On Adventure

Hey Everyone! How’s your week been? As we get closer to the new year, you’re probably thinking about a new year’s resolution, or how you’d like to improve your life in 2018. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m always after the next big adventure. And […]

Around the World in 5 Recipes

Around the World in 5 Recipes

Hey everyone! I had a realization the other day: Food connects everyone: past, present, future, real, or otherwise. Food can bring the past to life, it can take you to other cultures around the world, and it even makes fictional characters a little more life-like! […]

Learning to Love Mezcal

Learning to Love Mezcal

Mezcal is a rich, smoky, pungent liquor. Similar to Tequila, but smoked – to me it tastes like to Scotch. Both tequila and mezcal are made from the Agave plant, but the process for making each is a little bit different, resulting in much different […]

I scream, you scream, let’s make coffee ice cream with almond milk

I scream, you scream, let’s make coffee ice cream with almond milk

  Coffee ice cream is one of the no-frills flavors that I’ve often overlooked in favor of chunky-peanut-butter-chocolate-swirl-madness or some other equally-as-sexy promise of ice cream euphoria.

What to do with your produce when you go on vacation (don’t throw it away!)

Your secret WOW dish involves: Smoked Fish Stock

Your secret WOW dish involves: Smoked Fish Stock

Normally I stay away from fish stocks unless I’m going all-in with a chowder or asian soup. Fish stock is sometimes [expectedly] fishy and thin, not adding too much oomph to the final dish. It needs to really get dressed up to stand up to the bold flavors […]

Serious Ice Cream: Balsamic Feta Cheesecake Ice Cream

Serious Ice Cream: Balsamic Feta Cheesecake Ice Cream

Sounds decadent, right?  It’s not as diet-busting as you’d think, which is a really solid bonus because bathing suit season is just around the corner. Maybe this creation sounds a little suspicious too: feta and balsamic in my ice cream?  This isn’t a salad! … […]
