What’s Cooking: Brunch

“Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting,” wrote Guy Beringer in Britain’s 1895 Hunter’s Weekly, in an article titled “Brunch: A Plea.” “It is talk-compelling.

This Seasonal Pumpkin Hummus Will Have You Licking The Bowl

Sep 23, 2014

Hybrid Rasta Mama

Hummus is one of those foods that doesn’t exactly fall into a “food category” for me. It can be served as a dip, a sauce or topping, eaten alone or spread onto most any bread product. It can be a snack, a side dish, or a main meal. Heck, if...

River Run for Youth Wrap Up

What’s Cooking: Pears

Mmm, pears. Around here they’re picked in summer – and they taste spectacular grilled alongside that steak – but pears seem more suited to autumn meals and desserts. Something about the way they go with cinnamon, I guess.

Pears work in any course, from appetizers and salads, right through entrees and...

No Bake Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

An easy recipe for soft & tender fruit-filled muffins. Although secretly skinny & healthy, they actually taste like cupcakes—for breakfast!     This past Wednesday evening, my mom and I lounged on two of the comfy chairs in the family room. With the TV turned off and our pups quietly chewing on bones, we...

Perfect Yellow Layer Cake {Peanut Butter Filling + Chocolate Frosting}

This yellow layer cake is the perfect recipe. It’s delightful with chocolate frosting but it’s even better when you fill it with peanut butter. Because, duh.
