Pumpkin Spice Kettle Corn

Pumpkin Spice Kettle Corn

I’m pretty sure the first time I had kettle corn, my family and I were wondering through a farmer’s market in Texas. A lovely, caramel smell wafted through the air and we discovered a portly, cowboy-hat-wearing gentleman, making kettle corn in a giant cast iron vat. After we sought him out week after week for […]

Thai Curry Soup with Tofu

thai curry soup with tofu

For as much as I love to cook, there are still plenty of days when I’m too tired, don’t have any groceries, or have ran out of time. In these situations, my boyfriend and I order Thai food from a tiny, hole-in-the-wall restaurant around the corner. He loves the chicken curry, and while the flavor […]

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Southwestern Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Making something out of nothing is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. And that is exactly what these southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes are. I had a sparse fridge and a growling stomach, so out of necessity, started throwing things together. My mom calls this dish “a meal in a peel,” which […]

The Garden Tart

I feel like the majority of my recipes are quick, easy, and require minimal effort to throw together. But every once in a while I like to do a show stopper, a dish worthy of the Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table. The garden tart is one of those. It is fiddly, time-consuming, and has many […]

Ginger Turmeric Wellness Shot

“Hooray, it’s flu season!” said no one EVER. However, since the inevitable coughs, sniffles, shivers and flues are upon us, we may as well fight back. I take vitamin C everyday, but that doesn’t seem to be enough when I’m in a room full of hacking, sneezing bodies. Having already had a bought of a […]

Hearty Pumpkin Chickpea Stew

Yesterday morning I woke up to a light drizzle. It only lasted thirty more minutes, but in Los Angeles, this is BIG NEWS. Immediately I started thinking about sweaters, cozy socks, and heart-warming dinners. And thus this hearty pumpkin chickpea stew was born. “Come,” said the Wind to the Leaves one day. “Come over the […]

Tangy Tofu Buddha Bowls

A typical dinner for me usually consists of some sort of grain, a bunch of veggies, and a protein, all of which are in this recipe for tangy tofu buddha bowls. I’ve been eating like this for a while now, and I sleep well, wake up feeling refreshed, without bloating. I spend a LOT of […]

Flourless Protein Pumpkin Spice Bars

It has arrived. Pumpkin spice in all its glory. I know everyone tends to go a bit bonkers for their pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cake, the list is endless, and for good reason. These flourless protein pumpkin spice bars are heaven in your mouth, and these fall flavors are the first […]

Gluten Free Summer Squash Tortillas

Gluten Free Summer Squash Tortillas

Towards the end of summer, I feel swamped by all the zucchini and yellow squash. But because they are such versatile veggies, I end up eating them every night, prepared in different ways. My mom sent me a recipe for Zucchini Tortillas a few weeks ago and I felt intimidated; it seemed time consuming, used […]

Gluten Free Applesauce Waffles

Today felt like a real fall day here in Los Angeles. It was about 75 degrees and cloudy and I woke up craving applesauce. Specifically my Grandma Colleen’s Applesauce Cake. But while it’s my favorite cake, it’s also WAY to sugary for me to have as my first meal of the day. So I scoured my […]
