Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I’ve been tinkering with this recipe for awhile and this is my favorite version. I’m happy that it uses the entire can of pumpkin because I don’t love having can leftovers lingering in the fridge. I’m also pleased that I was able to cut back […]

Ancho Chili Chocolate Pecan Pie

Ancho Chili Chocolate Pecan Pie

This is our go-to pie.  No.  It isn’t sugar-free or dairy-free or wheat-free, but we still eat it guilt-free once a year and it is pretty much the only pie we crave.  The ancho chili brings out the flavor of the chocolate, kind of like […]

Flourless Chocolate Torte

Flourless Chocolate Torte

Mmmm… Thank you King Arthur Flour for this recipe without any…flour!  ( I actually do like their flour, but the Double Dutch Cocoa Powder is what really does it for me.)  

Moroccan Style Salsa Chicken

Moroccan Style Salsa Chicken

This recipe is an old favorite that our friend Catherine shared with us years ago. It’s a great way to use up leftover salsas that are lingering in your fridge–mixing different types is fine. In the picture it’s served over quinoa. In the past we’ve […]

Bacon, Tomato, and Mayo

This was so simple and good. I really miss BLT’s since I stopped eating much bread. I’ve used a lettuce leaf as the bread in the past, but today I just sliced some yummy tomatoes from the garden, sprinkled on salt and pepper, dabbed a […]

Fresh Berry Easter Egg Cake

Fresh Berry Easter Egg Cake

A few summers ago we were lucky enough to have our friends the Auernigs’ with us for the fourth of July at the beach. It was such a memorable fourth and that was partly because of the Flag version of this cake that Anne showed […]

Butternut Bisque

Butternut Bisque

My family and I really love Butternut Bisque made with full-fat coconut milk. When squash is in season, I make it every other week or so. It’s nourishing and bright and fairly easy to make. If I’m out of full-fat coconut milk, I will use […]

Rustic Beef Pot Pie

Rustic Beef Pot Pie

Usually  I miss Pi day altogether and just read about all the fun things other people have done.  This year I was determined to do something and had planned beef pot pie with our favorite Ancho Chili Fudge Pie for dessert. I was pretty tired from […]

Cocoa Rubbed Pork Roast

Cocoa Rubbed Pork Roast

Last summer we were at our family cabin and had invited friends up for dinner and a hike.  I planned to make pork roast(s) for everyone. The only problem was,  I wasn’t sure how I wanted to cook them.  Spice box to the rescue! While packing I […]
