Miso, Mushroom and Kale Soup

I was in the mood for a comforting, miso broth with noodles last night so I came up with this simple soup! A salubrious immune system is our number one defense against all sickness and disease. A diet rich in whole, fresh fruits and vegetables is essential to that. Fermented foods, such as miso, soy […]


Simple Red Curry Coconut Squash

I found this beautiful red kuri squash at the Palo Alto Farmer’s Market this weekend and was feeling very inspired to make a delicious red curry coconut sauce to compliment it. My first attempt to execute a red curry recipe from one of my cookbooks went horribly wrong. So I had to chuck it out […]

The Beef Wellington. This traditional English preparation of beef fillet coated with paté topped with duxelles and wrapped in buttery pastry has been the centerpiece of my family’s Christmas dinner for at least 12 years. I am not certain of the circumstances that made my father decide one Christmas that he was going to make […]

Instead of turkey and pie (and hopefully football) David and I opted to spend our Thanksgiving week in Costa Rica indulging in sun and clear water, yoga and surfing, tropical drinks and fresh fish.  But before our departure a small taste of Thanksgiving was necessary. David’s favorite part of Thanksgiving is the sweet potato pie his mother […]

I stand over the sink rinsing a bunch of kale before separating the stems from the leaves. With each tear a comforting “crunch” resounds and then the familiar jingle of Charlie’s collar as he trots into the kitchen, stops at my feet and looks up at me expectantly. I hand him the kale stalk I […]

Ughhhh I am sorry I haven’t posted in a few weeks. It’s been a roller coaster with the high point being a trip to Mexico to see a couple of extremely lovely and loving people get married by a Shaman on the beach. The low point was getting some really upsetting news about David’s mother, […]
