Kumquat Malabi (vegan) //

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of changes, inspirations, and important events. While I'm grateful for every single minute of this sweet busy season, sometimes your body will finally force you to get some much needed rest. After months of prepping and planning, I hosted my first Off The Grid retreat last weekend [...]

Bread Therapy Workshop //

An intimate, hands on bread making workshop. When I share my bread with friends, the most common responses are “This must have taken forever,” “I don’t have time to make things like this,” “This looks super difficult,” and “I can’t bake to save my life.” When it comes to bread, it’s all about process over [...]

The 10 minute salad lunch for when you’re feeling just a little extra //

You guys — something miraculous happened the other day. After sharing my mandarin Madeleine cookie recipe on Instagram, someone commented and asked when I would be sharing more SALADS. This was seriously a first for me, friends. But it totally inspired me and lit a fire under my butt — so here we have it. [...]

French Bread with Maple Glaze (vegan and GF optional)

Rosemary Biscuits (vegan & GF) //

This past week was full of emotions — striving to find the words, and they just won't come. Some of my dearest friends lost their homes and businesses in the SoCal fires -- my heart feels broken open -- my stomach has been consistently in knots. Tonight, I am baffled by my comfort. I am [...]

Vegan + Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie //

You guys. I can't believe Thanksgiving is just two days away. I'm hosting my vegan + gluten-free holiday here in my humble abode and spent the majority of today cutting linen napkins. Now that I'm not covered in fabric threads, I wanted to share one of the recipes I am most excited about. I did [...]

Pain. Chaos. Coping. And finding the beauty. //

Can I be honest for a moment, friends? This week kicked my ass. No really...it did. But like anything in life, there are always silver linings and little moments of joy we can grasp onto in the midst of the "oh my god, what is happening?!" kind of lessons.  While this past week seemed to [...]

The “just because” funfetti cake (vegan + gluten-free) //

I am a big fan of celebrating life. Of extravagant love. Of tea parties just because. Of baking at midnight.  This past Tuesday was Brian's father's birthday, and while his dad is no longer with us on earth, I felt compelled to honor his life in the small ways I knew how: icing a homemade [...]
