Black Bean Pumpkin Plantain Enchiladas

It’s a mouthful of deliciousness. A little spicy. A little savory. A little sweet. A little creamy. A little Tex-Mex. A lotta Delicious. This is most definitely Minimalist Baker inspired! I had made her Black Bean Plantain enchiladas and absolutely fell in love! So I set out to make them again and had zero cashews…

Spring Rolls!

So it’s finally feeling spring(y) up here in the Hudson River Valley of NY, so I decided I should probably make some Spring Rolls! My husband also loves them and I had been BOMBING on dinner and figured I should probably redeem myself. Sometimes my blog fails I try and disguise my food blog fails…

Carrot Top Pesto

No, it doesn’t have red hair, it’s literally made of the green fronds atop a carrot bunch. Or maybe the bottoms depending on how you look at it… Spent a nice spring afternoon touring the Farm at Stone Barns with the kiddos and was blown away by what they are doing there! Farmers, agriculturalists and…

Coconut Flour Shortbread Date Caramel Twix Bars

Annnnd then I snapped my fingers and POOF. Turned these ingredients: Into… Twix Bars! Well maybe it wasn’t THAT easy, but it wasn’t bad I promise. Seems daunting. First shortbread. Then a caramel. And THEN a chocolate topping. Uughhh. But it goes by quick. And you can multi task. Like while the shortbread is baking,…

“The Collard is the New Tortilla”… Burrito

I’m tellin ya. It’s true. Found these enormous fresh Collards at the Farmers Market and immediately thought “burritos!” Weird, I know, but I’m weird so it makes sense. I didn’t actually even make these burritos for dinner. I stuffed them full of other leftovers and ate on them throughout the week. They are these perfect…

Sourdough Adventures

Best advice. Just start. Sourdough is an intimidating thing and if you start thinking about and listing all the steps in your head, you won’t do it. It’s a lot, but it’s worth it and you can do most steps while you’re doing other things. There’s a lot of passive time. You either have to…

Whole Roasted Chicken

Whole chickens are funny. It’s sounds so simple to cook, but they’re also kind of intimidating! At least they were for me. It took me a while before I felt like I was able to do this. I do this old school, in a Dutch oven. I’m sure an instant pot or a crock pot…

Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Wondering what to do with those pumpkin guts (as my kids call them)? Well look no further. Regular pumpkin guts, i.e. those stringy mushy bits that scoop out with the seeds makes for a really yummy soup. I promise. Maybe it’ll sound yummier if I stopped saying “guts”🤣. Pulp. We’ll call it pulp. Side note:…

Getting Sick?

Medicine and antibiotics do not heal your body. Your body heals your body. Try these before reaching for the cough syrup, they’re easy to incorporate, it can’t hurt and usually ends up helping your bodies natural ability to heal itself!

Moist, Tender, White Wine Braised Thick Cut Pork Chops

I did it. I actually used “moist” in a recipe title. Ewww. Ha! And it was a LONG title, but I bet you still cringed… However, recipe is definitely not something you’ll cringe at if you make it! It is one of our absolute favorite dishes and everyone in my family is excited when I…
