It's in gratitude that I honor my friend and Modern Mamas Podcast cohost, Jess, for the naming of this sauce. It is, in fact, potentially as addictive as a drug, but without all the nasty shit that comes along with drug use. Actually, it's quite the opposite: life giving, nourishing, uplifting, and energizing (the kind [...]

*Note: this is an old recipe that I decided to revamp because we've fallen deeply in love with this one all over again this past week. Dinner done in less than 20 and flavor that is to DIE for. My husband keeps asking for it, and I keep using the coconut tahini sauce on E [...]

Thank you, dad. Thanks for raising me to love and believe in myself. Thank you for picking on me just enough to give me thick skin, but for loving me so much that I know my worth. Thank you for having different political opinions and for giving me a strong opponent in friendly, eye-opening debates. Thanks for [...]

The joys of preparing food go deeper than a hobby or the taste testing. This recipe is a perfect example of that. Making a meal at home for yourself and/or the ones you love goes beyond saving money or eating clean; it allows the opportunity to nourish on a deeper level, no matter how fancy [...]
