Two of my favorite sauces are chimichurri and basil pesto, both very different in taste but at the same time, very similar in the way they look. Chimichurri is a sauce of Argentine origin. I’ve played around with different ways to make chimichurri and I found I like it best with some cilantro in it.
Mapo tofu comes from the Sichuan province of China, known for its sauce. This dish is easy and delicious. It's also simple to customize and add meat or change up the vegetables.
Spicy Watermelon Salad
Cold, juicy watermelon is a staple of summer and this refreshing salad is a nice change of pace from the same ole plain wedges and cubes!
I, like many other people, have taken advantage of the many brands of youth
inducing collagen. Collagen not only helps grow strong nails, hair, gives you
youthful skin it also helps in healing bones in recovery. I like to add collagen to
soups, stews, my morning coffee and now to homemade jam.
Here is a recipe for all you Sauce Bosses out there. If you don’t have this in your arsenal, you are going to want to pay attention.
Cranberry Pear Crisp
Cobbler, Crisp, or Crumble? What’s the difference, anyway? All three are typically desserts with a filling consisting primarily of baked fruit; but what distinguishes them is the topping. Read more to find the recipe!

Healthy comfort food. Sounds impossible, right? Getting creative with ingredients is a great way to adapt any recipe to create something that is delicious, satisfying, and nutritious. I love taking classic dishes and using lots of fresh herbs and vegetables to add more flavor. This Zucchini Lasagna is an excellent example of that, and also happens to be paleo, gluten-free, and vegan!
Hearts of Palm Ceviche
This has always been one of my favorite vegan dishes to make for potlucks as it’s a great plant-based dish everyone will like. Being from Southern California ceviche is a dish that makes me think of sitting outside in the heat and enjoying a nice cooling dish. Hearts of palm is a very sustainable product and has a great salinity like fish. Enjoy this dish with crispy tortilla chips, sliced cucumber, sliced jicama, or just by itself! Feel free to add other veggies or spice up with your favorite hot sauce. This is a very versatile dish, and many items can be substituted.
Fall Vegetables & Squash Soup
I love fall. Who doesn't appreciate a new season and even in southern California, where the change may be subtle, I notice a slight coolness and a inimitable fragrance in the air at night. Maybe it's the eucalyptus blowing in the warm Santa Ana winds that get me. In regards to all things culinary, it's exciting to welcome the beautiful fruits of the fall. Winter squash can be so versatile from utilizing in lasagnas to tacos, it's perfect for a vegetarian/vegan palate, and can even satisfy the carnivore with some varieties having a meaty texture.
