Five weeks.
He's here. On February 17 at 4:23 AM via an emergency C-section, our son Murdo Scott MacKenzie II was born. He had a rough start into this world, entering two and a half weeks early with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and spending his first nine...

On joining the club, and chicken tinola.
I knew that becoming a mother would be like joining a club of sorts, with an initiation of birthing a human and a common lifetime goal of not killing the kid, but I don't think I knew the extent of it until I started creating a baby registry. You guys, pare...

That sounds like an excellent warming dish for this time of year. Great flavors!

The past 14 weeks.
School has started, which means Murdo and I wake up around the same time, silently wishing for double sinks in the bathroom as we stumble around slowly, bleary-eyed, through the early mornings. It also means longer commutes, and shorter days, and a constant...

Weekend in Austin #keepleslieweird
We drove through winding dirt roads, 10 of us singing along to the Spice Girls and Ace of Base and TLC, stopping at wineries to enjoy the views of Texas wine country. We bought a couple of bottles at one stop, and Di told the infamous story of Leslie's trip...

Slow cooker sausage and potatoes, and January.
Last week, in the check-out line at Trader Joe's, the guy bagging my groceries said casually, "Kind of cold out there, huh?" "It's a little bit chilly," I joked. "What's your favorite hot beverage?" the cashier asked. "Whiskey," I replied. "Warms you from t...

A new year, and cabbage and ginger soup.
Happy new year! I know it's been over three months since I've written here, but since it's a new year and all, I'm hoping to be able to just jump back in and start fresh. And I brought soup! A soup that is perfect for if you a) have nothing in your fridge b...

35 weeks.
This will probably be my last post before the baby is born, and in true "my-mind-is-a-jumbled-mess-right-now" form, I'm writing this post in the style of a bulleted brain dump. It's snowing right now. We had a blizzard earlier this week, forcing me to stay ...

4 Years. With Pork Meatball Banh Mi and a Gender Reveal.
Murdo and I got married four years ago today, on a private lake in Michigan. After we said our vows, we celebrated in a big white tent with 150 of our closest friends and family. Today, where that big white tent once stood, there is a house. A house that Mu...

Breakfast Rice Bowls
If you scroll through my Instagram feed , among the photos of cats and feet and plants and selfies, you will find pictures of eggs. Fried eggs, on top of stuff. Because Fried Eggs on Top of Stuff is possibly my favorite meal ever. Wondering what to eat for ...

30.
I said goodbye to my twenties with a feast that started off with beer, fried pickles, and burgers . Then there were olives, lamb meatballs, roasted bone marrow with bacon jam on toast, seared scallops and foie gras, fried chicken roulade with biscuits, lemo...

Asian-style Ground Beef with Vegetables.
I've been thinking about this dish for a while, ever since a craving for lumpia hit but I didn't want to go to the trouble of rolling and frying the eggrolls. I wanted to make something that had the flavor and filling of Filipino eggrolls, but also similar ...
