My love of kabocha continues. and I keep finding new things to do with it. I think I ate this sandwich every day for a week. Yep, probably went through … six kabocha in five days?
Last night I was out of sandwich rolls so I made a kabocha rice bowl with all of these ingredients.
After several weeks of bummer avocados, [click to continue…]
First day of Spring. St Paddy’s Day. SXSW. March Madness.
…and for the math nerd in me, Pi Day.
Longtime readers know I celebrate each year. Always with pie, usually shaped into Pi.
I do have a pie coming up for you all, and it is good.
In the meantime, to kick off the month I have a Pie Collection for Pi Day – sweet, savory, pie bites and pizza pies included.
I think I need to make these Spicy Potato Lentil Pies this weekend…

February is Heart Health Month. I am finishing the month with heart healthy raspberries – I partnered with Driscoll’s Berries and made a recipe around my favorite berry of theirs. Raspberries are a great source of fiber and vitamin c, and have been deemed heart-healthy by the American Heart Association.
They happen to be my favorite fruit. I can and have enjoyed an entire pint in one
I have had the idea for this pie for some time now – I envisioned a pie with a crumble topping, like a danish. My favorite part [click to continue…]
Some of you know I have a massive cookbook collection. I like to sit and read them like novels. I curl up on the couch with the dachshunds, a cup of green tea, and some dedicated time to savor a book – from beginning to end. I look at the photos and recipe choices on the first pass through, then go back and read more thoroughly the recipes that caught my eye.
…like just about every recipe in Angela’s brand new The Oh She Glows Cookbook.
Angela was one of the first blogs I read, years ago. I had a twitter account before I had a blog, and got to know her as an Oh She Glows reader and through tweets. Her blog recipes were among my favorites, as they are not only creative, but always foolproof and delicious. Angela definitely makes plant based and vegan an incredibly flavorful experience.
From the book, the first recipe I made was [click to continue…]
Yaaay for an extended weekend, yaaay!
Jason was out of town all week last week, flying back home late Thursday night. He took Friday off and we spent the day together, then hosted a small Valentines Day party with 12 of our favorite people at a private karaoke room place. SO fun.
My brother and I capped off the evening by singing Bohemian Rhapsody. Glorious.

Do you want to guess how many times I typed caramelized onion rocky road bark?
Every time, that’s how many times. Apparently I love caramelized onions so much that my typing hands have a memory for them.
Mmm, they are good.
…and so are caramelized almonds. A totally different technique to make those, but just like a pan of caramelized onions, I could stand at the kitchen counter and eat a whole pan of these almonds.
Onions almonds onions almonds – confused yet?
During the holidays, I ordered several cases of [click to continue…]
Happy Monday everyone! Meatless Monday, at that.
I didn’t know the ingredient for this week until after we were already snowed in. Have you all heard what has been happening in Portland since [click to continue…]
Elle’s friends are spending the weekend cooking her recipes and sharing beautiful stories. If you want to follow along, the hashtag #ElleAPalooza is where you find us.
I mentioned some fundraising – there will be an auction at the end of the month, to benefit her family – her husband, four kids and beloved animals. There will soon be more information on the Friends of Elle facebook page, and if you feel so inclined, there is a PayPal account for donations.
Elle was an incredibly generous and supportive friend. It warms my heart to read everyone’s words about her now. To see this amazing community come together in generous support, as this community always does.
Elle’s Raw Cream of Asparagus Soup was a new find for me – not sure how, and quite surprised that this got past my radar. You all know I love cashews, I love asparagus, and I love getting creative with ingredients you would not think to add to a soup.
There are some unique adds that make this soup incredibly flavorful.

You are in our thoughts and hearts, Elle.
