Kale, Orange, Avocado salad with ginger lime dressing

I made this salad on a whim in one of the earlier days of quarantine; it wasn’t planned, it just sort of came together. The simple combination quickly became a regular staple as the stay at home order dragged on. I grew to look forward to my zingy and bright lunchtime treat. To some, it […]

Sticky toffee banana cake

If Sticky Toffee Pudding and Bananas Foster had a love child, this cake would be it! I get most creative in the kitchen when I have odds and ends I want to use up. In this case, it was a couple of very brown bananas and leftover dates from my Apricot + Date Sourdough Bread. The easy […]

Cinnamon apple bread pudding

Bread pudding always reminds me of my Grandpa. He loved big buffet dinners and would always finish his meal with a generous square of bread pudding. As a kid, I did everything he and Grandma did, so even though I thought bread pudding sounded weird, I too piled up my plate. Well, thank goodness I […]

on the quest for the perfect at home pizza

When I was growing up, every Friday was pizza night in our house. Honestly, every Friday without fail. Even though my mom is the Italian one, it was actually my dad’s borderline addiction to melty cheese and crispy crust that allowed us to indulge in our favorite weekly tradition — no complaints from me! Now […]

Milk and honey braided bread

I am so excited about this bread! It has a beautiful golden crust and an extra fluffy interior, thanks to the Tangzhong method (don’t be scared, it only sounds difficult). Its beautiful braid makes it a very impressive addition to your table that looks way more complicated than it actually is – which I LOVE. […]

Chocolate and Espresso Marbled Sourdough Banana Bread

I know, I know — everyone is baking banana bread during quarantine and everyone is baking sourdough during quarantine but I still wanted to add my own spin on the phenomenon by combining the two! If you hopped on the sourdough bandwagon and you are in need of discard recipes here is another to add […]


Do you like ooey-gooey chocolate chip cookies? Then you have come to the right spot. These cookies are intensely flavorful, perfectly textured, and addictive for vegans and non-vegans alike! Make these and thank me later ! No, I’m not a vegan, but I recently had to go on a doctor prescribed low-iodine diet (don’t worry, […]

Apricot and Date Sourdough

This simple sourdough has a fruity twist and is the perfect accompaniment to your favorite cheese! I love this bread for it’s simplicity and versatility! Don’t like dates? Replace them! Don’t like apricots? Replace them! The sourdough flavor is the perfect complement to the subtle sweetness provided by the dried fruit. It works equally well […]
