Wrap Up & July Challenge

June was a blur. A blur with lots of vegetables. That was just a small sampling of food from my Terry Wahl’s challenge. The only hitch in my plan to eat 9 cups of veggies per day was that I have a decreased appetite recently, so I’ve been eating only two meals each day, but […]

Cinnamonions

Roast onions. Add cinnamon. Enjoy paroxyms of caramelized delight. My friend once told me that onions are the perfect food. I never really understood where she was coming from until I stopped thinking of onions as a supporting player, a background flavor for other dishes, and allowed their natural sweetness and brilliance to shine by […]

What do you eat when you travel across an ocean? Stress out on two continents? Run around making holiday plans and execute them? Feed a family of hungry skiiers? Host your sister for three weeks? Get the flu? Return to normal life after months of upheaval? Real food. Real, simple food. It’s food like this […]

Lazy Sunday Mornings: Roasted Vegetable Salad

Let’s talk about Lazy Sunday Mornings. They are essential. Weekends should be relaxing, restorative, and reinvigorating. On Saturday mornings I like to get things done: workouts, school club activities, farmers markets, errands, cleaning, and the like. But Sunday mornings are all about enjoying the moment. Sunday mornings are for hanging out in your super soft […]

Thank you for your patience the last few weeks. Second term at school is by far the busiest, and I’m still trying to gain that elusive property of balance in my life. It has been far too long without a recipe, so let’s get this show on the road! I posted the Sugar Series while […]

Laarb-inspired Summer Salad

This…this makes my heart sing. The color, the different textures, even the fun shapes! I eat salad every day, but there is something particularly exciting about summer salads. Cool, refreshing, wholesome, and extra tasty with all the super fresh produce, I’ll munch my way through salads all summer long. For the past month or so, […]

Anatomy of a Salad

I was trying to decide what recipe to post this week. I wanted to share something that I eat often, and finally it dawned on me: salad. I eat it every day, sometimes twice a day as lunch and part of dinner. And I NEVER, ever get tired of it. When I travel for a […]

A New Outlook + Braised and Roasted Cabbage

I was never a huge fan of cabbage as a child. It fell under the category of over-boiled, soggy vegetables, ruined by unfortunate preparation methods (Oh how I lament how many people must have been turned off lovely broiled Brussels sprouts or lightly sautéed spinach because they’ve only ever experienced bland, boiled, limp nothingness). And […]

Balsamic Roasted Vegetable and Chicken Salad + Simple Lime Vinaigrette

Next to turkey, which is sadly not so popular and readily available in Japan, chicken is my go-to meat source, a favorite since childhood. I love it in soups, stews, stir-frys, broiled, grilled, pounded flat and stuffed, wrapped in (clean) bacon…it is so versatile I haven’t tired of it or the numerous ways to prepare […]
