This section currently features any food-related post on the site, from eateries to travel-inspired recipes.

I'm currently working on adding more recipes to the site. Check back soon for more!


I try to make a connection, however loosely, between recipes and places or destinations. Here's the most recent:

Instant Pot Clams Bordelaise

This recipe was inspired by many things: digging clams in the Pacific Northwest and a recipe from the Frugal Gourmet cookbook, the mussels I ate in a restaurant on Loch Linnhe in Scotland (I haven't quite approached their amazingness), French Clams Bordelaise. Fortunately steaming shellfish with wine is easy; it's now made even easier by the Instant Pot!
