Brown Butter Peach and Cherry Cobbler

What a week it’s been! We landed back in San Francisco on Monday afternoon after spending a wonderful week up in Vancouver, BC with the kids. It was my first time there, and I was blown away by what a great city it is. I posted lots of pictures on Instagram of our adventures up there, so definitely check them out if you’re planning a visit! Pretty much as soon as we got back, I jumped right into prepping and shooting the cover for The New Yiddish Kitchen, which releases in March 2016. (But all of the photos need to be turned in by mid-July! Ack!). I shot all of the photos for The...

Blueberry Lemon Tart

I bought ingredients to make popsicles the other day. My plan was to make summery, fruity popsicles with flavors like strawberry and blueberry and horchata, maybe even layered to make a real foods version of a Bomb Pop. Perfect for Memorial Day weekend! And then I started seeing them pop (heh) up all over on social media and decided that there were plenty of good popsicle recipes out there** already. Plus, my freezer’s way too full. And then the kids ate the strawberries, sealing the deal. I’m not complaining because they also made whipped cream to go with them and offered me a...

Hazelnut Brown Butter Chocolate Hearts

It’s like I don’t even know who I am anymore. Somehow, I’ve managed to obtain multiple heart shaped baking items; a donut pan, cake molds, and candy molds. I blame being a food blogger. I see these things and have visions of cutesy Valentine’s Day blog posts and just have to have them. Well, I put at least one of the above silly items to good use this week. I knew I had to make some kind of decadent chocolatey treat, and chocolate + brown butter + hazelnuts + sea salt just felt right. I went sort of classic candy mode on these; meaning I added a little sugar. I tried...

Almost Oatmeal Cookies from Everyday Grain-Free Baking

 I’m so happy to have Kelly of The Nourishing Home as a special guest today sharing her delectable recipe for grain-free “oatmeal” cookies. It’s part of a collection of over 100 irresistible grain-free, starch-free and dairy-free recipes from her new published cookbook – Everyday Grain-Free Baking! I received an advance copy of Kelly’s new book, and am really looking forward to baking from it. The only reason I haven’t busted out the baking supplies yet is because I’m trying reeeeeally hard to keep it under control with the sugar this month. Next month, though- it’s...

Paleo White Christmas – Guest post by The MerryMaker Sisters

I’m thrilled to have the lovely Emma and Carla of The Merry Maker Sisters guest blogging here today! They are sharing a fab recipe for Paleo White Christmas, which would have been posted last week if I was better at blogging and running a business at the same time. Clearly, I am not! But this recipe is still a stellar one, and a great way to continue to indulge in holiday treats without completely falling off the Paleo wagon. And I bet it would be a welcome additional to your New Year’s Eve bash!   We’re Emma and Carla Papas from Australia, aka ‘The Merrymaker Sisters’ and...
