Strawberry Snacks

Summer is right around the corner and that means strawberry season is upon us! Fragrant red California strawberries are everywhere. Our family will be snacking on strawberries all summer since they’re low in sugar and high in vitamin C. It is a great treat, especially for kids. My 7 month old already loves gnawing on […]

Granola-Crusted Yogurt Fruit Tart

So this looks pretty impressive right? Well, the reality is that this Granola-Crusted Yogurt Fruit Tart is just a granola, yogurt and fruit parfait. For brunch entertaining, I love the idea of a simple classic breakfast dish reformatted into something more elevated and elegant. The crust is a simple granola recipe that is baked into […]

Adzuki bean brownies

These brownies have no flour or refined sugar. Adzuki (also known as red beans) replace all the flour you would ordinarily find in brownies. You would never know it. As dense as beans sound, they offer a fluffy texture that lightens the brownie batter, much like wheat flour does. I absolutely love adzuki beans and they are so nutritious but if you can’t find any or don’t want to go through the hassle of cooking them from dried beans, you can substitute with black beans. These are decadent, fudgey and rich in that chocolate that I know you crave!

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.
