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 »

Faux Milanos

I found this recipe on Serious Eats and I couldn’t wait to try it because I love milanos. I know, they’re probably not that good for you and have tons of things in them that I can’t pronounce, but I love them. And that’s even more reason to try this recipe. It was also the … Continue reading »

Strawberry Rhubarb Fool

I’m pretty sure my favorite pie of all-time is strawberry rhubarb, but it’s hard to choose. Sometimes though, I just don’t want to go to the trouble of making dough and rolling it out. This was one of those days. And then I remembered a blackberry fool recipe I saw somewhere and thought I would … Continue reading »

Pomegranate Vanilla Panna Cotta

I’m a big fan of panna cotta– you can make it ahead, you don’t have to bake it, and it’s creamy and delicious. There’s an infinite variety of ways you can make it, and this version layers a vanilla bean panna cotta with a pomegranate gelatin (homemade jello, of you will). The original recipe I … Continue reading »

Parsnip Puree

I recently realized that I actually really like parsnips. Who knew? I’ve pretty much only been doing this with them though. But it’s a great fall recipe and it can be made into a really elegant dinner with some seared scallops or some steak slices on top. I usually make a healthier version of this … Continue reading »

Chicken with Porcini Mushrooms

This was a quick weeknight recipe that I created to use what little was left in the pantry. It’s a little Italian like a chicken cacciatore, a little French with the vermouth and cream, definitely delicious. It ended up being my favorite dinner of the week. And with only boneless chicken breasts, it cooks really … Continue reading »

Plum Tart

It’s peak stone fruit season, so I came home from the farmers market with peaches, nectarines, and plums. The plums were already ripe so I immediately set to work on a tart. I made some delicious sherbet with the peaches and nectarines, as well. But now for the plum tart. I intended to leave a … Continue reading »

Lavender and Meyer Lemon Low-Fat Ice Cream

I’m still working out the kinks in my ice cream maker (I suspect I bought a slightly broken one, cause it doesn’t always freeze my ice cream), however, this one came out pretty well. The last ice cream I made was the David Lebovitz olive oil ice cream as this blogger recreates, however it came out … Continue reading »

Linguine with Bacon, Peas and Mint 1/2 box linguine 3 strips bacon, chopped (or substitute pancetta, guanciale, or your preferred pork product…) 1 cups peas … Continue reading »
