Blueberry Basil Spritzers

August 8, 2014

Remember last Friday when I teased you with an instagram photo of blueberry basil simple syrup in the works? Yea, I was totally prepping for this killer drink. Basil is completely flooding the farmers market and blueberries (like, the really good kind) have been sticking around longer than usual this year. Take advantage. Load up, […]

Cantaloupe Sorbet

It’s been kinda quiet in these parts this week.  Sorry about that! I’ve been a little sidetracked with a project – otherwise known as, putting the FINAL edits on the Freekeh eCookbook!  Also writing the introduction (which I’ve been putting off for months) and coming up with a name.  Yea, so this thing is really happening.  And […]

Grilled Swordfish with Tomatoes and Basil

A super belated thank you for your well wishes on last weekend’s triathlon! After having this race on my to-do list for a few years I finally got around to doing the New Jersey State Olympic Triathlon.  It was such a fun day. The race was really well organized, the course was flat & fast which was […]

Tropical Smoothie

Question….at any given time, how many different types of milk products do you guys have in the fridge? You know, like, dairy milk, half & half, almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk. I’m sure I’m forgetting a few, but you get my point. I’m just trying to gauge where I stand on the spectrum of […]

Honey Lime Chicken Skewers

Honey Lime Chicken Skewers

After last weekend’s triathlon I suspected I’d feel like I’d want to reward myself with a giant ice cream cone once we got home from the race.  Except that’s not exactly how things played out.  I wanted to want ice cream.  Like, really wanted to want it.  Instead I had a super intense craving for […]

Rhubarb Swirl Buttermilk Ice Cream

Rhubarb Swirl Buttermilk Ice Cream

Back in April I made a simple rhubarb compote, and have been making it on an almost weekly basis ever since.  I suppose it’s safe to say I’m a bit obsessed.  It’s just that it’s so gosh darn delicious, and if the early days of summer were to have a taste, this is it.  This compote […]

Nectarine Raspberry Popsicles

I didn’t grow up with brothers, but from what I’ve heard, it seems like it’s crucial to be speedy in finding the good snacks before they do.  Am I right? I’m kind of going through something similar with popsicles lately.  They’re disappearing almost as fast as I make them.  The culprits…just me and L.  Although one […]

Cucumber Pineapple Salsa

Cucumber Pineapple Salsa

A few years ago I learned that pineapple is an excellent post-workout recovery food.  It has lots of great anti-inflammitory properties, so it helps to speed up the recovery process.  Plus, it’s totally delicious, so it’s pretty much a win-win.  Not so shocking, my pineapple consumption increased shortly after that. Currently, triathlon season is in […]

Cumin Scented Beef Kabobs

Kabobs are one of those dinners that get lost in the shuffle for me. And, it’s really unfortunate because there’s so much to love about them. So, I’m on a mission to change that!  I also just found a zillion wooden skewers in my kitchen. Mostly though, kabobs are the ideal summer dinner.  Simple, and […]

Watermelon Lemonade

If there’s a drink of summer, I’m pretty sure Watermelon Lemonade is it.  Where has this stuff been all my life?!  Aside from right under my nose. I’ve been on a watermelon kick lately.  Big time.  During our week in Turks & Caicos L & I (ok, mostly I) devoured an 8 pound watermelon.  I […]
