Mango-Carrot Smoothie

Happy new year! I can’t believe how fast 2014 flew by. I had such a great year and I hope you did too. I traveled — a lot. Asheville, NC, San Diego, Madison, WI/Chicago, Italy, Boston, a Midwest Thanksgiving roadtrip, Tampa, and finally Hawaii. I am so lucky that I got these opportunities to travel […]

Watermelon-Jalapeno Daiquiri

It’s Friday. You’ve had a long week. You deserve a cocktail. This one is perfect for a late summer evening. The watermelon is cool and crisp, yet the jalapeno warms your throat — and the booze warms you from the inside. Of course, if you’ve got tequila you can turn this into a margarita. Experimentation […]

Peach Guacamole

It is no secret that I looooove guac. It was one of my major cravings as soon as I got home from Italy. I make it at least once a week, and I’m not embarrassed to oh-so-subtly eat every last bit out of the bowl. Usually I reserve this sort of behavior for when I’m […]

Apple-Cranberry Deep Dish Pie

What better way to usher in Fall than with an apple-cranberry pie? It’s a little sweet, a little tart, a lot of crust, and a TON of fruit. It’s a nice take on a classic…and also, Scott’s mom makes the best apple pies ever so I don’t want to overstep my bounds here. But I […]

Apple-Olive Oil Cake

I got a bit of a craving to bake something today, and with about 20 pounds of apples to go through still, I needed a recipe that called for more than 1 apple. Unfortunately, so many recipes uses fruit as an afterthought or a flavoring, rather than the star ingredient. Honestly, all too often sugar […]

Apple Slaw

So I used to think I didn’t like cole slaw. You know, that little tub of mostly white stuff, coated in mayo, that tends to come in a styrofoam cup? Watery, limp cabbage and carrots and very little flavor to speak of. I’ll pass. Well, turns out I love cabbage.┬áIt’s versatile and neutral and crunchy. […]

Roasted Peach Ice Cream

Nothing says summer like ice cream. Especially ice cream made from fresh ripe fruit. Store-bought ice cream is filled with scary chemicals and ridiculous amounts of sugar. And has anyone else noticed that ice cream has gotten ridiculously expensive? I mean, for the amount you pay for a pint of premium ice cream, you can […]

Raspberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Pops

It is still Popsicle Madness at our house! It is hot hot hot here and nothing cools ya off like an icy fruity treat! And then I thought, well how bad could an ice cream bar be? Turns out, not bad at all! Pretty darn delicious, actually. For some reason I’ve been really in the […]

Strawberry-Basil Popsicles

Popsicles are the new cupcakes. You heard it here first, folks! Not only are they waaaaaay easier, they are amazingly refreshing on a hot summer day. And they don’t go stale. And you don’t have to argue about Team Cake vs. Team Icing. Everyone’s on Team Popsicle. I have made two batches now and I […]
