Deviled Eggs

Four stunningly beautiful ways to dye eggs with natural ingredients. A perfect DIY family-friendly activity for Easter!

Deviled Eggs

These are not your traditional deviled eggs, but they have classic deviled egg flavors, and in my opinion– better texture. I just love the velvety and thick runny egg yolk, so I thought why turn them into crumbly hard yolks only to smooth them out again with mayo? Also, these are easier to make. Each […]

Our journey continues onto Somerset, just about 97 miles west of London, to a little town called Bath. As you might know, it’s best known for its Roman Baths which were once used for public bathing and now considered one of the best preserved Roman sites in the world. And in a town as small […]

Clams in Spicy Tomato and Fennel Soup

Clams are often prepared steamed in white wine and aromatics like garlic, but I think clams cooked in tomatoes aren’t given enough attention. The combination of briny clam juice with acidic and sweet tomato soup is just phenomenal.

Visiting London

I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the England with Visit Britain. If you remember our exploration through Manchester, the Lake District and Edinburgh last year, you’ll know that the United Kingdom is bursting at the seams with design inspiration, culture and incredibly exceptional food. I was chomping at the bit to return […]

Pepian Fish Tacos

If you’re not familiar with pepian, it is a thick green Mexican sauce (or mole) that uses pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds as its base. Fish or poultry is often simmered in this sauce making it a rich dish brightened with green herbs. My version is not a classic pepian dish– I’ve taken the sauce that you’d ordinarily cook the protein in for a long time and made it a sauce for fish tacos. The bright green color comes from all the cilantro, green onions and fresh chiles.

Almond butter chocolate covered dates

One of my New Year resolutions was to cut out refined sugar. Another one of my resolutions was to stick to my resolutions beyond January. So here I am in February with lots of sugar cravings which means I’m making a lot of date-based desserts lately (I do make an exception for minimal quantities of very dark chocolate, which does have some refined sugar). That means a lot of date-cacao balls and these almond butter stuffed chocolate covered dates. These are even easier to make than my date-cacao balls and soo delicious.

Persian Love Cake

For Valentine’s Day this year, I wanted to make something really pretty. Something super girly and pink. But it had to taste as pretty as it looked and I couldn’t think of a better flavor pairing that represented pink than rose and cardamom. I’ve used cardamom plenty of times in desserts and it’s quite possibly my favorite spice. This Persian love cake is a simple fragrant cake made from almond flour, cardamom and rose water.

Mushroom Wild Rice “Meatloaf”

Veggies prepared the right way can be just as filling and substantial as meat. One of the dishes that I’ve had on repeat is this mushroom, walnut and wild rice “meatloaf”. You’ll need a food processor but this is otherwise very easy to make and topped with some spicy tomato sauce, this can easily become the star of your dinner!
