Broiled Saffron Dates


If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates. They take only slightly more effort to make than placing dates unadorned on a plate.

Events!


I've started to post some of the events and book signings I'll be doing in September and October related to the release of Near & Far.

Super Onigiri


Onigiri are so cute! I make these little on-the-go rice balls all the time with leftover rice, and whatever fillings and seasonings are convenient and on hand.

Thai Zucchini Soup


My intent here was to make a chilled, pureed, Thai curry soup. It would be summery and refreshing, and at the same time, strong with green curry flavor.

Favorites List (08.08.15)


And a few favorite things from around the house, pictured above clockwise from top left. Leaves & Flowers Rosella Mint I drink it cold-brewed & iced, fresh marjoram, white pine deodorant, natural fiber jewelry, dried flowers.

Summer Drink Ideas


I'm delivering a list of quenchers today. A quick summer drink round-up to keep you hydrated and full of good ingredients while enjoying the sunshine.

Chia Breakfast Bowl


I know many of you are always on the lookout for quick, healthy breakfast ideas, and I have a solid for you.

Summer Melon Salad


I made this quick melon salad with the frog prince of melons - the piel de sapo. It has creamy, sweet, pale green flesh, and a blotched, pebbled green-yellow appearance.

Seed Pâté


Make this seed pâté when you want something in your refrigerator that can easily assimilate into just about any snack or meal.

Printing a Cookbook

Settle in for a longer post than usual - this one covers some territory. I took a bit of a field trip a couple of weeks back.

Summer Berry Crisp


Heading into the holiday weekend, I thought I'd share this variation of my favorite summer berry crisp.

Iced Green Tea


There was a man behind me at the grocery store the other day. I was in the bulk section surrounded by large jars of dried herbs, tea blends, spices, and sea vegetables.

Red Lentil Dumplings


I thought I'd jot off a quick post for those of you who like to see what I pack to eat when I travel.

Cherry Smoothie


Two days from now I'll be en route to Hong Kong. It's a quick trip to one of the world's great cities, and I'm excited to have quite an adventure planned.

Making A Cookbook


I wrote a post a while back about writing a cookbook proposal. It explained how I typically approach the first stages of a cookbook project.

Caramelized Fennel on Herbed Polenta


Like many of you, I'm a fan of Sarah Britton. Her site My New Roots is a beautiful blend of inspired cooking and nutritional insight, punctuated with genuine positivity.

Turmeric Cashews


Some fascinating emails have come through my in-box over the past decade. One example arrived a couple of months ago from Erica Sonnenburg.

Superfood Tapenade


I cook a lot of simple meals. The type of meals California cooks occasionally get mocked for. You know the equation - a great ingredient sautéed with local olive oil and seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper.

Lazy Day Peanut Noodle Salad


I've been trying to cook from the archives a bit lately. There are so many recipes that I'll cook on repeat for months, and then neglect when a new favorite makes an appearance.

A Few Words on How to Cook Artichokes


If you're going to invest the time into cooking artichokes, you want them to be fantastic. In the spring I tend to cook artichokes once or twice a week, and although the process takes time and attention, I can't help myself.
