The Bangkok Blush (a color-changing cocktail)

Some recipes start from an idea and just magically come together when the ingredients are in my hands.

Block Printed Beer Labels

Block Printed Beer Labels I don’t want you to get the wrong impression– I’m definitely not a master at either homebrewing or printmaking. But, I am pretty darn good at figuring out how to make food and beverages look nice. And after relegating my homebrews to plain brown bottles, (yawn) I decided it was time...

Homemade Veggie Burgers

Homemade Veggie Burgers

Veggie burgers don’t always have to be seen as a second-rate meat substitute; at their best they have a wholesome, not-too-filling-but-still-satisfying vegetable-y goodness. From a culinary perspective, veggie burgers are just a savory vegetable croquette topped with all of the delicious trimmings of a burger. The freezer section of your local grocery probably has its...

So… *ahem* it’s been a little while. I don’t like to write too much about myself (food is much more interesting, I promise), but it would seem strange to just pick up again after so long without any acknowledgment. So here it is, an acknowledgment that yes, I have not written in blog form for...
