Roasted Chili-Garlic Endive
Normally my biweekly CSA delivery comes with a big head or two of lettuce that we use for our regular lunch salads. This week, I received a little note in my box saying they ran out of lettuce and were giving me curly endive (also known as chicory) instead....

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce
I am kind of obsessed with salty-sweet combinations--salted caramel being the ultimate sweet treat of late for me. So I decided I might as well learn how to make it myself! I found great instructions from Sally's Baking Addiction that use 4 simple ingredien...

Dark Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread
Have you ever had chocolate chips in your banana bread? If not, you're really missing out. The first time I mentioned adding chocolate to banana bread to my husband (then boyfriend), he thought I was nuts and that it sounded gross. But then he tasted his fi...

Things to Do in Southern California: The Getty Villa
A couple of weekends ago, the need to get out of the house struck (as it so often does now that I'm back working from home!). When we visited the Getty Center a little over a year ago, we learned that before the larger museum in Los Angeles was built, J. Pa...

Coconut Ginger Rice
Like many people, we're trying to get back on track with healthier eating in this first month of the new year. I feel like we do pretty well most of the year, but those few weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas (well, let's be honest - through New Year's...

Eating the Seasons: Kale and Sausage Soup
I recently joined a CSA here in Southern California. I love the concept of a CSA because it really encourages you to eat locally and seasonally. Unlike the CSA I belonged to back in Massachusetts, where I went to the farm myself and picked out what I wanted...

Lemon Berry Overnight Oatmeal {Gluten-Free}
There are a ton of overnight oatmeal recipes out there. The basic recipe involves using oats, milk, chia seeds and some sort of sweet flavoring. I've tried all kinds of versions using things like banana, honey, strawberry jam, fresh blueberries and more. Bu...

These cookies were a hit at book club last night!
Are you into the coconut oil craze? Until recently, I'd heard a lot about coconut oil--especially from the Paleo crowd--but never used it myself. But a few weeks ago my husband when grocery shopping with me (a rarity, and thi...

It's citrus season here in Southern California, and it has been another banner year for our key lime tree. For the last 3 weekends in a row, I've gone out to "pick a few limes" and come back in with a big bowl full like this: (Did you know key limes turn ye...

Slow Cooker Asian BBQ Chicken
For as much as I love my slow cooker, you'd think I'd use it more. But tucked away in a cabinet, sometimes I just forget it's there. But with this recipe, I think I'll be bringing it out more often from now on! I was looking for a new way to cook chicken th...

Wine Cork Christmas Trees--A Step-by-Step Tutorial
I have a confession: I like wine. A lot. And a few years ago, when my husband brought home a big glass jar, I started putting my wine corks in there, thinking it would be a cute decoration. Well, now that "decoration" has started to overflow: So when I was ...
