How to Make Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee Concentrate

Posted on Friday, April 4, 2014 in Beverages

Ahh. Iced coffee. Deep, rich, cool, and creamy. Even chocolaty. There’s nothing like it. And it’s so easy (and inexpensive!) to make at home. I even created a handy-dandy little infographic to show just HOW easy and inexpensive!

How To Make Almond Butter

How To Make Almond Butter

Posted on Saturday, February 22, 2014 in Foundations

It’s a pretty sure bet that just about anything I post here is something I’m currently obsessing over. And almond butter is absolutely no exception. I am ob-sessed. I’ve also been making my own almond milk and almond coffee creamer (stay tuned for that recipe). But almond butter, oh my lanta. So many flavors, so many possibilities. I’ve got a couple of variations (vanilla! espresso!) up my sleeve, but I thought I’d start at the very beginning.

This is the year, my friends. This is the year you’re going to do it. You’re going to put aside the can opener, step away from the kitchen counter with purpose, and stride toward the stove top.

Posted on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 in Foundations, Popular

My posting schedule is all out of whack. Usually on Wednesdays, I post a One Dish Two Ways recipe. I’m probably the only one who notices, but it feels really weird to share something else – like, say, how to make granola.

But my posting schedule is out of whack because life is out of whack (not bad out of whack, just out of whack), and when life is out of whack, I usually whip up some homemade granola. (Sorry. That’s a lot of out-of-whacks.)

How to Make a Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Posted on Friday, April 12, 2013 in Foundations

When I was pregnant with our daughter, grilled cheese sandwiches were one of the few foods I could stomach. My guy would dutifully break out the electric griddle and, just about a half hour later, emerge from the kitchen with an ooey, gooey, toasty square of pure bliss.

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash Two Different Ways – in the Microwave or in the Oven

Posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2012 in Foundations

Spaghetti squash is pretty much my favorite of the winter bunch. It’s versatile, delicious, healthy, and easy – quadruple win. I’ve got a few spaghetti squash recipes in the pipeline – stay tuned for those – but today, in the spirit of The Sound of Music, ~let’s start at the very beginning~. (Gosh, I really need to watch that movie again. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve suffered the “So Long, Farewell” earworm.)

Anyway, today I’m sharing two different ways to prepare spaghetti squash – either in the microwave, or in the oven.
