Paleo Grain-Free "Nut-Nola"

Where to begin? Grad school, traveling, up and moving myself cross country. Then settling into a new job in a new state... and house hunting... House buying. House maintaining. With a kitchen that just does not inspire me to do anything but assemble and crack open wine.

Muhammara (Say WHAAT?!)
Repeat after me... Moo-Ha-Mar-A! What might you ask is this? It is basically a red pepper dip from Aleppo, Syria. My first encounter with muhammara was when I was working in the test kitchen at Saveur Magazine, and I got to lo and behold first test a recipe...

Banana-Nut Vanilla Chia Breakfast Pudding
As a child, I LOVED 'fish eyes and glue' - tapioca pudding for the rest of you... Fast forward 28 years, and I'm dairy-free (for the most part). So tapioca pudding and I haven't partied together in quite a while. Luckily, I discovered chia seeds. I've been ...

These are one of my all-time favorite snacks... slash glam cheese platter accompaniments, plus a great gift for the holidays. And they're easy to make -- healthy -- AND easy to eat! I make two versions of these -- one with herbs de Provence. The other with a spicy cayenne-cumin-curry mix.

Marcella Hazan - Comfort Food for All
From FoodinItaly.org The world lost a magnificent woman yesterday. Marcella Hazan was a woman after my own heart. A biologist by training (like me, er, ecologist here?), she forever changed how we all at home cooked, and cooked Italian dishes, for sure. She...

Banana-Peanut Butter-Almond-Coconut Smoothie
This should be a crime. It's relatively healthy, but so calorie packed with substance (rather than those sugar- and dairy-filled milkshakes you might get at your local fast food joint). And SO good. I've recently been restricted to a liquid diet. Not all as...
This should be a crime. It's relatively healthy, but so calorie packed with substance (rather than those sugar- and dairy-filled milkshakes you might get at your local fast food joint). And SO good. I've recently been restricted to a liquid diet. Not all as fun as you might think.

Easy Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
And... more radio silence from me. It's been a busy month! I returned from an epic summer along the Wasatch Front and decompressed along ...
While the recipes may wane with classes underway, I'll try to post a couple of times a month. First up is one of the wild, new flavors I encountered this summer: Roasted Tomatillo Salsa. I should preface this with a) I've never willingly bought tomatillos and b) never really cooked with them.
