Creamy Orange Herb Cashew Dressing

Creamy Orange Herb Cashew Dressing

Now that the weather is finally warming up, salads have started to take center stage on my table. But I will be the first to admit: I’m not a huge fan of them! I find salad to be kind of boring, tedious, and more of a chore than anything else. Until I created this creamy […]

Baked White Bean “Meatballs”

Baked White Bean “Meatballs”

It’s mid-January, and if you’re like me, you’ve likely been on the meal-prep train for the past few weeks. I whipped up these baked white bean “meatballs”—I wish there was a better word, but there isn’t, hence the quotes—and woah, SO GOOD. So easy, so much flavor, and an all-around crowd pleaser.

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans (Instant Pot Friendly)

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans

For years I’ve heard about Britain’s obsession with beans on toast, beans on baked potatoes, beans on everything! I’ve never really understood it, American baked beans are sooo sweet, I can barely eat a couple spoonfuls. But then I thought, what if they weren’t so sweet? What if they were tomato-y, and only slightly sweet, […]

Quick Lemon Parsley Pasta

Quick Lemon Parsley Pasta

When I say this quick lemon parsley pasta comes together fast, I mean FAST. While waiting for the pasta water to boil, I prepped all the ingredients, then did some laundry, checked my email, and washed some dishes. And since I used chickpea linguine from Banza, this meal had enough protein for me to feel […]

20 Minute Green Goddess Pasta

20 Minute Green Goddess Pasta

When it rains it pours, as the saying goes. Yesterday I had a quiet day of baking, making soup, and learning lines for an audition. Today I have three back to back auditions and 12 pages to memorize in a couple hours. So, I’m taking deep breaths and making this 20 minute green goddess pasta […]

Roasted Veggie Sheet Pan Salad

Roasted Veggie Sheet Pan Salad

Let me tell you about this roasted veggie sheet pan salad, and why you’ll want to be making it at least once a week. First of all, it’s very hands off, but still has tons of flavor, texture, and nutrients, which on busy nights is always a win. As advertised, most of the ingredients are […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Today finally feels like fall in Los Angeles, it’s 70 degrees, cloudy, and the perfect day for this roasted butternut squash soup. (You may think I’m being facetious, but my family knows I’m dead serious, and don’t question that I’m wearing three layers and fuzzy socks around the house. Temperature is relative, ok?)

Toasted Garlic and Lemon Hummus

Toasted Garlic and Lemon Hummus

Hummus is one of those foods, that once you’ve made it from scratch, you can never buy the store-bought kind again. First of all, because it is super easy, inexpensive, and completely customizable. And second, because the flavors you can achieve at home are really unbelievable. This toasted garlic and lemon hummus totally surprised me […]

Zucchini Pizza Crust

Zucchini Pizza Crust

I have been making versions of this zucchini pizza crust for the past 4 years or so. And while it has evolved over the years, it is still one of my favorite ways to cook zucchini in the summer. Before we get too far along, I should tell you, this is NOT a flour-based, chewy, […]

Garlic Ginger Stir Fry

Garlic Ginger Stir Fry

This past November, my best friend and I traveled around Thailand. It was everything and more than I had expected; the pictures truly don’t do it justice, and the food! Oh my, the food. There was so much texture, depth of flavor, and variety. My recipe for this garlic ginger stir fry is by no […]
