Give me all the chocolate please. Well, let me rephrase that. Please give me anything that has to do with chocolate and peanut butter. I absolutely cannot resist that flavor combination. And don’t even get me started on what happens when you put them together in a molten chocolate cake – it is the most unbelievable dessert out there. You should probably go make it, right now.Read More
Passion fruit wasn’t something I really discovered until I moved to California. Growing up in Florida, we didn’t have it for some reason. You would think that in a tropical climate like South Florida it would be growing everywhere. Maybe it was and I had no idea! (Which is a bummer because I love passion fruit.)Read More
I am a big fan of pizza and could probably eat pizza (or tacos) pretty much everyday of the week. Although that sounds delicious, it is probably not the most healthy of diets. Enter caulfilower pizza. When I want pizza but want one that is a little more nutritious, this is what I turn to. Although it is not exactly like pizza dough, this cauliflower pizza is pretty darn close.
Feel free to put all of your favorite toppings on the crust. I like old school pizza sauce, cheese and basil but the sky is the limit in what you can top with pizza crust.Read More
Did you know that you can use a grill just like an oven? Today I am using my Traeger to spend the day outside, grill and make dessert all at the same time.
I love entertaining and entertaining outside is even better. Today I am making an apple and blackberry galette with a rosemary crust. Perfect for a sunny fall day spent outside.Read More
I love food brands that remind me of a time and place in my life. Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee at Home is one of those brands. Going to school in Boston, I like every other college kid in town, had an iced coffee every morning, even when it was below freezing and snowing. I even interned at the advertising agency that held the Dunkin’ account and made some horribly embarrassing advertising campaign for Dunkin’ Donuts as my final project that thankfully has been lost (hopefully).Read More
Chicken pot pie is my ultimate comfort food. Ever since I was a kid, this has always been my favorite recipe….well let’s be honest, I was just in it for the biscuit topping.Read More
I have always been a fan of eggplant especially in the summer. Right now the farmer’s markets are overflowing with eggplants of all varieties. I love all the different color purples that range between the lightest almost white shade of purple to the deep dark almost black purples. I am constantly amazed by the color of fruits and vegetable.Read More
This past summer we embarked on an epic European vacation. One of these days I will get around to posting some of those pictures here, but until then lets talk about this apple pie/apple cake situation that we encountered on our trip. The first leg of our trip was LA to Amsterdam. We later went onto Denmark and Sweden but for the purpose of this post, lets talk all about Amsterdam and that apple cake.Read More
I made it to the farmer's market this morning for the first time in a while. I try and go once a week or once every other week, just to feel inspired by what is in season. Truth be told I don't get all of my groceries from the market, I am just not that organized, but what I don't get from the market I fill in with trips to Trader Joes and Whole Foods.Read More
Not much beats homemade ice cream....maybe homemade salted caramel ice cream topped with more salted caramel.Read More
This week's fridge foraging is what to do with all of my leftover greens.
We drove home from Montana to LA on Monday and I had a ton of greens that I didn't use in Montana so they made the long trek to LA with us. Needless to say they had seen better days. What to do with them? Make an updated version of baked eggs with kale, tomatoes and chickpeas.Read More
In this week's version of fridge foraging I think I am getting a little excited about the possibility of fall. I am in Montana for the week and there is a crisp fall feeling in the morning so it has got me craving all sorts of comfort food.Read More
In this week's fridge foraging I am showing you the creamiest corn soup out there that has absolutely no dairy in it.Read More
I was recently reminded of how much I love scallops but I never seem to make them for some reason.Read More
When I was in cooking school I have the most vivid memory of my chef instructor telling me how when she was 8 she learned how to make choux pastry and would often make herself, as an eight year old!!, a plate of cream puffs. I love that image.Read More
Chicken pot pie is my total comfort food. We ate a ton of it growing up and it continues to be a meal that I turn to whenever I need a hearty comfortable meal.Read More
