Chocolate Ginger Pear Crisp

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Pete and I had 24 hours to ourselves courtesy of Pia and Coco’s play practice and my parents. It was blissful and involved 12 hours of badly needed sleep. My God we are getting old. And now I am going to cook all day, watch the Seahawks […]

Spinach, Bacon, Pear and Candied Pecan Salad

I am posting this on the heels of a mini-reunion with a bunch of my college girlfriends- some of whom I haven’t seen since we graduated. I hate to admit that it has been quite a while. Like I don’t think I’m aging in my own head- except for when I look in magnifying mirrors, […]

Bourbon Maple Pecan Apple Cider Float

So yesterday was Coco’s 5th birthday. I spent some time crying because I can’t stop freaking out about how big she is getting and she can’t get big because she is my baby. Then I got cooking. She wanted a “Family Taco Party” to follow up her “Friends Unicorn Themed Cooking Party” from this last […]

Caramelized Onion Whipped Sweet Potatoes (vegan)

Ohhh-emmmm-geeeee. I am so tired after such a long, busy weekend. On Friday night I threw a dinner party that I donated to an auction this past year. You can see pictures of the table here and here. I made roasted carrot soup, this kale salad, braised pork and this polenta. This was dessert- only […]

Skillet Baked Potatoes with Chili Garlic and Rosemary Oil

I am a stuffing and mashed potato kind of girl. Now that is going to cause me a tad bit of heartache this year, as I grieve the loss of pounds and pounds of butter and brioche, but it has certainly pushed me to expand my Thanksgiving repetoir. While mashed potatoes will still grace our […]

Vegan Maple Pecan Ice Cream

How was your weekend? It was very quite around here. Like we have been going to sleep somewhere between 7:45 and 9:15 at night! How did this happen!??? I think all of the traveling over the last few weeks really tanked me. Or it is the horrific weather that we have been experiencing around here. […]

These tacos are pretty much the best thing you have ever had. And that is what made them so fitting for this special occasion.
