Make this one pot dinner Sunday night and eat for several days during the week! A personal vow I made after getting married just a few months ago is to always serve my family a home cooked dinner. I live and work full time in Silicon Valley, where the pace of life is anything but […]

A delicious chocolate treat with a secret kick; this Mexican hot chocolate flavored dessert is my favorite banana ice cream variation to date!

Banana + Toffee = Banoffee! The traditional recipe for this delicious pie calls for condensed milk and butter.

I love it when warm, cozy comfort food is stuffed into another comfort food classic! That’s exactly what happened when this chili twice baked potato was born!

Chocolate and orange…a classic flavor combination that I find irresistible! February has been mostly warm and sunny in Northern California and our orange trees are in full bloom.

I’d like to introduce you to Golden Hot Chocolate. She is the delicious alter ego of “golden milk”, which is a turmeric infused drink that gained popularity in India and parts of Asia for its amazing health benefits.
