Strawberry Jalapeño and Strawberry Basil Jam

In the past four weeks I’ve picked over 15 pounds of strawberries, nearly three gallons of ruby red goodness. From two different farms on two different mornings. I’ve made preserves and ice cream, salads...

June Kitchen Challenge: Marzipan

I’ve lamented before on the lack of good quality marzipan here in the US. Usually I end up buying almond paste and thickening it as needed, because it actually tastes like almond. The marzipan...

Apricots & Cream Thumbprint Scones

Scones are often, for lack of a better term, boring. And, unfortunately, there are a lot of bad scones out there. Dry, flavorless, chalky things that you can’t swallow without submersing them in coffee...

Strawberry Guacamole

It started as a discussion trying to decide what kind of jam I wanted to make with all those strawberries. My friend Michelle asked if avocado strawberry jam was a thing. While I don’t...

Dark Chocolate Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry season snuck up on me this year. In a good way. We’ve been so busy that I feel like my mind is a few months behind my body. I’m having a hard time...

Homemade French Fries with Fresh Garlic and Dill (and a Haute Dogs Giveaway!)

April Kitchen Challenge Results: Eclairs

The very definition of an epic mess is when you’re left cleaning chocolate from between your toes. And yes, I probably should have expected that when I set out to recreate my eclair doodle...

Homemade Potato Chips with Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce

It’s surprising, really, that I’ve never made homemade potato chips before. Sure, I’ve tried lame baked ones (spoiler alert: they are not the same) but never truly fried potato chips at home before now....

Frosted Funfetti Layer Cake

Sisters are like sprinkles. Sweet and vibrant and (yes) a little bit crunchy. And life isn’t nearly as fun without them. Needless to say, when your sister comes to town and adamantly requests that...

Layered Panigacci with Pesto and Ricotta

Today I’m excited to share this recipe as part of an ongoing partnership with DeLallo Foods. As always, all opinions written are purely our own. We’re incredibly grateful for opportunities like these that allow...

Toasted Marshmallow Swirl Ice Cream

There’s marshmallow, and then there’s toasted marshmallow. Two entirely different beasts. Toasting brings out the best in an otherwise bland puff, caramelizing the sugars and giving the marshmallow a delightful crunch. But how to...
