Hammin’ It Up: An Ode to an American Classic

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor July 21, 2014

“Hamm’s tastes like freedom. Freedom to get a good buzz after work on a Tuesday evening when daylight lasted until 9-ish. Freedom to be constantly broke-all but still buy decent brie. Freedom to squander time on hopeless crushes and aimless solo hikes.”

Why Do I Own This? Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor June 3, 2014

“In the seven moves since our marriage, my husband and I have ditched a rice cooker, a panini press, a waffle iron, and a quasi-functional immersion blender. The ice cream maker is a frivolity that earns its keep.”

A Truly American Meal (or Two) at Mitsitam Cafe

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor May 15, 2014

“The National Museum of the American Indian, the Smithsonian’s newest addition in D.C., went (way way) back to the basics for their Mitsitam CafĂ©, and they did such a good job that it’s worth visiting for the food alone. Mitsitam, which translates to “Let’s Eat” in the native language of the Delaware and Piscataway people, reinvigorates its menu with ingredients from the available harvest every solstice, but there are so many options that if you’re in the area you’ll want to visit more frequently than that.”

Picky Fingers: Harvest Fruit Bake Finger Food

“For those of you struggling with your own mercurial bears, here’s a recipe that has been tried and true through some of Edward’s worst meal aversions. Depending on the age of your child, you might want to leave out some of the “harder” items such as rolled oats or raisins, but overall this recipe works for any of the finger food ages and can be altered at least a dozen ways.”

Unsustainable Morals: How Farming Ruined My Diet

“While my daughters were getting chubby from Eggos, I wanted to impress my fellow vegetarians with what I could do with local produce. It seemed taboo to admit what I fed my family in the privacy of our own kitchen, or that I suspected I wasn’t getting enough protein to fuel my 13-hour workdays.”

So Nice, They Named It Twice: A Wine Trip to Walla Walla

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor November 11, 2013

“It took me till this summer to visit the place people have been recommending for years: Walla Walla, a small town in rural southeast Washington state surrounded by miles of farmland (no, really: it is a four-hour drive to Boise, Seattle, or Portland). After finally making the trek, I can answer honestly: is it worth the long drive? Yes. Is it a town so nice it was worth being named twice (the local saying)? Yes.”
