I keep a huge jar of tahini in my fridge at all times. (Because a normal-sized jar would just not due, lol.) (more…)

I have a weird method of cooking for Mike and I.
One thing I adore about him is how even though he is a crazy-picky eater, if it’s a dish he likes, he doesn’t mind eating it for leftovers…for a week straight. Yup, I’m a lucky girl. (more…)
When I was younger, I hated any and all lemon-flavored desserts with a passion. Lemon bars, lemon meltaway cookies, and even lemon meringue pie were all on my list.
(But oddly enough, I was a big fan of super sour lemon-flavored WarHeads candy – does anyone else remember those? Incidentally, I consider this proof positive that there is no rhyme or reason to kids’ tastes.) (more…)
Sometimes spring is obvious (like when temps go from 35 degrees to 55 degrees overnight and melt three feet of snow), and sometimes it isn’t quite so obvious (like when temps raise just a degree or two over the span of an entire month).
And then there are times when spring needs a little coaxing…like when it snows two feet in the span of two days at the end of March/beginning of April.
Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)
Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.
Such a bummer. (more…)
I think I’ve probably mentioned before that although I try with all my might not to be an impulse shopper, I’m a huge sucker for cutsie foods. (more…)
When I was developing this recipe, I almost didn’t expect to like these scones. (more…)
For me, this fall has been all about cranberries.
And I’m completely shocked to say that even my seasonal favs like apple and pumpkin have taken the backseat to cranberry this fall. (How did that happen?!)
I think I’m finally giving cranberry the spotlight it deserves. (And shame on me for not doing it sooner! But I did share some pretty fabulous Cranberry-Flax Cookies and some lovely Dark Chocolate-Coated Cranberry Cake Bites.)
How does your family do Thanksgiving dinner?
Pot luck-style with everyone bringing a dish to pass? Or maybe the person hosting makes everything and someone else hosts the next holiday?
In my family, dinner is always at my mom’s house, and she and I make everything together (except for the turkey, which my mom brines and my dad roasts).
We like to have an assortment of sides to please everyone because everyone has a different favorite. And it seems like there is always at least one person who is on a new diet or who found out that they are intolerant to something, and we also like to have a dish that fits their way of eating.
Enter this pretty little number. (more…)
I can’t imagine a holiday dinner without turkey and all the trimmings. Not just for Thanksgiving; we don’t eat pork (so ham is out of the question), and Christmas calls for a big turkey dinner as well. We don’t mind.
Actually, we love it so much, we usually make one other full turkey dinner in late winter/early spring just for the heck of it. Creatures of habit, we are.
Similarly, Thanksgiving brunch always means a pumpkin treat will be on the menu. That is just how it goes, and it’s something everyone looks forward to. (more…)
