One of my favorites, Pamela Salzman’s delicious Kale, Mushroom and Brown Rice Bake is a hit with the whole family, and the perfect recipe for the transition from summer to fall. For Richard, we skip the cheese and use hemp milk and it’s almost as yummy.

It’s rare that you’ll come across someone who doesn’t like guacamole – I, for one, can’t even imagine such a thing. But for the few who do not, Barrett from Valleybrink Road’s insanely delicious recipe might be just the thing to change their mind. Simple, bright, and with just the right amount of kick, it is absolute avocado perfection.
I love finding dishes that, though light, are completely satisfying. Barrett from Valleybrink Road shared this winner with me and I was instantly hooked. Full of bright, beautiful flavors, and the presentation to match, it’s as gorgeous as it is delicious.
I am always on the hunt for light, delicious dishes, and Valleybrink Road’s Heirloom Tomato and Corn Salad definitely fits the bill. Super quick and easy, it’s the perfect go-to this time of year when corn is in season.
By now, you are quite familiar with my obsession with all things Valleybrink Road, and this recipe for Summer Squash with Pecorino and Lemon Vinaigrette is no exception. It is a beautiful combination of flavors and the perfect light summer dish. Enjoy!
Having already tried one of Barrett’s inspired tartines with ricotta, apricot, and mint, I just had to try her Ricotta Crostini with Tomato Vinaigrette. We have the most delicious cherry tomatoes growing in our garden, and Ripley loves to help me pick them – in the summer months, we tend to have an overabundance of them in our kitchen! I think we may have just solved that problem.
Pamela taught me how to make these healthy granola bars in class several years ago, and they are just delicious. Not only are they the perfect light dessert for summer, but my kids also love making them with me, which is always a plus!
As you all know by now, I love trying out recipes from Barrett of Valleybrink Road, and this Kale Salad with Serrano, Mint, and Breadcrumbs is no exception – it has become a spring staple in our house, and I absolutely can’t get enough!
Looking for the perfect summer salad? Pamela Salzman’s Watermelon and Tomato Salad with Feta and Mint is an absolute must. Light and refreshing, it is such delicious combinaton of flavors, and just the thing for the warm days and nights ahead.
I’m a fan of all things Gwyneth Paltrow so when her cookbook came out, I was really excited to try out her recipes. Her Spaghetti Limone Parmeggiano is a family favorite in our house! XXJKE
I’ve always been a big fan of Heidi Swanson and her recipe blog 101 Cookbooks. Below is one of her recipes that have been on heavy rotation in our kitchen lately.
Here’s a great recipe for Veggie Chili from the incredible Pamela Salzman…
Steven Arroyo is the man behind some of LA’s most cherished eateries and his latest venture, Escuela Taqueria, is a family favorite of ours. From the food to the décor, we were instantly hooked. Tanner and Ripley love their chips and quesadillas, and there are always vegan and veggie options for Richard and I.
This January marks three years of cooking class in my kitchen with Pamela Salzman. To celebrate I wanted to share one of my favorite winter recipes with all of you, Pamela’s amazing Miso Soup. It is delicious, easy to make, and incredibly healthy.
