Easy No-Knead Pizza Dough (Part One)

I honestly can’t remember the last time we ordered pizza. We’ve tried a lot of different ways to make pizza dough, and this is by far the easiest to make.

The whole process takes about 10 minutes, and you don’t even need to get your hands dirty.  The dough stretches without getting holes, and when it bakes it forms this perfect crust that is crunchy on the outside and light and airy on the inside. You seriously won’t want to order pizza again once you start making your own. (more…)

Miles and I just got back from a few weeks in Nicaragua. We surfed. We napped in hammocks. We ate rice and beans. We had such a rad time.

While we were gone I did some brainstorming for SEA SALT, so get ready for some new recipes that I promise will make your summer both delicious and relaxing.

Sesame Ginger Quinoa Salad

Sesame Ginger Quinoa Salad

I made this salad for the first time last summer while Miles was off surfing in Sri Lanka with his bros, and it was so good I literally ate it every meal.  The first time I made it I was inspired by another recipe I had come across, but since then I have made this so many times that I have altered it to become my own. The flavors get even better when it sits for a day or two, and it is a perfect cold salad packed with protein, veggies and the most delicious dressing of all time.
