PPQ: Guanabana Margaritas

Guanabana Margaritas

It’s my week to host Project Pastry Queen! A turn that happens to coincide with the end of Lent so you know what that means. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. TEQUILA. 40+ days without a margarita. There is much ground to be made up! Have you ever had guanabana? I hadn’t even heard of it before The [...]

Grapefruit Marmalade

Ruby Red Grapefruit Marmalade

Happiness comes in a jar. I’ll also concede that it often comes in a corked bottle. And a salt-rimmed glass. But for today, it’s jarred. Last Christmas, my Secret Santa Megan sent me a jar of her homemade Pink Grapefruit Marmalade in my squee-inducing box of goodies. And it was gone in no-time (as was [...]

Pink Grapefruit Sandwich Cookies

It’s a girl! One of my favorite bloggers and friend Courtney of Cook Like a Champion and her husband are expecting a sweet baby girl soon. (She also has one of the funnest blog names ever.) And our friend Josie has put together a virtual shower to celebrate! I chose to make Pink (er, Ruby [...]

Seared Scallops with Blood Orange Salsa

Scallops with Blood Orange Salsa

I present to you the very original Red Food on Valentine’s Day recipe. My favorite part of winter isn’t Christmas or Thanksgiving. Or the fact that it’s not 112 degrees out every day. Okay, maybe that is my favorite part of winter… but the bounty of winter citrus surely runs an extremely close second. Our [...]

Grapefruit Curd Squares

Grapefruit Bars

Surpriiiiise! It’s another grapefruit recipe! I hope you’re not tired of them. Because I’m not. If you’re thinking that I must have an entire counter piled high with citrus, you wouldn’t be too terribly wrong. We’ve been cooking, eating, drinking, and baking with it a lot lately. It’s hard to pass up those dirt-cheap bags [...]

Fruit Skewers with Yogurt Dip

Fruit Skewers with Yogurt Dip

I don’t think I’ve thrown a party in the last 5 years without a pile of fresh fruit, skewered or cut, and a bowl of yogurt dip along side. I do it partly because there’s usually a real need to balance out the menu with something a little lighter and healthier. And partly because I [...]

Grapefruit Scones

Lighter Grapefruit Scones

With a bounty (15 lbs!) of beautiful Texas grapefruit, Grapefruit Scones were one of the first things on my list to tackle after we replaced our broken oven. I wanted a simple cream scone, studded with grapefruit, that wasn’t to sweet and not too terrible for my waistline. I started with the Basic Cream Scone [...]

Green Monster Smoothie

Green Monster Smoothie

Totally honest here. I would have never, ever tried this if I hadn’t been “January motivated.” That “New Year-Healthier You” high can make a person do really crazy things. Like running to undo that afternoon cupcake snack. And enjoying it. Or deciding to stay in for a healthy dinner and dirty dishes rather than going [...]
