Tis’ the season for pumpkin pies. My soul loves them—my waist does not. So as much as I’m craving that extra slice with a giant dollop of freshly whipped cream, I have to use my willpower and say no. Well…really my uncle Jack had to take the rest of the pie home with him because […]

Tex Mex Cornbread Strata

Tex Mex Cornbread Strata

Strata is one of those great prepare-ahead casseroles that is simple and very versatile. As long as you have eggs and milk, you can use whatever bread and ingredients you have lying around. I happened to have leftover cornbread this week and it was too stale too eat alone so I decided to turn it […]

Cajun Shrimp and Rice Remoulade

Cajun Shrimp and Rice Remoulade

I went to New Orleans a few years ago and fell in love with the food. It’s truly impossible not to. Since then- using Cajun spices and the same flavor profiles has become a small part of my cooking technique. It’s something I hope I can only expand on. Does anyone have a Nola grandma […]

Apple Pear Ginger Butter

Apple Pear Ginger Butter

Did you go apple picking this weekend and now you’re having apple overload? That was me a week ago. I made apple and peach cobbler, fed the kids apples at pretty much every meal, added them to everything I can think of, and there was still an entire bag. Since I was headed to Boston […]

Southern Style Apple & Peach Cobbler

Southern Style Apple & Peach Cobbler

It was the very last of the peaches this past week. Stone fruit season is officially over! As is summer. So sad! So I longingly bought up the last of the peaches and paired them with the new seasonal fruit—apples. It’s the unofficial passing of the torch. I paired them together to create this delicious […]

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo wings have been a long-time favorite in my household. Unfortunately, wings are often floured, and even when they’re not, they usually serve up as much saturated fat and cholesterol as they do heat. This recipe banishes the bad stuff, but keeps the spice. Easy to put together, my Buffalo hummus sauce magically transforms Brussels […]

Raisin Lemon Scones

Raisin Lemon Scones

I’ve made these scones in several different variations, all with tasty results. They are inspired, once again, from one of my favorite cookbooks, A Homemade Life. You can try lemon raspberry, whole wheat flour and mixed berry, ginger apricot, or even chocolate chip! Scones are hard to mess up. Just add roughly half a cup […]

Chicken Paprikash

Chicken Paprikash

I first had Chicken Paprikash when a chef I was working for made it for the kitchen’s family meal. It was such an easy process and it becomes this really feel-good meal. I tend to forget about how simple and delicious this recipe is—this is my first time making it in over two years—but once […]

Roasted Beet & Lentil Burger

Roasted Beet & Lentil Burger

Even though nothing compares to actual burgers, in my mind, I really loved this sandwich—filling, yet I still felt light after eating it.   Fridge: 2 cups roasted beets, cubed 1½ cups lentils, cooked 1 Tbs Italian parsley, minced Counter: Zest of ½ lemon Juice of ½ lemon (approx. 1½ tbs) Pantry: 2½ Tbs flour […]

Simply Citrus & Avocado Salad

Simply Citrus & Avocado Salad

The following is hardly a recipe—it’s so easy to throw together. This would actually be more of a winter salad in California, since oranges are in season in January, so I’m cheating on the seasonal thing a bit here…But it’s certainly tasty on a warm summer evening. Ingredients: 2 medium navel oranges 2 large, ripe […]
