Cold Longevity Noodle Salad

It turns out that longevity is a lot like revenge and is best served cold. This simple dish was a standout of my lunar new year brunch with friends taking it to go and it being the highlight of the following seriously bonkers work days. Save yourself about half of the sauce and prep extra…

Rarely a cookie recipe comes along – from a supermodel, no less- that truly blows your mind. This recipe is absolute, indulgent perfection! Sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy… Ms. Teigan nails it, the it being my waist line, but totally worth ‘it.’ Chrissy’s White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Chrissy’s Cucumber Salad

Happy lunar new year, ya’ll! I don’t know anyone more ready for some cleansing, fresh vibes than this girl right here…which I suppose is ironic being that the holiday was ushered in by a carb-laden dim sum brunch and just wee bit of wine with the girls. There was this cucumber salad that Chrissy Teigan…

Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice

One of my favorite restaurant appetizers is anything involving spicy tuna and bonus points if its resting on a bed of crispy rice. So, when I found this original Nobu copycat recipe, I knew that this had to be my special new year’s eve dinner. I need to try again on the rice as I’m…

Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles

Leftover whipped sweet potatoes crowding your fridge? I can attest that shoving them in some waffle batter is an excellent use of their efforts for breakfast the next day and perform equally as well in the toaster on day two. Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles Adapted from Grace and Good Eats

Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies

The star of this year’s cookie plate is reminiscent of a cookie I found at Violet Bakery in London several years ago and have been chasing ever since. Some might argue these are better suited to the citrus-laden days of spring, but I think they are perfect for the holidays. Plus, their citrusy glaze keeps…

Still have apples from your overly curated IG apple picking? Thought you might… why don’t I introduce you to my Grandmother’s apple harvest cake recipe. It’s a family tradition, ludicrously simple, and succinctly captures that fall magic in every bite. Harvest Apple Cake

Ina’s Winter Squash Soup

Is it clear I’m coming upon 40… I love soup….this must be a key sign of entering the next decade. This one was so easy, so comforting, and ludicrously simple if you buy squash that is already cubed. It’s definitely one for the winter rotation and if you top it with pretzel bread croutons and…
