Black Bean, Toasted Quinoa, and Feta Cheese Tacos

I've had my car since I was 16, so there are some awesome artifacts that pop up every once in a while. Things I've found most recently include: a Hello Kitty mechanical pencil, a 90s-era scrunchie, that Bob Marley album I had on repeat in high school, lots of change, an old Tortilla chip that I s...

Chilled Soba Noodles with Lemon-Ginger Dressing

Chilled soba noodle salads are so satisfying yet light that I turn to them often. This recipe is really a launch pad because it’s the basis from which we make all sorts of soba variations. If you don’t have wasabi on hand, we leave it out and just adjust the other flavors accordingly. If there’s a ton of watercress, it gets swirled in with the noodles. And during the winter months, we’ll throw roasted diced squash with some tofu; so, rifle through your pantry and make this your own — no matter what it’ll be pretty easy and plenty tasty.

Kale, Chicken, and Quinoa Salad with Mint-Yogurt Dressing

My body talks to me – not in that, “I see dead people” way but in a “oh, if I listen, I can learn” sort of way. And I’m starting to listen. Lately, it’s been talking about healthy food. Perhaps because the more time I’m on the road, the less often I eat homemade meals (or meals, period), but, no ...

Miso Chicken Noodle Soup

Have you guys noticed? Like a bat out of hell, everyone has been affected by that oh-so gnarly stomach bug. Somehow, despite flights and meetings and every other chance to catch it, I've stayed healthy (so far. It could be the Zinc or the loads of sleep I've forced upon myself I like to think it's actually because of this soup. Chicken noodle soup can be so blah and boring so it's been a few years now that I've made this miso version instead and now I just can't imagine my chicken soup any other way!

Mozzarella, Beet, and Walnut Dukkah Flatbreads

Dukkah is a North African condiment made from all sorts of flavorful goodness like nuts, spices, and the like. Traditionally, you'd see it with olive oil as an easy dipping sauce but here we've added it to vegetarian flatbreads. I also love using dukkah as a gluten free coating for salmon or chic...

Indian Kati Rolls with Curried Cauliflower

In India there is a constant reminder of how old, rich, and amazing the Indian culture really is. Just when you think you knew when something was created or invented, some stat is thrown at you about how the Indians invented it and you're totally baffled. So, when my friend told me Indians invented burritos, I just started chuckling and then he handed me a kati roll. While it's not quite a burrito, it's just as delicious and addictive, which is fine by me.

Asian Chicken Salad with Creamy Mustard Miso Dressing

I was going to call this the “Ladies Who Lunch” salad but that seemed way too chichi for these parts. Why the name? Because I don’t get to do lunch with friends nearly enough but a few weeks ago I had a lunch date with Catherine McCord (yes, the lady behind the wonderful Weelicious) and like the ...

Smoked Paprika and Oregano Spatchcock Chicken

After visiting 10 cities in the last 3 months, it's been countless trips to the airport, and lots of missed or late night meals, I wasn’t truly aware of how much I needed a home cooked meal. That is until I got just enough time at home to make a classic roast chicken. The roast chicken is so simu...

Carrot Harissa Hummus

Consider yourself warned: you will need to make a lot of this Carrot Harissa Hummus because it goes fast. Maybe that's because it's a twist on hummus so it's familiar but just a little bit different. Or perhaps because it's a one-size-fits-all appetizer since it's vegetarian, vegan, dairy-, and g...
