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. […]

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 […]

Medjool Date with Pistachios & Coconut

January 17th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Date

This weekend I went to a Golden Globes viewing party, with a potluck theme of “healthy but tasty”. I can only presume this theme was so that we could feel good about ourselves as we indulged in watching (and judging) some of the most beautiful human beings alive walk down that red carpet. As I […]

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 […]
