Summer squash- especially the vibrant yellow kind- is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite summer finds. I have it almost every day for the months of July and August because it’s so versatile and flavorful.

Summer Kale Caesar Salad with Corn & Tomato

Summer Kale Caesar Salad with Corn & Tomato

Maybe it’s just me, but I used to stay inside the box when it’s come to caesar salads. My variations would play around with the type of greens or the dressing. I don’t want to knock the classic, but why can’t we branch out from it? Why it is so often just served with greens […]

I can’t get enough of this summer version of vodka sauce in this Summer Creamy Tomato Pasta with Crab & Zucchini. It uses fresh tomatoes and has a secret ingredient to make it a bit lighter, but still creamy- any guesses on what it is? A combination of shallot, garlic, and anchovies gives it a […]

Crispy Zucchini & Red Lentil Turmeric Fritters

Crispy Zucchini & Red Lentil Turmeric Fritters

I’m gonna be honest: I’ve tried a lot of zucchini fritter recipes. A good zucchini fritter= SO GOOD. However, from my experience with multiple recipes, they often can be a bit temperamental, resulting in fritters that fall apart, have a more pancake-like texture, or suffer from watery zucchini… which also felt like it took an […]

For me, this salad is all about celebrating what’s at the market. It’s intentionally simple. There’s no salad dressing. There’s no bells or whistles. Just extra virgin olive oil and flaky salt.

Grilled Miso Butter Corn

Grilled Miso Butter Corn

Corn brings out some of my strongest childhood memories related to food. As I pulled the husks off of just a few ears for this recipe, the memories just flooded back.
