Up your brunch game with a Caramelized Apple Dutch Baby Pancake | #brunch #apple

After a Saturday afternoon spent apple picking, I knew exactly how my Sunday morning would unfold. The New York Times, a mug of my favorite new (to me) coffee and a Caramelized Apple Dutch Baby Pancake. It’s not often I have indulgent breakfasts like this. But, every so often it’s necessary. I hope you think […]

Shredded Kale and Pear Salad with Maple Tahini Dressing

Fall is here, so it’s time to add a little oomph to our salads. This kale salad, which you might recognize from the other day, is pretty much a big pile of some of my most favorite things tossed together. Shredded kale, which I will love always and forever. Red Anjou pears because they’re so pretty. […]

Maple Glazed Buttermilk Donuts

September 12, 2014
Lightly spiced buttermilk donuts coated with sweet maple glaze are the perfect way to ease into fall mornings!  | #donuts #maple

My dream for this weekend is to sleep in (which in my world, is like 7:30), then curl up in bed with a mug of coffee, a Maple Glazed Buttermilk Donut and my book. Actually, I better take 2 donuts just to be safe. I’m really into this book, so who knows when I’ll re-emerge. […]

Pasta with Homemade Creamy Tomato Sauce (Vegan)

September 9, 2014
Not much beats a big plate of pasta with Homemade (Vegan) Creamy Tomato Sauce...especially when you can get it on the table in 30 minutes! |

  I remember when I discovered that I could substitute applesauce for oil in making muffins. It pretty much felt like I struck gold. I was also a little baffled as to why everyone wasn’t already doing this. I mean, it seemed like a total win-win. Until I took one bite of those muffins. Uh, […]

Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry

September 2, 2014
This simple vegan and gluten free Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry is fresh, delicious and you

Say hello to my new favorite 20-minute dinner – Vegan Sweet Pepper and Mushroom Soba Noodle Stir Fry. The alternate title was here’s-everything-in-my-fridge-that-needs-to-get-eaten-before-we-go-away-for-the-long-weekend-stir-fry. Just didn’t have the same ring as the actual title. A little too long, perhaps? Yea, I kinda thought so too. Last week was an awkward week in terms of cooking. After […]

Heirloom Tomato Panzanella Salad

August 14, 2014
Panzanella Salad is a perfect way to enjoy heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil! |

One of my favorite things about August is when heirloom tomatoes, in their rainbow of colors and scarred bodies, take over the farmers market. The sticker shock knocks the wind out of me with every purchase. But, that first bite always makes me forget about the ridiculous amount of cash I just spent on tomatoes. […]

Avocado Toast with Spicy Black Bean Burger Strips

August 11, 2014

One of the highlights of my weekend was taking advantage of Summer Streets – think car-free running down Park Avenue all the way to the Brooklyn Bridge. It also happened to be my first true long run since I ran the Big Sur Marathon Relay, oh about three and a half months ago. Oops. To celebrate, […]

Just three basic ingredients (one of them is water!) stand between you and this perfectly sweet Cantaloupe Sorbet!| #sorbet

It’s been kinda quiet in these parts this week.  Sorry about that! I’ve been a little sidetracked with a project – otherwise known as, putting the FINAL edits on the Freekeh eCookbook!  Also writing the introduction (which I’ve been putting off for months) and coming up with a name.  Yea, so this thing is really happening.  And […]

Tropical Smoothie

Question….at any given time, how many different types of milk products do you guys have in the fridge? You know, like, dairy milk, half & half, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk. I’m sure I’m forgetting a few, but you get my point. I’m just trying to gauge where I stand on the spectrum of […]
