Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars – Review and Giveaway!

I’ve really been making an effort eat healthier the past few weeks, and I’ve specifically targeted sugar.  Of course I still love a sweet treat, I just want to eat healthier versions. So when I was recently contacted by Nelly’s energy Truffle Bars about doing a review and giveaway I was VERY excited.  And I’m [...]

Coconut Lemon Trifle with Fresh Berries

Coconut Lemon Trifle with Fresh Berries

A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I was making a berry trifle, and I took a ton of photos so I could show you guys the process.  It’s not really a recipe per se, more like a bunch of recipes all thrown together. Once you make up each component of [...]

Derby Pie

Derby Pie

In honor of Pi Day, I present Wolfie’s Derby Pie from La Dolce Vegan.  I’ve been wanting to make this pie for years, and I finally got around to it.  This is the second pie I’ve ever baked with a real crust – as opposed to a graham cracker crust or a Crostata. After making a [...]

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

Chicken Bacon Artichoke Dip

I tested another recipe over the weekend for our Oscar party, but this one would also be perfect for the Superbowl this Sunday.  I wanted to do something different than my normal Hot Artichoke Dip, and using chicken worked for one the of the title puns I’ve been working on.  I came across this recipe [...]

S’more Bars

S’more Bars

Continuing with my Oscar party dishes, I’ll be making these S’more Bars for the film Amour.  Unlike the Les Mis bread, we’re going full on title pun with this one.  Which means they should probably be S’mour bars for the sake of the party. These are way too easy to make for being as good [...]

Simple Crusty Bread

Simple Crusty Bread

I’ve been meaning to post about this bread for a long time, but I hadn’t actually made it in over a year.  Back when I was still doing Moveable Feast dinners with Alix (of the fantastic Cute + Delicious blog), she sent this recipe to me for our Spanish feast. I came back to this [...]

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Quinoa, Corn & Black Beans

Hi, guys!  I’m slowly coming out from under the craziness that is having a newborn baby to care for, and I actually have a minute to write up a post.  I hope to have more time before another two months (or more… ahem) goes by. Let me start by saying that if you have any [...]

Cupcake Wars – Jelly Donut and Coffee Cupcake

Moving right along through the cupcakes I didn’t get a chance to show you on Cupcake Wars, here’s the next Round 2 flavor I would have made – a Jelly Donut and Coffee Cupcake.  I revamped my Sugar Donut Muffin into a cupcake, filled it with an organic mixed berry conserve, and topped it off [...]

Gardein Scallopini with Mashed Zebra Potatoes & Roasted Asparagus

Gardein Scallopini with Mashed Zebra Potatoes & Roasted Asparagus

Never heard of zebra potatoes before?  Neither had I, until Ryan found these at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market.  We couldn’t resist picking some up to experiment.  Of course you never have to twist my arm to try a new variety of potato! These look like a mix between a red potato and a Yukon gold. [...]

Rhubarb Cake

Rhubarb Cake

When I started seeing rhubarb at the Studio City Farmers’ Market last year, I remembered that when I was little we had a neighbor who grew rhubarb in his garden.  I felt like there was a cake my Mom would make with it, and when I called her she remembered and found the recipe to [...]

Wheat-Free Strawberry Tart with Lemon Roasted Pistachios

Wheat-Free Strawberry Tart with Lemon Roasted Pistachios

Okay, I know there must be people out there who don’t like strawberries, but I’ve never met them.  It seems like this fruit is universally loved (cue the emails and comments of people telling me about strawberry allergies).  I loved strawberries so much as a kid because we only got to really enjoy them during [...]
