If you have your mom, call her. Ask her everything you ever wanted to know.

Write it down.

We had wings.

I tried to make them in my new Instant Pot this time.

I normally make them like this.

The instant pot cooked them fast but they made them so incredibly tender the meat mostly fell off the bone. I gotta futz with the settings and figure it out. Maybe they’ll just be something I make in the oven (or fry!)

This is why I had one of the walls in our bedroom painted black.

The afternoon light is magical.

We went to visit cats at the Marin Humane Society on our way home from a birthday party. This cat was named Schuster and he was the BIGGEST LOVE BUG. A little floppy kitty.

Friday nacho night! We re-watched the movie The Ice Storm.

Christina Ricci, Katie Holmes & Elijah Wood were so young! I was in the mood to watch a movie that took place in the winter. I forgot about the ending. Wow.

Sorry. So many cat photos.

I use photography + cat time as a break in between working & doing house chores.

Both keep me sane.

If you’re into cat photos, my cats have their own instagram account now:

@kitchenkatz

It’s 100% cat pictures.

    These Everyday Life posts always shine, Tracy. You have such a gift for finding light and then capturing it in your photos. Cooper is one lucky boy to have you as his Mom. Looks like you had a tasty week of dinners! We have dinner and a show every night with our cat, too!

    I bookmarked the restaurant with the chicken salad, but I was wondering if you’d ever tried to recreate it?

    I love these weekly posts, by the way. Somehow even your messy kitchen pictures are so much more interesting and beautiful than my messy kitchen! Haha

    Thanks to your Instagram Stories, I made the pulled pork in my Instant Pot this week. So Good! I just took a screenshot of the video you had of the cookbook page- so smart, I surprised myself! What cookbook was that from? I generally stick with Nom Nom Paleo recipes but man, was that pulled pork delicious. That sauce – YUM

    I love the kitchen pictures of dinner/meals in progress. And loved the tree on your hike too. Thanks for sharing!

    My dogs have a hashtag #cahndogs and they have a Facebook page called Martin G Cahn. Your cats are so cute!

  • Lia

    After all these years, this is still my favourite part of the internet, every single week!

  • Rachel

    Thank you so much for the Lemon Ginger elixir! I have been making it to deal with my cold & sore throat and it ‘s totally delicious! Those little $5.00 bottles from the health food store are a thing of the past!

  • Nienk.

    Lovely advise over the phone, wish we would get those calls everyday

  • Raheel

    How do you like your instapot? It’ seems like everyone is raving about it but I cook a lot and don’t have a slow cooker or pressure cooker at the moment. So I’m wondering if I need it?
