Chicken Noodle Soup

There’s something so comforting about chicken noodle soup. It’s a classic for a reason. This is a bowl o’ health: celery, carrots, onion, garlic, herbs, and chicken, oh my! It’s a huge pet peeve of mine when chicken noodle soup has too few of noodles. You can see my recipe does not have such a…

Fall in Love with Nafplio, Greece

When people ask me about my favorite place I’ve ever visited, I always tell them Nafplio, Greece. I spent a couple of days in Nafplio when I studied abroad in Greece in 2009 and it forever has a place in my heart. I’ve always wanted to tell you about this charming town and I thought…

I also think they’re the perfect size! Monster, bakery-style muffins are quite in fashion right now but I much prefer…

Haupia Pancakes

I know this is high praise, but this might be the best breakfast dish I’ve ever come up with. I had leftover Haupia (get my four-ingredient Haupia recipe here), Hawaiian coconut pudding, and decided to add some to my favorite buttermilk pancakes with toasted coconut for brunch with my mom and we agreed: most epic…

Four Christmas Tables

I adore table settings so it’s no surprise that I get jazzed up about the idea of a holiday table. Here are four festive tables for Christmas: Classic Christmas Red and green never goes out of style. For a Classic Christmas table, pair red placemats with festive green napkins and holiday napkin rings. No tablecloth…

How to Make Sugared Cranberries

What’s more Christmas-y than glistening sugared cranberries? Sugared cranberries are as fun to make as they are to eat! I top my Festive Fiori di Sicilia Cake, Cranberry Cupcakes, and Cranberry Belgian Waffles with these beauties.
