When people tell us they don't believe in winter salads, we tell them to check out this recipe. Made with under-appreciated escarole, an abundance of citurs, and a eat-it-off-the-spoon good citrus honey rosemary dressing, this will change your opinion on eating salads when it's snowing outside!
Napa will always have a place in my heart. When I lived in San Francisco, I'd day trip there on the regular. And though there are plenty of amazing places, Bouchon Bistro will always be a go-to for me. It feels like France in the midst of California wine country: the zinc counter, the bakery, and swoon-worthy salmon rillettes.
On the Paris endangered eats list is the Jambon-Beurre sandwich. Nothing more than a super amazing baguette with salted French butter and Parisian ham, it's the simplest combo but a good version is harder and harder to find.
Do the holidays ever seem more cheery than from under a bough of evergreen and twinkling lights? Perhaps paired with a cozy fireplace and a bubbly cocktail? We don’t think so either! That’s why we always make time to bring together friends for an annual holiday cocktail party. And these appetizers are always present!
Some of us are a bit, shall we say, more sentimental than others. And there's nothing like the one-two combo of the end of the year and the holiday season to bring it out. That ornament that you handmade in kindergarten; the nutcracker your siblings broke (and then superglued together) in 1990-so...
This French toast is inpsired by a breakfast we had on a trip to Nashville when we fell in love with the Gulch neighborhood and the coffee shop, Barista Parlor. This easy baked French Toast with apples, bacon, and pecans takes minutes to make but is impressive enough to make for a brunch.
When it comes to cocktails, it's hard to get easier than the Bee's Knees made with nothing more than gin, lemon, and honey. As each season comes along, I like to make different versions with various kinds of honey and flavors (hello, lavender)! But when the temps drop, this is a fave: a sage version that's just as simple but even more sophisticated.
Do you have a travel tradition? Something small you do on every trip? Neither do I, but as of this very moment I want to change that. Starting with sharing some travel inspirations with my fellow travelers.
