Quick recipes often become my favorites. They are the ones I revisit most often, the ones that have a tendency to become staples. I’m a believer that just because a recipe comes together quickly, doesn’t mean it's less special or delicious.

To make great guacamole you have to go off-recipe. It's all about the in-between steps, decisions, and knowing when avocados are at their best.
A homemade blend of detoxifying mint tea - green tasting from mint and coriander, and fennel-sweet. It has layered peppery-ness from black peppercorn and freshly muddled ginger. I've been brewing this quite a bit lately, and took it in a thermos on our drive to Big Sur.
A one-pan green bean side with a walnut-garlic dressing and highlighted with pomelo segments. Transform it into an easy main with the addition of some seared tofu or a poached egg.
Eggs poached in white wine peppered with minced shallots and herbs. A simple twist that immediately transformed the humble poached egg into something just a hint special and unexpected. Served over smashed avocado on toasted bread.
A good number of you were curious about the tofu and amaranth salad pictured next to those chive pancakes I posted a few weeks back. Here's the recipe. Thanks for your patience!
Tiny socca-inspired pancakes made with buttermilk or keffir - golden, tender, and cooked in cold-pressed spicy mustard oil. Flat out delicious.
I started making this turmeric tea for its beneficial properties, and now it is one of my favorite daily rituals - made from a honey turmeric paste with lots of lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper.
A simple late-summer breakfast bowl - Greek yogurt with a bit of chopped dill incorporated, topped with sliced pluots, toasted oats, poppy seeds, and honey.
A few snapshots from Mexico City & an avocado salad - thinly sliced avocado arranged over simple lentils, drizzled with oregano oil, toasted hazelnuts, and chives.
Whisper thin crepe-like pancakes made from brown rice flour, coconut milk, eggs, and sesame seeds. And my preference in pots and pans.
