The 2016 Gift Guide

December 12, 2016

“NO MORE GIFT GUIDES”, shouted my friend Shauna on Facebook, who apparently was channeling the spirit of the Grinch. I cringed, because I had yet to publish my annual gift guide here on Eat the Love. But in the end, I decided she’s not the boss of me. Plus my gift guide is awesome. Because […]

Marbled, Swirled, and Layered Launch Party (and more upcoming book signing events!)

November 14, 2016

A book signing event at Omnivore Books made me realize that we are collectively better when we gather together and share with each other. I hadn’t really thought about the election results when I had scheduled my launch party. Omnivore Books, a cookbook bookstore here in San Francisco, was crazy busy with Fall book releases […]

Not Bolognese Sauce

October 24, 2016

This savory sauce is one of my go to recipes for when I am craving pasta. Just don’t call it Bolognese sauce. Everyone will get upset with you! There are something things I try not to talk about on the internet. Abortion. Religion. Politics (definitely no politics, especially in a presidential election year…though if you […]

Photo Essay: McMinnville, Oregon

September 26, 2016

This past summer we stayed at McMinnville, Oregon, an impossibly cute town in the Oregon Wine Country. We tasted wine and ate too much. This past summer AJ and I took to the road and wound our way from San Francisco through the Pacific Northwest. We eventually ended up in Vancouver to take a cruise […]

Sponsored Post: Pumpkin Butter “Pop-Tarts”

September 19, 2016

These fun to make (and eat) Pumpkin Butter “Pop-Tarts” are the perfect Autumnal treat for breakfast or just a snack! I’m not ready for Fall. Mostly because it has been unreasonably cold here in San Francisco all Summer long and I want that sort of over-the-top oppressive heat that feels like a blanket you can’t […]

Photo Essay: Oregon’s Historic Columbia River Highway (and a little more)

September 12, 2016

Oregon is sort of magical wonderland. Though I often visit Portland (though sadly I’ll be missing this year’s Feast Portland) I rarely have a chance to explore the rest of the state. So when AJ and I were looking at places to visit this past summer, the Pacific Northwest was high on our list. Coordinating […]

BBQ Shrimp and Grits

August 29, 2016

BBQ Shrimp and Grits are an easy meal to make. Using stone-ground grits and cooking them slow and low brings out their savory flavor! When AJ is away I eat awful. Box mac and cheese, instant ramen, and a lot of carry out, specifically of the cheap Chinese food type. I’m not sure why I […]

Peach and Blackberry Pie

August 22, 2016

A Midwest Summer experience: learning to fire a gun, baking a peach and blackberry pie and how food brings us all together. “If you at any point feel uncomfortable, you should yell out ‘CEASE FIRE’ and everyone will put their guns down.” Said the man in the instruction video at the shooting range. We were […]
