As promised, an all-natural Thin Mint recipe for you. No shortening, no trans-fats from partially hydrogenated vegetable oils - just good old-fashioned butter, cocoa, vanilla, sugar, chocolate, whole grain flour, and peppermint turned into delicious, thin minty goodness.
A liquid nitrogen ice cream recipe - it uses a vanilla base, and makes a wonderfully creamy ice cream.
A lilikoi curd-swirled loaf cake. It moist in the middle, sliceable, and delicious. Change curds with the seasons or as you are inspired - any flavor will work.
This jam tart recipe makes the cutest tarts ever. Cornmeal biscuit dough is the base, and you can play around with different shapes and sizes - they are delicious and buttery straight from the oven or at room temperature hours later.
This candied walnut recipe was is the perfect solution to a New Years Eve hors d'oeuvres dilemma. Made with walnuts, sea salt, black pepper, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and powdered sugar.
Smoky and creamy, this salsa recipe is best drizzled over eggs, quesadilla, and crepes.
Rose Beranbaum's Chocolate Oblivion Truffle Torte Recipe creates the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted.
A knock-out tomato tart recipe - it highlights the flavor and vibrancy of the tomatoes while remaining mush-free.
So simple, a fresh ricotta recipe should be part of every cook's repertoire. Made from just two ingredients - buttermilk and whole milk.
This has become one of my favorite crostini recipes - goat cheese, black beluga lentils, and chives on garlic-rubbed crostini.
