FROZEN NO BAKE BITES to the rescue! These little gems save me on car rides, at endless sports tournaments, packed into lunches for a treat or a quick after-school snack. (Sometimes they help me out when I’m needing something sweet but don’t want to steal my kids’ candy—because that’s wrong, Right?).Read More
When it comes to bread, I go to James Beard and my trusty, oil stained and flour dusted copy of his Complete Book of Breads. This pizza dough is like a 101 in bread making. It’s forgiving, fun and fast.Read More
I love this recipe by @melissadarabian ...it’s a crowd pleaser and my kids eat it up! I follow her recipe to the tee ... only subbing out the vegetable oil with olive oil. But this time I was able to buy fabulous Bone Broth @pepperplacemarket so I subbed out the chicken stock as well (I'm getting in those functional foods: apple cider vinegar, bone broth).Read More
When I married my southern hubby, I had to change my understanding of cornbread. He likes it sweet. So I am always trying to marry my northern roots with his southern traditions (and avoid dumping 2/3 cup sugar into mix!).Read More
There are certain foods I become obsessed with making. Scones are one of those foods. My obsession began in NYC working above Dean & DeLuca. I have so many variations and make them according to what is in season. So, blackberry lemon scones are on deck today. Wonderful with coffee but not overly sweet. Just enough.Read More
If I was going to be a fragrance it would have to include Meyer lemons (lavender too, but not with the chicken😂). I love this easy roast chicken. Perfect family dinner and your house smells, well like Home.Read More
When Meyer Lemons are a happy surprise at the store, we make Lemon Bars. Hannah and I spent a great afternoon in the kitchen prepping oats and yogurt, and then these little bites of sunshine.
I first attempted Aioli in the early 90s while reading “A Year in Provence.” I had just returned from living in France and missed the flavor-FULL, “yellow like the sun’ dip/spread/sauce that was ....well everywhere!Read More
Great little snack idea. If you love crunch and need more veggies and protein, then this is for you.
It’s Mediterranean week in the Bevil house......when I meal plan for the week I stick with a region, similar flavors so less waste..... and this is a must have all the time!Read More
So not an expert, but salsa is more liquid-y (is that a word...? eh, good enough). This chunky, mango pico takes most foods (heirloom tomatoes, black beans, fish, burgers, chicken.... seriously, I could go on) from "meh" to magical. Easy, quick and oh so yum.Read More
A healthy snack that doesn't involve apples, nut butter or hummus😂! Need to get your veggies in? BUT want crunchy, rich, and a bit salty? I've got you covered. My French host family made this for me and I've never looked back.Read More
For my 30th birthday, my client Daniela gave me a molcajete and, more importantly, her family’s guacamole recipe 😛🙌🏻 Although I love guacamole ALL ways (lime, garlic...even bleu cheese added), this reminds me of my sweet friend.Read More
It's a great time of year. I mean, who doesn't like Spring? The weather starts to warm up - then drops to frigid temperatures again crushing all hope of an early summer - only to sneak back up to the mid-seventies for a hot second before dropping back down, dragging our morale along with it.Read More
