Coconut Chia Pudding with Rhubarb Nectarine Compote
Coconut Chia Pudding with Rhubarb Nectarine Compote

I love watching Chopped. I’m always amazed at the chefs who come up with such beautiful and appetizing dishes out of that mystery box… and in 30 minutes? Wow. I often spend days just thinking through a recipe, not to mention making and perfecting it. I recently met a winner of Chopped and learned that […]

Peach & Red Pepper Jelly Grilled Cheese
Peach & Red Pepper Jelly Grilled Cheese

Who knew? April is grilled cheese month and since this is the last full week of it, I guess I’m a little behind the game and need to step it up a notch. Grilled cheese was one of the 3 types of foods that got me through my first trimester of pregnancy and I love […]

Cinnamon Spiced Apples & Pears

If you are Pinterest junkie like me, you’ve probably been inundated by the holiday pictures already with everything from making your own paper maché stockings to unique gifts made from paperclips. Don’t get me wrong. I love perusing some of the crazy ideas and the really good ones. It’s a great source to find inspiration […]

Hawaii – A Farmers’ Market Perspective
Hawaii – A Farmers’ Market Perspective

I am writing this to you from the most beautiful state in the U.S. That’s right, I’m in Hawaii and listening to the ocean outside my window as I type this! I’ve been touring the islands the past couple of weeks on my honeymoon which explains the short absence you’ve no doubt noticed by now. […]

Watermelon Salsa
Watermelon Salsa

I don’t like watermelon. There, I said it.  It just doesn’t float my boat or tickle my fancy or wiggle my pickle or perform any of those other euphemisms that make one fall in love with something. I announced this today in front of a few acquaintances while we were discussing summer fruits and I […]

Raspberry Pine Nut Clafoutis
Raspberry Pine Nut Clafoutis

Summer berries are on the prowl and I can’t get enough of them. My father has raspberry bushes back in Indiana and I remember picking them as a child. My mother would make (and still does make) the most wonderful raspberry freezer jam from those fresh-picked berries and as a child I would pick the […]

Minted Strawberry Melon Salad
Minted Strawberry Melon Salad

Every spring here in Southern California I find myself weirdly eyeing the stands at the farmer’s market for that first glimpse of bright red flesh. The first week I see them I start counting the days/weeks and making plans. I don’t buy the first strawberries that come to light – I just don’t think they […]

Gettin Fresh with PMA
Gettin Fresh with PMA

This year, I had an amazing opportunity to attend the PMA Fresh Summit along with 30 other food bloggers. What is that, you may say? Well it’s only the world’s best expo for fresh food and produce! Thanks to the Idaho Potato Commission, I received an all-access pass to attend the educational sessions on Friday […]

Melon, Avocado & Prosciutto Open-Faced Sandwich
Melon, Avocado & Prosciutto Open-Faced Sandwich

When I first got to know M, I started to realize that he did some things backwards. He would call his foot his leg, switch out words in a sentence and regularly exchange dinner for lunch. Now, I must explain that he is Austrian so mixing up the words doesn’t sound too strange considering English […]

Mango Strawberry Smoothie
Mango Strawberry Smoothie

I have always liked mango. It has not been until recently, though, that I’ve learned to really appreciate mango. In fact, until I watched a presentation by The National Mango Board at Camp Blogaway I didn’t even know how to properly cut a mango! (They have a great instructional video here.) Mangos are not only […]
