Chia Breakfast Bowl
I know many of you are always on the lookout for quick, healthy breakfast ideas , and I have a solid for you. This chia breakfast bowl has been in high rotation here for the past couple of weeks. It's summery and bright, and if you can get on board with chia seeds in general, it's a nice way to ...
Summer Melon Salad
I made this quick melon salad with the frog prince of melons - the piel de sapo . It has creamy, sweet, pale green flesh, and a blotched, pebbled green-yellow appearance. Piel de sapo means toad's skin. I bought mine heavy, with streaks of yellow edging out the green on one side - both indicators
Make this seed pâté when you want something in your refrigerator that can easily assimilate into just about any snack or meal. It's one of those things that can cozy up to chilaquiles, be slathered on a quesadilla, dolloped on a yoga bowl , enjoyed alongside (or in place of hummus ), spread on a ...
Printing a Cookbook
Settle in for a longer post than usual - this one covers some territory. I took a bit of a field trip a couple of weeks back. I went to see where my book was being printed because, more than anything else, I was curious. I had an idea of what happens when a cookbook goes to the printer, a general

Red Lentil Dumplings
I thought I'd jot off a quick post for those of you who like to see what I pack to eat when I travel. I have one more day in Hong Kong before flying back to San Francisco, and I'll be sad to leave. This trip has been far too quick - Hong Kong is an amazing city, and the people couldn't be more ...
Two days from now I'll be en route to Hong Kong. It's a quick trip to one of the world's great cities, and I'm excited to have quite an adventure planned. We'll be in Hong Kong, before driving to see Near & Far at the printer. It's a part of the bookmaking process I don't know as much about, and ...
Making A Cookbook
I wrote a post a while back about writing a cookbook proposal . It explained how I typically approach the first stages of a cookbook project. I thought I'd follow that up with a post primarily (but not entirely) focused on some of the details that have taken place in the time since - between ...
Caramelized Fennel on Herbed Polenta
Like many of you, I'm a fan of Sarah Britton. Her site My New Roots is a beautiful blend of inspired cooking and nutritional insight, punctuated with genuine positivity. I'm sitting here with her eagerly-awaited first cookbook - a substantial hardback filled with her signature plant-based recipes
