Recipes: Chocolate Molasses Layer Cake with Marmalade & Candied Fennel Frosting

I turn 30 today – on the new moon of December 7th. The same new moon I was born on. Call it auspicious or significant, whatever planetary alignment it is, it’s brought a tangible feeling of freshness and excitement into greeting this new decade ahead of me.

I’d be lying if I said this transition was welcomed with ease. In fact, I spent much of 29 fretting about turning 30. I …

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: Crumble Bars from Golubka Kitchen

I planted the first seeds for a food blog when I was living in Paris in 2010. I was attending Sciences Po to study international affairs and political science, but my real passion was wellness. I had just completed my yoga teacher training the summer before and was practicing Ashtanga avidly.

Recipes: Maple Spice Granola

Recipes: Summer Popsicle Trio

Last summer, my friends and I gathered at my house to have a “popsicle-off” – a big midsummer popsicle tasting party/competition. Everyone brought their A-game to this one! Friends showed up with the most interesting boozy and non-boozy popsicle varieties, and for the whole night we huddled around in my kitchen passing off melting popsicles as they dripped down our hands, rating our favorites and licking the leftovers from …

Recipes: Tahini Rose Truffles

There’s a reason chocolate is synonymous with love. Cacao, the plant that forms your favorite treats, has naturally occurring compounds called “Anandamides” that trigger neurotransmitters in the brain to create a state of euphoria. In Sanskrit, the root word “Ananda” means bliss – so quite literally, chocolate can curate an experience of love and bliss in the body and mind. These healthy chocolate truffles are made from mineral-rich tahini …

Do you ever pause and wonder, what would your life look like if each decision you made came from a place of conscious intention? Would you spend less time lingering online and more time outdoors? Would you slow down to connect with those around you rather than getting lost in your to-do lists? The choices we make in each moment shape the course of our lives, and as the …

Recipes: Maple-Glazed Pumpkin Spiced Donuts

This colder weather outside (read: sleeting rain+ice storms!) has signaled a shift for me to head inside and start finding little creative projects to fill my weekends. Lately, it’s been a mixture of watercolor painting, podcast listening, making my way through that giant stack of books by my bed, and well, of course, fall inspired-baking. This weekend, my house has been filled with the smell of fresh roasted pumpkin, maple …

Recipes: Avocado Lime Tart with Coconut Macaroon Crust

Welcome Summer! I’ve just returned from a long weekend in Santa Fe + Taos celebrating summer solstice with my sweet sisters and preparing for our Spirit of the Rose | Chakra Awakening Retreat Journey this August. The sun was intense, to say the least, and even though we were dipped into the mineral springs half the time, I found myself shying away from the heat as much …
