Vanilla Milk Gelato

Vanilla Milk Gelato is creamy, dense, and packed with vanilla flavor. It’s the perfect sweet treat for ice cream lovers! I’m not sure what it is about the word milk, but whenever I see it in a dessert title, I want it. Maybe it has something to do with the implications of milky, at least in my mind: creamy, delicate, smooth, a pleasant mouthfeel, and slightly sweet but far from cloying. Like cream, but without the heaviness. I feel the

Pasta Salad with Asparagus, Asiago and Lemon

Pasta Salad with Asparagus, Asiago and Lemon is a light, seasonal side dish. Serve it at a barbecue or alongside a simple springtime dinner. I find a lot of pasta salads to be overly heavy for my taste. Pasta is already heavy enough on its own, you know? Adding things like Italian dressing or mayonnaise don’t have much appeal to me. I do, however, enjoy serving up simple pasta salads such as this one, with lemon and olive oil-based dressings.

Wild Blueberry Curd Ice Cream

Wild Blueberry Curd Ice Cream is a decadent dessert with a gorgeous color. You need this in your life! I think it’s possible I went all last year without making homemade ice cream or curd recipes for the blog. These are two of my favorite things, and it tells me how burnt out I had become. Therein lies one of the main dangers of turning a hobby into a career. Writing a book zapped all of my mojo, and I was worried it was

Tomato Feta Egg Tart

This Tomato Feta Egg Tart is perfect as an appetizer, side dish, or even for breakfast. It’s beautiful and incredibly delicious. I mentioned recently how food waste has been weighing heavily on my mind. The fact that more than one-third of all food produced globally is wasted or spoiled, while there are people down the road from me living in food deserts who can’t afford to put a meal on the table is insane. INSANE. It’s been causing me to make changes. Small

Between travel and cookbook edits, my life is feeling scattered and rushed at the moment. I’m not posting new content as frequently as I’d like. I actually prepared and photographed numerous recipes before heading off for my recent trip to Europe. I just haven’t posted them. I’ve never shared the mindset of some of my fellow bloggers, who feel it’s important to post on
