Cucumber Cilantro Tonic

Now, more than ever, self-care is so important! My Cucumber Cilantro Tonic will make you feel like you're having a day at the spa, with an added splash of tequila 😉. There's something about the blend of cucumber, lime juice, and cilantro that puts my whole body at...

Kumquat Bellini

Kumquat Bellini

Kumquats are a seasonal fall and winter fruit but many of us never use them in cooking! What do you do with them anyway?  I’ve developed these recipes that I know you’ll love. This grape-sized fruit is in the citrus family.  They have a hint of sweetness. You can eat...

Grilled Artichokes with Remoulade

Grilled Artichokes with Remoulade

Grilled artichokes are one of life's simple pleasures. Artichokes can be so much fun to eat! I brush them with butter and garlic and grill them to get a wonderful smoky flavor. You can't have grilled artichokes without a rich, tangy dipping sauce like remoulade! Since...

Cornish Hens with Wild Rice, Leeks, and Mushrooms

Cornish Hens with Wild Rice, Leeks, and Mushrooms

I love to cook with Cornish hens. The taste is very similar to chicken, but slightly more delicate and tender. For a beautiful main dish to serve your guests, I love to stuff Cornish hens with a medley of wild rice, mushrooms, herbs, and toasted almonds. The rice...

Blackberry Crème Brûlée

Blackberry Crème Brûlée

If you really want to impress your dinner guests, torch your crème brûlée right at the table! This classic French treat, aka burnt cream, is a rich custard topped with hardened caramelized sugar. The best part about eating crème brûlée is cracking through that layer...

Passover Macaroons

Passover Macaroons

Coconut macaroons are the quintessential passover dessert! Not to be confused with the French-style pastry made with almond meal,  coconut macaroons are baked with shredded coconut, beaten egg whites, and sweetened condensed milk. They're naturally gluten-free which...
