About


  • I'm Kristen, a clumsy but determined home cook and crafter living in the Boston area with my husband, B, and I have an interest in all things food and craft.

    This blog was created to keep track of my various projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity.

Classic Brooklyn Italian Meat Sauce

I’m not from Brooklyn, and I’m actually not even Italian, though I did grow up in a place where 75% or more of the population had at least some Italian heritage, but I’d like to think that all of those years of eating delicious spaghetti dinners at the local Sons of Italy have given me at least a decent ability to tell a good sauce from a not so good one. And, in my not-Italian-but-Italian-food-loving opinion, this is a very good sauce. Actually, it’s more like liquid meat with a little bit of sauce in it. The recipe is a descendant of Bolognese sauce, which I also love, but instead of containing a variety of meats, it only calls for ground beef.

Sugar Free Peach Butter

Several weeks ago, Annie from the Washington State Fruit Commission contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in receiving a basket of Washington fruit to use in my kitchen canning adventures.

Sugar Free Hot Fudge Sauce

A few months ago, I created a sugar free red wine fudge sauce recipe for a feature in Nonpareil Magazine (Issue #04, page 16), and boy is it ever tasty, if I do say so myself. The thick, pudding-like texture of the sauce makes it a great choice for a rich filling for chocolate tarts, too.

Picture it, my living room, three or so years ago. I was at the tail end of an elimination diet (no sugar, dairy, or gluten), which I’d undertaken in desperation after having been told by my doctor that nothing was wrong with me. Yeah, right.

Sugar Free Cherry Ice Cream

Having an ice cream maker at your disposal can be a dangerous thing. I find that, every time I break out the machine to make a batch of ice cream, I have a thousand – well, at least a dozen – flavor ideas swirling in my head, and then I want to make batch after batch of ice cream. This is great for my taste buds, but not so good for my thighs.

Gluten Free Creamy Garlic Pasta with Shrimp & Vegetables

I always feel like I’m getting away with something when I make a dish that tastes like it should have a bazillion calories, but there’s no butter, cream, cheese, or bacon to be found in the ingredient list. Read the rest of this entry »
