orange and olive oil cake

orange and olive oil cake

I first came across this olive oil cake recipe on Food 52 in February and I knew immediately that I’d be making it for my man for Valentine’s day.  Between the two of us and my roommate, there was not a drop of glaze left on that cake stand.  The olive oil keeps the cake moist… more

simple arugula salad

simple arugula salad

If you know me at all, you know I’m obsessed with salads.  Call me crazy (some of you do…) but I find them delicious, crisp, and refreshing.  This arugula salad has become a favorite of mine, primarily because it contains 5 ingredients and takes approximately 5 minutes to make.  I feel guilty calling this a… more

oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

aka the b-low cookies. Why?  Because when you promise cookies in exchange for miracles in your day-job, you deliver.  So when my colleague gave me a miracle that kept a critical project on track, my second response (after “OMG THANK YOUUUU!!!!!” obviously) was, “so what kind of cookies do you want?”  And after deciding upon… more

4 ingredient balsamic vinaigrette

I heard somewhere that spring is coming, but in California that means it’s 10 degrees warmer and probably raining.  NOT THAT I AM COMPLAINING!  Just highlighting that the poor east-coasters are ready for a major shift in the weather patterns and it kind of means nothing to me.  But still, when spring is coming, regardless… more

irish coffee cupcakes for st. patrick’s day

I have to share a secret: I love Irish Cream, and I put it into every sweet treat and tasty beverage possible.  Does that make me a bad person?  I hope not.  It’s creamy, vanilla-y, and a super easy addition to late night hot cocoa or a whipped frosting for a decadent, grown-up flavor. I’m… more

10 superbowl recipe ideas

Whether your response to this year’s Superbowl Sunday is, “yay, commercials!” or “I can’t wait to see Richard Sherman get pummeled,” let’s approach the Greatest Game of the Season with the mutual understanding that we will all eat way too much food.  With that in mind, we need to make sure that we’re eating way… more

dark chocolate pound cake

dark chocolate pound cake

…with chocolate chips.  Because sometimes, you just need some chocolate, okay? For most of us corporate folks, this past week was the first full work-week since mid-December.  Five whole days, uninterrupted by a Tuesday or Wednesday holiday… no matter how much you love your job, going from vacation mode to full-blown work-mode can definitely be… more

baked samosas (and a brief lesson on Indian ingredients!)

baked samosas (and a brief lesson on Indian ingredients!)

Full disclosure: I am Indian.  Let me be the first to tell you that these are not traditional samosas.  I feel okay about that because they taste really good.  I also feel guilty for sometimes being a little judgey towards my beloved ATK when they use non-traditional ingredients in ethnic cuisine…oops. I decided to pursue… more

triple chocolate chunk cookies (and a birthday!)

Well, I hope everyone ate as much as I did over the last two days.  I swear, the only pants that are comfortable right now are my yoga pants.  I have zero intent to wear jeans in the near future.  Today’s post is extra special for two reasons: 1) it’s a birthday celebration for Passing… more
