One of my favorite recipes on the blog has been in desperate need of a little makeover… (This was taken during the infamous “Kate takes pictures on the diagonal” phase. It was a confusing time.) This Greek dressing is incredible on a big, tossed green salad, pasta salads, gyros, pitas, and wraps as well as for…

Most of you know that if I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me in the garden.  My husband and I met while studying horticulture in college (he went into medicine and I cook for a living, funny how life takes you places, right?)  and if you follow my Instagram hashtag #SaraGardensBoise you know…

I don’t know about you guys, but summer is wonderful and crazy busy and also so very hot that by the time dinner rolls around, I basically want to sit in a bathtub filled with ice water and hide from my children. Since that’s not a logistical possibility most of the time, here are some…

If you haven’t discovered the beauty of frittatas, it’s definitely something you should explore.  They are the ultimate clean-out-the-fridge meal with endless variations.  It’s kind of like an omlette, if you could make 6-8 omelets at one time and have the oven to most of the work.  Basically you can add any variety of fillings, including…

I was making an appointment over the phone today and they said something about being closed next week for the holiday and I had to frantically run over to my calendar because I had no idea what holiday they could be talking about. When I got there and flipped the page I thought, “What the heck-…

Next week might be Independence Day in the United States, you know, where we celebrate our Independence from Mother England. But. It’s also kind of the mother of all cookout holidays. And while there will always be room for traditional favorites, this twist on traditional coleslaw is one of the best things I’ve made all…

My sweet kiddo turned 7 yesterday and was begging for a “Polar Pizza” he’s seen on giant posters in the windows of Baskin-Robbins.  It’s basically a giant cookie with ice cream on top and some toppings and I knew I could do a homemade version that would kick that Polar Pizza’s behind.  This kid is…

We have a lot of compound butters on the blog–on the sweet side, we have this orange-berry butter, maple cinnamon butter and THE BEST honey butter you’ll ever have in your life, and on the savory there’s this garlic butter with lemon and feta and jalapeño-lime butter. But I realized we don’t have a simple garlic butter…

Lots of you know I kind of collect unique kitchen appliances.  I’ve shared lots of them in my Instagram feed and mentioned them here and there and people are constantly sending emails and messages with questions so I thought it would be fun to start a series to share some of my favorites!  These are…

Two weeks ago, I kept saying to people, “I can’t believe this is June in Louisiana!” It was warm, even a little hot, but it wasn’t overwhelming or stifling.
