Double-Vanilla Marshmallow Cut-Outs

It’s almost Valentine’s day, which means the internet is awash with red and pink and heart-shaped everything. Don’t worry, it’s only temporary, soon enough it’ll be all 50 shades of green up in here...

Orange Blossom Almond Cream Tart for Two

It’s funny, really… just a few months ago I was lamenting the lack of chocolate in traditional Thanksgiving desserts, and downright demanding decadent alternatives. And now, in the midst of what may be the...

Orange Marmalade Skillet Roasted Chicken Breasts

About this time of year, pretty much every year without fail, I usually go a little nuts in the produce section, buying up all the citrus without plan or abandon. A lot goes into...

Nashville Eats & Treats: Sweet Spots Edition

After brunch, dessert is quite possibly the most important meal of the day (though you could certainly argue the opposite, too, and I’d probably agree with you). I know when I’m traveling I like...

Soy Sauce Sweet Potato Noodles

I caved. I finally got a spiralizer. I resisted for a long time, but a recent trip to KitchenAid® headquarters in Chicago changed my mind. Now, let’s be clear, I’m not going paleo. I’m...

Beyond the Kitchen: Get Lost (in a book) Edition

I read 30 books last year, meeting my goal with a few hours to spare (what, doesn’t everyone sit and read on New Year’s Eve?) Most of them were 3 and 4 star books,...

Greek Turkey Tacos

Am I the only one who finds pre-packaged ground turkey kind of sketchy? There’s a weird flavor in there that throws me off. It’s the reason I haven’t bought ground turkey (or chicken for...

Spicy Veggie Sushi Bowls

Happy New Year, everyone! If you’re like me you probably ate one (or two…) too many cookies over the past few months, and maybe you’re trying to make up for it by eating a...
