How We Shot Our Bountiful Cookbook Cover & Outtakes

How We Shot Our Bountiful Cookbook Cover & Outtakes

The last few weeks have been quite adventurous. Between our work shoots and trip to Orlando’s Disneyworld for Food Blog Forum we’ve braved Space Mountain and shooting highly reflective glassware in the same week. If you’ve ever experienced either one of those, you’ll know that they both pose their own set of challenges. More on […]

The Blue Bottle Craft of Coffee Cookbook Video & Vanilla Saffron “Snickerdoodles”

Nearly anyone familiar with the San Fransisco coffee scene knows of Blue Bottle Coffee. It began as a minuscule operation by self-confessed coffee lunatic James Freeman, and then after the word started spreading it quickly turned into a cult favorite.  Now nestled throughout unique crannies in California and New York, Blue Bottle has roasted and […]

Dark Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies with Holiday Stencils

For the first time in my life I think I had a chocolate hangover. Maybe it was eating three additional pieces of See’s candy before I went to bed that threw me over the edge. I’m the savory-girl. The girl that hovers over the holiday buffet table where the cheesy dips are displayed and quietly […]

Sweet potato croquettes and taking risks on Thanksgiving

Sweet potato croquettes and taking risks on Thanksgiving

It’s during this time of year that we all start to get a little high on the blood pressure when it comes to planning the Thanksgiving meal. I know of friends that plan weeks ahead of time and channel their inner Martha Stewart for hosting inspiration. Others will make things on-the-fly and decide the day […]

Coffee Toffee from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook

Diane would like to apologize in advance for anything I am about to say. She says I’m a coffee snob. I don’t know whether to respond with a “Duh!” or a “Phbbttt!”- or however you spell sticking your tongue out. After all, she did first meet me in a coffee house almost 17 years ago. […]

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 […]
