Pickled Turmeric Eggs

Pickled Turmeric Eggs

If you've got hard-boiled eggs and five extra minutes, you can make these beauties! They're the best. Hard-boiled eggs pickled in turmeric, shallot, and apple cider vinegar - beautiful, quick to make, and delicious.

Chia Breakfast Bowl

Chia Breakfast Bowl

A summery chia breakfast bowl - soak the chia seeds in your favorite nut milk, top with smashed berries, fresh passionfruit juice, pepitas, and big flakes of toasted coconut. A bit of bee pollen adds a boost and some pretty.

A Simple Carrot Soup

A Simple Carrot Soup

The simplest of carrot soups. One I love, in part, because it's an example of how a beautiful meal can come together with a bit of care, and an impossibly short list of ingredients. Carrots and onion form the base, which is spiked with dollop of red curry paste, and then pureed into silky oblivion.

Limoncello Macaroons

Limoncello Macaroons

A limoncello macaroon recipe along with a batch of photos from a cabin weekend in Mendocino. The cookies are golden-crusted, powder-coated, almond-citrus gems spiked with limoncello liqueur my sister made for me.

Using your Underutilized Steamer

Using your Underutilized Steamer

I find myself using steam as a cooking technique increasingly for a number of reasons. It's deceptively fast. It maintains much of the vibrancy and vitally of ingredients. It's one of the most healthful ways to cook, and (as you'll see) it's surprisingly adaptable.

Broiled Saffron Dates

Broiled Saffron Dates

If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates - broiled with saffron, almond extract, ghee, and a bit of salt. They're unctuous, sweet goodness.

Turmeric Popcorn

Turmeric Popcorn

Kernels popped in ghee,clarified butter, or coconut oil and tossed with a short list of power ingredients - turmeric, saffron, nutritional yeast, sesame, and toasted coconut. A+ afternoon snack.

Vitamin C Tea Blend

Vitamin C Tea Blend

Hibiscus and rose hips are both Vitamin C power houses. This is a much appreciated tea blend for when an immunity boost is needed, or for the times when you're feeling stressed, over-worked, or dragging just a bit. I add a good bit of saffron, and lemon peel for dimension and flavor.

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.
