You don’t like pumpkin spice? I *guess* you can use those words together. How about some lovely fall apples then? Roasting them brings out extra natural sweetness, so you don’t even have to think about adding sweetener!Read More
I get so bummed out for a second when summer ends, then I start thinking about fire pits, leggings, sweaters, apple and pumpkin and I get so excited for fall! I was in the mood for pumpkin pancakes. This are grain-free, filled with tons of pumpkin, and taste like a total treat! The flavor and texture are perfection! Hope you love them!Read More
It was a lovely cool day here in Ft. Worth, and it put me in a fall mood. I needed a pumpkin spice smoothie! I’m not calling it a pumpkin pie smoothie, because I don’t want a breakfast dessert, but this is filled with pumpkin, not just spice. It bangs out nearly a quarter of the daily produce goal, and it’s cheap and delicious, so I thought I’d share. Whole30 and Vegan. Hope you love it!Read More
Every time I see huge Brussels sprouts they make their way into the grocery cart, regardless of what was on that list. Costco has ginormous ones right now! Earthiness from the sprouts. Bacony bacon. Tang from the feta. Tartness from the craisins. A pop of sweet nuttiness from the candied pecans. And an acid pop from the balsamic glaze. Perfection. It’s so darn delicious, easy, and it happens to be fabulously nutritious, so I make it all the time. It makes a great stand-alone breakfast because of the bacon. It’s a fabulous dinner. And it’s a killer bbq sidekick. I hope you love it, too! Read More

Do you watch Milk Street? Their book, Milk Street: Tuesday Nights, was in my top three cookbooks released last year, and now I see that it got a James Beard Award. Great pick! I try very hard not to say things like best, because my best may very well not be your best. So I will tell you why I love them, and you’ll get a better idea if it sounds like a fit for you. Flavor. They are really strong flavorists. There’s never an apologetic bite to be had. Minimalists. They really do a great job of getting where they’re going on the easiest road available. The recipes are global. For me, that’s great but also the only disappointment I have. As we travel the globe in their books, I’d like to see a little American food represented, too. We’ve got some great stuff!
They have a new book out, Milk Street: The New Rules, and it’s fantastic! Four days and 11 recipes in, and I think 3 of them are the best I’ve ever had. The lentils (I know! Lentils! Promise they’re an addictive bite!), the beef, orange, and olive stew, and the Turkish poached eggs with garlicky yogurt are the best. I said it again and although I think it sounds obnoxious, it’s sincere, and I’m leaving it there.
