It’s happening.  I was really hard-pressed to not just feature roasted in-shell nuts. They remind me…

Pecan Manchego Multigrain Crackers


Why haven’t we all been making our own crackers? This is the easiest (dare I say, foolproof?) dough that you will mess around with. It’s completely flexible…you pick the nuts, the cheese, the flours and make it your own. Crackers are one of those things that I never seem to have a fresh box of when I want them (does…

Savory Truffle Mustard Knots


{This post is sponsored by Maille} I hope you have lots of festive occasions coming up this month and if so, I have the perfect holiday appetizer to share with you. I use one of my favorite doughs as a base (it’s a brioche dough with eggs and butter and lots of richness) and then fold in Parmesan, fresh thyme…

Dark Chocolate Cake With Champagne Buttercream


Yes, it’s true. January brings with it lots of responsibility. The presents and cheer of December are faded memories that went into the trash with the wrapping paper and tinsel. But fear not. Whilst we’re knee-deep in juices and cleanses and new exercise routines, we have at least one special occasion that requires (no, DEMANDS) indulgence. And that, my friends, is the…

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider


I was completely inspired by Half Baked Harvest’s maple apple cider recipe in which she uses a slow cooker to make it. I was so inspired, that I got up off of my arse and played around with the recipe a bit. I have four apple trees so fasten your seatbelts…there are quite a few more apple recipes coming your way. My…

Five Spice Fig Jam


This post has so many ties to Beijing. Not that I had an affinity for figs while I was there. Nor did I make fig jam while living in China. But autumn was my most favorite season in Beijing, with spring running a close second. Winter was cold and dry and summer was steamy, hot and wet. In fall, everyone was back from…

{ blackberry + lemon vodka cooler }


blackberry + lemon vodka cooler { spring fever } I’m acting like I’m on Spring Break even though I haven’t been in school in, let’s just say, quite some time. Every year, for as far back as I can remember, I get a little crazy come spring. I want to shrug off responsibility, spend more money than I have, shove my…

{ five-spice cranberries three ways }


five-spice cranberries cranberries + cocktails + appetizer I like a recipe that will serve multiple purposes. For instance, when I make tri-tip, you can always expect beef tacos the next day. And if it was an especially big tri-tip, than I will roll it into chili and I’ve got three meals under my belt. Boom. These cranberries are just like that. First, they’re a…
