This morning I was looking at my home page and I realized that there is a lot of orange sweet potato and pumpkin going on. Considering the time of year I think it is very fitting. Maybe I should go red and green when Christmas comes around? Got any green and red recipes that I can try out for Christmas?

I spent this past weekend in one of my favorite cities, Palm Springs. It’s about an hour and half-long drive east of Los Angeles, making it the most perfect weekend getaway to Angelenos. I really really love it out there, even in the summers when the temperatures soar above a hundred. In terms of aesthetics, it doesn’t get more beautiful. It’s a dreamy combination of mid-century meets Moroccan meets Spanish. Palm trees and bougainvilleas line the streets while old cars drive up and down quiet neighborhood roads.

There are as many recipes for tomato pasta sauce as there are Italian grandmothers. My Sicilian grandmother used to make her sauce every year from the tomatoes in her garden. Much of the time the sauce had meat in it but I don’t think it was ever exactly the same twice.

Cauliflower Crust Pizza I came across this cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest, and was instantly intrigued. A low-carb pizza? Sign me up! I was skeptical, of course, but curious enough to try it and see how it tasted. Cauliflower Crust Pizza
With the holidays approaching ever so quickly, I thought now was as good a time as any to talk about the art of a perfect pie crust. Yes, yes, I know it is so easy to trot down the refrigerator isle and plop a couple pre-made ones into your cart…….BUT…..It is so fun to eat a pie that was made with love and a HOMEMADE pie crust! Pie crust has a bad reputation for being difficult or touchy. I would have to agree only in the area of being touchy. Perfect Pie Crust=Great Apple Dumplings
Double Crust Blueberry Pie My grandma would be so proud of me if she were still a live because she was the pie maker in the family, and I finally feel like I can make a decent pie crust which is half the battle. Grandma made wonderful pies and it was always such a treat to go to her house or for her to come to ours because she always made a pie or had one in hand. As a child I only liked her lemon meringue and chocolate pies although I know she made many others. I wasn’t a crust eater then, especially a pie that had a top crust but things have changed since then. I love the pie crust now especially when the crust is flaky, buttery and melt in your mouth tender. My problem with pies now is waiting for them to cool long enough to cut into it :) and not eating half of it all by myself.
Jamaican Banana Fritters | There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use!
Two-Bite Strawberry Hand Pies | Baking and Cooking Blog - Evil Shenanigans This post comes to you from damply beautiful Seattle, Washington! Yes, kids, I am in Seattle for BlogHer Food 2012 and not just as an attendee, but I am speaking! I am nervous, but terribly excited, and ready to get the party started! The last month has been a CRAZY travel month for me. First, I went to Camp Blogaway, then I spent 6 days in Tokyo (expect a few Japanese themed recipes in the future – the place is life changing!)
