I love the power of social media. One of the things that I find special about it besides relationships that are born is the creativity that is provoked by one small snippet. The other day as I was enjoying my coffee and catching up, I saw a tweet from Brandi, about an angel food cake [...]
This recipe for chicken quinoa meatballs may seem a bit bizarre; but, trust me they are beyond tasty, and loaded with healthy goodness. Being that I am on a meatball kick, still, I have been mulling around this recipe for some time now. It happened one day when I had leftover quinoa, and was stumped [...]
The boys over at The Boys Club asked me over for Girl’s Night today, and I have to say I was thrilled to be invited to crash their “boys club”. I have a feeling they were expecting me to bring cocktails that would involve one of the luscious dark alcohols I enjoy. Instead, I decided to [...]
We are beyond excited to have a lovely guest post from one of our favorite people, Lucy Vaserfirer. Lucy was one of the first chefs we virtually met through Twitter, and we have been huge fans since. Her blog Hungry Cravings is a breath of fresh air, and her recipes are amazing, not only delicious [...]
What’s In Season
You are probably thinking to yourself, that this grilled cheese sandwich does not really fit into our new, low-cholestrol diet. Well, Lenny was traveling last week, so I did him a favor, by (attempting) finishing all of the cheese in the house. Don’t judge. Someone had to do it – took one for the team! [...]
A traditional Limousin Clafoutis made with pit-left-in dark cherries; the only twist, is that it is made gluten free by using coconut flour.
An easy, everyday pasta dish that is made with staples you have in the pantry and some fresh vegetables. Dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. The perfect way to feed your family and nourish your soul after a long day.
Don’t you love saying “Clafouti” I love saying it … clafouti, clafouti, clafouti. Not only is it fun to say but it is fun to make as well as eat. I cannot remember the first time I had it. I do remember loving the warm custard base and jammy fresh summer fruit. I was hooked. Clafouti as [...]
A couple years ago we went camping with another couple. We were sharing cooking responsibilities for the weekend to make it easier for everyone. We offered to make Sunday breakfast, and were excited about the menu: buttermilk blueberry pancakes, bacon, warm buttery maple syrup and pipping hot coffee. You have no idea how excited we [...]
We woke up to a windless morning, and bluebird skies, it was absolutely perfect. Our little Chili Pepper was a dream, she kept us warm and cozy all night. One of my favorite parts of a camping trip is waking up by feeling the early morning sun shine in on us. The ground is dewy [...]
Preparing for a camping trip does not have to be painful or time consuming. A few years ago we were hitting the road every other weekend, and wanted to be ready on a whim. No scrabbling around the house, throwing stuff together; everything in its place, ready to go. We keep a large canvas [...]
One of our favorite things to do is get in touch with nature. By this, I mean camping. We love to load up the car with our gear, maybe toss in the road bikes and/or climbing gear and head somewhere. There is nothing more relaxing than unplugging from the city grind, breathing in fresh air, [...]
