French Onion Mini Muffins

Friday, December 28th, 2012

DSC_2367(small)One of the simplest recipes in the world is also one of my favorites. It’s easy to make (if you’re a little patient – and I only mean about 20 minutes of patient, not all-day patient!), and only takes three ingredients.

And the three ingredients it requires are cheap, common items that I would be willing to guess are staples in your kitchen.

The recipe isn’t a secret, you probably make (or at least eat) it frequently… (more…)

Gingersnap + White Chocolate Truffles {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats}

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

If you had to choose only one flavor that embodies fall, what would it be?

For me, it’s ginger, without a doubt.

(I’m pretty sure this is because of these cookies, which I vividly remember my mom frequently making in autumns gone by.) Even when I don’t have homemade Molasses Crinkles on hand, I can usually find a box of store-bought gingersnaps in my cupboard (which are surprisingly delicious!). (more…)

Dark Chocolate-Coated Cranberry Cake Bites {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats}

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

I have a stock-pile of recipes building up. I’m not quite sure how that happened since I’ve been posting much more than normal lately, but I’m definitely not going to complain! However, I’ve noticed quite a few treat recipes that are fall-ish and/or perfect for festive holiday gatherings, and I wanted to get them all posted before this holiday season has come and gone.

Thai-Inspired Pumpkin Soup

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

At the beginning of fall I can’t wait for all things pumpkin. Then there inevitably comes a point when Ooh, pumpkin soup! turns into Oh…pumpkin soup. I’m not quite at that point yet (I’m a die-hard fan…still can’t get enough Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Syrup!), but if you are, this soup is for you. (Really…I wouldn’t steer you wrong.)

It’s less like pumpkin soup and more like peanut-y satay sauce.

And I don’t know about you, but the sauce is my favorite part of satay. (more…)

Butternut-Maple Butter and Spiced Maple Scones

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

A couple weeks ago I was at a farmers’ market and I couldn’t help but stock up on winter squash. (Don’t blame me though…who could turn down a beautiful sugar pumpkin for $1?!) I also got a gorgeous, nearly four-pound butternut squash for under $2. And maybe the best part (even though it isn’t squash), was a huge (and I do mean huge…it was also almost four pounds!) rutabaga that I picked up for $1!

When you buy more than you can use, you’re basically at the point where a bargain is no longer a bargain. Luckily, this was not the case since all the things I bought are easy to process and preserve for later. (Even the rutabaga! I peeled it up, cubed it, flash froze it, and then packed it in freezer-safe containers for later use. But that’s a chat for later, right now we’re talking about that gorgeous butternut.)

Speaking of butternut, if you like pumpkin butter, oh boy do I have a treat for you today. (more…)
