We all know not to judge a book by its cover.
I think that same adage should wholeheartedly be applied to food. (more…)

Some things drive you completely wild with desire as they cook.
Any recipe that starts out with sautéed onion and garlic.
Chocolate chip cookies.
And I can say with confidence that this recipe should be added to the list. (more…)
Would you believe I absolutely hated rice as a kid?
I attribute this to the fact that my mom served what she called “Mushroom and Wine Rice” to my sister and I the first time we remember ever having rice. Although I think it sounds delicious now, this is not something your average five-year-old will generally devour; needless to say, I grew up thinking I hated rice. (more…)
After eating these granola bars, not only will you never want to buy store-bought granola bars ever again, but you will also never want to make another recipe for chewy granola bars again. I know that’s a mighty tall claim, but I’m standing by it. These bars are that good. (more…)
The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy.
In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious.
I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream. (more…)
So, who in the food world (home cooks included) doesn’t miss Gourmet, right? Luckily we still have their old magazines and books to thumb through to reminisce and find inspiration. This recipe hails all the way from 1998 and is a real winner in a timeless way. If you like Indian food and/or curry, this dish is sure to be a hit. And I was happy that unlike many curries, this one doesn’t use curry powder at all – just a lovely combination of ingredients providing sweet, heat, and spice for a perfect balance. Head over to my guest post on Culinary Covers for the full recipe!
Today marks mine and Mike’s 8th wedding anniversary, which seems completely crazy to me. (Crazy that eight years have passed, not that we’ve stuck together that long. Although, maybe it is a little crazy since we were so young when we got married…who says kids can’t make good choices? Lol.) Anyway, people have been congratulating us all over the place for passing the “seven year itch”, so I’ll take our 8th anniversary as a really good omen.
I don’t like PDAs (which includes PDAs on the blog!) so not to worry, I won’t get all mushy here. But I will tell you a little something about our honeymoon… (more…)
I know you’re going to see this caramel and think I’m a liar.
You’ll think it was made with naughty things heavy cream, white sugar, and bricks of butter. (more…)
Oh boy is this cake good – a little too good to just have chilling in my fridge on a random weekday. Despite how delicious it is, this cake is actually quite unsightly; it doesn’t rise much and the top is craggy. But as far as looks go, not to worry because all will be well; a craggy top is nothing a little glaze can’t fix. (more…)
