While a sushi salad using Italian ingredients may sound a bit odd at first, hear me out before you pass judgement. Unlike rolled sushi, this style of sushi is called chirashi sushi in Japan. Traditionally chirashi sushi is a pile of vinegared sushi rice with seasoned vegetables mixed in, and toppings such as fish, vegetables and herbs scattered on top (“chirashi” means “scattered”).

I’m the queen of buying a gigantic loaf of bread, using two or three slices and then realizing that I probably shouldn’t be eating bread at every single meal for the next week. In the past this has resulted in me being forced to throw away half loaves of bread, which pains me every time. To combat waste and my bread eating habit, I’ve started cubing up any excess bread I have lying around and sticking it in the freezer for moments when friends drop over on Saturday morning and I need to whip something up. My go-to solution is to beat a few eggs with milk, some fresh herbs and pour it over the frozen cubes of bread and I instantly have a strata—it’s awesome.

With spring finally here, our local vegetable market is chock full of young vegetables, and when I spotted a big bunch of baby fennel I couldn’t resist. With its sweet, tender stalk and robust anise flavor, fennel makes for a great salad when shaved, or a beautiful side dish when braised.

Have you jumped on the kefir bandwagon? I feel like kefir has been primarily a breakfast drink, promising all sorts of healthy benefits, much like yogurt. If you’re unfamiliar with kefir think of it like a probiotic-filled, fermented milk. The consistency is much thinner than yogurt, it’s almost like a cross between yogurt and milk.

As far as easy meals go, chicken teriyaki has one of the best effort to taste ratios I’ve ever encountered. It’s quick, and some magic happens when you reduce the three-ingredient sauce down to a caramel-like consistency.

I’m currently working on a project where I’m testing 10 to 12 recipes per day. So this means that most days require for me to eat two bites of a chocolate chip cookie, 1/2 of a Belgian waffle, four bites of pea pesto pasta, three spoonfuls of hot fudge with strawberry ice cream and many other taste tests of foods with high calorie counts. At the end of the day I’m tired and oddly hungry but I don’t want anything remotely heavy. I want light foods. And I want it to be easy, too.

Mac and Cheese is perhaps the quintessential kids food, but for me, my first experience with the iconic blue and orange box was after leaving home for college. The college years are a time for experimentation for most kids, and for me, I delved into the world of frozen dinners and sugary snacks that my mother would never buy. It didn’t take long for me to realize most of these things didn’t taste all that great, but Mac and Cheese was one of the things that stuck with me.

My favorite thing about spring is the balance between beautiful produce and slightly chilly weather. This calls for still keeping it cozy with foods like risotto. This risotto celebrates my favorite spring vegetable: asparagus. In addition to the asparagus are bright spring onions, spinach and tons and tons of Parmesan. I have trouble making risotto without adding tablespoon after tablespoon of butter but I somehow managed to restrain myself at 4 tablespoons—it’s tough!
