A CSA-inspired salad, this cabbage kale tahini slaw is easy, and most importantly, delicious!
I was chatting with some blogger friends recently and the concept of “finding your blog’s niche” arose. If you find the right tiny corner of the internet and post just in one category, your blog is supposed to grow. It seems “everything I think tastes good” – my answer – isn’t a niche. Oh well. (more…)
A sweet roll worthy of The King of Rock and Roll, these peanut butter, banana, and bacon delights are aptly titled, Elvis Sweet Rolls.
This Elvis sweet rolls recipe was 3 years and 90 minutes in coming. A few years back, when I was toying with the idea of a serious food blog instead of a home bakery, I started testing recipes. One day, a craving for cinnamon rolls struck while I was listening to Elvis. This reminded me of the Elvis sandwich, and inspired me to create a sweet roll recipe. If you’re unfamiliar with the Elvis sandwich, it’s a peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich supposedly loved by Elvis. I made one batch of Elvis sweet rolls, invited a few friends over to test, and then got distracted and shelved the idea for three years.
Ensaladilla Rusa, also called Ensalada Rusa, or just Spanish potato salad, is a favorite Spanish dish.
I made this dish for my Daddy. Today is his birthday and so it seemed fitting to share Ensaladilla Rusa on the blog. When my parents visited last summer, we had a barbecue. The visit coincided with Fourth of July, and when it’s summer (or winter, or anytime really) and the Godfather has time, we barbecue or grill. There is a difference between barbecuing and grilling, but that’s for another post. When I asked my parents about side dishes, my father requested Ensaladilla Rusa, one of his favorite childhood dishes from Spain. I’m a Daddy’s girl, and so I worked out a recipe and he approved!

No churn vanilla bean lemon curd ice cream is a refreshing treat! It’s creamy no churn vanilla bean ice cream with a tart sweet swirl of lemon curd.
Sometimes food just appears in my refrigerator and I only have a hazy recollection of making it. Even if I only made it a few days prior, which is usually the case since I also don’t like leaving food in the refrigerator a long time. Today for example, I surprised myself with leftover cinnamon rolls… rolls that I made just yesterday for a post next week. *sips tea, moves on* When this food appears, it must be used. This is how we get no churn vanilla bean lemon curd ice cream, magically appearing lemon curd. (more…)
Mint pea couscous is the perfect side dish to welcome warmer weather!
It’s finally officially warm here, darlings. I needed spring to arrive. I needed warm weather and sunshine, and fresh produce of the green variety. The Godfather and I aren’t “live in winter” people. We’re more like “visit” winter people, and while we didn’t really have “winter” per se this year, we couldn’t leave the house too often with a new little in tow. Warm weather brings a little more mobility, and a slightly older baby ready to explore. Also produce. (more…)
