Spiced Pumpkin Roll Cake

Up until a couple of years ago I had never tried a Tres Leches Cake (which is “three milks” in Spanish). When a friend requested it for his birthday I spent a few hours scouring the internet comparing recipes before getting started. I was a little skeptical as I poured the milk mixture over the …

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.

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.
