It’s almost Christmas! Still doesn’t feel like it, though. But maybe that’s because we’re not eating enough homemade seasonal candy, y’know?
This one goes out to all my vegetarian and vegan cuties.
I cook with so much garlic that I’m pretty sure my hands perpetually carry its scent, which I should probably apologize to my girlfriend for. But I will never stop doubling and tripling the amount of garlic a recipe calls for, because I like to live my truth.
Practically perfect in every way.
Cozy boozy cider for you and your date person or your best friend or your mom or whoever IT’S PROPER FALL COCKTAIL TIME!
Get your adulting on by preparing a fancy-looking and beginner-level five-course meal for your next date night or dinner party.
The best honey in the world comes from this one roadside honey stand in PEI that works on the honour system (spelled with a “u” because Canada). It tastes like fresh ocean sunshine. It tastes like happiness. Other honey is okay too I guess.
You’ll find ciders, lattes, hot chocolate and boozy hot drinks in here! Sip them during your autumn adventures.
Make one of these for your sweetie, your mom, your vegan/gluten free gal pal, or your cat (don’t do that), and celebrate the loving embrace of autumn!
The Boulevardier originated in Europe during the great bartender exodus caused by Prohibition. Definitely NOT a Negroni with bourbon instead of gin.
Savory pies (and tarts and galettes, too) that will keep you warm and happy and full even as chilly weather and crispy leaves descend from above.
Zucchini is bad. Zucchini, in fact, is the worst vegetable. Uncooked zucchini exists in a vacuum of flavor. Cooked zucchini, on the other hand, tastes like what I imagine hot turtle water tastes like. How you can go from nothing to unholy with the mere introduction of heat is a testament to zucchini’s darkness. Zucchini is the cantaloupe of vegetables. Zucchini is the vegetable you pair with yellow squash and serve in vats to large groups of people you disrespect. Zucchini is a miserable cucumber.
It’s supposed to be back-to-school time, but it’s still warm! So let’s have a daiquiri while we fret over global climate change.
I’m here to defend eggplant’s honor and prove it can be damn delicious when done right.
I’m from Idaho and in Idaho we learn that you can survive on just potatoes and butter? All the nutrients you need are in potatoes except for a couple, which are all in butter. Is that true?
Every time they offer me a potato chip or french fry, it’s like a well-meaning relative insisting that “you just haven’t met the right guy yet.” Sorry, Aunt Helen, but it’s not a matter of the right guy or the right potato.
One of my favorite things that I started doing after I came out was learning how to cook some of my mom’s recipes and it’s made us a lot, lot closer than we ever were before.
These roast chicken recipes will cure all ills and fill you up! What more could you want?
Here’s to becoming 26 in the midst of my infamous #SummerOfSelfSabotage and feeling very great about it.
For the overachiever in you.
