So this has been an interesting week for us. Our power was cut again due to high winds and this presenting a huge fire danger. Honestly, I am a combination of really pissed off and annoyed, but also very very grateful that so far we have been spared from a real disaste...

This salad is the perfect fall companion at the table. It makes you feel full and comforted while also filling up your plate with goodness. You can even serve it warm if you prefer a warmer dish at this time of the year. 

The key to this recipe is that each co...

The last of the summer produce is so good, and I am I love with everything tomato right now! My absolute favorite ones are the Early Girl tomatoes, but if you can't find them, you can always use regular tomatoes or sweeter cherry tomatoes. The figs make the salad super...

Ok, let me be frank, I use the word tapenade very loosely here. Usually tapenade is made with black olives and capers, and processed into a smooth paste with olive oil. I leave this one much chunkier, add garlic, chili, and herbs, and most importantly - I used green ol...

I have been working non stop on my next ebook all about detoxes and cleanses. I am writing all about the fad cleanses out there, how our body works, and what we can do to truly support it... which always comes back to eating real, whole foods. There is no magical formu...

I tend to post mainly sweet breakfast recipes, because that is what I really love; warm, creamy oatmeals, yummy muffins, and gorgeous smoothie bowls. Occasionally I will craves something savory though, and that it gets tough. How many avocado toasts can I possibly...

Ok, Thai and quinoa in one recipe doesn't seem very traditional. It's not. But it is the coolest creation by one of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area: Daughter Thai in Mont Clair. I have to say, having lived in Thailand for 3 years, I have become somewhat of...
