Zucchini-Blueberry Crumble Muffins

Here in my neck of the woods, summer is over in a big way. It’s fall, for sure, and with the change in seasons comes a change in the vegetables available at the farmer’s market. Pencil-length cooking zucchini morph into giant, oblong zucchini-squash: the kind bigger than Little Oats. So, loaded down with zucchini, and [...]

Mocha Brownies

Mr. O and I love to entertain. We’re not fancy about it; I don’t have pretty placemats, or even cups that match, but we love to cook for people. Typically, Mr. O takes care of dinner and I handle dessert…with the caveat that we never make the same thing twice.  Though I have several recipes [...]

Deep Dish Cast Iron Cookie & Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

I was asked during a job interview once what my greatest accomplishment in life was (I was 23, come on man). At the time I didn’t have an answer, so I gave a sarcastic one. But if I were asked now, I would probably say this cookie. As soon as I saw this recipe on [...]

Fig Frozen Yogurt

I’m pretty sure this is the best time of year for fruit. Summer’s berries, melons, and stone fruits don’t seem to be letting up, but we’re also starting to get local apples, pears, and grapes. Oh, and figs! For the longest time I had only ever eaten dried figs, but the first time I tasted [...]
