A forecast of a cold and icy mix this evening has diverted me from going anywhere, and seeing how its been this way for quite awhile now especially compared to last years “would we even call it” winter, the cabin fever has started to kick in. Therefore, I’ve decided to put my excess energy to use. And with thyme and lemon in my fridge, I’ve been inspired to make popovers, lemon and thyme popovers. I thought if anything, the oven should keep the apartment warm and toasty, and the spare thyme and time I have can go toward this delicious cocktail I call The Thyme-ly Dalmatian.

We all know guacamole is finger-licking tasty, especially in the summer when avocados are ripe and in season, but who would’ve thought guacamole can be whipped up and enjoyed in less than twenty minutes with five simple ingredients? Lara Land transforms and elevates the traditional summertime snack by adding minced yellow peppers to the mix with lots and lots of cilantro. A few splashes of homemade lemon and lime juice add the perfect tang and acidity just begging to be scooped up with your favorite tortilla chips.

Ten minutes in and you’ve got yourself a new twist on an old favorite.

Roasting the chicken itself is simple enough, but how does one perfectly achieve that crispy skin, that juicy meat, that sumptuous blend of spices that makes the recipe uniquely yours? Rotisserie chicken was always a classic in my house growing up, so when I began cooking at home I wanted to have a roast chicken recipe that friends and family would come knocking on my door for. After many tries, I think I’ve found my solution. Read More

Culinary confession time: I really, really dislike shortbread cookies. Even though my mom makes a mean lavender shortbread, I’ve just never understood why people enjoy eating sandy, flavorless, crumbly pucks. I could go on, but I’ll spare you more complaining. I refuse to eat them, so I most definitely refuse to bake them.

That’s why, when I came across a recipe for lemon-lime basil shortbread cookies in the July 2011 issue of Bon Appetit, I was initially disappointed-why ruin three absolutely stunning ingredients by using them in shortbread, of all things? Read More

One of my all-time favorite things about going to a spa (beyond a luxurious massage) is the refreshing cucumber lemon water they serve in frosty glasses. Since going to the spa is an experience that does not happen too often, I decided to bring the spa to me; hence, the creation of my Cucumber Lemon Spa Popsicles. They take minimal effort…..but make you feel far away and fabulous! Read More
