I didn’t intend to post two salmon recipes in a row but I did intend to tell you about this one as quickly as possible. This is the salad that has balanced out the burgers and ice cream. It’s the one that has put me back on a healthful track when the weekend’s activity were… Read more »

Flank Steak Tacos // Not Without Salt

I’m not one to repeat recipes but when I do I take notes and then come right here to tell you about it. Because a recipe repeated is a special one in this house. This summer has been one of meals so simple they leave more time for us to be outside, enjoying the sun… Read more »

Salad of Cara Cara Oranges, Avocado and Feta

Salad of Cara Cara oranges, avocado, feta // Not Without Salt

January 1st didn’t start the way I hoped it would: an early morning visit to urgent care after a sleepless night with my little one in pain still battling a sickness that lasted nearly all of his holiday break. “So this is how 2014 is going to be?” I heard myself thinking. Like a crazed… Read more »

Poached Salmon with Cucumber Salsa

Poached Salmon with Cucumber Salsa // Not Without Salt

When the light is golden and hazy I take my time walking down our street to look beyond Ballard and over Queen Anne hill to see the tip of the Space Needle punctuating the top. It towers above the Evergreens just before the hill dips and descends into Lake Union which isn’t seen from my… Read more »

White Bean Salad with Peas and Mint

White Bean Salad with Peas and Mint // Not Without Salt

It’s not out of life’s character to move quickly, to come and go while often leaving a path of destruction not unlike the upended houses and thrown cars that get in the way of a tornado. Right now emails are coming in faster than I can respond to, we’re signing my little girl (my baby!!)… Read more »

Hot Buttered Rum

Hot Buttered Rum // notwithoutsalt.com

I’m filled with an eager excitement thinking on all the things I want to do, see and accomplish this time of year: Twinkling lights of red, green, blue and yellow to be seen while drinking hot chocolate. Gifts to be bought and gifts to be made. Cookies to be enjoyed and vegetables eaten to balance… Read more »

Dating My Husband: Eton Mess

Snowflake Meringues // notwithoutsalt.com

Dating as young, broke college students forced Gabe and I to be creative with our date nights. The truth is we didn’t see this as much of a limitation, we were just happy together. Our homework was done together, every meal in our college cafeteria was eaten together and we did a whole lot of… Read more »

Brussels Sprout Salad with Red Onion and Pecorino

IMG_0354

It is easy to overlook the meager Brussels sprouts for the more traditionally appealing pumpkin pie or mashed potatoes. Those are not difficult to win over fans – wrapped in a flaky crust, layered with spice, whipped with butter and cream – it’s no wonder those dishes get the fame. But today I’m here as… Read more »

Dating My Husband: reconnecting

8077407948_fe91960c11_b

We were driving home late Saturday night from Portland, having just finished our week long road trip in Oregon and relished in the quiet as the kidlets slept in the back of the van. “Did you have fun?” I asked Gabe. Which seems such a simple question and one that I probably should have asked… Read more »

Creamy Parsley Pesto

7980309107_c3593be2b7_b

Last year it was sage, this year parsley. In my small, yet efficient garden I allowed two parsley plants to go to seed at the end of last season. While I was trying to keep up with the sage by smashing it into an aromatic pesto and tucking it into aioli, the parsley was dropping… Read more »

White chocolate covered cherries

  It’s nearly impossible to return from the market without baskets and baskets of berries in various forms this time of year. I’m not the only shopper in the family who falls for their brilliant hues and sweet perfume that lures you in from yards away, my husband is easily wooed too – I adore… Read more »

Dating My Husband

“Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.” ― Robert Frost We want you to get a glimpse at our date night. The mess, the chaos and the joy. We start before the kids are in bed. At times they help us prepare the meal knowing what the food is for – a special date… Read more »

Four ways with deviled eggs

6870587736_89c0d042c8_b

Between the sun peering through my shades waking me in the morning by its brightness to the rusted tin box containing over 50 years of collected recipes that I recently received from my grandma, I am seething with inspiration and brimming with hope as we approach the passing of the gray season and slowly begin… Read more »

a salad, or three

6978353297_76ddc3cc05_b

We’re here in the in between. Winter is on its way out but Spring still feels a world away. We’ve seen the same offenders in our vegetable drawers for months and I, for one, am ready for a change. But the frozen rain and threats of snow persist, keeping the asparagus from venturing out of… Read more »

Maple Hot Cocoa

6514675463_abf28f8499_b

The cookies, cakes, candies and chocolate barks are fine indeed. The crusted roasts still pink and tender inside cozied up to potatoes layered with cheese and bathed in cream satisfy deeply. I will never deny a leftover piece of gently spiced pie for breakfast – pumpkin is a vegetable after all, but the holidays offer… Read more »

Roasted potatoes with minted spinach pesto

6503475489_0e99b4309c_b

Today is the kind of day where chocolate tastes sweeter, silence feels more poignant, and laughter makes me ache with even more joy. Today is the sort where the mess can wait, craft projects pile on top of one another, layered with empty cups of hot cocoa and sticky fingerprints. It’s the kind of day… Read more »

Gluten-Free Chocolate Biscotti

I was both honored and slightly frightened when Shauna (Gluten-Free Girl) asked me to bake a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving recipe. I’ve made a few gluten-free items before but they were completely flour-free. This time I wanted to challenge myself and have fun playing with completely new-to-me flours. I love a good challenge. Now I understand that… Read more »
