A TALE OF TWO SALADS

In case I don’t say it enough, I love salad! My relationship with salad was definitely not a case of love at first bite. Once upon a time, I viewed salad as that obligatory side dish, the one that was there for no other reason than to be endured so you could check green veg […]

Last Zuchini of the season

ZUCCHINI ALMOND FLOUR PANCAKES

OK, I promise, this is the last zucchini recipe, of this season. Really, I promise! I know a lot of you are in zucchini recipe overload, but here on the West Coast we’re still swimming in these little buggers. Besides, zucchini is so incredibly versatile, which is a culinary lifesaver since I have served them […]

PICKLED PEPPERS

I love our weekly CSA box. It’s like Christmas morning every Friday when I go to pick up the box. But like those wonderfully appreciated but fateful Christmas presents you got as a kid, you never knew what you were going to get. One of the challenges of our CSA box is that it often […]

Lamb bone and onion ingredients for Bone Broth

HOMEMADE BONE BROTH

This is a staple in our house. We use it every morning as the base for our Vegetable Breakfast Soup and for any recipe that needs broth or stock. For bone broth, there are many recipes out there, with many different techniques; you can bake the bones first, you can sauté the bones for flavor, […]

Summer Squash Soup with Dill and Lemon

SUMMER SQUASH SOUP

Summer is all about having way too much zucchini. It’s funny — I was never a huge fan when I was a kid, but now that I have discovered how versatile and delicious these little buggers can be, I really like them. This is one of the first recipes I ever developed, and it is […]

Gluten Free waffles with Banana and walnuts

BANANA ALMOND FLOUR WAFFLES

By the time the weekend rolls around, my kids and I are looking to change things up from our morning Breakfast Soup. When asked very nicely (it’s hard to say no to a super cute 7-year-old) for waffles, I decided it was time to experiment, the results were delicious, and we have a new weekend […]

HERB AND OLIVE FRITTATA

While Seasonal Breakfast Soup is our much loved weekday breakfast, weekends call for something a bit special. Frittata is a family favorite. It’s wonderfully flexible as far as what ingredients are featured, it packs in a plethora of veg, and can be little or big depending on how hungry breakfasters are. As a general rule, I add […]

FRESH BASIL AND ALMOND PESTO

Sauces and dressings hold the power to elevate a ho-hum salad, soup or lack-luster chicken breast into a culinary delight. Pesto is one of my favorite delicious and versatile kitchen concoctions. Pesto is a packed with leafy greens, whether it’s herbs (basil, marjoram, Italian parsley, thyme, this is where you can get super creative), greens (kale, spinach, arugula…), […]
