Barbecue Spice Rub

Barbecue Spice Rub

I’m long overdue to share my favorite Barbecue Spice Rub with you. It’s salty, peppery, and slightly sweet. If you’re vinegar-averse, this is for you!! I’ve loved it ever since I first made it 8 years ago, when I started this blog with my 365 […]

Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate

Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate

Last summer, I finally returned to iced coffee as my afternoon/lunch break treat. And for that, I love this Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate. It’s just so easy to make ahead, and then I can have coffee whenever I want! Some days I just need something […]

Corn and Green Bean Salad with Lime

Corn and Green Bean Salad with Lime

I don’t write a lot about vegetables. I’m clearly more of a sweets person. But this bright, flavorful Corn and Green Bean Salad with Lime is too good not to share with you. We love it. It’s a warm, all-vegetable salad, made mainly from frozen […]

Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame, and Cashews

Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame, and Cashews

This Steak Salad with Lime, Sesame Oil, and Cashews is my absolute favorite salad. The lime juice is zippy; the sesame oil, toasty and delicious; the cashews, crunchy and buttery. Jalapenos add a slight but not overwhelming amount of heat. And grilled steak – if […]

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

Alton Brown’s Plain Ole Brownies

It’s been 8 years since I first made Alton Brown’s Plain Ole’ Brownies (as part of my 365 Recipe Challenge). I’ve often felt that, although I attempted the brownies two or three times, I didn’t quite do them justice.* So I finally tried them again.

Bulgogi Tacos

Bulgogi Tacos

I love this recipe for bulgogi tacos. It’s a delicious, actual 30-minute weeknight dinner that my 3-year-old eats and eats and eats, and so do we adults. Even so, just how much I liked it surprised me. I’m not generally a fan of fusion cuisine. I […]

Campari Margarita

Campari Margarita

It surprises me that I’m writing a post about a recipe for a Campari Margarita. It surprises me because, in fact, it’s the only drink with Campari that I’ve enjoyed. I’m sure some of you are in the same boat as we are, with a […]

Strawberry Bellinis

Strawberry Bellinis

I was recently reminded of that time that I prepared way too many bellinis for my good friend Jen’s bridal shower. I’d never planned for a formal (-ish) party before and I had no sense of scale, no idea how much of anything would be […]

Strawberry and Cream Scones

Strawberry and Cream Scones

These Strawberry and Cream Scones are among my favorite scones ever. I made them frequently in 2012 when I first tried them. It’s been such a long winter this year. I figured that if spring weather wasn’t going to arrive and stay, I should take […]

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

This recipe isn’t particularly seasonal. Sweet potatoes are a fall vegetable, right? But then again, with the unseasonably cool weather New Jersey keeps having, a warming Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew sounds pretty hot right now. This thick and creamy pureed stew is warm and […]
