Smoked Rosemary & Apple Naked Cake

Happy first week of November, friends! Anyone else like me and desperately trying to hold on to what ever moments of fall may be left out there in the world, despite the fact that it’s blatantly snowing outside… wet, cold, nasty snow!

The Peachy Keen Cocktail

You know it’s officially summer when the farmer’s markets are overflowing with a tempting variety of sweet peaches. I’ve been especially drawn to these punched-down versions of a white peach, called a Donut Peach. I love their little squatty, orbital bodies, haha! They really do resemble a donut in a way, however, the flavor is so incredible. Delicately sweet with a hint of floral. I’m dreaming of all the things

When that final moment came and their delicate blooms vibrantly showed their faces, I lovingly picked away as many as could be spared and threw them into the insides of a chicken. I never knew just how amazing lavender could taste until I paired it with some rosemary, lemon and

Pear & Rosemary Martini

This lovely story begins one day as I was wandering the wine store of Trader Joe’s. I say “wine store”, because for some crazy reason, Minnesota does not allow the sale of alcohol with any food products. Therefore, shopping for dinner and grabbing wine has to be done in two transactions – in two different stores. I know, it’s crazy to any of you that live in states where everything
