Instead of being tart as one would expect from a grapefruit-based drink, this roasted margarita is slightly smokey, crisp, and just a little spicy (thank you habanero). It’s perfect for winter. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy!
Oh, hollandaise sauce, lovely and divine hollandaise sauce. Poured over poached eggs, grilled asparagus or just about anything…I will take it. I love the stuff!
Nothing quite embodies the spirit of Halloween like the Jack-o’-Lantern does. Creepy or funny, creative or classic, the carved gourd is more than just simple holiday decor. It’s also a symbol of fall harvest and that winter will soon be amongst us. But did you know, the pumpkin was not the original carved vegetable for this time of year–it was the turnip!
I always prefer a fresh fruit smoothie over the frozen fruit kind. This persimmon smoothie is no exception. With coconut milk, orange juice and ripe persimmon, this drink is earthy and sweet, spicy and just slightly tart. Oh, and it is vegan!
I don’t know about you but, for me, Thanksgiving is all about the side dishes! Here are a few of my gourmet favorites to make every year.
Mac n’ cheese is somewhat of a guilty pleasure, no? Like, it almost feels wrong to eat it once you no longer live in the college dormitory; I said almost! Well, gnocchi makes the dish feel a bit more “grown up” if you will.
Yes, it is as amazing as it sounds! Dripping with warm maple syrup, this decadent French toast dipped in pancake batter is bound to be a Sunday favorite.
If you love Thai Iced Tea, these homemade Thai Iced Tea Popsicles are the perfect summer treat. They’re easy to make and super delicious. And what better way to enjoy Thai Iced Tea all year long!
This vegetarian recipe uses curry to take traditional mashed potatoes to a new level. With yogurt, garlic and source cream, these taters are bound to be a favorite.
One of my favorite parts about recipe developing is the chance to use ingredients in unexpected ways (or to use unexpected ingredients). Okay, okay… I really like putting myself through the Quickfire challenge, à la Top Chef. So when I hung out with my eco-hero Ed Begley, Jr. and discovered he had a natural soda […]
Nothing quite like a messy burger, is there? What I enjoy most about veggie burgers is the endless possibility of combinations, like this spicy butternut squash & black bean burger recipe. Loaded with quinoa, fresh squash and a whole lot of flavor.
This Pomegranate and Limeade Popsicle is easy to make and simply gorgeous once frozen. What better way to enjoy fresh pomegranates all year long.
The great thing about simple syrup is you can flavor it with almost anything, like lavender. I recommend this syrup for ice teas, ice cream and lemonade but experiment with it. I am sure there are many ways to enjoy it.
I am always looking for fun and exciting ways to add heat to a meal. I put it in my sangrias, popsicles and pretty much everywhere. Well, sometimes I just want to go straight to the source.
Mac n Cheese just got better. Baked and swirling with Broccoli Pesto, this adult version of the classic recipe is a must try.
Okay, I love making popsicles, no surprise there. I’ve been wanting to make a wine popsicle for quite some time. But I wanted one that really showcased the wine. I love using wine as an ingredient but not just to dump it into some sangria with no consideration to the tasting notes. Well I finally found my wine.
