How To Cut Brussels Sprouts

Raise your hand if you love Brussels sprouts! ???? Meeeeee too. I love how they look like the most intricate, perfectly-formed baby cabbages when you slice them open.  I love how they taste practically like candy after being roasted, but maybe look forward the most to those charred little crispy...

Pasta with Italian Sausage, Kale and Mushrooms

Pssssst psssst.   I have a fun little secret for you guys.  This amazing pasta is actually…vegetarian!  ? Ok, well actually, it can be or it doesn’t have to be.  If you’re a fan of traditional Italian sausage or chicken sausage, you can totally stick with that. But…as a new member...

Big week behind the scenes here at Gimme Some Oven HQ — I bought myself a new camera!!! And oh my goodness, I absolutely love it. For any of you fellow photography nerds out there, I’ve been shooting with a Canon 6D for the past five years, which has been great....

Wholesome Carrot Muffins

This weekend, I boxed up all of my heavy winter coats and sweaters and scarves and shoes and moved them into my new little corner in Barclay’s basement…and I couldn’t be happier about it. Spring seems to finally be here to stay! And I’m starting to slowly start moving...

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of ? + ?. These vegan chocolate avocado brownies are my long-time favorites.  This (also vegan) dark chocolate avocado mousse is absolute magic.  I regularly toss some leftover avocado in these two smoothies to make them extra creamy.  And now today, I’m adding...

Rosemary Focaccia Bread

This delicious Rosemary Focaccia Bread recipe is easy to make, and tastes so rich and wonderful with the addition of fresh rosemary, olive oil and flaked sea salt. A few years ago, our Kansas City tribe lost one of our best — our Cammie — to the Wild Wild West...

Pineapple Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry

Lately, I seem to have developed a random obsession with asking everyone I know to tell me their go-to favorite meal that they make most often for dinner at home.  Not the kind of dinner that they maybe aspire to make all of the time (you know, the 100% local, organic,...

Tomato-Rubbed Bread (Pa Amb Tomàqet)

Oh my goodness, you guys…Barcelona.  ? We’ve only been home from our trip to Spain for a little over two weeks, but I would seriously pack up my bags and head back over again in a heartbeat.  This city absolutely stole my heart. And based on a quick scroll through the...

Pozole Rojo

One of my random cooking goals for 2017 is to learn more about cooking with dried chile peppers.  ? I’m always passing by them at the grocery store that I frequent most in Kansas City, which is beloved for its epic selection of Latin American favorites.  From soft homemade tortillas, to...

20-Minute Thai Basil Chicken

As excited as I am to be moving into Barclay’s house when we get married in June, I’m definitely starting to feel All The Feels about leaving the River Market in downtown Kansas City — the neighborhood I’ve called home for these past five years. Gosh, there are a million...
