I’m already big fan of semi-homemade vegan recipes—those concoctions that rely halfway on all of the great plant-based products that are available these days, and halfway on homemade touches. With New York suspended in a heatwave, and my desire to cook already relatively low, I’m more partial than ever to these kinds of meals. This…

This is one of my favorite summer breakfast recipes from Power Plates, but until last week I had no plans of sharing it on the blog. Then I made it, promptly polished the leftovers as a week went by, and made it again right away. Anytime I make a recipe back-to-back like that, it’s a…

Yep, another pasta dish—but this one’s definitely a departure from pasta salad. A while back, I saw my friend Ali’s recipe, adapted from an Alice Waters pasta dish, for toasted orecchiette with zucchini and corn. It looked wonderful, and I made a note to try it, or something like it. It took me a whole year to…

This is one of those recipes that felt incredibly obvious once I’d made it; given my love of tahini and love of pesto, how is it possible that I hadn’t thought to combine them before? My curried tahini pasta salad proved to me that tahini is a great creamy base for pasta salads—a little more…
