Sumac Chicken Salad with Labne Ranch

Finally booking up summer. Lots of visits back to Toronto, visits to NJ/NY, a short trip to Vegas to play the roulette table like a seventy year old woman, and adult summer camp. Yaaaasssssss. Adult summer camp to hike, swim in the lake, participate in color

Overnight Tahini Oats

I do not photograph well. It’s a disease. My eyeballs start crossing, my cheeks tighten, my lip contorts, and you can visibly see my muscles contract. If I cover half of my face or if I just don’t look at the camera, it turns out

Veggie Couscous in Coconut Miso Broth

  This is my favorite time of year. The weather mellows out and it’s time to start thinking about warming soups, roasting vegetables, braising meats and really just taking the time to cook slowly. During the sunny months, when the last thing you want to

I have a death wish. It’s the middle of summer and all I want to do is roast and bake. Tas and I try to keep the house at a glorious 77˚. Now the key word there is try. When the afternoon sun rolls around 

Roasted Moroccan Carrots

I can’t concentrate for my life right now. I have a strong love-hate relationship with working in coffee shops. Love having a change of scene. Love getting a 5 shot iced americano that I didn’t have to make. Love the atmosphere (most of the time).
