Strawberry Port Ice Cream

Strawberry Port Ice Cream

This ice cream seemed the perfect fit for a day like today in Southern California– it’s 90 degrees and feels like summer is officially here (not that it ever really left). If you have an ice cream maker, homemade ice cream is not a terribly time consuming project, and the results are beyond worth it. […]

Gluten Free Chocolate Raisin Muffins

Gluten Free Chocolate Raisin Muffins

I decided to try to make something passable as a muffin, without the flour. I was making this recipe up as I went along and ended up being really happy with the results. Luckily, I wrote down my process. These muffins are made mostly of nuts, seeds and fruit, so they are high in fiber […]

Weekend Frittata

Weekend Frittata

Here’s a very simple, almost fool-proof recipe for a lazy weekend morning brunch. I think this frittata alone is reason enough to purchase a cast iron pan. You can sauté your veggies and then stick it right in the oven to bake the eggs. It’s the perfect way to use whatever veggies happen to be […]

Savory Potato Bacon Tart

Savory Potato Bacon Tart

There is no doubt this recipe is indulgent. I mean potatoes, bacon, butter, cheese, and pie. I’d be delusional if I tried to pass this off as health food. However, I’m a big believer in giving yourself a small amount of really ridiculously delicious foods with good quality ingredients and not worrying about the calories. […]

Blanched Vegetables w/ Garlic-Thyme Aioli

Blanched Vegetables w/ Garlic-Thyme Aioli

This is inspired from one of my favorite meals that we eat during summer sessions at Quillisascut Farm School: a heaping platter of lightly blanched seasonal veggies with various homemade aioli for dipping. We pass the platter around, scooping up mounds of garlicky, spicy sauce, and the veggies act as a nutritious vehicle. Since I’m always […]

Potato Leek Beet Soup

Potato Leek Beet Soup

Hello from Montreal! I just arrived here last night and am visiting my cousin before heading out on the rest of a 12-day long east coast adventure! It’s 25 degrees out right now, which is fun for this Southern California girl. I can actually think of winter as soup season again instead of craving summer […]

Feel the Rhythm with “Gershwin Alone”

Feel the Rhythm with “Gershwin Alone”

I wasn’t so sure what to think as I walked up to the Pasadena Playhouse the other night to see George Gershwin Alone, the one-man show created by pianist, actor ad composer Hershey Felder and focused entirely on the works of George Gershiwn. I do love theatre and music (and, most of all, musical theatre), […]
