Hazelnut and Chocolate Granola

As I type this, a batch of this hazelnut and chocolate granola is baking in my oven. I can’t even describe to you how good it smells in my house. Homemade granola in general just gives off such an incredible aroma! I remember baking it one morning and my daughter came downstairs and proclaimed, “Mommy […]

Rich Chocolate Pomegranate Tart

It’s actully the kids dinner time as I sit down to discuss this rich chocolate pomegranate tart with you. Usually, you can’t catch from 3-6 pm. I’m busy building forts and wiping meatball faces. Today, my baby decided she was SO TIRED she couldn’t stay up a minute longer and promptly fell asleep. While most […]

Lemony Loaf Cake 2.0

Did you every have a staring contest with the Starbucks lemon loaf cake? For some reason it’s just the perfect treat to pair with your coffee. Being a kosher consumer, staring is the farthest I got. Until, I made my own lemony loaf cake back in the summer of 2018. It was a match made […]

How to build a Winter Cheeseboard

Nothing makes a good party great like an epic cheeseboard, and yes anyone can throw (an amazing) one together! I’ve been making them since 2015, and let me tell you.. they weren’t always so pretty. However, I realized that with a little understanding and research on how to build one, they now are well….you judge. […]

Fruit and Nut Crisps

Oh it’s been way too long since I’ve posted here (If you’ve missed me, you can find me here everyday) One of my 2020 goals however, is to really take this space to the next level. So hopefully you’ll see me around here more. Now on to the FOOD…truth is, I’ve been looking for these […]

Potato Leek Soup

Ever wonder how I come up with a recipe idea? Truth is, I’m not always so sure myself. I get inspiration from almost anywhere. Usually I see a dish somewhere, in a magazine, online, or in a restaurant and it gives me an idea. Once I get that idea stuck in my head, I MUST […]

Apple Crumble Bars

Another season, another crumble bar recipe. I’ve posted this recipe with a few variations including Cranberry, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Cherry Pie. I actually started this recipe with a batch of blueberry bars I made for a magazine article picnic feature. I guess next summer I’ll add the blueberry recipe to my blog! Here comes fall, […]

Apple Loaf Cake

It was literally 86 F when I recipe tested this apple loaf cake, but it got me SO IN THE MOOD for fall. I had the idea in my head and literally threw it together between the chaos hours of after school and pre-dinner. I usually try to stay out of the kitchen at that […]

Mexican Chicken Burger

Ground chicken is hardly something I pick up from the grocery store. My most common main dish ingredients for dinner are ground beef and chicken cutlets (my husband is not a fan of chicken on the bone.) So. Boring. Believe me I’ve tried to convert him. I occasionally make a juicy whole roasted chicken and […]

Honey & Harissa Side of Salmon

Where does time go? It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe on my site, but for a very good reason! We had a delicious little girl a few weeks ago. Life’s been slowly getting back on track, and I’ve officially returned to the kitchen aka my office just in time for the holiday […]
