Having a birthday five days before Halloween always made it easy for me to love the holiday. It’s one of the few I truly look forward to, and, as a result, I spend a lot of time preparing for it and I’m not afraid to go all out, even for a tame night in entertaining Trick-or-Treating kids. Whether you’re staying at home or gallivanting about town, here are some great affordable DIY tricks to make your Halloween thrilling.

Sunday seems to be on the road to becoming a regular bake day for me. While everyone is out absorbing the last strong rays of summer sunshine in the parks and on terraces in Paris, I'm more inclined to stay in and toil in the kitchen. The last two Sundays are no exception. I've been going through a cookie phase and have been trying out lots of different combinations, textures and sizes and since I had a bag of sweetened coconut to use up (a thoughtful gift from a visiting friend from t...

I’ve never been able to replicate the perfect crisp-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside texture of fried tofu at home. I’m a little fry shy as I’ve imagined misjudging the temperature of the oil and setting my hair on fire numerous times.
But I totally conquered my fear and made the most delicious golden crispy tofu at home the other night! No need for gallons of oil or calls to the fire department.

I am, by nature, a very lazy cook. The less dishes and prep work cooking a meal involves the more likely I am to succeed in making it to where it is actually edible. I love leftovers and quick easy snacks. What’s better than meal that can be served cold, involves no re-heating, and can go with almost any protein? Try this peach salsa and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by it’s tangy spice.

Fall is here! And to me that means tights, pretty leaves and apples! If you’re like me you’re going to end up with way more apples than you could ever possibly eat by the time it’s mid-October. I can’t ever pass up an apple picking afternoon or dirt-cheap apple prices at the grocery store.
And if you’re like me not only do you love applesauce, but it sure comes in handy when you’re vegan baking. Applesauce picks up where eggs left off, binding together your batter, and making your tr...

Seriously. I’m at max-cap with all the life crap and responsibility crap and new fall television shows starting crap. I got too much going on. The last thing I want to do is think about ingredients and groceries and cooking and ugh, doing the dishes.
I can’t do it. But I can do this pasta dish, If I were a certain lispy TV chef, I’d say this was dead simple. But I’m not, so let’s just say it’s super easy. It’s got barely any ingredients and only one saucepan to wash.

It can’t be good that I’m sat shivering under a blanket complaining about the cold when it’s 65 degrees out. I think this record-breaking summer of heat has totally messed with my internal temperature gauge because somehow 65 degrees might as well be the dead of winter as far as my frozen toes are concerned.

So many people are infatuated with France, particularly Paris, without ever having visited. It has an inimitable mystique and charm that keep dreamers enthralled with what they imagine life to be like – undoubtedly a more glamorous depiction than it actually is. Many might never have the opportunity to experience the wonders of wandering aimlessly along the Seine or sitting at a café for hours watching effortlessly chic (and sometimes the fashionably disastrous) Parisian women pass by....

It’s sad to say goodbye to summer with its bountiful harvests and beautiful weather, but I have to admit I’m pretty excited about tights, apple picking and big old roasts for dinner night after night. I know, I know, I’ve given you a few too many roast recipes at this point. But this one’s different, I swear, because this one involves grapes!
