A few years back, Josh and I took a trip to the upper peninsula where we enjoyed the most delicious smoked whitefish. This past weekend, I saw some available from the fish guy at our farmer’s market and I just had to scoop some up. With the weather being a little chillier this week, I […]

West African Chicken and Peanut Stew

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am obsessed with peanut butter. In fact, I’ve taught cooking classes that are completely centered around it.

If you’re not a huge pumpernickel fan, simply swap in sourdough or baguette for the croutons. 1. Preheat oven to 400. […]

Sweet Corn Gazpacho Shooters

I just can’t seem to kick my craving for sweet corn. It’s so delicious right now! And while it’s great on it’s own, using it in blended soups adds an extra creamy texture without any added cream or milk (making it a great option for your vegan and vegetarian friends). If you’re not a fan […]
