Caramel Apple Cider

Nothing says fall like apple cider. I love curling up with a book in my favorite chair with a hot, steamy mug apple cider spiked with homemade caramel and cinnamon. It also makes a great warm drink for holiday parties. Caramel Apple Cider 1 cup apple cider 1 teaspoon caramel sauce 1 cinnamon stick Warm … Continue reading »

Barbeque Pulled Chicken Sandwich

I made so much barbeque chicken, that I inevitably had a little leftover and decided that I wanted to make some pulled chicken with it. I had some tasty little brioche sliders leftover from burgers, and I added on some homemade pickles for a little crunch. I used some more of the homemade BBQ sauce … Continue reading »

BBQ Chicken and Homemade Barbeque Sauce

I found it surprisingly hard to take pictures of BBQ chicken. For some reason, chicken just doesn’t seem that photogenic. Plus, it took a lot of willpower to keep myself from eating it immediately. If you’ve never made your own BBQ sauce, you should try it next weekend. It’s so much better than bottled, and … Continue reading »

Lentil Meatballs with Lemon Pesto

I have a lot of meatballs on here by now: classic spaghetti and meatballs, tuna meatballs, and chicken meatballs, and I thought it was time for vegetarian meatballs. These were inspired by a couple different recipes I saw across the blogosphere and they disappeared so quickly that I will have to make them again. They’re … Continue reading »

Linguine Bolognese

I’m not a big fan of going out for Valentine’s Day because restaurants typically overcharge and it feels a little forced. Plus, my favorite evenings are ones spent at home over a delicious meal– why do something different? I see Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to be reminded how good we have it every other … Continue reading »

Avocado Pesto

I won a box of avocados from Serious Eats a couple weeks ago, and I’ve been working on some recipes with them. This avocado pesto worked well with this whole wheat fresh pasta, and also as a topping for some deliciously sweet scallops from the farmers market. The avocado gives it a creaminess and richness … Continue reading »

Salmon with Pepita and Kale Pesto

If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting as much this week, it’s because I’m trying out the Bon Appetit Food Lover’s Cleanse.┬áIt seemed like a good idea to try eating healthy for a couple weeks, as we tend to do this time of year. I’ve had a lot of oatmeal, muesli, and pumpkin … Continue reading »

Kathy’s Brandy Cranberry Sauce

  This is an old family recipe that I’ve had at Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. It’s also my favorite part of Thanksgiving, so much so that I always make extra now that I’m making it myself. It keeps for months because of the sugar and it’s amazing on chicken, in sandwiches, … Continue reading »

Pesto, a summer favorite!

Pesto is just so summery. It’s one of the easiest and quickest things to make, but it’s just perfect. I make it in big batches in the spring and summer when they have tons of basil at the green market. I put it in plastic containers, cover the top with a layer of olive oil … Continue reading »
