Citrus Scallops En Papillote With Herb Emulsion

Fig & Olive is one of those restaurants that just makes you feel you’re in the South of France, even if you're in the midst of Manhattan. We credit it to Laurent whose love for simple elegant French food is infectious. Recently, they published a long overdue cookbook and we got to raise a glass to celebrate with them for the occasion. The dish that stood out to me the most that night was this Citrus Scallops En Papillote With Herb Emulsion so we had to share the recipe.

Roasted Beets With Pistachios And Thyme

It's easy to go overboard during the holidays. To make too much food, with too many flavors, and then it all gets to be just too much.

These Roasted Beets are all that and get bonus points for being make ahead (and tasting better the longer they sit)!

Squash Tacos with Toasted Garlic Chipotle Peanut Salsa

On a taco-eating trip to Baja California, I became completely obsesed with the tostadas at La Guerrerense. And every tostada was even better when topped with their salsa; it's a toasted garlic and peanut salsa that was hot, smoky, crunchy —  pretty much it was instant love. Since then, I reverse engineered that salsa and put it on everything from grilled chicken to seafood and, most recently, these squash tacos.

Tropical Coconut Chia Cacao Acai Bowl

I first heard about acai bowls when pro surfer Rob Machado talked them up as his healthy breakfast that he'd discovered while on tour in Brazil.

Slow-Roasted Tomato and Cilantro-Cashew Picnic Sandwich

I'm a romantic at heart so I have these swoon-worthy visions of summertime picnics. At the seaside, at sunset, or at a music performance, there's something about the perfect picnic that just makes my culinary heart pitter patter.
