Pomegranate Rosemary Bread Wreath

Christmas is just around the corner, so you know what that means? It is baking season, my friends! Sure, receiving gifts and celebrating with loved ones is nice and all, but the true joy of the season for me is baking. Yes, I am very specific and fickle with my standards for happiness. During the holiday season, I am a baking machine. Every chance (or far-fetched excuse) to bake something and I am on it. Need me to bring something to the office party? Boom, Bavarian chocolate cake! Oh, you want to go meet Santa Claus at the mall? Kazaam, stained glass …

Bourbon Bacon Scones-15554

Bourbon Bacon Scones

You are probably very familiar with scones. They’re sweet, delicious, and hail from Great Britain… what’s not to love? They are a morning staple that never fails to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Truly a perfected food. Or are they? I set out to challenge the traditional notion of the scone by making a savory, meat garnished version. The results were excellent. Now, I am absolutely not saying that they can rival the classically sweet treat, but they certainly are a delicious alternative when you want to shake things up. Plus I have added a bit of …

Spicy Harvest Pizza-15303

Spicy Harvest Pizza

Fun fact: October is National Pizza Month. Now normally I don’t observe cockamamy made-up holidays, but this is one I can get behind. I probably shouldn’t admit this publicly, but in my household we make pizzas at lease once a week for dinner. I can hear the divide forming between my readers: the ones that think this is awesome and the ones that think this is grossly irresponsible. To the former, I send you a virtual high-five. To the later, I say that pizza is (quite, literally) what you make it. So, I often make much healthier takes on the stereotypical pie… …

Scottish Oat Cakes

Much to the chagrin of many a child, it is time to go back to school. With school comes a long to-do list for the parental units… shopping, scheduling, carpools, and meal prep. Well, I am pretty much useless to you when it comes to most of those things, but I certainly can help in one department. Let’s get our meal prep on, baby! I have teamed up with one of my favorite brands, Bob’s Red Mill, to bring you a wholesome back to school breakfast that will make all generations smile. Scottish Oat Cakes, anyone? I spent some time …

Tuna Avocado Crostini-14999

Tuna Avocado Crostini

I am relatively new to the mommy game, but that does not mean that I do not already have unreasonably high expectations for my daughter’s eating habits. Part of this parental delusion stems from the fact that I work in the food world and am positive that she will love everything I cook up. The other part of this delusion comes from my (clearly) unbiased opinion that she is a perfect child and shall never do wrong… that’s the same part of my brain that thinks she will sleep through the night and miraculously clean up after herself. I can dream, …

Oh yes, I went a bit crazy in the test kitchen at the simple thought of Autumn …

French Toast Bundt Cake-14780

French Toast Bundt Cake

French toast is a must-have staple of any brunch. The sweet, egg-soaked bread, topped with loads of syrup and butter! Truly, if I do not get a slice (or four!) of the delectable breakfast treat at a Sunday brunch, then I feel cheated. But if you have ever attempted to make the dish on your own, then you know that it can be a bit time consuming. It is even more of a chore when you are hosting a large brunch party at your home.  Seriously, who wants to spend the whole day slaving over individual slices of French toast? …
