Chickpea Shakshuka with Red Peppers + Goat Cheese

One of the things that also gets gently laid aside during busy periods like this one is the attempt to make intricately creative and elaborate dishes … It is the time to fall back on tried and true comforts that are simple to whip up and filling and energizing for a dancing body. Hello, shakshuka, my old friend.

Tahini + Honey Super Seed Granola Bars

…when those big looming things finally leap out at us from the seemingly distant shadows ahead, somehow it never feels like we did enough. Maybe the key is not just to prepare the tools and resources that we will need for whatever events or projects lay on the horizon, but to simultaneously cultivate a sense of openness- a willingness to accept surprise and be ready to improvise with whatever is thrown our way.

Dark Chocolate, Apricot + Cinnamon Scones

When I stopped and zoomed out on what I am actually doing in the big picture of the online world, I had this vivid image come into my mind. I pictured a large group of diverse and fascinating women, gathered in a beautiful communal space, sharing thoughts and opinions, mugs of coffee and their secret home recipes from the heart

Yeasted Cardamom and Fig Cake + A Two-Year Blog Birthday

Yesterday marked this blog’s two year anniversary, counting from the very first post I wrote back in 2016. While two years is not that long in the grand scheme of things, I have to say I am quite proud of myself for sticking with this.

Vietnam-Inspired Mango Pancakes with Honey Coconut Cream

It is no secret that I am a hardcore morning person and that my small daily rituals are pretty much sacred.

However, travel is one of those wonderful but precarious things that has the power to knock everything off center, especially if you happen to be traveling in a place like Vietnam where the culture is completely new and unknown

Almond + Espresso Banana Crumble Muffins

Each place I have visited sparks a completely different kind of inspiration that I always feel compelled and motivated to bring to my work, either in movement, writing, or even in the kitchen. However, because of this fast flush of information and motivation that comes with each journey, the process of landing back home becomes a little bit more difficult to navigate.

Spiced Carrot + Date Loaf Cake

Lately, despite life reaching slightly hectic heights, there is one thing that I have consistently been making time for: books. I have been reading without fail first thing each morning and just before going to sleep. Sometimes it is the same book, sometimes I juggle a non-fiction in the morning and fiction at night (always in that order for some reason), but it has become so rooted into my days that I am packing multiple books for my upcoming trip, just so that I don’t run out of reading material and ruin my comfy little routine.

Almond, Maca, + Chickpea Flour Granola

I am the kind of person who likes to make lists and check things off. I get immense satisfaction from organizing my days and adding up the little accomplishments. While this has served me well in terms of getting things done, staying on top of the small daily tasks and being someone who doesn’t forget deadlines, it also has worked against me in terms of adopting more of a yoga mindset into my life.
