Return to Normal (Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart)

My last post was in August. August, people. I knew it would be hard for me to blog while I was student teaching, but I had no idea I’d all but abandon the blog during that time. It was next to impossible for me to find any time to cook for myself, let alone takeContinue reading “Return to Normal (Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart)”

Linguine with Fresh Spinach, Red Pepper, and Lemon

I love going to the grocery store; I do it several times a week, if only for a few things. I know, I know, it is poor planning on my part, but I enjoy weaving through the aisles, checking out new and interesting ingredients I may have missed during my previous visit. I recall going toContinue reading “Linguine with Fresh Spinach, Red Pepper, and Lemon”

Puréed Vegetarian Mulligatawny Soup

Guys, I’m sick. I caught a beast of a cold earlier this week and I am one grumpy Sara. I’m achy, I’ve been sneezing, and if I’d known this was coming, I’d have purchased stock in tissues. I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed, but I’m awake now and before I head backContinue reading “Puréed Vegetarian Mulligatawny Soup”

Little French Fudge Cakes

I absolutely love (LOVE!) listening to The Splendid Table on NPR. I have been a fan for as long as I can remember and it is a staple in my podcast collection for long plane rides and road trips.  Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift developed this recipe for their cookbook The Splendid Table’s How to EatContinue reading “Little French Fudge Cakes”

Chocolate Sea Salt Ice Cream

I’m of the opinion, “Why buy something when you can make it?”  There are so many items we eat on a semi-daily basis that can be made in our own kitchens – why are we throwing money away on stabilizers, preservatives, and any number of other icky chemicals that comprise our “food”?  Think of thatContinue reading “Chocolate Sea Salt Ice Cream”

Banana Cream Pie

For the longest time I had been craving a slice of banana cream pie.  I know I could have probably satisfied that craving by heading to the local Village Inn, but why do such a thing when baking my own would much that much more satisfying?  Cream pies are, in my opinion, overlooked in theContinue reading “Banana Cream Pie”
