Challah French Toast with Persimmon & Pear

Challah French Toast with Persimmon & Pear

Growing up, I could not resist a good French toast whenever we went out for breakfast. Its sort of the best of both worlds in my opinion, eggs, bread, and something sweet. However, in college, weekend breakfasts served a different purpose and I strayed from […]

Persimmon Winter Salsa

Persimmon Winter Salsa

Winter fruits do not get enough credit! Berries and stone fruits are great, but persimmon, pomegranate, and pairs are pretty perfect! Fruit is much needed during the winter to add some freshness to hearty soups and stews. Persimmons make for a great salsa as they […]

Persimmons Yogurt Parfait

Persimmons Yogurt Parfait

I think, I learned an important lesson about persimmons last week. Haiycha’s in particular must be very ripe before you eat them! I couldn’t figure out what was off when I was cooking last week, but after having some today, that must have been the […]

Persimmon Rose Pastry

Persimmon Rose Pastry

Apple rose pastries were trending throughout my Instagram feed last year. This year, I am reviving this easy pastry by adding persimmons to the mix. Persimmons are a beloved holiday fruit, but pretty difficult to find on the east coast, due to a short fleeting […]

Featured Ingredient: Persimmons

Featured Ingredient: Persimmons

Persimmons always feel like a special treat on the east coast. They are beautiful to photograph, but taste can be hit or miss for some people, that’s likely because you can only eat some of them when they are perfectly ripe. There are two types […]

I haven’t stopped eating in two days and there is no end in sight. And today’s recipe is perfect way to use up all your leftover squash! I have been missing out on the whole shakshuka/eggs in purgatory trend, given that I cannot stand tomato […]

Pumpkin Hazelnut Crumble

Pumpkin Hazelnut Crumble

It dawned on me last week, why is pumpkin pie, the only way pumpkin is served on thanksgiving. What about pumpkin crisps, crumbles, or cobblers. I find it hard to believe that no one wants to eat any of those? So I set out to […]

Apple, Caramelized Onion & Cheddar Stuffing

Apple, Caramelized Onion & Cheddar Stuffing

Since discovering stuffing last year, the kind that doesn’t come in a box and doesn’t contain celery, that is, I have been counting down the days until I could create another. Actually, I just came up with this idea last week, but it’s genius if […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Almond Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Almond Crisp

Strawberry and Rhubarb go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly! And I can’t share any rhubarb recipes without creating some version of a pie! I typically prefer to bake fruit crisps, over pies, ones that are heavy on fruit and light on butter. Even still […]

Cherry Acai Bowl

Cherry Acai Bowl

Acai has been praised has a superfood, packed with antioxidants, polyphenols, and flavanoids. However, Acai has been found to have no more nutritional benefits than similar fruits like blueberries. Acai do however have mono and polyunsaturated fats which makes them more filling than traditional fruits. […]
