Strawberry Rhubarb Sherbet-7

Strawberry Rhubarb Sherbet + Giveaway

12

This Strawberry Rhubarb Sherbet recipe, which I originally posted in the early, early days of Cafe Johnsonia, remains one of our very favorites to this day. I know we typically think of rhubarb as a late spring/early summer thing, but I’ve still been seeing rhubarb all over at nearby farm stands. That’s a good thing because […]

Pitcher of Lemonade Sparkler for the 4th of July

Two Refreshing Cocktails for the 4th of July

2

Monday is the 4th of July here in the U.S. It’s always been one of my favorite holidays – the early morning pancake breakfasts, the laid back lunch at the pool or beach, evening BBQs, and of course, the fireworks. But mostly, I guess, for me it’s all about the fun food and drinks. I’ve […]

Gluten-Free Holiday Appetizer | Butternut Squash Goat Cheese Flatbread

Gluten-Free Holiday Appetizer: Flatbread with Roasted Butternut Squash

When I catered holiday parties in the past, the menus usually centered around appetizers and salads. Those are my favorite party foods – always. And I think after all the sweets, people crave more savory party foods. I love, love, love using cheese in appetizers, especially for the holidays, for several reasons. First, most people […]

I think I have finally found the spread to beat all others – Roasted Persimmon Butter. Over on Instagram, I mentioned that I have been buying persimmons for the past few years, but I never really knew what to do with them. I admitted I felt a little intimidated by them. They are very pretty, […]

Early on in my marriage, I subscribed to Everyday Food, which sadly doesn’t exist anymore. I LOVED that little magazine so much. It made new ingredients and recipes feel more approachable as I was honing my kitchen skills. There was one issue that I had for years and years until it finally fell apart. I saved […]

Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie with Gluten-Free Crust

Gluten-Free Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie

Like many, I grew up with the ubiquitous pumpkin pie made from the recipe back of the pumpkin puree can. It’s not that that pie is bad, I just think I knew on some subconscious level that it could be better. Or at least I wanted it to be better. I would choke down a piece once […]

Gluten-Free Onion Rings with Pumpkin Sage Aioli

Gluten-Free Onion Rings with Pumpkin Sage Aioli

Way back in the summer, which feels like ages ago now (ha!), I made some gluten-free onion rings one night to go along with our dinner. I don’t normally do a lot of deep frying, so it’s pretty unusual for me to have a pan full of hot oil. I think we were making falafel […]
