A Not Entirely Classic Hummus

It might seem like a tad overdone and slightly unnecessary to start putting another food blog out into the universe, but I’d like to think of this as my own personal journey with food, and if you’d like to join along, then so be it. Does that make it any less over done? No. WillContinue reading “A Not Entirely Classic Hummus”

Spanish Inspired Chickpea Bowl

In the past five or so years, cooking has become one of my main ancillary passion in life. Interestingly enough, I haven’t always loved food. Weird right? Especially because I come from two distinct cultures who base a large portion of their traditions on food, Italian and Jewish. My dad would always say, “food isContinue reading “Spanish Inspired Chickpea Bowl”

Summer Falafel Salad

Falafels are one food that is especially sacred to me. Oftentimes I will try them at restaurants and will find that they are either too crunchy or too dry and the mixture tastes as if it has been sitting in a bowl in their refrigerator overnight. Very rarely do I find excellent falafels, but whenContinue reading “Summer Falafel Salad”

Spicy Stir-Fry Rice Noodles

I was starving, didn’t know what to eat, didn’t want to go grocery shopping, and had the most random ingredients in my fridge—and then I came up with this magical stir-fry totally on the fly (that rhymes). If you want to add some type of protein to this dish alongside the edamame a good pairing wouldContinue reading “Spicy Stir-Fry Rice Noodles”

Things I Do In LA

When thinking about this topic I was struggling a little bit because LA is home, so when I think of things I do, it never feels extraordinary or magical, it sort of just feels normal. However, there are a lot of things that I do and feel comfortable doing, that I would otherwise think twiceContinue reading “Things I Do In LA”

Slow Roasted Beets w/ Herb Ricotta and Pistachio Lemon Vinaigrette

Violette_fr has been influencing style and beauty for quite some time as a blogger/influencer and as the Global Beauty Director for Estée Lauder. Basically, Violette is the epitome of French girl beauty but gives you all the dirty details to get it yourself. Recently I was scrolling through the vortex that is Youtube, and IContinue reading “Slow Roasted Beets w/ Herb Ricotta and Pistachio Lemon Vinaigrette”

Simple Coq au Vin

This is by far one of my favorite meals to make. It’s surprisingly really easy, doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, and can make boring chicken into a masterpiece. Typically, this dish is made well in advance, allowing time for the chicken to marinate in the wine long enough for the flavor to soak in,Continue reading “Simple Coq au Vin”

Stuffed Eggplant and Lentils

A few Hanukkah’s ago my mother got me a book called Jerusalem: A Cookbook by Sami Tamimi. I had read the book cover to cover and swooned over the recipes inspired Jerusalem and the slew of culture that dwells there, yet have never actually cooked anything from the book. As any fan of middle eastern andContinue reading “Stuffed Eggplant and Lentils”

A Sephardi Woman’s Shakshuka

I know it might seem random to start introducing recipes and things of this nature to TW, but honestly, I love food so much I can’t help but share the recipes and things I love. For example, last week, I forced my friends to partake in Pesach seder with my primary goal being able to force feedContinue reading “A Sephardi Woman’s Shakshuka”
