Get Ready for Seasonal Changes with Spring Salad

Spring Salad recipe

With spring just weeks away, I couldn’t resist the urge to do a salad. Not the tuber and sea vegetable salads I’ve been subsisting on, but a bonified green salad.

Make Your Own S’mores Pop Tarts

S'mores Pop Tarts recipe

My childhood wasn’t filled with pop tarts, sugary cereals or game consoles, unfortunately. Instead, it was chock-full with what I like to refer to as hippie-dippie food; there was lots of rice milk, fresh fruit that my mom liked to call dessert, and of course, Latin food. It was a strange combo but I wouldn’t have it any other way. And television? It was strictly monitored, if not nearly prohibited. I think not having fun food and television resulted in an adult who loves nothing more than making homemade pop tarts while watching trashy television.

Experiment with Seafood: Skate with Browned Butter

Skate is one of those oddities most people see in the seafood case and marvel at the wing-like fillets, but would never consider buying; I used to be one of those people. That all changed one night a number of years ago, after a waiter recommended the skate on their menu. Despite looking like something out of a sci-fi horror film, it was delicious.

The Oscars are on Sunday. Are you having a party? A get-together? I’m throwing my boyfriend a birthday BBQ during the day, which is actually taking me a good amount of work, so I’m planning on changing into some pajamas and hanging out at home for the big show. I love eating popcorn with anything remotely movie-related. I think we all do.

Spring is still about a month away, but green things are starting to pop up in the produce aisle and this week my grocery store has a big display of rapini (a.k.a. broccoli rabe). While I love this green simply steamed, or sauteed with a bit of garlic, it also makes for a stunning pasta.

Broccoli and Cheese Tartine: Simple, Comforting, and Filling

I’m not a big shopper. I might be one of the only women on the planet who despises shopping! It’s mainly because in Los Angeles shopping feels like a gigantic hassle. There are large parking garages, a ticket one must get validated and way too many people everywhere. There’s an outside mall that tends to be a one-stop shop for me and luckily this outside mall also houses one of my favorite bakeries in Los Angeles called Short Cake.

Make Baked Eggs in Creamed Spinach

Baked Eggs in Creamed Spinach recipe

Like spaghetti and meatballs, this tasty brunch entree is the serendipitous coupling of two dishes: baked eggs and creamed spinach. The eggs gently poach in a well of hot creamy spinach until the whites are just set and the yolks thicken into a golden sauce.

Soothe Winter Blues with Kale, Barley, and Lentil Soup

Kale, Barley, and Lentil Soup recipe

I’m a soup-making fiend right now. Perhaps it’s because at the start of January I was smart, took those few quiet days at the beginning of the year to stock my pantry with lots and lots of beans. While most dried bean-preparation requires forethought (like soaking them the night before), lentils do not. Having these beautiful red lentils in my cabinet have yielded delicious soup after delicious soup. All are able to be whipped up at a moment’s notice.
