Pie, Pastry, + Tart
I’m getting these winter citrus tarts to you a little later than I originally intended, mostly because the past few weeks have been a very hectic blur. However, in that time Linda Lomelino and I launched her new *crazy* beautiful lightroom preset collection, available...

As someone who strongly prefers savory flavors to sweet, Caesar salad has been the Romeo to my salad-loving Juliette since the very first bite. Salty, cheesy, lemon-y, bright, crunchy, and slightly fishy, it’s an amalgamation of flavors + textures that go almost suspiciously well...

If you’ve never heard of shakshuka, or aren’t sure how to even pronounce it, you are not alone (I pronounced it wrong for about a year after I’d first had it, you say it like “shack – shouk-ah” just to clarify).The first time I...
