Pear & Goat Cheese Appetizer: Easy and Elegant

It was Valentine’s Day, and instead of wrangling a reservation in a cramped restaurant we spent time planning a menu, shopping, and cooking together. We were in search of fresh figs for our appetizer which were woefully out of season. It’s hard to beat the enchantment of figs for indulging in simple pleasures. But alas, there were no figs. […]

Broccoli-Cauliflower Gratin with Sliced Grilled Tri-Tip Roast

Broccoli-Cauliflower Gratin Recipe: September Sides

Ten years ago, we began remodeling—floor to ceiling, wall to wall, windows and doors—every room in our upstairs was updated. Thanksgiving Day we began in the kitchen, stripping everything down to the studs (fortunately, good friends let us come to their house for dinner). We invested gobs of time, buckets of sweat, and loads of […]

Sprouted Bagels - plated and served (1 of 1)

Parmesan Sprouted Wheat Bagels

Successfully making Parmesan Sprouted Whole Wheat Bagels inspired a happy dance at my house. A bona fide, get your hands up, twist and shout, tickled pink sort of dance in the middle of the kitchen.

Basil, Tomato & Goat Cheese Pizza with a Cauliflower-Mozzarella Crust

Basil, Tomato & Goat Cheese Pizza with a Cauliflower-Mozzarella Crust [Gluten-Free]

  The title is a bit long-winded; hopefully you didn’t miss the part about the cauliflower crust. Cauliflower, you say? I do say, and all my husband could say was “mmm” and “this is my favorite way to eat cauliflower.” (He’s not a fan of the white stuff.) He gave it a 9 out of […]
