Lentil Pasta with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Spinach

Hey yall.  It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a recipe. I was away from my kitchen for two months while I was traveling and I wasn’t experimenting much during that time. Since I’ve been back in LA, things have been busy so I’ve been […]

Warm Salmon Salad with Za’atar, Kale, and Cauliflower

This recipe is not as much a recipe as it is a template. I literally do some variation of this dish whenever I find myself tired and without leftovers. It comes together really quickly assuming that you have a few ingredients on hand or you can […]

Cappellos Lasagna “Everything Bagel” Crackers

  Sometimes I find myself in serious need of something crunchy and carby. I generally don’t keep chips or crackers around but every now and then I get a craving that only something perfectly crispy and chip-like will satisfy. This recipe developed through one of […]

Hummus-like Garlic Beet Spread

This garlic beet spread has been giving me life over the past week. My tastebuds recently had the pleasure of indulging in these Swiss Chard Fritters. While I had initially planned to eating them by themselves, I realized that I actually had ingredients on hand […]

Braised Coconut Chickpeas with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Spinach

Flourless Scallion “Pancake”

Hey yall,  I had a request for this recipe on the gram so I thought I’d go ahead and post it. I call it my version of a scallion pancake. In reality, it’s eggs with some seasoning that kinda make you feel like you might […]

Slow-Cooker Chickpea Curry (Vegan)

For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been getting a ton of rain in LA. I would wager to say that it’s rained more in the last two weeks than it has my entire three and a half years living in this city. While it […]

Artichoke, Mushroom, and Caramelized Onion Frittata

Oh frittata. The dish that just keeps on giving.  Frittata is a dish that I always find myself coming back to. There’s so much to love about them. They’re super easy to make, versatile, and generally, delicious. They’re also great for no-hassle packed lunches.  Frittata […]

Slow-Cooker Applesauce

My slow-cooker and I made applesauce for the first time last night and it was kind of amazing… Applesauce is one of those snacks that immediately takes me back to childhood. To be real, I didn’t even eat a ton of applesauce when I was […]
