Several years ago, David and I stumbled upon, what has since become one of my all-time favorite restaurants :: Lama Beans Cafe in Berkeley, CA. We picked this spot because online reviews raved about this little local gem – high quality, delicious local food that’s…
I am so excited to share the recipe for the best granola I have ever tasted. Last August, the family & I traveled to Branson for a fun “last hoorah” before the start of the school year. While there, Big Cedar breakfast was one of…
Strawberries and Rhubarb are a classic late spring-early summer combination. One easy way to make delicious use of this seasonal pair is to make a simple fruit cobbler. Just a few ingredients, a yummy crumble topping and a blitz in the oven yields the most delicious, seasonal treat.Continue reading Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler with Oat Hazelnut Crumble
I LOVE a good melty, cheesy grilled cheese sandwich. But, it honestly never fails. I burn at least 1 side of EVERY single grilled cheese sandwich I make. No matter how hard I try – the pan gets hotter faster than I expect and once I flip it over – BOOM! black as a piece of coal (and similar tasting too).
That’s why I think this sheet pan method is so.very.spectacular. Once you see how easy and *burn-proof* this method of grilled cheese making is, this will be your go-to sandwich-making method for sure.
Tater Tot Casserole – it’s my response to the 4,000th time I’ve been asked ‘what’s there to eat?’ And really, it’s an awesome meal solution. It’s easy to make, the ingredients are simple and at hearing the words ‘tater tots’ my kids are over the moon.
The new Summer 2020 kid’s cooking class schedule is up! We have a new location (Reclaimed Warehouse in Moore, OK) and are excited for all the fun things we’ll be able to do here.Continue reading Summer 2020 cooking class schedule!
I had no intention of sharing this recipe – and then I had my first bite. Even trying to tell you how good it is will not do this banana sheet cake justice. I’ll just say, at least for me, this is one of those bites that makes you pause and close your eyes to take in all that’s happening to your taste buds. Really.
It’s no surprise, during this time of pandemic, I’ve been working out my biscuit hand! I’ve shared multiple versions of biscuit recipes – chocolate chip, apple cinnamon and blueberry but it occurred to me – what about the simple, classic traditional buttermilk biscuits?
Chocolate Chunk Biscuits?! You guys — biscuits have become my life. With four kids and a hubby at home all of the time (sheltering in place), I haven’t exactly had extra time on my hands. But I sure have had a renewed desire to practice comfort food and provide comfort food. ((me along with the entire nation, I think!))
No kidding, I think I’ve made 200 biscuits in the last month!!Continue reading Bittersweet Chocolate Chunk Biscuits w/ Fudge Gravy
NEW COMFORT FOOD RECIPE – The other day, I was talking to hubby about food. That pretty much happens all of the time, but lately our conversations are a little bit more about how we can use what we have without going to the store. And just like that, I was making Tuna Noodle Bake!
Sheet Pan Pancakes are one of my very favorite things. They are so easy to make and they finished product is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD. Sensational. The addition of toasty pecans and crunchy granola adds both amazing flavor and texture! I’m giving you fair warning, you’ll want to make these for breakfast lunch and dinner!
Well, with all the kids suddenly home everyday and for every meal, I’m suddenly making a lot more food than normal – are you in the same boat? And of course, we can survive on PB&J’s, but I’m wanting to do something special for them – knowing this is such an unusual and difficult time.Continue reading 5-Minute Queso
“Slow down and smell the biscuits” – I have a t-shirt with that phrase printed on it. A few years ago when I bought it, I just thought it was a funny tee for a foodie like me to wear.
Well, what can I say – I’ve had some extra time on my hands these last few weeks and something about making biscuits in my kitchen – over and over – has been very therapeutic for me! My practice has resulted in the most flavorful,…
