Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Dried Blueberries, Bacon, Almonds and Manchego

October 18, 2012

Since my last post my desire to cook has come in drips and drabs.  It’s not lost on me how ridiculous it is that I spent over a year and a half looking for a condo with the perfect kitchen – big, updated and full of light – and I’m barely cooking in it.  I [...]

First off, I have to say a huge belated thank you to everyone who came out, in Chicago or elsewhere, for the National Food Blogger Bake Sale and to local wine shop The Poison Cup for generously hosting our Chicago sale.

Apple Spice Cookies

March 27, 2012

When I went on my apple picking adventure to Indiana back in October I had a feeling once I was hauling my apples back to the car that I had over picked. But it didn’t really hit home until I loaded my apples in the refrigerator and they completely filled both my crisper bins.  For [...]

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Truffles

December 22, 2011

Like salami? Don’t forget to check out my fun giveaway from Creminelli. I couldn’t make it through the holidays without sharing a new cookie dough truffle recipe. Ever since my aunt brought chocolate chip cookie dough truffles to my parents’ house for Christmas Eve two years ago I’ve been hooked.  In fact, the original ones [...]

Blueberry-Almond Biscotti

November 25, 2011

Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone. I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday full of loved ones and good food. I made my usual trek to Minnesota to spend the holiday with my mother’s side of the family at my parents’ house.  Because I live the furthest from my family, I’ve never hosted the holidays and usually [...]

Banana Split Cookies

November 23, 2011

I love taking something that’s already good and making it better.  There is something satisfying, for me, about looking at recipes as if they are always in beta, with things that can be tweaked or improved.  I’m notorious for rarely making a recipe the same way twice so I always feel like I’m experimenting and [...]

Chai-Spiced Peach Oatmeal Cookies

October 3, 2011

If there is one thing (well, not true, there are probably many, many things) I dislike, it’s moving.  Sure it was fun in college, with the help of my parents to organize, pack, unpack, reorganize, and repack things, but when you’re a girl on your own it is decidedly NOT a fun endeavor.  Because of [...]

Blueberry-Ginger Crunchy Clusters

July 21, 2011

If the posts on my blog are any indication I should be blueberried out by now.  But there are just some foods that I find it hard to tire of.  Unsurprisingly, cheese is one.  I’ve been known to gorge myself on a giant plate of fancy cheese (like umm… last night) only to crave a goey [...]

Turkey Dried Cherry Pasta Salad

March 8, 2011

I’ll admit to being a sucker for grocery store deli counter salads.  Tossed with mayo or mixed with vinaigrette they tempt me ruthlessly.  (Whole Foods in particular makes a smoked mozzarella salad I’m smitten with.)  It takes all the willpower I can to wheel my cart by without stopping for a pint.  Because of this, [...]
