Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons – What a Difference an “O” Makes

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) I’ve always found it amusing that macaroons, which are one of the easiest cookies ever, has the same name, give or take an “o,” as the famously difficult macaron. Even though they have the same origin, which the Italian word maccarone (also where we get macaroni), they couldn’t be more different in texture, as well as the skill they require. Since we did (and totally nailed) the hard one, I figured I should do the easy one, especially since I just got back from vacation, and something simple seemed like a really good idea. Speaking of easy, using sweetened …read more

California Avocado White Bean Dip

By Erin Alderson Post sponsored by California Avocados. See below for more details.
When someone asks me about my background, I think they assume I’ll say something about photography or cooking. While I’ve done both for over a decade now, I actually started in music. I have two degrees, geared towards music education and I’m a bassoonist by trade. I love everything about music but I found my love was better as a consumer (and occasional performer).
One thing hardly anyone knows about me: I was a HUGE ska fan in high school. Beyond bassoon, I’m a saxophonist. It was my first instrument and it …read more

10 Ways Use a Pint of Berries This Summer

By Emma Christensen Blueberries! Strawberries! Raspberries! Just give me ALL the berries!
The love for sweet, ripe, juicy berries and other fruits has always been strong in my family — my mom often says that the one thing she could be sure my brother and I would eat when we were kids was the fruit salad.
For me, the farmers’ market this time of year is like walking into a candy store. So many choices. So little time.

Low-carb cauliflower hummus

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche It’s another low-carb recipe using the magic that is cauliflower! I’m sure you’ve noticed that I don’t follow a low-carb diet (potato in your noodles, anyone?), but I do love to experiment with all kinds of recipes, and using cauliflower to create a low-carb version of an old favourite is something I’ve done several times before – cauliflower tabbouleh, cauliflower tortillas, cauliflower risotto… to name but a few. This low-carb cauliflower hummus is another amazing, easy way to reduce your carbs, and sneak an extra veggie into your diet while you’re at it.

Just a quick disclaimer, before I get stuck …read more

Breakfast Fried Grits with Sausage, Onion and Cheddar Cheese

By Irvin Looking for a make-ahead breakfast or brunch recipe? These breakfast fried grits are loaded with sausage, onions and cheddar cheese. (Jump directly to the recipe.)

It’s been like the 1990s are back in my household as of late. It all started when I realized all the bands and artists that I listened to in college were doing reunions and recording new albums or re-releasing 25-year anniversary version of their classic albums. From Liz Phair’s Exile to Guyville to the Breeders and Belly reforming in their classic lineup and releasing new albums, to the third act of Tracey Thorn’s musical career (she’s …read more

Summer Vegetarian Paella

By Erin Alderson This recipe is an update from an older recipe. Over the years I’ve tinkered very slightly but I felt this vegetarian paella deserved a little refresh. Don’t be confused, it’s not a ratatouille- I just love the look of the layered vegetables. Also, this is not a traditional paella. Quite a bite is different (including the type of rice used) but it’s a paella in spirit.
A couple notes. You will see I partially precook the rice. I’ve never had luck with brown rice cooking in tomato-based liquids (and from comments I received, neither have a lot of people). Since I …read more

The lemony garlicky dressing is also flavorful enough to stand up to olives and feta, but it doesn’t overpower the more delicately flavored ingredients such as cucumber and tomato.

Basil and goat’s cheese crostini with balsamic blackberry compote

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche I’ll get to this recipe in a moment – these basil and goat’s cheese crostini, topped with a simple balsamic red onion and blackberry compote, are creamy and sweet and crunchy and all kinds of other things, and I have a lot to say about them. But first I want to talk about the blackberries themselves.

A few weeks ago, I was invited down to a blackberry farm in the middle of the stunning Kent countryside (and it was a sunny day too, which made everything look even more beautiful) to learn all about how these blackberries are grown. They’re Driscoll’s …read more
