In Season :: Sesame & Shiitake Soba Noodles

Jeanine here, and today I’m sharing my go-to meal of the moment: cold soba. I made a big bowl of this as a side dish with dinner last week, and then ate it for lunch the next two days in a row. And when I ran out, I made it again. It not only keeps […]

Tuesday Tastings :: Arugula & Blood Orange Salad

While going through photos from this Oscar Party photo shoot, I realized I’d never shared the recipe for the incredibly delicious arugula, blood orange & almond salad that we served to guests as a first course. (We collaborated with Word of Mouth on this one, and they created the most perfect dinner party menu full of […]

Bottoms Up :: Oscar Night Smash

Yesterday we capped off our office Valentine’s party by (why not?) testing recipes for awards show-worthy vodka cocktails.

The Perfect Bite :: Linzer Cookies

Jess here, and suffice it to say, I do not take Valentine’s Day lightly. Today I’m dressed head-to-toe in red and pink and more than ready to get my sugar high on. No matter where you stand on this heart-filled holiday, Valentine’s Day is here and we might as well embrace it… and if you’re like me, […]

In Season :: Blood Orange & Bourbon

Does anyone else crave citrus in the winter like I do? Jeanine here, and I’ve been on a citrus kick for weeks now… first in salads, then main dishes and now, in perhaps my favorite food group of all, the cocktail. I just love how the blood oranges add natural sweetness, and also a pop of color. We drink […]

10 Best Juice Brews

In last week’s 10 Best, we rounded up some of our favorite products and appliances for the makings of a healthy home. Slide 3 pictured a Breville Juice Fountain, and while it totally fit in with the other items we spotlighted, we thought a little more credit was due to the world of juicing. Now, if […]
