What’s Cookin’, Good Lookin’? NEW TO THE BLOG! Quick Sourdough Stuffing with Sausage & Cranberry! 🦃 Toasted sourdough, savory sausage & herbs, and tangy dried cranberries come together for a delicious stuffing! My recipe for Quick Sourdough Stuffing with Sausage & Cranberry is my homage to some of my golden food memories! 🍁 #Thanksgiving is all about family & food. There are some recipes we make to stimulate our appetites, and others that we make to stimulate our memories. Sometimes we can bring back thoughts of loud family gatherings, full of bright conversation and peals of laughter. Other times we remember the quiet moments: a saucepan of warming milk on a gas stove, watching snowflakes falling on the other side of a frosted windowpane. Food has an amazing ability to transport us back in time. 👉🏻 What is your favorite holiday food memory? #straighttothehipsbaby
Let’s talk wine subscriptions for the holidays! #notsponsored Did you know that @justinwine JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery has a wine subscription club?

They are delivered twice a year, in the Spring and Fall. It’s one of the best gifts to get in the mail! 👉🏻 Are you part of a wine subscription or wine club?

Are you looking for a slightly non traditional dessert for this decidedly non traditional Thanksgiving? ✨ Try this luscious Blueberry Curd Tart with Chocolate Cookie Crust! This is a great dessert if you don’t want to spend a ton of time using the oven! A pressed chocolate cookie crust is mixed with butter and a little bit of salt, then prebaked quickly in the oven. 🍋 Similar to a lemon curd, this fresh blueberry curd is creamy & sweet! The vivid purple blue color is due to the juicy little blueberries! Simply fill the crust and then pop into the fridge to set. The crispy cookie crust combined with the smooth fruit filled curd is a match made in heaven! Simply serve with a little plain whipped cream, or decorate with as many fruits & edible flowers as your tart can hold! 👉🏻 Find the full recipe at straight to thehipsbaby.com QUESTION! 👋🏻 Are you a pie, tart, or cake person? #straighttothehipsbaby

🍃Tea... almost every culture has a version. A combination of herbs, spices, medicinal plants, or berries. A way to warm up or to heal, a way to cool down and soothe. 🍂Tea drinking has such ancient roots. From the green tea ceremonies in Asia, to my own (Slavic) family’s love of strong black tea with honey, tea is an elemental flavor. I am thrilled to share that I’m participating in the Special Winter Series of the Produce is Beautiful Project. #produceisbeautifulproject 📸The subject for today is ‘hot tea’, and I’ve presented it in two ways; as the amber colored chai tea in the 2 beautiful hammered copper cups from @williamssonoma, and the same chai is also incorporated into my Vanilla Chai & Pear Bundt Cake! 👉🏻Recipe on my blog, straighttothehipsbaby.com Be sure to follow #specialwintercollabs for more gorgeous shots! Thank you to @allisondavidphotography @aforagersfeast and @produceisbeautiful for hosting! #straighttothehipsbaby
This unseasonably warm weather is making me crave ice cream! As a true New Englander, I will eat ice cream any time and in any temperature! These sunny days with their high temps are just made for sweet and creamy Thai Basil & Lime Ice Cream! 🍃A lusciously creamy base is gently simmered with fresh Thai basil, fresh lime zest, and dried Thai lime leaves. A staple in many Thai dishes, this dried spice is easily found on Amazon or at your local specialty shop. 🍨The results? A refreshing and sophisticated ice cream that’s bursting with luscious basil & lime. Perfect on it’s own, or made into an upscale sundae with crushed peanuts, chocolate, & fresh whipped cream! Find the full recipe on straighttothehipsbaby.com 👉🏻 Are you a year round ice cream eater? I make ice cream all the time in my @cuisinart maker! It’s super quick and always delicious! #straighttothehipsbaby
