EGG-Y PASTA CUPS WITH ZUCCHINI, RICOTTA, AND BASIL

It’s Monday, and you’re probably at work right now thinking about how much you’d rather be eating lunch at home than at the office. Maybe you’re dreading going to the coffee shop downstairs because you don’t know how many more times you could possibly eat the same old chicken sandwich, or maybe you packed lunch from home but it’s a boring lettuce-tomato-cucumber salad, again. Or maybe you packed a gourmet lunch and you’re only reading this because Monday boredom. Whatever—I’m just going to talk to you abou ... Read More
      

BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH HAZELNUTS

When I was younger, I was one of those weird kids who loved eating their greens. The greener, the better. I would devour things like broccoli and spinach, and I really liked brussels sprouts too—something my family didn’t totally understand. I’ve come to appreciate them more as an adult; the complexity of their flavor, how their little green leaves can be crunchy or soft, how they change color and become more vibrant when cooked.

CLEMENTINE BREAKFAST PARFAIT – 3/1 SEASONAL CHALLENGE RECIPE

Even though I love January, I always get a little sad after the holidays. My social calendar inevitably becomes quieter, and everyone seems to get super busy again. Plus, no-one seems to be eating anything fun; there’s lots of oats and salads and broths, and nowhere near enough cake and pasta and buttery goodness of any kind (mmmmm butterrrrrr). But fret not!

SPAGHETTI WITH OIL, GARLIC, AND CHILI

I know I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks, but things have been busier than usual; the pace of life has shifted ever so slightly—things are happening faster, and things are just happening in general. I’ve taken time to absorb them all and just the enjoy the process. We’ve had news of new work and interesting projects, an ongoing search for a home, a birthday (with lots of cake), and the arrival of our beautiful baby nephew, Oliver. When life is pretty perfect—and when it demands that you be present—I don ... Read More
