Spiced Chickpea Soup w/Quinoa + Tomato

There are two kinds of days around here; the Great Lunch days, and the Not-As-Great Lunch days. The Not-as-Great-Lunch days are those when I find myself up to my eyeballs in pastries or recipe tests and I can’t find the green smoothie I’m sipping…

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…

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,…

Favorite Peanut Sauce for Fresh Thai Rice Salad

We’ve had a REALLY hot summer in Colorado, which means that cooking has been all about throwing something together in a way that skirts around the oven or the stove. This has made any and all efforts to clean out the cabinets a bit…

Miso + Maple Chia-Oatmeal Bowls

I spent a good bit of time bouncing around Colorado last week w/this crew, riding bicycles, cooking food/eating food and it wasn’t until I was riding in the car back from Aspen, with the ridiculously beautiful blue sky stretched as far as I could…

Roasted Cherry Tomato Salad for Lunch

I spent all day in the kitchen today, cooking, taking photographs, making notes. Washing cookie dough or olive oil or fruit juice off my hands again and again so that I could type out thoughts on the computer or scribble things in my notebooks,…

Cambodian Lemongrass Soup

Most days in Boulder are glorious now; sunny, almost too warm to wear socks and shoes, and gone is the chill that requires soup for dinner. So really, the only reason to whip up this favorite dish of ours is that I can ride…

Roasted Mushroom + Gorgonzola Farro Bowl

Though the weather changes along with my inspirations, our geographical locations and even my perceptions of what seems “easy” or “on-hand” one thing doesn’t around here; we’re one-pot, big bowl/big-salad-as-a-meal people. This was confirmed by our overwhelming excitement for the most amazing solid walnut bowl…
