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…)

My Women’s Spring Suit Picks for 2014

The water finally warmed up here and it is time to put away my 3/2 full suit. I love being able to feel the water when I’m surfing, and the freedom of not being covered with neoprene. Plus, my legs finally get some time in the sun!

Nicaragua Surfari

Every year Miles and I do a surf trip to somewhere new. The reasons for this are:

  1. To surf.
  2. To surf.
  3. To go some place we’ve never been (this is important).

Warm Quinoa Salad with White Beans, Artichokes and Sage

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

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.

Frosty Key Lime Pie

My mom used to make what she would call “lemonade pies” during the summer back in Connecticut and they were my favorite dessert for August nights on the screened-in porch, after coming home from a long soccer practice. (Think : graham cracker crust, Cool-Whip, and Country Time lemonade mix.) This recipe is a tribute to my mom and those delicious freezer pies, and that one preservative- rich ingredient that I could never give up.

Caribbean Lentil Soup

Lentils are a great source of protein (12 grams per 1/4 cup) and they are really cheap to buy at the store. So you meat lovers, don’t come running to me with the “how will I ever get my protein?!” question.  This soup is spicy, flavorful and filling and you definitely won’t think “where’s the meat?”
