Cheddar and Chive Biscuits + Sea Salt and Maple Butter

January 31, 2012

A couple of years ago, I ate at BLT Fish in New York. I don’t really remember much about the meal or even what I ordered, but I do remember thinking how nice it was that they gave me this: It’s a recipe for their cheddar and chive biscuits, which they serve before the meal. [...]

This is the best kind of cake in my book–a “no fuss” kind of cake. The ingredients are minimal, it bakes in about 10 minutes, and you scoop it out with a spoon (no knife required). And lucky for me, warm chocolate cakes go over especially well with my husband. He’s the type of guy [...]

I’ve been experimenting with different combinations of fruits and vegetables and so far my favorite juice is a green juice made with apples, lemon, kale, spinach, and cucumber. It sounds [...]

Happy 2012! I’m back from the Midwest and am officially (kind of) tired of eating cookies and other holiday treats. Like a lot of other people, I’m trying to recover from end-of-year feasting and want to start the new year on a healthy note. So the first thing I decided to bake this year is [...]
