One of the greatest parts of food blogging is being able to connect with incredible artisans, makers and culinary creators from around the world. And if there’s one thing I’ve seen in this community – there are some seriously talented women out there shaping the way we eat, think, and feel about food! This year, I decided to launch a new series on the Vidya blog to highlight some of the kitchen goddesses out there who …Keep Reading

With this cake I’m celebrating my 26th birthday! I can hardly believe a whole quarter of a century has passed already, wasn’t I just blowing out the candles to a white chocolate persimmon cake? With my birthday so close to the new year, this has always been a time of introspection, reflection …Keep Reading
Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday of mine for many reasons….spending hours in the kitchen with no apologies and nowhere else to be, roasted root veggies, friends around the table, roasted root veggies, post-meal lounging, did I mention root vegetables yet? This year, I’ve created a few new recipes to share (like the pomegranate, persimmon and pumpkin kale salad above!) and curated a guide of my favorite holiday-inspired dishes from a …Keep Reading
Each season, I share a peek inside my kitchen and what I’m cooking to create balanced health in the Vidya Seasonal Kitchen video series. Sometimes health means slowing down and enjoying the journey. For me, there’s nothing like a road trip and time spent in nature to reconnect with myself and with loved ones. This fall, my friends and I took to the open road and headed east towards …Keep Reading

Think pickled bull kelp and beach asparagus, dried bladderwrack , sea lettuce salads, herring …Keep Reading

Before the last of our summer cherries slip away, here you are…a chocolate cherry crisp with (gasp!) almost but not quite five ingredients! That’s right, I created a recipe with less than 10 ingredients for once. My friends over at The Fresh Exchange blog have this nifty little series …Keep Reading
I have a confession to make. I, Claire Ragozzino, am a goat cheese addict. Okay, addict is an overstatement. But about once a year I get in the mood for goats milk kefir and feta, and I eat it for about a month until I become tired of the dairy and go back to being dairy-free again. There’s nothing wrong with that, right? Well for a long time I felt …Keep Reading
Summer Solstice Blessings dear friends! I couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you my newest collaboration video with Choate House. This is our third video together, and perhaps my faorite, as I got to ride vintage cruisers with boyfriend and lounge in a bohemian-inspired tent in my backyard for the filming of this video! When I moved to Oklahoma, never in a million years did I dream …Keep Reading
Around here, Cinco de Mayo means giant feast with all my favorite Mexican-inspired flavors. May 5th is also my good friend and neighbor’s birthday (her nickname is Cinco because of this – send her some birthday love!), so we have double the reason for a serious taco celebration! This year, I’ve pulled together for you a party of my favorite tried-and-true mostly raw, completely vegan taco filling recipes: …Keep Reading
