You might have heard of butter boards, they’ve been somewhat trending on social media lately, so I was intrigued to make one! Here’s my take on the butter board.         This sharing plate is great for get-togethers, Sayulita dinner parties, and date nights! It’s super easy to throw together and you can switch up the toppings depending on your preferences. All ingredients are found in Sayulita at your local ‘tienda’. start by sourcing some good butter, if you’re into butter you know how important it is to use good quality produce especially if it’s going to be the main character of…

September in Sayulita tends to be one long hot steamy month, and what could be better than a light, healthy breakfast to start the day? Let me introduce you to Turkish eggs. I know what you’re thinking… yogurt and eggs? But let me assure you this is one of the best combinations I’ve ever had and it is now officially my favorite breakfast/brunch/midday snack. Picture this, a creamy dollop of labneh/yogurt, two perfectly poached eggs, drizzled (heavily) with chili garlic butter, topped with herby za’atar, optional goats cheese, salt, and pepper accompanied by some warm toasted bread. Voila! This dish…

I love sourcing unusual fresh ingredients when possible, so I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on some home-grown yellow, orange and marbled tomatoes. These tomato varieties are quite easy to grow at home, you can get seeds packet at places like Home Depot, or even online. If you manage to get your hands on a more exotic tomato I encourage you to save a few seeds and replant, soon enough you’ll have enough tomatoes to create this…
