Smoky Braised Sausage and White Beans in Savory Peanut Sauce

Until about a week ago, I thought we weren’t going to see much cold weather here.

And then last week hit with the full force of winter; high temps in the teens and about six inches of snow. (After our three previous “snowstorms” that produced less than an inch of accumulated snow each, I was about ready to throw a party to celebrate our snow! Or at least head outside and play in it.)

Hearty Garlic and Herb Mushroom Stew

Even though I don’t usually share their sentiments, I can at least understand how some veggies fall into the “eww” category for some people… (more…)

Arugala Breakfast Salad with Stovetop Maple Nut Brittle and Blueberry Lemon Dressing

I’m a big fan of breakfast for any meal of the day, but I’m weird about my eggs in the morning. I will eat any kind of egg except one with a runny yolk for breakfast, but as far as runny yolks go, all bets are off for lunch or dinner. So weird.

(Any other quirky breakfast eaters out there?) (more…)

Oatmeal Golden Raisin Muffins with Cream Cheese Glaze {Vegan}

I make a ridiculous amount of muffins.

They’re the perfect thing when you want to use up a little bit of coconut milk or the last 1/4 cup of a few different kinds of nuts or dried fruit, or if you have an apple or banana that isn’t good for much else except baking. (more…)

Savory Camembert Turnovers with Honey-Roasted Turkey and Lingonberry Jam

Savory Camembert Turnovers with Honey-Roasted Turkey and Lingonberry Jam

There are a multitude of Korean cafés/bakeries where we live in Alexandria. In fact, it seems that nearly every non-chain coffee shop in the area is either straight-up Korean or Korean with a French twist.

At first, it took some getting used to. I mean, the coffee is good, really good, actually. And there’s the perk of having the option of bubble tea (which my niece can’t get enough of). The baked goods and pastries are decent too, but definitely interesting and somewhat surprising if you’re not used to them. (more…)

Brussels Sprout and Bacon Hash with Fried Egg

I share a lot of my meals on Instagram (I think it’s part of the whole you know you’re a food blogger when…), but so many never make it to the blog. (more…)

Small-Batch Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches with Raspberry Buttercream

Dessert isn’t an everyday thing in my house, but when I make it, I think it should be special. Valentine’s dessert in particular, because for some reason it just goes hand-in-hand with the whole idea of romance. (more…)

30-Minute Chocolate-Espresso Beef and Black Bean Chili

Do you go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day or stay at home?

(I usually make Mike and I a romantic meal, like our favorite Spiced Sirloin Roast for Two, but this year I’m on strike…so either he’ll end up cooking or we’ll go out. Because sometimes a girl just needs to go on strike for a night, right, ladies?) (more…)

Jicama, Apple, and Pomegranate Salad with Raspberry-Dijon Vinaigrette

The other day we ordered sandwiches from a cute little local café.

It bears mentioning that they served my turkey wrap with extra onion without me even having to ask…and it’s not like they knew me (as the onion-loving weirdo I am) because it was my first time there! I felt like I won the onion lotto or something. (It’s the little things, lol.) (more…)
