These are full of scribbled notes, neon “make me next” tabs, oil drips, crinkled pages and most of all, recipes that I adore. They’ve brought immense amounts of joy into my life by way of conversations over dinner and memories made while cooking with people I love, and they all contribute to making me a better, happier cook day by day.
Beltane is the old Gaelic festival that heralds the beginning of Spring, a “thank fuck the ice is going to stop!” all-night party.
Truly, if you’re not a morning person and/or are susceptible to hanger, I suggest you get on the muffin train.
This 420, live your best life by re-living a day in the life of the main character of Smiley Face, the pot movie for those of us who aren’t men!
I wanted something sweet, dense and so deeply full of chocolate that it would stand up to the most epic hormonal rage I could summon. This fulfilled all my needs. I love to eat this warm with a cup of coffee. I love to eat this cold with strawberries and whipped cream topped with mint. I love to eat this. I bet you will too.
I want no baker left behind, so today’s recipe is another oven-free gem! It’s a cherry-apple crisp made entirely on the stovetop in one skillet.
Someone has figured out how to make vegan poached eggs???
Come have a farewell drink with me, friends.
This one takes some planning and patience but it’s so worth it!
I decided to give my oven a break this week and create another recipe anywhere there is only a microwave to be found.
“These cookies take two bowls, bake in 20 minutes, have the least messy batter I’ve ever met in my life, and based on my solo test run can absolutely be assembled in bed.”
In many ways, Girl Scout cookies are like the lesbians and bisexual women you’ll date in your life: A diverse collection of personalities that are all excellent in their own ways but also will follow you in your life forever, popping up on the regular and making you question your how you lived without them. And also with them.
Now keep in mind, a Sour is simply a cocktail that combines sour citrus (lemon or lime) with some sort of sugary-sweet thing (in this case, simple syrup). It’s one of those three-ingredient cocktails and it requires no bitters whatsoever, so this is a perfect one to memorize and have on hand.
You don’t have to break the bank to add to the bar.
If you make these this month I promise they will bring love into your life, whether it’s self-love for making a dozen of them all for you, or the love and adoration of others that you feed them to.
It’s okay if your end result isn’t completely bare and minimal and perfect; the most important thing is feeling in control of the spaces you create.
Eat all the citrus and fight off all your colds this winter!!
Bonus points if you listen to The Cranberries while you make these bars.
Going out with friends or my wife or just, like, leaving my apartment at all? Out of the question! Nope nope nope! This month, folks came to me instead of freezing our butts off in a cold bar somewhere and I made them Cardamom-Orange Martinis.
It’s time to do your favorite thing: focus on your feelings!
