If anyone has seen my recipe videos, they were shot by my talented friend Autumn Theodore.
During our shoots (the above one is us shooting my Pumpkin Bars), I'd laugh harder with her than I had with anyone in my entire life. Like, sometimes we'd be on the floor. Autumn's energy, epic sense of humor, and positivity radiates. She has a unique sense of confidence and lightheartedness about her that I've always adored. Autumn found out last week that she has a brain tumor. Her surgery is scheduled for next week. As a self-employed photographer, please consider donating to her Go Fund Me to help lessen the burden of her medical bills. Thinking of you tons, Autumn!
Northstar brunch on Saturday before we headed to Youngstown for a wedding. I had the Big Burrito in a bowl with over easy eggs, plenty of hot sauce, and coffee.
Love this guy.
The usual overnight steel cut oatmeal with berries, almond butter, mulberries, and cinnamon. I take it with me in a glass Pyrex to Alchemy Grandview and heat it up whenever I have some time to sit in between customers in the morning.
Strawberry avocado toast and regular avocado toast with za'atar, lemon, and micro greens.
The best sweet potato cheddar quesadillas with pickled jalapeños plus salad from Blue Apron (click here to get $50 off your first 2 weeks!).
Chipotle burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, fajita veg, tomato salsa, corn, guac, and lettuce.
Aladdin's leftover Lebanese salata with baba ganoush, lentils, rice, and hot sauce.
And lots of unpictured loaded smoothies at Alchemy.
All the grilled things! We just got this new grill and we're getting plenty of experience with it. I made shrimp using this recipe and also grilled up sliced sweet potatoes (amazing), peppers, local asparagus from our CSA.
The second night we had leftovers alongside these yummy balsamic sautéed mushrooms, romaine salad dressed with lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper, brown basmati cooked in a mix of coconut milk, water, and salt. It was the best rice ever!
Tacos in organic blue corn tortillas with avocado cream (avocado, lime juice, water, salt), cabbage collard slaw, salsa, and hot sauce plus a big salad on the side.
Toast with hummus, za'atar, purple kraut, and micro greens.
KIND dark chocolate nuts and sea salt bar. Best road trip snack!
Craving chips and salsa hardcore lately.
Berry crisp (I've been doubling it) with Breyer's vanilla!
I've been loving cold juicy pineapple. And grapefruit La croix on the deck!
A giant smoothie I whipped up for me and Jeff when we got home from Canton on Sunday afternoon. I packed it full with frozen banana, pineapple, cherries, blueberries, kale, peanut butter, hemp seeds, and almond milk.
Donuts on Sunday morning courtesy of Peace, Love, and Little Donuts in Canton.
These super tasty Chocolate Chip Cookies with salt!
And a zillion cookies I didn't photograph from the classic cookie table at the wedding this past weekend. Happy mid week!
