Hot Lava! A Doorless Helicopter Tour of Kilauea Volcano, Big Island, Hawaii

This morning I wake up to the news that Kīlauea Volcano on Big Island is erupting. Towns are being evacuated, videos show bright red lava spilling onto highways, grassy areas, and the governor is requesting national emergency status. My immediate reaction is to admire how pretty the lava looks, followed quickly by, Holy Hell, we were right there!

Eat This Page: Horiatiki, a Classic Greek Salad

This Horiatiki, a classic Greek salad is crisp, zesty, and absolutely delicious with a very quick and easy olive oil based vinaigrette.

Greek Cooking Class at Ethos in New York City!

One of these days we’ll make a bucket list. And when we do, you can be sure Greece is on it. Sona is infatuated with the lush blue domes and stark white architecture of Santorini, contrasted with the light blue of the sky and sea. In 2010, we were less than 24 hours away from clicking the buy button on flights to Athens, when we definitively found out Sona was pregnant. A happy moment. But also a moment that changed…

Photo Friday: Gino and Carlo in San Francisco!

Ayyy, look who it is everyone, Gino and Carlo! One of our favorite neighborhoods in San Francisco is North Beach. Many people flock to this area enticed by its nightlife, with its bars and Italian restaurants – a natural fit as we’re clearly a family who likes to party, as the photo above illustrates. We decided to come here with my parents and Kavya over Christmas a few years ago because we wanted to have a fun little adventure without…
