A Vegan Apple + Walnut Spice Cake for Everyone

I won’t soon forget the first time I ever nailed my vegan olive oil cake recipe; it was one of the first things I baked after moving back to Colorado from San Francisco. It was rosemary-scented and chocolate-studded, and it popped out of the…

Roasted Pumpkin + Coconut Soup w/Turmeric + Ginger

I don’t remember how I came to making this soup, but I’m certain that it was a spark of laziness. I’d roasted a pumpkin, hadn’t thought about making stock, pulled together a few random liquids from the pantry and refrigerator. I didn’t have much…

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…

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…

The Strawberry Popsicles of My Dreams

Memories and experiences – especially from unexpected places – are my favorite ingredients in any recipe. I don’t know exactly what to call the state of being that was sitting on the porch, eating a strawberry popsicle as a kid. But it’s this experience…

Chicory and Nori Salad w/Avocado + Hazelnuts

Sometimes, the little inconsistencies of travel are what fuel my curiosity and makes travel exciting and fun. In Italy, “where will I find coffee?”  In Turkey, “how do I order a pastry?”  In Japan, “is this toothpaste or spackling for the tub?”  But sometimes,…

Double Vanilla (Vegan!) Marshmallows for Campfires

The little things are really big things. I’m not sure that this would have been the takeaway for the onlooker, peeking over my shoulder at Rapha Rides last weekend, but it was exactly what came to mind when I finally settled into my seat…

A Green Smoothie for Non-Smoothie People

I tried following “The Master Cleanse” when I was teaching and studying yoga in Asia, egged on my colleagues who had “felt the clarity of detoxification” by subsisting on water, cayenne, maple syrup and lemon alone for weeks on end. The first hours went…
