Creamy Almond Brown Rice Pudding

It’s been a while since I talked about our pudding obsession.

Our obsession hasn’t gone anywhere, but I don’t want to bombard and overwhelm you with pudding, of all things. That would just be weird. (more…)

Skinny Raspberry-Chocolate Cheesecake Milkshakes

How about a berry cheesecake milkshake for breakfast?, I enticed Mike one Saturday morning.

Cheesecake-flavored anything is his favorite; combine it with berries and he’s in heaven. Needless to say, he was pretty excited about breakfast that day.

That is, until he saw me add cottage cheese to the blender in a moment of inspiration. (more…)

“His” and “Hers” Fresh Corn Quesadillas with Roasted Garlic and Chive Crema

When Mike and I can’t agree on dinner, I like to cook “his” and “hers” style.

Sometimes it’s completely different meals, like spaghetti with homemade beef ragu for him and fish or chicken with a side of veggies (preferably roasted) for me. But if I’m lucky, it’s a similar meal that’s easily customizable for both of our tastes, like salad with different toppings or sandwiches with different fillings…or quesadillas! (more…)

Pineapple Cardamom Coffee Cake with Coconut Crumb Topping

For years I was the girl who only ordered New York-style coffee cake at coffee shops.

Once I saw that mile-high topping on display, I wouldn’t even waste a passing glance at anything else. (more…)

Savory Spiced Sour Cream Zucchini Muffins

Is your zucchini crop starting to come in yet?

Because zucchini is so wonderfully predictable, we all know that if you’re a gardener, soon enough you’ll have it coming out your ears. You’ll be dropping of bags to friends, family, and neighbors. (more…)

Vanilla Pineapple Popsicles

A while ago when my friend brought me back wood apples from Sri Lanka, she also brought me another sweet treat: pineapple!

If you’ve never had Sri Lankan pineapple, it is surprisingly quite different from Hawaiian pineapple. Fresh, ripe Sri Lankan pineapple is sweeter and has a deeper pineapple flavor than Hawaiian pineapple. Sri Lankan pineapple still has the pleasant sweet/sour taste that Hawaiian pineapple has, but with less of a tart tang and more of a sweet, natural concentrated pineapple flavor. (more…)

Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.

But it got me thinking that I need to come up with a good recipe for homemade chocolate muffins… (more…)

We all know not to judge a book by its cover.

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

I remember the first time I bit into fresh falafel.

Mike and I were in Amman, Jordan on our honeymoon, out and about just strolling along arm-in-arm, the way you’d expect people on their honeymoon to do. We passed a guy frying up falafel on a street corner; simultaneously, Mike’s stomach growled and I inhaled deeply, asking what that amazing smell was.

You know we had to stop and get some. (more…)
