The closer I get to my due date, the clumsier I become in the kitchen. A day doesn’t go by when I don’t splatter a vibrantly colored sauce or compote across the room or drop toast in the counter gap next to the fridge. These blueberry london fog popsicles nearly dyed my curtains. I write this as I notice the sun shining through a splash of egg yolk I apparently forgot to clean off the windows two days ago. Blame it on my balance. This round belly interfering with all things cooking related (and photography/tripod related too, for that matter).

As we head into the slow-down days of summer, I can’t figure out if my longing for vacation is because it’s that time of year or because I’m just plain tired from being 36 weeks pregnant. Probably both. I’d like to take the next 4 weeks to just entertain friends in the backyard sun with iced tea, grilling, and this gluten-free brown sugar peach crumble – while the tots splash in the kiddie pool.

This peach crumble is the fourth recipe in my year-long partnership with Bob’s Red Mill. First we ate chamomile oat waffles, followed by matcha macarons with mango buttercream, then buckwheat crepes with roasted cherries & chocolate, and now we’re diving into summer with this brown sugar peach crumble. It’s time to invite your friends over for a backyard bash.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie à la Mode Popsicles #popsicles #strawberrypie #recipe #rhubarb

I’ve been obsessed with popsicles for a long time – I mean, who hasn’t right? This is no revelation. But my love of popsicles transcends normal dessert fandom. It goes back to the days of the ice cream truck rolling down my street, which in my opinion is a completely misnamed entity that should be called the popsicle truck for that’s primarily what it peddles. My pipe dream is to drive a popsicle truck that blasts showtunes and hawks things like these strawberry rhubarb pie à la mode popsicles or maybe these chocolate banana tahini popsicles.

We’re celebrating Lucas’s birthday today. It’s not a huge milestone birthday, but between juggling a toddler, being 34 weeks pregnant, getting our house ready to accommodate another human, and 6 months of work packed into the next 3 to 6 weeks, it feels like a milestone that the day didn’t pass by without one or both of us forgetting. I started early this year by concocting the perfect drink in Lucas’s honor in partnership with OXO using my favorite beverage tools. It’s a twofer or maybe even a threefer with his birthday, Father’s Day, and our 5 year wedding anniversary all in the next 2.5 weeks.

Loaded Smoked Gouda Garlic Bread

date06.04.18

Loaded smoked gouda garlic bread topped with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, and sopressata salami makes a quick and easy appetizer for summer entertaining. Imagine buttery garlic bread with smokey cheese and meat layered on top – the only way to make garlic bread even more addicting!

Loaded Smoked Gouda Garlic Bread #garlicbread #fathersday #recipe

With Father’s Day on the horizon, I’ve been thinking up the perfect menu for Lucas. The quickest way to my husband’s heart is through food…namely, cheese. Which is fortunate for me because I’ve partnered with Roth Cheese to create a cheesy recipe for Father’s Day and/or summer entertaining. This loaded smoked gouda garlic bread is on call for both!

It definitely fits the bill as far as Lucas’s top food likes go. He’ll make garlic bread as a midnight snack sometimes, so I’ve loaded it up to make it even more addicting. Is there cheese? Check. Smoky notes? Check. Cured meat? Check. Artichokes? Check. I may have embellished with the arugula for some extra festivity. Though you know what? He does love salad greens without dressing (this is totally his thing), so maybe it’s part of the checklist after all.

Ghee Corn Flour Waffles with Sumac Veggies & Basil Yogurt Sauce

My ideal Sunday brunch menu is quite possibly entirely made up of waffles. I’m certain I could never tire of those crispy brown exteriors with soft fluffy centers topped with various sauces and flavors. There’s certainly no shortage of waffles here on Snixy Kitchen: these or these or these or these or these.  These soft and fluffy ghee corn flour waffles with sumac veggies and basil yogurt sauce are no exception. I’d like a buffet of all of the waffles just once in my life.

Double Kale Salad with Creamy Pistachio Dressing

date05.23.18

An addicting double kale salad to rule all kale salads: tender curly kale leaves massaged with creamy pistachio dressing topped with crispy roasted kale chips. Roasted salted notes and a slightly sweet creamy dressing, this salad is anything but standard.

Double Kale Salad with Creamy Pistachio Dressing

The world needs another recipe for kale salad right now like it needs another recipe for avocado toast, but when the kale salad is this satisfying, you make exceptions. It’s got double the kale. I know what you’re thinking – what does that even mean, Sarah?? We all know what double chocolate cookies are – they’ve got chocolate cookie base with chocolate chips – but double kale salad? Basically the same thing – we’ve got a basic kale salad base with crispy KALE CHIPS on top.

This double kale salad is my take on a kale salad that stole my heart at Alden & Harlow on our trip to Boston last month. The kale chips weren’t listed on the menu description for their ubiquitous kale salad and the ambience was so dark that it wasn’t until a couple bites in that we all realized what was happening on top of the pile of curly greens. Kale chips make this kale salad anything but ubiquitous.

Gluten-Free Vanilla Raspberry Cake

date05.14.18

Easy gluten-free vanilla raspberry cake with raspberry cream cheese frosting and raspberry dust on top. Made in a 9×13 baking pan, this sheet cake is the perfect dessert to serve a crowd this summer!

Gluten-Free Vanilla Raspberry Cake

This crowd-pleasing gluten-free vanilla raspberry cake will be joining all my summer potlucks, gatherings, and cake-eating occasions. Relatedly: Is “Friday” a cake-eating occasion? Do my husband and I binge-eating cake in front of the TV with our cats count as a crowd? I think yes and yes.

I’ve swirled raspberry frosting over this vanilla raspberry sheet cake for my second recipe in a three-part series to show off how I use OXO’s kitchen tools all the time. Last month, we had gluten-free strawberry balsamic & thyme galettes and now we’re diving (literally) right into raspberry season and this gluten-free vanilla raspberry cake with raspberry frosting.

Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza with Asparagus

date05.09.18

I bring you hash brown breakfast pizza – melty cheese between layers of crispy hash browns topped with more cheese, shaved asparagus, basil, and the perfect runny egg. Reward yourself with the most delicious breakfast or brunch to share with someone you love or eat entirely by yourself!

Hash Brown Breakfast Pizza with Asparagus

We keep a relatively healthy pantry and fridge – mostly produce, grains, a little organic meat/fish, and lots of cheese (like I’m talking an entire crisper worth of cheese…and then some more in the garage fridge). When we buy processed foods like crackers or chips, they’re primarily made from ingredients we can pronounce and trust. And because we trust what we buy, I also believe in eating what my body craves without feeling an ounce of guilt. Homemade dessert? Check. Cheese? Check. Cheesy hash brown breakfast pizza covered in more cheese? Check. (Full disclosure: This is just my personal approach to food – I am no dietician).

For Mother’s Day, I’m partnering with Roth Cheese to appreciate the ways I reward myself for the everyday simple things that feel like great accomplishments. Today that looks like this cheesy hash brown breakfast pizza with shaved asparagus, basil, and a runny egg.
