Thai Pineapple Fried Cauliflower “Rice” with Chicken

There’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal in the middle of the day when you’re at work.

(It beats the heck out of a quickly thrown-together sandwich or fast food from the drive-thru any day!) (more…)

10-Minute Warm Maple-Dijon Brussels Sprout Salad with Pecans

You know what I think is really weird?

How something I eat literally all.the.time can rarely make an appearance on the blog. (more…)

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…)

Butterscotch + Brown Butter Shortbread #25recipestoXmas

Friday, December 7th, 2012

I’ve noticed something when it comes to converting picky eaters – happy accidents are your best friend. For example, get someone hungry enough and they’ll try anything, despite protests of I don’t think I’ll like it! One such serendipitous encounter this autumn led my hubby to fall in love with butterscotch shortbread, and I knew I had to come up with a homemade version. Head over to Roxana’s Home Baking to read my guest post for the full recipe for my Butterscotch + Brown Butter Shortbread, and be sure to take a look around while you’re there. Roxana is one of the best bakers I know, and it’s the perfect time of year to look for new delicious baked goods!

Thank you so much for inviting me to participate in your 25 Recipes to Christmas event, Roxana! (more…)

Jam-Filled Shortbread Cookies

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

So, Halloween is tomorrow…and I have no idea where October went. (Forget October, where did summer go?!)

I’ve been starting to think about holiday cookies; every year I go on a hunt for a new recipe or two to add to the collection of classics that I always make. Like the Snickercrinkles I made last year, this batch is also a hybrid: shortbread + jam thumbprints. And it really is a fantastic pairing. (more…)

Bavarian Cream + Cherry Sauce

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

A while ago my friend Victoria (from Mission: Food) asked me to write a guest post for her at the end of September/beginning of October with a recipe that pertains to travel. I’ve known Victoria for at least a couple years now and I love her blog so of course I said yes; my mind immediately went to German food because of Oktoberfest.

Food Photography & Setting the Mood with Color

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Morning in the Middle East (Apricot Jam):  Check out my guest post on The Ardent Epicure to see how I used color in this image (as well as several others) to tell a story. 

I’m so excited to share this post with you all!  If you’re into food photography or just photography in general, head over to my friend Alisha’s blog (The Ardent Epicure) to check out my guest post, where I talk about using color in your photographs to help convey the story or mood you want to depict.  I had so much fun with this post…thank you so much for inviting me, Alisha!
