Review: The Bistro at Shuksan
I am not a golfer. It’s not that golf doesn’t appeal to me; I just could never quite summon the gumption to take a “swing” at it. Therefore, the Bistro at Shuksan might never have appeared on my radar, if it weren’t for writing this review. Now, I believe it should be on everybody’s. The entrance at Bistro at Shuksan boasts high ceilings and classic white tablecloth settings. Beyond the doorway lies a spacious deck overlooking the sprawling golf course,…

Holiday Inspiration For Your Home
What’s the first thing that jumps to mind when you think of holiday decor? For many of us, the visuals are similar: A red and green color palette, string lights (either multicolored or white), stockings, and of course the classic tree. Though timeless, this formula doesn’t leave much room for personal flair. We believe that Christmas decorations should never be one-size-fits-all. Elegant or rustic, understated or lavish, classic or contemporary, and…

12 Turkey Leftovers
If turkey is on the menu this holiday season, you might find yourself saddled with more leftovers than you know what to do with. In fact, I’m convinced it’s impossible not to end up with (at least) a day’s worth of extra meat. So what’s the best way to use up your bird in the days following Thanksgiving or Christmas?

Located at the crossroads of Chuckanut Drive and Bow Hill Road stands Cob + Cork, a quaint, small-town restaurant “inspired by the harvest of local soil and water.” After opening its doors in August of this year, Cob + Cork has quickly become a community gem thanks to the work of owners Lisa and Terry Thomson.

The Gift of Good Spirits
Infused spirits are the best kind of holiday gift: Simple, homemade, and delicious. You can whip them up in batches for everyone on your Christmas list, but we wouldn’t blame you if you kept a jar (or two) as a present to yourself as well. Best of all, they couldn’t be easier to put together. All you need are Mason jars, ingredients of choice, and a little bit of patience.
Bringing the Farmers Market to Your Doorstep
With our lives becoming busier every day, the relentless question of “what’s for dinner” is, for many of us, a headache. If you’re like me, that question is answered by a trip to the grocery store in search of something quick and easy. But quick and easy isn’t always what’s best for our health, or the health of the planet. In 2011, Joy Rubey observed this…

When I think of holiday punches, there is a lot to choose from. Traditional Moscow mules are simple and fun, while fruit-based rum and gin punches are also popular. Other options for Thanksgiving and the holiday season include hot ciders (rum, cinnamon schnapps, cider with your choice of spices) as well as mulled wines. One recipe I enjoy for New Year’s is the Sweet…
