Zucchini Ribbon and Arugula Tartine

Bonjour! As I write this post I am sitting in a huge window filled room looking out onto a quaint street in Paris while visiting our friends Brianne and Todd.  We have been spending our days eating amazing pastries and crusty breads while sipping on […]

Fig and Preserved Lemon Pizza

Fig and Preserved Lemon Pizza

We love figs.  We also love lemon. And we definitely love pizza, so we decided to create one that incorporated these distinctive ingredients.  We opted to use balsamic reduction and a creamy cashew cheese sauce to give it a savory element to contrast the sweet […]

Garlic and Chanterelle Mushroom Pappardelle

Garlic and Chanterelle Mushroom Pappardelle

One of the things that make the late summer months so great is the abundance of mushrooms. I normally would shy away from fresh mushrooms at farmers markets or store, thinking they were too delicate and hard to make. I have since learned that they […]

Brie Wrap

Brie Wrap

This wrap is another example of finding inspiration from delicious restaurants around NYC.  There was a little corner deli near the school that I used to teach at that I loved walking to and either getting a fresh sandwich, wrap, or maybe a soup during […]

Fig and Raspberry Vodka Spritzer

Fig and Raspberry Vodka Spritzer

It’s Friday!  And starting today we will include a new feature on our site called Fun Drink Friday!!!  We thought this might be an exciting idea because we love to have a drink periodically, especially on Friday and I’m sure many people can relate.  For […]

Fresh Summer Panzanella

Fresh Summer Panzanella

Sometimes you just need to use things up.  Plain and simple.  That happens quite frequently as a vegetarian.  We always have lots of vegetables in our fridge and sometimes we have to be creative so food doesn’t go to waste.  This time though, it wasn’t […]

Lavender Ice Cream with Grilled Peaches

Lavender Ice Cream with Grilled Peaches

It doesn’t happen often, but once in a while Alissa and I get a weekday off together. This typically happens in the summer and lucky for us it was a Monday so the Union Square Farmers Market was open.  We decided to make the trip. […]

Vegan Squash Blossom Galettes

Vegan Squash Blossom Galettes

I have always dreamed of visiting Paris.  I’m sure almost every single person has the same dream… but growing up in Eastern Montana with two teacher parents didn’t provide the opportunity for a lot of travel outside of the U.S.  We did travel often in […]
