My Favorite Easter Eats

This will be the first Easter in a whole lot of Easters that I won’t be celebrating (and eating and egg-hunting) with my family.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s better to just let it be what it is. I had every intention of making you a fancy Easter brunch cake… the kind with lemon and lavender and swirly frosting… but as I stood in my kitchen (with exactly zero lemons), and evaluated my desire to go to the store (to buy hella lemons), I thought… can’t it just be what it is?

Triple Berry Dutch Baby

It’s all well and good until someone has to stand in front of the stove and flip the pancakes. It’s a thankless job and I wouldn’t wish pancake flipping onto anyone’s relaxed weekend.

Milky Salted Caramel

There’s this really cool thing that happens when you get to do what you love for a living.  Well… it’s that you do what you love.

Roasted Broccoli and Cheddar Baked Potatoes

I needed someone to talk me into making baked potatoes.  Silly, really.  Why would I need someone to hold my hand through placing a raw vegetable in the oven and waiting for it to be soft?

Spring Things!

 I feel like I’m grasping tight to the things around me these days.  I’m probably the first to shrug off the change of season, the change of moving cities, and the change of traveling a ton as no big deal….

Tiny Strawberry Cream Scones

Remember yesterday’s April Fools’ Day post?  The one where I mocked marble and farm tables and food blogging in general?

How To Be The Best Food Blogger Of All

Listen guys… I’ve been in this blogging game for a long long time.  Six years?  I basically know everything there is to know.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting

There’s a very specific sort of kitchen math that runs through my brain every time I stare into my refrigerator and try to figure out what to make.

Roasted Potato Galette with cheddar and chives

Most people have fight or flight reactions when it comes to stressful, life or death situations.  You know… you see a bear and your instincts quickly decide if you’re going to run screaming, or put throw up your fists like a prize-fighter.

Banana, Leche y Cafe con Chocolate

It’s so hard to keep that vacation feeling.  That feeling that let’s me linger in bed to read a book instead of jumping up to chase the alarm and caffeine.

12 Ways To Tart Up Spring

I’ve been compiling lists of what I want to come out of my new kitchen this Spring and Summer. I’m excited!

A Dedication

Hello friends!  I’ve been in Costa Rica this week getting a sunburn on my scalp, eating ceviche like it’s going out of style, learning how to surf, and mostly thinking thoughts about what I’m going to cook for you this Spring and into our future.

Pepperoni Pizza Rolls and The Baking A Difference E-Cookbook

We all have our favorite bites.  My favorite bite of a brownie is the slightly burnt corner edge.  My favorite sips of coffee are the first and the last.

Sesame Kale Salad with Roasted Almonds

I’m in need of some greens.  The gnarly kind.  The kind that bite back. Clearly kale is the answer.   It’s clean and crunchy and that’s where we’re starting for today.

Pimm’s Cup Cocktail

Spring is teasing us. It feels like the sun is juuuust about ready to creep out and stay.  Well… it feels that way up until the time the rain pours down.

Vanilla Honey

I moved from Los Angeles to Burlington, Vermont when I was eighteen years old.  I decided, with all of my eighteen years of wisdom, that I didn’t want to rush off to college, and that instead… I would rush off to scoop ice cream for Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream in Vermont.

Brown Butter Banana Bread

I’ve unpacked the moving boxes of the essentials:  sock slippers, gin, loaf pan, spatula, and mixing bowl.

Notes From The Road

Thank you for bearing with me last week as I trekked from Los Angeles to New Orleans in a little Corolla with a very large orange cat.
