Cinnamon Vanilla Cold Brew Coffee

I cannot survive without caffeine. I mean, I guess I could, but I’d be grumpy and foggy and overall just a complete grouch. In an effort to be more budget friendly and also find alternatives to the free yet really poor quality coffee at my office, the thought occurred: cold press! Well, well, well…I might…

Snow Day Nosh

When the weather outside is frightful, make quiche. Maybe I’ll post a recipe. Maybe I’ll just leave you wondering about all the clean-out-the-fridge goodness I packed into this tasty pie crust.

PSA: Go Eat Cheese from 320 Market + Updates

I interrupt your Saturday night internet browsing to tell you to go eat cheese from 320 Market Cafe. This is an unlikely endorsement considering I’m allergic to milk, but about once a month I indulge in some cheese. I am not really good at selecting cheeses. A lot of friends of mine are good at…

Sloppy Joes featuring Vesper Bros. Signature Tomato Sauce

This recipe is also published on Fig West Chester. A few months ago, some friends and I were sitting around lamenting about food and cooking. My one friend said she loves to cook, but cooking big meals for just her and her daughter seemed silly. I chimed in that I love to cook, but as…

Maple Bacon Cupcakes

Adapted from Maple Cupcakes in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. The concept of the Maple Bacon Cupcake is not original. I didn’t know this until I sat down to write this blog post. A lot of people have made this cupcake, but they seem to just put bacon bits into the batter or they…

Vitamix Refreshing Mint Lemonade

This week, one of my culinary dreams came true. I recently got a full-time job and I did some serious budgeting to be able to buy myself a Vitamix. I have had many battles with my blender in the past, so this Vitamix is truly a dream come true. I have a rare morning off…

Homage to Sunnyside Farms – Banana Ice Cream

When I was a little girl, my family and I would take trips to a place called Sunnyside Farms. It was a farm that had acres of land and stinky cows. Though they did smell, I remember their smell fondly. You couldn’t smell it until you got on that stretch of road that led out-of-town…

Chickpea and Sundried Tomato Basil Salad

AND I’m a liar. No, I’m not a liar. I said I’d be here posting recipes when the mood struck me and it struck, so here I am. Yesterday I went to this Asian Market in Media that sells flowers and produce and other things you’d find at an Asian market. Someone told me about…

Turkeyburger Helper

Sometimes I crave gnarly foods. Today’s craving is Hamburger Helper and the craving hit me on the way to the parking lot. I started a new job and this week I’m in training, so I’ve been dutifully taking my lunches because I don’t know what there is to eat there and when I arrive home…

Deconstructed Chicken Soup with Applewood Smoked Bacon

For the sake of argument, we’re going to pretend like it’s winter here in Media. Anyone who lives in or has visited Pennsylvania or New Jersey this winter knows that we haven’t had anything remotely close to winter weather in a while. There was a freak snow shower on Halloween, but was the worst of…

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

My mom came over yesterday and I fed her. I love having her over because it means I finally have someone to spoil with my culinary adventures. My mom loves lemon poppy-seed muffins, so I revisited an old recipe. The original version is vegan and gluten-free. Welp, I decided to get fancy and not follow…
