Pickled Red Onions-2

22 Jun: Quick-Pickled Red Onions

Guys, my website was down for almost 36 hours and I’ve never known such fear.  It felt like my dog was sick and I didn’t know if he/she would get better.  We’re all good now, and I’ve been waiting all week to be able to share these with you! Pickled…

Buffalo Chicken DIp-2

19 Jun: Buffalo Chicken Dip

Is buffalo chicken dip the best dip around?  It seems to make an appearance at many parties, tailgates and dip parties. Are those a thing?  They should be. For me, it’s a toss-up between buffalo chicken and spinach-artichoke dip.  I love both of them so much I could cry just…

Korean Pork Tacos with Kimchi Slaw and Mirin Crema

Here’s your recipe for Taco Tuesday tomorrow!  A little sweet, a little spicy and a lot funky, these tacos are a mash-up between Korean and Mexican food. I got the idea for these after seeing them in a Williams-Sonoma catalog as a use for their Korean braising liquid.  Knowing I…

Rhubarb Custard Cake

This cake is my final goodbye to rhubarb for the season.  I hope you can still find some to make this recipe because it’s such a perfect showcase of rhubarb. This is a stand mixer-free wonder: you just need a couple bowls and you’re set.  The lemony cake batter complements…

Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam with a Touch of Liqueur

I know, I know…rhubarb season is basically over.  I have a backyard connection for rhubarb and I just machete’d it down last week.  As a food blogger, getting you recipes quickly enough to use and eat what’s in season is sometimes the hardest part.  I’m working on getting better at…

Carrot & Ricotta Tart-2
Carrot and Ricotta Tart

This is a carrot recipe to convert all the carrot haters or apathists.  Here’s a random something-something about me: I don’t like cooked carrots…love raw carrots, especially as dippers (because dip, duh), but mushy, flavorless, unseasoned cooked carrots send chills through my spine. This tart is NOT that.  I was…
