FALAFEL

You know those warring Philly Cheese Steak spots across the street from each other in Philadelphia? Well, welcome to the French version, falafel-style. On this narrow street in the Marais, falafel joints compete for your affections, but L’As Dus Fallafel won my heart in the end. Literally my best bite in Paris and only 5 euro.  This blend of crunchy, […]

S’MEACHES PIE

S’Mores + Peaches, known as S’meaches around here, are sort of a Kitchy Kitchen staple.  I make a ridiculous amount of them every summer and after sharing my love for the tasty treat on Instagram, a follower commented “this should be a pie!” and immediately I thought “YES. YES IT SHOULD.” So here we are with a fresh peach pie, cuddled […]

RAW + VEGAN CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES

I love chocolate. L-O-V-E it. So the idea of avoiding it while detoxing…I really don’t have the will power to deal with that.  But these raw, vegan truffles are a happy go between.  Dates are nature’s candy, containing 110 grams of carbohydrates in a single cup, and having a delicious, honeyed burnt sugar flavor.  They also have barely and cholesterol […]

CHURRO CAKE

CHURRO CAKE. CHURRO CAKE. CHURRO. CAKE. A CAKE MADE OF CHURROS. Sorry for the all-caps, but I mean….CHURRO CAKE. This is serious business. Leslie and Courtney, the ladies behind the epic popup restaurant, Large Marge, are Momofuku Milk alums, so they do NOT play when it comes to cake.

THE HURRICANE COCKTAIL

But for todays’ recipe, I’m taking this classic app and making it vegan AND paleo. If you’re not vegan, just switch out the cauliflower for chicken wings and cook for 10 to […]

FALAFEL SLIDERS

I did a cleanse recently through Renew Juicery, and my favorite part of it, other than the delicious juices, were the amazing falafel burgers. I love the bright, fresh flavors in falafel, and on a grain-free bun with chipotle tahini, it’s the perfect guilt free lunch. These are also fabulous party appetizers, as they’re about slider size. INGREDIENTS For 12 small […]

Sometimes your body needs a hard reset. When your nose is stuffed up, your chest is heavy, your throat is soar, or you just feel gross, a simple remedy of hot water with lemon and honey can be a game changer. But why not go one further? I added himalayan pink salt, cayenne, ginger, and ginseng for extra zip. The spice and heat […]
