t really remember much about Rent Girl, the graphic novel by Michelle Tea. I remember how my heart felt when I read it: I must have just moved to the Bay Area, living in the apartment where we’d kicked in the door when the landlord who lived on a houseboat never showed up to […]

Uni

Uni

Sea urchins, those spiny, round little guys moving slowly across the rocks and coral at the bottom of the ocean, are actually a delicacy in many parts of the world. Uni may be an acquired taste, but has many health benefits, and is even considered an aphrodisiac. We’re taking a look at what makes the […]

Campfire Cooking

Campfire Cooking

Camping season is our favorite time of year. The sweltering heat has passed, but it’s still warm enough for sleeping outdoors. The best part of any camping trip is hanging around a fire that you built yourself, surrounded by your closest friends in the middle of the woods, and charring a hot dog or melting […]

The Ginger Root

The Ginger Root

The ginger root. Aromatic, pungent, and spicy, and delicious in so many different forms. Ginger is the rhizome of a flowering plant native to subtropical climates, thriving during warm summer days. As the leafy stalk withers, the rhizome is gathered and killed to prevent sprouting. This rhizome, ginger, is most often consumed as a delicacy, […]

Dollar Slices

Dollar Slices

Living in Iowa (yes, I live in Iowa, deal with it,) the prevalence of cool city niceties like rats, knock-off high end bags, high voluminous violence on underground transportation systems and just overall rampant lascivious behavior is kind of low. And that’s a bummer. Especially when one of those niceties I truly yearn for is […]

Goat Cheese

Goat Cheese

Goat cheese, made out of the milk of goats, is more than just freakishly delicious. It also has a number of health benefits, is more easily digestible than cow’s milk and its products, and is the key ingredient to so many amazing dishes. We’re taking a closer look at the soft and tart treat, learning […]

Frozen Treats

Frozen Treats

I already used a post to express my undying affection for sandwiches, but sometimes you’re just not in the mood for one. Sometimes (although for me it’s rare) your tastebuds reject the idea of melted cheese. Sometimes it’s over ninety degrees and you want something refreshing and frozen. Today is one of those days and […]

So Many Sandwiches

So Many Sandwiches

I love sandwiches. Whenever I travel I make specific sandwich plans in advance (“making sandwich plans” involves looking up tons of restaurants online and choosing the ones that offer the most enticing-sounding creations). Other than my refrigerator, my most-used kitchen appliance would have to be my panini press. If you’re getting married soon: add one to your […]

The Fig

The Fig

With its diminutive size and unassuming exterior, the fig is often overshadowed at summer soirees by its fruity brethren. Strawberries, watermelons, blueberries, and the like are at every summer BBQ and pool party, but we think it’s time we all gave a second look to the unrated little guy of summer fruits: the fig. A […]

We Love Ilex Paraguariensis (Yerba Mate)

We’re big fans of pretty much anything food and drink. At this age in time, modern chefs have pages and pages of history to base new and exciting drink and food recipes off of. So in the midst of turning desserts into liquid and lighting drinks on fire, we’re going to take a step back […]

Getting Back On Track

Getting Back On Track

After one too many margaritas, pounds upon pounds of queso, a few burritos and a whole lot of animal crackers (not to mention the countless hours sitting in the car), my body is screaming for good wholesome food and some serious outdoor activity. On one of our gas station stops in the middle of nowhere […]
