shakshuka – savory egg dish with rich tomatoes

Let’s be honest – when summer rolls around, I get lazy with cooking. When I’d rather stroll outside than sweat in the kitchen, I fancy simple dishes like Shakshuka that yield delicious results. One pot, one casual hour of stirring, and tons of forgivability. Don’t have the exact amount of garlic? Forget the cumin? Only have 4 eggs instead of 6? That is quite alright. It will still taste amazing. As a thick stew of rich, fragrant tomatoes with soft-boiled eggs, Shakshuka is the ultimate breakfast.

I love to serve this as a no-hassle, tasty, and healthful brunch item when friends come over. Shakshuka is impressively flavorful and hearty without the fuss, so I can get on with making actually intensive food. (Like homemade grissini. Wow, never again.)

roasted tomato romesco and zucchini – savory summer dish

It’s awesome being in San Francisco. Besides the crazy notion that every day is the same beautiful weather, this city has incredible farmers markets, fresh sour batard in any store, and Baja-style Mexican food on every corner. Wedding diet, say what?

So despite the temptation to eat out every night, the insanely-fresh California produce makes it easy to cook at home. And, come on, it’s summer! In my opinion all the best veggies, fruits, and herbs come out in style ahora, namely cukes, tomatoes, watermelon, and basil.

This recipe, Roasted Tomato Romesco and Zucchini, definitely celebrates my all-time favorite season. Juicy, ripe tomatoes are roasted until they burst, mixed with garlic and toasted almonds for a chunky, flavorful sauce, then laden on a meaty base of lightly sautéed zucchini. (I’ve always loved tomatoes…but not zucchini. That limp-noodle-of-a-veggie didn’t impress me as a kid, but now I realize it was unjustly overcooked. With just a simple sauté, this green squash has a beautiful grassy flavor with a slight sweetness.)

strawberry basil sorbet – so long, nyc!

Summer. Is. Here. And with it, an exciting announcement: my fiancé and I are moving to San Francisco! It’s been a beautiful three years in NYC (almost to the day), and I’m going to miss his family and my friends like no other; but I am also excited to bring this new change into our lives. Bring on the sourdough and redwoods!


So with under two weeks left here, I’ve been saying a slow goodbye through food. Whether it’s gradually checking off my restaurant bucket list or just grabbing falafel with a friend, every meal is a souvenir. And most recently, I’ve been scooping up every pint of ripe, New Joy-sey strawberries at the farmers market. I mean, look at these jewels. Holy cow.
