Vegan No-Bake Cookies

Gather ’round hippies, this summer has seen the renaissance of my favorite no-bake cookie recipe. There’s no refined sugar, no gluten, and even better, they’re delicious and take about 10 minutes to make. I used to make these for my book club when I first moved to Minneapolis. Today, I made them at the special [...]

Savory Corn Griddle Cakes with Spiced Honey Syrup

The first sweet corn of the season has made it to the Kingfield Farmer’s Market! The market has been hyping the arrival of sweet corn all week, so of course I rolled out of bed this morning and made a beeline for the Peter’s Pumpkins stand. I spent the afternoon menu planning while Sara tried [...]

Chili Lime Mock Duck Tacos with Kohlrabi Slaw

It is the summer of tacos! Why tacos? Tacos are quick and they don’t require turning on the oven, and they can be filled with so many different things. Today I decided to combine my favorite sandwich filling (chili lime mock duck) with a slaw made from my favorite vegetable — kohlrabi! — and some [...]

Spinach Leek Egg Pie with Potato Parmesan Crust

I wanted to call this recipe a frittata instead of an egg pie because egg pie just sounds weird, but wikipedia tells me that a frittata is cooked in a frying pan, and this is not, so I had no other choice. If you have a better word for it, please, please let me know. [...]

Tofu Tacos with Citrus Slaw and Chipotle Sour Cream

It’s spring in Minnesota! And we do appreciate our springs. This year spring is especially joyful for me because I’m finishing my Master’s degree in May. The end is so so close! I have a long list of things I plan to do with all the time I’ll not be spending doing homework. One of [...]

Glazed Orange Scones

I’m going to keep this post short because I’m watching a sleeping baby this afternoon and she could wake up at any moment. I’ve been wanting to share this orange scone recipe for a long time. I’ve been making it for years, and I continue to love it and crave it. In fact, I whipped [...]

Holiday Recipe Link Bonanza

In the month leading up to Christmas, I make a lot of lists to keep myself from panicking — lists of people and presents, lists of tasks, and lists of food. This year, I think the food list was the only thing with everything checked off in time. I pulled out some old favorite recipes [...]

Lemongrass Mint Tea

If you come to our house this Winter and order the house tea, you’ll be getting a pot of this lemongrass and mint concoction I just whipped up. There certainly is plenty to go around, and it is absolutely my new favorite tea. Harmony Valley sent 4 bunches of lemongrass this year. If you’ve ever [...]

Pomegranate Lime Slushie

Last month, Sara and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary by taking a class together at the Kitchen Window. The class was called “Happy Hour Ice Creams and Sorbets”, and we did very well by that theme with vanilla stout ice cream, cherry merlot ice cream, chocolate whiskey ice cream, and peach champagne granitas. Our [...]

Arugula, Feta, & Couscous Salad

A friend of mine graduated a couple weeks ago and threw a potluck to celebrate. I brought this salad and was glad I had some extra to keep just for myself. It’ll work with whatever green vegetables are around — I’m going to make it again tonight with sugar snap peas. Arugula, Feta, & Couscous [...]
