From Food Editor Julia Bainbridge
When it comes that time of year to hunker down and wait out the storm (ie: February and March), most of us head to our kitchens in search of some serious comfort food. Who better than good friend and Yahoo! Food editor Julia Bainbridge to serve up culinary inspiration? The former senior web editor at Bon Appétit and all around bon vivant took our Chicken Soup Spice Set as a starting point, pairing each spice with a few of her favorite recipes for surviving winter. (And, what do you know, most of these wouldn’t be out of place at a summer picnic…)
In 2013, we invested considerable time and resources into revamping our website and improving our logistics. As always, our goal was to better your experience with our company. Our efforts became a true lesson in how changes don’t always come as immediately as planned – but we’re better off for having taken risks and broken new ground.
The founder of Tomboy Style on her everyday essentials.
Lizzie Garrett Mettler saddles up for a ride around her home base of L.A.
“My style is somewhere between East Coast, Mid-West and California – with preppy roots.” Lizzie Garrett Mettler’s sartorial sensibility may go broad, but it’s always grounded in the classics. Her blog and book Tomboy Style is a spirited take on women dressing for everyday adventure – from roughing it on a camping trip to biking around the neighborhood. A post on buffalo plaid features a vintage shot of a flaxen-haired fly fisherwoman sporting thigh high waders, while a Q&A profiles a Montana ski patroller and bee keeper who is equal parts “grace and grit.” Let’s hear it for the Tomboy.
December 6-7-8, 2013 in NYC
This weekend we’ll be setting up (temporary) shop for the Pop Up Flea NYC, a three-day market hosted by our friend A Continuous Lean. Come say hello, meet the team and get your hands on some of the products you might have been eyeing online.
Those who have been with us for a while know that we don’t mark down our products. Rather than engage in the hype that is Cyber Monday, we think there are better ways to show how much we value you.
Modern tailoring meets classic activewear in a one-two punch with our Todd Snyder x Champion collection. The 100% cotton sweatshirts and sweatpants have a relaxed fit that take you from weekends away to training at the gym. Both feature flat lock
stitching for extra comfort.

Joanne Hendricks Cookbooks whets the appetite of bibliophiles and food lovers alike.
A shelf at Joanne Hendricks Cookbooks.
In 1995, when Joanne Hendricks opened a cookbook store in the front room of the house where she and her family had lived for two decades, she wasn’t sure what to expect. Nor did she anticipate a specific clientele, other than “people curious to come into a small shop with a wooden door.”
In Conversation With Top Chef Cristina Ceccatelli & Canning Expert Marisa McClellan
Preservation Society: Two pros share their canning and jamming secrets with us.
With harvest season kicking off and a bounty of fall produce filling the farmers’ markets, now is the time to try your hand at preserving – or add a new recipe to your arsenal. Here to help: Cristina Ceccatelli, an Italian chef based in Ketchum, Idaho, whose homemade jams are a staple at her popular 16-table restaurant Cristina’s. Marisa McClellan writes about the art of canning on her website Food in Jars and released her cookbook of the same name last year. (We’ve been fans since making her mouth-puckeringly tasty kumquat marmalade.)
