Pea Guacamole and Seared Halloumi Soft Tacos

Do you guys know my dear friend, Sarah Copeland? If I could have someone cook for me everyday, it’d likely be Sarah with her easy and contemporary farm-to-table cooking that’s more provocative than precious. Her latest cookbook, Feast Cookbook is on point and, to show you what I mean, I'm sharing...

Oil Packed-Tuna, Avocado, White Bean, and Arugula Salad

In case you haven't noticed, salad is my jam. I mean, sometimes I feel like this blog should be called "Salt & Salad" because I'm all about them and try to eat one salad a day. And though I've shared a fair share of salads with you, I've somehow completely overlooked sharing this Tuna, White ...

Date Coconut Cacao Nib Truffles

These Date Coconut Cacao Nib Truffles first made it in my kitchen because I wanted a healthy but filling on-the-go snack. But now I eat them as a healthier take on chocoalte truffles, hence the name. I like to roll the truffles in cocoa powder to give it a more adult taste and make them look a bi...

Pomegranate, Persimmon, and Pistachio Wild Rice Salad

Consider this like the Little Black Dress of salads -- it works in any occasion from a formal dinner party to a light lunch. This wild rice salad came from very humble beginnings (aka me cleaning out the fridge) and then I started sharing it with everyone around me: first for a casual lunch with ...

Spinach Salad With Spiced-Walnut Salmon And Cilantro-Mint Dressing

I tell myself salad rights all wrongs. That it's the great dietary equalizer. That no matter how many baby bites I ate, plane food I consumed hopping back-and-forth across the country in 48 hours, or how much BBQ I ate in Alabama, salad will fix it. But it needs to be a serious salad like this Sp...

Red Pepper Sambal Muhammara Dip

I know, I know, it’s getting a little awkward so let’s talk about the elephant in the room. I’ve got a thing for roasted red peppers in a major way and this Red Pepper Sambal Muhammara Dip is why. I’m not sure why but muhammara has taken backseat to hummus in terms of Middle Eastern dips and I th...

Thai Shrimp Tostadas

We're of the belief that tostadas make anything better -- the salty, crunchy goodness means you can raise your favorite foods up high on a sort-of flavor pedestal. And in the realm of tostada hierarchy, this Thai shrimp tostada is major. And I should know because I pretty much never met a tostada...

Brothy Garlic Soup with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes and Poached Eggs

Summer colds are kind of the worst. I mean, it's not like I ever really want to voluntarily sign up for a cold but there's something about being feverish and sniffly when it's hot outside that just doesn't work for me. 

My Italian grandmother believes anything can be cured with a huge dose of gar...

Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho

It seems I brought the heat with me back from Cuba — at least to Los Angeles. For the past 48 hours, it’s been blazing hot here with temperatures north of 90°F and it’s made me so lazy I can barely lift a finger, never mind cook. Enter this Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho from Tess Master’s cookbook, The Blender Girl

Sake Miso Mussels with Wilted Greens

 I love to get away. If there’s a trip to be had, I can be packed and ready with suitcase in hand within minutes. Like that one time my coworker casually invited on a last minute trip to Europe and showed up at the airport a day later with luggage and ticket in hand. True, it was slightly awkward...

Coconut Red Curry Chicken Wrap with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Ok, I'm going to have to be a bit cagey for the next day so please forgive me, but I absolutely pinky promise to tell you why come this Friday. You see, I'm traveling but it’s best I don’t tell you where I'm headed until I'm actually there. Any guesses? Have at it – I just can't confirm or deny u...
