Ever since tasting the salad of baby carrots with cress, radishes, and mole poblano at Alex Stupak's Empellon, I've been obsessed with the idea of warm (temperature) carrots and warm (flavored) spices.

These soft and chewy flatbreads are accompanied by an easy, but addictive, salted honey butter.

This recipe combines a pork-based miso ramen with two brand-spanking new creations; my own personal humble additions to the ramen universe. The first is a crispy braised pork shoulder, while the second is a sweet, spicy, and bitter aromatic condiment. They're going to stick around my repertoire, and I hope you consider incorporating them into your own because—not to toot my own horn—they are damn delicious.

Black tahini offers a sweeter, nuttier flavor than tahini made with white sesame seeds. With such black gold at my finger tips, I decided to add it to a hummus that could stand up to it, pigment-wise. The color alone is sure to turn a few heads at your next gathering.
I'll warn you now that these make me think of silly romantic things like warm summer sunsets over the Aegean. But hey, honey + Medjool dates will do that to you.

I can remember the first time I ate a protein bar. It was between games at a high school volleyball tournament. Our team was huddled in a hallway, passing around bags of snacks. Suddenly something landed in my paw that wasn't my highly anticipated soft and chewy La Bagel Delight sesame bagel. It was a wrapped lemon Luna Bar.

This year my Halloween costume was a bit of a bust. I dressed up as the Green Fairy, intending for people to make the connection between the Green Fairy, which is a nickname for Absinthe, and my boyfriend's costume as a 19th century, bohemian French painter. Everyone thought I was Tinkerbell. On the positive side, I was left with a bottle of Absinthe which we had bought to "add authenticity" to our costumes.
Equally at home in savory and sweet dishes, sesame seeds are beloved the world over for their delicate nutty flavor.
