    Heading into the holiday weekend, I thought I'd share this variation of my favorite summer berry crisp. I made it recently to finish a dinner celebrating my good friend Chanda's birthday. Blackberries, strawberries, and cherries cook into a thick, jammy, wine-spiked fruit sludge beneath a crispy, oat-flecked top. It's the good stuff, and silly simple. If you're heading out to do some camping, I bet you could do a brilliant campfire version in a cast iron Dutch oven. There's a version of it in my last book, but I doubled-down on the topping for this one. No one ever complains about too much of…

    The Pioneer Woman Cooks, Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl  by Ree Drummond,  William Morrow 2009.  Do you remember when this book came out? Everyone was wild for it! It was all over the internet and getting rave reviews.  At that time our internet was very poor and dropped out if you just looked at it, so I found it hard to load the posts from Ree’s website.  Still, I bought the book, flicked through it, and that was that.  A few years later, after seeing Ree on her foodnetwork show I decided to start cooking some of her recipes…. And I’ve never…

    It was such an early spring and summer, and the weather has been so warm, that my basil is doing wonderfully well. I had to use some of it, so I thought I'd share the two easy recipes, a spread and a salad dressing, that I came up with-- both use a whole cup of fresh basil leaves, packed down.PS: We had the basil dressing on our whole-meal lunch salad toda. The salad was comprised of home-grown freshly-picked lettuce with snap peas, oven-broiled Crispy Tofu (or B of T- recipe at the end of this post but this time I crisped it under the broiler instead of sautéing in a skillet);…

    There was a man behind me at the grocery store the other day. I was in the bulk section surrounded by large jars of dried herbs, tea blends, spices, and sea vegetables. The man inquired about a rose & green tea blend, and the young woman overseeing the teas replied that she thought they used to carry a black tea & rose blend, but not green tea & rose. I drink a good amount of green tea, and thought the green tea with rose combination sounded particularly nice. I imagined it iced, and made a pitcher as soon as I got home using green tea I had from my trip to Tokyo, along with rose petals I had…

    I thought I'd jot off a quick post for those of you who like to see what I pack to eat when I travel. I have one more day in Hong Kong before flying back to San Francisco, and I'll be sad to leave. This trip has been far too quick - Hong Kong is an amazing city, and the people couldn't be more kind, friendly, or generous. Lots of pictures and a bit of video to come. In the meantime, I made these little dumplings for the flight. They're protein-packed pureed red lentils, flared out with deeply roasted cherry tomatoes, and a simple smoked paprika and garlic oil.

    I wrote a post a while back about writing a cookbook proposal. It explained how I typically approach the first stages of a cookbook project. I thought I'd follow that up with a post primarily (but not entirely) focused on some of the details that have taken place in the time since - between signing a contract and sending the book to the printer. I should mention, it has been incredible hearing from so many of you - each at a different stage in your own projects. Whether it's my own book, or a book someone else is working on, I find the process fascinating. The more you talk to different…

I know one of them can’t go past Tiramisu on a dessert menu, so I had to try this raspberry tiramisu to make sure it was good!It was gorgeous, the raspberries add a nice fruity edge to the Tiramisu.  Now, I have a slight confession to make, I don’t really like mascarpone in sweet things, so I used light cream cheese, and it worked out just fine.   At the time of…

    My late mother-in-law, Ruth Stuhr Clark, was very fond of Hot German Potato Salad,which I had never heard of before I married her son, my late husband Wayne Clark. It just wasn't part of my mother's culinary repertoire. Ruth was half Irish and half German and from a very large family, so I'm sure she grew up with this tasty and economical dish, which utilized leftover cooked potatoes, with little bits of ham or bacon-- a good meal-stretcher!Southern German Potato Salad ("Kartoffelsalat") is one of a number of warm (or room temperature) potato salads from various European, Balkan, Middle…

He loved it-- success!I hope you'll enjoy this pilaf as much as we did.Printable CopyBRYANNA'S GREEN AND GOLD QUINOA-VEGETABLE…

We eat (more like gorge on) the fresh fruit, make pies and cobblers, and freeze, dry, and can whatever’s left. Apricots and cherries come into season about this time, early summer, which is a great excuse to pair them in a rustic tart such as this one. Continue reading "Apricot Cherry Galette" »

It is best cooked medium rare and thinly sliced at an angle across the grain of the meat. Prepared this way, marinated, cooked quickly at high heat, thinly sliced, flank steak practically melts in your mouth. This recipe calls for grilling the steak, but if you don’t have a grill, you can prepare the steak on a large cast iron frying pan as well. Continue reading "Grilled Marinated Flank Steak" »

Well, try adding some fresh kale leaves to your caesar next time! You don’t have to replace all the romaine with kale. In fact, an equal amount of each is just right in our opinion. You get the green goodness that is kale along with the cool crispness of the romaine, the best of both worlds. Continue reading "Kale Caesar Salad with Creamy Parmesan Dressing" »

  • Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

    Elise
    27 Jun 2015 | 8:20 pm
    Flank steak is a lean, somewhat tough but flavorful cut of beef that benefits from the tenderizing effects of a marinade. It is best cooked medium rare and thinly sliced at an angle across the grain of the meat. Prepared this way, marinated, cooked quickly at high heat, thinly sliced, flank steak practically melts in your mouth. This recipe calls for grilling the steak, but if you don’t have a grill, you can prepare the steak on a large cast iron frying pan as well. Continue reading "Grilled Marinated Flank Steak" »

  • Quick and Easy Egg Drop Soup

    13 May 2015 | 5:37 am
    This Chinese egg drop soup from my friend and guest contributor Garrett McCord couldn’t be easier! It takes no more than 20 minutes to make start to finish, and is perfect for a quick, healthy meal. ~Elise In college one of the dishes I relied on was my own version of egg drop soup. It was simple, tasty, comforting and (most importantly) budget friendly. As I started to make it more and more I began to notice that friends started to drop by for dinner with increasing frequency. This was fine as all I had to do was add a bit more chicken stock and soy sauce and toss in another beaten…

  • 4th of July Special: Red, White & Blueberry Grilled Chicken!

    2 Jul 2015 | 7:16 am
    These colors don’t run, but they do stain, so I recommend eating this delicious, red, white and blueberry chicken outdoors, preferably at some type of 4th of July barbecue. While the Independence Day wordplay was very much intentional, this grilled chicken is no gimmick. Smoky, spicy meats have been paired with sweet-and-sour, fruit-based sauces since we’ve had cooks, so that this combo works beautifully is no big surprise. And yes, other juicy fruit like peaches, or other berries will work nicely. Like I said in the video, I made my spice rub extra hot, so I could really take advantage…
  • Sweet Potato Buns – Great for Burgers, and Learning How to Bake Without Fear

    Not only does adding sweet potatoes to a burger bun make it more nutritious, delicious, and significantly more beautiful, but it also presents the perfect opportunity to get pass your flour amount phobia, and finally be able to make dough by feel. Every once in a while, I’ll get an email from someone whose dough was way too wet, or dry, and I always think the same thing; why would you stop? Some actually tell me they had to throw out the whole batch, which is insane. Your dough’s too wet? Add some flour. Too dry? Add some water. No matter how exact a recipe is written, you simply can’t…
  • Teriyaki Burgers and a Sweet Potato Bun Tease

    26 Jun 2015 | 8:09 am
    Your classic teriyaki burger is usually nothing more than a plain patty, which has been glazed in teriyaki sauce; and by “teriyaki sauce,” I mean a thick, one-dimensional syrup made from sugar, soy, and MSG. If you’re enjoying your third pint at a sports bar, these work out just fine, but good luck adapting them for your next cookout. Here we’re using a different, drier approach, and adding the key teriyaki flavorings to the ground meat. This gives us a burger or slider with the taste of teriyaki, without having to deal with a sauce. This recipe should work no matter the cooking…
  • Butter Puff Biscuit Dough – Faster, Easier, and Not Great for Shortcake

    23 Jun 2015 | 11:56 am
    As promised, this is the puff pastry-like dough I used in the apple roses video, and while not exactly “ quick and easy,” this was definitely quicker and easier. Just don’t try and make strawberry shortcake with this stuff. I wanted to use this dough as the centerpiece of our strawberry shortcake video, but unfortunately the cold pastry was way too hard to cut with a spoon, and so I ended up using a much more traditional, and user-friendly biscuit.   That aside, as a puff pastry substitute, I think this was a huge success. Hopefully, you saw this in action in the apple roses…

    About halfway through this video production for how to make a Michelada, I realized I was getting paid to drink beer, which made the experience that much more enjoyable, and that’s saying a lot. This spicy, savory, tangy, amazingly refreshing beer-based cocktail is considered one of the best hot-weather, adult beverages ever. I’ve heard it described as “Bloody Mary meets Mimosa,” which makes me never want to go to brunch again, but it’s also kind of accurate. While that may not sound like something you would enjoy, most people do, and very much so. And the hotter it is, the more…

No, it is not a traditional dish made the traditional way, but it takes less than an hour from start to finish, which is the guide I use for all but the most important meals of the year.I was privileged in 1995 to attend a training workshop in a retired dietician's home. She was teaching a group of young wives how to make budget wise meals for their families. One of the most important things I took from her lessons was that the same ingredients can be used in different ways to make so many different dishes. For instance, take the…

She had several recipes that were enjoyed by her family, but the Ranch Style Chicken Casserole recipe was a favorite of everyone.I have no idea where the recipe came from originally, or if she came up with it herself.  My family loves it, and I was happy she shared it with me. We lost Mamaw in April 2008. This recipe brings her back to our minds when we serve it.For this casserole, Mamaw would cook a full chicken and bone it. I…

So last Sunday, we were looking for someplace to go for dinner when we remembered the commercial that had us longing for crispy fries. We drove over to Applebee’s and were surprised when we walked in – the entire place had been remodeled.  It still has the same areas, but there were lovely banquettes in the bar area as well as the hightops that I love.  We got a table and started to look over the completely redesigned menu and I have to say, we were overwhelmed…

I bought a few packets of red Sorghum (jowar) and sweet smelling pure cane sugar or as they call it sucanat (which stands for sugar cane natural). The red Sorghum has harder skin and more nutty taste than the white grain and takes a little longer to cook. These nutty grains combine beautifully with both savory and sweet recipes. The cooked Sorghum grain comes handy to make a quick and filling snack (Patties, Ghoogri, kathi rolls),…

    Lauren Keating
    30 Jun 2015 | 1:30 am
    This dreamy blueberry plum sorbet hits all the right notes: sweet, sour, floral, and bitter. It’s made with fresh summer fruit and sweetened with half sugar and half honey for the best flavor and texture. When I saw that this month the Progressive Eats group was skipping dinner and heading straight for dessert with an ice cream social, it took me about 3 seconds to decide what to make: I’ve been dreaming about blueberry plum sorbet for ages. (Keep reading for our full menu!) I always add a splash of alcohol to my ice creams and sorbets, since it keeps them from getting to icy in…
  • Spiralized Seame Carrot Salad

    Lauren Keating
    24 Jun 2015 | 1:30 am
    Carrots stand in for seaweed in this refreshing, Asian-inspired salad. Serve it with hoisin glazed chicken kebabs or pack it in a basket with my favorite ham + asparagus picnic sandwiches. Last summer, Shawn and I stopped by the co-op for a picnic dinner and I impulsively grabbed a container of sesame carrot salad. I can’t remember what else I ate that night, but the carrot salad is permanently seared into my memory – it was so good! Of course I had to recreate it at home. This easy recipe has a lot of the same flavors as seaweed salad (one of my favorites!), with carrots standing…
  • Raspberry and Coconut Cake with Greek Yogurt

    Lauren Keating
    19 Jun 2015 | 1:30 am
    This time of year, it seems like there’s always something to celebrate. Memorial Day, Father’s Day, birthdays – even just casual summer nights spent grilling on the deck can suddenly take on a celebratory feel. And what celebration is complete without cake to top it off? None that I want to be a part of. This raspberry coconut cake is perfect to have around for these occasions. It’s big so, unless you have a large gathering, it will last for a while. It’s one of those cakes that just seems to get better and better as it sits. And, since it’s made with…
  • Blueberry Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt Breakfast Pops

    Lauren Keating
    11 Jun 2015 | 1:30 am
    Sweet-tart blueberry rhubarb frozen yogurt breakfast pops, naturally sweetened with maple syrup, are my answer to hot summer mornings. My first apartment after college was a half mile away from the nearest metro stop. I didn’t think twice about the distance when I signed my lease, but I also had no idea how hot and sticky DC summers could be. During the summer months, that walk was brutal. In an effort to beat the heat, I started making frozen yogurt breakfast pops that I could enjoy on my way. I’ve made them in a ton of different flavors and with cereal or granola mixed in, but I…
  • Farro Salad with Creamy Vidalia Poppyseed Dressing

    Lauren Keating
    9 Jun 2015 | 1:30 am
    Picnic-perfect farro salad is studded with juicy peaches, cucumbers, and frizzled onions and tossed with creamy Vidalia Poppyseed dressing. It’s great as a side dish, but it’s also hearty enough to enjoy as as your main course. Last week, I finished my culinary program‘s unit on pantry staples. It was all about sauces, stocks, dressings, and quick pickles. More than any other unit so far, it really made me want to get in the kitchen!  I spent the weekend making vegetable stock, marinara sauce, and an amazing cashew bechamel that I’ll use to make creamed spinach later…

  • Cauliflower in a Herbs and Mustard Sauce

    Pots and Frills
    21 Jun 2015 | 6:55 pm
    When I am in Poland I like my cauliflower to be cooked and served in a traditional Polish way, sprinkled with fried breadcrumbs and accompanied by a tomato and onion salad. But this dish tastes best in Poland where cauliflower and tomatoes taste different than here. So whenever I make a cauliflower here, I am always looking for a recipe that is not similar to that Polish dish. Since this is a high season for a locally grown cauliflower I have been buying it more often at my local farmers market. Besides the traditional white ones, now they also come in yellow and purple varieties, which look…
  • Parmesan Cream

    Pots and Frills
    14 Jun 2015 | 1:44 pm
    I found very similar recipes for this cream in both Italian and French cuisine books. They seemed rather simple to make, especially if you are familiar with the bain marie method, and looked very delicious. Both recipes called for almost the same ingredients although the Italian was richer because of the heavy whipping cream, and the French was richer in eggs but lighter on cream. Just by reading of all the nice ingredients of this recipe I imagined that it could taste really nice so recently, when I bought a big chunk of genuine Italian Parmesan, I thought it was good time to experiment with…
  • Lemon-Wine Mousse with Berries

    Pots and Frills
    31 May 2015 | 6:03 am
    This light mousse is a perfect dessert for hot days. Very light and not too sour but, at the same time, almost spicy from the wine, this mousse can be served alone just with a delicate cookie. It can be also served with any berries. It goes great with strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries, or all of them mixed together. I made it this mousse last week and finished it with sweet raspberries and blueberries. Wherever they come from, they are now at their best in our region and their taste and sweetness go nicely with the tartness of the mousse. Lemon-Wine Mousse with Berries(Six servings)…
  • Tomato Pancakes with Herbs and Goat Yogurt

    Pots and Frills
    24 May 2015 | 4:23 pm
    I was raised in the culinary tradition where pancakes were always served sweet. In my quest to get to know other cuisines I have discovered that very often they are savory and can be made almost from any vegetable. My latest discoveries were pancakes made from corn and today's recipe--tomato pancakes. In a book about Greek cuisine I found out that fresh tomato pancakes are served in Santorini. I could only imagine how wonderful they can taste made from sweet ripe tomatoes and served on a hot evening with a glass of wine. The original Greek recipe is very simple and plain, easy to make. It…
  • Jerusalem Artichokes Soup

    Pots and Frills
    18 May 2015 | 5:20 pm
    Just before the season for Jerusalem artichokes (aka Sunchokes) ends, here is a recipe for a soup made from those artichokes. There is probably no simpler, practically, two-ingredient, and at the same time more intriguing soup. Because it is so easy I served it many times to my friends and each time I was asked for the recipe. The recipe is similar to some Italian recipes for the chestnut soup, where chestnuts are cooked with cream or milk, and turned into a purée. And that is what this sunchokes soups is too. Artichokes are cooked in milk, puréed, decorated, and the soup is ready. The…

    When I took my first bite of Belgiyum, I seriously went yummmmmm. This was #TheRealYumm. For someone who often makes fruit based ice creams at home, this was a welcome break. A rather delicious one too. The play of textures is so noticeable. The crackle of the smooth Belgian chocolate coating pairs really well with roasted slivered almonds. Then the rich, creamy, luxurious French vanilla ice creams floods your mouth. Need I say more?

There is an eternal charm in handwritten recipes of times gone by, this recipe book is from the 1960's.

It's no small task but look at how brilliant the beginning is. Because this is what they do best - design | craft | propagate. This will bring the spotlight back on our artisans, our craft, and our heritage. Do stop by and look at their range - everyday use, corporate gifting, wedding souveniers. It's uplifting, it's inspiring and it celebrates the revival of an almost lost art... The post Review | Coppre … Indian traditional copperware.

    Memorial Day is right around the corner, and it’s about that time to dust off your grill, gather friends and family, and throw a big, backyard bash.  I’ve put together a short list of simple recipes to help you get the party started.  But first, let’s talk party tips: Don’t make your whole menu from scratch.  Pair one or two (or three) of the recipes below with store-bought items to keep your event stress-free.  Just make sure everything is good-quality. If friends or family ask to bring something, tell them alcohol or ice.  I always forget to buy extra ice.

  • Behind the Food: Hodo Soy

    2 Jul 2015 | 9:34 am
    Full Circle works with the best farmers, ranchers and artisan producers in the industry to source only top-quality organic produce and other all-natural foods for our members. This week, we’re taking a deeper look at an Oakland-based company that crafts organic soy products. Hodo Soy As a child in Vietnam, Minh Tsai often took walks with his grandfather to the neighborhood tofu shack and the taste of those fresh flavors stayed with him throughout his life. Later, Tsai discovered that the artisan-quality soymilk, tofu and yuba he remembered fondly proved elusive in the US. Inspired by the…
  • How to Make Almond Milk at Home

    30 Jun 2015 | 12:59 pm
    Almonds have been in the news a lot lately because of the often repeated statistic that it takes an estimated one gallon of water to produce one almond. With 80 percent of the world’s almond supply coming from California–which is in the middle of an historic drought–this delicious and healthy nut is unluckily caught in the crosshairs. A 2014 article from Slate helps put the situation into perspective: California almonds use a stunning 1.1 trillion gallons of water each year, or enough for you to take a 10-minute shower each day for 86 million years (using a low-flow…

    You are likely as excited as I am about the joyful appearance of cherries bringing life to our Full Circle boxes and roadside stands. There is nothing like sitting down to a big bowl of cherries for a snack or dessert. Of course we are excited to throw any extra cherries into jams, strudels and pies, but I love using cherries in savory dishes. The tart-sweet flavor intensifies and cooks down to create a gorgeous sauce that, especially with this blend of flavors, lends a perfectly balanced juxtaposition to a tender, juicy slice of roasted pork loin. I hope you enjoy this simple yet impressive…

  • Light 4th of July Dessert Recipe

    Nicole
    30 Jun 2015 | 6:28 am
    My sister made this dessert recipe a few months ago, and I loved it! Probably because it was a Giada recipe. My favorite chef inspiration. Very light 4th of July dessert recipe and you can make it dairy or gluten free depending on your preferences. If you are dairy free, you could easily substitute a coconut yogurt. Strawberry Cream Parfaits Ingredients: 1 lb. bag of strawberries (Frozen or fresh: If fresh, you will want to add 1-2 tsp. sugar and let sit to allow the strawberries to get “juicy”). 1 cup heavy whipped cream, refrigerated 2 Tbsp. sour cream Meringue cookies – 1…
  • Grain Free Coconut Cookies

    Nicole

    I was looking to make a completely sinless cookie that is also gluten free. Tough idea, but I haven’t eaten cookies in forever since I have been avoiding wheat and cutting back on sugar as much as possible. This “cookie” recipe does not make true cookies–they are definitely more of a health food cookie. Just letting you know so you don’t make these and expect a different final product! I cooked them on a griddle pan so that the outside got crispy. You want to almost have a pancake cooking technique with these. Grain Free Coconut Cookies Makes about about 9 small…

  • 3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes!

    Nicole
    29 Mar 2015 | 4:46 pm
    These are the easiest protein pancakes that I have ever made. They do get a little crumbly because they are only 3 ingredients. But, the taste is still great, and they are very filling due to the high protein and fiber content. I will also give you options of other ingredients you can add to enhance the texture and flavor. 3 Ingredient Protein Pancakes Makes 1 serving of 4 medium pancakes 1.5 scoops of a good quality grass-fed whey protein (sweetened with stevia is preferable) about 1/4 cup coconut flour about 2 Tbsp. brown rice flour Other ingredients you could add if you have on hand: 1/2…

    Spring and summer are here, and I’ve moved more towards making lighter dishes, but over Memorial Day I had a craving for chili that I just had to satisfy. Enter: This slow cooker white bean chili. I was inspired by this recipe from CookingLight, and powered by my slow cooker (which I absolutely love for cooking dried beans and lentils) – we ended up with a delicious smoky chili packed with veggies, protein and deep spices. And can I just tell you – the leftovers the next day were even more rich and flavorful. The perfect balance of heat from the ancho chilis, the…

    At one of my favorite restaurants in SF, Nopa, they serve the most delicious baked white beans, topped with feta, herbs and breadcrumbs. It comes warm and sizzling in a skillet: crispy from the breadcrumbs, creamy from the beans, and with a little bit of bite from the feta. Since we’re far far away from Nopa now, I was determined to try to recreate their “Wood Baked Giant White Beans” at home. And when I came across this recipe from Vegetarian Times, I knew I had found the inspiration I was looking for! You can make it with dried beans but I chose to do it with canned to…

    Tomatoes are coming in season! I absolutely adore summer tomatoes. They are juicy, ripe, plump and there are so many varieties that are available: heirloom (my fav), roma, beefsteak, plum, cherry, grape – I could go on and on. One of our guilty pleasures is freshly made creamy tomato soup with grilled cheese. I like to healthify it by making my grilled cheese on sprouted wheat bread, using olive oil spray instead of butter, and using a secret ingredient instead of cream for the tomato soup. My lighter tomato soup was inspired by a recipe from CookingLight. I roast the tomatoes and…

    Way back before the turn of the century while living in San Francisco, one of our favorite restaurants was Caffe Sport, whose specialty is Italian seafood. This dish is inspired by one of their most popular menu items, “Scampi al’ Antonio”, created by Chef and founder Antonio La Tona.Our version is bursting with two garlic flavors; piquant fresh and sweet roasted then adds enough cayenne pepper to brighten things up without burning. We’ve added just the right amount of the king of Italian cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano, to give this white sauce a perfect creaminess and a hint of cheese…

    Whether you prepare Consommé, Bisque, Chowder or just Soup, you’re making something that just about everyone loves. 
Some soups, especially intense and clarified consommés or rich and creamy bisques are usually served as one of several courses in a meal. Others are equally appropriate occupying the “soup course” or as the star of the meal. 
This is one of those soups that serve as a complete meal - it’s hardy without being heavy and when served with a fresh loaf of crusty bread, a few crisp greens and some fruit no one will be looking for anything else to come out of the…

    Here’s a dish that is so easy to prepare you’ll feel guilty when your dinner companion raves about it. The flavor combination of tarragon, garlic and lemon are a natural with just about any mild seafood. We use them all sparingly to avoid overpowering the distinctive but delicate taste of the shrimp.If truly fresh shrimp is available to you, by all means use it for this recipe and any other time you prepare a dish with shrimp as the primary ingredient. But be sure that they are truly fresh and not “previously frozen” and then thawed. Almost all commercially available shrimp is frozen…

    I love cake, but I have a serious aversion to bad cake. What do I mean by bad cake? Too-sweet cake. Too-dry cake. Boring cake. Uninspired cake. Cake that tastes like it’s made from a cake mix, or cake that has a texture resembling a used sponge from a college cafeteria dish pit. Some people believe that any and all cake is good, just for the sheer fact that it’s cake. I’m not like that. For me, bad cake is the worst form of baking heresy. And there are a lot of bad cakes out there. I’m always tinkering with recipes, trying to make them more interesting. More……

Things go wonky: Cake pans overflow, vegetables melt into a gray gelatinous puddle, chicken suddenly decides to go rubbery in the frying pan.

One &@$#!% potato refused to cook while all the other potatoes in the oven baked just fine. Either this potato had nine lives or there was something seriously wrong with it.

    As a little girl, I'd get utterly giddy at the thought of a Root Beer Float, and to this day, it's strongly connected with many pleasant childhood memories. One of my goals as a recipe developer is to recreate comfort foods, replacing processed ingredients with healthy ingredients. While visiting a local spice shop the other day, I picked up a natural Root Beer Extract. The smell alone sent me straight down memory lane. I arrived home inspired to create. While not an actual "soda," the flavor is quite reminiscent of Root Beer floats. When I obtain my dream ice cream maker, I…

    This beautifully fragrant apple spice cake is the perfect excuse to sit down to afternoon tea. There’s something so special about making time in the afternoon to sit down for a cup of tea and a slice of cake. It’s something I grew up with. My Nan or Mum would always be baking something, and we’d all take turns going to each other’s houses for tea and cake. Mum liked to make Victoria Sponge, Meringues (although these were more of a special occasion thing) and Apple Cakes. Click to continue reading Apple Spice Cake.

  • Tuscan Bean Soup {vegan + gluten free}

    Jennifer @ Delicious Everyday
    9 Jun 2015 | 9:55 pm
    This hearty Tuscan bean soup is so warming and nourishing. It’s sure to cure whatever ails you! Serve with your favourite crusty bread. My husband and I have been taking turns getting sick with the flu over the last few weeks. I don’t know about you, but the first thing I feel like is a big bowl of nourishing soup. The more vegetables packed in the better. Somehow it feels the more vegetables I pack into a soup, the faster I will recover. Click to continue reading Tuscan Bean Soup {vegan + gluten free}.

  • Mushroom, Pear & Cavolo Nero Toasts with Walnuts {vegan}

    Jennifer @ Delicious Everyday
    2 Jun 2015 | 9:21 pm
    These scrumptious brunch toasts are topped with earthy mushrooms and slightly bitter cavolo nero which contrast beautifully with sweet pear and leeks. The finishing touch is a sprinkling of toasted walnuts. One of the things I particularly love about mushrooms, apart from how amazingly good they are for you, is how versatile they are. They are completely at home on your plate at breakfast, lunch or dinner, and always fantastic. Click to continue reading Mushroom, Pear & Cavolo Nero Toasts with Walnuts {vegan}.

Once summer arrives, dinners are a little more relaxed at our house. There are fewer scheduled activities and more time to enjoy family dinners. Some nights cooking is a fun family affair.

  • Hawaiian Pizza Quesadillas #WeekdaySupper

    Marjory

    Hawaiian Pizza Quesadillas are a fun twist on this pizza parlor favorite. Flour tortillas are slathered with barbecue sauce, topped with ham, pineapple, red onion and cheese, and then pan fried until everything is melty on the inside and crispy on the outside. Quesadillas always go over big at our house…they’re festive. And, I love festive, especially mid-week. But, it’s easy to fall into a rut and make the same old ingredient combination over and over and over again. No more! A new flavor profile has taken over at our house…ham, pineapple, BBQ sauce, red onion, and…

  • 10 of America's Best Farmers Markets

    Lindsay-Jean Hard
    2 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    The ten must-see farmers markets you should add to your bucket list. We love visiting farmers markets—and judging by the photos you share with us every week, you love them, too. Farmers markets provide some of the best places to get fresh, seasonal produce (often at prices better than a grocery store's, too). But they also play other important roles in our communities. By purchasing your goods directly from the people who grow it, you're supporting family farms, stemming the rapid loss of farmland, and helping to guarantee that more money stays in your community. According to American…
  • 9 Foods to Stress-Eat While Marathoning "True Detective"

    Caroline Lange
    2 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    Last season, True Detective gripped us: Every week, it was an hour of nail-biting and adrenaline rushes. The show is finally back, and we expect nothing less of its second season.  With the tangled, brooding plots of the new characters on our minds, this is not a time for prim, delicate snacking (though there is a time for that), nor for guiding a spoon into your mouth. This is a time for shoveling things in haphazardly, eyes glued to the screen. (We're only two episodes in and already sweating over—spoiler alert—whether Ray is alive or not!) So,…

    Would you like a piece of cake right now? For Goodness Cake is here for you. Today: The story of a person who rejected birthday cake for his birthday—and the cheesecake he got in its stead. It's hard to make a birthday cake for someone (especially someone you care about) who doesn't like cake.

  • Bengali Shorshe Bata Maach - Mustard Fish

    26 Jun 2015 | 12:41 am
    Here is a bit of advice. Don't ever come between a Bengali and his fish. In fact, just to be safe, don't ever come between a Bengali and his food. They take it very seriously. Afternoon naps are the only other thing that are as dear to a Bengali as his fish. A Bengali meal is incomplete without some kind of fish curry in it. When I went back to visit my grandmother this past December, at some point I counted two types of fish curry, fried fish along with two other vegetable preparations on my plate. Yes, we take our fish very seriously indeed! "Shorshe bata maach", or fish cooked in…

    Indian Chinese Shrimp Chow Mein Noodle BowlWhen Chinese food arrived in India more than a couple of centuries ago, it incorporated the influences of Indian flavors and resulted in the most delicious marriage of cuisines - The Indo-Chinese cuisine. The Chinese community in India settled in the eastern part of the country, mainly around Kolkata - formerly known as Calcutta, the birthplace of Indo-Chinese food. Chow mein is standard Indian Chinese fare. You can swap the shrimp out for any protein of your choice - chicken, beef, pork, tofu and even paneer. Now on to the fried spicy garlicky…

India has a very strong tea culture. If you visit someone, they'll offer you a cup of tea within the first minute of you walking in through the door. There are two very different types of tea though. The strong Indian milky sugary tea is popular in most parts of India except for in the Eastern part, where  the lighter Darjeeling tea is more common. "Chai" is the hindi word for tea.

    30 May 2015 | 5:51 pm
    Calling this dish a weeknight lifesaver is a bit of an understatement! It takes about 20 minutes from start to finish and tastes absolutely delicious. Use Thai basil if you can find it, but regular Italian basil works too if you're not too fussy. You can adjust the spice level by changing the amount of red chilies in the dish. I wouldn't recommend leaving it out all together. For palates with lower heat tolerance, I'd suggest using one chili pepper and discarding the seeds.Total Time - 20 MinutesYield - Serves 2Ingredients1 LB Ground Chicken6-7 Cloves Garlic2 Red Chili Peppers1 Red Bell…

  • Pastrami Kimchi Scramble

    Tekesha
    8 Jun 2015 | 3:00 am
    We love going to a local deli for breakfast. They have an amazing reuben omelet and I thought it might be interesting to swap out the typical sauerkraut with kimchi. This is what kimchi looks like: It is fermented cabbage and you can find it in the fresh produce section of your supermarket. The second interesting thing about this recipe is the technique. I don’t really care for scrambles that look like a big goopy mess on the plate with a thin layer of egg just sort of covering everything. So I cooked this in a manner that let the eggs set up on the bottom of the skillet and the pastrami…

    I saw a version of this on a Publix Apron recipe card. Does anyone else look at those cards for recipe ideas? They’re a really good resource. The recipe called for thick boneless chops and teriyaki sauce. I wasn’t in the mood for such a heavy Asian flavor, so I used ponzu sauce instead. Using thin-cut chops meant I was barely at the stove. Toss it on a plate with some salad and you have the perfect summer lunch.

    I’m so desperate to be done with decorating my house. Every day when I come home, there are boxes in front of my door and phone calls to return from delivery people. I have to remind myself to live and enjoy life now and not to wait for everything to be perfectly in its place. Today’s recipe is all about the technique. Elevating a whole chicken off the base of the crockpot allows it to brown beautifully and cooking it at a lower temperature than in the oven means the meat is fall-off-the-bone-tender. I used Goya Sazon seasoning because that’s what I like, but you could easily swap it…

    There’s nothing more refreshing than a nice, cool smoothie on a Summers day. When it’s hot outside, I love sipping on sweet, fruity smoothies! And when it comes to fruit, I definitely have a few favourites. Although pretty much every fruit is delicious to me (except lychees – I can’t quite bring myself to like them), particular fruits like mango, bananas, nectarines, cherries and raspberries – to name a few, make my heart content. So, when it came to making this smoothie, I knew I had to involve a few of my favourite ingredients. Keeping it simple to begin with,…

    I’ve actually had a few suggestions from people recently to create some food illustrations. Strangely, I’m not sure why I hadn’t thought of doing this myself before. Spending most days cooking and creating recipes, it would make sense for me to enjoy drawing food as much as eating it! However, I’ve never really drawn any food before. So, due to my requests, I finally decided it was time for me to begin some food illustration. For my first illustrations, I decided to go for a food that everyone loves – cupcakes!

    Couscous is definitely a summer staple in my household. I’ve said before how much I love to make salads at this time of the year, so experimenting with different flavours, recipes and ingredients for them is something I love to do at the moment. When it comes to salads, I often like to mix and match different foods and transform them into a big, mixed bowl full of different flavours. Usually, I prepare different things – like grains, pastas, roasted vegetables, dressings and dips ahead of time, and then merge them all together for a comforting dinner. One of the dishes I really…

The flavours in pesto itself are always so delicious, refreshing and vibrant, and make the perfect addition to any meal.

Where I live, I’m fortunate enough to be surrounded by lots of beautiful wildlife and see several different species of wild animals every day. Some days, there are specific animals I see repeatedly, but on other days there can be a species I’ve never even seen before. There’s definitely something magical about having an untamed, wild animal appear in front of you. Whenever I see one during my day, I’m always eager to find out whether there could possibly be a…

It’s amazing how the heat kept us from wanting big meals, preferring to have lots of nutritious snacks on hand. I found myself making tons of smoothies, popsicles, yogurt dip, salsas and more for all of us. Even when it comes to snacking I try to offer a variety of…
  • Chilled Avocado Soup

    C. McCord
    25 Jun 2015 | 8:45 am
    Is there anything more luscious and creamy on a hot summer’s day then a bowl full of Chilled Avocado Soup? To be completely honest I hadn’t ever tried it before until a few months ago when I saw it on a restaurant menu and a pregnancy craving screamed for it. As Chloe is my avocado loving child, over the years she’s turned me from an avocado loather to an avocado lover! With all of the incredible varieties of avocados that we stock up on at our famers market like Hass, Fuerte, Bacon and Zutano, it’s easy to get inspired to come home and prepare recipes like Avocado Toast, Avocado…

    23 Jun 2015 | 8:45 am
    Last week I showed you how to make these delectable burgers and this week I’m giving you a host of tips on how to make them in this BBQ Chicken Burgers Video. We make them all year round, but honestly there’s no better time then summer time our on the barbecue or for a Fourth of July Celebration with a group of friends. The best part is that they can be formed ahead of time, so you just need to cook them up at the last minute. If you don’t have a big grill you can easily do them in a sauté pan in the kitchen, but those grill marks you get on the barbecue really do give them a ton of…

  • Apple Pie: The All American Dessert

    Heather Rodgers
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:26 am
    As American as apple pie. If you grew up in the US like we did, chances are good that you’ve probably heard this saying at least a few times in your life. Never minding that we Americans sometimes use strange proxies to qualify our patriotism (i.e. Budweiser beer, Uncle Sam, PB&Js, etc), we were curious as to how the apple pie really came to be so American after all. Where that simple question took us we couldn’t have ever expected.

  • Mansaf: Jordanian Lamb, Yogurt & Rice Pilaf

    Cyrus Roepers
    26 Jun 2015 | 6:55 am
    Sometimes calling a dish “traditional” can be misleading. Sure, mansaf has been long associated as the national dish of a young modern Jordanian nation, but key parts of this yogurt, meat and rice pilaf were introduced as recently as last century. For a land with such a deep and rich history – like Petra, one of the 7 World Wonders – a dish with 100 years of history seems almost like a drop in the bucket. Nevertheless, through its many different parts, mansaf is as deeply woven into various woven into Jordanian culture as you might find anyplace else. Mansaf, Thereed,…
  • Tabouli: Syrian Parsley & Bulgur Salad

    Cyrus Roepers
    24 Jun 2015 | 7:49 am
    Sure, there are some foods that have become so popular that everyone knows about them. Tabouli certainly qualifies in that category. Even in non-Mediterranean, non-Levantine restaurants around our area, chances are good you can find at least some form of this parsley and bulgur wheat salad on the menu. And yet, despite its ubiquity, it seems like few actually know about what makes tabouli so special. After all, there had to be something that caused it to become as popular as it has. We kept this in mind as we pursued our research into the wonders of tabouli, and what we found was so very…
  • Lamingtons: Australian Sponge Cakes

    Cyrus Roepers
    19 Jun 2015 | 8:13 am
    It’s funny how food can have a certain lasting power little else can match. Surely, lamingtons are a fabulous sponge cake dessert, but that it has monopolized the Lamington name – and a decorated political career to boot – serves as a testament to the power of food. It kind of makes you feel for Lord Lamington, the former Governor of Queensland and the catalyst for this prized Australian dessert. Lord Lamington, His Political Career, and Sponge Cakes Indeed, the lamington (which we’ll explore much more in depth soon enough) is a decadent sponge cake dessert worthy…
  • Anzac Biscuits: New Zealand Rolled Oats Crisps

    17 Jun 2015 | 8:36 am
    There is an unmistakeable power of food that can, at times, evoke powerful memories and emotions in all of us. In Australia and New Zealand, the Anzac biscuit most certainly qualifies as one of those foods. Even as a relatively simple recipe featuring little more than rolled oats and honey, these little cookies serve as an invaluable symbol of a seminal period in both nations’ histories. In the case of this particular culinary memorial, its delicious taste is just the tip of the iceberg. Anzac Biscuits and The Gallipoli Campaign Understanding the true power of the Anzac biscuit involves…

    Since reducing my family’s meat consumption over the past year or so, I’ve been trying to find ways to incorporate a little meat into our diets from time to time.  You see, my family seems to think they cannot live without meat in their lives.  While I disagree with that and can live a full and meaningful life without meat, in the interest of family harmony, sometimes I make something with meat in it.  The difference in my meat dishes now is that I make every effort to have the meat play a supporting role rather than being the star of the show.  That can be somewhat of a…

    MyRealFoodFamily
    25 Jun 2015 | 2:00 am
    Since focusing on eating more of a plant-based diet, I’ve found myself eating a lot more bell peppers.  Sure they are scrumptious bites of yumminess but I love the color they add to every dish.  As part of a healthy diet, nutritionists recommend eating a rainbow of colors.  Bell peppers make it extremely easy to incorporate a variety of colors.  The amazing part of this recipe is that it doesn’t use any oil so it’s a really low calorie dish.  I could eat these by themselves all day long but they’d be a great compliment to fajitas, salads, or as a side dish.

    A couple of weeks ago I started a 21 day purification program that eliminated certain foods from my diet.  While most people do detox programs like this to lose weight, I am trying to figure out if I have any food sensitivities that are causing problems for me.  As part of the program, I can eat as many vegetables as I’d like as well as half as many fruits as vegetables.  I can also have lentils and quinoa and a few other things (spices, vegetable broth).  I ordinarily eat really clean and healthy but eating only fruits, vegetables, lentils and quinoa was a challenge.  To create…

    The Tastes of India

  • Bhindi Masala Curry Recipe

    Puja
    2 Jul 2015 | 2:15 pm
    Bhindi Masala Curry Recipe – Bhindi (Lady Finger) is a vegetable that a lot of people do not like primarily because of the mucilage that you normally see in these species of plants. It looks like a slime and irritates a lot of people. But it is noteworthy that Bhindi is an extremely good vegetable when it comes to its nutritional value and this mucilage contains a usable form of soluble fiber. It is a good source of calcium and potassium. But with the way most of us cook it in India, a lot of its nutritional aspects are lost. I always liked Bhindi even as a kid and Bhindi bhujia, a stir…

    Kerala Style Potato Curry – I had posted the recipe for one of my favorite South Indian foods called “Appam” a few days back. The potato curry (urulakizhangu curry, urulakizhangu meaning potato in Malayalam) is a kind of stew that goes really well with Appam. Vegetable Stews are the favorite side dishes when it comes to breakfast dishes made from rice, like appam, puttu, noolappam etc. And how it tastes is something that you can only experience. It is difficult putting it in words. Most stews made in Kerala has coconut milk as an essential ingredient. And the process of extracting…

And these stories of struggles cover a wide range of topics from monetary problems and over-weight problems to family problems. I was no different until about a couple of years back. I had my own stories of struggle. I could easily find a hundred reasons for not doing something until I found out that I was suffering from a disease called as “Excusitis”.

  • 5 Herbs With AntiOxidant Properties that You can Use in Your Recipes

    Puja
    22 Jun 2015 | 11:22 am
    What is an anti-oxidant? Before I put it in simple terms, let us look at what the Wikipedia has to say about “anti-oxidants” – An antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Oxidation is a chemical reaction involving the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state. Oxidation reactions can produce free radicals. In turn, these radicals can start chain reactions. When the chain reaction occurs in a cell, it can cause damage or death to the cell. Antioxidants terminate these chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates, and…
  • Wet Coconut Chutney for Appam

    Puja
    18 Jun 2015 | 12:04 pm
    Wet Coconut Chutney for Appam – Coconut oil is one of the few foods that has been classified as “Super Foods”. Research shows that Coconut has a lot of benefits and so does coconut oil. Some research says that Coconut oil is good for heart and yet others say that it helps prevent obesity. All of this makes it one essential part of your food habits. Once of the reasons I like Dosa, Idli and Appam is because of the tasty Coconut chutney it is served with. The flavor of coconut gives it a nice aroma and taste that adds to anything that it is served with. While there are many different…

Now, I’ll be the first to admit that we totally spoil our cats, but that’s part of the fun of being a pet owner! Here are 5 of the tried and true products that we (and our cats) have come to love over the years. 1. Drinkwell Platinum Fountain This filtered water fountain is one of the best things we’ve gotten for our cats. Not only is it perfect for every day use, but it also makes going on trips easy, because it holds a…

    It’s Secret Recipe Club day again! These monthly posts always make me realize how quickly time goes by – it seems like I was just writing March’s SRC post, and here I am doing June’s already. Life is crazy, man. This month, I was assigned Mangia, written by Chelsy. She’s got all kinds of yummy looking recipes, and a lot of them are Gluten Free, so if you’re looking for a variety of GF recipe ideas, Chelsy is your girl! I was so torn about what to make this month, because honestly, everything on Chelsy’s blog looked delicious! I thought about making…
  • Strawberry Ice Cream with Magic Shell

    ashleynevis
    12 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    Favorite.Recipe.Ever. But really, I think this is the best thing I’ve ever made. Summer practically begs for homemade ice cream, so when my mom gave me some strawberries that she picked up from a roadside stand a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to make them into my favorite creamy dessert. But I couldn’t stop there, right? I’d heard or read somewhere that you could make a homemade version of magic shell topping with chocolate and coconut oil, so I gave that a try too. Guys, I am shocked at how much it tastes like store-bought magic shell. It’s insane. It hardens within…
  • Highlighted Kindle Quotes Part 2

    I did a post like this back in October, and since I’ve read some great stuff over the past few months, I thought it was about time to do it again. I might just have to make this a bit of a regular feature every six months or so! 10 (More) Quotes I’ve Highlighted on my Kindle: 1. “Life was full of small instances, little moments when a simple decision had extraordinary consequences years down the road.” – The Affair, Colette Freedman 2. “I suppose all couples feel this way at some point—that their bond is the most special, the strongest, the Greatest Love of…

  • Superfood Spotlight: Quinoa (Health Benefits, Cooking Tips & More)

    Elle
    30 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    For those of you who aren’t already familiar with quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah), get ready to have your mind blown. Originating from the South America Andes, quinoa has been referred to by the Incas as being the “mother of all grains” (though, technically quinoa isn’t a grain at all, but the seed of the Goosefoot plant, which is related to beets, Swiss chard, and spinach). Dubbed a super-food, not only is quinoa gluten free, but it’s also a balanced and complete source of protein that’s rich in vitamins and minerals, with a notable Vitamin E content, making it the…
  • Summer Berries with Vanilla Mascarpone Cream

    Elle
    23 Jun 2015 | 11:00 pm
    This is definitely not a brand new discovery, but it is oh-my-goodness-how-could-something-so-simple-be-so-delicious good! What’s not to love about fresh summer berries and my secret dessert weapon – mascarpone. Naturally sweet, yet surprisingly light, buttery soft mascarpone cheese makes everything taste glorious (and with 1/2 the calories of butter, it’s not as bad you might think, plus who would ever think of being so self indulgent to squirrel away a whole tub of it for themselves? Okay, I could consider this…). Even with two generous servings you could work this one off…
  • Seasonal Spotlight: Chive Buds & Blossoms

    Elle
    21 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    Chives with their beautiful purple buds are one of the prettiest things I’ve stumbled across at the farmers’ market lately. And guess what? The entire plant is edible, even when in full bloom with its pale purple flowers! You’re probably familiar with chives and their delicate just-the-right-amount-of onion-without-being-overpowering flavor. But what about their pretty little buds or blossoms? Just like the stem, both the purple buds and the light purple flowers are flavorful and aromatic with a mild, light onion flavor. They are perfect for adding a decorative touch to any…
  • Cucumber Salad Rings with Cilantro-Honey-Lime Dressing

    Elle
    19 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    Yes, we already know that I love the fresh combination of cucumbers and cilantro. With the addition of creamy fresh mozzarella, peppery arugula, crisp apples and crunchy peanuts, this refreshing and tasty starter makes a wonderful accompaniment to any summer menu! The inspiration for this recipe came from my friend Denise. It’s based on a version she raved about. I made a number of adaptions to Denise’s original version because, frankly there are some things I love and so added them them to the list of ingredients. Case in point: cilantro. Love it in practically e v e r y t h i n…
  • Antioxidants vs Free Radicals

    Elle
    17 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    The science is clear: plant-based foods are good for you — the dietary superstars. But what’s all this talk about antioxidants? I think we have all heard claims on how important they are for maintaining youth, vitality, and health and so on. But what does it all mean? WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS? Antioxidants are compounds that primarily come from vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that may protect us from the harmful effects of oxidation and counteract the effects of damage caused by free radicals. Without pulling out the biochemistry books — simply put…when cells in our…

    Have you ever gone to the mall and fallen in love with the cinnamon and sugar pretzel bites. They are a little sweet and salty at the same time. These are easy to make, and one batch can make enough for a hungry crowd.Who doesn’t love pretzels? So often we just enjoy the crunchy ones, they are known for being somewhat healthy.

    This rice side dish is super easy, and it is just as tasty as it is easy. Don’t be surprised if your guests really enjoy this dish.Are you ever looking for a simple side dish? This recipe requires just 4 ingredients, you will need a can of French Onion Soup mix, a can of Beef consume, and a stick of butter, and uncooked rice. Some people call this recipe French Onion Soup Rice, others just call it “Stick of Butter Rice”. This is a completely easy dish to make and the canned soup makes it easy.

    Stephanie
    21 Jun 2015 | 8:55 pm
    Applebees Queso Blanco is a favorite appetizer of so many. This white queso recipe is smooth, creamy, and has just that little bit of spice.White Queso dips, or queso blanco may at first seem like a mystery, I promise, it isn’t. A quick trip to the deli and you will be in the queso making business. I don’t know why, but white queso seems to be very perplexing. Many of the cheese sauces you find in restaurants have American cheese as their base. Before you recoil in horror consider that American cheese has its place. Quite honestly it does a fantastic job of melting, and making…

    Grilled Buffalo Wings are a summertime favorite at my house. I love buffalo wings and it is hard to beat them, but you can grill, this makes your recipe for buffalo wings simply out standing.I make my own hot wing sauce for this recipe. I personally love Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, to me this has the best flavor. Many standard hot wing sauces are simply a mixture of butter and hot sauce, and I will admit this sauce tastes quite good. For my grilled wings I like to add a little something more. To prepare this sauce I like to add some fresh garlic and some fresh hot peppers to add some…

  • Prenatal DHA: It’s Just as Important as Your Prenatal Vitamin

    Jessa Nowak

    This article provides the opportunity to win Nordic Natural’s Prenatal DHA! (Scroll to the bottom for details.) What Every Mom Needs to Know About DHA One of the most important reasons to take a multivitamin early in pregnancy is to ensure adequate intake of folic acid. In 1996, the FDA felt it was so important, that they stepped in and required most grains to be fortified with the vitamin (among others). Now, most breakfast cereals contain the full amount of folate needed in a single serving. (1) Not to undermine the importance of the prenatal vitamin (as it is…
  • How to Cook Chicken Breast Better Than The Rest: A Step By Step Image Tutorial

    Jessa Nowak
    19 Jun 2015 | 9:28 pm
    The Best Way to Cook Chicken Breast There is beauty in simplicity. A perfectly cooked chicken breast can top a good salad and make it great. It can stand alone on the plate, leaving you wanting more. Used as the base of another recipe, better chicken means a better dish. Cooking perfect chicken may seem easy but it’s deceivingly difficult…if you aren’t using the right method.  Chicken breast that is perfectly cooked has a beautiful brown crust, is seasoned perfectly, and has a juicy, tender middle. Can you say all that about your chicken? If not, you may wish to…
  • Creamy Cucumber Onion Salad

    14 Jun 2015 | 10:53 pm
    This cucumber onion salad brings back many memories of eating at Nana and Papa’s house. With a little alteration, Nana’s classic recipe now has 1/3 of the calories. Make a tradition in your house with this super simple, yet entirely satisfying salad. And you can enjoy it for just 150 calories.   Only having 4 main ingredients, this salad can be whipped up in no time at all. It’s great for weeknights that call for a quick meal, yet scrumptious enough to serve at a party. Thinly sliced cucumbers and white onions play the main roles in this re-done classic.

  • Ditch the Sippy Cup & Bottle: 3 Real Health Reasons to Follow Through

    Jessa Nowak
    9 Jun 2015 | 10:34 pm
    I never thought twice about kids walking around with bottles, until I had my own. The unfortunate thing about this habit is that it can result in real health consequences. Teaching your baby to drink from an open cup early on will allow for an easy transition when she grows. Unbeknownst to many, due to the strong marketing influence from sippy cup companies, babies don’t need to go through cup “stages” to finally reach the ultimate open cup. Your 6 month old can master drinking from a small baby cup in a matter of days.  Begin as you mean to go. What…
  • Quinoa Tabbouleh

    This vibrant main meal salad pairs perfectly with some hummus and cucumbers. Pour yourself a glass of wine and you’ve got the ideal meal for a hot summer night. Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe I love tabbouleh, but I’m not a huge fan of couscous. Couscous doesn’t offer too much when it comes to nutrition. It’s basically a pasta. So why not amp up the nutritional value without sacrificing flavor or texture? Swapping couscous for quinoa provides more than double the fiber, more protein, significantly more iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It also possesses a…

  • Melty Smore's Dip

    Carrie Louise
    30 Jun 2015 | 6:26 pm
    This dessert doesn't need much of an introduction. It's basically an excuse to eat an entire dish of smore's, without having to keep track of how many actual smore's you've really eaten. They make a nice presentation, they're neater to eat, and can serve a crowd if necessary. Throw the dip together right before you plan to eat it, so the chocolate is perfectly melty and gooey, then dig in! Melty Smore's Dip Recipe By Carrie Louise (adapted from Spend With Pennies) Makes enough for up to 4 people Ingredients: 4 Hershey's Bars 2 tablespoons of any variety of milk 3 cups of mini marshmallows…
  • Healthy Granola

    Some things are just way easier and cheaper to make at home. Granola is one of those things. You can be snacking on a batch of fresh, crunchy granola, in less time than it takes to run out to the store to buy a box. I like to control the quality of the ingredients, and the amount of each that is used. Store bought granola can be much too sweet, and typically has a lot of fat. Even worse, the sugar and fat comes from unhealthy sources. Use this recipe as a base, then modify it using any type of nuts or seeds that you prefer. Sprinkle it on yogurt, use it for snacking, add it to baked goods…
  • Yellow Birthday Cake with Milk Chocolate Frosting

    Carrie Louise
    18 Jun 2015 | 12:24 pm
    When I'm making a birthday cake for someone, I always offer lots of flavor choices, everything from pistachio to peanut butter, from white chocolate to raspberry, from mocha to coconut, but I almost always get the same request: yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I've made so many of these cakes I could never even begin to count them all. There are various recipes and methods that I use, depending on time and how I want the final cake to turn out, so this one that I'm sharing is very straight forward and can be made quickly and easily, with no fancy steps. The cake is moist and fairly dense,…
  • Biscoff Pretzel Bars with Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate

    4 Jun 2015 | 7:24 pm
    I was throwing a party and I had planned an ice cream sundae bar for dessert, so everyone could make their own huge sundae, with all the toppings you could desire. The morning of the party, it occurred to me that perhaps some (crazy) people don't like ice cream, and I needed a quick dessert so there was an alternative to serve. Bar cookies to the rescue! For something quick and easy, I often turn to bars, since you just dump it all into one pan, rather than making sheet after sheet of cookies. There are so many possibilities with these bars, so be creative and use whatever flavor combinations…
  • Lemon Creme Pie Bars with Gingersnap Crust

    Carrie Louise
    25 May 2015 | 5:49 pm
    Most often, you'll find that lemon flavored desserts are either lacking in the lemon flavor department, or they are seriously over sweetened. To be delicious, they must have a nice balance of sweetness to tartness. Traditional lemon bars have a strange texture to me; the consistency is a bit to much like a 'gel,' and the crust is too floury. Being a bit of a perfectionist, I love when desserts have a nice, clean slice, with no ragged edges. These Lemon Creme Pie Bars meet all the requirements for the perfect lemon dessert. Creamy, refreshing, lemony, and just the right amount of sweetness.

  • Oven Fried Chicken Wings with Korean BBQ Sauce

    Maggie
    2 Jul 2015 | 4:01 am
    These are the most crispy oven baked wings ever! Serve them with the sticky Korean BBQ sauce, and I guarantee you won’t have any left, as you’ll devour the whole batch! Wings are classic. Why? Because they have a magical power to cheer you up, whatever the occasion may be. Yesterday I officially retired. The first thing I did – I took a nice morning walk to a nearby supermarket, bought a batch of chicken wings, cooked them using this recipe, and ate them all with a chilled bottle of Chardonnay. I felt good immediately. I know, I know, I should have washed them down with cold beer.
  • Chinese BBQ Sticky Rice Cake

    Maggie
    26 Jun 2015 | 4:01 am
    This sticky rice cake recipe teaches you a fun way to enjoy leftover Chinese BBQ. It uses kale to create a gooey green-colored bun that has a delicate flavor and goes great with the meaty filling. If you’ve been following my blog, you know that Thomas and I had a great BBQ session a while back. We grilled so many things that I felt like I didn’t need to cook meat for a year. Well, in reality, I didn’t have to cook meat for nearly two weeks. What could we do with all the leftover BBQ? Tacos and salad were two obvious choices, and we did cook such dishes several times. By the way,…
  • Braised Crispy Tofu with Shrimp

    Maggie
    23 Jun 2015 | 4:01 am
    Braised crispy tofu is the BEST TOFU EVER! The tofu is coated with egg, grilled until crispy, and then braised in a rich shrimp chicken stock. The tofu is so tender and absorbs tons of flavor. It’s a protein-packed comfort dish that you can prep and cook in 25 minutes! Tofu is such a versatile ingredient that can be made into very different textures and flavors in Chinese cooking. I have already introduced Mapo Tofu, Sweet and Sour Tofu, Salt and Pepper Tofu, Green Onion Tofu Salad and Seafood Tofu Stew. But I just couldn’t stop there! I tried a new way to cook tofu recently and I LOVED…
  • Kimchi Chicken Quesadillas

    Maggie
    18 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    Kimchi chicken quesadillas use minimal seasoning to create the best flavor. Tender chicken + pungent kimchi + melted cheese = perfection! The minute I took a big bite of the kimchi quesadilla from Chi’lantro, I knew I would be stealing the idea. And I did. Chi’lantro serves creative Korean fusion Tex-Mex. They have a restaurant and a food truck in Austin. Thomas and I visited the food truck for a quick lunch. We ordered spicy chicken quesadillas and the original kimchi fries. It was like a dream come true – everything on the menu had kimchi on it! The quesadillas were loaded with…
  • Jambalaya Fried Rice

    Maggie
    16 Jun 2015 | 5:10 am
    This Jambalaya fried rice uses cajun spices, smoked sausage, and okra to create a fusion rendition of a classic dish in 30 minutes. Learn the method to cook the perfect rice in one pan. Fried rice is one of the ultimate comfort foods for me. Since it’s one of the quickest Chinese foods to cook, it’s almost certainly on our lunch menu every week. It is the type of dish where I rarely need to refer to a recipe in order to make. I just use whatever spices I have in the pantry, along with some leftover veggies from the fridge. After 30 minutes, I can always come up with a plateful of goodies…

  • 3-Ingredient Lentil Dip

    25 Jun 2015 | 3:58 pm
    The first time I tried this recipe, I didn’t even know what lentils were. A friend of mine served it at a get-together, and I couldn’t stop eating it. This was also the recipe that made me fall in love with goat cheese. Most lentil dip recipes use feta cheese, but my friend had used the crumpled goat cheese from Trader Joe’s. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked. I tend to replace feta in a lot of my recipes with goat cheese because I personally like it better. But you’re welcome to use feta if you prefer. You can serve this hot or cold, but I like to heat it up…

    23 Jun 2015 | 11:30 am
    Sauvignon Blanc has recently become my new favorite white wine. I’m not sure what took me so long to fall in love with it, but it really is the perfect blend between sweet and sour. I discovered a gorgeous rainbow sangria photo on Pinterest by Gimmesomeoven (her pictures and recipes are amazing!) and I knew I had to grab a bottle of my new favorite wine and some fruit. There’s just something about a pretty, colorful drink… I concocted these beauties during my girls weekend in Palm Springs for another summer vaca poolside drink. YUM. I only mix the wine and the fruit, but…
  • Boozy Snow Cones

    Rachel K. Burke
    22 Jun 2015 | 8:20 pm
    I made boozy snow cones for the first time on Saturday. My friends and I went to Palm Springs for a girls weekend, and these were the perfect poolside drinks. At one point, my friend said to me “Is there even any alcohol in this?” to which I replied “A lot! Be careful.” She then proceeded to drink two more and was conked out for an afternoon nap by 4pm. They’re that good. (Just proceed with caution, since the sweetness tends to mask the booze.) And since they’re red, white and blue, they also make a great July 4th cocktail! Boozy Snow Cones   Save…
  • 3-Ingredient Vegan Butternut Squash Soup

    Rachel K. Burke
    13 Jun 2015 | 3:42 pm
    Did you know that butternut squash is technically a fruit? So are avocados, cucumbers and tomatoes. Crazy right? Not surprising though, since I love pretty much all fruit. Squash included. I’ll eat anything with butternut squash in it. Or on it. Ravioli, pizza, and of course, soup. I’m not a big soup lover (I tend to eat it only when I’m sick or in cold weather), but this butternut squash soup is TASTY. And it’s vegan friendly and super easy to make! Most butternut squash soup recipes instruct you to roast the squash in the oven, but I find steaming it much easier.
  • “Fried” Ice Cream Dessert (Vegan Friendly!)

    Rachel K. Burke
    11 Jun 2015 | 4:42 pm
    So… I cook a lot. As you can probably guess. I play around with different recipes every day to see which dishes I like the most. And I can honestly say, this “fried” ice cream is the best thing I’ve ever made. I made a whole pan of this for the first time last week, and it was gone by the end of day. It didn’t stand a chance. I have a feeling this is going to be a weekly ordeal. Ironically, the first time I ever tried actual fried ice cream, I was a teenager and ordered it from a local Chinese restaurant (and I loved it so much that I ordered it every time I…

    Its funny how cooking is sometimes like a science experiment.  You add a little bit of this and a little of that, then wait to see if its amazing or blows up in your face.  There were many experiments that took place in our kitchen before I got a handle on the spices and ingredients that I now use on a daily basis.  We live in such an international world though, that I’m always finding new and unfamiliar ingredients that I want to play with and the experiments begin again.  I never thought food would be my thing, but it is.  I love happy faces after a good meal, I love cooking and…
  • Warm Brussel Sprout & Broccoli Salad (paleo, vegan, & gluten free)

    Tima
    16 Jun 2015 | 12:21 pm
    I love salad!  Most of my lunches consist of some sort of salad, especially in the summer.  There is something about hot weather that makes me not want to eat piping hot food.  I don’t know what it is, but I prefer to have casseroles and things of that nature when it’s a little cooler. For lunch I’ll just throw together some veggies and have leftovers on the side or just have the salad.  A few weeks ago I had a fridge full of brussel sprouts and broccoli and needed to whip something up for lunch. I needed it to cook quickly, so I chopped everything up and threw it in…

    The first time I tasted Nutella, I was a kid at my aunt’s house.  Some relatives had smuggled some over from Germany and I thought it was the greatest thing ever created!  Now that I’m sort of grown, I don’t really appreciate all of the sugar and unnecessary ingredients.  I occasionally get the Justin’s brand which is on the healthier side and you can actually see the little pieces of hazelnuts in it. I wanted something sweet the other day, and suddenly started craving Nutella.  Since that’s not happening, I mixed a little cashew butter, honey, and cocoa…

    Along the Arabian Sea, to the South of Maharashtra, you’ll find India’s smallest state; Goa.  Goa is a tropical paradise known for its variety of fish and rich cuisine.  There is an abundance of coconut trees in Goa, so coconuts and coconut oil are used in many dishes along with an array of spices. I have yet to visit this wonderful place, but I adore fish curry and Goa is famous for theirs!   Goan fish curry is usually served on rice, and there are two kinds.  One type of fish curry has a tomato base and the other is made with coconut cream.  I haven’t been eating much…

It was used by Portuguese settlers who found it while exploring in Mozambique and fell in love with it as we have.  A few ethnic markets near us started carrying Piri Piri hot sauce from time to time and we would stock up whenever we saw it.  Once I tasted it, I realized what all the hullabaloo was about!  The flavor in that stuff is off the charts!  It is not your typical hot sauce.  Now…

  • Spicy Ginger Scallion Chicken Wings

    Joann
    27 Jun 2015 | 5:59 pm
    What? Another chicken wing recipe? Yes. I know I have a chicken wing addiction. But what if I tell you the recipe is pretty simple and does not require that you have to deep fry and get burned by popping hot oil? Or am I the only one that seems to have that bad luck? If you are not so much into spicy food, then feel free to omit the peppers from this recipe. You will still have a delicious wing either way. INGREDIENTS: 3-4 pounds chicken wings, cut in half at joint and wing tips discarded Kosher salt to season wings 6-8 scallions (green onions) trimmed and chopped into 1 inch pieces 2 inch…

Who can resist them? Even better, who can resist a chocolate chip cookie made with three types of chocolate and dried cherries? I’ll admit it. I can’t.  If I see them. I will eventually eat them. Maybe that’s why I generally only bake them during the holidays. You know what they say about having too much of a good thing?! (But don’t let my lack of self-control prevent you from making these…
  • Miso Chicken

    Joann
    16 May 2015 | 5:23 pm
    In the winter time I love to make all kinds of soup, especially miso soup. But now that it’s spring and the weather is getting warmer, a hot bowl of soup just doesn’t pique my interest. So what do I do with that tub of miso paste I still have in the refrigerator? Well, I always have chicken in my freezer so why not make miso chicken? And once I saw how easy this was, I was kicking myself for not trying this sooner.

    So, Lubbock does this really adorable thing where they let kids have their own little lemonade stand on a specific day called, “Lemonade Day.”It’s pretty adorable.Kids go and apply for a “small business loan” of $50.00 and proceed to make their lemonade stand, in an effort to teach them business smarts/financial responsibility.Well, I just really think that I should be allowed to participate because I would plunder those little miscreants with this recipe.Unless they’re your kids. In which case, they’re beautiful angels of the Lord. Watermelon and Sage Lemonade1 Small…

    Sometimes, you just need a fancy drink. And if we’re going to keep it “trill” around here (that's how kids these days say "real"), those times are often accompanied by your "person" being coated in ratty, old sweatpants that may or not say “PINK” on the rump.The problem here, if any, is that someone wearing this attire may not be super welcome at an establishment known for serving fancy drinks.Unless your idea of a fancy drink is anything off of the Hooter’s "cocktail" menu.I don’t judge! I’ll judge you behind your back with my Sunday School Class. Like the Southern woman I…

And then you immediately think, “NOT AGAIN” and you kinda hate it?Well you know that other thing, where you grow up and kinda love the aforementioned meal and realize your mom was cooking delicious food on a budget?Both of these above scenarios are “real things.” Just admit it.

    Gang, it is no secret that I love salad. It is also no secret that I should be much skinnier for how much I love salad.But we don’t really have to talk about that. #wineThis idea has been in a notepad on my iPhone for a long time.
