Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Hello! It’s nice to be back here sharing a recipe after the long weekend. I hope you had a relaxing Memorial Day and a marvelous few days filled with sun, fun, and delicious food! I headed up to Sonoma County with my boyfriend, where we stayed at my parents’ home in wine country. We had the … More Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Oat Scones

This scone recipe comes from The Cheeseboard in Berkeley, where I grew up. This food establishment is unlike any other place in the world. It’s an amazing cheese shop (with hundreds of types of delicious cheese!), a vegetarian pizzeria serving the best pizza I’ve ever tasted, and a bakery with incredible baguettes and scones. Growing … More Oat Scones

Ricotta Pancakes

Ricotta is one of those foods that’s just so good, sometimes you can’t even believe it. You know what I mean: like a perfectly ripe, red strawberry; a chunk of fresh-baked, yeasty bread; a square of the darkest, most rich chocolate. These foods… you take just a single bite, and are blown away by the … More Ricotta Pancakes

Chia Seed Jam

A simple piece of toast with butter and jam is one of my favorite little snacks. It may be because I was a toast fiend growing up (I often at three or four slices for breakfast!) but there’s something so comforting about the warm, toasty bread topped with a sweet, fruity compote. I’ve dabbled in making … More Chia Seed Jam

Vegan Banana Waffles

My parents gave me a waffle iron for Christmas last year, so now I can make this delicious breakfast dish at home anytime – how cool is that?! I’ve been experimenting with a few different waffle recipes, including the classic buttermilk and my mom’s famous yeasted version. I’ll have to share those recipes soon, but … More Vegan Banana Waffles

Maple Coconut Granola

It’s funny: cereal is one of those things that most people never think to try making at home. We’re so used to going to the grocery store and scanning the aisle of brightly-colored cardboard boxes until we find our favorite – whether that’s Fruit Loops, all-natural Cocoa Crisps, or even plain old Cheerios. Personally, I … More Maple Coconut Granola

Whole Wheat Crepes

These crepes take me straight back to the semester I spent studying in Paris. I enjoyed the best food throughout my time in Europe – steak frites, baguette sandwiches stuffed with foie gras, and lots and lots of almond croissants. But once or twice a week, when I was craving a simple, homey meal, I … More Whole Wheat Crepes

Chocolate Banana Muffins

This fall, I’ve enjoyed experimenting with some vegan, gluten, and refined sugar-free baking. While I’ll always love my layer cakes and rich brownies, it’s nice to be able to whip up some yummy treats that also make me feel great! Like my chocolate chip banana bread cookies and pumpkin oatmeal cookies, these chocolate banana muffins are so easy … More Chocolate Banana Muffins

Pear Breakfast Crisp

Ask me about my favorite fruit dessert, and I’ll give you two very specific answers: strawberry shortcake and apple crisp. The first for spring (and my birthday!); the latter for fall. What, no pie? I simply prefer the crumbly, crunchy, buttery, cinnamony topping of a great crisp to any pie dough – plus, it’s so … More Pear Breakfast Crisp
