Chile Margarita with Paprika Salt

Chile Margarita with Paprika Salt

It’s still a shock to us that half the year is almost over and that we’re entering the end of June. Still, what is more of a shock? That 4th of July is next week and we’re in June mode. Our abrupt reminder was last night when someone ignited some illegal fireworks in our neighborhood […]

Blood Orange Gin and Tonic

Blood Orange Gin and Tonic

We swear it wasn’t intentional to be missing from the blog for five weeks and return with booze. In fact, we had this recipe ready to share about seven weeks ago but a few things got in the way and blog life kinda came to a screeching halt. And secondly, we missed you all and […]

Meyer Lemon Magic Custard Cake for Breakfast

The Winter Olympics are here and we’re trying our hardest to sneak in as much spectator time as possible, on television, that is. There’s so much that we love about the Olympics, but it’s the personal stories that make watching the events so special. We all have our dreams to pursue and to see someone […]

Blood Orange Buttermilk Pound Cake

Blood Orange Buttermilk Pound Cake

It’s always around this time of year that we begin swimming in citrus and every meal (and drink!) has some splash of fragrant juice. You can call it a garden obsession, but we’re not far from being finished. Last week we planted another (our third) blood orange tree and it wasn’t in-celebration to grow more, […]

Blood Orange Margarita with Bitters

Blood Orange Margarita with Bitters

Just as Diane has her prop collecting obsession, I have my own vice. Well, more like a double vice since most toss drinking into that classification. I am mildly bedeviled by making cocktails. There is something exquisitely alluring in what has become a combination of ritual and swagger. A little James Bond, a dash of […]

Fizzy Blueberry Meyer Lemonade

Fizzy Blueberry Meyer Lemonade

I’m a berry boy. I love my berries. Unfortunately, Southern California doesn’t so much, or at least so I thought. Strawberries being the huge exception (they are amazing down here), I always thought that growing berries in our garden would be  a futile task. I’m talking blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries. They were so easy […]

Margarita Recipe and The Magic Formula – Bitters

Margarita Recipe and The Magic Formula – Bitters

Call me suckered, hoodwinked, or duped. I believe in magic potions. A man hawking small bottles of potion, proclaiming outlandish results. Out of curiosity, I skeptically try the potion. A few shakes in a cocktail drink. A cocktail I am very familiar with, but with a mere few dashes of this elixir it became something […]

A Delicious Kalamansi Lime Beverage

A Delicious Kalamansi Lime Beverage

“Delicious Beverage.” One of those idiosyncratic sayings in our household. Always said with a snickering smile and a bit of love. And its use is reserved for those drinks we really love. Scene 1. Every once in a while, all the neighbors in our cul-de-sac pull the grills into the circle and have a little […]

Homemade Kumquat Marmalade with Brie Cheese and Blue Chair Jam Cookbook Giveaway

I don’t like brie cheese. It’s boring. There. I said it, I meant it, and I’m ok with you despising me for it. But before you send off that nasty email, I must clarify, I’m not talking about the real deal, raw milk, wheels of wonder that are true Brie cheeses.  Cheeses from milk so […]
