Chipotle Pecan Pesto

I’ve been spending a lot of time in Austin lately and definitely not complaining about it. The vegan food scene there is amazing! I would never live there, but having it an hour away is absolutely perfect. A few weeks ago, I went to Bouldin Creek for brunch and had a burger with this wonderful…

Sweet Tarts Smoothie

I didn’t intend to make Sweet Tarts in the blender this morning, but here we are. Simple, healthy, delicious, quick, and energizing, what more can you ask for in a breakfast? Maybe something warm on a cold morning, but that’s what baked oatmeal is for! RECIPE 2/3 cup of raspberries Half of a blood orange, peeled…

Roasted Garlic Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Day 7 of the damn sweet potatoes and I can safely say that I hate them. I miss cooking a variety of foods. I miss popcorn. I hate sweet potatoes. That being said, I am really digging these mashed potatoes. I roasted a head of garlic in the air fryer at 400°F for about 20…

Sweet Potato Tikki

I didn’t really dig Indian food as a child, but there were a few exceptions. Aloo tikki, rajma, chaat, and chana masala along with kajur burfi. Basically potato patties, red beans, no way to describe chaat other than maybe Indian nachos, chickpeas, and cashew fudge. Now I’m hungry! Since I’m doing 10 days of sweet…

Masala Chai Oatmeal

This isn’t your average oatmeal. This isn’t that Anglocized Oprah Starbucks sugar bomb either. This is warm, spiced oatmeal. Masala means spice mix and masala chai is a spiced tea originating in India. Sometimes I steep a bag of black tea with the oatmeal, but that’s so extra and this tastes great without it. Make…

Queso Blanco

Queso blanco has always been a personal favorite. It’s great with chips, on nachos, chili, enchiladas, as a dip for veggies or appetizers. Smother a burrito or chimichanga with it to take your meal to the next level. I have only listed a small amount of salt as pickled jalapenos are often salty, so start…

Baked Oatmeal

There has been a trend around here lately. Work keeps falling through and it’s been cold. Naturally, I’m drawn to the kitchen to keep warm. Since I was planning on working today, but now I’m home, why not have a fun, warm breakfast? It’s 30° outside right now so something warm sounds wonderful. This weather…

Delicata Pie

I recently became obsessed with delicata squash. It’s fantastic on its own. It tastes almost like caramel. With the holidays approaching, I wanted to try my hand at a pie and I knew this would be the perfect filling! It reminds me of butterscotch. Don’t toss the roasted pulp and seeds. They’re nature’s granola.  …

Country-Fried Brussel Sprouts with Cream Gravy

I really love my produce subscription. I legit look forward to every other Tuesday when my rainbow-filled treasure chest arrives. This Tuesday, I received the unfortunate gift of brussel sprouts. Definitely not my favorite. I’m not one to waste food so I had to get creative. What would any good Southerner do with something they…

Red Enchilada Sauce

I’ve always been more of a tomatillo gal, that is until I decided to make my own red sauce for enchiladas. It’s really simple and freezes well, so make a double batch! Don’t skip any of the steps and definitely use dried, whole chiles. I used arbol, hatch, and Anaheim, but you can use whatever…
