12 Oct Sweet Potato + Apple Tian

Even though it's still blazing hot here in LA, it IS actually fall and with that comes the bounty of autumn produce. The display of apples at the market today made me swoon, and I knew something had to happen with them in my kitchen today. Since my sweet tooth is mostly limited to dark chocolate and pie making is better left to the genius bakers in my life, I went all savory on those little bites of fall. The resulting recipe: a gorgeous spiral of a sweet potato, potato, and apple tian. While it takes time to bang out the spiral (but even with my lack of patience I didn't lose my mind, so don't fret), it's totally worth the effort to be able to set this beauty on your table.

07 Dec Southern Style Hanukkah Potato Latkes

These ain't your Bubbe's Chanukah latkes.

24 Jun Ricotta Crostini

Ricotta Crostini Yield: About 24 Crostini Cook Time: 30 Minutes I love appetizers, so much beauty and deliciousness in one to two bites (and who doesn't love eating things with their hands? )  When eating out, small plates and apps are one of my favorite ways to try a bunch of different things at a restaurant. When cooking, they are a fun way to experiment with new flavor combos.  These crostini are a great way to start off a dinner party while your guests wait for the main event, or a shining star for a cocktail party. My recipes listed here are just a sample of the unlimited possibilities,  get creative and play around with different cheeses, breads, spices, and toppings! Enjoy! xo Stephanie     Ingredients Crostini 1 French Baguette, sliced diagonally and cut in half 1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt   Toppings Apple Honey Hazelnut Crostini Zest from 1 Lemon to Garnish 1/4 Cup Toasted Hazelnuts 1 Apple, thinly sliced Honey Lemon Ricotta Base   Basil...
