Tri-ed & True — Kumquat Lemonade

My deliciously easy kumquat lemonade recipe.

My love/obsession with lemonade has been well-documented (see Exhibit A & Exhibit B), so I’m always trying to develop new recipes based around that. My parents have a kumquat tree in their backyard, and kumquat trees are always bursting with fruit every season (on average about 300 kumquats for an medium tree). So this recipe […] Read more…

Tri-ed & True — Tri-ple Berry Lemonade

Triple Berry Lemonade

If anyone spends any time with me it won’t take them long to figure out that my favorite drink of all time is lemonade (iced coffee is a close second). I love it, it’s tart, it’s delicious with a million different combinations and it’s what I dream about when I’m feeling parched. Now when I […] Read more…

Fool Proof Pas-Tri Crust

This is my basic pastry crust that I use for everything. It takes a little bit of time because you have to fridge it in between steps but since you don’t have to let any of the ingredients come to room temperature you don’t have to plan ahead that far in advance in order to […] Read more…

In-Tri-guing — The Power of No

All forms of rejection can be terrible. When someone you’re interested in doesn’t feel the same way about you. When a company keeps their job posting online after you’ve already been rejected for the position. The fact of the matter is that, sometimes there are things in life that are out of your control. No […] Read more…

Tri-ple Picks — My 3 favorite things this week

Lupicia Tea Packets. Lupicia has been like Teavanna’s edgy sister. Same quality ingredients but the flavors just POP 10x more. Not that I could ever fully replace coffee with tea. But I’ve been drinking it more and more as I’ve gotten older. If you TFFs have never tried loose-leaf steeping, trust me, it’ll change your […] Read more…

Tri-spectful — I hate rude people

Friend: “Oh she just gives off the kind of vibe, but once you get to know her she’s cool.” Me: “No thanks, I’ve seen enough.” People who are inherently rude are a nightmare. I don’t know how the phenomenon started, but I don’t like it. I’m talking about snarky sarcasm everywhere you look. How it’s […] Read more…

Tri-ple Picks — My 3 Favorite Things This Week

Alpine Strawberries — These Frenchie jewels are my current-favorite variety of strawberry. They’re tiny in size but HUMUNGOUS in flavor. This type of strawberry is extremely fragrant and very sweet. They’re the perfect size for topping my mini cupcakes* and garnishing desserts. I like to eat these completely unadorned, so if you’re making jam or […] Read more…

Tri-ple Picks — My 3 Favorite Things this week

These are my three favorite things this week.

Cuties — Clementines and satsumas come in different brands and shapes all the time. But I specifically recommend you get Cuties. The knock off brands all suck and end up being dry for half the batch IMO and worst of all, end up having a TON of seeds. Ugh (sorry Halos!) So when you pick […] Read more…
