SPIRULINA HONEY FACE MASK.

It’s been a strange year thus far, in that I’ve been so caught up in work that the things I typically tend to most anxiously—friendships, dating, exercise, staying current with The Good Wife—have fallen by the wayside. Which is not at all to say that I no longer care about these core elements of my […]

SWEET ‘N’ SPICY CHARRED BROCCOLINI WITH GARLICKY RICOTTA.

This post was created in partnership with Truvía. All opinions are my own. How do you nourish yourself? Sure, I mean that a bit in regards to food, but also more, bigger, the full picture of nourishment. What restores you? Heals your heart? Keeps you going? I think about these questions a lot around this […]

ROASTED VEGETABLES WITH CREAMY ROMESCO & FARRO FROM VEGETARIAN HEARTLAND.

Thunderstorms. The scent of rain on wide, apple-green leaves. Swimming pool chlorine. Fireworks. Fireflies. Family. I learned the midwest in mosaics of child wonder during the weeks we spent in Indiana every summer. My mother grew up in South Bend, daughter of the first female president of Temple Beth El, of the man who was […]

SUPERFOOD GREEN PASTA WITH GREMOLATA & GOAT CHEESE.

Some time last year, I saw a bright green pasta on my friend Lynn’s Instagram Stories from a food festival. It wasn’t green from spinach, as so many pastas are, but from spirulina—my absolute favorite superfood. I knew I had to have it. It took me a while to gear up to the audacity of […]

HARISSA BUTTERNUT SQUASH LATKES WITH TAHINI CRÈME FRAÎCHE.

Hello from Palm Springs! I came out early this year, on account of the wondrous occasion of overlapping judeochristian holidays and the not so wondrous occasion of a breakup. As many of you remember, the Palm Springs New Years holiday has been a regular celebration since 2011, and it’s become one of my favorite traditions […]

TURMERIC CIDER PICKLES FROM THE MOON JUICE COOKBOOK.

A couple years ago, I got a call from my friend Heather. She wanted me to meet her friend Amanda Chantal Bacon—she thought we might be able to work together somehow, or just find a kind of kindred spirit in one another that would be generative to us both. Heather told me that Amanda and […]

#STRESSLESS AUTUMN GREEN SMOOTHIE.

This post was created in partnership with Rescue. All opinions are my own. Bonne Bell lip gloss. A tattered copy of Neruda’s The Captain’s Verses. Licorice pastilles. Matte red lipstick. These were all purse standbys for me at one moment or another throughout my life. But even the most addictive of them (the Bonne Bell and […]

MALABI (MILK PUDDING) WITH PERSIMMON FROM MOLLY ON THE RANGE (VEGAN).

Molly and I met at camp. Wait, did I say camp? I meant the internet. Actually, we met for the first time via our mutual bestie Alana, over brunch in LA. But here’s the thing: Brunch isn’t very much like camp, and so while we bonded immediately, it wasn’t until later, when we both found ourselves on […]

ROSEMARY, FIG & LEMON POLENTA CAKE (DAIRY FREE).

This post was created in partnership with Earth Balance. All opinions are my own. Readjusting to home is strange. In Italy, I walked. I walked miles and miles every day—without even realizing, I’d find myself clocking 11 or 12 miles on my daily explorations, rapt as I was by every corner, every cobblestone, every leaf […]

VEGAN MINT CHIP SMOOTHIE.

Good morning, sweet ones. I stopped and started this post several times, because each time I began, I found myself writing something darker than the time before. My heart has been heavy. Heavy with Nice. Heavy with the United States. Heavy with Turkey. Heavy. One day I let myself sink deep into it, curl down […]

RAINBOW GREEN SMOOTHIE BOWLS.

When I began to write, it was out of fear. I thought I might forget, or pretend to forget, or pretend to pretend, or grow up. —Miranda July, “No one belongs here more than you.“— I started to dread getting in the car. I knew revving the engine meant turning on the radio, and turning […]

GREEN MILK!

Though departures may occur all at once physically, they are rarely emotionally complete in that same instant. Instead, we leave places slowly, draining ourselves from them a bit at a time, as our hearts and our minds gradually lose their grip on whomever and whatever they leave behind. Geographies tend to imprint themselves on my […]
