Soup Season

Soup Season

I had minestrone for the first time at a random Italian restaurant somewhere near San Francisco. I don’t know why I remember this so specifically, but my dad and I had just arrived in California and decided to go to the first place we saw […]

It’s Fall, Y’all

It’s Fall, Y’all

Oh, hey! So here’s my ‘sorry I’ve been MIA’ spiel: This summer was BUSY!!! Between a long distance relationship & regular weekend trips to NYC, to New England in July, then Chicago, then Los Angeles, and work and friends and taking any free time I […]

Pretty Pink Pesto

Pretty Pink Pesto

So, I’ve never made homemade pesto before. Everything I’ve read about it is that it’s the bees knees and is 2000% better homemade. I’ve just never given it a go, despite the mortar & pestle I was gifted this past Christmas. WELL. I finally put […]

Lobstahs & Bucket Lists

Lobstahs & Bucket Lists

Hi friends! So I just got back from a cute trip to New England with my mans. Well, not just got back. I got back a week ago. This post is a bit overdue. For me, food is a huge part of traveling. Yes, sightseeing […]

My Perfect Bougie Breakfast Sandwich

My Perfect Bougie Breakfast Sandwich

My morning routine is a daily struggle of wanting to get a breakfast sandwich and choosing not to get one. It has been this way for several years now and I’m fairly sure that will never change. I LOVE a breakfast sandwich. But the ones […]

I’m Glossy

I’m Glossy

There is something immensely satisfying to me about following a recipe to a T and it coming out exactly as it’s supposed to. This is especially true in baking, as it’s a science and following directions really, really matters. Enter: Bravetart’s glossy fudge brownies. (⬅ this […]

Anti-Al Dente, Pro-Fish Taco

Anti-Al Dente, Pro-Fish Taco

A larger portion (than I care to admit) of my cooking inspiration comes from mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram feed. That save feature on IG? Mine is 95% food and 5% random posts I accidentally clicked. Yesterday was Tuesday, also known by the internet as […]

Goes to Chinatown Once

Goes to Chinatown Once

Makes homemade potstickers. Last weekend was my first time visiting (and staying in) Chinatown in New York City. I’ve been to NYC a bunch of times and somehow never visited this charming (sort of) little (not really) neighborhood. Some hot takes: It’s authentic. I know […]
