Green Juice
Green Juice - September 17, 2014

Everyone should have a green juice recipe in their repertoire, and this one is a ringer. Its heart and soul is straight green, not at all sweet, with a good amount of lemon-lime tang, and invigorating ginger lift.

A Good Shredded Salad
A Good Shredded Salad - September 3, 2014

One of the things I love about having a work studio is our location. It means that most days, at one point or another, I find myself standing in the middle of San Francisco's Chinatown. This is a shredded salad inspired by the neighborhood - lots of cabbage and scallions, tossed with soy sauce, honey, and cilantro, and amount of crunch toasted peanuts, and celery.

An Ideal Lunch Salad
An Ideal Lunch Salad - February 25, 2013

There's all sorts of good stuff in this salad - chickpeas, celery, black olives, pepitas, avocado, blanched broccoli. Full of crunch & substance, it's a salad that can stand up to a few hours in a container without collapsing.

Heirloom Apple Salad
Heirloom Apple Salad - December 2, 2012

The sort of winter salad I love - heirloom apples, shaved celery, and toasted nuts of your choosing. The dressing is crème fraîche spiked with rosemary, garlic and champagne vinegar

Parmesan Celery Salad
Parmesan Celery Salad - August 7, 2012

A breezy summer-spirited lunch salad made with celery, beans, and Parmesan. And a glance at my attempt at organizing some of my pictures into albums.

Homemade Celery Salt
Homemade Celery Salt - July 18, 2011

Homemade celery salt couldn't be easier to make. I keep a bottomless jar of it on hand and use it on just about everything - eggs, soups, salads. It's hard to go wrong with it.

Christmas Lima Bean Stew
Christmas Lima Bean Stew - December 14, 2010

The soup I've cooked most this year. There is so much going on here despite a modest list of ingredients. Celery, crushed caraway, and garlic are cooked together alongside big hearty beans and chopped tomatoes in what becomes an olive-oil dappled broth. You serve each bowl with chopped oily, black olives and fresh lemon wedges. This is a version made with Christmas Lima beans, but you can substitute cannellini or giant corona beans.

Bulgur, Celery and Pomegranate Salad
Bulgur, Celery and Pomegranate Salad - December 23, 2008

This lovely, jeweled pomegranate salad recipe is from Samuel and Samantha Clark's book Moro East - toasted walnuts, celery, mint, parsley, and garlic. An easy, delicious, and a pretty addition to any table.

Chunky Celery Soup
Chunky Celery Soup - December 14, 2008

A chunky celery soup perfect for a winter day - celery, carrots, a potato, an onion, a bit of garlic, and some leftover wild rice.

Egg Salad Sandwich (the only one I'll eat)
Egg Salad Sandwich (the only one I'll eat) - April 8, 2007

The egg salad sandwich recipe I turn to multiple times a week. Light on the mayo, with good quality eggs, chopped celery, and a sprinkling of chives on thinly sliced whole grain bread.

Braised Celery with Crunchy Bread Crumb Topping
Braised Celery with Crunchy Bread Crumb Topping - December 18, 2005

Molly Stevens' Braised Celery recipe - take a dish of celery segments topped with a dose of sauteed aromatics (celery hearts, shallots, and thyme), and a bit of broth. Slowly cook it all down under a roof of tinfoil until it is nice, moist, and tender - then finish it off gratin-style with crunchy bread crumbs and a bit of nutty gruyere.

Herb Jam with Olives and Lemon
Herb Jam with Olives and Lemon - February 9, 2005

A Paula Wolfert recipe - this is a fantastic Moroccan spread made of a thick mash of herbs and greens, accented with smokey spices, chopped olives, and lemon.
