Over the past few weeks, my food shopping habits have changed. While I used to drop by my local co-op every few days (taking the time to explore my options for fresh, in-season foods instead of treating the trip as a frenzied errand), I’ll admit that as of writing this, it’s been just over two weeks since I’ve been to ...

This might sound like the narrator at the beginning of Love Actually, but whenever the state of the world gets to be too much, staying home and working on a project in the kitchen sounds just right to me. And with all that’s going on right now (not to mention the time that many of us are lucky to have at ...

One of my all-time favorite ways to make anything taste better is by adding herbs (and lemon, but let’s stick with herbs here for a second). Though dried will work in a pinch, fresh herbs give you the pop of flavor and the freshness and can brighten up just about any dish in no time. Soup that’s sort of flat-tasting? ...

I grew up with a dad who loves to cook. Every Sunday, I’m awoken with homemade biscuits, sausage gravy, baked hash browns, a few strips of bacon, and two sunny-side-up eggs. He doesn’t make everything from scratch, but when he does, our entire house goes into a food coma for approximately six hours. But I’m accident-prone, to say the least, ...

Whenever I’m working from home, I try to make extra sure that I take a break during the day and eat something for lunch. Unlike when you’re in the office, it can be so easy to get swept up in the busyness of a workday at home and just skip a real lunch entirely. A lunch break should be, in ...

I have never particularly been a ~traditional~ breakfast for dinner kind of gal. I know, I know, for some it’s a weekly highlight, but give me a bowl of pasta or roast chicken with veggies over eggs and bacon any day. I just never got the appeal, you know? Well, as it turns out, I’ve really been missing out, because ...

It’s Friday afternoon and 5pm strikes, and you know what that means: it’s time to bust out your favorite tunes and get your cocktail shakers and sprits ready to go! Despite being at home, it’s totally acceptable (and fun) to celebrate the weekend with a drink in hand and a charcuterie board if it makes your Friday night a bit ...

One of the silver linings about spending so much more time at home is being able to refine some of our basic skills that were maybe neglected in the past, such as cooking. I’ve been much more motivated to exercise creativity in the kitchen now that every meal is made at home, and I have to say, I’m enjoying it! ...

Three words, 18 letters. Say it, and I’m yours: “Welcome to Starbucks.” Of all of the things that I miss about normal life, camping out at Starbucks while catching up on work, sipping on my go-to coffee order, and asking a stranger to watch my belongings while I scurry off to the bathroom to pee is at the top of ...

If you’re one of the many (many) people who’ve tried their hand at baking bread lately, you may have noticed that yeast is now seemingly nowhere to be found. It seems as though everyone discovered how comforting bread baking can be, at the time many of us need it the most. As happy as I am for all of these ...
