I don’t mean to be cheesy, but this is my favorite dip recipe ever.
No need to get the food processor out – All you need is a knife and a cutting board!
Good morning! I’m traveling for work today in LA and planning to hit up some fabulous spots for breakfast and lunch. It’s always fun to be trying food in a city that’s not your own – and there’s nothing like doing the “work hard, play hard” thing and falling into bed, exhausted, at the end […]
I have been planning to make this gorgeous beet paste forever. I have a brand new bag of za’atar and I was really excited to use it… except I left it on my desk at work for almost a week. And I would get home, and note that I still had my roasted beets in […]

Quite frankly I haven’t known what the heck a garlic scape is for that […]
Okay, people reading this, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. It’s the kind of secret that I kind of debate actually sharing, because I don’t want too many people to know about it. But then again, what is food, if not for sharing? So here goes (deep breath): About once a […]
