Old Fashioned

Since I am right in the middle of binge-watching season six of Mad Men this week, I thought it might be apropos to do a quick post on how to make an old fashioned cocktail.  Or I should say, more accurately, how I make an old fashioned.  Because I’m pretty sure old fashioned cocktails...

3-Ingredient Nutella Croissants

You guys. I’m pretty sure this recipe may win the award as the best spur-of-the-moment, cleaning-out-the-pantry, 3-ingredient-dessert experiment of my life.  My life, I tell you. And if you love Nutella and French pastries, I’m pretty sure you had better try them too.

Peanut Butter Banana Cookies

Asparagus-Spinach Pesto Pasta with Blackened Shrimp

I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days.  Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government.  Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer...

Vegan Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

This past Friday night was meant for celebrating. The weather was sit-out-on-the-deck-in-the-cool-evening-breeze perfection.  Friends gathered from all around the city with chips and salsa and salads and popcorn and laughter and stories to share.  The fire pit was aflame.  The candles were lit on this (gluten free and vegan) carrot...

The Friday Five

TGIF, friends. Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead.  I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend.  OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about...
