Basil Lamb Chops with Lemon Quinoa

Every time I think about lamb, I think about my friend, Nikki. Nikki loves lambs… and I mean really loves lambs. Remember that video of Kristen Bell where she had a full meltdown and started crying uncontrollably because she was going to meet a sloth for the first time? If not, you need to watch […]

Friday Favorites: Very Berry Limoncello Trifle

This Friday Favorite is a new recipe in our rolodex but after one bite, it was instant love. Berries are so abundant and fresh right now that I can’t help but keep a stock in the fridge. The problem with that is that I need to use them. We have been eating berries a lot […]

It’s the dog days of summer and in many places just darn hot out! These are the days that make us long for the cool breezes of autumn, boots and cozy sweaters… Well, maybe not quite yet. We can still squeeze a little more enjoyment out of the hot furnace air. We just need a […]

Late summer in San Diego is one of my favorite times of year. The sunsets are pink and gold, the tourists are thinning out, the mornings are chill and dewy and the fresh produce is abundant. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but we are so lucky to have so many small organic farms in […]

I hate to say it but I’m not much of a baker. That doesn’t mean I don’t love baked goods. I do… Probably too much, actually! I’ve just never felt the same inspiration with baking as I do with cooking. One of my resolutions this year is to explore and learn more about baking to […]

  What is a party without a delicious dessert? In my opinion, it’s not a party at all! So, for my wine party I couldn’t have just one; I had to have two! I wanted a dessert that would pair well with red wine and another to complement white. Also, since I was making so […]

    Fall is in the air! Even here in sunny southern California, I can feel the nice chill in the early morning. Being from Indiana, I do miss the changing of the leaves and the earthy damp smell of the autumn ground. I feel a longing for the changing of the season yet at […]
