Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve {Frozen Treat Week}

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

DSC_1572(small)

By now I’m sure most of you have heard of banana soft serve. (If not, you will absolutely die when you try it.)

Also called “yonanas”, banana soft serve is frozen banana blended with whatever flavorings (like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, espresso powder, etc.) or add-ins (like toasted almonds, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.) you like. The best part is that it has the same creamy texture as soft serve ice cream. (The first time I ever saw banana soft serve was on Gena’s brilliant blog, Choosing Raw.)

As you can imagine, this delicious treat is incredibly versatile and completely perfect for when you want ice cream but don’t want ice cream. (Ladies, you know what I mean.) (more…)

3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet {Frozen Treat Week}

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

DSC_1349(small)2

There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for.

Silly things.

Like this caramelized onion + goat cheese omelet, this cabbage hash + fried eggs, or this pretty little breakfast number.

Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes more indulgent than healthy), like this cherry-chocolate sorbet that can be easily whipped up when a sweet craving strikes. (more…)

Fat Toad Farm’s Caramel {Giveaway}

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Armed with a spoon in the kitchen can be a dangerous thing.

Heading over to the pantry, there are things like peanut butter and coconut-vanilla syrup. And the fridge can be even more of a hot zone, housing spoon-able treats like pudding, custard, mousse, or jam. Or yogurt treats.

And caramel. Always rich caramel, with its beautiful flavor notes. (more…)

Are you a coffee drinker or a tea drinker? Or maybe hot cocoa is more your thing. Whatever you drink that gets you going, it’s likely that you can brew it in a Keurig…I’ve even seen K-Cups for hot spiced cider and iced coffee! (I know, iced coffee. How I love you.) I’ve had a Keurig for about six months and I can tell you that it gets more than its fair share of use; we use it just about every day and sometimes more than once a day. I am absolutely thrilled to be giving away a Keurig! (more…)

Pepper + Onion Pasta with Sausage {Giveaway}

Monday, January 28th, 2013

DSC_5720(small)I can’t resist picking up a unique (or better yet, strange) food item, and even something that seems as ordinary as pasta is no different. (Food bloggers, I know you get this…everyone else, I know it’s a little weird.) (more…)

Pistachio + Rosemary White Pizza {And a Gourmet Oil + Vinegar Giveaway}

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

DSC_8534(small)Never in a million years would I have thought that I would get excited about vinegar. Vinegar, of all things. Either my life has gotten that dull (lol!) or this vinegar is really that exciting. An eternal optimist, I’m going with scenario two. :)

A couple months ago I received a few oil and vinegar samples from Vom Fass. Right away the name intrigued me; it means “from the cask” and it conjures up an old-world, artisanal feel, doesn’t it? I don’t know what I was expecting when I tried the samples, but whatever it was, everything I tried exceeded all my expectations. Scratch that; everything blew my mind. (more…)

Almond-Crusted Salmon with Gingered Grapefruit Relish {And a Huge Superfoods Giveaway}

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

DSC_7843(small)I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a wonderful start! With so many people making resolutions to get healthier, I thought this would be the perfect time to share a recipe that is as nourishing and healthy as it is delicious. It’s the kind of meal you’d get in a spa for lunch if you were taking the whole day to pamper yourself. (more…)

Where to Find Middle Eastern Ingredients {Giveaway: 4 Middle Eastern Ingredient Prize Packs, Each with a Signed Copy of My Cookbook}

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

frontbookcover(small)Today’s post is a fun one.

Not only is it a giveaway (four giveaways, actually!), but I’m hoping to be able to convince you to try something that you might not normally try. To step out of your comfort zone and discover something that’s as rich in culture as it is delicious. You never know, maybe you’ll find a new family favorite!

In some cases, you might want to try something new, but have no idea where to look for ingredients… (more…)

Russian Tea Cakes {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats} and A $25 King Arthur Flour Giveaway

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

DSC_6636(small)It’s the last day of my 7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats event, and for my final recipe I wanted to share something from my childhood.

My mom has made these cookies for as long as I can remember. Which, oddly enough, has nothing to do with the fact that my family is Russian on my dad’s side and “Russian” is in the title of these cookies (and note that I have no idea whether these cookies are authentically Russian or not!).

My mom usually refers to them as Butterballs anyway. (more…)

Irish Oatmeal with Hot Buttered Cinnamon Apples {Giveaway}

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Have you ever had Irish oatmeal? Or maybe you know it by a different name, such as pinhead oats or steel-cut oats?

If you’re not familiar, steel-cut oats are oats from which the inedible outer husk has been removed. The oat groats (the inner part of the oat kernels) are cleaned, and then chopped into three or four small pieces as they’re passed through steel cutters. Whatever you call it, this dish is a delicious and very healthy whole grain. (more…)
