When I was browsing the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturday, I spotted some leeks at the Dirty Girl Produce stall that were too pretty to pass up. So I bought a big bunch (for just three bucks) and went about my way….
Few things in life are as satisfying as baking bread from scratch – and enjoying the fruits of your labor. So you can imagine how happy I was when these light and airy homemade crescent rolls emerged from the oven. Not only did the buns look and smell amazing, but they tasted good, too.
It’s been a busy month, so it was nice to spend Sunday at home, baking cottage cheese kolaches with Rookie at my side. What inspired me to make these pretty Czech pastries featuring a sweet yeast dough, creamy filling and crumb topping?
This time of year, I can’t go to the grocery store or farmers’ market without coming home with some type of winter squash. Acorn, butternut, delicata – I love them all. They’re decorative and delicious, whether stuffed, roasted or puréed.
Ugh, I’m currently stuck at McCarran International Airport as my flight is delayed. Adobe MAX was fun, but all I want to do is get home – to San Mateo, Rookie and these honeynut squash and sage biscuits.
I’m headed to Las Vegas on Tuesday to attend Adobe MAX, but a girl still has to eat. So I spent the morning cooking up this spicy Yucatán pork stew with Mexican rice, which will be my dinner until I leave.
It’s officially fall, which means squash is everywhere … and I love it! In fact, I couldn’t resist buying a bag of zucchette pasta at Trader Joe’s and two honeynut squash from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market recently. With the addition of a few more ingredients, I was able to rustle up this pasta with butternut squash and sage dish.
