Lighter Chicken Pot Pie – Almost Perfect

Food cravings tend to get the best of us, but there doesn’t always have to be a guilt trip too. Chicken pot pie is an all-American classic that almost every person can relate to when we think of those frozen Marie Callender boxes from childhood. However, it’s even more satisfying to do it yourself for…

Spicy Chicken & Vegetable Stir-fry – Quick, Easy, Delicious

After much MIA, I’m finally getting back into the swing of things & dedicating a little more time for recipe sharing/blogging. It’s a great feeling to be able to share a passion you love, and not to mention a nice stress reliever when life gets hectic. Food is a healer in so many ways, but aside…

Summer Berry Pie – Cheers to Summer!

Every July and August when the sun decides to shine a little more and the weather’s more summer-like, there’s no better time for fruit pies. I recently made a delicious peach and blueberry crumble for a quick weeknight dessert, but the craft of pie making is something that should be attempted at least once. Rather…

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies – Just Because

Chocolate chip cookies are as Americana as apple pie and never gets boring for me anyway. But sometimes a girl needs her chocolate fix, and so the solution has to mean tripling the chocolately goodness. These cookies are just the right balance of sweetness, rich buttery-ness, and of course, the sharp flavor of that black liquid gold….

Whole Wheat Honey Buns – Better-for-You Treats

There’s no way in any shape or form would a sticky bun be ever classified as “healthy”. However, that doesn’t take away the fact that we can make them slightly less guilt-worthy, and definitely better than those we find in the mall or the frozen foods section (sorry little dough boy!). The main difference in these honey/sticky buns is…

Banana Walnut Bread – Simple Homemade Baking

The bananas hanging there on your kitchen counter are gaining black freckles by the day, so of course, there’s only one solution- banana bread. Even though it has to be one of the simplest things to make, these are the only times where it really crosses my minds. There are probably hundreds of thousands of recipes…

Cherry-Vanilla Cornmeal Scones- A Light and Summery Treat

Scones often have a reputation of being dense and heavy sweets paired with some afternoon tea, but don’t frown on these biscuits. With summer in full bloom, cherries are abundant and while a pie should be in the near future, scones are a fun and interesting way to incorporate the fresh fruit. No dried currants…

Korean Glass Noodles (Japchae) – Not Your Average Pasta Salad

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love pasta or noodles. While the possibility is endless, it just so happens that one of my favorites is also gluten free. Japchae, being the dish, uses sweet potato starch noodles and although it doesn’t have much flavor on its own, they do make a wonderful chewy base for…

Caramelized Apple Dutch Baby – Fancy & Easy

You can never have enough pancake recipes, and dutch baby or German pancakes should be apart of anyone’s arsenal. They’re easier than traditional American pancakes that usually mean slaving over a hot stove with a spatula in hand ready to flip. Instead, these are baked whole and sliced like a pie. Similar to how a popover’s…

Almond Raspberry Macarons – Don’t Sweat It

Hello! As much as I love macarons and all their artful glory nowadays (isn’t it crazy that something so ancient in culinary history has made such a trendy comeback?), they still make me a little rattled sometimes. Their tricky reputation is justified in the technicality of execution, but not necessarily the number or types of ingredients. However,…

Red Snapper with Mango-Avocado Salsa- Colorful, Fun & Fresh

One of the ways to maintaining good health and wellness is eating the colors of the rainbow. With the endless selection of fruits and vegetables, there is greater variety in colorful produce to choose from than ever. Today’s recipe is more of a springboard for inspiration of how to make healthy food visually appealing, while still tasting…
