Peach Bourbon Cupcakes

As I've talked about in other blog posts my mom tried to instill the love of gardening in me at a young age and I fought it like crazy. When my husband and I finally bought a house, we planted a handful of fruit trees, but the one I was really looking forward to was … Continue reading Peach Bourbon Cupcakes

Fancy Sauce

Fry sauce and fancy sauce both are cut from the same cloth. When my husband and I went to New York one of the first places we went to eat was, Shake Shack. Our idea of fast food burgers were flipped upside down! I feel every region has there notorious burger place. California/west coast has, … Continue reading Fancy Sauce

Fried Green Tomato Po’boy

Growing up, my mom was a big gardener. She'd always ask me to help pull weeds, plant new vegetables, and harvest her crop. She tried to pass on the joy of gardening and how fulfilling it was to grow your own food, but I wanted nothing to do with it! I was very close to … Continue reading Fried Green Tomato Po’boy

Creamy Chicken Taquitos

Lamb Saag

During middle school and high school, one of my best friends was Indian. Every time I'd go to her house, her family would offer to feed me.  They always had curries, saags, goat, everything you'd ever want and they were excellent cooks! My mom really doesn't like curry so Indian food was never and option … Continue reading Lamb Saag

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

He also loves fruit in his dessert which still is not chocolate, usually we agree on a fruit cheesecake to … Continue reading Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Granola

My Grandma was a big collector of recipes, and when she passed, I got her accordion file of all the recipes she collected. Some recipes were in the newspaper dating back to the 60's. She had so many recipes in fact that 10 years ago, my parents asked her for her favorites and they made … Continue reading Granola

Stuffed Figs

I have to admit that I stole this idea from a good friend of my husbands. Although, with a few minor tweeks. She brought these to dinner party  once and we've been knocking them off ever since. These are truly amazing, but figs aren't always in season. So a fig jam on good crusty bread … Continue reading Stuffed Figs

Huckleberry Mojito

It's late Huckleberry season here in Spokane, it's also 5 o'clock! To be honest I came up with this because we had fresh mint from the garden as well as some leftover huckleberry syrup from our Swedish Pancakes that morning. Make a batch of your own syrup and have a signature cocktail for your next … Continue reading Huckleberry Mojito

Caprese Sandwich

Do you know how hard it is for a non-vegetarian to create a vegetarian sandwich that would please the masses, that also is unique and flavorful? It's actually a lot harder than it sounds! When we got involved in working for a food truck, the original list was at least 15 sandwiches long. Out of the … Continue reading Caprese Sandwich
