Brussels sprout salad

There is a restaurant near my house (if you are local you will know Pacific Table ) that makes the best, BEST, Brussels sprout salad. I made my own version at home, and while it pales in comparison, was my favorite meal this week. I’m pretty sure there is no...

Pulled BBQ Pork

This pulled BBQ pork is super easy, super versatile and will make your house smell amazing all day. All you have to do is slow-cook it in the oven for up to 12 hours and I do it overnight specifically so I’ll have weird meat dreams and wake up...

Tangy White Bean Salad

This bean salad is exactly what a summer barbecue or cookout needs. It’s good warm or cold, packs creaminess from the white beans, crunch and sharpness from the onion and bell pepper, and flavors galore. The “secret” ingredient is horseradish, though this salad wouldn’t be the same without the...

Lemon Upside-Down Cake

Lemon might be the most versatile flavor of all time, which is why I altered my citrus upside down cake to be more lemon-forward and created this lemon upside-down cake. I love all citrus — blood oranges, lemons, Meyer lemons, Cara Cara oranges, juicy limes, raspberry oranges (which are...

Easy Shepherd’s Pie

This easy Shepherd’s Pie recipe is one of our favorite dinners. It doesn’t take long to make, it’s filling, and it’s healthy. I don’t use the traditional flour thickener, but I do add a bit of cream to thicken the filling. If you have extra herbs experiment with them...

Frittata with broccoli and pancetta

A frittata is maybe the easiest way to make a fancy breakfast. They are so easy and so good. Recently I discovered that you can cook a frittata in one pan too, which is a game changer over here (I’m all about less cleanup). I use a seasoned cast...

Easy Chili with Cocoa

Chocolate is amazing. It has antioxidant properties and can reduce inflammation, among other health benefits. But most of all, it tastes good — even in savory dishes like chili. This easy chili with cocoa is no exception. Just two tablespoons of regular cocoa powder transforms a normal stew into...

Orange Upside-Down Cake

If you’ve followed this blog for long, you know I’m obsessed with citrus. I’ve wanted to create a winter citrus cake for awhile, and this orange upside-down cake proves it. I love citrus. At night if I’m making a cocktail, more often than not it has a whole lemon...

Corn Dog Bites (Gluten-Free)

Corn dog bites are an easy, fun way to bring certain events home if you can’t get out or if you just want to feel like you’re having fair-food. If you live in Fort Worth you know that the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo started this weekend. It...

Meatball Soup with Asian Flavors and Bok Choy

Meatball soup with asian flavors and bok choy is an easy, customizable winter meal that is filling, healthy and flavorful. If you’ve followed me for long you know I love soups. Chicken soup, soups with Italian flavors, pumpkin soup and several varieties of vegetable soups have populated my Instagram...

Gluten-free Tuscan Peasant Soup with Sausage

When my sister-in-law first gifted me a copy of Marcella Hazan’s “Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking” for my birthday, I spent a week of reading it cover to cover. It’s an amazing cookbook, especially if you are a cookbook fangirl like I am. One recipe stuck out to me...

Gluten-free cinnamon scones

It’s rare that I come up with a recipe in the pastry or bread category that comes out perfect the first time. Now, this is a pretty basic gluten-free cinnamon scones recipe, but I altered the ratios of butter, cream and yogurt and played with the spices and extracts...
