Twice Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Spicy Honey Butter


I ripped this recipe out of a Bon Appetit magazine a year or two ago and had been wanting to make it ever since. Somehow I never got around to making it until today. The magazine describes the recipe as “easy” but I find it a bit putzy. Still, usually putzy recipes translate to worth…

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats


It’s been hot here in Southern California considering it’s nearly the end of October. One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast on a hot California morning is a nice cool jar of overnight oats. I think we can all agree that peanut butter and banana are pretty amazing together. This is probably the…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Puffed Rice Bars


A couple months ago I bought a bag of puffed rice, I’m presuming because I likened it to brown rice cereal AKA (brown rice) rice krispies and intended to use it to make some sort of granola bar recipe. Tick-tock, tick-tock. Time passes and the bag of puffed rice sits on its perch in my…

This is rather hilarious because I’m not vegetarian, vegan or any sort of healthy. But the way that WordPress.com suggests blogs to follow has allowed me to cultivate…

Brown Butter Honey Oat Muffins


Of my recent food obsessions (red velvet, brown butter and pancakes), brown butter is the most versatile technique/the easiest ingredient to incorporate into a recipe. For example, this morning I thought to myself, I wonder if brown butter would work well in muffins. So I googled brown butter muffins. And came across about a bazillion…

Brioche


Though often thought of as a sweet bread, I find the overwhelming flavor to be butter. I think this bread would be great as French toast or any kind of sandwich you could imagine.
