Fall’s a busy time, but I’m here to help with this non-recipe recipe. You have only five minutes to run into the market after work to get fixings for dinner, right? Well, a sheet pan dinner is perfect for a weekday meal, so here goes:

A galette is my favorite kind of pie. I make them savory and sweet in equal numbers. In the fall, I fill them with butternut squash and apples and sage, but come spring I love to fill them with the beautiful fruit I have access to in Southern California.

I'm married to a Buffalo boy and that whole wings thing is kind of sacred, but we live in California, and I do believe I updated this Super Bowl Sunday staple in a very western way.  My secret ingredient is the Smoky Paprika. I think it really makes the flavor both tra...

I'm excited to share this long time favorite recipe.  I usually serve these at finger-food heavy cocktail parties, but I also like to serve it at brunch in larger squares or make for kids' lunches.  Best thing about these is that they are great warm, but also just as f...

It didn't seem like there was anything in the house for a Halloween meal... but lo and behold, we pulled it together.  This is a less than 30 minute meal, perfect to whip up before little trick-or-treaters head out.  Or after, when you need something to go with a nice...
