Za'Atar Spice_11_Gold&Thyme

Za’atar Spice

ZA’ATAR SPICE One thing I love about living in Paris are the spice shops. There are many – some great, some good and some not so good.  But, every time I walk into a shop, Marc says ” ahhhh… your space mountain!” and I proceed to stay much longer than expected 😉  I can’t deny […]

HOT PINK BEETROOT HUMMUS + SUMAC-DUSTED PITA CHIPS With the weather changing and turning into real Summer, I’m craving more vibrant foods and thus have been trying to add more color to my dishes.  And as hummus is one of my favorite foods, I decided to start playing around with different recipes.  Pea Hummus, Lentil […]

CHIPOTLE LIME CASHEW SAUCE {Vegan} I arrived in California a couple of weeks ago for what I’m calling, ‘a creative hiatus.” The sun is shinning the weather is sweet, (and I’m hoping this weekend) I’ll get to move my dancing feet!  Thanks, Bob Marley!  Suffice it to say, I’m very happy to be here! I’ve […]

Homemade Corn Tortillas

HOMEMADE CORN TORTILLAS Having grown up in the Bay Area in California, corn tortillas were like bread to me.  I remember eating quesadillas and tacos multiple times throughout the week.  But when I moved to Paris, tortillas were hard to find.  I remember going to the spice market at Beaumarchais in 2009 where a bag […]

Fresh Tomatillo Salsa

FRESH TOMATILLO SALSA When I’m in my hometown of Berkeley, California, one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is go to the Center Street/Ecology Center Farmer’s Market. With my Canon 5D in hand, I find myself tasting and photographing everything…from purple radishes to purple carrots, and everything in between.  I stumble […]
