Fennel, Broccoli, Spinach and Zucchini White Naan Pizza

I LOVE naan pizzas, so naturally I had to make a new version with some vegetables I had on hand! 🙂 If you have been following my recipes on Taproot Farm, you may remember my “Simple and Flavorful Baked Brie, Kale & Hakurei Turnip Naan Pizza“. And, if you have been following “The Kitchenologist” since…

I’m having a lot of fun creating mini cakes lately! They’re ideal for individual serving sizes for parties and special events.

Dark Chocolate Chickpea, Tahini and Peanut Butter Candy Easter Eggs: Chickpeas, Tahini, Peanut Butter, Maple Syrup, Almond Extract and Vanilla Extract, Blended to Creamy Perfection and Dipped in Dark Chocolate

I was never a huge “candy lover”. In fact, growing up my brother would end up eating most (if not all) of my candy because I showed minimal interest in it. Which is surprising, because I do have a HUGE sweet tooth – hand me any dessert and I’m there. One candy I did enjoy…

Bright Rainbow Bell Pepper Brunch: Eggs Over Easy in Bell Pepper Slices, Topped with Fontina Cheese and Sprinkled with Black Pepper and Parsley, Drizzled with Hot Sauce, and Served with Seed Toast

Spring is (technically) here, but it doesn’t feel like it! Especially with another snow storm making its way through (we are NINE inches and counting so far here!). So, I decided I wanted something colorful to brighten the day and crafted this bell pepper brunch tray! It’s the perfect balance between sweet, spicy, and savory,…

Irish Hunter’s Pie: Base Layer of Mushrooms, Peas, Carrots, Broccoli, Onion, and Garlic, Middle Layer of Ground Venison, Topped with Creamy Mashed Potatoes and Cheddar Cheese, Drizzled with Gravy

If you are going to make anything this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, make this Hunter’s Pie. Granted, I know most of you will not have ground venison on hand (I can thank my Dad for that), but there are many other meats you can substitute or you can even do a meatless version!…
