Today I gave myself permission to let go of responsibilities and deadlines and just play in the kitchen. I started the day thinking I would pull out my sourdough starters and give them some love but I ended up going a different direction entirely. At some point this morning I was reminded of a gluten-free brioche roll recipe I had seen on the Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Flour website. Since I still had most of a bag of the Cup4Cup flour (I first talked about and used this flour in this Sweet Potato Bread) and a fresh supply of my favorite Kerrygold butter, I decided to go ahead and try the brioche roll recipe. Just because. Continue reading →

I love quick breads. They’re easy to make, the recipes can easily be changed up to fit your mood, and pretty much everyone loves them. I know I haven’t met a quick bread I didn’t like. So when I saw a recipe for a Sweet Potato Cranberry Quick Bread pop up on Facebook yesterday from a new-to-me food blog called Beard & Bonnet, I had to investigate a little further.

As promised, today I’m going to share how I made Phil’s messy but delicious lemon birthday cake. This rich, buttery bundt cake is infused with lemon zest, filled with a delicious Meyer lemon curd, and topped with a tart lemon glaze. Too much lemon? Never. Continue reading →
Have you eaten too many chocolate bunnies and deviled eggs lately? This pink grapefruit and avocado salad is a delicious way to transition into healthier spring eating.
We’re actually on the tail end of citrus season around here, but the pink grapefruit that arrived in my CSA box reminded me of this salad I made last year and I had to finally share it with you. This Grapefruit Vinaigrette with Honey and Coriander is so delicious on its own that I kept the salad nice and simple. I tossed together some butter lettuce, chopped avocado, and grapefruit segments and it made a perfect light lunch. Continue reading →

I’ve been reading about Aleppo pepper for a few years now, but I’ve always had a hard time finding it at the store and I’m trying not to make so many online food purchases. I figured that I would run into this elusive spice someday and sure enough, that’s what happened last week. I’m really not sure how it took me an entire year to notice that multiple stores in Fresno stock this amazing crushed pepper. Thanks to the large Armenian population here, we have some fantastic local markets filled with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean spices and crushed Aleppo pepper is readily available at all of them.

The Summer Fest party continues this week and the guest of honor is the cucumber. When I started thinking about what recipe to share today that would highlight one of my favorite summer vegetables, I came up blank. I don’t usually cook with cucumbers… I just love to eat them! I love them so much, I almost always have cucumbers in the fridge. Continue reading →
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but there probably hasn’t been a whole lot of “me” showing up in the blog lately. Sure, I’ve been sharing recipes, might have talked about the weather or the Farmer’s Market a few times, but I’ve been pretty guarded about what I share. Yes, I’ve mentioned the divorce, and all the moving I’ve done in the past year, but there’s been something else going on with me lately. Continue reading →
