10 Ways to Cook with Blueberries

April 30th, 2012 · 8 Comments · Berry, recipe

I’m feeling a little blue today, which is due in no small part to the fact that I would prefer to be announcing the availability of my alphabet book today, but due to some technical difficulties with Amazon, I can not. And I don’t know for how long things will be delayed. Sad, sad face. [...]

Oh my my. I was just about to shower and decided to stop in the kitchen for a snack, when this combination jumped out at me. No joke–I took a few bites, ran upstairs, got the camera, snapped photos and came right to my desk to tell you about it. Yes, I kind of stink [...]

March 9th, 2012 · No Comments · recipe, strawberry

These cookies make me happy. I like most cookies anyway, but these just captivate me. There is a fruit surprise inside! What could be better than that? The little notes catch my eye and make me smile even if I know that I wrote those very notes myself. It’s like I left myself a clue [...]

Coconut + the best orange julius recipe!

February 28th, 2012 · 2 Comments · coconut, recipe

Coconut is one of those funny foods that people tend to either love or hate.¬† I’m of course, in the love category. It’s fattening, decadent and rich and yet you can still call it “healthy”. What’s not to love? Previously however, I had only ever had the brown husked coconut that is fairly common (at [...]

Bergamot Iced Tea

January 31st, 2012 · No Comments · Citrus, recipe

I write this post with great relief as I have been fiddling with these bergamots since last week and haven’t been able to come up with anything that I would even remotely be willing to tell you about. Until now. I tried a cookie, a truffle, another scone and some white chocolate bergamot bark — [...]

Cook pears like an Iron Chef: 10 quick ways to make them shine

December 14th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Pear, recipe

As I mentioned in my recent post about Warren pears, I like pears but have a hard time getting super excited about them in their raw form. I do love one here or there, but for the most part when I have pears they end up lending their delightful presence to something larger or smaller [...]

Spiced Sapote Biscotti Cookies

December 12th, 2011 · 3 Comments · recipe, Sapote

I don’t generally (meaning never before) post recipes of anything other than cocktails. It’s not because I don’t like to cook great food. I definitely do, although I do it less because I enjoy the process of making the food and more because I live for the moments of eating the food. But mostly I [...]

10 Ways to Cook with a Tangerine

February 27th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Citrus, mandarin, Maven, orange, recipe, tangelo, Tangerine

I am seriously in love with tangerines. I know they are all actually mandarins, but for some reason using that word seems pretentious to me, somewhat akin to¬†appositely using the word “apposite” in a sentence outside of language arts class. Anyway, I grew up calling them all tangerines and so it will be. As it [...]
