Caramelized Onion Dip

Since having our daughter, we spend  a whole lot more time at home. Friends and family, gratiously so, almost exclusively come to us and the days of “hmmm…let’s just go out to eat and see a movie” are not as simple as they used to be. We’re lucky that we love to host and luckier […]

Charred Harissa Carrots with Goats Milk Labneh & Pistachios

If there’s one plus to summer winding down, it’s the market shelves spilling over with a veritable rainbow of fruits and vegetables ripe for the harvesting.  From apples to zucchinis and everything in between, it’s a cook’s paradise and allows the imagination to run wild with ways in which to prepare and serve these gifts […]

Baharat Lamb Flatbreads with Goat Milk Yogurt and Mint

I used to wonder why people found weeknight meals so taxing – just cook something! Then I had a kid. Sorry, parents. Dinner, like many other aspects of parenting, has been a total cluster…. you know. Learning how to manage a newborn baby who needs to be attached to you while you cook, an infant […]

Strawberry Sour Cream Froyo Pops with Bee Pollen Honey

When I was little my parent’s both played on recreational baseball teams. My sister and I used to attend the early games so we could play with the other kids in the nearby parks. Each week someone from the team would host an after party with lots of snacks and inappropriate jokes we always felt […]

Roasted Mango & Green Cardamom Lassi with Vanilla Chia Pudding

Breakfast sort of drives me crazy most days. I wake up starving but with literally ZERO desire to make anything but coffee and toast. Now, there isn’t a thing wrong with toast but it gets to be a bit of a bore after 31 years of having it pretty much any/every way. And I often […]

Rhubarb-Vanilla Bean Upside Down Rye Cake

It’s pretty wild to think of the evolution of recipes and how they’re shared now compared to just decades ago. I have a select few of my Nana’s recipes that she passed down, scribbled barely legibly on a branded notepad and held together with a sewing pin. The ink is fading by the day and […]

Powerhouse Green Dip

Back before we had Ruthie I imagined a world where she would sit, quiet and still, on the counter top watching diligently as I put together a recipe or meal. She would be absorbing everything I did, holding steadfastly to the memory of cooking with Mama when she was a little girl. We would sit […]

The Art of Spent Love

We don’t celebrate Valentines Day in our house. That isn’t because our immaculate love transcends Hallmark Holidays or because we reek of pretentiousness and manage to romance each other every day so we don’t need a special day that tells us to do it. If I’m being honest, it’s because we don’t really care. Because […]

Partners in Prep

The older we get the more our precious time at home, together a family, matters. Whether we’re dancing to Robyn’s Dancing On My Own (which Ruthie used to dance to while we were sharing a body), sitting around the table painting or taking the sled for a spin around the block, we realize these moments […]

Warm Gooey Gut Feelings

Can you believe it’s almost here? Are the looming holidays causing your anxiety to spike and your excitement to stir? Us too. I love Christmas. LOVE it.  I live for that warm gooey feeling you get in your gut when you’re surrounded by good food and better people. I’m waiting, rather impatiently, for my 16 […]
