et’s delve into the savory side of things for a minute shall we. Oh, you didn’t think I ate desserts exclusively did you? Well I don’t. That would be crazy! If you couldn’t tell from this post, my favorite things to eat are eggs. They are easy, inexpensive and best of all, since I’m a vegetarian, they are packed with protein.

Suzanne Goin, the executive chef at Luques in Los Angeles, is one of my favorite chefs. Her sophisticated dishes have multiple layers of flavors and textures. This recipe is from the Luques cookbook that I use quite often.

I have been ordering out way to much lately. At a minimum of $12 a pop, twice a day seven days a week… Well, it adds up (even if I will not, eschewing the obvious mental-financial pains). Tonight, I was finger-peddling my brand new iPhone 4s (it is white!!!!) and flicking through the delivery.com app looking for tonights food when I decided enough was enough.

What do you do with an abundance of carrots? That was the question I asked myself recently. Thanks to our farm box deliveries we’ve been inundated with carrots. Carrot cake is always an option of course, and in fact I did make one using an unusual recipe, but the results were less than steller so in the rubbish bin went the cake. The search for a great carrot recipe continued until I stumbled onto the simple idea of carrot fritters.

Something mystical has happened this weekend, my City Crab Apples have transformed into “poisonous” magic wishing apples! Ok, well perhaps not so mystical and definitely not so poisonous…but I did make Candy Apples! As I debated a few weeks ago with what to make with my tiny little crab apples, the thought of Halloween obviously popped into my head…

It’s National Deviled Eggs Day! Why not celebrate by making these Jalapeño Deviled Eggs! Wouldn’t you think this day would fall at some point during the summer months when picnics are in full swing? Whatever! It’s nothing to get cracked up about.

Halloween is upon us, and I’m in the mood for cooking something pumpkin-related again. Actually, this is “take two” of last year’s recipe, the previous one being kind of a disaster.

In our latest "red box" we got beautiful black radishes. After using them to cover polenta for our Food Day gathering (more on that to come from Casey!), I decided to make a delicious radish pizza for dinner the other night.

In celebration, I have a quick, simple, Halloween-inspired chocolate goody for you to try that would be perfect for any Halloween party. I came up with this idea when I was wondering the aisles of the grocery store looking for a treat to bring to a friend’s apartment. It may be too early for peppermint bark, but it’s the perfect time for Halloween bark!

I was recently invited to participate in McCormick's Halloween baking blogger contest through KitchenPlay, and since I love baking how could I resist?

Monster as in grrrrrr not Monster like HUGE. Although I do like a HUGE cookie every now and again (okay that is a lie, I ALWAYS like huge cookies). SOOO I know that Halloween weekend is upon us and I have waited till the last min to make these...but better late then never right?

It’s almost fall and that means it’s time to start baking warm, spicy autumn desserts. My absolute favorite spice cake recipe is for Pumpkin Spice Bars. To make the bars, you start out by baking a homemade spice cake in a sheet pan and savoring the smell of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves filling up your kitchen.

Remember last week when I discovered two ways for not making marshmallows? Thank goodness I finally figured it out and was able to make some amazing marshmallow treats! Being the frugal cook I am I can't bear to let anything go to waste so I saved the marshmallow cream figuring no recipe is a failure if you can find a way to turn it into something glorious and new. Let me tell you, these candies are pretty glorious.

I’m guest posting over at Vestavamps today, so you’ll have to hop on over there for the spooky details + recipe. I can’t remember exactly, but I think we originally met through Instagram, a combination of social media plus pretty pictures.

As I was baking up some pumpkin muffins for the kids today I was realizing how my baking has changed over this past year. I used to be into mixing various types of gluten free flours to see what the results would be.

I loved this idea, especially since lately I watched one of the Sex and the City episode where Carrie and Miranda were devouring some cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery.

In embarrassing Libra fashion, I must have changed my mind w/r/t the type of cake I wanted to make for the now annual Libra birthday party at least five times. Last year’s entry was a hit, so I was feeling the follow-up pressure, it’s true. But more than that, there’s also finally a full-on fall chill in the air, so I wanted something more rich and comforting than sharply sugary.

had a baking spree with my girls this past weekend. They really wanted me to make something “Halloweeny.” And because Pia was involved, it had to be chocolate. I thought about my poor old whoopie pie pan that hasen’t been used since this.

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to post this recipe. I’ve been making it since last year . It’s one of my favorites and something I make regularly. I have another more traditional chicken pot pie recipe which I like a lot, but that recipe is most certainly not low fat so I don’t make it as much (usually only after holidays to use up the extra chicken/turkey). This recipe is a lighter version of chicken pot pie, but it tastes just as good.

Simple is almost always better. At least I think so. Simple suppers, simple desserts, simple pleasures. Today we have a simple dessert that is certain to please. We’re poaching beautiful seasonal plums in wine with spices. It’s easy peasy and you can make this in less than 15 minutes. So there are really no excuses NOT to enjoy dessert ; )
