Finding Your Inner Ina – Michelle’s Take on Beef Bourguignon

I firmly believe that we all need a little bit of Ina Garten (AKA the Barefoot Contessa) in our lives. I’ve always been a huge fan of the TV show host and prolific cookbook author. While her recipes are delicious enough to stand on their own, she has managed to use the medium of cooking to create a unique, authentic, and universally-loved brand. She makes … Continue reading Finding Your Inner Ina – Michelle’s Take on Beef Bourguignon

Welcoming Fall

Even though it seems like our years are built around anticipating summer, when school is out, work slows down, and most people plan vacations, I’d argue that the beginning of fall brings the most joy. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as that first purchase of pumpkin spice-flavored something, sip of Oktoberfest beer, and the crisp autumnal feeling in the air during the transition of summer … Continue reading Welcoming Fall

Florence & Chianti – European Vacation Pt. 2

ZURICH & COMO – EUROPEAN VACATION PT. 1

Written by Michelle. It’s impossible to travel to Europe during peak season and not at times feel like you’re navigating through a crowded amusement park full of (mostly) American tourists – whining kids in strollers, baseball caps, and selfie sticks galore. Of course many tourist attractions are crowded for good reason, but I’d argue that taking a photo in front of some historic statue is … Continue reading ZURICH & COMO – EUROPEAN VACATION PT. 1

BETWEEN STATIONS X THE REGRETTES

Our close friends, The Regrettes, are a rock n’ roll group from L.A. who are taking the scene by storm in the U.S. and abroad. Having just finished an epic European headline tour, The Regrettes are currently on tour in the States, which includes several stops at major music festivals flooding your Instagram feed. I asked them a few food-related questions while tour is hot … Continue reading BETWEEN STATIONS X THE REGRETTES

BETWEEN STATIONS X MARC FINN

Marc Finn is the drummer of well-known so-cal surf punk hip-shakin’ band The Frights. I’ve shared many moments with him all over the country while on tour. He is an avid Celtics fan (for some weird reason) and he occasionally writes for The Hard Times. I’ve asked him a few questions about his band’s relationship with food on the road.  BS: Who has the best taste … Continue reading BETWEEN STATIONS X MARC FINN
