Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce

My friends have gotten used to the fact that they are always my guinea pigs for trying out new recipes. It is the rare — very rare — occasion that I bring a dish to a gathering that I have actually tried before.  Instead, they have come to expect that...

Slow Cooker Apple Cider

Asian Broccoli Salad with Peanut Sauce

I am on a mission to learn to like broccoli. And I’d say that I’m about 47% of the way there. I spent a childhood pushing it around on my plate with a fork, pretending like those “little trees” were part of some enchanted forest that could come to life on...

Oh my guac. Guys, I have literally made hundreds of batches of guacamole over the years.  Hundreds and hundreds.  I’ve made single batches for myself.  I’ve made huge batches for parties.  I even choose to do most of my grocery shopping at the “Mexican” grocery store near me almost...

Coconut Whipped Cream

Call me a nerd, but I’ve started a spreadsheet amongst my friends.  (Well, I should point out that it’s one of many shared spreadsheets that we have.  We dig anything to do with organization and presentations.)  The most recent one?  What We Eat (and Don’t Eat). I don’t know...
