This particular cupcake is rich and dense, chocolaty, and has a tight crumb. It strikes the perfect balance of sea salt, cocoa, vanilla and coffee.
Rich, creamy, delicious comfort food. Can be made vegetarian/vegan if you use vegetable stock and omit the fish sauce.
A little sweet for my tastes, hence the reasoning behind only 1 teaspoon of maple syrup, but if you dig the sweet stuff feel free to add more like a tablespoon or two of syrup. I served these with Sriracha and it was the perfect complement.
A spicy side dish that goes with just about anything. If there’s any left over have it for breakfast topped with a poached egg!
I served this for dinner with sauteed kale and onions and little potato pancakes that I threw together from last night’s mashed potato leftovers.
A black bean base, zingy pickled jalapeños, roasted tomatoes, what’s not to love about this?!?
Creamy spinach with chunks of Indian cheese and spices.
This flavorful stew was a great way to finish off the cold and snowy day. Rich, warm, Indian flavors come together with lots of nutrient-packed veggies for a dish that’s both tasty and healthy.
Hearty, seasonal, room temperature side dish that will kick up the flavor on any meal.
Next time I may try adding a tablespoon of goat cheese to the mascarpone mixture to give it a tangy hint.
What I did to create this recipe was look at existing carrot cake cookie recipes, then cross some of my favorite elements with our family recipe for carrot cake, which includes the likes of shredded coconut and fresh pineapple.
If you like the butternut, sage, and cheese combo, this egg dish is the perfect brunch option for you. Our family devoured it on Christmas morning.
Rich. Thick. Creamy. Sweet. Savory. Hearty. Delicious.
Slightly crunchy, a little salty, it has the chew factor, it has texture, a little bit of sweet offered up by the dried fruits, and a teeny bit of heat.
The ideal accompaniment for schnitzel. And beer.
Because vegetables smooshed into fried cakes are always tasty…

My favorite cookie of all time is the molasses cookie. It’s rich in spice: cinnamon, ginger, clove. It’s chewy and crackled on top, and has crunchy crystals of turbinado sugar sprinkled over it.
