I’m a nervous flyer. This wasn’t always the case but as I’ve grown older and developed a more acute sense of mortality, airplanes just aren’t my favorite thing. Turbulence is pretty much the worst.

These Honey Thyme Creme Fraiche Muffins are soft, creamy and just slightly sweet with a delicate herbal aftertaste. You won't be able to stop at just one!

Turbulence is like the definition of anxiety to me. There are little bumps that make me feel very unsettled. And after that first bump, I’m on edge because I have no idea if there will be more bumps or if I can relax and enjoy my book. It seems entirely possible that at any time there could be a massive bump and everything could suddenly go to hell. And if that happens, I’m basically stuck in my seat and completely powerless to stop it.

That’s such a metaphor for life, isn’t it? Except I guess that in life there are a few parachute options I’m not likely to find while sitting in coach.

Anyway. I’m really in love with this recipe and I wasn’t expecting it to be a big deal when I threw the ingredients together. I had lots of creme fraiche sitting in my fridge waiting to be used and fresh thyme from my CSA basket. Honey just sounded like the perfect way to bring it all together. These muffins are soft and slightly sweet with a creamy, herbal, honey aftertaste. They’re a perfect antidote to life’s turbulence.

I’m being featured on Better Homes & Gardens this week! I agreed to join them for a Christmas baking contest along with 15 other bloggers. We adapted recipes from the BHG website and are now facing off in a bracket-style contest for a chance to win a feature in the magazine as well as some other fun prizes.

Chocolate Malt Layer Cake is dense, moist and totally decadent. Chopped malted milk balls add flavor and crunch. You need this dessert!

The contest has four baking categories: chocolate, peppermint, fruit and cinnamon. I was lucky enough to get chocolate and decided to adapt a chocolate malt cake from their website. I didn’t make many changes. I simply swapped their whipped cream frosting for a decadent malt buttercream that you really need to try. For more information about the contest, to see what everyone created and to vote, visit Better Homes and Gardens’ Christmas Baking Contest.  My chocolate malt cake will be up for voting on Wednesday, November 19th. I’m facing off against a friend of mine, Naomi from Bakers Royale. She made a gorgeous chocolate peanut butter silk pie. If you think hers looks better, by all means vote for her! But if you have a moment, we’d love a vote either way.

Head over to Better Homes and Gardens to get their recipe (and my modifications) for Chocolate Malt Cake!

This recipe for Orecchiette with Andouille Sausage, Pine Nuts and Parsley is a hearty, flavorful dinner that's ready in under 30 minutes!

I am a complete space cadet. People who know me and love me understand that this is just part of my charm. Putting this post together has been a very typical example of how I operate. I sat down to write the post, was distracted by something or another and five minutes later found myself browsing on Groupon for juice detoxes. Fast forward an hour and I decided to start working on the post again. I walked into the kitchen to double check how many servings are in a standard box of orecchiette and instead found myself doing the dishes and roasting broccoli for dinner. Totally forgot to check the amount of servings in the pasta.

This recipe for Orecchiette with Andouille Sausage, Pine Nuts and Parsley is a hearty, flavorful dinner that's ready in under 30 minutes!

I am constantly emailing myself reminders and “to do” list items. If I don’t jot it down immediately, the thought vanishes from my mind in a hot second. Luckily Jeff finds this endearing. I mostly find it frustrating because it can take me forever to get even the most simple tasks accomplished.

What I love about this pasta dish is that it comes together very quickly with minimal preparation. Once I get started, there’s no time for me to forget about what I’m doing. It doesn’t take much longer to prepare than it does to cook the box of pasta. I use Delallo Whole Wheat Orecchiette because it’s my favorite.

Author:
Serves: 8 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 pound Delallo Whole Wheat Orecchiette
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 links smoked andouille sausage, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Prepare the orecchiette according to package instructions. Reserve ½ cup of the pasta water right before draining.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Caramelize the andouille for several minutes until it has crisped up a bit. The pan should have a nice brown glaze on the bottom. Pour about ¼ of the reserved pasta water into the pan to deglaze. The water will simmer. Scrape the brown bits up with a spatula and incorporate back into the sausage.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium-low, add the garlic and cook for another minute, stirring.
  4. Add the cooked pasta and remaining pasta water to the pan, stirring to combine the ingredients. Remove from the heat and stir in the pine nuts and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
