acai bowls

It’s mid-July and finally warm enough in the Pacific Northwest to enjoy acai bowls. I experimented with this recipe about six months ago, and why on earth I decided to make frozen snacks in the dead of winter I’ll never know. Maybe it’s because I had warmer climates on the mind. Nevertheless, I was able […]

sweet potato and zucchini pancakes with smoked salmon and crème fraîche

I’m cheating a little bit – this isn’t exactly a new recipe. It is a long needed remake of my sweet potato and zucchini latkes, which were delicious but never held together as much as I wanted. Reworking this recipe over and over in quarantine had me asking the question, “at what point does a […]

vegan tropical smoothie

I’ll be honest, what I really want to eat right now is a vat of macaroni and cheese, not a smoothie. But for myself and many others, January has evolved to be just as much of a mental reset as it is a dietary cleanse. I acknowledge that diet culture is damaging and body shaming […]

spiced buttermilk waffles with maple mascarpone whipped cream

I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that these waffles are merely a vessel for the maple mascarpone whipped cream – but that is simply not the case. Waffles are the queens of brunch food, and I don’t need to explain to you how much better they taste with some fall spices. And if it feels […]

The Adeline: a celebratory champagne cocktail

On August 26th, Patrick and I welcomed (a couple weeks early) our daughter Adeline into the world! We couldn’t be happier or more sleep deprived or more confused about what day of the week it is (though I hear that today is Labor Day, and from now onward I’m going to think of it in […]

bruschetta with heirloom tomato, mozzarella, and herbs

It should be a crime to waste tomatoes during their peak season – so if you find yourself in possession of fresh tomatoes nearing overripe-ness, promise me you’ll do something about it. I know this recipe calls for heirloom tomatoes but really any decent variety will work, as long as they are fresh and ripe. […]

cold brew + cold brew concoctions

Cold brew is the coffee drink of summer. Or, in our house, the year round coffee drink of choice. To be fair, I love my stovetop espresso, but Patrick and I are the crazy people who will drink iced cold brew even in the dead of winter. We’ve been single handedly funding Trader Joes through our […]

mocha smoothie + announcement

We’ve all experienced rushed or, dare I say, frantic mornings where time to make both coffee and breakfast is non-existent. For Patrick and I, coffee usually wins out in that situation. Fortunately, there are ways to have both in one fell swoop, like a smoothie, though I still recommend eating “real food” for breakfast whenever […]

simple avocado citrus salad

By the end (or nearing end) of winter I’ve usually established a craving for fresh summer fruit, but berries and nectarines will evade me a few months more. I recently rekindled my love for oranges after being sick with influenza- I used to think of oranges as a bit mundane, their purpose being for juicing […]

vegan green smoothie

Happy New Year! Whether you are eating differently because of a New Year’s resolution or just want to add extra greens into your diet, I’m hoping this recipe will fit nicely into your smoothie repertoire. I used to think that vegetable based smoothies were boring and reminiscent of grass, but I couldn’t have been more […]
