At the beginning of summer, one of Mike’s favorite coworkers moved to Hawaii.

(It was a sad day when we said goodbye to her, not only because she was funny and sweet and smart, but also because she makes the best brownies I’ve ever put into my mouth. She’s like some kind of evil brownie magician because I swear her recipe is irreplicable despite my 25 pathetic attempts.)

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence

Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence 1

If you’re looking for a new twist on a classic favorite side dish, Creamy Dijon Potato Salad with Herbes de Provence is the answer! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that when Mike and I were in Paris there was no holds barred on things like bread and cheese (come on, it’s Paris). We tried to make up for it by walking seven to ten miles a day (and that wasn’t even our sole means of transportation; we typically took the Metro three or four times a day too! What can I say? Paris is big and there’s a lot to do). And […]...

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Like spring cleaning for the house, I know quite a few people who do an annual detox every spring. I’ve done one for the past three years, usually around the beginning of April, but this year I’m a little late (yeah, oops). Being in Kuwait and having the weather already feel like the hottest part of summer back home, it just doesn’t feel like it’s time for a spring detox....

Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa

Garlicky Red Quinoa Patties with Mango Black Bean Salsa Recipe 1

One of the perks of living in Florida is that when fruit trees bear fruit, people suddenly have more than they know what do with, and the wealth inevitably gets shared. I remember waking up to a huge box of mangos on my front porch one morning when I lived there during law school… One of my friend’s parents’ had a mango tree in their backyard (along with a grapefruit tree, those lucky ducks) and I was absolutely certain the fruit was from her family (who also frequently dropped off oranges and avocados that they got from a friend who also had fruit trees)....

Apple-Walnut Rainbow Chard Salad

Apple-Walnut Rainbow Chard Salad Recipe 1

I swear, if you hop backwards 11 times facinthe sunset every Sunday, you won’t be sick all week!, a friend told me. Hmm…I guess I can see how that would work, I replied with a smile on my face. (Not so much, really, but who am I to judge?) Anyway, I have my own ideas too…I try not to skip workouts (because they clean out my lungs) and I religiously take a Vitamin C pill every day....

Spicy Blue Cheese Celery Slaw

When I was younger I hated celery, of all things. As the perfect vessel for things like peanut butter, cream cheese, or French onion dip, celery is such an odd vegetable to hate on. But I wouldn’t have been caught dead munching a celery stick…not even along with a chicken wing and blue cheese for dipping....

Bulgur Wheat Salad with Pomegranate + Walnut

DSC_3620(small)

The first time I made this salad was last summer for a cookout at my parents’ house before Mike and I left for Kuwait. I wanted to bring a hearty salad, and I was trying to clean out my pantry and fridge when I found a bag of bulgur wheat in the pantry and a bottle of pomegranate molasses in the fridge. For some reason I thought combining the two in one dish was the best idea ever. As strange as this pairing might sound, it is pretty fantastic....
