Roasted Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Basil & Pine Nuts {Cuisine Nicoise Cookbook Giveaway}

Friday, August 9th, 2013

There are certain recipes you see that you expect to have certain ingredients just from reading the title.

Like macaroni and cheese. I always expect macaroni, and I always expect cheese…but that’s not necessarily true. Take cauliflower “macaroni” and vegan “cheese”; true it doesn’t taste exactly like the original, but still, it’s macaroni and cheese-ish and delicious anyway.

Or fudge. I hear the word fudge and my mind goes to chocolate. But flavors like cappuccino, cinnamon bun, and peanut butter show that isn’t the case. Chocolate obviously doesn’t have to be included in a fudge-like confection for it to be tasty.

And then there’s quiche. When I think of quiche, I inevitably think of buttery pastry and loads of cheese…a rich dish, made even richer by a splash or two of cream. This quiche took away my preconceived ideas about what quiche is. (more…)

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Pina Colada Smoothie1

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…)

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

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}

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}

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…)

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…)

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…)

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…)
