Jammy blueberry puree runs through the middle of this blueberry streusel coffee cake, and the crumble topping is incredibly rich and buttery. So good! Blueberry season is almost upon us! Now of course we could go the normal route and simply eat the berries straight off the bush — trust me, there will be plenty of that, especially if my children are involved in the picking process — but personally, I love cooking and baking with blueberries....
Black bean burgers. We've all had them, and we've all sighed in exasperated disappointment after taking that first bite. These are different. They're epic (not an exaggeration). Like, forget craving beef burgers, you will legit want to make these for the sake of eating them over and over again. Food Advertising by And for what it's worth, beef burgers are high up on my list of foods that I simply would not, could not live without....
Amidst all the craziness that comes along with the end of the school year and extracurricular activities (dance recitals, final t-ball games, saying goodbye to teachers you've come to love), I'm trying to find the joy. And as it turns out, lemon poppyseed muffins bring me a great deal of joy. I don't know why, but I tend to shy away from desserts with poppyseed. It is first and foremost part of a very important lineup...
These mini blueberry galettes are best served piping hot with a generous scoop of ice cream. This is the easiest, tastiest fresh blueberry dessert you'll make all summer! The unofficial start of summer is here! Bring on lazy summer nights spent grilling on the patio, searching for fireflies at sunset with the kids, and hoping that even though it'll set us back over $20, the ice cream truck comes rolling down our street every single...
Here we are on day 3 of plant-based eating and going strong! I'm sure this is 90% psychological, but I'm energetic, sleeping better, in a great mood, and feel... normal. I'm not sure how else to describe it. And it's partially thanks in part to these avotacos (name credit goes to my highly intelligent, sometimes creative, usually not-at-all-funny husband), of which I've eaten at least 47. They're shockingly filling and deceptively good. Food Advertising by Spoiler alert:...
Helloooo, grilling season! I realize that's a confusing way to start a post about a dessert that isn't even grilled, but bear with me. Is there anything more summer appropriate than a huge slice of key lime pie on an otherwise unbearably hot day? Luckily, yes. Key lime cheesecake parfaits! No slicing, no sharing, no baking! I'm pretty much all over these and want you to be too. Okay, so do we go for key limes...
This simple vanilla cake is a two layer cake topped with mascarpone buttercream frosting and fresh strawberries. It's so easy to make, but looks stunning! Our April Instagram takeover is here! I've collaborated with a group of food photographers, stylists, and recipe developers around a single theme, and this month we're bringing you the best of the best recipes featuring everyone's favorite little berry: strawberries. Say hello to my vanilla two layer cake with mascarpone...
Oh hey, spring! Look who finally showed up to the party. You may not know this about me, but I am a lover of all almond-flavored desserts. Ice cream, croissants, baked french toast -- like, can't live without them. And there's this almond cake at Whole Foods that holy moly I cannot get enough of. I've gotta try my hand at recreating that next... Needless to say, both almond paste and extract are staples in my...
Whether I'd like to admit it or not, my life has been more chaotic than calm recently, and I am doing everything within my power to realign the stars and focus. Does anyone else feel this way after a vacation? You left with both feet on the ground, but upon returning you're balancing everything on one foot. How am I supposed to recover? Who has actual time after a vacation to spend relaxing or playing catch...
Are you there spring? It's me, Ari. I come in peace. Or rather, with a peace offering. If I leave these pear tartlets (pancetta! blue cheese! honey!) on your door step, will you kindly kick winter out? Perhaps I'm looking for an excuse to declutter and purge the house because SPRING CLEANING IS A REAL THING, but beyond that I need warmer weather. Like, stat. And you're the only one who can help. Have I...
