I tend to think of Valentine’s Day as a gim­micky com­mer­cial scam, how­ev­er, I’ll cel­e­brate LOVE any day of the week, and take any excuse to bake a roman­tic deca­dent dessert for the peo­ple I love. Which is where this Rose Saf­fron Tiramisu comes in! This time of year, I just love cre­at­ing Mid­dle East­ern inspired LOVE cakes. Rose, Car­damom, and Pis­ta­chio are all thought of as nat­ur­al aphro­disi­acs, and are often mar­ried togeth­er in Mid­dle East­ern desserts. Last year I made a whim­si­cal Gluten-Free Rose Read more […]

Fes­en-WHAT?!?! Unfor­tu­nate­ly for the world of food­ies, so many peo­ple have nev­er heard of Chick­en Fes­en­jan, or had the lux­u­ry of tast­ing this dish. One of the perks of grow­ing up in Vegas was that there’s deli­cious, authen­tic food of all parts of the world on near­ly every cor­ner. Vegas is a cul­tur­al melt­ing pot, and lucky for me, I got to enjoy many inter­na­tion­al fla­vors before ever leav­ing home. I first tast­ed this Per­sian delight at my favorite Mid­dle East­ern Restau­rant grow­ing up. It was love Read more […]

Hey there! Bet you weren’t expect­ing to see me in your Inbox! Boy has life kept me busy this year. I miss this space, shar­ing with all of you, and most of all, cre­at­ing new recipes. It’s time I got back to my baby. With Win­ter ahead, I’m hop­ing to enjoy a lit­tle more bal­ance in my life, specif­i­cal­ly, by being in one place for longer than a month. ‘Am I still in Taos?’ You ask. Yep, and lov­ing it!! In fact, I’m try­ing to spend more time here in my cozy home. Work has had me trav­el­ing for most of Read more […]

  Sweet Treats
  Noth­ing beats a fresh tangy lemon tart with rasp­ber­ries on a warm late Spring day! Okay, a hand­craft­ed ice cream cone might also be in the run­ning. But that sweet and sour pair of lemon and rasp­ber­ries gets me every time, what­ev­er form it takes. When I was liv­ing in Aus­tralia, I real­ized that lemon tarts are a thing. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t real­ly see them in the states.  In Oz, you can find a lemon tart in almost any cafe, to be delight­ful­ly paired with a fresh cup­pa, tea Read more […]

I real­ize Spring is fly­ing by and I have yet to share the Spring edi­tion of my Great Gluten Free Grain Series… (Psst…if you hap­pened to miss it, Win­ter brought a beau­ti­ful Brus­sels Sprout Wild Rice Sal­ad and Maple Sage Quinoa.) Have you been indulging in as much local organ­ic aspara­gus, arti­chokes, spring peas, rhubarb and straw­ber­ries as I have?! From hav­ing end­less local sea­son­al pro­duce come through the kitchen at the restau­rant, to per­son­al vis­its to the week­end Farmer’s mar­kets, I Read more […]
