October 16, 2017
Toasty biscotti with a nutty almond flavor and bits of tangy freeze-dried strawberries, finished with a sprinkling of raw sugar for a sweet crunch. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined-sugar-free!

How is it already October? Like seriously, how?! I feel like I should be making all the pumpkin spice things right now and pumping out the fall vibes, but instead I’m talking about the strawberry almond biscotti that I was supposed to post about 2 months ago…. Oops. Regardless, if good things are worth the […]

Strawberry Almond Financiers {gluten-free}|

It’s funny how sometimes the smallest little things can transport you to a different time of your life and bring back memories you probably never thought you’d look back on in the moment. It’s the sort of feeling you get when you hear a certain song or look through old pictures, and it’s also something […]

Somehow yesterday didn’t feel like much of a kill-me-now Monday, until the point where I sat down to put this post together and realized that all I wanted to do was be done with any sort of work for the day. That’s where comfy couches, cozy blankets, and glasses of wine come in ➝ to make the end […]

Strawberry Apple Crumble - a wam, nutty crumble that combines juicy summer berries with crisp fall apples in the best way possible.  |

You guys? Summer is soooo not over. Everybody seems to think it is though, and I keeping seeing pumpkin recipes popping up around the web, fall treats appearing at coffee shops, and all this other goodbye-summer hello-fall craziness. I’m all for the temperature dropping a little below three digits and I love everything pumpkin as much as the next person, […]

Whole Wheat Mixed Berry Loaf Cake

Whole Wheat Mixed Berry Loaf Cake - a light, tender, vanilla-flecked and berry-studded loaf.|

I said I was obsessed with whole wheat pastry flour, and I wasn’t kidding. I’m also obsessed with coconut oil, roasted berries, and all things vanilla that I can possibly add to a recipe. This bread – loaf cake – whatever you want to call it, makes all those obsessions completely logical. Favorite quick bread […]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins - fluffy strawberry-studded muffins stuffed with a sweet cream cheese filling and topped with a light crumble topping. |

Kid you not, these strawberry cream cheese muffins are one year in the making. When it comes to food and recipes, I’m constantly on a million different mental tracks, which means that it can occasionally take months for a recipe to go from conceptualized to in-progress to finalized. After making these muffins again this week, […]

Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade Cooler

Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade Cooler - a tart-but-sweet, bubbly, and refreshing summer drink perfect for all ages. |

 I love California so much, but right about now I think I need to be living along the coast, rather than smack-dab in the middle where 100+++°F dry heat is basically the forecast of the day, every day. Stepping outside for more than a few seconds is literally like trying to torture yourself. The only […]

Berries and Cream Parfaits with Graham Cracker Crumble  - a light, easy-to-make, and refreshing no-bake dessert that's perfect for summer entertaining. |

Today’s recipe should be accompanied by a photo of a seriously adorable little two-year old boy helping devour one of these cutesie parfaits whilst showing off his heart-melting smiles and signature goofy character. It makes me sad that I missed watching him eat this by the spoonful, but I’ve already been able to tell that […]

Strawberry Basil Galette with Basil Whipped Cream | #dessert #strawberries

I have to admit that when I started making this galette, I was totally scared it would be a flop. I know that the whole strawberry basil thing is a thing – as in this isn’t just some completely random combination of flavors I decided to put together – but trying it was actually a first for […]

Happy Memorial Day / day off / long weekend! Whoop! Tell me you have 5 minutes to spare today, right? Take those 5 minutes and make yourself this: Consider it an order if it makes you feel better. ;) I have to confess that I’ve become sort of enamored with cocktail-making ever since I made […]
