Mardi Gras Gumbo

Mardi Gras Gumbo

Cajun food has always appealed to me; partly because of the uniqueness of the flavors and the general spiciness of the dishes, but also because of the mystique of the area. There’s an enchanting aura about that southern Louisiana bayou – spicy creoles and Zydeco music, hearty gumbos and voodoo all mix together in a hot, humid, alligator-infested swamp. Good times… This gumbo […]

Whole Wheat Flaxseed Waffles

Whole Wheat Flaxseed Waffles

One of my favorite meals of the week is my post-run breakfast after a long Saturday morning run. After 15 or 20 miles my body needs carbohydrates – both simple and complex, and protein to repair those worn-out muscles. I get all that and more in these quick and tasty waffles. Whole wheat flour provides long-lasting carbohydrates, flaxseed meal and almond milk provide […]

This baked macaroni and cheese is brimming with a rich, cheesy […]

So Cal Guacamole

So Cal Guacamole

Being a native of southern California, I’ve had my share of guacamole. I’ve also always had 3 nagging issues with this classic tortilla chip accompaniment that I’ve decided to address: 1. Too mushy. Avocados are a beautiful fruit and their texture is creamy and sublime, why turn them into a big bowl of mush? 2. Boring. Guacamole is simple yes, but it doesn’t […]

Gomasio

Gomasio

Gomasio is a flavorful condiment made from toasted sesame seeds and coarse salt. It is as simple to make as it sounds – toast sesame seed and salt together in a heavy skillet (I always use my hefty cast-iron) and grind it up. The ratio of sesame seeds to salt can vary from 5 to 1 to 15 to 1, depending on your […]
