I needed a last minute dessert. And by ‘last minute’ I mean dinner was served the dishes were cleaned and then it dawned on me, ‘I should serve a dessert’. Fruit compote to the rescue! This would be a good one to print or bookmark for those dessert 911 situations.Read More
I started making these at least 6 years ago to take to a boot camp class I helped instruct. They were the perfect little snack to refuel after a heart pumping workout. These delectable little sandwiches had fallen off my radar until I needed to make something that would be fun for kids, in their lunch box or after school.Read More
Now I may not be the foremost expert on Danish food but I do know how good their ebelskivers are! Ebelskivers are traditionally served as a dessert because they are pretty sweet. Think pancake, but better. Better because they are little round popper-shaped pancakes filled with your favorite jam, chocolate or fruit and they can be handheld. I love dunking them in maple syrup!Read More
Why eat potato when you can have Zucchini Skins!
I love it when my husband says ‘What are you making now?’ Then he proceeds to eat it all and ask me to make it again and finishes his thought by adding a ‘hua, that was actually really good.’😜
I’ve been working on a few healthy, Keto friendly recipes for an upcoming cooking class. I think these Zucchini Skins with cheese, bacon and sour cream will make the cutRead More
I pulled this one out of the vault. I started making this dip maybe 10 years ago, I had kind of forgotten about it until a friend asked me for the recipe last week. It got me thinking, you know, that was a really popular dessert dip. So I carved a little pumpkin as a serving dish and whipped up a batch.Read More
I love to spin at CycleBar, the cycle star instructors, the atmosphere, the heart-pumping rides and the amenities keep me coming back. Everyone who works there is so kind and genuine you immediately feel welcomed into the studio.
So when they accepted my offer to cater their brunch ride, I was pretty excited. This would be the first time I cooked for complete strangers. I’ve catered plenty of dinner and showers for friends and family but this was the first time I had the courage to put myself out there.
Does anyone not like berry cobbler? Not me, I love the stuff! In fact, I’ll take a berry dessert over a chocolate one any day. As far back as I can remember I’ve loved cobbler, there’s just something about it’s that good for the soul.Read More
These protein rich spinach muffins are helping my husband and me make good breakfast decisions this week. The feta makes a rich flavor, spinach and egg helps keep us full and the thyme gives it a nice fresh taste.Read More
My main course came together quick and easy today which allowed me to whip up these cutie-patuie rose tarts.
I love a fancy food that's not at all difficult to make and these pretty little appetizers/side/starters fit the bill. They take no time at all and only require 4 ingredients.
Summer is here and that means all you can eat, fresh at your finger tips, fruits and vegetables are in abundance. And if you're like me, you've been craving those fresh flavors since early spring, you really wanted those strawberries at the grocery but you also knew they weren't going to be their best, it just wasn't their time. But it is now!Read More
Sometimes I walk through the grocery store and buy completely random ingredients without reason or plan. Well, that was the case with these figs. Trader Joes gets me every time, they always have fresh, seasonal food that inspires me to get creative. So I proudly picked up the carton of figs and got to thinking. My 'recipe thinking' usually happens in the kitchen while opening and closing the fridge and pantry and looking around.Read More
This recipe comes from one of my favorite bloggers and cookbook authors: Mimi Thorisson, I highly recommend perusing her blog, Manger, and I dare you to not fall in love with the dreamy images of a perfect little town and this beautiful family living in southern France. All the photographs you see on the blog were taken by Mimi's husband, it's truly storytelling at it's best. Their story, the food, the blog, the cookbooks... c'est magnifique!Read More
