We have all observed a steady evolution of holiday side dishes over the past decades, and sweet potatoes are no exception to the rule.

Lemon Kale Pesto Fingerling Potatoes

November 8, 2019

The absolute versatility of fingerling potatoes makes them a steady staple in my kitchen. Their tender, thin skin makes prep work a snap as peeling is not required. I can easily slice them up for a soup or curry, steam them with a salt crust, or roast them with complementary seasonings. When fingerlings first hit…

Nutella Chia Parfait

Aug 11, 2019 | 4 Comments

I do realize that I am sharing a silly chia pudding recipe during peak veggie season. I get it. This wasn’t planned, but now that I am home I am missing a little taste of Europe. And what’s more European than Nutella, right? I gave up Nutella years ago when I changed my diet, but I still adore the combination of chocolate and hazelnut. If you are also a fan, you’ll find this recipe an easy fix for your cravings.…

A Tale of Two Sauces

Aug 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

I am a huge sauce fan, much to my husband’s indifference. Like many passionate cooks, I believe sauce elevates an everyday, simple meal to special status. When perfect seasonal produce is plentiful, I am drawn to create simple meals of grilled veggies, changing things up with a variety of sauces. I don’t mind eating zucchini or eggplant several times a week if I can create my own version every time. So when my dear friend and Ariege Gemmo Mom came…

That includes zucchini, aubergine, spinach and artichokes, to…

Georgian Spinach Pkhali

Jul 6, 2019 | 0 Comments

It was news to me that Georgian food is quite popular in Ukraine. I certainly didn’t want to miss an opportunity to try it. Sondro, the husband of my host Lena, is Georgian. So when she guided me to their neighborhood restaurant, I knew it would be good. Now to be clear, many of the most famous Georgian specialties involve bread, cheese and meat, but there is a surprising number of traditional foods that happen to be vegan. Lucky me!…
