The photo above was taken at one of my “secret” spots in Magnuson Park which has become a favorite cycling destination in Seattle. I have wanted to write about outdoor cycling for a while now, and must say that my experience of getting into it over the past year would not have happened if not for the Pandemic.
There’s only so much you can say to someone to create a picture of what you’re describing. while I think there is great value in the written word, I also want to show you what I’m talking about. If pictures are worth…

Ribollita is a testament to cooking with sustainability in mind… ♻️
There are countless examples of dishes like this in just about every culture that has ever existed on our planet. The poor are forced to create meals out of what little they had, and over time, with ingenuity, these dishes arise like a phoenix from the ashes.

Ribollita is one of my all-time favorite versatile vegetable stews. I was introduced to it while working in the casual fine dining Italian…
Most Green Smoothie Recipes Fail 🤷🏽♀️
They’re either too sweet, not sweet enough, or worse… watery. After spending years working professionally as a craft cocktail bartender, I’m probably hyper-aware of how important proportions are to creating a balanced drink.

This was not the first recipe I planned to share about cooking with cannabis, however, I had a debt that needed to be paid.
I promised my friend Nikolaos that I would make him a batch of edible cookies… a long time ago. Overcome with guilt, I asked what his favorite kind of cookie was, he replied “white chocolate chip macadamia nut.”
My eyes glazed over. This was my favorite cookie as a kid growing up! Yes, it’s ridiculously rich, pleasantly sweet… nostalgic, and so… so… good.
