Sesame Yogurt Pasta Salad

Sesame Yogurt Pasta Salad

An off-beat pasta salad made with stuffed pasta, seasonal vegetables, and a spice-forward, golden sesame yogurt sauce.

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.

Macaroni Salad

Macaroni Salad

A twist on classic macaroni salad - I toss the pasta with a creamy sauce made from sauteed green onions, then add lots of black pepper, arugula, diced apple, and lemon juice to the bowl.

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.

Green Pea Soup

Green Pea Soup

A simple Indian-spiced green pea soup. You make a garlic ginger paste, then use it as the base of the soup along with some onion. Some green chile contributes some kick, along with other spices.

Quinoa with Currants, Dill, and Zucchini

Quinoa with Currants, Dill, and Zucchini

Made from a quirky combination of quinoa, dill, shredded zucchini, and currants - a quinoa salad from Maria Speck's book, Ancient Grains for Modern Meals.

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.
