The best cocktails in Seattle. Some of them come with a view, like this one at the Smith Tower Observatory.

If you’ve read any of my recent travel guides, you know I love wine. But I also love me a good cocktail. There are a ton of craft cocktail places in Seattle with really excellent bar programs. I’ve been to enough that I’ve started to identify the best places to go and, most importantly, the best drinks to order.

I’m always sharing with my friends what drinks to seek out, but it’s time I share it with everyone else. Here is the list of some of my favorite bars and the best cocktails in Seattle you must try.

How can a dish that photographs so terribly taste so good? It’s life questions like these that I ask myself when I think about this Italian chicken recipe I made. Seriously…this is one of those dishes that, when I ate it, I said, “Hot damn, this might be one of the best dishes I’ve ever made.”

Yet…it looks so…plain. But trust me, this Italian chicken recipe is anything but plain. It’s lemony, herbaceous, and super easy to make. So if you care more about food that tastes good than looks pretty, this recipe is for you.

(And whatever, I decided this is more “rustic” than plain. 🙂 )

An easy DIY necklace you can make for Mothers Day! Or if you need other gift ideas, try make it for a birthday or bridesmaid gift.

Any time I go to Discovery Park or Golden Gardens in Seattle, I scour the sand looking for interesting stones, shells, or sea glass. I never really had a plan for these. I just liked seeing what I could find on any give trip to one of these gorgeous Seattle beaches.

But last year I had the idea to turn these treasures into Christmas presents for the ladies in my family. They ended up being a huge hit, so with Mother’s Day coming up I wanted to share this easy DIY necklace tutorial with you. All you need are sea glass or stones, malleable craft wire, scissors, and tweezers!

This easy steak recipe features a rosemary, mustard, and jam sauce and a crunchy, zesty panko crust. It is so easy and perfect for holidays.

I’m always looking for an easy steak recipe. It’s not for meal planning purposes or inspiration. Rather, I’m reading up on cooking methods and looking for themes in how to cook the perfect steak. I do this because…confession…I haven’t always been the best at cooking steak indoors.

I used to avoid cooking steak because it always turned out more gray than caramelized brown. It’s taken a lot of practice, but I’m finally comfortable making steak on the stove. What was once an “eat-it-when-others-make-it” situation is now an “eat-whenever-the-mood-strikes” situation. And the mood struck hard a few weeks ago when I was thinking about recipes I could potentially make for Easter dinner.

Knowing I still have a rosemary plant going strong from last summer (I know, WTF, right?!), I developed this recipe. It’s super easy and flavorful, with herbaceous and sweet flavors filling up your home and palate. Read on for the recipe, tips on cooking steak, and wine pairing suggestions.
