When I was flipping through the internet for cocktail inspiration, I was taken with the Greyhound, a miraculously simple cocktail consisting of only gin and grapefruit juice. Something ripe for riffing on.
“Once in college I ate popcorn for seven straight meals. That’s over two days of nothing but popcorn.”
I’m not crying because I’m cutting onions. I’m crying because I’m thinking about how beautiful onions are.
After a long day of existing, nothing makes me feel better than a warm oversized bowl of warm noods. Maybe you feel the same? Well have I got a list for you.
Fuck elegance and effort; sometimes you just want to hunker down and watch Crazy Ex-Girlfriend with a sugar drink.
Start the year off right — by learning how to make a classic margarita recipe.
There’s nothing like a bunch of dazzling desserts to distract you from the hellscape that is our collective future!
I’m ready to take back the heritage that is so rightfully ours, and one way I’m going to do that is by homebrewing my own goddamn beer. With my girlfriend. And her cat. Please join us.
It’s almost Christmas! Still doesn’t feel like it, though. But maybe that’s because we’re not eating enough homemade seasonal candy, y’know?
This one goes out to all my vegetarian and vegan cuties.
I cook with so much garlic that I’m pretty sure my hands perpetually carry its scent, which I should probably apologize to my girlfriend for. But I will never stop doubling and tripling the amount of garlic a recipe calls for, because I like to live my truth.
Practically perfect in every way.
Cozy boozy cider for you and your date person or your best friend or your mom or whoever IT’S PROPER FALL COCKTAIL TIME!
Get your adulting on by preparing a fancy-looking and beginner-level five-course meal for your next date night or dinner party.
The best honey in the world comes from this one roadside honey stand in PEI that works on the honour system (spelled with a “u” because Canada). It tastes like fresh ocean sunshine. It tastes like happiness. Other honey is okay too I guess.
You’ll find ciders, lattes, hot chocolate and boozy hot drinks in here! Sip them during your autumn adventures.
Make one of these for your sweetie, your mom, your vegan/gluten free gal pal, or your cat (don’t do that), and celebrate the loving embrace of autumn!
The Boulevardier originated in Europe during the great bartender exodus caused by Prohibition. Definitely NOT a Negroni with bourbon instead of gin.
Savory pies (and tarts and galettes, too) that will keep you warm and happy and full even as chilly weather and crispy leaves descend from above.
Zucchini is bad. Zucchini, in fact, is the worst vegetable. Uncooked zucchini exists in a vacuum of flavor. Cooked zucchini, on the other hand, tastes like what I imagine hot turtle water tastes like. How you can go from nothing to unholy with the mere introduction of heat is a testament to zucchini’s darkness. Zucchini is the cantaloupe of vegetables. Zucchini is the vegetable you pair with yellow squash and serve in vats to large groups of people you disrespect. Zucchini is a miserable cucumber.
