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...

Originally I wanted to call this corn bread cheese cornbread, but I know that is misleading. I never use real cheese in my recipes and I would be lying if it tastes exactly like the real thing. So over the years I have tried not to call recipes by their inspiration, an...

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.

Fall is officially here, but I am not quite ready to throw on the boots and cardigans just yet... well also it is officially heat wave weather here in the Bay Area, so we are definitely still enjoying the last of our delicious popsicles. Just a quick reminder to downlo...

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...

All I want at the moment is creamy comfort food that brings a little heat. Thai food can be quite cooling because it is hot in Thailand, and you want freshness from your meals. But when you combine the heat of chili and ginger with the freshness of lime and the density...
