Soy Nog Napoleon Cups

I think we’ve all been there. You have all these fanciful daydreams of making impressively difficult French desserts full of precise slight of hand techniques that wouldn’t just make us kitchen magicians if we pulled them off but freaking wizards. Maybe we’d watch a video or two on how to make your puff pastry puff…

Brown Sugar Peach & Plum Tart

Awhile back I read this article about how Gwyneth Paltrow spends her days. No – I’m not going to bash on Ol’Gwyn here (too much) as is so fashionable to do but I was curious about it because we obviously have like mad things in common*. I mean she’s balancing being an international fashion icon,…

Soup au Pistou & The Honeysuckle Soap Contest

*This Contest is Closed* So let’s get this out of the way – you are probably wondering where the squirrels are that I hinted at yesterday. Well this morning as I was laying in bed this was the post I had to share and thus it is the one I am writing and this is…

The Betty Crocker Project: Cauliflower & Leek Au Gratin Soup

They want to know if they will someday meet that one special someone Hollywood promised them in a million romantic comedies because they’re anxious to live that “how did you meet” story they’ll tell…

Herb de Provence Roasted Tofurky

  This is not news but it is very real. I am a hopeless Aaron Sorkin addict. Now this might seem strange considering he’s up there with Hemingway* when it comes to creating childish and confusing female characters** but I am shamelessly in love with the Sorkin universe. I want to live in a world where…

Raspberry Lemonade Tart with a Rosewater & Coconut Crust

So I admit I’ve been a little MIA lately. There has been a lot going on and to be honest — I’ve fallen behind on basically everything. I mean emails, laundry, cleaning out the fridge… pretty much everything but bills*. But there have been a few really exciting things that have happened lately. To paraphrase:…

The Betty Crocker Project : Marinated Tempeh Ratatouille Heroes

  Back when I was a little vegan, one of the very first dishes I ever made was Ratatouille. Now if you’re not familiar with this traditional French Provençal dish that is usually already vegan — well that’s a shame. See this dish sounds fancy but it’s actually very easy and great way to get…
