Hawaiian Pineapple Ham Grilled Cheese

Let this be a PSA on behalf of all our Hawaii friends out there. Hawaiian pizza doesn't come from Hawaii, but what they can't deny, is that no matter how it comes together, pineapple and ham make for a really delicious combo – especially when cheese is involved and especially when it's in this Pineapple Ham Grilled Cheese.

Charred Jalapeño And Carrot Margarita Cocktail

Baja California, I've got a thing for you. We've hung out a fair amount and made some good memories. Like that time I had beginners luck and caught a marlin within 1 hour of setting sail? Or that time I off-roaded for 45 minutes all in the name of a meal and then came across Flora Farms? That's where I first came across the idea of a Carrot Margarita: like a pressed juice gone rogue and totally worth every bit of effort.

24 Hour Itinerary: Amsterdam, Netherlands With Marieke Verdenius

Marieke Verdenius has a fresh, minimal, and decidedly Northern European aesthetic and it's apparent in everything she does from her photography to her work as an editor of the Dutch editon of Jamie Magazine. Her stunning Instagram feed caught our eye when we were scouring (er, stalking) Dutch food people in anticipation of our trip last December and we knew then she'd be a perfect fit to show us how to spend one perfect day in Amsterdam.

{Pa amb tomàquet} Spanish Tomato Bread

Mockingbird Hill is a bar in DC and has unique flairs like pour-over coffee, punk music, and industrial decor. But, the owner, Derek Brown, is a self-proclaimed sherry advocate and has made Mockingbird Hill into a sherry and ham bar. The food is simple but well done and one of my favorites was his twists on the classic tapas bite, Pan Con Tomate.

{Haupia Pie} Hawaiian Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie

My mother used to have a not-so-secret stash of Mounds candy bars and I thought they were just the worst. Well, with the rise of the vegans, coconut milk has become ever-more popular and I've done an aboutface. And it's a good thing because otherwise I wouldn't have ever tried Ted's Bakery Chocol...

Vanilla Poundcake with Kumquat-Thyme Marmalade

February in Northern California is one of our favorite times of the year to road trip. It's that one moment when you can hit Napa, hike into the redwoods, and skip down to Big Sur and have it all to yourself. And when we road trip, we like to bring provisions; car snacks like this Vanilla Poundcake with Quick Kumquat Thyme Marmalade  so we can pull over at a vista and slice a piece and slather it with marmalade.
