Cashew Dark Chocolate Cherry Cookies, GF and Vegan

I am sitting in a big fluffy hotel bed in New York right now and have to admit that I am feeling pretty awesome about it. I have magazines, my laptop, the remote, my phone (think I need much stimulation?) and my kindle spread out in a semi-circle around me. And I don’t have any […]

Southwestern Quinoa Salad

Hot and sweaty guys. Those are the best words I can use for this past weekend. Sweltering. We went to a parade on Saturday and I literally felt like a piece of meat cooking. Sizzling maybe. I’m not even kidding- it’s the only thing I can imagine that could be that hot. Then again, I […]

Fresh Herb Pesto Grilled Lamb Chops

I am so happy it’s the weekend. I have had the longest week and am just about finished with a major round of editing on my book. As much as I am excited about the book for a creative with ADD like me, sitting and editing is exceptionally difficult. I have to essentially run around […]

Carrot Ginger Soup

So I have been waiting to tell you what I was up to until I knew that I was actually up to it. Which is to say, I have taken on a new exercise pursuit, but didn’t want to tell you only to find that I had already abandoned it (um, that is my usual […]

Grilled Peach Kale Salad with Honey Almond Clusters, and Crispy Prosciutto

Happy Monday Ladies and Gents! We are coming off of a fun and exhausting weekend at a friends ranch in Eastern Washington.

Stuffed Squash Blossoms

So we have a lovely house guest here right now. Pete’s cousin from Greece has come to stay with us for a few weeks. He is 26 years old and this is his first time to the US. He speaks really pretty good English and is building his vocabulary by the day. Here are a […]

White Peach, Rose and Raspberry Sangria

It doesn’t get easier than this. It also doesn’t get more elegant or beautiful than this either- at least I don’t think it does!? You just dump all of this stuff into a pitcher and and Viola! Amazing. Showstopping. Swig worthy… This very pretty version of sangria also happens to be majorly multi-functional. It could […]

Fresh Mint Quinoa Salad with Edamame, Peas and Smoked Salmon

I have a bizarre obsession with this salad. It’s an airport salad. You heard me right. In the London Heathrow airport there is just a little pop up café that serves healthy food, and last year, I happened to grab this salad during a layover on the way to Greece. And then I freaked out […]

Melon, Fig and Prosciutto Salad

My family and I are back in Seattle, and as much as I LOVE New York, it is really so nice to be here. Seattle summers are spectacular actually. So sunny, so green and blue and bright and gorgeous. Our garden is insane. I will have to take some picture of how crazy the vegetable […]
