Tahini Brownies

Ok. So these brownies are amazing, but what I really like them is how nicely they slice. Does anyone else get irrationally irritated when you’re trying to slice the brownies and the cakey part keeps sticking to your dang knife so that you keep having to clean the KNIFE?! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Even if you…

Save (or make) that Peanut Sauce, Salad

This is really great for oozing out every ounce of flavor and use from your favorite peanut sauce; either from takeout or a peanut sauce you make yourself! It also adds a great protein punch to your salad, while keeping it vegetarian. You can also make your own peanut sauce, or use the one I…

One Pot Ginger Chicken + Rice with Peanut Sauce

This is a fabulous, inexpensive, flavorful recipe that uses ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen and pantry. Makes it perfect during this time of quarantine and uncertainty. There’s no doubt quarantine is hard, but we can do hard things! Cooking is great for my mental health and anxiety and also gives me a…

Dark Chocolate PB Raspberry Cups

You really need to treat.yo.self every once in a while. More than every once in a while in fact. But especially now while we are all quarantined, or self isolating trying not to get the Coronavirus (or any other ailment that could land us in a dr office…). And there definitely could be worse ways…

Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread

I like dense bread and I cannot lie! At least when it’s a dessert bread. I do prefer my French bread nice and fluffy, but if I’m going to have a slice of banana bread (ahem, with butter), I want it to be nutrient dense with a dense texture. I’ve done this in the past…

Host A Paint and Pour

Or I think some people call them Sip an Paints? Either way, what’s not to love about a little wine mixed with a little painting?! I had heard of these before and seen the photos of even my non artistic friends coming home with these really great canvases they painted, while drinking with friends, given a…

Easy Entertaining Recipes  … and ideas if you need to pull a quick switch from brunch to evening apps because you’ve double booked yourself with hosting event 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️ Ah Saturdays. Aren’t those supposed to be relaxing “breaks” from the week? I thought so, until I found myself there one Saturday with 2 big events to…

Cauli Rice Pilaf

Gosh was this yummy! Tasty, so adaptable and easy to cook. Huge win for me. Another Bon Apetit original that I feel I must share, especially since the kiddos loved it too! I do think golden raisins and toasted almonds were the best, but you can make it with whichever nuts and dried fruits you…

Chicken Lentil Soup with Jammy Onions

I mean. Can you ever have enough Jammy Onions?! I’m not sure. At least flavor wise. Too much miiiiight give you some tummy troubles, but it just might be worth it… Of course this is another Bon Appetite Recipe. I just can’t help myself. When their magazine comes I want to make all the things….

Banana Avocado Toast

Oh my sweet mercy. Move over peanut butter banana toast, there’s a new chief in town. I was super skeptical when I first saw this on food52, tucked away under Kristen Miglorious’ Genius Recipes. And she found this from Apollonia Poilâne’s new book, Poilane. So naturally. I had to make it. Try it. Fall in…
