Chicken Skillet Dinner

I’m really into easy dinners. Very few of my dinners are really complicated, and if they are, they’re really good. Sometimes, I just need a quick dinner without much fuss. But every once in awhile, I make a no fuss dinner which tastes as good as a complicated meal. This is one of those unicorn recipes.

Best Chocolate Cake, Vegan Version too!

This dense yet fluffy, dark chocolate cake ticks all the boxes of a cake with purpose, not just a  carrier for sweet sweet frosting or a companion to ice cream.

I realized Rosh Hashanah was approaching, calling to me, and although I’m not Jewish, I can appreciate holidays that require round, sweet breads to celebrate. 

Best, Most Perfect Pie Crust

I wasn’t ever going to write this post but here I am, ready to give away my pie crust secret. Why? Maybe I've found transparency is queen in my new 34 year old self. I used to think pie crust was the easiest thing to make, everyone must know how to make it, but then again, I used to think a lot of things that have been swiftly disproven.
