We have 4 (maybe 5?) different kinds of coffee maker in our house – not one a “traditional” coffee pot or pod coffee maker. Stove top espresso, French press, pour over, travel press mugs, all live in our small “coffee and tea” cupboard nestled between the microwave and refrigerator. A grinder and a few other accessories in there too. We do not play when it comes to coffee in this house.  (more…)

Hot chocolate and soup are my two favorite cold weather comfort treats. When I see temperatures dropping, I make sure I have ingredients on hand for both hot chocolate from scratch and from a mix, and wait for the perfect chilly evenings to snuggle up on the couch sipping cocoa from a mug. Marshmallows optional. As we discovered last year though, I can get a little over-zealous in the purchase of hot chocolate mix, meaning it finds its way into baked goods. My caramel hot chocolate brownies were such a hit last year, I decided to experiment a bit this year and make hot chocolate macarons!  (more…)

I keep one and a half lists of recipe ideas at any given time. One and a half at the moment, but I’m slowly merging the two for simplicity’s sake. “Merging” the lists mainly means that I’m working through what’s left on one so I can go paperless for my recipe idea tracking. One of the items on my little paper list though, is a good gluten free banana bread. The more I thought about it though, the more I decided I had to make a paleo banana bread and not just a gluten free banana bread. First of all, I make some really good paleo baked goods, and second because why not? In my opinion, natural sweeteners make for a better banana bread anyway. (more…)

Cuban cuisine is not complete without talking about (and eating) pork. Pork was the centerpiece of many family meals growing up, whether it was a whole hog for Christmas Eve dinner (known as Noche Buena), or a pork shoulder for Easter and most holidays. Enjoying the meal together as a family is the culmination of moments I enjoyed as a kid that led to everyone gathering at the table. (more…)

Last year, I really fell in love with fresh cranberries. I put cranberries on baked brie, in orange bars, scones, nothing was safe! In fact, our cranberry sauce last year was just an extra batch of the topping I made for the baked brie. But this year, when I picked up fresh cranberries, I wanted something different. Having just been lured into purchasing a small mountain of gorgeous ruby pomegranates, combining cranberries and pomegranates into a sauce only seemed natural. I’m glad to report that the results are delicious, and with the help of a slow cooker, easy!  (more…)
