Heart Warming Minestrone

As much as I have fallen in love with the French array of pre-made soups which come in box form and feed a good six people with delicious heartiness, I was in the mood for a homemade soup. Smelling the soup cooking and stewing away and feeling the warmth fill the apartment as the snow … Continue reading

Caramelized Shallot and Crispy Sage Macaroni and Cheese

I felt it appropriate to return to this recipe which was featured in the first entry on my blog back in the Weebly days, because I did not give it enough attention at the time. This time I made it in France for very good friends of mine and I had the Boy and friends … Continue reading

You know what’s amazing? Banana “ice cream”

Since I’m sitting around a lot recently and happened to have a banana sitting around, I decided to try this one. In combination with my new favorite item (Smucker’s Natural Creamy Peanut Butter with Honey) … Continue reading

Barley Mushroom “Risotto”

This recipe is something I often crave. It’s based on one by Mark Bittman (hail, oh might food man) for a risotto style barley dish. It’s the same slow process as risotto but it’s barley so it’s got even more of a bite to it. I substitute white wine vinegar for the white wine to … Continue reading

Go-to Vegan Macaroni and Cheese – Cheese-a-rific!

Alright so my main qualm against becoming vegan is that I adore cheese. Love it. A vegan friend of mine, who is also a med student, told me that cheese has some components that resemble opium which makes us literally addicted.

So when I found all the recipes that have popped up recently for a margarita cupcake, I figured this was a perfect opportunity to try them out. I personally am not a huge tequila … Continue reading

Whole Wheat Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

For our lovely girly July 4th weekend, I knew we’d need something sweet, summery, and a little bit healthy for breakfasts. When I came across this recipe for Whole Wheat Lemon Poppy Seed Scones (which are pronounced skahns, not skohns by the way…), I knew I’d hit the jackpot. No white sugar (though brown sugar … Continue reading
