the best brewed coffee | the domesticated wolf

My old friend! Oh how I have missed you, coffee! I didn’t drink one sip of caffeine (coffee, soda, or tea) throughout my pregnancy.  So when I delivered my baby girl in August, I was more than ready for a big cup of the good stuff. My nana had a great love for coffee and

Truffled Pasta with Garlic and Olive OIl

My mother has been making a version of this recipe for years.  When she was helping me immediately after I had my daughter – though to be truthful it’s been almost three months and she’s still helping me – she made this dish often.  We aren’t huge pasta eaters in our house, but love to

Potato salad is a typical summer food – perfect for BBQs, potlucks and easy dinners.  But, really I’m not a mayonnaise potato salad person.  I am, however, a tangy potato salad person – and this warm herbed potato salad totally hits the spot for me.

Granola Bites

I often find myself looking for a quick bite before I workout – it can be hard to exercise on an empty stomach! But, I don’t want anything too heavy, instead I look for a small snack with sustained energy and tasty flavor. Recently, I’ve had a lot of requests from clients for gluten free

How To Make Beet Hummus

Beet hummus! Beets are one of my favorite vegetables – hearty and rich and so easy to make.  I love beets raw, especially in this preparation for cold sesame beets.  But here, the beets are roasted for extra sweetness and tossed into a simple hummus recipe for the brightest hummus imaginable.  The longer you roast the
