Avocado & Egg Brown Rice Bowl

This recipe is inspired by a breakfast rice bowl called Tamago Kake Gohan that we ate over and over again during our trips to Japan. Its name translates to egg rice, and that‘s basically what it is - a raw egg mixed into piping hot rice. Don‘t be scared - the hot rice cooks the egg as you stir it in. The result is the most creamy, delicious bowl of rice you‘ve ever had. It‘s almost like risotto, but without so much of the

Frittata Recipe, plus 5 Variations

A frittata is my #1 favorite brunch item to make at home. It‘s easy and versatile, so I thought with Easter coming up this weekend, you may like a frittata recipe idea or five! I usually make my frittatas with whatever vegetables I have on hand, which means that I‘ve tried a whole bunch of various combinations over the years. Below are a few of my favorites along with some tips. First things first though, you may be asking what is a f

Healthy Egg Salad Sandwich

I‘ve never really loved egg salad. Nice way to start a post about egg salad, right? But this isn‘t just any egg salad sandwich: it‘s bright from lemon, full of fresh herbs, and it gets a little briny kick from capers - it‘s the best egg salad I‘ve had! In fact, compared to traditional egg salads, which I feel can be a bit on the heavy side, this is light, fresh, and what I think egg salad wants to be. If you look at

Carrot Smrrebrd Crisps

A few years ago, Jack and I visited Copenhagen, where we ate lots and lots (and lots) of Smrrebrd. If you aren‘t familiar with smrrebrd, they are open faced sandwiches with artfully-piled toppings on dense, rectangle-shaped rye bread. It‘s the national dish of Denmark that I‘m about to make a completely non-traditional version of - but this is super yummy, so let‘s just have fun and go with it! Smrrebrd toppings vary wide

Broccoli Pesto Quinoa Salad

When you don‘t know what to make for lunch or dinner, what do you usually end up making?My go-to is the almighty quinoa salad! I usually have a batch of quinoa on hand in my fridge or freezer (note: quinoa freezes exceptionally well), which makes salads like this easy to put together at the last minute. Quinoa salads are a versatile way to show off the seasons, andthis one is my little tribute to spring. For this recipe, I lightly blanched

A peek into my morning routine

Today I‘m taking a break from sharing a recipe to show you a peek into my world at home - specifically, my morning routine. For me, every day always looks a little different. Some days are spent shooting photos, other days are spent writing blog posts, planning recipes, laying out book pages, emailing, testing, the list goes on and on. Suffice it to say, many of my days are pretty chaotic, so one thing I‘ve learned to value over time

Is there anything better than creamy pasta? How about creamy tomato pasta! I‘m so excited about this recipe because it is basically everything I want to eat for dinner any night of the week. Big, hearty, rigatoni noodles are coated in a tangy, luscious creamy tomato sauce. Plus, it‘s a healthy bowl of pasta because there are quite a few yummy sauted vegetables mixed in here as well.

Best Carrot Cake

It‘s carrot cake season! This week, I feel like I‘ve eaten carrot cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We had a big carrot cake last weekend for Jack‘s birthday, followed by a few more cakes made (and consumed) while creating this post. I would say that I‘m carrot caked out, but we really just love carrot cake! We even had it at our wedding because it‘s Jack‘s favorite thing ever. This carrot cake recipe is b
