Brown Butter Blondies

Brown Butter Blondies from

Can we talk about what a small, small world we live in? On Thursday morning, I boarded a plane back to San Francisco for my very last spring break. As the flight attendant walked down the aisle, I did a double take. Of all the flights I could have taken, I happened to be on […]

National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day!

Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal from

Do you know what today is? It’s National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! It also happens to be the day of my birth and celebration of my 25 years on this planet, but I think peanut butter is something that’s really worth celebrating. As a peanut butter lover, I can’t think of any better way to […]

Farmers Fishers Bakers Brunch


A few months ago, some of my best gal pals and I gathered to brunch at the newly-opened Farmers Fishers Bakers in Georgetown. At the time we dined there, the restaurant had only been open for a weeks. The buzz about FFB brunch had obviously caught on quickly, because almost every table was packed! After […]

Washington DC Chef’s Table: Beer Mustard Butter


You know how they say it’s all about who you know in life? Well, since moving to DC, that’s rung totally true. The people I’ve met have opened many a door. This door in particular was opened by my good friend (and name twin), Rachel! When she saw a post on Facebook about a new […]

Biscoff Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip + Pomegranate Cookies

Biscoff Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip and Pomegranate Cookies // Studio Cuisine

DC had its first snow of the season today, and my California blood is just not prepared for this weather. I know, other places are much colder, but I’m a weather wimp and can’t handle it. My solution? Stay cooped up inside my apartment, drink coffee, and eat these cookies. If you haven’t jumped on […]

Winter Salad & Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Winter Salad and Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette | Studio Cuisine

After a few decadent recipes in a row, I figure I owe you something a bit healthier. This simple salad uses roasted butternut squash, pomegranate seeds, apples, goat cheese, and walnuts mixed in with a 50/50 blend of mixed greens and spinach. If that’s a little too healthy for your taste, might I recommend replacing […]

Lavender Lemon Bars

Lavender Lemon Bars |

I know what you’re thinking. Lavender? In a lemon bar? I’m here to report that this is one flavor combination that just works. The small amount of lavender in the crust of these lemon bars is barely noticeable, but it adds a certain layer of complexity that is unmatched. I can’t really describe it, I […]

Salted Caramel Pecans

Salted Caramel Pecans | Studio Cuisine

I’m officially back in the nation’s capital after a very relaxing month-long vacation back in sunny rainy California. All those notions you had about fabulous California weather? They’re oh-so-wrong, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area. What does this have to do with pecans? Well, not much, except that photos are exponentially more difficult to […]

Macaroni and Cheese: 2 Ways

Macaroni and Cheese: 2 Ways

With the final stages of our kitchen remodel still in process, my good friend Joanne was kind enough to lend my sister and I her kitchen a few weeks ago. She only had one request: macaroni and cheese. If you’re one of the people who made health-related resolutions in the new year, I apologize in […]

I know just about every blogger on the planet is doing one of these roundups, but I can’t think of any better way to end 2012. 2012 was the year I started this little blog, and it’s been a great one. I am so happy to have joined a fantastic community of food bloggers, because […]
