I’ve been having a blast here lately! Really. Just so much fun. I hope you’re enjoying things as much as I am and I wanted to be sure send lots of love and thanks for coming here to visit me. I’m also quite an Instagrammer so if you’re looking for more pics of food, bubbly and the occasional shot of shoes and house stuff, find me there too @natirasu.


(Happy weekend to you and don’t forget about mom on Sunday.)

A decadent mid-week lunch & dessert & bubbly. You can see by my robot strength grip on the fork that I mean business with the Gateau Basque at Sitka  & Spruce. (A huge and well-deserved congratulations is in order for Chef Matt Dillon and his new Best Chef Northwest James Beard award. There is no one in Seattle more deserving of this title.)


A no-recipe spring potato salad. This was the highlight of my day off. Seriously, no recipe needed just boil 6 potatoes, toss in olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, scallion, spring onion, cornichons, capers, 2 boiled eggs, and 3 strips of bacon. (I think my guy also snuck some bacon fat into the olive oil, vinegar mixture. Do it!) My advice: don’t be shy with the olive oil and vinegar.


A bit of bookshelf rearranging. Spring cleaning is underway but I always, somehow, get lost in my bookshelf. I could (and do) spend hours on it. (‘The Goodness of Garlic’ from Foodie Friend Brian, and my very favorite mug from @christinengo!)

I know, it’s dangerous for me too! I usually wait until it goes on sale…that helps a little bit, but sometimes it’s hard to wait.
