Gofres with cherries and chocolate {food matters project}


This week’s Food Matters Project recipe calls for Chocolate Cherry Panini. Um, ok. Done! Instead of a sandwich, I tweaked it a bit to make Gofres. As a student studying in Spain, I encountered my first Gofre on a weekend trip to Barcelona. Gofre may literally translate to “waffle”, but in Barcelona these are not […]

Savory Tomato “Tart” {food matters project}


This week’s Food Matters Project recipe calls for a Savory Tomato Crisp. Check out this week’s chef at her blog, The Giving Table.

Gluten Free “No Wheat” Flatbread Pizza (the food matters project)


Tonight for the food matters project recipe, I made my version of this week’s “whole wheat” pizza dough (the “no wheat” kind!). (note: I’ll admit, going low gluten / gluten free was not originally a plan of mine but since doing it I feel great.  Stay tuned for actual information on this seemingly ridiculous life […]

Orange hoisin chicken (food matters project)


This week’s recipe for the food matters project involved rhubarb (which was out of season) and fish nuggets (which we didn’t have), so things derailed a bit and I got creative. Instead, I thought “fruit + meat?…hmmm….orange chicken!” The recipe: Simmer olive oil and garlic on low heat until garlic is fragrant. Add slices of […]

“Cañas y Tapas” Cassoulet (food matters project)
