Roasted beet and citrus salad with mustard vinaigrette


Oh hi there. Long time no see. I’ve been spending my days and nights wedding planning (and bridal showering and bacheloretting – yup, it’s a verb now). Not gonna lie, I’ve probably had time to pop in and say hi, but I’ve just been too exhausted to think about what’d I say. How I’d explain [continue reading...]

Almond crusted baked goat cheese medallions


My elementary school soul mate got married few weeks ago. The kind of soul mate that pretends to taste the broccoli you’re eating just by holding your hand. You know, the kind that will spend all recess walking in circles with you around the roots of the giant oak tree in the school yard secretly passing [continue reading...]

Cherry Garcia salad & a blogiversary GIVEAWAY! [Giveaway Closed]


One of the coolest people I know turned another year older last week. From the looks of it though, you’d never be able to tell my mama was aging. If we were sitting around a fire pit roasting marshmallows, all the smoke would go toward her since, as my family says, smoke follows beauty. Unless, [continue reading...]

Healthy spring salad


My trek into the snow-capped mountains of Canada for a weekend of Skiing marks the beginning of a month of travel in which I’ll cover just over 14,000 miles in sum. That’s a lot of time in the air. Needless to say, expect my culinary exploits to become less frequent as I make these various [continue reading...]

Arugula and shaved fennel salad with oranges and honey cider vinaigrette


Up until now, I’d only ever eaten raw fennel in salads out at restaurants. I loved it, but I’d just never prepared it myself. I rarely cook fennel either, for that matter. In fact, you might recall the eggplant & fennel gratin I set out to bake a couple of weeks back; I accidentally used a leek [continue reading...]

Perfect potluck Chinese cabbage salad


Salads that stay sturdy as leftovers astound me. Not only do they make for a quick and healthy weekday lunch, but they’re also perfect for potlucks. There’s nothing more pitiful than a bowl of wilted greens amidst a spread of delicious dishes. This cabbage salad lasts for a week without losing its appeal. With Lucas [continue reading...]

Lemony kale, pear, and pepitas salad


At first glance, it appears that I cook with kale all the time. This assumption isn’t all that accurate since I’ve only cooked with it a total of three times – they just all happen to be within the past month. What is true is that I’ve been trying to become more aware of what’s in [continue reading...]

Playing with food: Beet orange salad


I went to Sur La Table to find a heart-shaped cookie cutter today and would you believe it – they’re sold out! They were even totally all out of the sets that included a heart cookie cutter. I figured that if I’m going to be making cutesy Valentine’s Day food, I should invest $1 in [continue reading...]
