Blood Orange Chocolate Buttermilk Scones

Years ago, I worked in a bakery that made the best chocolate buttermilk scones. They were tender and crunchy and craggy. The buttermilk gave them a tangy flavor that in my mind is better than heavy cream. And chocolate? Yes, please. In addition to chocolate, I’m a big fan of citrus flavors, so orange chocolate [...]

Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I’m not the biggest cauliflower fan, but I recently got a head in my Imperfect Foods box. I don’t hate it, but it’s not something I’ll go out of my way for. Unless it’s coated in hot sauce, like this recipe for baked buffalo cauliflower bites. Truth is, I’ve never had anything coated in hot [...]

Homemade Hot Honey

Hot honey is not a new thing at this point; it’s on pizza’s everywhere these days, and you can even buy it at most local grocery stores. But how about homemade hot honey? If you’ve never had it, it’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. It’s a great condiment to have on hand if [...]

Crispy Curried Chickpeas

Curried chickpeas sound like something you’ve had before. But not this way. Eating healthy can be a drag sometimes, but it helps if you have a few super healthy foods that you love. Especially if those foods are easy to turn into something that seems unhealthy. These chickpeas are not the boring ones you see [...]

Cherry and Sesame Granola

I love granola. On yogurt. On oatmeal (yes, sounds weird, but try it!) Or on its own. Sometimes I buy it. But sometimes I make it because I get flavor combos in my head that I can’t find at the store. Like this one. Tart cherries and toasty sesame seeds. Other than those, you can use [...]

Chocolate Berry Frozen Yogurt Bark

I spend a lot of time during the start of a new year trying to come up with creative, healthy snack ideas. Because I love snacks,  but don’t get any satisfaction crunching carrots and celery, no matter what you dip them in. This recipe was inspired from a combination of all my favorite snacks — yogurt, [...]

Best Oven Baked Fries

Oven baked fries are a tough one. I’ve made them lots of times, because fries are a satisfying side dish and sometimes you just don’t want to (or these days, can’t) go out to get them. And deep frying in the house is rarely a thing that’s worth the trouble. So I’ve been trying to perfect [...]

Garlic Herb Potato Skins

Groceries have been kind of all over the place lately, both when it comes to price and availability of certain things. When your job relies on a lot of grocery shopping, this makes life difficult. While things have calmed down a bit for now, a couple weeks ago I saw potatoes on sale, and picked [...]

Gluten-Free Chickpea Flatbread

Sometimes getting dinner on the table is rough. I know every night should be something delicious and elaborate, but that’s not always how life works, especially right now. I’m not gonna lie — sometimes a good cheese plate is my dinner. It usually requires no cooking, and I almost always have various components in my [...]
