  This quick lunch of zucchini noodles was part of a fridge clean out before leaving for Santa Cruz last weekend. I gave Brock the directions over the phone and he spiralized the noodles AND made the sauce. That just shows you how easy this is to pull together. I came home just in time to plate […]

  Tomato season is in full swing and when they are this sweet, a simple preparation is all you need. I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to enjoy them right now. I’m roasting them low and slow, which just cooks them enough to concentrate their flavors. The dash of za’atar (a middle eastern spice blend […]

Make all the musical fruit jokes you want, but I think a pot of slow cooked beans is a sexy, soulful thang. The insides are all creamy and the pot broth liquor is savory and velvety, rich. Because a good thing can’t be rushed, cook them slow and low. This makes for a satisfying and effortless […]

I credit social media for sparking this 3-day/long weekend trip to Humboldt. After gawking and gushing over every single sunset, redwood forest and beach photo in my friend Julie’s Instagram feed, we finally pulled the trigger and got to see some of her feed in real life. Here are some photos from the amazing trip. The photos […]

I’m not a vegan or a raw foodist, but I have  dabbled in raw vegan cooking. I even recipe tested this book back in the day. So when Meredith Baird invited me to attend her Raw Vegan Detox at Matthew Kenney Culinary, I immediately said yes. I mean, you obviously can’t/don’t say no to learning from a raw […]

The other day my friend Dave asked me what I would choose for my last meal if I could choose anything. As somebody who thinks about food a lot, it still stumped me.
