Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza

Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Pizza

Puff pastry pizzas make a fabulous dinner or party appetizer, and it’s very low maintenance to make. The puff pastry makes such a flaky and buttery crust. Although you could do a variety of toppings (I think a caprese version with cherry tomatoes and basil would be perfect in the summer), this particular variety is perfect…

Smoked Duck Hash

Smoked Duck Hash

“Cooking the ducks” by making some duck themed meal became a thing for us last hockey season when the Kings played the Ducks in the playoffs. Now any time we watch the Kings play the Ducks, we have to have a meal featuring duck in some way shape or form. When the Kings and the…

Browned Butter Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Browned Butter Roasted Brussels Sprouts

We made these delicious brussels sprouts for Thanksgiving dinner, but they were so simple that we’ll probably make them again for Christmas or even just a regular dinner. Who would have thought that we’d be excited to eat brussels sprouts, but they seem to be a trendy menu item at a lot of restaurants (the…

Gingerbread Stout Loaf

Gingerbread Stout Loaf

This loaf cake was inspired by one we sampled at The Sycamore Kitchen awhile back, and I knew I’d have to recreate it come the holiday season. The stout (instead of buttermilk) really intensified the deep, dark molasses flavor. I was a little worried swapping out the buttermilk in favor of stout that the texture…

Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread Cookies

The very first time I made gingerbread cookies from scratch, it was quite the disaster. I randomly searched for a gingerbread recipe on the internet and decided upon this one entitled “The Most Wonderful Gingerbread Cookies.” Sold. These are definitely some of the best gingerbread cookies that I’ve ever had. I even upped the ginger content…

Peppermint Sugar Cookies

Peppermint Sugar Cookies

It’s cookie season! I don’t think I got around to baking gingerbread or sugar cookies last Christmas, so when it was time to bake for a holiday lab get-together, I jumped at the opportunity. In keeping with my theme of trying to put a spin on whatever recipe I make (even if it’s just a…

White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Silly me has been out of my baking routine lately, so I forgot to take a single picture of these cookies. I almost thought about “repurposing” an old cookie photograph, but decided against it. Sigh. I really wish I had taken a picture because these cookies came out of the oven looking perfect (not something…

Spinach and Artichoke Tortellini Soup

Spinach and Artichoke Tortellini Soup

We’ve been eating crazy amounts of spinach lately. For the last few weeks, most mornings for breakfast, we’ve been drinking green smoothies for breakfast. Dustin was skeptical about the potential deliciousness of putting spinach in a smoothie, but has since perfected a version with bananas, honey, raspberries, mangoes, fresh orange juice, and coconut milk (another…

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Let’s face it. It will never be really be soup weather where I live, so I have to get my fill of warm, comforting soups when I’m wearing T-shirts and pretending it’s cold. I’ve previously made a more gourmet version of buffalo chicken soup with blue cheese biscuits and all, but I wanted a more everyday…

Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Although we’ve made jalapeño chicken popper sandwiches that might be a little more true to the spirit of a jalapeño popper, but these burgers are lightly spicy from jalapeños with lots of creamy cheesy goodness− all of the best parts of a jalapeño popper. Perfect for grilling season when it is too hot to turn…
