Baking Bootcamp: Whole Wheat Oatmeal Honey Bread

Sometimes I can’t believe the fun we get to have here!  All the biscuits, all the cookies, and all in the name of work!

Hearts of Palm Fries with lemon and jalapeño

 Txhe old dip-and-fry.  It’s like the bait-and switch but much less tricky and much more delicious.   I’ll drip and fry just about anything.

The Sparkle Chain

The kitchen is my happy place, my photography studio, my comfort zone, my snack bar, and my office.  It’s where I find the best treats and really, the biggest messes.

Quick and Dirty Chocolate Espresso Cinnamon Rolls

How can I do the least amount of work, but still get the most amount of cinnamon rolls into my mouth?

Let It Be Sunday

Hello friends and Happy Sunday! I hope you’re entering the end of January feeling happy and productive, still in your January intentions and resolutions.

Burnt Orange Salty Caramel Sauce

What are you supposed to do with a no good, very bad toothache?  Warm salt water rinse?  An emergency visit to the dentist?

Sausage and Mushroom Risotto

As I move through the days, the months, the year, the seasons, I’ve noticed that my body always tells me what I need.

Winter Lemonade with ginger and cloves

Good morning, Monday.  Good morning, January.  Good morning, thick socks.  Good morning, extra-hot tea.

Let It Be Sunday

Hello my friends! If you follow me on Instagram you might know that I’ve been in the ocean for the past week, on a cruise ship, eating all the things and swimming in Caribbean waters.

All-The-Blueberries Buttermilk Waffles

I was trying to do a thing. A thing with waffles, cinnamon, sugar, and a blow torch. The blow torch (perhaps not surprisingly) is where things went wrong.

Lazy Mary’s Citrus Tart

 If I find the word ‘lazy’ in the title of a recipe, it’s just… I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief.

Let It Be Sunday

Hello, my dear-hearts.   It’s Sunday.  It’s carnival season.  It’s time to eat all of the King Cakes.

Whole Roasted Onions

  Here’s how this is going to go down, my friends:  whole roasted sweet yellow onions, roasted with olive oil and butter, roasted with rosemary, roasted whole, roasted to sweet submission.

Homemade Kitchen Hand Scrub and a little kitchen sparkle

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  Kitchen towel tucked into the belt loop of my jeans, forearms covered in a mysterious amount of flour, scraps of crust on the kitchen table dangerously close to my camera and laptop, and dishes in the sink… always with dishes in the sink.

Winter Cocktail Hour: Grapefruit Margaritas and Vanilla Sugar Daquiris

I‘m going to play in the sun.  Obnoxious considering I don’t live in an extra-chilly, snow-covered Winterland.

Magic Mineral Broth

You know what we’re into these days? You know what the latest food trend is? Not cupcakes. Not red velvet this and that.

The Best of Intentions for 2015

Can I tell you one of my personal truths?  The new year… the box marked January 1st on my calendar, makes me all sorts of nervous.

All The Citrus and Some Of The Greens Salad

I take my salads very seriously. Similarly, I take my omelettes, sandwiches and daiquiris with equal reverence.

Let It Be Monday

Let’s take it slow this last week of the year.  We have a lot to absorb and a future to dream.  Where have you been this year?

Grapefruit White Chocolate Brown Butter Cookies

Well, hello. Hi. How are you? Glad tidings. Happy Holidays. I like your hair. Are you doing all of the lovely winter things?
