Super Six! Caroline’s Superhero Birthday Party

Hey! Caroline turned six and I’m finally getting around to writing about it! (See below for more on that.) Oh, this sweet girl of mine is a ball of energy with loads of personality and sass. When I asked her what party theme she wanted, she bounced around with a few ideas and finally settled on super heros! I could hardly think of a more fitting idea,...

Blackberry Layer Cake

Since discovering the Milk Bar method for layer cakes, I feel like a whole world of baking fun has been revealed to me. This technique is a perfect tool box for playing and being creative with cake. Take, for example, something like blackberry layer cake. It sounds fairly basic and possibly even boring. Not so when adapting some of Christina Tosi’s...

Guajillo-Braised Short Rib Tacos

Whenever Josie and I get together, we know we are going to be cooking together. For whatever reason, we feel the need to front like we might actually make something other than Mexican food. After some hemming and hawing, we eventually get real and just decide which type of tacos and which type of margaritas we will be making this time. Last time she...

Churro Chocolate Tart

Let’s be real – I almost never have room for dessert after enjoying a Mexican meal. Chips and guac, tacos, and margaritas are all the treat I need. But, should you have occasion to need a dessert that nicely rounds out your meal, this churro chocolate tart is a perfect option. As much as I adore churros, I wouldn’t dream of making them for entertaining...

The Mucho Gusto

Oh my darlings, if you know me, then you know I love a good cocktail. The moment I first came across this particular drink, the mucho gusto, it was love at first sight. For starters, it involves pineapple-infused tequila AND toasted coconut salt, both of which are homemade and both of which take just minutes to make. For the life of me, I don’t know...

Ricotta Dumplings with Green Garlic and Asparagus

One of the most enjoyable parts of home cooking for me is being introduced to new ingredients. I have heard of green garlic here and there in the past, but didn’t pay it much mind. I didn’t know exactly what it was and didn’t have a reason to investigate it further. Then I came across this recipe for ricotta dumplings with green garlic and asparagus...

Honoring Earth Day

Earth Day was this weekend and as long time readers know, this is a very special day to me. Though I am of the mind that every day is earth day, I still love that there is a holiday honoring it. I didn’t have time to get this post up in time for the day itself thanks to a hectic work week leading right into the March for Science over the weekend. It...

Strawberry Shortcake

Oh my friends, it has been a week. I have had this post partially drafted since Monday but my week apparently had other plans. This morning I published it and the recipe disappeared. AAAHHH! Gosh darn it, I was determined to get this to you before the weekend! Spring strawberries are starting to arrive and thus, a killer strawberry shortcake recipe...

Seared Scallops with Herbed Spring Pea Pesto

With the arrival of spring, we’ve been loving the return of bright green everywhere, be it in our yard, covering the forest floor behind our house, or in the veggies in our groceries. In particular we’ve been loving fresh English peas and have been putting them into pretty much everything we can think of. The kids are of the mind that shelling the peas...

Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

If ever there was a sure fire way to get me interested in a particular fruit, it is to margarita-fy it. Let’s be real – I’m still 95% in the not loving beets camp, but last week my girlfriends sent me pics of beet ‘ritas at a local restaurant and I’m like, “Let’s do this!” As I have alluded to previously, I’ve been very slow to come around to grapefruit...
