Flashback: The Islands

It’s the season for all of my favorite things: farmer’s markets, Twilight concerts, sundresses, and vacations. I love them all and spend the other nine months of every year daydreaming about the joys of summer. I have an arsenal of new recipes to try as produce begins to appear at market booths, my Thursdays are […]

Pok Pok Week: Honey Sauteed Watermelon

I have two very serious, guilt-ridden addictions: Vine and watermelon. Six seconds of video that guarantees a laugh 99% of the time? Yep, that’s for me.

Weekday Dinner on the Go: Ortiz Tuna Toasts

I often imagine that I will, someday, cook my family a full meal every evening. Someday. Certainly not today.

Occasionally, when writing for Caputo’s, I choose to highlight recipes I turn to after long nights researching different scotch whiskies and their pairings for a little, much needed, levity. This is not that kind of recipe. This is the recipe you need if you are preparing not recovering from such a night of research.This is […]

Evan’s Malt of the Moment: Ardbeg 10 year

Part of really, truly learning to love something for what it is lies in overcoming biases and preconceptions that you never really knew you had. This was true for me as I grew into a connoisseur of Scotch Whisky. You see, I had always enjoyed the sweet honey of the Speyside’s, the floral heather of […]

Cheese Flight, What’s That?

“Cheese Flight” is a term that may not be recognizable (yet) in our community, but hopefully I can shed some light on what’s going on here. It’s the same general concept as wine flights.
