Baked Zucchini Spaghetti Medallions

Special thanks to Green Giant! This post was sponsored by Green Giant as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. David versus Goliath. Jeans versus post-baby body. Netflix versus 8 hours of sleep. Some battles are epic. But there is one that has withstood the test of time, eternal turmoil to rival all wars… toddler versus vegetables. I am currently huddled in the muddy trenches of this bloody struggle. Like her mother before her, my daughter refuses to eat veggies. And if it wasn’t for my maternal force-feeding instincts, …

Mincemeat Almond Pie with Bourbon Glaze

Tis the season for pie! And since I am personally obsessed with all things British, I am going to subject you to a traditional English recipe once again. But fear not, for as always I have added a unique twist to the classic recipe. Because who likes messing with a good thing? I do! With the help of MI-DEL Pie Crusts, I have created a scrumptious pie recipe to add to the holiday bake list: Mincemeat Almond Pie with Bourbon Glaze. Who wants a slice? For red-blooded Americans a pie with ‘meat’ in the title might sound a bit unappetizing. …

Giving Tuesday: Love With Food

Did you know that November 28 is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season? After the last few days of selfish consumerism, it’s a very refreshing thought. So with that in mind, I thought it important to quickly highlight a charitable food company that is doing something wonderful. For every box of goodies you purchase, Love With Food will donate a meal to a hungry child. Christmas spirit in it’s truest form for Giving Tuesday. Here’s more information about this fantastic company and a link to their shop… Love With Food  Love With Food …

Campfire Pretzel Bites with Glutino

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Glutino® and Udis®. The opinions and text are all mine. I married into a family of doctors. Of course, it is quite beneficial when I need a flu shot or have a question about a sore throat. But there are times that I find my medically-inclined in-laws quite a nuisance. For example, like the time that my husband’s aunt casually leaned over the Thanksgiving Day table and told me to put down the bread roll because I had a gluten intolerance. Hand to my heart, that was exactly how …

Sweet Curry Cake

As a professional recipe developer and food stylist I face a major obstacle once a year. It always occurs at the same time, on the same day every single time… my husband’s birthday cake. You may be thinking to yourself, ‘wait this should not be a problem at all for you’. But being married to a person like me comes with some issues. The key issue being that you get spoiled. Oh yeah, my lovely husband no longer wants a regular old birthday cake. No, he wants a fancy pants, knock-my-socks-off one of a kind masterpiece every year. So that means …

Spring Fruit Galette with Bob’s Red Mill-12692

Spring Fruit Galette with Bob’s Red Mill

There is one tradition that is a must in my household come Easter and its name, my friends, is baking.  From sweet hotcakes to a rustic bundt, it’s a requirement for the holiday.  Not only is it wonderful to get spoiled with a bit of sugary decadence, it’s a wonderful bonding activity that has been passed down from generation to generation in my family.  My mom learned the art from her grandmother and made it an integral part of Easter celebrations during my childhood.  Plus I always got to lick the bowl… obviously, the best memories I have as a …
