Simply Delicious Warm Kale Salad
This is one of my fast and easy go-to recipes. I can run home in between classes and make is for lunch with no time-crunch. It’s a salad that doesn’t feel like you’re eating a “salad”. It’s also the type of salad that you can make for lunch the night before. Since kale is so rugged, it holds up overnight and doesn’t get soggy like most greens would. Just...
Sunrise Morning Muesli
I never eat cereal. Don’t get me wrong, cereal is delicious, but I find myself eating 3 bowls before I’m full, getting a carb and sugar overload, and then feeling like crap afterwards.

I served this drink to a couple of my friends at a little get-together I had this...
Swiss Chard Wrapped Pesto Eggplant with Polenta...
This recipe was inspired by a dish I had at Portabello Vegan Trattoria, my absolute favorite restaurant. In the vegan mecca that is Portland, this is one of the most upscale and delicious vegan restaurants of them all. You have to make reservations about a week in advance, unless you want to wait about 2 hours for a table. Their menu is ever-changing, based on what is locally in season. This...
Street Style: A Day in Montmartre
On what seems like the hottest day that Paris has even seen, we decided to go on a day-long hike in the streets on Montartre, it’s my absolute favorite neighborhood of Paris. My good friend Kerry, who owns O’Pearl Art, gave me these awesome Chinese earrings, they definitely pull together the whole look.
