Eggnog Cream Pie with Caramel Rum Sauce… Where to begin with this beauty?! So many of my favorite flavors all wrapped into one, delicious dreamy holiday package.

Pumpkin Bourbon Cake With Brown Butter Bourbon Buttercream


Pumpkin Bourbon Cake With Brown Butter Bourbon Buttercream. Did you get that? There’s a heavy hand of bourbon in this cake and it’s a lovely thing. And I have a strong affection for alliteration.

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…

A backyard wonder. A beachcomber’s…

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. And I knew, from the start, I wanted them to be gluten free. Not for the sake of being gluten free (although that’s a perk for many) but because the idea of a  moist,…

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…

Lemony Brussels Sprout Pignoli Pizza


Man oh MAN have I had some pizza cravings lately. And this combination of flavors has been my current go-to: bright bursts of lemon zest, slightly charred and crispy Brussels sprouts, bitter radicchio and toasted bits of pignolis (aka Diamond of California pine nuts). Sometimes I’ll add prosciutto (which is heaven) and other times sun-dried Kalamata olives (which I can’t…
