I love a cocktail as much as anyone. Well, maybe not quite as much as Jenn … but I sure do enjoy them. Sometimes, it’s great fun to experiment — to try new ingredients and find just the right mix. via GIPHY But other times, I just want simplicity. I want a nice, cold drink without having to haul out a bunch of bottles or needing to measure out lots of ingredients. And that’s where these potables come into play. They’re perfect for summer because they’re as tasty as they are simple! Austin Cocktails Austin Cocktails is a certified women-owned…

If I had the opportunity to offer up my number one go-to healthy meal, right now, I think I’d have to go with the Buddha Bowl (or power bowl, or food bowl … it goes by many names). It’s endlessly versatile — just pick your favorite healthy ingredients, roast or saute if necessary, and mix ’em up as you see fit. And it’s really easy to feed a diverse crowd if you have a nice variety and allow everyone to serve themselves. Plus, if you have fresh greens at the ready, you can essentially create a Big Ass Salad! While…

Want to learn how to embrace fresh flavors like a wine country chef? With the new cookbook, Season, from wine country chefs Justin Wangler and Tracey Shepos Cenami, you can do just that. And today, we’re sharing an amazingly flavorful salad recipe from them. Strawberry and rhubarb — not just for pie! This Strawberry-Rhubarb Salad with Pistachios and Goat Cheese recipe takes inspiration from the structured look of a Cobb salad — it just ditches the bacon, avocado, and bleu cheese. Instead, it gets that look with plated greens and other ingredients arranged in rows on top. The dressing, made…

Maybe you haven’t had a chance to visit wine country, so you don’t even know which winery you’d want to receive a regular shipment from. Perhaps you’re interested in a wider variety than a single winery tends to offer. Or you might have really specific tastes,…

CSAs are awesome. (Not sure what a CSA is? Check out our primer here.) And if you ever wished your CSA included more protein — specifically sustainable fish that you can feel really good about eating — then we have the perfect idea for you: a Community Supported Fishery (CSF)! I honestly didn’t know about this whole concept until Sitka Salmon Shares sent me a box to try, and, well, it was love at first open. Filled with wild-caught fish from Southeast Alaska (harvested using hook-and-line methods to minimize negative ecological impact) that’s blast-frozen (to -50 degrees F at peak…
