Vanilla Poundcake with Kumquat-Thyme Marmalade

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.

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 ...

Torta di Ricotta e Polenta

David and Luise are some of our favorites – their blog, Green Kitchen Stories, has gorgeous photography, their recipes are inspiring, and, as Stockholm natives, they make Scandinavia look like the best place on earth. But they also travel a lot and, like us here at Salt & Wind, they get inspi...

Spiced Persimmon Pudding

Persimmon pudding isn't really a pudding -- well, in the British sense, yes, but to us Yankees it can be misleading. It's like a boozed and spiced persimmon cake bar conconction, which, semantics aside, is one of my favorite ways to bake with persimmons.

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...

Toasted Coconut and Coffee Salted Chocolate Bark

Bark is like culinary Cliff's Notes because it's there for you whenever you need to cut corners but still make something handmade. And, I mean, what's not to like – it takes minutes of effort and you can customize each batch (aka use any leftover pantry goodies) yet it's still gorgeous enough to ...

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.

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...

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...
