I like this dish even more than baked brie (and that’s saying a lot, my friends.) It will certainly garner oooohs and ahhhhhs at a dinner party, but I’d almost prefer it for dinner for just me and Chris with a big ole’ green salad. And I promise you, it’s so much easier than it looks.
How do you host a weekend brunch without cooking anything? A big, beautiful platter! Below are some quick instructions for assembling a filling but fuss-free brunch that is guaranteed to please (plus a few fancy twists on the classic mimosa!)
This dish is an easy and flavorful accompaniment to barbecued salmon, a whole roast chicken—nothin’ wrong with an organic one from Whole Foods!—or a brunch spread. And the best part? It’s even better the next day.
A s’more, like anything you eat, is only as good as the ingredients you use. I transformed four of my favorite flavor combinations—mint chocolate, salted caramel, lemon meringue pie, and dark chocolate BACON— into s’mores so you could excite those little taste buds of yours.
When making an authentic Greek salad, there are two things to mind. First—you may not use lettuce (I know, I know, you’ll never catch me saying that about any other kind of salad.) And second—the feta is better if it comes in a big salty block.
Stay cool with these dairy-free (and refined sugar-free) popsicles! They’re easy to make and can be amended to include your favorite fruit(s). Try layering in some blueberries to add a festive pop to your Fourth of July celebration!
A lovely substitute for coffee, or for me, a 3pm pick-me-up when the alternative is curling up for a nap I don’t have the luxury of taking. Whipping up (literally) this matcha latte has become a peaceful break in my day.

The fizzy, tart, and refreshing Moscow Mule is a favorite—and the best part is of course the copper mug it’s served in. A girlfriend recently shared this healthy “mule makeover” with me though and I love it even more than the original.
Salt makes everything taste like a better version of itself—whether it’s a filet, pizza, steamed broccoli, or even a salad. A sprinkling of salt will transform your food. But there are so many types of salt so it’s important to know the difference, and when to use each.
Kirstin Jackson taught me a quick way to not only make my own fromage blanc (a fresh, white cheese from France), but also two fun ways to dress it up—one savory (with herbs and olive oil), one sweet (with cardamom, honey, and cookies!).
Today, Kirstin is answering your most burning cheese questions. Next week, we’re going to teach you how to make an easy cheese at home, and finally, we’re going to…..well, actually, we’re going to keep that part a surprise. But trust me—it’s going to be gouda.
As we reflect on 2018 and list our ideas to better ourselves in 2019, I offer this: A New Year is a perfect time to make these big plans—I’ve always loved annual goal setting and the satisfaction of reviewing last year’s achievements—but our daily choices (even if we make them in July) have so much more power than a long list or vision board we peek at once a month.
I’ve always wanted to be Oprah (for many, obvious, more important reasons). But how fun would it be to gift your tribe with ALL your favorite things?! As much as I love you, it’s just not in the budget this year (stick with me though, people). So in lieu, I’ll share my secret sources and favorite products—for gifts and stocking stuffers—that light me up on a daily basis.
Don’t try to make your own clay cup, or smash your favorite mug today. But make some homemade chai and try, even if for five minutes, to ease your mind into the present moment. Sipping hot, homemade chai tea. Doesn’t that feel good?
Earlier this year I as playing with maca and found this great recipe for Coconut Cream Maca Energy Bars (right on the back of the Trader Joe’s bag!). I already know what your first question is—What the %^&* is maca?! Was she trying to spell matcha?!
Christina told me so many of her clients say “I suck at cooking.”, “I’m a horrible cook.”, “I don’t even know where to start.” I was so excited to sit down with her because there are so many easy remedies for this, and I got to gush about them for almost a whole HOUR.
