Sometimes the leisurely aspirations of summer can backfire, and a well-intended weekend turns more towards comedy of error than #summergoals. I had a grand vision for this pasta. It was destined to be the star meal of a weekend camping. But the campground we visited was full, so we drove over a pothole-heavy dirt road […]

Over the past couple months, I have been traveling back and forth between San Francisco and Portland just about every other week for work. Being in California feels like hanging out with an ex-boyfriend whom I’m still kinda in love with, which is to say, it brings up a lot of complex emotions. Traveling for […]

Have you ever cooked during a power outage? That’s how this meal came together. At first I thought that the entire dish could be made easily without electricity, and then I had a brief panic remembering that the pesto needed a machine. But wait. Pesto does’t need a food processor. I recalled the old world […]


  • Taste of France - I made something similar recently, but with parsley instead of pesto. Yummy!
    Your point about electricity is interesting. We don’t really need all the gadgets. To me, they are more of a pain to clean than a help in cooking, so I do most things by hand. I just got a French cookbook from 1929 and it’s so interesting to see how the recipes involve no gadgets whatsoever. Not even refrigeration (I made a piecrust and it was to rest in a “cool” place. Turned out great).ReplyCancel

  • Jenn - I love zoodles! Can’t wait to try this.ReplyCancel

  • Sany - How did they make pesto? I’m curious.ReplyCancel

  • Christiann Koepke - This looks so good!! Love this combo and you’re getting me inspired to do even more with chickpeas !! xReplyCancel

  • Sarah @ Snixy Kitchen - Wow – I’m super impressed that you made this in a power outage! We had our electricity off for a few hours and I panicked that I’d starve (Spoiler: I didn’t).

    I’m also really resonating with the presence and needing to cut loose from social media to find more of it. I realized this weekend while we were in the cabin in the woods with slow service, just how reliant I am on social media for entertainment. Time for a cleanse. <3ReplyCancel

  • Jenny - Looks delish. Can’t wait to make this.ReplyCancel

  • Arminda Lucena - I really liked the recipe tips.ReplyCancel
