Masala Spice Cake with Coconut Buttercream and Caramel Apples

I was recently given a sample of maharaja masala spice from Seasonality Spices and wanted to try it out. To be honest I am not the biggest fan of curry so I wanted to do a recipe that people could use if they had some masala but wanted to try something different. For this recipe…

Sweet Soy and Garlic Pork

Family meal is a staple in a lot of restaurants, at the end of a long shift finally getting to sit and have some food with your co workers can be such a relief especially on weekends. Whenever it was my turn to make family meal a go to of mine would be this marinade….

Pot Roast with Carrots and Pearl Onions

Pot roast is one of those dishes that we always had growing up. Pot roast, carrots, onions, and white rice. It is something my grandmother always made for my mom when she was a kid. My mom would tell me that she would get off the bus and be able to smell it from down…

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Its so hard for me to turn down anything chocolate and peanut butter. Except for the Easter egg Reese’s Cup, the ratios are off and it tastes weird, but I digress. So I am pretty sure I have the most incredible girlfriend ever, she works over 80 hours a week and still makes pastries for…

Special Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

I recently made some cannabutter and wanted to make some treats with it. But to be honest the taste of it makes me sick. Made too strong of a batch once and lets just say I can’t even eat regular brownies now. So to combat that I wanted to do a recipe that can help…

Lemon Meringue Pie

It’s Pie day!  Lemon meringue pie is my absolute favorite, I remember my grandmother making it growing up. Even when I first started cooking around 13 I was fascinated making the filling and seeing it slowly thicken up. In the words of Bill Nye, “Science!!” I decided to not do a regular gelatin filling for…

French Onion Soup with Pane Di Como

We had a couple weeks in January where the temperature was 60º and sunny out, then out of no where it decides to drop to 20 and dump snow on the city. Which means you can either complain about the weather or make soup and stay warm! I am usually not a fan of broth…

Soft Pretzels with Cheese Sauce

Pretzels and cheese sauce go hand in hand like popcorn and movies, cake and ice cream, Eagles fans and destruction.

Rabbit Terrine with Carrot Puree and Ginger Tuile

It seems I am having a hard time staying on track with what I want to do for the blog recipe lately because this week was supposed to be chicken pot pie. This is obviously not chicken, nor in a pie. However I think you guys will like this and hopefully give it a shot….

Roasted Apple and Ginger Macarons

So i’ll be honest, this dish today was originally going to be a full dish with lots of components. However it somehow turned into just trying to get the macarons done how I wanted. I have never done them before so I figured it would be a good learning day. I am trying to improve…
