Tastes like it's indulgent; made as a healthy dish

You know my eating rule- desserts are for the weekend. However, that doesn't mean that I never have cravings on weekdays. I am human, but what I do have is willpower. So, just because I am thinking that some sweetness

Apples & cranberries- meant to be together

Today is officially the first day of fall, so even if the weather feels like summer, it might be time to accept that it's almost time to put the flip flops away. Of course, that also means it's time to get the

Sweetness doesn't get much easier than this.

Perhaps you saw Monday's recipe for Margarita Cake and thought it looked delicious, but it was too much work. Maybe when you saw Wednesday's Cream Cheese Frosting recipe, you thought, "Eh, not my thing." Now it's Friday, and you'd really like some

Who says stuffing has to be savory?

This week's recipes have focused on stuffed dishes: Italian peppers and portobello mushrooms. But appetizers aren't the only things that get to have stuffing. Sure, so do breakfast items, such as stuffed French toast, and main

The flavors of late summer in a bowl.

As I write this post, I'm thinking about the pile of bags and boxes that is growing under my stairs, as my daughter is packing to head to her sophomore year of college. Like many other parents, this time of year

Got zucchini? We've got recipes.

This isn't a recipe that was created off the weekend trip to the farm; rather it's a recipe from the Think Tasty archives, back in the days of yore when I could get zucchini with a quick five minute walk to the local stand.

Don't be fooled by this simple photo; this snack mix is amazing!

This week I have shared two new recipes that are pretty different, which fits into my design of Think Tasty. Although it may be better to have more focus, I enjoy cooking too many things to narrow

Fruit & heat in one fine, chilled soup

We started the week with coconut, why not end it with pineapple? You even could tie the two together with a pina colada; I'd be game for that!

Both the Coconut Crusted Sweet Potato Fries and this Pineapple Gazpacho have an element

Peaches & cherries- meant to be together

We started the week with a chilled soup, why not end it with one as well? As I mentioned on Monday, the options for chilled fruit soups are almost endless. When I wrote that, I was only thinking about puréed versions. If

Why should cucumbers be the only pickled veggie?

Although this is our first summer living in our new loft, this isn't our first summer without a garden. We've traveled more during the last few summers and, as such, haven't had anything besides an herb garden. When you're on the

A Different Sweet & Savory Watermelon Salad

When you want a little crunch with your watermelon

Last minute cookout quandaries be gone.

We've all had those moments. You get a text from a friend that she's holding an impromptu cookout for a few friends. All you need to do is bring a dish to share. Since it's last minute, no one would care if you
