RECIPE: Build-Your-Own Baked Oatmeal

There’s something about eating out of a bowl that I find both comforting and satisfying. It’s really a perfect vessel – it has a wall to hold pile in a wide variety of foods. Ice cream, stir-fry, salad, pasta, soup, and oatmeal! And what do all of those things have in common?? They’re all foods…

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with tahini. The first recipe I ever published here, many years ago, did indeed use tahini. I even joke with people that if I ever write a book, it will be all about tahini! Funny story….have you ever gotten so excited about something such as a book, a…

Chai Spiced Buckwheat Pancakes

Hello! Talk about sharing this way later than I had “planned.” I actually had this all scheduled to post early last week, but then I decided I wasn’t the biggest fan of the photos (I really never am) AND then a few days ago I wanted to try one last adjustment…I cut two ingredients and…
