Savory Pesto + Roasted Red Pepper Beer Buns


I have been playing with this recipe for Diamond of California for quite some time. I wanted to start with a dough that was nice and yeasty, full of life. I wanted it to be easy: a dough we could through together on a Wednesday, stash in the fridge and then come Friday or Saturday we could quickly roll it out…

Cranberry Spice Breakfast Buns


I love entertaining around the holidays!! I say yes to everything and then I feel completely rushed and overbooked. Does anyone know what I’m talking about? So when I was creating these breakfast buns my number one priority was for them to taste delicious. Obviously. But it was also extremely important that they be quick + easy. Because we’re going…

I mean, I need every flipping bite teeming with taste and texture. We have that here. Right now. With this salad. We start with a base of freekah. Then we…

Easy Peasy Labneh


The thought of making cheese never entered my mind. In fact, making this type of cheese (labneh) seems somewhat fraudulent…like it really isn’t cheese…but it is…and it’s so amazingly luscious and delicious you will never not (love a double negative) have it in your fridge. At all times. It’s true, I like to dazzle people with food. I like it to…

Fresh Fig + Toasted Pecan Fall Salad


fresh fig + toasted pecan fall salad { ahhh } I can feel fall…it’s just a stone’s-through away. Things just sound different right now…maybe it’s the lack of fans blowing, AC’s humming and kids squealing down the street because they’re all blissfully back in school. It feels and sounds like the seasons are changing. Let’s not talk about the fact that the…

Bacon Cheddar Chive Petite Scones


Bacon Cheddar Chive Scones Anytime I can throw bacon, cheese and onions in something, I will. I wanted to dabble in savory scones for quite some time but just hadn’t found the time or occasion. So when I had the opportunity to cater a large lunch recently, I knew my time had come. I didn’t put these bacon cheddar chive…

Southwestern Black Bean Quinoa Burgers + Secret Sauce + Sweet Potato Fries


southwestern black bean quinoa burgers + secret sauce + sweet potato fries I’m a feast or famine kinda girl, if you haven’t figured that out. When it comes to food the words balance and restraint don’t really come to mind. At all. Ever. The motto is a little more, ‘if it feels good, do it.’ While I certainly enjoy this way life,…

{ tangy + crunchy pickled red onions }


tangy + crunchy pickled red onions { a little pick-me-up condiment } Without haste make these. They take about three seconds to throw together and you can shove them on everything. I made them for the slow cooker citrus tacos the other night and I’m in heaven. Put ‘em on a sandwich? Hell yeah. I’ve had them on salmon…just delightful. Ummm…

{ new year’s eve dinner }


classic braised short ribs + cheesy sweet potato quinoa As we near the end of eating season, it would be easy to throw in the towel. To just say, enough is enough. And, if I’m being completely honest here, I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that I’m getting pretty close to throwing in the towel. I’ve been eating…
