Brussels Sprout Latke Recipe

My affinity for Brussels sprouts is not a secret. I recently shared a skewered and roasted recipe for Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pine Nuts and Parmesan. So when it came time to experiment with latkes I could not resist including this favorite seasonal ingredient into the mix.


Roasted Persimmon & Brie Salad

For some reason, sometime around September, I stop eating salads. I have it in my head that they are a summer thing. Why? I do not know. So I promised myself, that this year, I would enjoy salads throughout the year. Here is my first one--I'm a little late. But that is okay, this roasted persimmon salad is worth waiting for!


Ricotta Stuffed Sweet Potato Pancakes

It's the day after Thanksgiving. You might be getting up at 3AM to stampede through Best Buy for that brand-new-tv-your-partner-must-have-for-Christmas, or you just might spend the day lounging around. Either way, this recipe is a good place to start. It's full of flavor, decadent and bound to be a favorite.

How To Carve A Pumpkin

Nothing quite embodies the spirit of Halloween like the Jack-o'-Lantern does. Creepy or funny, creative or classic, the carved gourd is more than just simple holiday decor. It's also a symbol of fall harvest and that winter will soon be amongst us. But did you know, the pumpkin was not the original carved vegetable for this time of year--it was the turnip!

Pomegranate Limeade Popsicle

Pomegranate Limeade Popsicle Recipe

Like I said in my Fig and Sour Cream Popsicle recipe, popsicles are my new favorite food to make. I just love how creative I can be with them. I had been looking forward to pomegranate season as I didn't really use them in recipes at all last year. So the idea of freezing them to extend the season was of interest to me. And look how they turned out! The seeds inside the popsicle are just gorgeous, right?

Creamy Avocado Pesto Recipe

Creamy Avocado Pesto Recipe

If you are anything like me, you can never eat too much avocado. Sliced, diced or mashed, I put the fruit in or on practically everything. That said, this was my first time putting it on pasta. I was a bit nervous at first. I didn't want it to resemble guacamole on pasta. Luckily, it didn't. It was creamy and full of flavor.
