S’more Brownie Tart With Pecan Graham Crust


Hold onto your boxer shorts, I’m doing a giveaway. I’ve always thought about doing one and some really fab companies have offered me product but, honestly, it sounded like a lot of extra work. So when Teri from NoCrumbsLeft approached me and asked if I wanted to do a joint giveaway of a Lagostina copper saucepan (see it up there in…

Salted Caramel Brown Butter Blondie Ice Cream


I was going to make a loaded brownie ice cream until my son requested blondie ice cream. I decided, from this point forward, he is a genius and should be consulted on all further recipe development. Both of my kid’s personalities were evident from the beginning. Stella was born a spitfire. Personality for days. I used to say she looked…

Petite Raspberry Scones + Fresh Lemon Glaze


How’s it going? End of school, blazing pre-summer heat + life have kept me from you. I’m sorry. I’m back. And I’m seriously backlogged with truckloads of recipes that I want to share with you. Think savory Spaghetti + Meatballs  that comes together quickly. Or what about that Salted Caramel Brown Butter Blondie Ice Cream that I’ve been parading around…

Chia Cherry Muffins


| chia cherry muffins | Could the name for these be any less sexy? Chia Cherry Muffins. Snore. But, there are actually a lot of really exciting things happening in here. Most importantly, it’s a healthy muffin masquerading as a delicious one. Let’s face a cold hard fact…in reality, most muffins are just cupcakes without the frosting. I mean, really, who…

Fresh Strawberry Cream Scones


| fresh strawberry cream scones | Periodically I like to put on some grubby clothes, slather my face with sunscreen, pull on my Hunters and make my way out to my planter beds. From November to March, my beds are a little sparse and contain rogue growth…usually the result of anything I let go to seed the prior season. This year, I…

Chai-Spiced Granola


chai spiced granola | how I eat | I recently spent several days with a good friend. We stayed up late laughing and talking. We talked a lot about DisplacedHousewife and the cookbook I want to write. There are lots of blogs out there. Some are all sweet. Some are only savory. Some have a little mix of both. There are paleo blogs,…

Thai Noodle Salad


Thai Noodle Salad A friend first told me about this Thai noodle salad. She had it at a local-ish restaurant. She showed me iPhone photos and a list of ingredients. You have to try it, she said. Then we went to the actual restaurant to taste the Thai noodle salad. And, yes, it was every bit as good as she said. Completely delicious, in…

Chocolate Rye Stout Cake With Marshmallow Meringue


I mean…I’m not sure what else to say, but look at this stout cake. This is a beautifully damp cake. The rye-stout combo, while bold in its own right, hangs back and lets the chocolate notes take center stage. This combo does double-duty by also keeping overt sweetness at bay. The birth of this cake started with dreams of cream cheese frosting…which is pretty standard issue for a…

Brown Butter Muscovado Snickerdoodles


Brown Butter Muscovado Snickerdoodles I dreamt about this cookie for weeks. It plagued my every waking minute. Ever since I made those gluten-free chocolate chip cookies that were unbelievably delicious. We couldn’t stop eating them and no one seemed to care or notice that they were gluten free. I decided those cookies were so exquisite because they were laced with brown butter.…

tahini brownies with black + tan sesame sprinkles


| tahini brownies with black + tan sesame sprinkles | I think the masses out there are going to be divided on these tahini brownies. Not by the taste, but the sound of it. I think half of you are going to say, ‘Hell to the NO!’ And I think the other half are going to say, ‘I love tahini…

GF Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


gluten free brown butter chocolate chip cookies { calling all gluten-free betches } I worked long and hard for this recipe. For you. All for you. Frankly, I’m exhausted. But it was worth it. Because this isn’t a ‘good for a gluten-free cookie’ kinda cookie. This is a damn good cookie. And, to my gluten-free sisters and brothers out there, take…

Carnitas + Cheesy Black Bean Enchiladas


carnitas +  cheesy black bean  enchiladas  { you’re actually getting two meals…whaaa? } Keep reading for the world’s best carnitas and, because I’m modest, the world’s best enchiladas. This should actually be two posts. But, I’m moving a little slow this week and consolidation makes total sense here. There are a couple of things happening at my house. First, I’m obsessed…
