Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Tart

I Loooooove Thanksgiving dinner with a capitol “L”.  I love all the preparation of lists, grocery shopping and cooking with my mom in anticipation of the gluttonous once-a-year meal it yields. I love my mom’s sausage stuffing the most (and yes, it’s stuffing because she does stuff it into the bird). Here’s Thanksgiving tidbit #2 that you …

Maple Roasted Carrots

Thanksgiving tidbit #1 that you didn’t know about me: I hate cooked carrots.  Like, nope, no thank-you, I only like ’em raw.  I can remember being six years old and secretly palming my mom’s cooked carrots under the table to Brandy, the family golden retriever (sorry mom).   Leave it to Ina Garten to make cooked carrots not only palatable, but so downright …

Baked Doughnuts

Baked doughnuts are definitely not fried doughnuts but basically eating a doughnut for breakfast is like eating cake for breakfast so everyone still wins.  This particular doughnut is in fact called a cake doughnut, meaning there isn’t any yeast involved.  You can totally be eating doughnuts in roughly 30 minutes from beginning to end and …

Porky Rice Bowls

I feel like we have just gotten into the swing of all this heat and suddenly the temps are (sort of) dropping, the days are getting shorter and Baby P is this new upwardly mobile, vocal little human.  I feel like we have eaten a lot of awesome things this summer that I was lax on posting about, because, well, LIFE.  This refreshing, …

milk bar’s compost cookie

The Compost Cookie® is my first attempt at a Christina Tosi Milk Bar recipe, but it will not be my last.  I really want to try her birthday cake recipe (complete with funfetti sprinkles and birthday cake crumbs!) but figured I’d first cut my teeth on something as simple as her cookies.  Simple.  HA.    This recipe is …

quick pickled onions

The greatest gift I’ll give to you this Fourth is to tell you to save your leftover pickle jar juice and make quick pickled onions with it.  This is a recipe that isn’t even a recipe – it’s more of a recycle and repurpose with a re-mazing end result. You’ll need a saved jar of …

salt cured egg yolks

Waaaaay back sometime last year I can recall seeing a recipe for salt cured egg yolks in one of my magazines.  I remembered thinking; “I need to remember and try this!” and then promptly forgot all about it.  Fast forward to last week, where Lindsay posted this “how to” video on Instagram and I knew I needed …

cold-brewed strawberry orange tea

I’ve got strawberry fever and the cure is to put them in EVERYTHING! This fruit-infused tea is a refreshing and summery Memorial Day treat well worth the 24 hour wait! Cold-brewed fruit-infused tea is great for using up all the weird tea left behind by our visiting parents.  They buy different tea each visit yet never drink it because they …

fancy chocolate cake with raspberries

I’ve already had a pretty monumental month and it’s not even over yet!  Being the amazingly advanced baby he is, P cut a bunch of 2 year molars at 14 months old.  Sigh.  Let me tell you, the past month has been sleepless in Nashville, y’all.  Good news though, those suckers are now visible and we’ve been …
