Bean Bake with Greens and Turnips

My first experience with turnips didn’t come until I joined the CSA. In fact, it was my first day on the farm and I was sent home with gorgeous Hakurei turnips. Of course, these were only one variety of turnips but over the years, I’ve experimented with most. Each turnip has a lovely, fairly mellow [...]

Halloumi Burrito Bowl with Roasted Potatoes and Guacamole

I find that most of the best recipes I create are sheer happenstance, a coming together of odds and ends in my kitchen. A few weeks back, I whipped together some of these halloumi bowls with leftover potatoes from the breakfast enchiladas, the last lonely avocado in the refrigerator, and the halloumi I’d been hoarding [...]

Curry Chickpea Burgers with Coconut Cabbage Slaw

This recipe is in partnership with Nugget Markets. See below for more details. Any time I move or travel some place, grocery stores are usually first on my list to find. I have a pretty high standard and it’s rare that a store has everything I need. I’m the type of person that usually goes [...]

Roasted Carrot Multigrain Pilaf with Pepita Pesto

I’m learning that one of the greatest cooking challenges I’ve faced is one that feels like it shouldn’t be that hard: cooking for my family. My husband is not vegetarian and while my toddler will try almost anything, he’s still a toddler. I have this balance of working with everyone’s preferences to create a solid [...]

Soba Noodle Salad with Cabbage and Kohlrabi

After moving to California, I found myself jumping into summer produce faster than I would have in the midwest. The beginning of June brings zucchini followed shortly by sweet corn and tomatoes. However, there’s so much good spring/early summer produce that I miss because let’s face it- I’d make everything out of fresh summer tomatoes [...]

Broccoli Melt with Fried Egg

This recipe is in partnership with California Olive Ranch. See below for more details. There are certain combinations I’ve never found appealing. One of which is broccoli on a grilled cheese sandwich. I recently had one of these sandwiches (it was the only vegetarian option on a menu that sounded decent). So I ordered it [...]
