“Peanut Butter Pie”

Right now, I’m on a mini road trip from Little Rock, Arkansas to Austin, Texas. Don’t worry, I’m not the one driving as I write this. I’ve been traveling as much as ever, without a kitchen most days, save for the times when friends and family let me take over theirs. As many people witnessed, the food blogging world erupted in Peanut Butter Pies on Friday. It was to hold […]

“Carrot Marshmallows”

I have a pretty nutty week ahead. In the span of four hours I’m going to be transported from rural Arkansas where I have been hiding out and have¬† had to take desperate measures for an internet connection….to the meatpacking district of New York City where the internet and just about everything else is fast. Talk about culture shock. I’ll have to put some eucalyptus oil on my temples. Or […]

“Dewberry Bread Pudding”

I had quite the 4th of July weekend. It began with a long road trip from Austin to Arkansas. I drove the entire span of Arkansas and I marveled at how different it is depending on where you are in the state. It was purty country. The weekend can best be described as Foodapalooza. There have been so many divine dishes that I’m going to share with you over the […]

“Elderflower Fritters”

I love eating wild foods which you can probably tell by now. Also, fried dough is delicious. So is amaretto. I had read about elderflower fritters in the process of making elderflower syrup and I just had to know more. Edible earthy tasting flowers, amaretto flavored batter, powdered sugar… let’s go! It begins with flour, lemon zest, 2 eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, almond milk, amaretto, and a whole bunch of elderflowers. […]

“Homemade Nutella”

The idea of homemade Nutella just thrills me. There is something so addictive about Nutella to begin with, but then when you tell me there’s a healthy version I can make… sign me up! My friend Elana over at Elana’s Pantry created this recipe. It has natural, whole ingredients, including unsweetened cocoa powder, protein rich nuts, and agave nectar, a natural sweetener. Once the hazelnuts are roasted the skins slip […]

“Mother’s Day Recipe Ideas”

Right now I am in a small town in Illinois, along the Mississippi in a very strange hotel on a very wide highway eating very hot chicken wings and drinking a very large strawberry mojito. All of this traveling is well… making me miss my own things and my own familiar faces. And making me think about those familiar lady faces that I love. So here are some recipe ideas […]

“How to Make Applesauce”

As you may recall, I went apple picking with an old college friend not too long ago. It was an attempt to re-live those cool, crisp New England days. But seeing as it was 104 degrees, and we were sweaty, I don’t think it was really a walk down memory lane. But we got apples. And I made a pie. And then I made this: Chunky Apple Sauce. You really […]
