This, my friends, is how you want to use that rhubarb you've been seeing at the market lately. It's a syrup, sure, but I'd venture to guess it's a syrup unlike any you've tasted. It has a lot going on, tartness from the rhubarb, tang from fresh lime juice, a backdrop of sweetness that's anything but shy, and the wildcard finish - rosewater.
Musical pairing – by Joe Cocker Mmmmm Mmmmm Good, Mmmmm Mmmmm Good, That’s what Campbell’s tastes like, Mmmmm Mmmmm Good! So now that this little catch-phrase will be rolling around in your head for the next 24 hours, let’s talk soup shall we?
There is a place at Pike’s Place Market in Seattle that sells these wonderful pumpkin cookies all year round – and they are huge. They are bigger than your hand, and at least 1-2 inches high. They are delicious – you can get them frosted or plain, and both are amazing. I have always wanted to make pumpkin cookies, and I decided it was time.
If there is a befitting time for a cake it would be today. Not only are we gathering the last of the summer harvest anticipating the turning of seasons but we find ourselves in a fit of celebration. Eighteen months of praying, wondering, researching and being challenged to our core all lead up to this day. This morning my husband took one less pill than he did yesterday. Next week he will take another less and so on until by the end of this month my husband will be medicine free for the first time in ten years. I tear up at the thought.
This post is one that’s long overdue. It’s long overdue because there are few things easier and more delicious than this pasta. I am obsessed with it. Of course, my obsession with avocados is nothing new but the idea of blending avocados into pasta was new to me when Angie made it for dinner one Friday night. The fact that avocados are healthy for you is a delightful bonus.

Sorry guys. I am so over cake pops, and mostly over Angry Birds, but I cannot resist them together. Also, no-bake granola bars you eat frozen, and homemade salt water taffy.
There’s nothing like a good chocolate chip cookie… unless of course, if it’s super-sized and more than an inch thick. So when I found this recipe from my aunt’s Nestle Classic Recipes Cookbook a while back, I knew it was a must-make. Serve it warm, with ice cream, with syrup… and with caution… because you’ll definitely want another slice. Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell* 2 large eggs 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened 1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate morsels 1 cup chopped pecans Serve with ice cream (optional)
Crispy Kale Chips December 22, 2011 Mary Anne here. This fall, I spent a glorious eight hours up north in horse country with my favorite girl, Mariel. I just love those quiet, mom-daughter days. On this particular adventure, we stopped for coffee on the way and, while sipping from our paper cups, we perused the goodies at a local farm stand. [...]
I’ve collected these snippets of baking tips from vintage cookbooks and magazines dating from the 1940′s through the 1950′s…the Timeless Wisdom collection is a regular feature on Tipnut where I organize and share all kinds of tips from the past. Vintage Rolling Pin, Eggs & Flour Butter and sugar can be creamed easily when butter is hard by warming the sugar slightly. Light-colored molasses can be darkened to make dark gingerbread by adding a teaspoonful of melted chocolate to each cup of molasses.
This vegan salt and pepper tofu recipe is a great dish to entertain with. I either serve it as an appetizer with tooth picks, or I serve it as an entree with some brown rice. All the components of this recipe can be made ahead and put together just before serving.
If you haven’t heard of cake balls yet, I recommend that you check out Bakerella’s website to see what the fuss is all about. Cake balls are a great little invention; cooked cake batter crumbled and mixed with cream cheese frosting, rolled into balls, then dunked into melted chocolate. Don’t just make these for the health benefits though, they taste pretty darn good too. The recipe says to use any boxed cake mix for the type of flavor you want. For my first attempt I used Devil’s Food Cake mix, and a homemade frosting.
Not sure if you all recall, but a few months ago a reporter asked Kate Moss what one of her favorite quotes was. She replied with: “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Umm…isn’t that hilarious…and sorta sad? I mean, I’m grateful for her honesty. Thank heavens she’s not that skinny while scarfing down hamburgers and fries on a daily basis.
