Yes, that little number is a 4 on the side. I can't believe Baby Zand is already 4 years old!!! Where has the time gone? I can tell you where: to endless hours of cuddles in the middle of the night, time spent in the kitchen together making energy balls (thes...

We have put so much love and care into our garden this summer, and it is rewarding us handsomely. We are flooded with apples, zucchini, celery, lettuce, and more, and I am loving it. It makes me be creative in the kitchen with the sudden influx of certain produce. We h...

A couple of weeks ago on Instagram I shared how we were making chocolate mousse with aquafaba. No one knew that aquafaba was, and how it turned into chocolate mousse. Get ready, because this will surprise you! It is the liquid you drain away from canned chickpeas. I kn...

Easter is almost here, so it's time for yummy carrot cake. Even though carrot cake sounds healthy - carrots are a vegetable after all, right? - most are filled with processed vegetable oils, refined sugar, and gut inflaming flours. And as you may know by now, I set out...

We are currently in Singapore visiting my sister and Baby Zand's cousins. It's been a week of fun, sunshine, and swimming. Plus an entire new household of toys - needless to say Baby Zand has been in heaven. For me, I've been able to test out what it's like having 4 ki...

Persian New Year is here again! As you can see, I am clearly more obsessed with making sweets healthier with a touch of Persian New Year flavors such as cardamom and rose. In the last two years I've made cookies and chocolate. This year I made a Persian New Year inspir...

Stews and soups are my go-to recipes right now. I make them in big batches, then eat them for days. Plus, there is no reason you can't reinvent them for new meals, so it doesn't get boring. For example, one day I serve this chili with the cornbread, then I mix it with...
