I have transcended into ice cream nirvana. I can without a doubt say that after 10 trials at home, I have created the creamiest, fool-proof, homemade strawberry ice cream. If you’ve been around here for a while you may know that I have a full-on love affair with Tillamook Strawberry Ice Cream, so if you
I used to have rug commitment issues but now I have art commitment issues. In my early days of living on my own, I could have a room completely furnished (and art hung on the walls) and still be lacking a rug. I just never met a rug that spoke to me (within my budget).

These puff pastry carrots are not carrots at all but actually stuffed with herby, garlicky cheese, and asparagus for a fun twist on a simple appetizer. It is truly a three-ingredient recipe that will delight your family this Easter and
I relish in the predictability of pairing champagne with strawberries.

This week kicks off the Spring One Room Challenge which means I’ve got a fire lit under my butt to finally add some panache to the Parlor. As you may remember from this post, we renovated our 110-year-old condo in 2019 and have been slowly filling in the nooks and crannies (like the dry bar
I love it when food experiments turn out successful. I’ve long loved the beautiful violet hue of Empress gin and was wondering if I could make it at home with the addition of this tea flower. I have been on a “tint everything purple” kick, and it just so happens that yes, you can make
