I picked these beauties last week. Golden Sunburst. Warm from the sun, fresh from the vine. They tasted like candy! Summer calls for gazpacho. I have many recipes I adore – Mango Gazpacho, Watermelon Gazpacho and this Golden Gazpacho. I’ve used all kinds of tomatoes in this recipe, so just let it be a guide. […]
Rough-puff is puff pastry for cheaters – and I’m all about it. When the option is thawing puff pastry from a box or making laminated dough from scratch, I typically head for the freezer section. But, when there’s this middlin’ option, where I can make it myself with results that are good (great!) enough for dinner – I’m in. Read more for the recipe!
In 2018, I closed Flagstone Pantry to relocate to Washington, D.C. – again. I’ve had a little time to reflect on my experience owning and operating Flagstone Pantry, which I’ve concluded was equal parts rewarding, challenging, fun and terrifying. Being featured on Cooking Channel’s Cheap Eats: Santa Barbara for my Cowboy Cooking was simply the […]

At summer gatherings, we like serving colorful gazpachos in shot glasses as appetizers. Here are […]

This recipe makes for a delightful breakfast or brunch item. I almost always adapt recipes to include healthful ingredients I regularly use. For example, in this recipe, I substitute whole wheat pastry flour for all-purpose flour and use maple syrup in place of brown sugar.

Our new Vegan Power Salad is loaded with Brussels sprouts, quinoa, butternut squash, fresh apple, and walnuts. We’ve also paired our Turkey Hummus and Mediterranean Wraps with fresh greens. […]
Oh, January. It gets such a bad rap. Resolutions almost always feel like punishment for not having acted on/gotten to/asked about/prioritized someone or something in the past year. Often, it’s our diet that takes a lashing. January makes it feel punitive to eat healthy, drink more water and get active, when actually – it feels […]

We brought back an addition to our Thanksgiving menu this year – Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes! This recipe just goes to show that potato dishes need not be laden with butter, brown sugar and cream to be super yummy. Caramelized shallots and fresh rosemary let the sweet potatoes shine in this dish. So good – and […]
