Morning Meals :: Breakfast Tacos

I grew up in Southern California which means Mexican food is as prominent in my house as chicken and rice. Almost any meal deserves red pepper flakes or hot sauce, and breakfast is no exception. Breakfast tacos and burritos were a huge part of my family’s breakfast menu. It also happens to be a seriously… read more

Morning Meals :: Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal Crisps

This breakfast is somewhere between a healthy morning meal and a delicious indulgence.  It’s the perfect warm weather brunch idea, individually baked for your guests.  Breakfast crisps are perfectly sweet without giving you the sugar hangover of most pastries.  It’s best served with strong coffee and a dollop of whipped creme if you’re feeling fancy.… read more

This delicious breakfast can be eaten warm, cold, at home or on the go. Raspberry preserves were my first choice, but feel free to… read more

Tuesday Tastings :: Super Healthy Migas

Can we start this post with an informal survey? I’m dying to know: how many of you have never had migas? It was such a normal weekend breakfast for us growing up — my dad standing at the stove crunching up the tortilla chips to toss into scrambled eggs — that I sometimes forget it’s… read more

Tuesday Tastings :: Black Quinoa Chopped Salad

I’ve got to admit that my weekend stomach bug put a bit of a hiccup in my recent detox efforts — there’s just something about being in recovery mode that makes me want to eat nothing but slice after slice of buttered toast (hello, gluten!) Thankfully, I’m back in the saddle and loving the taste… read more

The Super Foodie :: Miso Glazed Eggplant

When I spotted these tiny eggplants at the farmer’s market, I just knew I had to have them at my next dinner table! Roasted with a sweet miso glaze, they’re as tasty as they are adorable. I prefer chickpea miso but if you can’t find it, a sweet yellow miso will work as well! In… read more

12 Tastes of Christmas :: Beth’s Cinnamon Rolls

Next up in our 12 Tastes of Christmas series is a mouthwateringly decadent (and gluten-free!) recipe perfect for whipping up this Christmas morning. I have loved getting to know Beth Manos Brickey of Tasty Yummies over the blogosphere this past year… not only is she ridiculously talented, she’s just one of those people that sends off… read more

The Super Foodie :: Spaghetti Squash with Marinara

I love spaghetti like a dog loves bones, but what I don’t love is that feeling of fullness when I’ve eaten my weight in noodles… which is why I think spaghetti squash is such a brilliant vegetable. It provides my spaghetti-loving satisfaction without that heavy, processed carb after-dinner sluggishness. And paired with this hearty, homemade… read more

Tuesday Tastings :: Eggplant & Shiitakes with Soy

This recipe is really all about the dressing, which turns just about any humble vegetable into a showstopping, entertaining-worthy dish (so far, I’ve tried on asparagus and sugar snap peas in addition to this concoction, and they’ve all been transportive.) I adapted the dressing from an asparagus & portobello salad in Gwyneth’s new cookbook, and… read more
