    Fast and Easy Salmon With Brown Sugar Chili Powder Rub

    I came across this recipe a few weeks ago and have made it for my husband and I twice already. It’s so easy as well as fast and delicious. I had never cooked fish before this but it was much easier than I thought. I only got 2 salmon steaks to cook since our daughter doesn’t like fish but you can easily double the recipe. READ MORE

    Yummy Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

    As much as I hate to say goodbye to the California sunshine and watch our long, warm days dissolve into shorter, cooler days, I love the fall season. Maybe it’s because of the years I spent in New York as a pastry chef, but there’s something very exciting about pulling out my boots and sweaters and bundling up for long walks around town with my family. Let’s be real, I also prefer the warmth of my Mixed Bakery oven while baking in the cooler months too. READ MORE

    The Genius Way To Sneak Healthy Food Into Your Kids’ Diets

    My son, Bug, is a snackaholic.

    No matter how much food I give him, he’s always on the prowl for more. He’s also very picky and likes variety. If he eats a cheese stick before lunch, he’ll want something crunchy in the afternoon. This is not a fight I’m going to win so I usually comply with his demands.

    One night Bug had already devoured one of every snack in the house and I had no idea what to give him. Scanning the pantry I saw Cheerios, fruit snacks, cheese balls, animal crackers, Wheat Thins, and raisins. “Hmm,” I thought, “what would happen if I mix these all up in a bowl, would it pass the test?” READ MORE

    Fast and Easy Korean Beef Over Rice

    After years of throwing holy water on cooking like it was some vampire coming to kill me, a couple of years ago, I finally got into a cooking groove. I even *GASP* looked forward to it while also starting a food blog, which I’ve since abandoned.

    I discovered two things about cooking. You’ve got to LOVE what your cooking to really love cooking. For me, I loved the challenge of cooking food I thought would be difficult.

    My definition of “difficult” at the time was something beyond microwave nachos, frozen lasagna, and if I really went wild, making the exotic and way out there French toast. Adding bacon on the side made me feel like a goddamn gourmet. Pouring a glass of orange juice to go along with it and… BOOM, I’m a culinary genius. READ MORE
