Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Is it too late for one more festive cookie recipe?? I’m going to say no! I didn’t bake half as many treats as I normally do this year – life has just been crazy – but I did find time to make a few tried […]

Funfetti Cupcakes

Funfetti Cupcakes

The other day I was mindlessly pushing my cart down the baking isle at Cub Foods eyeballing the instant puddings and cake mixes that look soooo good  that I also know I’ll never buy (this is a regular occurrence for me).  I used to indulge […]

Spiced Nuts

Spiced Nuts

One of my favorite ways to class up a centerpiece is by turning it into a big bowl of something festive and edible.During the holidays, sweets are every where: the office, the convenience stores, well-meaning friends and family. It can be hard to say no […]

Dairy Free Chocolate Puddings

Dairy Free Chocolate Puddings

I haven’t made chocolate pudding in ages.  Not because I don’t like it (I freaking love the stuff) and not because I don’t have time (it literally takes 10mn) but honestly because I know that it requires milk and occasionally butter, and I don’t stock […]

Chocolate Lava Cakes

Chocolate Lava Cakes

The other night I had the strongest craving for chocolate.  Like I’m talking, super intense.  I didn’t just want any chocolate either, I wanted melt-in-your-mouth, ooey, gooey, sinfully delicious chocolate lava cakes! And thankfully, I have a go-to recipe that can make that exact thing, […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

I recently read a quote in one of my cooking magazines that couldn’t have rung more true.  I don’t remember it word for word, but the general gist was, you can buy too many carrots and beets and have them get soft and wrinkly before […]

Pad Thai

Pad Thai

Okay, I’m going to start this off with a disclaimer. I am pretty sure this isn’t an authentic recreation of Pad Thai. Whew. Got that out of the way. That being said, please don’t stop reading. It might not be strictly authentic, but I can […]

Everything Blondies

Everything Blondies

For some reason I had a major sweets craving kick in last week.  I NEVER have that happened, so I was unprepared to say the least, when it hit out of the blue like that!  I tried satisfying it with my old standby of a […]

Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Soup

My all time favorite vegetable is a tomato. OK, so it’s not a vegetable, but still, close enough! Every year I plant 4 or five hearty, heirloom varieties of tomatoes, starting them indoors in April, gently fostering their growth throughout the month, and then transplanting […]

Sarson ka Saag Paneer

Sarson ka Saag Paneer

So first off, I don’t know Hindi.  I’ve never been to India.  Sometimes I really have no idea what I’m doing when I’m in the kitchen making Indian food.  I’m trying to be authentic with my flavors and combos, but in all honesty I’m totally […]
