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...

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

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...
