10 Feb Spicy Apple Hand Pies

What makes a pie better? Being handheld. And able to kick you in the teeth with spice.   Depending on her temperament and level of spice tolerance, your grandmother will either find this take on the classic apple pie invigorating or a terrifying abomination. Personally we think a little kick of non-traditional apple pie spices help to balance out the sweetness. Hand pies also eliminate the need for hand-washing all of grandma’s silver serving pieces. Just be…

09 Feb Homemade Flour Tortillas

  Happiness is a warm tortilla. That lyric has been wrong this whole time.   A fresh flour tortilla is absolute heaven. If you’ve never been lucky enough to live in an area where they’re readily available, this recipe will change your world for the better. Easy, fluffy, and the perfect compliment to any kind of meal, we won’t blame you if every breakfast, lunch, and dinner is wrapped in its flour-y goodness for the next…

06 Feb Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Spoil Someone Edition

  We always have a choice about how to approach things in life, my darlings, and our reactions to holidays that tell us we must display our romantic affections for a particular person on that particular day are just one of those choices. I am here to tell you that any reaction you have is a valid one, certainly, but I will also strongly suggest the following: Choose someone you love in any way whatsoever,…

05 Feb Martinez Cocktail

Meet your martini’s Granddad. And show some respect, son.   Nearly everyone has heard of a martini thanks to James Bond, but not many know of its predecessor, the Martinez. A little more refined, the Martinez starts with barrel-aged Old Tom Gin (feel free to use any barrel-aged gin of your choice) which makes it oakier, sweeter, and gives it that auburn color none of its other gin friends have. Sweet vermouth is something you should…

02 Feb Grilled Corn on the Cob

  Rebel against winter. With. . .corn?   Is it still too cold for grilling? That’s incredibly rude of the weather, in our opinion. At any rate, we’ve reached that stage of the winter where it seems like we live in the world of Westeros and it will last for many years instead of just for another few months or weeks. Unless you live in Australia or South America, in which case, consider this post…

30 Jan Project Orange Thumb

I am so excited to be able to parter with Fiskars’ Project Orange Thumb and share it with you. Community-based initiatives, and especially community gardening, has always been an important cause for me. I have my own vegetable and fruit gardens at home, and I invite my friends, family, and neighbors to plant and tend to their own plots here too. So when I heard that Fiskars was leading an initiative to give tools, materials, and…

30 Jan Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Big Game Edition

I am fairly certain, my darlings, that as we age time speeds up. Not actually, but just as we perceive it. I am sure there is A Science Explanation for it (oh why yes look here one is) but the point is that I kept thinking The Big Game was weeks away, and now here it is upon us very suddenly, just as with every holiday or cultural event we have decided as a society…

27 Jan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Macarons

Chocolate chip cookies meet their cultured French cousin. And they get on quite well.   The “holiday” we all know as Valentine’s Day or Single’s Awareness Day is quickly approaching, and wouldn’t it be nice to have something fancy and impressive up our sleeves to make for our loved ones? Or for ourselves, because then we don’t have to share.   Macarons are the perfect candidate because while they are delicious and delicate and do require…

26 Jan Eggs Beauregard

Eggs Benedict gone Southern. Now with bacon.   We apologize for showing you this on a Monday, but at least it will give you something to look forward to all week when you can’t resist making it for Sunday brunch. Eggs Beauregard is simply the southern answer to Eggs Benedict, and like all of its many cousins- Eggs Blackstone (instead of ham, thick cut bacon plus a tomato), Eggs Atlantic (salmon), Huevos Benedictos (chorizo)- your preference mostly…
