Butternut Squash Soup with Truffle Oil

Butternut Squash Soup with Truffle Oil

 There isn’t a squash  I love more than the beautiful butternut squash.

Butternut has that perfect silky texture after being cooked. Its flesh is a gorgeous shade […]

Crunchy, Sweet, and Tangy Bread and Butter Pickles

Crunchy, Sweet, and Tangy Bread and Butter Pickles

I love bread and butter pickles. That sweet tangy crunch layered into burgers, diced in tunafish sandwiches, or just grabbed straight out of the jar and snacked on.

Roasted Carrots with Mint Lemon Dressing

Roasted Carrots with Mint Lemon Dressing

Last week we had a heat wave that lasted five days of hot, dry, Santa-Ana windy weather above 95 degrees. We were dying over here, so to make it bearable we ate lots of blackberry mojito pops. That’s how to cool down and freshen spirits in style! But mojito pops wasn’t all that we nourished […]

One Pot Stovetop Creamy Kale Mac and Cheese

Yes, adding kale can justify mac and cheese being “healthier”, can’t it? Please say yes because that’s what my conscience was telling me when I wanted to combine two of my top 25 foods all in one pot. Perhaps I’m making up lost time as a kid when all I wanted to eat was mac […]
