Southwestern Kale Salad Recipe

Southwestern Kale Salad Recipe

Instagram continues to perplex me. I’m always surprised that my photos with the worst lighting during late night dinner prep are the ones that get some of the most positive responses and pleads for recipes. Sometimes a shocking amount more than any other (in my option, better looking) photos I take. I never think that...
Quick Fix: Kimchi Vegetables & Soba Noodles

Quick Fix: Kimchi Vegetables & Soba Noodles

Okay. Can we be real? There are times…lots of times… when you’re just plain staggered, starving and frozen pizza-less. Those nights when even the most culinary organized are exuhusted and looking for a tub of dolmas to nosh on instead of dinner. We’ve all been there. Now it’s just time to come clean…all ten fingers style....
Summer Bulgur Salad With Mixed Veg, Mint & Champagne Vinaigrette

Summer Bulgur Salad With Mixed Veg, Mint & Champagne Vinaigrette

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: BULGUR AIN’T VULGAR! It’s delicious, it’s good for your ticker and it mixes brilliantly with a wide array of ingredients. A cold bulgur salad has become my spring and summer staple. I simply swap out the herb (mint, turmeric, cilantro), the veg (squashes, beans, peas, greens),...

Chilled Curry Squash Soup w/ Cumin Shrimp & Orange Ginger Avocado Beet Salad

It’s official…DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s Summertime is playing on my internal sound system. Loud. The weather has been incredible, the days are getting longer and even pasty little me is sprouting some sunshine freckle love. My weekly menu is also starting to see change. Smaller, lighter meals and heavy doses of fruit...
Style Servings: Pink Ombré Somen Noodles

Style Servings: Pink Ombré Somen Noodles

Two Words: Ombre. Obsessed. Be it pink gradated garments, submerged  sunnies or these trendy tresses. I am in absolute crush mode with fabulously fading pink hearts in my eyes. Maybe I’m just holding a tight grip onto my Jem and the Holograms days, but I declare heck to the heck yes on this dip dye business....
Brunch-Timing: Crab Cake Benedict

Brunch-Timing: Crab Cake Benedict

If I could, I would have brunch on the daily.  I’m talking about patio sitting on a sun-soaked Sunday kind of action. I’m also talking about bubble sipping filled with laughter and sharing something preferably with an egg on it. You know, the weekend works. For me, brunch is more than a meal… it’s a magical time capsule of...
Kumquat & Snap Pea Bulgur Salad w/ Curry Vinaigrette

Kumquat & Snap Pea Bulgur Salad w/ Curry Vinaigrette

  Dearest Bulgur,   Where have you bee all my life?! You are a super duper grain and my heart pounds for you, and pounds in good health (so much fiber, so much protein, so much Vitamin B)! I can’t believe how good you are for me and yet don’t taste like it. Your texture...
Happy Grilled Cheese Day!

Happy Grilled Cheese Day!

You best believe I took part in celebrating National Grilled Cheese Day this afternoon! Where this version isn’t as gooey as your more traditional cheese sammies, it is still worthy of your lunch time-ing. Dinner, even… It’s a stud like that. Roast up any veg you might have in the fridge, grill them up for...
Weekend Bites: Soft Served & Fresh Starts

Weekend Bites: Soft Served & Fresh Starts

Well hello there! Yes, I realize I’ve been a little quiet around these parts. Travel to weddings and travel to family and well all kinds of lovely things have taken me away from head quarters. All happy times maaayyybe with the exception of mouth surgery that happened a few days ago. Let’s just say I’m...
Kale & White Bean Soup: Goodbye Winter

Kale & White Bean Soup: Goodbye Winter

With just three short days left until the official start of Spring, Winter has decided to knock on my door and track muddy footprints all over my newly cleaned wood floor. He’s blown into my living room leaving a trail of soggy leaves, dampness and the undeniable need for an afghan, boxed brownies and bad...
Show Love With Grub: Moroccan Eggs

Show Love With Grub: Moroccan Eggs

I recently treated a special someone to a birthday stay-cation which kicked off with one tasty stay at home brunch. These Moroccan eggs are…unreal. I’m also starting to become quite obsessed with the idea of one pot wonders and am ready to further my inspiration with the latest addition to our cookbook collection. I mean,...
Side Show: Watermelon Radish Salad

Side Show: Watermelon Radish Salad

Put me in front of a watermelon and I will show it who’s boss. I love them, it’s a summer staple. Who says you can’t enjoy a little bit of that warm weather vibrancy in the middle of winter? Okay, this is totally sounding like a stretch, I hear you. Even though it’s a mild...
