Wintertime Wonderful Lentil Soup

Wintertime Wonderful Lentil Soup

Sometimes, often times, I cook something that I think tastes good. And I have every intention of sharing it with you. But then…I forget to take photos. Or the photos I take are dark and shadowed (this typically doesn’t stop me, but maybe it should). Or there is no recipe and I can’t quite articulate … Continue reading

Dark Chocolate Sorbet Sundae

Dark Chocolate Sorbet Sundae

Good chocolate sorbet tastes like a slurry of frozen, bittersweet truffles. Without the milk fats that lend ice cream it’s heft, this sorbet is uninhibited, creamy, absurdly rich and pure…just like I’d imagine that chocolate waterfall at Willy Wonka’s factory would taste. I was inspired to make this recipe after I bought a pint of Double Rainbow Chocolate Sorbet at … Continue reading

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia…Breakfast Pudding

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia…Breakfast Pudding

I’m pretty sure I nearly gave myself diabetes last week. We were in Portland, where the folks are unabashedly friendly, drive sloooow, and know how to cook.

Roasted Sunchokes and Rainy Days

Roasted Sunchokes and Rainy Days

It was really rainy in San Francisco last week.  It was the kind of rain, dark and drizzly, that transported me back to growing up in Seattle. The sidewalks smelled good, musty and wet. I went on a few rainy runs up Bernal Hill just to be in it. I cranked up the oven on a few … Continue reading

The Happiest Chocolate Chip Cookie

The Happiest Chocolate Chip Cookie

Naturally sweet, easy and gluten-free – this is one happy cookie. Perfectly soft in the middle. Studded with chocolate. This cookie walks into a room and everyone smiles…classic Tollhouse sighs and sits on the couch in the corner. These cookies are made with almond meal and coconut flour, then maple syrup is added for sweetness. … Continue reading

MUAH! Lady Kisses Just For You.

MUAH! Lady Kisses Just For You.

Allow me to express my love by showering you with Lady Kisses. These sexy and small Italian wonders are called Baci di Dama, which translates to “Lady Kisses.” Apparently you can find the cookies all over Italy. I have no recollection of eating them while I was studying abroad in Florence during my junior year … Continue reading
