You remember that scene in Snow White when she gets dressed by chirping birds and all is lovely and perfect? That is not how we wake up. We're more of the hit the snooze button 90 times, get us a vat of pour-over coffee, and skip breakfast crowd. Which is a shame because breakfast should be a cheery start to the day. So, we're bringing a sunny disposition to breakfast with this Mango Coconut Berry Breakfast Lassi.
After all my travels and illness lately, I need a clean slate and I'm betting it'll come in the form of this Seared Salmon and Cilantro-Cashew Whole Grain Bowl. Because this is what I eat when theres no hope. Ok, that doesn't sound too promising. Lets start over, shall we? This Seared Salmon an...
Bright, warm, tangy, and sweet, this citrus salad is for ye who sought out Warhead candies as children. It's an elegant play between tartness and sweetness that I absolutely love paired with crunchy cacao nibs. It can be made with any combination of citrus fruits (although you'd be wise to avoid lemon/lime)!
For me, a reset meal has to be three things: healthy, delicious, and (most importantly) easy! This roasted sweet potato salad is my go-to fall meal. It’s made from just a few simple ingredients - perfect for a cosy dinner - be sure to save the leftovers for lunch!
Look, tortilla soup is like chicken soup in that there are as many versions as there are abuelitas. What I know is that I love mine blended rather than soupy -- even if it makes some of my traditionalist friends crinkle their nose in disapproval -- and I like to mix it up, garnishing with avocado, radishes, scallions, and, of course, lots and lots of crisp tortilla strips.
Fig & Oliveis 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.
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. That's why we always try to work in a side dish that's just so simple and straightforward it can mix and match with pretty much anything. These Roasted Beets are all that and get bonus points for being make ahead (and tasting better the longer they sit)!
The perfect side dish is like an amazing supporting actress — bold enough to be memorable but knows enough restraint that it doesn't steal the spotlight. And, when entertaining, that means the dish is largely make ahead and versatile enough to be served with a roast or a salad. This roast carrot dish is just that — a puree with all the flavors — lemon, pistachio, coriander — we love best with carrots.
This fall I've finally fallen for overnight oats and I've been topping it with the season's fruit from nutmeg-dusted pears to these cinnamon-sprinkled persimmons. And I'll keep it up because as the holiday shopping, wrapping, decking, and cooking begin, it's all the more reason to start the day off right.
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.
Look, sickness happens. And it always seems even more so around the holidays. Some swear by garlic toast, others by gargling salt water, but we're obsessed with electrolyte waters. This recipe is one of the simplest electrolyte waters made with coconut, citrus, and maple syrup.
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. Not that I often listen to surfers for nutritional advice but I sought out acai and started making smoothies and acai bowls on a regular basis and go re...
