Lemon Goat Cheese Cauliflower Mash

by Lauren

Cauliflower mash. Let’s be real, that does not sound appealing.

But it’s looks and taste are more deceiving than you know. It eerily similar to mashed potatoes but these have a little twist of lemon and goat cheese.

We had this with the Asian BBQ ribs last weekend and it was a fabulous pairing. You can of course eat them with a simple roasted chicken or a fancy cut of steak too.

I had the urge to give these a … Read more...

One word. Zesty.

These little scones are zesty. And they have the perfect balance of sweetness.

They are buttery and lemony tidbits of joy, glazed with a sweet vanilla drizzle. These scones are perfect for tea parties, brunches, breakfast, or a slightly sweet & sinful treat, just because.

Real aioli has raw egg yolk in it. That kind of freaks me out.

If I lived on a farm and knew the egg was coming straight from a chicken and into my food…or was, eh hem, very fresh, I might feel better about being authentic with my aioli. Until there are farms on the beach I’ll keep substituting with Greek yogurt and mayonnaise.

by Chrissy

Cauliflower is making a come-back. I’m sure of it, because I felt so compelled to buy 3 heads of the stuff.

I can’t remember a time in my life when that would ever have made sense, so I’m just going with it and I’ll see what happens.

Chicken & Cannellini Soup with Kale

by Chrissy

If it wasn’t for consuming a large bowl of this soup before writing this post, I am fairly positive that my fingers would be icicles. When it drops into the 30’s by Southern California’s coastline, I know that it has to be absolutely frigid everywhere else.

Fear not! There’s nothing like a little homemade soup to warm up the body & soul…and restore to functional use in no time at all.

The pleasant mixture of sage and leek, kale and … Read more...
