I love tahini and use it in so many things beyond hummus. I mean…halva? It’s so good. If you’re unfamiliar with tahini, think of it like peanut butter’s sesame seed counterpart. Originating in the Middle East, many cuisines now call for this creamy sesame deliciousness, including Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and some Asian too. And of course, you’ll now find tahini put in so many California-driven dishes —- it’s healthy and makes a really good salad dressing!

I usually like to keep it simple in this space so I will warn you that this recipe takes a bit of time. There are multiple steps but I do think the payoff is worth it! I love cookies with American buttercream vs. royal icing and I wish I saw more of it because it really is much more tasty. I’m not sure anyone has ever said royal icing is delicious. It’s cloyingly sweet and the flavor is super flat. But it does make for some beautiful cookies!

I’m not usually into sweets for breakfast, but when I do have a craving for something sweet in the morning, I go all in. Since bananas foster is one of my favorite desserts, I’m always looking for ways to turn it into a dish that could legitimately be called breakfast. I’ve done a bananas foster dutch baby before, but this weekend I was still jetlagged from a trip around the globe and wasn’t in the mood to fire up the oven.

Side Salad Show Stopper: Green Tomato Mint Salad

While they don’t get much attention outside of agricultural circles, green tomatoes, are unripe tomatoes that are picked prematurely to ensure the ones that are left on the vine grow nice and big. That’s why they often show up at farmer’s markets in spring. For the uninitiated, green tomatoes may seem like an esoteric vegetable with limited uses, but they’re actually quite versatile.

I am an ardent fan of deviled eggs. I have made/consumed caesar salad deviled eggs, pimento deviled eggs, jalapeño popper deviled eggs…the list goes on and on. Yesterday, as I was roaming the chip aisle in the super market, and thinking of deviled eggs, I saw sour cream and onion chips. A light bulb!

A Unique Easter Twist: Pickled Quail Eggs

Easter eggs are fun to color and hide, but I’ve always hated the idea of wasting food. Sure, you could eat them afterwards, but given that they’re green-ring-around-the-yolk hardboiled, they don’t taste very good, and do you really want to be eating eggs that have been sitting out in the sun for hours?
