Fresh Lemon Cake


Consider this Fresh Lemon Cake a dazzling celebration of the humble lemon, that most-frequently used citrus that adorns our kitchen counters. I don’t know this for fact but I do on instinct. I put lemon in everything from warm water, to savory dishes that need brightening up to baked goods that need some sunshine. Yes, the humble lemon is a…

Cherry Jam Streusel Muffins


This past November I had the good fortune of joining the California Secretary of Agriculture, Karen Ross, some California Grown team members and a group of bloggers, writers, photographers and cookbook authors on a 2-day Agri-Tour around California’s Central Coast (also known as my neck of the woods). I created these really delicious Cherry Jam Streusel Muffins (with mostly ingredients…

Whipped Goat Cheese Gougères With Glazed Walnuts + Jalapeños


We need a new party snack, don’t we? These little nuggets remind me of a very sophisticated bar snack. Something that would be equally at home next to a glass of champagne or watching football. Which sounds a little bit how I’d describe myself if we threw in a propensity for lounging and Netflix binges. And yes, I think they…

Salted Caramel S’mores Tart


Sometimes something is just too dang delicious not to share and that’s the case with this spectacle of a dessert, behold the Salted Caramel S’mores Tart. If I had to pick my favorite flavor combination of summer, it would probably (most certainly) be the graham cracker-chocolate-marshmallow holy trinity of flavor combinations that is the s’more.

Gluten-Free Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream


The first thing I thought about when baking with Organic Agave In The Raw Nectar was making these Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream.

Pesto Pine Nut Pizza


Before I get into this Pesto Pine Nut Pizza (and how much I love alliteration), let’s just talk about pesto, shall we?   There is a lot of hub bub about grinding your homemade pesto in a mortar and pestle instead of using a food processor to sort the situation out quickly. I’m here to tell you it’s fine either…
