Chocolate Banana Granola

May 31, 2008

After my last batch of granola I was hooked on how simple it was to prepare and easy it was to customize. I knew all that stood between me and another batch was polishing off the last of my mango berry granola, which I did earlier in the week. For my second version I wanted […]

Chocolate-Filled Double Delight Peanut Butter Cookies

May 29, 2008

The name of these cookies may be a mouthful, but they are so worth the extra syllables. The recipe from Baking Bites is a take on this year’s million-dollar Pillsbury recipe. Nicole’s recipe differs from the original, however, in that it doesn’t rely on refrigerated cookie dough and opts for a peanut butter AND chocolate […]

Vegan Polish Sausage

May 27, 2008

When the weather turns hot and humid I inevitably start craving things that are simpler and more summery in nature. Lately it’s been sausages. I don’t believe I’ve had a proper one since a good friend’s going away party a couple of years ago. We all met up at a bar near Fenway Park and […]

Sugar High Friday: Coconut Lime Pudding Cake

May 25, 2008

I love a good challenge to shake me out of my comfort zone in the kitchen.  I’ve been familiar with Sugar High Fridays for awhile now, but have held off in participating.  My excuse for so long was that I didn’t have a blog, but now that I’ve started my humble home on the web […]

Smothered Tempeh Sandwich & Sweet Potato Salad

May 20, 2008

This menu is proof that just because you don’t like something when you’re younger does not mean you’re destined to hate it forever. As a kid, mushrooms and soy products were two of the things I avoided at all costs. In fact, I didn’t end up becoming fond of mushrooms until last year when my […]

Mango Berry Granola

May 17, 2008

When I left work today I really needed a pick me up.  I’d found out that one of my favorite mentors had resigned from my company and additionally that I might not be able to go to a prestigious award ceremony because it would conflict with important research for one of my accounts.  On top […]

Kitchen Chemistry

May 16, 2008

A few female co-workers and I recently started a book club. The intent was to get us to read more books related to what we do, marketing and communications, and to have a casual forum in which to discuss them. Our first book was Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything. I was expecting to really […]

Fish & Chips

May 14, 2008

My cravings tend to vary wildly depending on the mood I’m in. Yesterday I was all about American classics so I decided to whip up two with a healthier twist: a fried fish sandwich and chocolate chip cookies. Like many Americans I love fried food, especially when it’s seafood. Up near my work is a […]

Homemade Bagels

May 13, 2008

I love bagels, not just because of the way they taste, but because of the memories I associate with them. Growing up my dad would bring home fresh bagels and tubs of cream cheese after returning from the grocery store on the weekends. This meant delicious bagels spread with rich cream cheese for breakfast and […]
