Lillet Buttermilk Shakes

Lillet Buttermilk Shakes

Lillet-spiked buttermilk shakes. Just a quick grown-up twist on the classic vanilla milkshake.

Herb Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs

Herb Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs

A scrambled egg recipe taught to me by the lovely Lynn from Satsuma Press - herby cream cheese is the last-second finish that make these eggs simple but special.

Summer Corn Salad

Summer Corn Salad

A crunchy, sweet no-cook summer corn salad. The salad is a breeze, has a ton of toasted pepitas & sunflower seeds, tossed with a brown sugar lemonade vinaigrette.

Homemade Celery Salt

Homemade Celery Salt

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.

Corn Soup

Corn Soup

A simple corn soup topped with an electric harissa-yogurt swirl + photos from a walk around North Beach on the Fourth of July.

No Bake Chocolate Cake

No Bake Chocolate Cake

A no bake chocolate cake I make when I'm feeling particularly lazy and need a crowd-pleaser of a dessert. Good-quality dark chocolate, cream, and whatever you like to infuse the cream - you're set.

Shaved Fennel Salad

Shaved Fennel Salad

This could very well be my favorite salad recipe from Super Natural Every Day - shaved fennel, arugula, zucchini coins, feta, toasted almonds.

Oatmeal Muffins

Oatmeal Muffins

A crumble-topped muffin recipe made with an oatmeal and yogurt base. Craggy, golden-topped, the last thing I'll bake before moving on to a new oven.

Sea Salt Baked Potatoes

Sea Salt Baked Potatoes

I love this baked potato recipe, topped with well-dressed arugula. A healthier take on the traditional baked potato. Crispy jackets split open to reveal a fluffy white potato interior.

Spiced Coconut Spinach

Spiced Coconut Spinach

The perfect simple, spinach side dish - toast a few spices, add a pile of shredded spinach to the skillet, and finish things off with a burst of lemon juice and some shredded coconut.
