Garden Broccoli

Not all recipes have to be fancy. Sometimes their only value is to remind us how to cook the thing we already love. I take it for granted that I know how to cook salmon. Crispy on the outside, silky smooth on the inside. For those of you looking to perfect restaurant-style seared salmon, this post is for you. It’s simple, straight forward, and nearly foolproof.

French Lentils

Ina Garten. My hero. She was the first cookbook author to show me French cuisine is not scary. Done the right way (with a glass of wine in your hand and the Midnight in Paris Spotify playlist on repeat) it too can be fulfilling, comforting, approachable, and deceptively easy to throw together.

Caramelized Pearl Onions

Pop one of these buttery, sweet onions in your mouth and you’ll know it was worth the wait.

Carrot Ribbons

Why are vegetables 1000 times more fun to cook and eat when they look like ribbons?

Salmon Rice Bowl

I can officially say that I have been on an Asian-inspired kick for the last few weeks. This recipe was created on a rainy night, when I had a bit of an upset stomach, and needed a belly-warming dinner.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps might remind you of eating appetizers at P.F. Chang’s, and the start to a hefty and greasy meal. (That said, I have been known to LOVE a good meal at Chang’s).

Roasted Asaparagus and Bell Peppers

This simple side dish is the perfect accompaniment for just about any entree. It is light enough to complement fish or chicken, and strong enough to stand up against a steak dinner.

Ayurvedic Carrot Soup

For those of you who don’t know, I have been studying and practicing yoga for the better part of 10 years.

Dinner for One

Throughout my life, cooking has been a means not only of creative expression but also of caring for the ones you love.
