Bean and Cabbage Tacos with Pickled Onions

Hi. Things are going to be a little different around here for the foreseeable future. I don’t really plan content too far ahead and I get a lot of inspiration from what I have on hand. That being said, the recipes are going to be really pantry heavy and probably pretty simple (since I have...

Crispy Scallion Asparagus Pizza

This post is in partnership with California Grown. I’m finding myself wanting to spend nearly every minute outside as the weather gets warmer. This feeling also includes cooking and in the case of this recipe, using the pizza oven. I love asparagus for the ease in this recipe and the chili oil takes the whole...

Bitter Greens Salad with Miso-Citrus Vinaigrette

Everyone should have a low-stress salad in their back pocket. There are many ways you can go with a salad like this, but this version has become a favorite. I’ve served it at pop-up dinners and also meals with friends. What works with it is the combination of something bitter (the greens), something sweet (the...

Midwinter II Meal Plan

When I first started planning meals, I found I would over plan and buy too much. I’d schedule every weeknight dinner, but inevitably, something would come up, and I’d have to shift things around. In return, I’d feel some emotion towards that, and it was usually negative. This feeling led to now, where I keep...

Creamy Carrot-Coconut Soup

I’m popping in to share a recipe from a new cookbook I can’t put down. To be honest, it’s hit and miss with new cookbooks.

Arugula Delicata Squash Pasta

I was the type of kid who put chips on her sandwich (and by kid, I mean fully functioning adult). It’s a texture thing. I like the crunch paired with the softness of the sandwich. This delicata squash pasta is similar in that it’s not really pasta but a salad with pasta in it. The...
