Peanut Butter and Honey Grassmilk Yogurt Dip

I almost always find myself coming home from the grocery store with a big bag of Honeycrisp apples. Sometimes I’ll eat them plain, but more often than not I end up dipping them in peanut butter for an afternoon snack. Last week I was ready for something a little different than my standard apple + …

Russian Honey Cake with Macerated Blackberries

As part of my on-going effort to buy more food from local sources I try to stop by the local farmers market most weekends. On a recent trip I was excited to find a vendor who had some delicious honey for sale. This is a great time of year to be thinking of ways we …

Tomato Soup and Fancy Grilled Cheese

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a comfort food pairing that I can get behind at any time of year. This creamy tomato basil soup is so delicious. You know how tomato soup can sometimes have that bitter ‘bite’ to it? This soup uses the natural sweetness of carrots to counteract that bitterness. I love both …

Strawberry Lemon Cream Pie

I made this Strawberry Lemon Cream Pie for Easter last weekend and it was so wonderful. I’m not sure how any dessert could feel more like spring than this one. The lemon filling is light and creamy with a bright lemon flavor that is pretty much how I would imagine sunshine tasting. Combine that with some …

Leek, Swiss Chard, and Parmesan Quiche

I make quiche on a pretty regular basis. As a vegetarian I lean heavily on eggs to add protein to my diet, and quiche is such a delicious, easy, and portable way to have a healthy meal. Usually I end up doing an ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ style of quiche where I throw in …

Blueberry Croissant Puff

If I had to pick a favorite meal to make for family, breakfast would be my pick hands down. When we have big family gatherings the dinners can sometimes get a little stressful. It’s a lot of work to get a holiday dinner on the table and even with my easy going family, I know …

Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Are you watching basketball this week? I made a bracket which has pretty much been a disaster. I had a good first day and it’s all been downhill from there. Luckily the actual sports watching has never been super important to me – I’m all about the food! I know a lot of people who …

Cheesy Broccoli Soup

This time of year I’m all about cozy comfort foods that won’t derail my goals to get healthier in the new year. Soup is one of my favorite dishes to make in the winter, not only is it warm and filling, but it also re-heats well. I love that I can spend a little bit …

Eggnog Bread Pudding

Eggnog is one of my favorite treats around the holidays. I start watching for it to hit the shelves in October and am always just a little too excited when I’m finally able to purchase my first carton. I was finally, finally, able buy some eggnog last weekend and immediately started debating if I should just …

Bacon, Jalapeno & Cheddar Cheese Ball

On any given Saturday afternoon during football season I can usually be found with a big group of friends, gathering to watch our local college football team. The host is a master on the grill, and food is never (ever, ever) in short supply. My knowledge, and to be honest, interest, in football is limited, …
