Bloody Mary Popcorn
This is what happens when popcorn meets the flavors of a Bloody Mary cocktail. The magic is a simple-but-strong spice blend made from tomato, oregano, a bit of citrus, oregano, and celery. And before we get to the recipe, I know the main question I'm going to get is about sourcing tomato powder. ...
Using your Underutilized Steamer
From what I can tell, steaming is a fantastic, under-utilized cooking technique. There are a number of ways to go about steaming - bamboo baskets, plastic microwave steamers (I'm not a fan of heated plastic), and ceramic steamers. I find myself using steam as a cooking technique increasingly for a
Grab & Go Chia Yogurt Parfait
This is a favorite grab-and-go breakfast. You stir a generous spoonful of chia seeds into vanilla-spiked yogurt, and then top everything off with smashed berries, and a bit of something crunchy - toasted nuts or popped quinoa are both great options. It takes two minutes tops. The chia seeds plump
Yogurt Love: A Dozen Favorite Recipes
I thought I'd highlight one of the ingredients I reach for most often. Yogurt isn't just for breakfast or a quick snack; it has limitless possibilities. If you wrap it in cheesecloth and let it drain, you'll end up with creamy, delicious yogurt cheese (labneh), to which you can add herbs, spices,
I posted a photo to Instagram over the weekend. A snapshot of a catch-all stretch of counter space, where I tend to keep recipe clippings, a journal, receipts, and snacks that I can grab on my way out the door. In the aforementioned photo there was a jar filled with turmeric popcorn, and a few of

Vitamin C Tea Blend
Many of you have seen my spice drawer - always in some state of disarray. I also have another area - filled with ingredients I use to make herbal tea blends. Dozens of little white bags filled with chamomile, hibiscus, dried nettles, citrus peels, ginger and the like. Inviting a spectrum of teas ...
Savory Do-It-Yourself Power Bars
Those of you who have been readers for a stretch know how much I love a homemade travel snack. I went on an intense 48 hour sourcing trip last week and posted a photo to Instagram of the Do-It-Yourself Power Bars I made to take with me. They were based on the recipe I published years ago in Super
At the Studio: Coconut Yellow Split Pea Soup
It might be incredibly hot where you live right now, and, if that's the case, I apologize for posting a soup recipe. But its one I love, and it's the sort of thing I like to take for lunch at the studio . Also, I live in San Francisco, and it's nearly always sweater weather - 58F. The soup: the ...
Smash-and-Toss Roasted Potato Salad
I'll kick this off by saying, this is a roasted potato salad with a secret weapon ingredient. Or, if you prefer, a wild card. Pickled sushi ginger. It sounds odd, but I'm going to argue that it works. Here's what's happening. I took the tiniest, little baby potatoes I could find, and threw them in
