BBQ Halloumi Skewers with Herbed Mash

BBQ Halloumi Skewers with Herbed Mash

I first was introduced to halloumi cheese in Scotland, which is a far cry from its country of origin, Cyprus. A cheese with a high melting point that can be fried or grilled. In Edinburgh, I had it pan fried over amazing salads at Mimis […]

Essential Heirloom Cranberry Beans

Essential Heirloom Cranberry Beans

Cranberry beans are the star of this recipe with their rich, velvety (almost meaty) texture. When cooked, they plump up to around pinto bean size, but with much more flavor. Rancho Gordo is my go-to brand for cranberry beans — an heirloom bean company working […]

Simple Green Smoothie

Simple Green Smoothie

I wondered if this combo was even enough of a “recipe” to put out there in the universe. However, my goal of this blog is to have an honest reflection of me — what I like to eat, and my vegetarian, (mostly!) healthy point of […]

Olive Oil & Sea Salt Soft Serve

Olive Oil & Sea Salt Soft Serve

A few Christmas’ ago I got a commercial ice cream maker from my stepdad. Growing up, he and I were kitchen buddies. I would play the integral part as sous-chef, especially for big parties, which happens a lot with a big family. So now, we have […]

Warm Dijon Rice Salad

I know salad is a bit of a stretch, but if potato salad or pasta salad are salads, then we can definitely add this to the salad category. Chock full of broccoli and green beans, vegetables are the highlight here. Additionally, salad is just foods […]

Vegan Banana Pecan Bites

Vegan Banana Pecan Bites

I’ve never been one to go for the breakfast cookie, but that was before I found these banana date drops at our local establishment, Good Earth. Not only are they delicious, but they are portable. I mean eat a yummy treat (or two!) while driving […]

BBQ Chickpea + Vegan Ranch Salad

BBQ Chickpea + Vegan Ranch Salad

Greg and I made a BBQ Chickpea Pizza from Pickles & Honey last week. I had leftover homemade BBQ sauce and extra chickpeas. So, at lunch, I was sitting their thinking of making a salad, and I wanted to give these ingredients new life. And […]

Spring Broccolini Tartine

Spring Broccolini Tartine

Spring has sprung here in California with cherry and magnolia blossoms, birds chirping, and even some days last week in the 70s. Scrolling through my Facebook, I’m already seeing photos of early season beachgoers. Winter has surrendered to spring, and without pause California seems ready […]
