Chocolate Eclair Icebox Cake

When I was living in Wisconsin I stopped by the Viroqua Food Coop on a very regular basis to get a quick meal from the hot bar. One of my favorite desserts was their individually sized Chocolate Eclair Cake, and I could almost always find a reason to justify why I deserved this treat. I haven’t been …

Do you have any big plans for the 4th of July? I’m so looking forward to the long weekend and spending some time outside enjoying the summer weather. I also have a few BBQs lined up and am excited to bring along this delicious no-bake dessert. Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, but it …

Tres Leches 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. 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 …
