Bring on the refreshing salads and anything you can char up on the grill… it’s summertime! There’s something just so nostalgic about the foods we eat during this season that evoke memories of warm nights and being surrounded by friends and family. I’d argue that the best recipes for this time of year are the simplest and highlight the season’s ripest ingredients- like fresh and sweet tomatoes!
Egyptian Tomato Salad
Three of some of the best ingredients: tomatoes, bread, and garlic. This Egyptian Tomato recipe could not be more simple and tasty. Combine aromatics and pour over tomatoes. The longer the tomatoes sit, the more flavorful, making this dish the best to prepare in advance.
Panzanella is oh-so refreshing and so easy to prepare. Crunchy french bread with crisp vegetables like bell peppers and cucumbers drizzled in a zesty vinaigrette scream summertime dinner parties.
Whipped Feta with Roasted Tomatoes
Ever had bruschetta? This Whipped Feta with Roasted Tomatoes is a spin on bruschetta with creamy and tangy feta cheese. Fresh herbs and sweet roasted cherry tomatoes are the absolute perfect pair.
I am paying homage to my the glory of California beaches in my limited edition Gold Coast Soap. Having been in California my whole life, I've had the profoundly rare experience of being surrounded by nature and being so close to the Pacific Ocean.
365 days has gone by, countless batches of soap and skin care essentials, many moments of overwhelming stress and happiness, one major studio move - and here we are! It’s hard to believe that we’ve done an entire year battling COVID-19, but I see a bright future ahead of all of us.
