Raspberry Nutella Bread Pudding and Valentine’s Brunch

Raspberry Nutella Bread Pudding and Valentine’s Brunch

Bread Pudding is another dish that I don’t think I ever had growing up. I was always more of a french toast fan. But now that I have had bread pudding, I realized that 1) its pretty similar to french toast, and 2) its way […]

Pear Chai & Caramel Crisp

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 […]

Honeynut Squash Tacos with Pear Radicchio Slaw

Honeynut Squash Tacos with Pear Radicchio Slaw

Does anyone ever get sick of tacos? Not me! It’s likely to do with the fact that I am the opposite of a taco purist (who do you call the opposite?). I love coming up with new taco combinations and I am often inspired by […]

Grilled Brie & Plums

Grilled Brie & Plums

Grilled Brie. It sounds bizarre right? But let me tell you, once you try it you might not want to have brie any other way. Especially when you are topping it with tart juicy plums. It’s the perfect balance of sweet, creamy, and tart.

Summer Squash Lattice Galette
