Kiwi Avocado Mango Salsa

Kiwi Avocado Mango Salsa

Even though Cinco de Mayo was last weekend, I don’t need an excuse to eat salsa, tacos, or margaritas. Lately, my favorite way salsa include fruit and avocado and today’s recipe is no different. But the even more exciting news is I discovered you can […]

Kiwi Margarita

Kiwi Margarita

I am so excited to by participating Margarita Week this year hosted by Kate Ramos of Hola Jalapeno. I must have signed up last year and totally forgot about it, but when the email invitation hit my inbox last month, I just couldn’t wait. As […]

Featured Ingredient: Kiwi

Featured Ingredient: Kiwi

I love kiwis and have always associated them as a tropical fruit, but, it turns out they actually originated from China (and are therefore sometimes referred to as Chinese gooseberries). Missionaries brought the kiwi to New Zealand before it brought to the United States. The […]

Spiralized Raw Asian Veggie Salad

Spiralized Raw Asian Veggie Salad

There is no better way to eat lots of veggies then when they are put together in the colors of the rainbow, right? I mean if you are going to eat cups of veggies, they might as well be instagram worthy?! Just kidding, but maybe […]

Baked Avocado Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

Baked Avocado Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

Avocado Tacos are something I always order when I see them on the menu… I mean avocados are so clearly delicious, why not make them the star ingredient of a taco. But given avocados soft creamy texture, an avocado taco begs for something crunchy, so […]

Featured Ingredient: Cabbage

Featured Ingredient: Cabbage

Cabbage often drums up a negative connotation. Past generations often steamed cabbage until it was wilted and gray. But I think cabbage is best served raw. It adds a great crunch to everything from tacos to veggie burgers to salads. So if you think you […]

Sunchoke & Beet Couscous

Sunchoke & Beet Couscous

There are truly so many ways to enjoy sunchokes! They are definitely one of my favorite root vegetables, but I am just trying to figure out why I had not heard of them sooner! Today’s dish is sort of a cross between a lot of […]

Sunchoke & Dukkah Hummus

Sunchoke & Dukkah Hummus

I think I am running out of stories behind all the different hummus flavors I am making. The long story short is I just love hummus and after tasting the creaminess of sunchokes, I knew it would make a really good hummus, and so I […]

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, […]
