Hi friends! Sending you into the weekend with one of those meal starter ideas that I keep mentioning this month.

Baking tends to get a lot of attention in the weeks leading up to the winter holidays, yet it’s often overlooked in January. Perhaps this is because the holidays are regarded as a time to celebrate and indulge, while the arrival of a new year prompts a lot of focus on healthful eating. In my…

I’m always tempted to write “Liquid Sunshine” on my homemade lemon extract labels,  because that’s exactly what it reminds me of. The bright flavor is perfect for making poppyseed muffins or lemon bread with vanilla glaze, and it’s ridiculously easy to make. Just combine two ingredients with a little time and voila! Sunshine in a bottle that’s perfect […]

Creamed spinach is one of those dishes that sounded a little old-fashioned to me even when I was a kid. We didn’t eat it at home, but my mom had a soft spot for it—as she did, and still does, for most classic comfort fare—and so I tasted it a few times when she ordered…

This is another one of those recipes that had me feeling tripped up over terminology. Lasagna, even a skillet lasagna, is typically made with layers of melty cheese. This one forgoes those layers for the addition of cashew cream, which makes the whole thing creamy/cheesy/etc., but makes it a departure from anything resembling traditional lasagna,…

5 Ways with Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is high in protein, all-natural, and makes for a fabulous substitution for a lot of other less-healthy ingredients in baking and cooking. I was never really a big fan of yoghurt until I tried the Greek versions – it’s strained to produce a thicker, creamier texture. Not dissimilar to loosely whipped cream, the stiffness…
