Savory Do-It-Yourself Power Bars

Savory Do-It-Yourself Power Bars

These homemade power bars are based on the recipe I published years ago in Super Natural Cooking. The main difference here is I made these more savory with toasted walnuts, crumbled kale chips, and oil-cured olives.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Quick, clever, healthy breakfast ideas are something I'm always excited to discover. I landed on what I think of as new healthy breakfast favorite this week, and instead of simply sharing that recipe, I thought I'd list it off with a handful of other feel-good day starters.

Rye Crepes

Rye Crepes

The new year is here, and so far it has been crisp air, clear skies, thickest softest sweaters, afternoon reads, and big stews. We made crepes New Years Eve, and celebrated fresh starts, optimism, and our hopes for the coming months - a simple night of sparkling wine, crepes, and a far-away view of the downtown fireworks.

Bay Leaf Pound Cake

Bay Leaf Pound Cake

An incredibly moist and fragrant bay leaf pound cake from David Lebovitz's new cookbook. A perfect road trip cake.

Miso Oat Porridge

A simple bowl of toasted rolled oats finished with a bit of miso, then topped with a load of minced chives, walnuts, baby radishes, and a thread of cream. Also, a few snapshots from Los Angeles.
