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!

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.

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...

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...

Cinnamon Walnut Date Shake Smoothie

It's an unspoken rule among us Californians that, when in Palm Springs, a date shake is a must. Tons of dates are grown in the desert so someone sometime got the genius idea of swirling dates and spices into a vanilla milkshake and the rest is history. But, let's be real, drinking a date shake on the regular is not a good habit and doesn't mix well with trying to hang out poolside so I came up with this Cinnamon Walnut Date Shake Smoothie.

Roasted Cilantro Chile Lime Spatchcock Chicken

This recipe is the opposite of ambitious — it's not lazy or uninspired, it's just resourcefulness at its best. This Cilantro Chile Lime Chicken came about because I wanted a super simple, quick-ish way to roast a whole chicken with flavors that could go with all my favorite foods.

Roasted Red Pepper Romesco Dip

 Inspired by the classic romesco sauce—roasted peppers, Marcona almonds, paprika, and garlic—this dip’s only problem is how addictive it is. Like any respectable spread, you quickly find yourself (and, let's be honest, I'm speaking from first hand experience here) using it any and everywhere, fro...
