Summer Fruit Cocktail with Lime-Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup

Summer Fruit Cocktail with Lime-Vanilla Bean Simple Syrup

For a long, long time I have avoided any recipes that fall into the fruit salad or fruit cup or fruit cocktail genre. As much as I love these delightful sweet salads, I just didn’t see the point in offering recipes for them. The reason was simple: fruit salad is ridiculously easy and adaptable, and […]

Healthy Eating for Ordinary People had an amazing looking Whole Grain Fruit Crisp that reminded me of my Brown Butter Apple Crumble from this fall. Suddenly it was like a little bell went off in my […]

It always starts with an idea … and this time, I wanted to do something simple and easy, bursting with fall flavors. And it had to have a crumble topping. That was a must. I looked through cookbooks, but ended up just winging my way through it. I am so happy with the results — […]

This is not your grandmother’s apple (or pear!) sauce. This sassy, sweet concoction is enhanced with ginger and nutmeg — an unlikely combination that totally works. The creating of this recipe was totally by necessity. I just couldn’t let the fruit in my fridge down … See, when I opened my refrigerator this morning, I […]

At a family party this weekend, my cousin made a beautiful salad of heirloom tomatoes, red onions, herbs, nectarines and a light vinaigrette from a local farm. It was brilliant.

If you are what you eat, then my four-year-old Will is a moist pancake with berries. To say he loves pancakes is like saying that the sun is lukewarm. Will’s devotion to pancakes is unreal. If we let him, Will would have a big stack of pancakes every single morning. But, that wouldn’t be good […]

Flaky. Sweet. A little tart. Oh, so good. Somehow, I imagine that to most people apple turnovers are a dessert – a tasty, homey, delicious dessert. But me? I like quiche for breakfast and easily give in to requests for breakfast for dinner. So, these turnovers weren’t dessert. They weren’t a special afternoon snack. They […]

Over the years, I have experimented a lot with cranberry sauces. I’ve been looking for the right recipe that is different, but delightful. This is it. This cranberry sauce is about as easy as it can get. The addition of apple adds a nice (and slightly sweet) twist that really takes the sauce to a […]

Happy birthday, Weekend Herb Blogging! Weekend Herb Blogging is celebrating its second birthday this weekend. Creator Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen has challenged bloggers to incorporate an herb and a veggie into a dish for this weekend’s roundup.
