This is mostly due to clients who love baked goods, but also because I’m feeling more and more comfortable experimenting with baking recipes.

Best of Basic: Avocado Toast

I was long distance chatting with my mom the other day, and because our conversations often revolve around food, she was raving about an avocado toast she recently had for lunch at a cafe in my hometown, St. Louis.

Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas

I try really hard to eat fresh, whole foods as much as possible. And if I do purchase packaged foods, I like them to be made with only recognizable ingredients. For example, pasta isn’t difficult to buy prepackaged because it’s easy to find organic pasta made with only 100% whole wheat flour and water. But… Continue reading Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas

Today marks the first day of Hanukkah 2015, and for the first time ever, I’m really getting into the celebration.

Classic Homemade Biscuits

Biscuits. A family favorite in my house, and in most other households, if I had to guess. Every holiday in my family includes biscuits; always has and always will. But not all biscuits are created equal. Homemade biscuits are not only simple to make, but include very few ingredients. All of which you probably have… Continue reading Classic Homemade Biscuits

I’m a serious breakfast person, rarely ever do I skip it. Not only am I starving when I wake up, but some of my favorite foods are breakfast dishes. I eat a homemade egg sandwich almost every day before work and 99.9% of weekends involve at least one bagel, but as a vegetarian, I miss out… Continue reading Sweet & Savory Vegan Sausage Burgers
