If you want to try something interesting and new, you’re in the right place. Eggplant is a fruit that doesn’t have much of a place in American cuisine. Most of us have only ever experienced it in the form of eggplant parmesan or maybe on the grill. If you’re in the mood for a spicy,

Back to the old books we go, this time for a homemade bread recipe called “water bread.” It gets its name from the fact that it’s made with — you guessed it — water. If you’re easily amused like I am, this recipe is also a great opportunity for a time-lapse video or photo set

Limoncello is an Italian liqueur made with lemon peels, alcohol, sugar, and patience. If you want to put your leftover naked lemons to use, make a double batch of this recipe and then use the fruit and any leftover alcohol to make hard lemonade (or regular lemonade)!

The Hubby asked for some homemade jam the other day. I asked him what flavor and his response was: “Blueberry! There isn’t enough blueberry stuff in the world.” I had made a fruit reduction for my strawberry-filled rosewater cupcakes in the past, so I figured it probably couldn’t be too much more difficult than that.

Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

The hubby and I have taken a liking to a local stir fry place over the course of the past year, but eating out a lot can get expensive pretty quickly. I got a stove-friendly wok from Nana, so I decided that now was as good a time as any to break it out and

One of my favorite drinks (next to rum and Coke or J√§germeister and Dr. Pepper) is hard lemonade. I’ve been drinking MIke’s since I was in college. I’d grab a bottle and take it outside with me whenever I had to work on my bike. Now that I’m older and I have more to do

Last winter, people got really excited about red wine hot chocolate. I thought it sounded kind of dumb, so I let it be. Well, here I am, months later, faced with a chocolate craving and a remaining third of a bottle of merlot. So I said, screw it, let’s try it. I’m going to come

This recipe is brought to you by Mother Necessity. Back in May, I was scrambling to put together a birthday dinner for my hubby after a busy day, and I realized partway through that I hadn’t made him a cake or a pastry or anything. Crap. So, I scrambled to toss something together, and after
