Caramelize​d Pear Spinach Salad with Pomegranates, Pecans, and Craisins

Normally, if I were officially developing a pear salad, I’d naturally think to combine the sweetness of pears with peppery arugula. But, this salad was an unexpected, delicious accident—I love when that happens! 



Cream of Spinach Soup

Quick, satisfying, and nutritious. 



Linguine with White Wine Cream Sauce and Mushrooms

In most pasta dishes and in my recipes in general, I love using fresh herbs as a flavor booster, but I completely did away with them in this dish. The white wine adds enough complexity and aromatic distinction to replace the fresh herbs. 



Sour Cream Apple Pie with Walnut Streusel

Dairy apple pie, mmmmmm. Can’t say more than that. 



Better Than Snickers Dessert Bars

Peanuts, caramel and chocolate is officially the best combo in the world, seriously. This decadent adult treat appeals to the kid inside.
