Saffron Chickpea & Chard Hash with Sunny Egg
A vegetarian chickpea and chard hash seasoned with a pinch of saffron and topped with a runny, sunny egg. The perfect savory breakfast dish and–most importantly–so easy. I have a thing for saffron. During my year-long dietetic internship I spent a few weeks in a small psychiatric hospital and the head kitchen manager was a […]
Blood Orange, Kiwi & Mint Margaritas
Forget mixes, this margarita recipe uses fresh lime and the tropical flavors of blood orange and kiwi to bring an island flair to your next cocktail hour. Like a cat, I’ve lived nine lives. Before becoming a dietitian, I spent years in the restaurant and food industry and one of my jobs was mixing cocktails […]
Mushroom & Pea Risotto with White Truffle Oil
Risotto, arguably the most feared of all pastas. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that risotto is a hard dish to get right, and I believed it because I’ve had my fair share of bad risotto. Before attempting to make the dish on my own, I assumed it was beyond my skill scope. It […]
Pluot & Brown Sugar Buckwheat Pancakes
I love breakfast. I could never choose a favorite eating occasion (I love them all) but breakfast is near and dear to my heart, and not only because there is usually coffee involved (but that too). From sweet pancakes to savory potatoes to good old fashion oats and a cup of joe, the decisions are […]
Blood Orange, Kiwi & Mint Fruit Salad
When I think of fruit salads, I picture small plastic cups with a medley of bland, diced fruit in a thick syrup. This is the kind of fruit salad I grew up on and, I have to be honest, I’ve never been a big fan because of this formative canned fruit salad experience. As I […]
Winter Squash & Arugula Salad with Pomegranates, Goat Cheese & Kamut
Late winter. That dreaded time between New Year’s and spring that seems to drag on for eternity. I have to admit this time period isn’t as bad now that I live in California, but growing up in the Midwestern United States and riding the weather rollercoaster of 3 days of 60 degree weather followed by […]
Roasted Cauliflower with Gorgonzola & Lime
You probably read that title and thought, “What? Gorgonzola and lime?,” because that’s exactly what I thought too…until I tried it. This recipe was born out of necessity. It was cleaning day in my house and I had been scrubbing floors for hours and realized I was famished. I opened the fridge to realize that […]
Scalloped Potatoes with Leeks, Enoki & Taleggio
There are times you drink green smoothies, eat kale salads, and have vegan soup–and then there are times you eat baked scalloped potatoes made with cream, whole milk and topped with Italian taleggio cheese. Each has their place. As a dietitian I will always tout the benefits of leafy green vegetables over greasy fried food, […]
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shallots, Maple & Mustard
Do you remember that Sex in the City episode when the girls are talking about “Secret Single Behavior?” Charlotte admits to checking every pore in a hand mirror and Carrie confesses to making a saltine/jelly sandwich. Well, I have to disclose my own SSB: I eat roasted brussels sprouts with pancetta. Let me back up. […]
Butternut Squash, Cranberry & Kale Salad With Creamy Avocado-Pear Dressing
Oh, butternut squash, how I love and loathe thee. You make wonderful soups, roast to a delicious mix between sweet and savory, are packed with vitamin A and add really great color to food photos. However, you are a complete pain in the ass to cut. Every time I post or say that, someone tells […]
So Easy Lentil & Farro Bowl with Sunny Egg & Spicy Harissa
Just so you know, I’m a big, BIG fan of easy. I may cook dinner 5-6 times a week, but I rarely spend more than 30-40 minutes preparing and cooking my meals (and half of that is spent scrolling through my phone while waiting for it to finish). As much as I love a big, […]
Favorite Roasted Tomato & Leek Soup
If you’ve been following me on social media for any length of time you’ll know how obsessed I am with this tomato soup. Which is actually funny considering I’m not a fan of tomato soup in generally, especially creamy tomato soup (of which this is not). However I was originally turned on to #tomatosouplove with […]
Favorite Summer Shrimp & Vegetable Pasta
It’s hard to use the word “favorite” when talking about pasta. It’s like choosing a favorite child–impossible but sometimes you’re more into one than another (this is probably not how it works, I’m not a mother…but you know what I mean). When I first married my husband (who is from Italy and has very strong […]
Roasted Cauliflower with Cilantro Chimichurri
Chimichurri. I’m not sure exactly when I first had the garlicky, herb sauce but I know it was paired with a fabulous steak and a glass of red wine (odd how food memories work). I was hooked, and it quickly became a ‘must have’ when I see it on menus. The cilantro and parsley-packed sauce […]
Thai Basil, Lemongrass & Forbidden Rice Soup
Thai food combines all of my absolute favorite flavors: basil, kaffir lime, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, chilies, and coconut. Somehow this odd mix of bold flavors mixes together in a way that makes me salivate just thinking about them. After spending almost a month in Thailand I can confirm that everything from the high end restaurants […]
Lentil & Avocado Crunch Salad
My absolute favorite green has been (and possibly always will be) arugula, but sometimes the fine, delicate rocket leaves are just too wimpy next to heavier ingredients like lentils and dried fruit. Some salads need a strong crunch–enter cruciferous, crunchy veggies! I was inspired by a salad mix named Cruciferous Crunch at Trader Joe’s, but […]
15 Minute Meal: Mushroom, Black Bean & Mint Cous Cous
One of my biggest pet peeves is when people say they don’t have time to cook. As much as I love to occasionally spend entire Sundays pouring over cookbooks and experimenting with new recipes, as a general rule I do not like cooking extravagant meals. My weekday meal preparation never extends beyond 15-20 minutes, and […]
Roasted Acorn Squash with Maple & Sage
It seems every year we’re inundated with squash recipes and photos until Thanksgiving and after the late November smorgasbord is over, squash falls off the radar. The squash season is not over! In fact, December is a great time for delicious gourds…hence the name “winter squash.” The following recipe was a bit of an […]
Cranberry, Bourbon & Thyme Compote
Up until a few years ago, I really did not like cranberries. I’ve never been a big cranberry juice fan and I can honestly say that I never put cranberry sauce on my Thanksgiving plate until I started making this cranberry compote a few years ago (canned cranberry? Ugh, I can’t even.). After my tastebuds […]
Pumpkin, Butternut Squash & Sage Soup
I love soups. Love, love, love them. The best soups, to me, are those in which you throw everything you have on hand in a pot and hope for the best. And this soup recipe is exactly that–the best. Calling this “soup” is negligible since it was thick enough to be considered a “fall vegetable […]

Ben vuneto, bem vindo, welcome! I’m a dietitian nutritionist with a serious case of wanderlust. When I’m not exploring the world I love to explore in the kitchen with new ingredients and flavors from around the world.
