The Multiple Personalities of Coffee

Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed? Coffee lovers come in all shapes and sizes, and with good reason. It can be decadent, it can be straightforward, it can get the job done or provide a lovely afternoon respite. However you take it, let’s agree that coffee is awesome and you should love every […]

choco-pudding copy

I’ve been making this pudding for years, it’s definitely one of my favorite recipes! The best thing about this pudding is the surprise ingredient, avocado! It not only adds a richness and creaminess to this pudding, but it also provides a great serving of healthy fats. And, surprisingly, it’s one of those recipes everyone loves. All 3 of my kids can be extremely picky with their food choices; sometimes, it seems like they would be just fine living off of ice […]

mexican-rice

Have you ever wanted to create your own Mexican style rice at home? I bet you didn’t realize how easy it can be to make it from scratch. All you need are a few ingredients you probably already have in your pantry — to make a spicy version, you can also add in some chopped jalapeño. The secret is letting the rice absorb the seasoned tomato sauce while cooking, instead of stirring it into already cooked rice. Serve this Mexican rice as a […]

carbonara2 copy

Sometimes your inspiration comes from a great food mind like Mario Batali, or Mark Bittman, or Kenji Lopez-Alt, or Julia Child. And sometimes your inspiration comes from an anonymous commenter at the bottom of a recipe on the Internet. That happens to be the situation here, as in my endless quest for the perfect carbonara, I came across this somewhat zany, completely delicious variation from a person named “aburitoro” in the comments section of a Serious Eats carbonara recipe. I mean, aburitoro […]

While the original daiquiri is a shaken cocktail consisting of lime, rum, and sugar, most associate the drink with the super-sweet frozen strawberry mixture served from big machines. We’ve decided to riff on that version, but instead of using a mix loaded with corn syrup and artificial flavors, we’re using the good stuff: lime juice, frozen strawberries, a little natural sweetener, and, of course, rum! One sip of this fresh, breezy beach favorite and you’ll never go back to the […]

strawberry ice cream 5 copy

My kids LOVE ice cream, and I’m not quite sure where they got it from… 😉 On a weekly, sometimes daily, basis I get asked if they can have a cone or bowl of pink ice cream with sprinkles! As hard as it is to say no to their cute little faces, I know it’s not always the healthiest treat to have so often. Luckily, making your own ice cream is totally do-able; all you need is a blender and […]

When I’m craving a snack during the day to give me an energy boost, these coconut date bites are one of my favorite go-to healthy snacks. It’s so easy to whip a batch of these up in the Magic Bullet, just add in three main ingredients: walnuts, dates, and coconut oil. Then, shape them into balls, roll them in shredded coconut, and chill them in the refrigerator. That’s it! The dates are already very sweet, so you don’t need to add […]

cold-endive-salad-feat

What is endive? Is it an alien food only available in the French alps? Is it the cousin of radicchio? There’s Google for those questions, but I can tell you that endive tastes sweet, almost nutty, and yet a little bitter. This recipe, adapted from Gabrielle Hamilton of Prune via Food52, plays up another feature of endive: its incredible crispness. Soaking endive in crushed ice results in an icy, crunchy delight – totally satisfying and unusual as either an entrée or […]

cherry smoothie

It’s cherry season! This Memorial Day, I was so excited to see boxes of bright red cherries stacked up in the fruit section of my grocery store. I brought home a box and made this cherry pie smoothie, which includes fresh cherries, graham cracker crust, vanilla yogurt and milk. If you don’t have the energy to make a cherry pie (if you’ve made one before with fresh cherries, you know the amount of work involved in pitting the cherries one […]
