Bananas were never one of my favourite foods, but for some reason, when in loaf form, I was obsessed. Whenever my mom would make banana bread, it was a pretty exciting event. And now, lucky for you, me, and anyone who happens to know where I live and wants to stop by before tomorrow because I'll surely eat it all - I now have the recipe myself!

I was born and raised in Northern Idaho, so there is no vegetable more sacred to me than the potato.They’re just delicious no matter what you do to them. Baked, fried, mashed, au gratin… you name it, I’ll eat it. I have never met a potato that I didn’t like.This is one of my favorite ways to spruce up a baked potato, by baking it twice! You can make this as simple or as fancy as you like. You could do sour cream and chive, or gruyere with caramelized onions. I highly recommend e...

I'm back on the "make breakfast exciting!" train in an effort to make breakfast both more exciting and more filling. You see, by 11am I'm starving and I have to talk myself out of eating lunch before noon. This smoothie barely takes more effort than making a bowl of cereal and let's me get to lunch at a much more reasonable hour.

Judging by the fact that it is still 90°F here, my plea for fall weather has gone unanswered. Fine! I give in. So here’s a recipe that is perfect for summer weather. Although I personally believe that any time is taco time. The great thing about tacos is that they can literally be anything you want. If you take a tortilla and put something in it, it magically becomes a taco. That’s a mathematical fact.

It's good to have a quick and tasty tomato sauce in your recipe arsenal. With a good tomato sauce, a box of pasta becomes a meal. Frozen ravioli become a fancy supper. A ball of store bought pizza dough becomes your world renown famous pizza. You get the picture!Ingredients

Writing this week’s Nomtastic was really hard for me. This time of year is just so strange. It’s still technically summer, but once September rolls around it feels like fall. I was just so torn over what to make. Should I do one last summer recipe, or should I jump on the fall bandwagon?It’s still 90°F here every day so I was leaning more towards summer foods, but I decided to embrace the fall in hopes that cooler weather shows up anyway. Corn is one of those crops that has fall harves...

I love Mexican food. I could honestly have fajitas every day of the week for the rest of my life. Mexican food is just so hearty and awesome - and behind most awesome Mexican dishes is the simple corn tortilla.The tortilla is incredibly versatile. Add a little butter and honey, it becomes a simple dessert. Add meat and toppings, now you have a taco. Cut it up and fry it? Chips! Now sure, you can buy them at the store, but there is something magical about homemade tortillas. Like Ha...

After a long, particularly mind-numbing day, I took myself on a leisurely stroll through Trader Joe's. There I stumbled upon very fancy sounding haricot vert. Basically, they're just thin green beans, but that evening they were a savior from an extremely boring day. No, no, I would not be having green beans for dinner, I was to have chic, cosmopolitan haricot vert for supper.
