Kale Shakshuka

Kale Shakshuka

I am definitely on the shakshuka bandwagon. It’s taken me some time to come up with a recipe in the style of shakshuka sans tomato, but now that I have there is no stopping me. And the best thing about today’s recipe is it is […]

Kale Apple Cucumber Ginger Green Drink

Kale Apple Cucumber Ginger Green Drink

To start off this is not a juice. I will spare you a rant on why I do not believe in juicing and just leave you with two main points. Juicing removes all the fiber from fruits and vegetables. Fiber keeps you full and regulated. […]

Featured Ingredient: Kale

Featured Ingredient: Kale

It only seemed fitting to start of the new year with kale as my featured ingredient. Kale has become synonymous with healthy food. You can find kale in smoothies, salads, chips. You name it, you can make it with kale. To be honest, I have […]

Challah French Toast with Persimmon & Pear

Challah French Toast with Persimmon & Pear

Growing up, I could not resist a good French toast whenever we went out for breakfast. Its sort of the best of both worlds in my opinion, eggs, bread, and something sweet. However, in college, weekend breakfasts served a different purpose and I strayed from […]

Persimmon Winter Salsa

Persimmon Winter Salsa

Winter fruits do not get enough credit! Berries and stone fruits are great, but persimmon, pomegranate, and pairs are pretty perfect! Fruit is much needed during the winter to add some freshness to hearty soups and stews. Persimmons make for a great salsa as they […]

Persimmons Yogurt Parfait

Persimmons Yogurt Parfait

I think, I learned an important lesson about persimmons last week. Haiycha’s in particular must be very ripe before you eat them! I couldn’t figure out what was off when I was cooking last week, but after having some today, that must have been the […]

Persimmon Rose Pastry

Persimmon Rose Pastry

Apple rose pastries were trending throughout my Instagram feed last year. This year, I am reviving this easy pastry by adding persimmons to the mix. Persimmons are a beloved holiday fruit, but pretty difficult to find on the east coast, due to a short fleeting […]

Butternut Squashshuka

I haven’t stopped eating in two days and there is no end in sight. And today’s recipe is perfect way to use up all your leftover squash! I have been missing out on the whole shakshuka/eggs in purgatory trend, given that I cannot stand tomato […]

Pumpkin Hazelnut Crumble

Pumpkin Hazelnut Crumble

It dawned on me last week, why is pumpkin pie, the only way pumpkin is served on thanksgiving. What about pumpkin crisps, crumbles, or cobblers. I find it hard to believe that no one wants to eat any of those? So I set out to […]

Honeynut Squash Tacos with Pear Radicchio Slaw

Honeynut Squash Tacos with Pear Radicchio Slaw

Does anyone ever get sick of tacos? Not me! It’s likely to do with the fact that I am the opposite of a taco purist (who do you call the opposite?). I love coming up with new taco combinations and I am often inspired by […]

Grilled Brie & Plums

Grilled Brie & Plums

Grilled Brie. It sounds bizarre right? But let me tell you, once you try it you might not want to have brie any other way. Especially when you are topping it with tart juicy plums. It’s the perfect balance of sweet, creamy, and tart.

Summer Squash Lattice Galette

Summer Squash Lattice Galette

Who said lattice work should be reserved for pie only? I think summer squash deserves to be beautiful too, don’t you? And besides being impressive for your guests, hidden beneath the lattice is something even tastier… three types of cheese! Yes you read that right, […]
