  • Three tahini pumpkin cookies

Pumpkin Tahini Cookies

I was curious to see how tahini and pumpkin puree would taste together in a cookie spiced with cinnamon and dotted with bittersweet chocolate chips, and I'm here to tell you, it tastes great!

  • bowl of pasta with mackerel and arugula

Pasta with Yogurt, Mackerel, and Arugula

My nutritionist buddy, Lulu Cook, the co-author of The Complete Anti-Inflammatory Diet for Beginners has been encouraging me to eat protein, about 20-25 grams per meal to be exact. Scanning what was in the house I realized I could throw a pasta dinner together quickly.  I had Greek yogurt, arugula, smoked mackerel, and lemon zest.

  • Nutella thumbprint cookie and a glass of milk.

Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

I'm a huge fan of toasted hazelnuts.  And an even bigger fan of toasted hazelnuts and chocolate combined. Try these cookies with a big glass of milk.

About Me

Growing up in a wonderful family of farmers and cooks, I had no choice other than to become a chef. My childhood was my own personal Greek festival, weekends spent at the farm exploring the agricultural wonders surrounded by cousins, eating produce off the vine or branch, dancing, singing, and feasting.  It is this background that has shaped my career and cooking philosophy which is, beautiful ingredients, simply prepared.

In addition to creating a restaurant in my mother’s kitchen at age 6, I cooked and baked my way around both coasts and returned to the Bay Area to open my own restaurant and catering company called Bombar’s.  We closed the catering company in 2008 and I have been writing, teaching cooking, developing recipes, and consulting ever since.

I have published three cookbooks available in my Amazon Shop. Two on anti-inflammatory diets, and one on the health benefits of Mediterranean eating.  To learn more about my professional background find me on Linked In.

I spend my days thinking about what to eat next and am happy to take you along for the journey. I hope you enjoy the recipes and would love to hear from you as you try them, whether my books and on this blog.
