09 Jan Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Self-Care Edition

We have survived, hopefully unscathed, the holiday season. A new year is upon us, all annoyingly fresh and full of the same problems we had on December 31st. However shall we persevere, my darlings?

08 Jan Pomegranate Whiskey Sour

When a few weeks ago we posted my recipe for the red-currant whiskey sour, a friend requested a version done with pomegranate.

In some cases we are helped by exotic culinary traditions where the man ingenuity…

05 Jan Sweet Slaw Fish Tacos

  Today was an abrupt return to reality, with many of us coming off of a long, lingering holiday vacation to be met abruptly with overflowing inboxes and the deadline for all of those healthy resolutions we made.   Healthy doesn’t have to mean a sad bowl of flavorless cabbage soup, however. Instead, try turning that head of cabbage into some fresh slaw for these relatively fast fish tacos for the whole family. Bonus: they…

30 Dec Seeing Red

You’re walking along a desolate, winding country road—oaks arching overhead, birds chirping in the distance, a slight breeze in your face—when the ground beneath you rumbles. You stop, unsure. Turning, you catch the glint of sunlight off glass and hear the distinctive roar of a 12-cylinder engine downshifting around the turn. Then you see it, a classic, 1960’s red Ferrari, hugging the road and barreling towards you. In a flash of distinctive red, it banks…

18 Dec “Liquid Intelligence” and a Brown Butter and Sage-Infused Rum

I have been following Dave Arnold’s adventure in the world of food and drinks for quite some time now. First through his blog and then via his weekly podcast, both named “Cooking Issues“. When I heard that he was finally publishing a volume on his innovative cocktail making techniques, I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into it (it was the closest I ever got to getting an Amazon Prime subscription).   When it came…
