Still struggling with a last-minute gift idea? Turn this maple spiced simple syrup into a gift for the foodie or cocktail lover on your list.
I inherited my love of entertaining from my mother and her mother before her. Their balance of grace and hospitality inspired me to experiment in the kitchen and to share my table. This passion for sharing and bringing people together is the heart of my book, The Gluten-Free Grains Cookbook.
don't let the "whole-grain, gluten-free, and vegan" part scare you away. I know the immediate reaction is an automatic "ew, gross." I know this because I have heard this reaction from friends upon hearing these categories. These cranberry hand pies will satisfy your butter-loving friends too, which makes them a practical choice for holiday baking.
As Thanksgiving rolled around this year, I found myself at a loss on the dessert front, which is normally my creative arena. I love the flavors of the holiday season, but I crave novelty. Thankfully, I found inspiration in this chocolate cranberry pecan tart, but being stumped made me think. When does tradition lose its comfort and become boring and/or monotonous?
