May! We made it! This has been the strangest spring of all time, and I hope you’re doing well. I’ve picked out some of my favorite spring recipes so we can make the most of our fresh produce.I’m working on some gardening and baking projects this weekend. I’ll be back soon with new recipes. Here are some links that I’ve found interesting lately:How to Celebrate Special Occasions From AfarCan’t wait to make Tessa’s Healthy Almond Butter Oat BarsMy Restaurant Was My Life for 20 Years: Does the World Need It Anymore?
Let’s rewind to Valentine’s Day. I’m single. I’m not feeling well. My mom is in town and our plan is to eat dinner and watch movies. As the sun goes down, I decide that I need a brownie—like I really need a brownie, for aforementioned reasons—and proceed to pull every baking book off of my shelves in my search for my ideal brownie recipe.
Take my word for it: You need to make this salad. How about tonight? And then again for friends this weekend?This crazy-looking showstopper features carrots at their best. Caramelized roasted carrots combined with super thin rounds of raw carrots offer an intriguing, irresistible contrast of tender and crisp.
When presented with a cocktail menu, I just can’t help but order a whiskey drink. Old fashioneds, manhattans, a well-made whiskey sour or any spin on the above. I’m a whiskey girl. Always have been, always will be.Naturally, when I spied the cinnamon maple sour on the menu at Summit Bar and Grill the other day, I had to order it.
On the evening of Halloween, I found myself stretching at a familiar pace during my regularly scheduled yoga class. Arms up, forward fold, flat back, jump to plank. Somewhere between upward dog and downward dog, my mind started wandering. What happened to my favorite holiday? Why hadn’t I dressed up this year?
By now, I hope my blog expresses my belief that food should taste great and make you feel good. I insist that my recipes meet those qualifications. I’m not the type to stomach a shot of nasty wheatgrass just because it’s nutritious. Why should I let something that doesn’t taste good pass my lips when there are so many delicious, healthy options around?
