It’s starting to become that “in between” weather in Seattle. It’s not cold enough for a winter coat anymore, but it’s still too cool to go jacket-less. It’s the type of weather that makes spring style inspiration hard to come by.
Luckily when this weather comes rolling in, I turn to one of my trusted fashion uniforms. I grab some of my favorite PNW made and vintage finds and style it into this “borrowed from the boys” look.
A few weekends ago my boyfriend and I went to Winthrop, WA to celebrate our anniversary. We planned our winter getaway around the Winthrop Balloon Festival because I’d bought him a hot air balloon ride for our anniversary last year (which we never took because I’m an idiot – more on this later).
Winthrop is in central Washington’s Methow Valley, which is home to the largest network of cross-country ski trails in the country. Plus, it’s only a 45-minute drive from Lake Chelan, a great wine region. These two facts, plus the fact that the Winthrop Balloon Festival is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen, make Wintrop the perfect location for a winter getaway in Washington state.
I’ve been craving one pan meals recently. Between travel, fun foodie events, and trying to fit in some exercise, I’m completely exhausted at the end of the day and want something easy for dinner.
While I was recipe testing for Valentine’s Day, I ended up playing around with chocolate and chiles. This easy one pan chicken spawned from that. It features all good-for-you goodies like orange, sweet potato, cilantro, and of course, chocolate.
If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m completely obsessed with steak tartare. I’m a complete savage when I go to restaurants. If they have this popular raw meat dish, I will be ordering it.
I started to realize that not all steak tartares are created equal. So I created a Trello board with a running list of all my favorites (I know, I’m a nerd). Rather than let that list go to waste, I thought I’d share with you where to find the best steak tartare in Seattle.
A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I took a road trip from Seattle to Idaho in order to check out the skiing at Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain. Neither of us had driven across Washington state or gone to these resorts, so we were excited to spend a long weekend exploring a new area of the Pacific Northwest.
Here are pictures from our trip and my recommendations for the top things to eat, drink, and do while at Silver Mountain and Schweitzer Mountain Resorts.
