Easter is just around the corner and I’m setting aside all my favorite recipes for this spring holiday. Roast lamb or a baked ham are our typical family favorites (sometimes both if we’re feeding a crowd), an asparagus dish (either simply...Show More Summary
Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite cuts of pork. It doesn’t take long to cook, making it a superb choice for easy weeknight dinners, it’s lean but with just enough fat to remain moist and tender (hence the name), and is deliciousShow More Summary
Would this be a good place to admit that I only moderately enjoy sandwiches? I know, what kind of monster says such things! But, wait, come back. What I mean is, it’s the proportions: too much bread, too little filling. The obvious solution...Show More Summary

It's the beginning of the week, we're back at work and I bet you're already thinking what to make for dinner tonight, right? I know I am. I love the weekends because I have the time to be in the kitchen cooking and creating meals, even if they take hours. Show More Summary
American breakfasts are predominantly sweet: yogurts with fruit sauces and overnight oats with more fruit sauces and lattes with caramel syrup and whipped cream and our secret household love, that flaky cereal with the dried strawberries, but most especially the baked goods, muffins and quickbreads and cinnamon buns.

"Your flag is on the table," my brother and I used to tell each other when our napkin remained on the table instead of our lap. Don't ask me why we called it a flag, it's just the fun way our parents taught us. We were also taught to...Show More Summary
This vegan creamed spinach uses cauliflower purée as a stand-in for the cream. The most amazing part: The dish tastes just as creamy, but is actually more intensely spinach-flavored as a result, since dairy can mute flavors. It's a win-win.
If you're sitting next to me on the bus, these very well might be in my purse. And if you were on my most recent flight, they were most definitely in my carry-on (along with three of these quinoa burritos) - laugh/cry. Snack balls, energy bites, zoom balls - these little bite-sized treats check all the boxes. Show More Summary
Almonds are a delicious tree nut (they’re technically drupes, but culinarily they are considered nuts) that make a wonderful snack and ingredient to bake with.

When General Mills announced that they would be releasing some Girl Scout cookie-themed cereals in a partnership with the Girl Scouts of America, cookie fans got excited because it sounded like a license to eat cookies for breakfast. The cereals were announced last fall, but I’ve only started seeing them in stores very recently. I...
Rainbow sprinkles make everything a little more fun, from cakes to ice cream sundaes, and I’ve always had a soft spot for them. At one point in the not-too-distant past, rainbow sprinkles wouldn’t have made it into “fancier” desserts, but these days color is in and you can really get creative using this old standby....
Palmiers are one of the easiest pastries to make because they require just two ingredients: store-bought puff pastry and sugar. You can make puff pastry from scratch and end up with fantastic palmiers, but store bought pastries are consistent and convenient, so I usually reach for that. The trickiest part of making palmiers is shaping...
There's no denying that chicken-fried steak is a culinary icon of Texas. But what if we told you it didn't originate in Texas at all?
Oven mitts are among the everyday essentials that we need in our kitchens. They are designed so that you can reach into a broiling oven and grab out anything without getting burned. Silicone is a good material for making the oven mitts because it can withstand high temperatures of up to 400 degrees. Show More Summary
You may be thinking I can’t eat dessert, swimsuit season is just around the corner. It’s certainly what I’m thinking. But we all need to go off diet every now and then to give ourselves a little treat - celery sticks with peanut butter can only go so far. Show More Summary

There are several flavors that I closely associate with my celebrations of St Patrick’s Day and one of them is Irish cream liqueur. Bailey’s, Kerrygold and other brands are indulgent cream-based liqueurs that are tinged with Irish whiskey, vanilla, chocolate and other flavors – and the holiday is a welcome excuse to treat myself (and...
