If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The recipe for the cake in this Upside Down Fig Cake is from my Upside Down Apricot Snacking Cake.

Pumpkin Chai Muffins

These muffins are a play on my oh-so-favorite one bowl banana muffins. It’s become my go-to for any muffin recipe because it has the perfect balance of being sweet, without loads of sugar.

This dinner hits the nail on the head on all fronts: It works for leftovers. It’s a one pot meal and simple to make (about an hour, but most of that is simmering time) It’s full of veggies. It’s a crowd pleaser- who doesn’t like a) tortellini and b) tomato? I tend to like my […]

Caramelized Brussels Salad with Farro, Apples & Parmesan

Caramelized Brussels Salad with Farro, Apples & Parmesan

Ironically I don’t have many pictures of salads with apples, although they are one of my favorite ingredients in salads. Seriously- They were probably in about 80% of my salads since the fall. To not get too bored, I often play around with the way I cut them (diced, sliced, julienned, spiralized). In particular I […]

This dish came about on a whim- I was looking for a way to use leftover hoisin beef. While these flavors are unconventional, everything just works.

Cozy Miso Ramen

Cozy Miso Ramen

Super excited about this one- Matt had been craving ramen (and really, who isn’t given how cold it is right now) and we had just roasted a whole chicken, so I was ready to make some homemade stock. My goal was to minimize steps by combining both the step to make the chicken stock with […]

I originally began this recipe in September, knowing that some time would be needed to perfect these before Thanksgiving.

Not only do these not require much […]
