Valentines Day Chocolate 2014! | cookingontheweekends.com

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear “Valentines’ Day?” Is it hearts?  Red and pink?  Romance?  Sweet friendships?  Or is it chocolate? I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below the post.  (You’re probably not wondering — but if you are, for me it’s chocolate.)

Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipe: Mocha Truffle Bars Recipe

Valentine's Day Dessert Recipe:  Mocha Truffle Bars | http://www.cookingontheweekends.com

With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks away, I’ve got chocolate on my mind.  (More than usual, that is.) I’m combining chocolate with coffee, and well, that’s love. I could talk about how amazing this recipe is for quite a while, but you’ll have to try it to find out for yourself, that this dessert […]

Valentine’s Day Dessert Recipe: Blood Orange-Champagne Crème Brûlée

Valentine's Day Dessert Recipe:  Blood Orange-Champagne Creme Brûlée | Cooking On The Weekends (http://www.cookingontheweekends.com)

This isn’t chocolate.  And it’s a Valentine’s Day dessert.  Who am I!? I’m the girl who is only okay with a non-chocolate dessert (for Valentine’s Day, or otherwise), when it’s super creamy, rich and delicately flavored with seasonal fruit.  Specific enough?

More apples! Though you could use other apples for this recipe, I used a very special variety.  And I almost ate all of them before I cold get them in the pan, with a little help from my boys, who especially love their name — Green Dragon Apples.

Friday Flowers: Sunflowers and Maple-Pecan Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookie Recipe {Gluten-Free}

Sunflowers and Maple-Pecan Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookie Recipe {Gluten-Free}

The other night I asked my 9-year-old son, who has Celiac Disease, what type of gluten-free cookie I should try to create next.  After thinking for a moment, he said, “a maple cookie.”  And by “maple” he meant our adorable Goldendoodle, named Maple (see image below recipe).  Whether he meant cookies for Maple, cookies shaped […]

Non-Fat Chocolate-Cherry Frozen Yogurt Recipe

Non-Fat Chocolate-Cherry Frozen Yogurt Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

Today I’m going to share something personal with you.  (Nothing too juicy.) Earlier this year I was told by my doctor that my cholesterol (the bad kind – LDL), was “way too high.” I was totally taken aback.  I’m young (ish ;-)), on the thin side, and for the most part, I eat a very […]

Fig Up Side Down Coffee Cake Recipe

California Fig Up Side Down Coffee Cake | Cooking On The Weekends

Sometimes the best flavor combinations are completely unexpected.   Figs and coffee.  It’s a brilliant pairing. I wouldn’t love a breakfast consisting of a hot cup of coffee and fresh figs — though, independently, they are both delicious. You see, I prefer to combine fresh figs and coffee . . .  in a cake.  And coincidentally, […]

Chai Spiced Peach-Blueberry Cobbler Recipe {Gluten-Free}

Chai Spiced Peach-Blueberry Cobbler Recipe {Gluten-Free} | Cooking On The Weekends

Creative and comforting food for casual entertaining. That pretty much describes my cooking — and this cobbler.  Don’t think for a minute comfort foods are limited to fall and winter.  This cozy, delicious dish is both the essence of summer and comfort. If you enjoy a warm cup of Chai tea, and you’re happy it’s […]

So you know I have huge crush on summer strawberries, right?  Well, now I’m seriously flirting with them. As I told you when we made our Lemon-Basil Strawberry Caprese, I buy six baskets of strawberries at a time.  I’ve been doing this every Sunday at my local Farmer’s Market — and they just keep getting […]

How to Peel and Cut a Pineapple: A Photographic Guide

How to Peel and Cut a Pineapple:  A Photographic Guide | Cooking On The Weekends

There’s not much better than the sweet taste of fresh fruit at the peak of its season.  I am in love with summertime strawberries, mangoes, melons and of course pineapples! This gorgeous fruit might be daunting for some to break into, and that might lead them to the canned fruit isle of the market.  Don’t […]
