Maple Walnut Cheesecake Truffles {Dairy-Free; Gluten-Free; Naturally-Sweetened}

Maple Walnut Cheesecake Truffles {Dairy-Free; Gluten-Free; Naturally-Sweetened}

With that evil temptation of a holiday coming at us this Friday, I had to take preemptive measures.

Otherwise, I knew I’d be doomed. (more…)

Paleo Maple-Cinnamon Granola {Grain-Free; Gluten-Free; Nut-Free; Naturally-Sweetened}

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

So, granola. I won’t even try to sell you on it because I know you’re probably already a fan. And if you are, you will probably be interested in my Pumpkin Spice Granola, which is one of my all-time favs.

And if you’re not, I’d say avert your eyes or X out of this window…but I’m not going to say that because this granola is so unlike a traditional granola that you might just like it. (more…)

Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

DSC_7277(small)There’s something about this meal (or maybe it’s my photos of this meal) that screams ‘70’s to me. (Which is a little weird since I wasn’t even born yet in the ‘70’s, but I think I’m remembering episodes of The Brady Brunch, which I used to watch like it was my job when I was growing up…I was convinced I was Jan and my younger sister was a combo of both Marcia and Cindy, lol.)

Mini Maple-Cinnamon-Walnut Turnover Cookies

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

This year I wanted to come up with a healthier holiday cookie that doesn’t necessarily taste healthy. Something that I could serve to my family for dessert along with tea and coffee at one of my parents’ family dinners and have people be satisfied with dessert – not left wanting something else.

I’ve been in the mood for Ma’amoul, which are Middle Eastern filled cookies. Perhaps the most common filling for these cookies is dates, but my mother-in-law also makes versions with walnuts and pistachios. For the walnut, she makes two different flavors: 1) cinnamon and 2) rose and orange blossom water-scented. The cinnamon-walnut are my favorite (even rivaling the date-filled for me). (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…)

Autumnal Afternoon Tea

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

A couple weeks ago I hosted a cozy afternoon tea with an autumnal flair. It was so much fun and there was talk of making it seasonal affair, which I think is a wonderful idea! I’m going to be sharing the recipes I made throughout the next month or so, but for now I’m going to let the photos do the talking.

Maple Pecan Shortbread

Monday, January 30th, 2012

These little lovelies are another recipe that was inspired by Tim Hortons.  They sell boxes of maple shortbread with some kind of nut (I can’t remember if it’s walnut or pecan); the cookies are good, but the idea has the potential to be great, which is why I wanted to try my hand at a homemade version.

Maple-Walnut Buckwheat Scones with Honeyed Sage Butter

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Can I let you in on a little secret?  I’m not really sure how I feel about buckwheat.  (Probably not the best way to sell you on these scones, but I have to keep it real, right?)  This was the first time I baked with it, and actually, the first time I’ve knowingly had it (other than in soba noodles, which I do enjoy).  Buckwheat is so healthy, I wanted to like it, really I did.  But it’s just so…I don’t know…grassy, maybe?

Truth be told, cardboard-y is probably a better word. (more…)

Pumpkin-Maple Breakfast Pudding

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Holiday mornings are always special in my family, and every year we try to come up with new festive dishes to serve at brunch.  This pudding (which is really a porridge…but pudding sounds a little more indulgent, don’t you think?  And what are holidays for, if not indulgence ;) ) is the perfect thing to wake up to on a snowy holiday morning; it features pumpkin and maple, and is thickened with semolina.

Christmas Dinner for Two: Vanilla-Maple Glazed Cornish Hens, Spiced Yams, and Braised Red Cabbage with Cherries

Friday, December 10th, 2010

I absolutely love everything about this time of year…the festivities, the family time, the food.  I’ve noticed that when it comes to holiday feasts, it doesn’t matter whether you’re making a banquet for a group of twenty friends or an intimate meal to enjoy with your love; the truly magical thing is getting to share a beautiful meal with someone special.  A dear friend of mine recently asked me to put together a Christmas dinner for two; I happily agreed (developing recipes and menus is pretty much my all-time favorite thing to do!) and Cornish hen immediately came to mind.  Specifically, I thought of Cornish hen with a maple glaze, since I think it’s a fantastic combination. (more…)
