Toasted Coconut Iced Coffee

I’m offering you a special coffee treat to make for all the moms in your life. Because we need it. Because we survive on it. Because we deserve it. One sip of this homemade toasted coconut iced coffee and mom will be momentarily transported to a far-flung island with sand and waves and coconut trees, enjoying sweet, highly caffeinated bliss.

Bananas Foster Pancakes

I wanted to kick my breakfast game up a notch, as Emeril Lagasse would say, and invoke the flavors of Bananas Foster. But, I had no desire to be setting things aflame in my kitchen at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning while just sipping my first cup of coffee.

Chipotle Chicken Tacos with Garlic Lime Crema

Street tacos are, and always will be, my definition of a taco. The tiny tortillas are always corn, never flour. They are heated until pliable on the hot flattop or charred over open flame, then kept warm so that they steam together and become so soft that you have to serve them up in a double layer, two per taco. The meat is always well-seasoned, smoky and acidic, with a little char on the edges of each bite.

Goat Cheese Burger with Fig Jam & Arugula

When it comes to sexy food, figs are often ranked near the top, along with finer cheeses, like a nice goat cheese. I’ve brought both together on this burger. And when choosing the greens for this, I went for the intricate, peppery arugula. This burger is unexpected and complex, beautiful to behold, as I find is also true of the very best love stories.
