Broiled Citrus with Honey & Hazelnuts

Sometimes in the middle of cold and dreary winter, you just need something bright and happy and just a little bit fancy to brighten your mornings. Winter citrus is bountiful right now, and broiled winter citrus is juuuust the little extra something you need. Sweet […]

Sunchoke and Radish Tartine

Sunchoke and Radish Tartine

So we’ve already pretty well established that I love cheese and bread. I’m really just always trying to find socially acceptable ways to eat more of both. And Tartines feel like a pretty good way to do that while still adding in some vegetables for […]

Persimmon and Camembert Galette

Persimmon and Camembert Galette

Note:  I originally published this Persimmon and Camembert Galette on May 7th 2018, but since it’s persimmon season now I’ve been busy recipe testing and have an updated version to share.  Hope you enjoy! I never have been much of a baker – I find that […]

Parmesan Pumpkin Beer Bread

Parmesan Pumpkin Beer Bread

Ahh, fall cooking.  I’m ready for it.  It stays hot very late into the season down here in Nashville, so I’m not quite ready for full on pumpkin pies and hot apple cider.  This parmesan pumpkin beer bread, however is the perfect thing to ease […]

Squash & Pesto Breakfast Strata

Squash & Pesto Breakfast Strata

Seeing as it’s late summer, my garden is absolutely overflowing right now.  It’s not overflowing in the mid-summer “this is so new and exciting” kind of way.  It’s overflowing in a little bit of the overwhelming kind of way.  I’ve got tomatoes for days, more […]

Almond & Cherry Clafoutis

Almond & Cherry Clafoutis

Guys, cherry season is starting to wind down, and I just realized last weekend that I hadn’t yet made a cherry clafoutis.  The horror!  Cherry clafoutis is a summer tradition for me.  It’s a classic, custardy French dessert that perfectly showcases the best of that […]

Baked Eggs with Garden Greens and Herbs

Baked Eggs with Garden Greens and Herbs

Anyone else’s garden going crazy right now?  There always hits that point in the middle of the summer when things just seem to take off, and my garden is definitely there now.  Sadly, this is also the time when my greens start to slow down […]

Burek – Bosnian Spinach & Feta Pie

Burek – Bosnian Spinach & Feta Pie

By now you’ve probably heard of Croatia as one of the hidden gem destinations you need to add to your bucket list.  Croatia is admittedly wonderful, but the other countries in the Balkans deserve some love too.  Bosnia & Herzegovina in particular with its storied […]

Basic Crêpes

Basic Crêpes

I remember very clearly my first nutella banana crêpe in Paris 11 years ago almost exactly.  Crêpe stands are all over the city, mostly clustered in tourist areas, but the French definitely eat crêpes regularly as well.  Crêpes can be filled with both savory or […]
