Heirloom Tomato Tart in a Parmesan Crust

Heirloom Tomato Tart in a Parmesan Crust

A knock-out tomato tart recipe - it highlights the flavor and vibrancy of the tomatoes while remaining mush-free.

Homemade Ricotta

Homemade Ricotta

So simple, a fresh ricotta recipe should be part of every cook's repertoire. Made from just two ingredients - buttermilk and whole milk.

Beluga Lentil Crostini

Beluga Lentil Crostini

This has become one of my favorite crostini recipes - goat cheese, black beluga lentils, and chives on garlic-rubbed crostini.

Cherry-Almond Gratin

Cherry-Almond Gratin

The flavor in this gratin recipe stops time. The almond top melds perfectly with the sweet spiked juice of the cherries. It is a perfect recipe to welcome in cherry season.

The perfect standard crepe recipe from Larousse Gastronomique, I've included many variations and topping suggestions here as well.

Butter Lettuce Sunshine Salad

Butter Lettuce Sunshine Salad

A lovely salad recipe utilizing a vibrant citrus and Parmesan vinaigrette. I did a demo of this salad at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmers Market.

Cheesy Potato Spoon Bread

Cheesy Potato Spoon Bread

Outrageously good cheesy potato spoon bread recipe. Warm, tasty, cheesy, crusty, cayenne-kissed, oven-baked goodness. If you are a fan of comfort food - look no further.

Spinach-Mushroom Quiche

Spinach-Mushroom Quiche

This is a spinach mushroom quiche recipe that features no dairy, no eggs, and no butter. Sounds like it would lack something in the taste department, right? Wrong. It was delicious.

Maison du Miel's Heather Honey Ice Cream

Maison du Miel's Heather Honey Ice Cream

This honey ice cream recipe makes a creamy bowl of goodness that tastes as good as it looks. Four ingredients; plump vanilla beans, heavy cream, whole milk, and honey. That's it.
