Recipes: Autumn Farro Salad + A Thanksgiving Guide 2018


Happy Thanksgiving 
and holiday feasting season! I was on the mainland this fall and got to enjoy a few weeks of cozy sweater weather and cooked meals with my favorite autumn ingredients. I baked a lot. Tested new recipes, including this warm farro salad, and caught up on a few books and shows (I’m all about the Durrell’s in Corfu right now). After two years skipping winter for island weather, I forgot …

Recipes: Coconut Tapioca Pudding with Caramelized Bananas

I kind of left you hanging a few posts back on what happened to my world after the flood. It’s been three months now since we were evacuated out of our home, and as of last week I have finally moved back into my “end of the road” apartment. Having a kitchen and bed of my own again has never felt better, and I’m getting my feet back on …

Recipes: Nourishing Immunity Soup

A teacher of mine once said it’s a good thing when you’re being chiseled and polished by the challenges of life. If so, then the past month has carved new edges and facets into my being. Like a crystal with its many faces, when held to the light you can see the complexities that lie within, shaped by time and pressure. And when angled into the sun, sometimes all those …

Recipes: Turmeric Polenta, Roasted Beets & Greens

As the season shifts, so does my spice box. Slowly as winter gives way to a warmer spring and summer, the mustard seeds give way to more fennel and coriander. Saffron and cardamom tint my homemade nut milks and an extra pinch of turmeric accompanies my grains and greens. Almost intuitively, I find myself reaching for certain spices that not only flavor a meal but bring balance and support to …

Recipes: Dandelion Latte

I’ve been in a continuous state of transience for the past two years, living part time in Kauai and Oklahoma and traveling in between. The last six months I’ve found myself in New Mexico, California, New York, England, Germany, Portugal, Singapore, Vietnam, Arizona, Oahu, Kauai and Oklahoma. I’m tired just typing that. And while I value my travel experiences and opportunities so much, I finally hit that point of craving …

Recipe: Portuguese Carob Almond Cake + Portugal Retreat

Last month, I traveled to Portugal for the first time. I knew even before the plane had landed that the trip ahead held magic and significance for me. Flying over Lisbon, I could feel that mix of curious excitement and assuredness that where I was heading was exactly where I needed to be. And it was. There are few places in the world where I’ve arrived and let out a …
