Fish Tacos with Chunky Guacamole and Mango Salsa

Can we have a little chat about tacos? It can be rather difficult for me to find great tacos where I live. So I either have to make them myself, or go to where the tacos are. When Kelly and I were planning our California beach trip, I told her my only requirement was that I needed tacos every day. And that wish pretty much came true. On our way from the airport to our […]

Roasted Persimmon Butter with Buckwheat-Teff Scones

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, but I honestly had no idea where to start. I feel like it’s pretty obvious what to do with say, […]

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 that night, and so I thought I would take advantage of the opportunity. I know onion rings may seem like something […]

Vanilla Chai-Spiced Chunky Applesauce (Naturally Sweetened)

Vanilla Chai Spice Applesauce

I know it seems kind of silly now, but for a while I was a little embarrassed to admit how much I like applesauce. I would “buy it for my kids” or make it from scratch on occasion, but it was always “for my kids.” Then it dawned on me that it was really a ridiculous notion. Applesauce is just plain good and I should enjoy it out in the open like a normal person. […]

DIY Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice (Kicked Up a Notch!)

Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

Pumpkin Pie Spice is probably our most-used and loved baking spice blend. All fall and winter long, and sometimes in the warmer months, we add a spoonful to just about everything. I started buying it a few years ago when I saw it at Trader Joe’s. I remembered my grandmother’s spice cupboard always had a small jar and it brought back some tender memories. So I grabbed a jar. Then went back for more. A […]

Meyer Lemon Curd

My dear friend Becky (Project Domestication) and I team up every month and share a recipe based on a theme we’ve chosen. This month Becky chose Mother’s Day. (Be sure to check out her Homemade Tartar Sauce recipe.) I thought about sharing some of my mom’s favorite recipes (you can find her Dutch Apple Pie recipe here), but instead I decided to share a recipe I often make as a mother for my children. One of their very […]
