Breakfast

Fraîche Nutrition's Strawberry Rhubarb Pancakes made with fresh strawberries, rhubarb and a hint of vanilla!

Don’t you love it when two of the best things in the world collide?  Like, shopping and girlfriends, spare time and a cup of tea (or glass of wine, let’s be real), and strawberry and rhubarb seasons overlapping.  I mean, you just can’t let something like that go to waste!  Not to squander an opportunity, I created these strawberry rhubarb … View The Post

Asparagus in a Blanket using filo pastry and fresh asparagus, the perfect spring appetizer that can be made vegan!

A good old 80’s appy gets a healthier overhaul with this veggie version using asparagus and filo pastry! You know it’s spring when the lilacs are in bloom and the asparagus hits the market (or your garden if you’re lucky enough to grow your own).  I seriously don’t leave the grocery store these days without a bundle of asparagus!

Chocolate Chunk Olive Oil Banana Cake with Lisianthus Flowers, a vintage fork and a Gingham napkin on a white farmhouse table

Who doesn’t LOVE banana cake?  Our clan is obsessed, and the novelty of a freshly baked loaf of banana bread coming out of the oven never seems to wear out.  I’ve had the same recipe on repeat for over 25 years (there’s a reason, it’s SO GOOD… and yes, I’m that old if you are doing the math lol), and … View The Post
