Shaved Brussel Sprout Salad with White Miso Vinaigrette and Soy Sauce Eggs — A hearty, satisfying salad full of crunchy texture and loads of flavor thanks to a tangy-sweet dressing and a topping of deeply savory soy sauce marinated eggs. Yep, the always conspicuous…and News! so we’ll get to that first. Today, I’m completely humbled to announce something that’s been in the works for a while over here. Something that’s been both a labor of love and a rite of passage, of sorts, as we continue to settle into this Coastside community that’s so quickly become the warm, fuzzy hometown … Read More

Gluten-Free Fattoush Salad with Za’atar Chickpea Crisps — a hearty, vegetarian salad featuring crunchy gluten-free chickpea crackers and a lemon oregano dressing. Hi guys! We took a bit of a belated spring break last week to spend a few days skiing in the 70-degree sunshine, hot tubbing to our pruney toes’ content and bingeing reruns of Sex and the City (and, if we’re being honest, Naked and Afraid) like one can only do in the dim, guiltless light of a hotel room.

And the internet knows far more than me about how to put your best bird forward, so I’ll spare you my attempt. Instead, as has become habit of late, I’ll keep things on the short side (I’m actually working on a new pigtales piece that will exhaust whatever vocabulary I leave on the table in this post) and just drop this most colorful salad into … Read More
