Chai Vanilla Bean Shortbread

You may have noticed from other recipes that I love chai tea. Chai lattes, plain chai, chai cake, chai panna cotta, chai body scrub, chai ice cream, it’s all wonderful. The warm, toasty, comforting spices – cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom, and coriander – makes a cozy blend that’s perfect for winter. And since I’m a huge fan of chai, I obviously needed to put it … Continue reading Chai Vanilla Bean Shortbread

There’s something about the ooey-gooeyness of it that honestly just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. This though, this is the ULTIMATE baked brie. It’s baked inside bread. INSIDE A LOAF OF BREAD, GUYS. It’s … Continue reading Brie Bread Bowl

Pea & Chorizo Pasta

While I love a hearty, thick and spicy tomato based sauce or bolognese that’s been simmering for hours, you can’t always swing that kind of time during the week, and sometimes you just want something a bit lighter and quicker. In swoops this clear sauce consisting of olive oil, white wine, pasta water and lemon juice with all your delicious add-ins. I actually really love … Continue reading Pea & Chorizo Pasta

Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms

Does anyone else try and clean their fridge out at the end of the week, or is that just me? I don’t know what it is, but I love starting the week with a clean slate fridge. I often find myself at the end of the week throwing together meals with tidbits of leftover food, which is the tastiest kind of upcycling you can do. … Continue reading Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms
