A week or so ago, my husband asked why I don’t take more of his suggestions in the kitchen. I was confused at first and then realized that this was indeed something that I do. My kind and wonderful husband has quite imaginative suggestions. Some might even rival Grant Achatz…ok that is a bit of … More Apple Butter…With A Twist
The time has come! The year is finally coming to an end and I am looking forward to the next year. I remember other years when this day has come that I just couldn’t wait for the next year because I was over it and wanted a fresh start. This isn’t the case this year. … More Reflections on 2017: A Year Without Resolutions
I will skip the “Sorry I haven’t written in forever” speech because what’s the point? Since my last post, fall is upon us in Seattle. The cold has set-in and the rain is on its way. Pumpkin season is in full swing and our house is lightly scented with fall candles. Here is my shameless … More Pumpkin Crescent Rolls
If I am being completely honest, I haven’t been feeling like myself for a quite a while. I have only halfheartedly wanted to blog. I have tons of trashed or half written posts, but I just haven’t had the drive or desire to continue. Call it a quarter-life crisis if you will. I … More Soft Sprinkle & Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookies
Like almost every other holiday, Passover always sneaks up on me. I blinked and here it is. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t stressed, but I’m not sure stress is really the right word. Maybe overwhelmed? It always seemed so easy when I lived at home. I didn’t have to do any … More What’s for Seder?
I have done a decent amount of traveling, but outside of the states, the place that I have spent the most amount of time is Israel. Politics aside, cause this is not that kind of blog, I ate more amazing meals and food in general there than anywhere else. For many who have not ventured … More How much hummus is too much?
With the resurgence of so many superhero movies and shows, and the pestering of my boss, I realized that I never really explained why I started this blog or where my seemingly odd name choice came from. For starters, the reason I started this blog was not to be “discovered” or to become insta-famous. I happen … More Origin Story
When I sat down at the beginning of the year, I promised myself that I would keep up with the blog better and then I blinked and it was March. Well I am sorry, but I will try to do better. Just like this blog getting away from me, Purim has snuck-up on me. For … More Chag Purim Sameach! It’s Hamentaschen Season!
In my humble opinion, I think that pies are underrated. Be it your simple apple pie or a savory pie, I can’t get enough of it! There is something about a buttery, flaky crust that just pulls me in. I will admit though, cue the judgment, that 95% of the time I use a pre-made … More Spinach Ricotta Pie
Well, it is a new year! New year and new me…that’s what everyone is saying right? I am not sure I buy into all of that, but I am all for trying to do more or working harder to achieve goals. With that said, I do have a little bit of a New Year’s resolution … More Hello 2017 and Vanilla Buttermilk Cupcakes!
