Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl

I’ve been dying to share this recipe ever since we got back from Hawaii a couple months ago — there seems to be a poke bowl (pronounced “poh-ké”) on the menu at just about every restaurant in Maui, and since I sampled so many of them throughout the trip, it took me a little while […]

Cucumber Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette & Chile Oil

It’s possible that I needed an outlet for my frustration (the lazy days of summer are over, after all!), but when I read about the trend of smashing cucumbers, I couldn’t wait to pull out my kitchen mallet and make a delicious mess.

Roman Caprese

Tomato, Nectarine and Mozzarella Salad

This salad, you guys. There’s a lot I could say about it, but it comes down to this: for a gorgeous, simple, couldn’t-be-more-refreshing summer dish, look no further. It’s no surprise that tomato, nectarines and basil all complement each other so well — they can all be grown in your own backyard this time of […]
