Easy Peasy Blueberry Pie Bars

When it comes to pie, I like crisp, buttery crusts piled high with fruit and these blueberry pie bars deliver on both counts. Bonus: no crust rolling necessary! In fact, the same dough recipe does double duty here, pressed into the bottom of the pie pan for the aforementioned gloriously golden base and then crumbled […]

Bakery Style Strawberry White Chocolate Muffins

These strawberry white chocolate muffins are the best of both worlds: tender, fluffy fruit filled interiors with bakery style crunchy tops.

I’ve been testing these strawberry white chocolate muffins periodically for the last few months. At first because I really wanted to tweak them until I got the perfect golden-domed tops. But later on, I realized that it’s because nothing transports me to the briefly perfect British summer quite as much as fresh strawberries. Typical strawberry […]

Gluten Free Big Cluster Peanut Butter & Jelly Granola

You're just a handful of ingredients away from this Peanut Butter & Jelly Granola, flavored & sweetened with your favorite preserves or jelly.

Peanut butter and jelly granola… really, what’s not to love?

I most often give collards this pork-studded treatment, but any green you enjoy will benefit from the gentle braising that yields a silky-tender bite and aromatic pot liquor. Whether you stick […]

Everybody Lies About Caramelized Onion Dip

Caramelized onion dip: it ain’t no looker, but it’s one of the most deceptively delicious dip-a-thons waiting to happen. You know what else about it is sneaky as all hell? The cook time on any recipe floating around the internet for caramelizing onions. If a recipe touts that their caramelized onions take less than thirty […]

Basil Black Pepper Chicken & Broccoli

The perfect weeknight meal is here! This black pepper chicken & broccoli is a simple skillet dinner that comes together speedily with a hint of spice.

This basil and black pepper chicken & broccoli is my kind of weeknight meal. It comes together in one skillet, uses a handful of fresh ingredients & lets the pantry bring the back up to maximize those flavors. I like to use boneless skinless chicken thighs because the darker meat is more forgiving and a […]
