Sacramento Improving Birth Rally

Sacramento Improving Birth Rally

Kellie Edson Giving birth to my first child in February drastically changed my views on childbirth and maternity care. You don’t really think about it until you are living it. You go out and buy all the books and do all the research.  You desperately ask your mom friends about their experiences.  And most of...

Hatch Green Chile Cheeseburgers

Aug 27, 2014

Last year during Hatch chile season, I posted a recipe for breakfast tacos using a roasted Hatch chile that I’d gotten from my local grocer.  Soon after, I received a comment on that post asking me if it was a “real Hatch chile”.  Well, I didn’t know.  The commenter was a nice person from The...

TK dinner ~ August 2014

This month I was told "you sure aren't very good at telling people No". I guess this might be a true statement since we had the biggest dinner yet! We usually have ten to twelve people for these dinners and they can pretty much fit around the dini...

Utility Boxes Transformed into Public Art

By Laura Braden Is it just me or has the amount of public art skyrocketed on the grid? From bright murals covering the sides of boring buildings to bike racks that look like the Tower Bridge, public art adds to the character and charm of Sacramento. My newest favorite project? The 31 utility boxes throughout the...

Fantasy Football Do’s and Dont’s

By Brianna Nathan The greatest time of the year is upon us: football season. If you’ve never participated in a fantasy football league before, make this your year!

Slow Roasted Garlicky Tomatoes

Aug 25, 2014

You didn’t think that tomato season was over did you?  I assure you it is not. Well, it almost is–at least at my house.  I learned a trick a long time ago that if you slow your watering down after the tomatoes were established and on the vines, then they end up more flavorful....

Happy Hour at Downtown & Vine

Lately, when I've wanted to go out with friends for drinks, I've discovered that it isn't that easy to find restaurants with vegan options on their happy hour menus. Tapa the World and Kasbah are vegan-friendly, as is Capital Dime, but most happy hour menus seem to have nothing for...

Well, it is about that time. We are soaking up the last bits of summer and are getting ready to send the kids back to school in a little over a week. I am having bittersweet emotions about the whole thing. We had one of the best summers imaginable. We moved to the Cape...
