Salmon with Spinach

I haven’t shared a recipe for a while. As you know, I try to keep things relatively simple in the kitchen.  Easy and healthy are my goals these days. Last night, I made this — and it is defiantly going to be added into my repertoire of go-to recipes.   I preheated the oven to […]


If I could have anything for breakfast, it would probably be toast.  I haven’t cut bread out of my life completely, but instead I have been really focusing on making a breakfast that keeps me filled and satisfied for hours.  This idea might sound strange, but I assure you that it’s really tasty.  Simply cut […]


Recently, I have been enjoying incorporating shrimp into my diet.  Tasty, filling and a low calorie option!  I composed this salad together recently with butter lettuce, watermelon radishes, avocados, blanched green beans and cherry tomatoes.  I made a vinaigrette with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and a shallot.  I thought that the flavors […]


The weather has cooled down a bit and I was trying to come up with a new seasonal salad. This one is rather easy to whip together and the flavors pair quite nicely together.   Autumn salad Fresh mint Pomegranate Fennel (2 bulbs) Lemon Garlic clove Salt and Pepper Olive oil   Take the fennel […]

Kale, etc.

  Remember how I said was only was sharing three photos from my trip to Maine?  Well, I lied. This was also a favorite – but needed a post of its own. Kale. I know I have mentioned it more than a few times.  It is certainly the veggie of the moment.  But this stopped […]

Practice Makes Perfect

Sometimes I make recipes that don’t turn out.  This was the case a few weeks ago. I attempted to make crepes for dinner one night.  I’m not really sure what went wrong, but let’s just say that the end result wasn’t anything that resembled a crepe. I’m happy that I tried again this weekend.  Turns […]

End of Summer Salad

Tomatoes are one of my favorite things about summer.  With the season slowly coming to an end, it seems like I’m trying to incorporate them into just about every meal. This salad was so easy and flavorful.  The crunch of the cucumber and the sweetness of the tomatoes and the salty of the feta with […]

Hail Caesar

  Kale certainly seems to be the vegetable of the moment.   If I had known, I would have gotten in on the action and started a farm! I have to admit that I have had kale in just about every which way you can imagine.  So I am always excited when I figure out […]

Guacamole Hummus

Can’t decide between hummus and guacamole?  Why not have both? Last weekend I whipped up a batch of it and it was gone before I knew it. Guacamole Hummus 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 2 handfuls of fresh cilantro 1 garlic clove 1 ripe avocado 2 tablespoons water 3 tablespoons- extra- virgin olive oil […]

Peach Gazpacho

Last week I shared my table settings for my Supper Club dinner party, so this week- I thought I would share one of the recipes from the dinner.  I had this at one of my favorite San Francisco restaurant – Piccino a few weeks ago and knew that I had to recreate it for Supper Club.  I […]
