Ginger Lemon Kombucha

Hi from Cape Cod! I've been here all week with the Chicory-sters as we kayak, swim, grill steaks, and drink just enough beers after dinner. The amount that makes a wholesome game of charades ever so slightly more fun, but never weird. They're a good group.

Tahini Cereal Treats

Hello, earthlings! Guess what this week was? My birthday!!! Yes, the whole week. Just kidding. I realized I kind of overcompensated with talking about my birthday ahead of time and then people did 1,000 nice things for me rather than the 5 to 10 that I kind of anticipated. I got free fancy dinners, gifts, macarons, a babka, a bacon egg and cheese, mad drinks at da club (a bar or two), and a surprise party that I had to cancel cause all the previous fun knocked me down and I caught a lil flu!

Chicken Yakitori

Today was a magical day that I spent with my dear friends, the Sameshima family! We (Ok, everyone except me because despite the driver's license that burns a hole in my wallet begging to be used for it's one true calling, I don't drive... well.) drove down to Maryland to eat some deeeeelish, fresh blue crabs. And while I grew up crackin' lobsters and cooking clams from the Long Island Sound, this was my first go at breaking open crabs with my bare hands and a wooden mallet.

Turkey Kofta

How's your week, everybody!? Mine's going pretty well on account of last night I went to the US Open and tasted the ~honey deuce~ (New Yorkers who ride the subway will understand my excitement around this drink). I also danced the weekend away and ate McDonald's at 3AM. 

Callicoon, NY - August 2016

Last weekend, I was lolling the day away (please read as loll-ing as in the real meaning of loll, but if you read it as LOL-ing, I think that's actually OK too) in Callicoon, NY! Also, I tagged #calicoon wrong one too many time on Instagram. Learn from my mistakes. It's CaLlicoon, with two L's.

Stir-Fried Pork Belly and Kimchi (Jaeyook Bokkeum - 제육 볶음)

Whew, just got back from a weekend in the Catskills with the fam-fam, aka lots of swimming and frisbee and tubing down the Delaware River not unlike George Washington. (But kind of a lot unlike George Washington.) The funnest part was that the whole time we were literally floating on the border between Pennsylvania and New York. It made me feel like some kind of teleporting explorer who's in two places at once.

Speculoos Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Luckily I own a Corgi and a Labrador, otherwise I wouldn't have moved from this spot on the couch for the full day. But I had to walk those two nincompoops, so I wasn't completely sedentary. Can you blame me, though? New York "feels like" 106 degrees and that's approximately the temperature at which I like hot tubs, so now imagine walking around in that with clothing on. Does Santa Claus have a son who's single and ready to let me marry him for an easy in to North Pole citizenship?

Mexican Tomatillo Scrambled Eggs

I bought overalls!!!!! They're black and have a lil flare at the bottom. I thought the problem would be figuring out which shoes to wear, but you know what? It's the shirt. It can't be too long cause then it gets all scrunched. It can't be a crew neck cause then I look like a kindergartener. Do you guys wear overalls? What do you do?
