Grist & Toll Shortbread Cookies

Grist & Toll Shortbread Cookies

Recipe courtesy of Nan Kohler of Grist & Toll… I love shortbread cookies. It’s amazing how much more I love them now that I can make them with freshly milled flour. The flavors of fresh, whole grain flour really shine when there aren’t a lot of competing flavors and ingredients in the mix. This really [...]

Michelle’s Cole Slaw

Michelle’s Cole Slaw

Cabbages abound at local farmer’s markets right now. The high vitamin C and sulphur content in cabbage gives it strong detoxification properties. High in vitamins and fiber, low in cost, and dee-lish make it a winter winner at our house. This recipes forgoes the all-too-common-and-very-unhealthy ingredient of mayonnaise. Fear not! After you taste this cole [...]

Blanched Vegetables w/ Garlic-Thyme Aioli

Blanched Vegetables w/ Garlic-Thyme Aioli

This is inspired from one of my favorite meals that we eat during summer sessions at Quillisascut Farm School: a heaping platter of lightly blanched seasonal veggies with various homemade aioli for dipping. We pass the platter around, scooping up mounds of garlicky, spicy sauce, and the veggies act as a nutritious vehicle. Since I’m always [...]

The Art of the Muffin

The Art of the Muffin

I love reading cookbooks late at night oohing and ahhing over pictures of multi-layered cakes covered in homespun buttercream frosting and colorful sprinkles. It’s pastry porn and I love it. Fifty Shades of Cake Batter, right up in here. I have hundreds of saved recipes for  cakepops, confetti cakes, lattice pies, and berry tarts that I daydream of  making when I magically have time to [...]

Salsa Pizza

Salsa Pizza

It’s been a samba/salsa kinda week for me—both in the world of music (at a lively Latin jazz event at the Hollywood Bowl), and in the sweet and spicy notes of a perfect pizza recipe I conjured up in my kitchen! Salsa’s are used to compliment fish, chicken, tortilla chips—I’ve even seen a recipe to scoop [...]

Potato Leek Beet Soup

Potato Leek Beet Soup

Hello from Montreal! I just arrived here last night and am visiting my cousin before heading out on the rest of a 12-day long east coast adventure! It’s 25 degrees out right now, which is fun for this Southern California girl. I can actually think of winter as soup season again instead of craving summer [...]
