It’s been decidedly lovely here lately, which has been a real treat for my farmer’s tan but balls bad for the Cinco roundup I was hoping to have posted earlier this week. Whoops. But I’ve enjoyed such a nice couple of days. Yesterday I strapped on my YOLO hat (I picture it as more of a slouchy beanie, really) and cruised North on Highway 1 to meet a couple of lady friends at Stinson Beach, where (I shit you not) a warm breeze kept us in nearly tropical company for the better part of a day, interrupted only by a few frigid … Read More
Cinco de Mayo Roundup: Cray for ¡Olé!
Hola. (Also — Holla!) Ima keep this short. Reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal shoooooort. (Apparently not that short since I’m playing it pretty fast and loose with the emphasized vowel sounds.) Tomorrow is Cinco. I’m at the lake. Margs are calling. (Yes, I know it’s 8am…) I’d attempt to share one with you in the form of a recipe, but I might be the world’s worse bartender.

Have a festive and safe Cinco, everyone! xoxo, Gossip … Read More
Huevos con Soyrizo with Two-Potato Hash

Sometimes they don’t. I’ll let you guess which kind of Monday I had. Did you guess the sucky one? Geez, I guess that’s more … Read More
Chiles en Nogada — a Whole Foods & Cook Taste Eat Contest
**Update: the Cook Taste Eat recipe competition is now closed. Thanks to all who voted! ** Remember in college, when that Facebook thing came along and it asked you about your favorite movies? Your favorite quotes? Your favorite books? And you had a mild panic attack over whether or not it would be social suicide to list Harold & Kumar alongside When Harry Met Sally, so you threw in Memento for good measure? Yeah, me neither. I’ve never been awesome with the whole favorites thing. There’s too much pressure. You can so easily go too Indie. Too hipster. Too run-of-the-mill … Read More
