Dark Chocolate Olive Oil Cake with Blueberries and Ginger 1

We all have a favorite oil, whether it is coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, or something else. Like any other staple, our favorite oil is always in our pantry, and it’s often what we reach for when we want to make everything from fried eggs to muffins to sautéed vegetables. For a lot of us, olive oil reigns supreme because if it’s flavor, cooking versatility, and health benefits.

Easy Cherry Chocolate Yogurt Bowl

Easy Cherry Chocolate Yogurt Bowl 1

Indulge in an Easy Cherry Chocolate Yogurt Bowl for dessert tonight. When I write a blog post, I pretend that no one I know is reading because sharing snippets of my life is just easier that way. I’m usually very reserved until I get to know someone, but oddly, I find it less intimidating to write for strangers than for people who know me....

Za’atar and Caramelized Onion Zucchini Galette with Goat Cheese

Za’atar and Caramelized Onion Zucchini Galette with Goat Cheese Recipe

This pretty little Za’atar and Caramelized Onion Zucchini Galette with Goat Cheese is a great way to class up zucchini. Even when it’s rustic (read: food blogger slang for a fine mess), anything with pie crust (called pâte brisée) just feels classy. And humble as it is, zucchini deserves a chance in the limelight....

Piña Colada Banana Bread

Pina Colada Banana Bread 1

Banana bread-lovers, this Piña Colada Banana Bread is a must-try if you enjoy the tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut! I’m weird in that I don’t like bananas much. I buy them for two reasons: 1) they’re one of my hubby’s favorite fruits (not surprising, since we have pretty much opposite tastes in food), and 2) to let them ripen to near-rotting (yup, I love them super sweet) and either freeze them to use in smoothies or make banana bread. See? I’m weird....

Stovetop White Cheese Macaroni and Cheese with Broccoli

Stovetop White Cheese Macaroni and Cheese with Broccoli 1

This creamy Stovetop White Cheese Macaroni and Cheese with Broccoli comes together quick for the perfect kid-friendly meal. Looking through my site, I noticed that I don’t have a lot of kid-oriented recipes. (Mostly because Mike and I don’t have kids (yet) and the only kid in my life (my niece) has a more grown-up palate than most grown-ups I know. From the age of five she insisted on ordering for herself at restaurants, and for a good long stint her meal of choice was broiled fish with steamed vegetables…a girl after my own heart.)...

Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream

Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream 1

This Layered Corn, Avocado, and Tomato Salad with Herbed Sour Cream features the best of summer produce and is sure to be a hit at your summer picnic or potluck. At the beginning of summer, one of Mike’s favorite coworkers moved to Hawaii. (It was a sad day when we said goodbye to her, not only because she was funny and sweet and smart, but also because she makes the best brownies I’ve ever put into my mouth. She’s like some kind of evil brownie magician because I swear her recipe is irreplicable despite my 25 pathetic attempts.)...

Malted Chocolate Brownies

Malted Chocolate Brownies 1

These rich Malted Chocolate Brownies feature malted milk powder in the batter and chocolate-covered malt balls on top for a double dose of malt flavor. When we were kids, my mom used to tell my sister and I that I was born older. And I was secretly like duh, Mom, that’s obvious…I’m the older sister. But as an adult, I get what she meant: I’m an old soul....

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese

Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese 1

Bright Mediterranean flavors make this Grilled Zucchini with Quick Tomato-Olive Sauce and Feta Cheese a perfect summer side dish. Mike and I decided years ago that we just aren’t campers. Actually, it was after our first camping trip that we sort-of had an inkling that it just wasn’t our cup of tea, but after our second trip we outright swore off camping altogether. (It’s not the bugs, or the snakes, or even the uncomfortable bedding that gets me. What kills it for me is the fact that I can never just get clean, lol. Dirty feet and sticky fingers are the stuff my nightmares are […]...
