Sometimes we're really good about taking along healthy snacks when we travel. But other times we wouldn't think to leave home without something sweet. That's when we make these Toffee Espresso Chocolate Truffles, which are easy enough to make before your next flight, even if you only have a few minutes.
September to us is back-to-school even if none of us have any school to head back to these days. And with it, we can't help thinking about after-school snacks. One that always stands the test of time are puffed rice treats, though these days we make them less Rice Krispy Treat style and nix the marshmallows in favor of almond butter and dark chocolate. Because even if you don't need an after-school snack, it's always welcome, you know?
It's that time of the year when two summertime truths emerge: a) it’s too hot to really cook and b) you somehow find yourself with have a bushel of zucchini to get through. So, we thought we’d kill two culinary birds with one stone with this Marinated Zucchini Chicken Salad.
I'm a romantic at heart so I have these swoon-worthy visions of summertime picnics. At the seaside, at sunset, or at a music performance, there's something about the perfect picnic that just makes my culinary heart pitter patter. And, yes, the vision of my perfect picnic has cold lemonade, a more adult sipper, and a great salad, but it's pretty much incomplete unless there's a sandwich like this Slow-Roasted Tomato and Cilantro-Cashew Picnic Sandwich.
Eating on a road trip is like eating at a sports game — your healthy-eating choices are limited at best. Sure, comfort food from a hole-in-the-wall diner sounds amazing but riding in the car after eating a gut-bomb is asking for a food coma. So, before I hit the road I make these no-bake Blueberry Almond Granola Bars. They're easy to make, loaded with good-for-me ingredients, satisfies both the sweet and savory tooth, and, best of all, they haven't been sitting on a gas station shelf for six months.
I wish I knew about this salad so long ago. It's inspired by a salad I found at M Cafe de Chaya that's a bit fancier – with tempeh bacon, beets, and a vegan "Ranch" dressing. But, after spending way more than I should ever be spending on salads, I decided to make my own version.
Coffee cake is one of those recipes that I kinda make without hesitation because it basically works in any situation. House guests? Hostess gift? Road trip? Coffee cake, coffee cake, coffee cake. And, when I'm traveling, I don't always have the coffee or tea that's supposed to go with it so I combined it in this Pistachio Chai Coffee Cake.
This is our favorite granola to bake before a busy week. It's free of gluten, refined sugars, and it super easy to make. It also filled with big clusters - the best part of granola! Enjoy it granola with your fave milk and fruit, on top of your favorite chia pudding, or even snacked on alone.
You know those times where it's like your living the movie The Hangover – the 1st one, of course, it's best – and you don't know what or when but you know it did happen. It really truly did happen and you need a get-out-of-jail-card? If it's bad eating then this is the cure.
February in Northern California is one of our favorite times of the year to road trip. It's that one moment when you can hit Napa, hike into the redwoods, and skip down to Big Sur and have it all to yourself. And when we road trip, we like to bring provisions; car snacks like this Vanilla Poundcake with Quick Kumquat Thyme Marmalade so we can pull over at a vista and slice a piece and slather it with marmalade.
When Lily Kunin of Clean Food Dirty City travels, she has a short list of “must-haves” to keep her sane during long flights, delays, and everything in between. These little chews have quickly made the list as her perfect travel snack. They are super refreshing, yet hearty enough to hold her over ...
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 ...
