January 7, 2018

Traveling to a new place is something to be excited for, and in my humble opinion, the snacks that you eat along the way to wherever you’re going ought to be just as anticipated.  Because it’s the New Year (and because we’re leaving for a nice little trip to Mexico in the morning,) I’ve spent most of the week whittling down the refrigerator and pantry post-holiday, in effort to organize myself for this next trip around the sun with a…

To-Die-For Coconut Popcorn

If when I say “popcorn,” you think of a plastic-wrapped packet meant to be zapped in the microwave, I am about to blow your mind: Making popcorn at home is way more satisfying, delicious and amazing-smelling than anything involving watching a bag fluff up…

(Almost Edible) Grapefruit + Rose Homemade Bath Salts

I’m completely a believer that edible gifts are better than store bought gifts any occasion, any day of the week. Baking something, making candy, putting up jams and pickles, making cooking salts all require a consideration of the tastes and best interests of the…

Carrot + Ricotta Tart w/ Fresh Herbs

It seems like mere moments ago I was in Los Angeles, still eating perfectly ripe tomatoes just picked from the vine along with persimmon so sweet they could be sliced against a thumb with juice running down your arm. Last week in Marfa, nothing was…

A Balancing Cinnamon-Spiced Carrot + Apple + Yam Tonic

Perhaps this is the balancing concoction you’ll need when you wake up AFTER Halloween tomorrow morning; a little unsteady after a big, spooky night? I’m not trying to sound like your mother – really. But that’s where my mind is at, returning home after…

Coconut Milk Ice Creams :: Golden Milk w/Ginger + Double Chocolate Cookie

I’ve been reading a lot about Chinese + Ayurvedic and herbal medicine lately, learning about adaptogenic herbs and the importance of amino-fying, alkalizing, mineralizing and rewilding our bodies. I came home from SO much travel earlier this summer determined to feel better in my…
