Honey Sriracha Wings

I love a good appetizer. These sticky, sweet, and spicy party wings are deliciously simple and give off a restaurant quality. Its my “go to” recipe when I have guests and need a few finger food options. Just set out napkins and get ready to receive compliments to the chef. Ingredients: Whole Chicken Wings (…

Curried Carrots with Mint & Pumpkin Seeds

All the decorations and lights are up. The presents are under the tree and shipped to the far out loved ones we can’t visit this season. The only thing left to plan are holiday meals. I don’t know what it is but I don’t ever have the desire to put as much effort and sweat…

Cranberry Sweet Bread with Orange Glaze (Jingle Bell Bread)

I promised I would share some of my favorite holiday dessert recipes with you all. I have a note book dedicated to my baking scribbles stained with vanilla and butter fingerprints from me making constant changes as I go. More sugar here, less flour there. Let’s talk cranberries. I love these little red tart suckers….

Red & Green Velvet Peppermint Chip Cookies

I contemplate daily the type of home cook I am. More so, what type of website and business I am presenting to the public. Is it one of theory or feeling? In cooking both exist. In creation both exist. You can’t have one without the other. The best idea for me is to not choose;…

Sweet Potato Pancakes

This has been a week of solemn reflection. As I find some balance with the unsettling news of the passing of my uncle I am left desiring the company of love. What better place to seek it than in the arms of my family? I drove to my grandparents’ house, masked with a task to…

Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Go nuts for these homemade donuts! Forgive the sugary frenzy of recipes I have been sharing as of lately. My intentions are to share as many of my favorite holiday treats before they arrive. See I have good intentions. My intentions are as tasty as they are good. The one thing that adds to the…

Taffy Apple Cookies

In the spirit of autumn, apple picking, and farm fairs I am pulling this trick out of the oven. Taffy Apple Cookies bring the goodness of orchards and baked goodness to your home. The caramel, fresh apples, and nuts perfectly capture the essence of a good and sweet taffy apple. They also will give that…

Biscuits & Berries

Coming to you live from my kitchen nook/office space with this warm, tart, and sweet baked good. It screams afternoon coffee, cottage fireplaces, and oversized sweaters. There are a lot of recipes out there that call for biscuits from scratch. While I am usually the first to argue everything is just better when it’s made…

Brunch Mac

Can we talk comfort? All this time and space we are given due to circumstances and comfort still escapes us. So we look for it in shapely glasses of wine, in music, in 5 minute coffee breaks, in people, in food. Im focusing on the oven baked comfort of mac and cheese this week. The…

Potato Peeled Summer Squash Noodles

The weekend slips through our fingers like silk. Its a rainy Sunday morning and I am adorned in comfy sweats sipping green tea and drafting recipes. My father called me and asked if I was indulging in one of my rain naps. He knows me so well. It must be in our genes, we are…
