I have found the most amazing spice combination ever – harissa, thanks to my new favorite chef, Heidi Swanson, and her cookbook Supernatural Everyday. Spicy raw garlic, tangy lemon, and spicy-smoky powder – so delicious! Harissa is a Tunisian hot sauce that is often added to couscous, soups, and stews. It can be used as a [...]

It’s beyond hot outside, and what’s a better way to beat the heat when the temps are high than to nibble on frozen popsicles?!

Peanut Butter Banana Pecan Sandwich Recipe

That’s a mouthful of a title, right? I forgot to add cinnamon to it, so it’s really a Peanut Butter Banana Pecan Cinnamon Sandwich, and it rocks my afternoon socks off.
