Chocolate-Avocado Mousse

My friend Lexie has always told me about this amazing, dairy-free chocolate mousse she makes. For the past couple of years, I’ve been dying to try it, but I still hadn’t tried it until NOW. As we firmed up our dinner plans for tonight — I’m having a vegetarian, gluten-

Sophia’s Greek Yogurt with Kale Pesto and a Poached Egg

How funny to have a breakfast so reminiscent of summer on an uncharacteristically warm January day. The sweet, fragrant basil was a treat I happily transformed into my old standby, kale pesto, as I promised myself to get a basil plant for the kitchen next time I see one. Sophia’s

Welcoming Autumn

And all of a sudden, it’s fall. Bring on the hearty, comforting dishes. I’m shocked, but nevertheless ready for hikes, pumpkins, cider, toasty nights, boots and sweaters — and the inevitable hibernation after this crazy busy, fun year.Everything is changing so quickly this season.

Beet Sauerkraut Grilled Cheese with Garden Veggies

Green Pepper, Pancetta, and Egg Flowers

I saw this idea a while back on Pinterest, and it looked so fun! I impatiently waited until finally, fresh peppers were available from my CSA share this week! It was time to act. This is a really fun take on the egg-in-hole toast, but will veggies instead of bread.

Garlic-Scape Stuffed Burger with Tsaziki Sauce

I’m on a bit of a home-cooked burger kick right now. I love me a good burger, and buy my meat in bulk from a farm store that has great deals on bulk chicken and grass-fed beef. So, here’s another Sunday night burger, perfect for summer. This is a super

Father’s Day Grass-Fed Burgers with Green Garlic Aioli

Happy Father’s Day Dad! Thank you for all you’ve done for me, and for instilling your love of food in me. Not sure if I’d be doing this without you! If you continue to help taste test, I’ll continue to experiment. We had a fairly low-key Father’s Day, since we
