Happy Hanukkah! To celebrate this holiday in a culinary manor, I made latkes.

Plus, along with all the colors come a variety of nutrients (nerd alert), such as antioxidants, vitamin C, and beta… read more »

This is “really good” hazelnut almond butter. I’m a nut butter connoisseur of sorts, and I make a lot of my own nut butters. It’s really easy to do and the taste is incomparable. This particular batch is made with almonds, hazelnuts, coconut, and garam marsala (secret ingredient). It’s a delicious combination of spicy and… read more »

Fika, one of the greatest traditions ever, literally means “to have coffee.” Fika is usually accompanied by pastries or cake and is a daily celebration in Sweden. I can’t think of anything more festive than coffee + delicious Swedish treats on a cold winter day. Fika is not just an occasion for coffee, but also… read more »

After a failed run yesterday, I slept in and decided to bake something delicious. DONUTS! I’ve been pushing hard to prepare for Western States and my body decided it needed a break. So I indulged.

  Taste the rainbow…. Is there anything that better conjures up childhood dreams of leprechauns, rainbows, and a magical fairyland than a bowl of sugary marshmallow cereal?? Lucky Charms were a rare occurrence in the Howe household, but I do remember a couple blissful mornings of a marshmallow induced sugar coma. So worth it. I like to… read more »

My friend Taryn rocks. Not once, but twice, she has come to Bend to hang out with me when I’ve found myself injured and Zach is out of town. We’ve got in down to a routine. We bake, watch movies, drink wine, and laugh a lot. I cannot express in words how great it is… read more »
