Persimmon and Burrata Salad

A creamy, crisp, fruity, and oh-so-satisfying dish that is a fantastic ode to Autumn | #recipe

This is a dish I’ve been dreaming about in one form or another for years… Seriously. A couple of years ago I wrote down “persimmon + burrata?” in my recipe idea notes. Every once in a while I would see it and remember that I wanted to try it, but it would never get made. You

Chewy-Nutty White Chocolate Cookies

Super chewy cookies full of roasted mixed nuts and white chocolate | #recipe

I feel like I’ve mastered the chewy, bakery-style cookie. You know the kind…they have just enough toothsome bite, but they aren’t at all crunchy. Yep, these are those!

Thai Sticky Rice with Fresh Mango

This simple Thai dessert is just sweet enough, and totally satisfying---also #vegan | #recipe

Have you ever had a craving for something you’ve never actually had before? …Because that happened to me the other day. I cannot recall ever having sweet sticky rice, in my life, but for whatever reason, I wanted it more than anything! Cue me breaking out my giant, authentic, Thai recipe book that I’m kind of

Caramelized Onion, Bacon, and Blue Cheese Puff Pastry Tart

A crispy, crunchy, creamy, savory tart with hints of sweetness---deeply satisfying! | #recipe

Is there anything better than caramelized onions? Yes…caramelized onions with bacon and puff pastry and blue cheese! I make a LOT of tarts on this blog (see?!), but somehow there aren’t any savory tarts, and that’s a travesty. I also feel like savory tarts and pies are rather Fall-ish, so this is a perfect time to share this

Lavender-Apricot Almond Muffins

Moist, delicate, and unbelievably addictive! | #recipe

I cannot even believe September is over. Suddenly it’s October, and Fall, and all that should be on my mind are pumpkin and sweaters (and believe me, they are), but for some reason I want to make Spring-y things. You guys know my obsession with lavender runs DEEP, and I guess I was just craving

Chicken and Fig Quesadillas

These chicken and fig quesadillas are savory, sweet, and super-duper cheesy! | #recipe

More figs :O (and more quesadillas!) Last fig recipe for a while—I promise…I think? LOL This is one of those recipes, that is like the tastiest thing on the Earth, but the pictures don’t come close to doing it justice. Why does that have to happen 🙁 Guess you’re just going to have to take my

Too Easy: Nutty Fig Smoothies

These super simple to make smoothies kinda have a grown-up PB&J flavor to 'em! | #recipe

You know what’s awkward? I was about to start this post singing that Barney & Friends PB&J song, and then realized I’ve actually already done that… How. How have I *already* started a post with a Barney song?! And then knew enough about myself to search my own blog for the lyrics just to see if

Fig and Tomato Orzo Salad

Juicy tomatoes, sweet figs, bold blue cheese, fresh herbs, and crunchy walnuts come together with a sticky drizzle of balsamic glaze, to create a Summer picnic, pasta salad masterpiece. | #recipe

I feel like I say this about any in-season produce item, but I’m in love with figs. I think I literally jumped for joy when I saw them start to show up at markets and grocery stores a few weeks back. Yeah…I truly do get that excited about food. You know who else is obsessed
