Aperol Gin Punch

A beautiful, bright, sweet and sour cocktail garnished with fresh thyme and orange. This can be batched up ahead of time for easy event serving.

Roasted Cauliflower, Cabbage, and Cashews Tossed in Spicy Tahini

This is my version of Smitten Kitchen’s Crispy Cabbage and Cauliflower Salad recipe. I used napa cabbage instead of savoy, I squeezed more veggies onto the sheet pan (including onions in the mix), and I slightly adjusted the dressing amounts/ingredients. I also added cashews in at the end, which really rounds out the dish with a flavor and texture that I love.

Pimienta Albahaca Ahumada

This smoky mezcal cocktail has sweetness and herbal flavors from red bell pepper, fresh basil, and amaro, yet is quite refreshing shaken with lime juice and served over ice.


Yet another fool-proof, delicious recipe from Smitten Kitchen. Rich homemade ricotta.
