I love Halloween season. Full stop. There’s candy galore, horror films on TV every night, and it’s the only time of year when it’s socially acceptable — encouraged even — to dress in all black. What’s not to love? These spiderweb buns are a fun twist on a traditional hot cross bun recipe. Who says spooky season can’t start in July?

Brioche Cinnamon Rolls
“When Pillsbury makes cinnamon rolls so easy –just pop open the tube, place, and bake–why would you go to the trouble of making your own from scratch?” You ask skeptically. I just have one answer to that very valid question, can the Pillsbury tube make cinnamon rolls that are so pillowy, cinnamon-filled, and topped with the most addictive browned butter cream cheese frosting that you think you’ve died and gone to a cinnamon roll version of heaven? I didn’t think so.
This flatbread is of ninja caliber; it just comes out of nowhere and smacks you in the face with flavor. The mix of a soft texture and herby top make this bread a slam dunk. You’ll definitely be glad you tried it.
Garlic Lover’s Hummus
to all those people out there who opt for more garlic (always more garlic), knowing full well that their breath will reek for the rest of the night (and possibly the next morning). I am one of you. This hummus is for you.
So many Indian food recipes, yet so little time. Here is one of the greats. One who needs no introduction. My favorite, saag paneer. Mic drop. This one is for all of those kale skeptics out there whose hearts and minds (and stomachs) I couldn’t change with my last post for kale and saag paneer.Continue reading “Saag Paneer”
Kale and Paneer Saag
By a show of hands, who here is a kale skeptic? For the longest time, I would have joined you in your kale skepticism. While I used to be one of those kale disbelievers, I’m telling you this kale & paneer saag might just turn you. Saag (specifically mushroom saag…if you haven’t had it before,Continue reading “Kale and Paneer Saag”
“Chicken” Pot Pie
A chicken pot pie is one of those universally loved dish. I mean, what’s not to love? It’s creamy, hot, and delicious! This is a vegetarian version of a chicken pot pie, but it can just as easily be converted back into a regular chicken pot pie – simply sub out the veggie sausage forContinue reading ““Chicken” Pot Pie”
Pesto Tear-and-Share Bread
This is my go-to recipe when going to a potluck. It’s quick, easy and an impressive-looking centerpiece that’s perfect for any party. I think everyone knows this already, but I LOVE bread, absolutely obsessed. Stuff that bread and I’m dropping everything to run over to eat a piece of that bread. Not exaggerating. This breadContinue reading “Pesto Tear-and-Share Bread”
What’s better than a nice and flaky, buttery biscuit on a Sunday morning that’s unctuously lathered in butter and maybe a little jam or topped with a ladleful of thick gravy? Yeah, I couldn’t think of anything better either. I’ve tried my fair share of biscuits and let me tell you, these are by farContinue reading “Flaky Biscuits”
If I could only have one final breakfast, I’d want that breakfast to be this shakshuka with some pita or crusty sourdough bread. Hands down, no question. I mean what could be better than a tomato and spinach stew with runny eggs and cheese on top? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Shakshuka is a spicy tomato andContinue reading “Shakshuka”
