Sometimes you just need a big slice of homemade buckwheat strawberry date bread with a generous spread of @traderjoes salted Valencia peanut butter, sprinkled with @grandyoats coconola served with a side of cinnamoned apples. Because, Friday. *Buckwheat strawberry date bread recipe is by @lauraleabalanced, only it’s actually a recipe for muffins. You can find it on her website. Happy Friday, darlings. 💝 #samanthasbreadandbutter#llbalanced
Chilly mornings call for creamy brown rice grits with fluffy spoonfuls of @gtskombucha’s coconut yogurt 🥥, the most caramelly medjool dates, warm crispy roasted walnuts, the dreamiest @artisanaorganics cashew butter, and sweet drizzles of raw honey. 🍯 Btw, these dates 👆🏽 are hands down the absolute best I’ve ever had. Even better, they’re from @equalexchange’s Palestinian Farmer’s Box 📦. Purchasing a box of your own (filled with dates and other Palestinian goodies) is a great way to support Palestine 🇵🇸. Happy Wednesday, friends. ❤️ #samanthasbreadandbutter#slowfood#foodculture#foodwithpurpose
It’s a rainy day here so I felt like something warm and comforting for lunch 🌧 I slept late and skipped breakfast, so whipping up a quick shakshouka sounded like a perfect first meal of the day — a meal that feels like breakfast but is also appropriate for lunch (and dinner!) This shakshouka I made with homemade tomato sauce that I had on hand from a few days ago, an organic egg, freshly grated parmesan and some parsley. I paired it with one of my favorite store bought gluten free breads (one of the simplest/healthiest I’ve found — I’ll get the name and drop it here later) and it totally hit the spot. Hope you guys are having happy, happy, happy Tuesday 🤩 P.S. I have the EASIEST fool proof shakshouka recipe on the blog. Link in bio 😘 #samanthasbreadandbutter
a little bird told me it was national coffee day!! ☕️ yes, this is chai 👆🏽, but let me tell you — one of the best cups of coffee you’ll find in manhattan is from the same spot where i picked up this sweet, spicy, frothy chai latte: @joecoffeecompany 👌🏽 #nationalcoffeeday#samanthasbreadandbutter
#fbf to a few weeks ago, enjoying a homemade dinner in the garden. 🌿🍷 it’s actually not much of a flashback, but when the weather turns cold so quick that you end up sick in bed, warm summer evenings sure feel like a distant memory. 😌 hope you guys have a great friday evening, doing whatever it is you’re doing! i’ll be here in bed, with @netflix and a big old cuppa tea ☕️ #flashbackfriday#summernights#samanthasbreadandbutter
I’m sick for the first time in a loooong time, and I forgot how bad it is you guys 😩 Especially bc delicious sweets like this 👆🏽don’t exactly fit into the category of “healing foods”.
It’s been at least a year and a half since the last time I came down with a cold or the flu, but I think the combination of drastic temperature fluctuations here on the east coast + work/life pressures + so many people being sick around me finally wore me down.
The upside of being sick? It’s a time to slow down, to pause, to rest, to rejuvenate, to rebuild, to reflect (and to watch an unreasonable amount of movies on Netflix). You’re body is insisting you do so. Make sure you listen. ❤️

Happy autumn, you guys!! 🍁 We’ll be having a festive dinner tonight w friends + first bonfire of the season & I AM SO EXCITED, especially bc it’s slightly chilly outside, there’s a crisp feeling in the air/nice breeze, and the leaves are just starting to fall — it will be the PERFECT evening for a fire 🔥
Ok now for the important stuff: FOOD. Are you guys ready for all the pumpkin & squash recipes? Savory AND sweet? I sure am 😍 I’m going to work on getting more fall recipes up on the blog for you, but in the meantime, if you haven’t tried my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins yet, they are a MUST you guys. They’re perfectly M O I S T and sweet + they’re gluten free, grain free, dairy free & refined sugar free if you sub @lilys_sweets_chocolate chips. Recipe is on the blog — link in bio! Hope you all have a fabulous first day of fall 😘
About that mushroom biryani I made last night (in my story). . . it turned out SO WELL you guys. The combination of the coconut rice, mushrooms, onions, garlic, almonds and dates along with the flavors of all the Indian spices made for an absolutely divine, satiating, nourishing meal. This recipe is a perfect one for fall — warm and cozy — and I can’t wait to share it with you. I’ll give you a heads up when it’s on the blog, in the next couple weeks! Hope you’re all having a lovely start to your evening. ✨ #slowfood#slowliving#samanthasbreadandbutter
