Kale salad with za’atar cauliflower & avocado-tahini dressing

Well, that’s a mouthful. (Literally and figuratively, hehe food jokes.) However, I feel a lengthy name is necessary for this salad because every part is equally important. The za’atar cauliflower is so addictive you could eat it on its own, and the avocado-tahini dressing is a total show-stopper. This is one of those lunches you prep the…

Argentine reminiscing and a kale salad

Look out, New York City! We’re back from our adventures in South America. I wish I could say I’m completely relaxed and at ease with the world but something about coming back to snow, slush, freezing temperatures and the realities of a desk job has the the effect of making vacation seem extremely far away….

Sweet, spicy & roasted kale salad

Guyyyys I made a salad for lunch this week and it wasn’t terrible! What a great way to start a post, right? But actually this salad is great. Because it turns out the key to making a great salad is asking yourself what kinds of things you like to eat and putting them together in…

Fried goat cheese & strawberry salad

Sorry not sorry) I recently made a life-changing discovery: I can eat goat cheese. It’s wonderful, and true! Goat cheese has low levels of lactose meaning I can actually consume it in small-ish quantities….

Citrus, date and marcona almond salad

So here’s the thing. I have a food blog and ostensibly like to cook but the truth is, the idea of feeding myself 3 meals a day Monday-Friday overwhelms me. I love good food and I love to cook good food but cooking good food (and now writing about cooking good food) while also working…
