Zucchini Ribbon Salad with Rice and Beans

IMG_7356

Recovery from Wildflower is going really well.  I ended up taking 3 complete rest days, and then somehow found myself committing to a marathon that’s 5 weeks away. My sister’s last race marathon was in San Francisco two years ago, and she wants to get revenge on the course [...]

Cornmeal Crepes with Black Beans and Zucchini

crepes

I’m not good at handling stress.  I fidget, I feel sick to my stomach, I make a million lists (which kind of stresses me out even more), I snap at Mike even when he’s being incredibly understanding and helpful.  Sometimes he just looks me in the eye, and tells [...]

Mixed Vegetable and Farro Salad with Goat Cheese

IMG_5061

The other night I spent almost three hours last night making some Ethiopian food. One of the perks of only working part-time in the summer is having a lot of time to cook! I made injera, collard greens, red lentils, and mushrooms. <– (none of the recipes are mine) [...]

Spinach and Mushroom Quiche with Vegetable Crust

Yesterday’s run was the best I’ve had yet! I may have broken my casual “no more than 5 miles” rule (barely), but it was beautiful and I felt great. 5.03 miles, 9:43 min/mile Next week I think I’ll bump my long run up to 6 miles, but stick with [...]

Miso-Curry Roasted Vegetbles with Tofu

Let’s go ahead and file this one under “Things I never thought would go together but definitely do and I’m now borderline obsessed with.” White miso and red curry paste. Who ever would have thought those would be so amazing together when tossed with vegetables? Oh yeah, Heidi. That [...]

Spelt Zucchini Bread

The weather lately has been so perfect it’s kind of unbelievable. I was led to believe that Daly City was the foggiest place on Earth and I would never see the sun, so the fact that it’s been in the low 70s and sunny for the past week or [...]

Potato and Zucchini Pizza

The homemade pizza Friday tradition has been going strong since we moved up here, and I don’t see it dying any time soon. There are just far too many possibilities! This idea came from Jamie Oliver, whom I completely adore. In fact, one of the ways I knew Mike [...]

Vegan Calzones

Sorry for the hiatus, but my kitchen looked like this for awhile: all packed up in boxes. Now we’re settled in a new apartment, with a new (smaller) kitchen, and a plethora of Asian grocery stores just a few minutes away. There’s also a Philipino bakery not far from [...]

Zucchini Salad with lemon and mint

So, I made it back from New Zealand…finally. The plane got struck by lightning and the customs line at LAX was ENDLESS, but I’m happy to be back to summer! (That’s not to say I didn’t love New Zealand…I did, and I highly recommend you go there). After so [...]

Lemon-Thyme Quinoa and Roasted Vegetable Salad

I spent all day thinking about this dinner. I realize to some people that might be a little obsessive, but I knew I had quinoa and a random assortment of vegetables at home, and I wanted to make something that would use up what I had on hand but [...]
