Wherein I use the term ‘macking’ to talk about people lovin’ on your for your cooking skills.


Simple Experiments

Sometimes adapting recipes is an overachiever game — how many changes can I make so this recipe become uniquely mine?
This often involves a lot of failed experiments asking the way.

Sweet ’16

2015 did a lot to shape views and goals and outlooks on a lot of things. Heading into 2016, I’m coming out of a clustermess of a final three months of the last year trying to remember who I am and who I want to be.

Fish Virgin (No More)

I was over-chickened and feeling experimental. I’ve got a food blog now, aren’t you supposed to try new things and share your screw ups for all to see? Well, this definitely wasn’t a screw up. As someone who’s not into fishy-fish, I found it really tasty.
