Pineapple Cardamom Coffee Cake with Coconut Crumb Topping

For years I was the girl who only ordered New York-style coffee cake at coffee shops.

Once I saw that mile-high topping on display, I wouldn’t even waste a passing glance at anything else. (more…)

Savory Spiced Sour Cream Zucchini Muffins

Is your zucchini crop starting to come in yet?

Because zucchini is so wonderfully predictable, we all know that if you’re a gardener, soon enough you’ll have it coming out your ears. You’ll be dropping of bags to friends, family, and neighbors. (more…)

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Panzanella Salad

There is nothing better than fresh, local tomatoes in their peak season.

I crave them just about nonstop this time of year, and have been known to make dinner out of them for the better part of a week straight (and I could have happily gone longer if I hadn’t run out of tomatoes and if the farmer I bought them from weren’t a two-hour car ride away). (more…)

Frozen Cappuccino

What’s your favorite way to cool down on a hot summer day?

For years when I was younger, swimming was my cool-off method of choice. While we were growing up, my sister and I were such junkies we took swimming in any form we could get it. We loved heading to the town pool (ick, it’s so gross to think about that now!), wading in the creek behind our backyard (double ick!), and heading to our grandparents’ house because they had a pool.

Za’atar-Spiced Chicken and Bell Pepper Sandwiches with Labneh

When I think of a picnic, I always think of fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, some kind of cooked greens, iced tea, and a big chocolate cake.

I realize that this sounds very Southern, which is odd to me because I’m from New York…and I can’t ever remember having a picnic like this in my life! (Who knows, maybe I did when I was a kid and I just don’t remember.) (more…)

2-Grain Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

“You want to make potato salad again?”, Mike asked me one day.

We were headed to a potluck pool party later that day and he was apparently sick of potato salad. (I can’t blame him though; I brought our favorite potato salad to three different parties in the past month! Truth be told, I’m a little sick of potato salad too.) (more…)

Vanilla Pineapple Popsicles {Popsicle Week}

Vanilla Pineapple Popsicles

A while ago when my friend brought me back wood apples from Sri Lanka, she also brought me another sweet treat: pineapple!

If you’ve never had Sri Lankan pineapple, it is surprisingly quite different from Hawaiian pineapple. Fresh, ripe Sri Lankan pineapple is sweeter and has a deeper pineapple flavor than Hawaiian pineapple. Sri Lankan pineapple still has the pleasant sweet/sour taste that Hawaiian pineapple has, but with less of a tart tang and more of a sweet, natural concentrated pineapple flavor. (more…)

Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.

But it got me thinking that I need to come up with a good recipe for homemade chocolate muffins… (more…)
