Blueberry Dessert Pizza

Blueberry Dessert Pizza

I consider myself pretty lucky! My kids are happy, they are healthy and they still willingly hang out in public with their mom. I do have one complaint though, my son has become the pickiest eater on the planet! Just about the only thing we don’t argue about him eating these days are pizza and blueberries. (Obviously, I…

Ahhhh, Saturday morning – my favorite morning of the week! Besides the obvious reasons why I love Saturday’s so much ( ie: no alarm clock, staying in my pj’s until after 11 and leisurely sipping on coffee) my absolute favorite thing about Saturday morning’s are making pancakes with my little Kashman. He loves separating the…

Berry + Basil Tomato Sauce

I love unexpected flavor combinations, don’t you? Strawberries and tomatoes aren’t the most likely pair, but they actually complement each other rather nicely. The folks at Driscoll’s contacted me last month with a fun summer challenge that I just couldn’t resist. They asked if I could create a savory recipe using their amazing strawberries. I just loved the…

Best Ever Cauliflower Roast

I know what you are thinking, titling this recipe ‘Best Ever Cauliflower Roast’ is a strong statement. I struggled with naming this one for a while. Honestly, it is the best cauliflower dish I have ever had and there really isn’t one name that I could come up with that wasn’t a million words long…

Hibiscus Rosé Mimosas

Move over orange juice and champagne mimosas our weekend brunch tables will be featuring wild hibiscus blossoms and bottles of bubbly rosé instead. We love the sweet and tart flavor combination of rosé and hibiscus, but the way the wild hibiscus blossom petals open up in the glass when rosé is poured over top sends us…

Kale & Quinoa Salad recipe by @beardandbonnet with @Massel on www.beardandbonnet.com

12 Must Make Summertime Dishes with Massel

This kale & quinoa salad is inspired by my 2 favorite superfoods, kale and quinoa! Nick’s restaurant here in Long Beach features a similar salad that I literally crave, but paying $17 for a salad as often as I have the craving for it just doesn’t make sense. So, I created my own version, now I can…
