Lavender Smoothie

There are certain flavors that I love in just about anything. Cardamom, citrus, and rosemary are a few, but my husband knows that if we come across anything with lavender, I’m probably going to want to try it, especially if it’s in something you may not normally see it, like caramel sauce or beer (there’s [...]

Butternut Squash Ravioli with Oregano Hazelnut Pesto

I use Evernote to keep track of everything, especially recipes. I am constantly clipping recipes to try, recipes for inspiration, or just because the photos look good. Sometimes I make them, sometimes I go back and look at them again and again, and sometimes they get filed away to never been seen again. While recently [...]

Lemon with Beet Juice

Magical Beet Smoothie

I love vegetables, and there are few that I simply don’t like. Brussels sprouts aren’t amongst my favorites, but if they are cooked the right way, I will eat and even enjoy them. (Hint: not steamed to a mushy, sulfury mess!) Beets, however, are one that I can’t seem to enjoy no matter how they [...]

Cast Iron Skillet Banana Cake

Cast Iron Skillet Banana Cake

I always buy bananas when I go to the grocery store. I usually put them in smoothies, but sometimes I buy more than I can use and they start turning brown on me. Anyone who’s ever bought bananas knows that once they’re brown, you better use them because the next day they’ll be mushy and [...]

Paneer

Saag Paneer

I’ve been on an Indian food kick lately. After trying a few different Indian restaurants in town, I wondered why I couldn’t just make my own. It turns out that I can. It’s pretty easy, inexpensive, and so good! I like most everything I’ve had, but my favorite is saag paneer. It’s basically just a [...]

Poppy and Sesame Seed Crackers

Crackers are a favorite snack of mine, but they’re expensive. Luckily, they’re pretty easy to make. This recipe is simple, uses ingredients you already have on hand, and is easily customizable. You can use whole wheat flour for a healthier version, or top it with anything you’d like. Dried herbs, chili flakes, or cracked black [...]

Rosemary Crackers

Gluten Free Rosemary Crackers

I love crackers. Eaten plain, with a cheese plate, or in a soup. I went through a phase where I was buying raw crackers at Whole Foods. Made of natural ingredients, they are made with things like raw nuts, seeds, and vegetables. Not quite as crispy as some crackers, they are different, but good different. [...]

Double Chocolate Buttermilk Biscuits

I love biscuits. Tender and flaky, with a melt in your mouth texture; they make the best addition to breakfasts and brunch. They’re also easy to make, and come together much faster than rolls or bread. I also love chocolate, specifically cocoa powder. It’s got a deep rich chocolatey flavor that is easy to use [...]

The Best Homemade Veggie Burgers

I love veggie burgers, but it can be hard to find a good one. The frozen kind are okay in a pinch, but they’re loaded with sodium and try too hard to mimic the texture and taste of meat. I’m not really interested in a salty, processed soy burger. I’ve attempted to make them many [...]
