Domestifluff - Food.Craft.Etc


  • 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.

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 »

Sugar Free Sunflower Seed Butter

Sunbutter — the name alone just sounds friendly, doesn’t it? Actually, Sunbutter is a registered trademark, so I think that I have to call my version sunflower seed butter or something that isn’t Sunbutter.

Quick and Easy Spicy Orange Chicken

We return to that magical June 2009 issue of Bon Appetit for this recipe for a “15 minute” spicy orange chicken. Now, I don’t know about 15 minutes — unless they weren’t including prep time — but this is still a very quick recipe compared to my regular go to orange chicken recipe. No messy breading, no deep frying, just a simple orange chicken with a nice flavor payoff for something that takes so little time. I think that it would be even better if you added some garlic and a little fresh ginger.

Chocolate Cashew Bark

B asked for chocolate bark for Christmas, but he specifically said that he wanted cashews and not almonds or peppermint. Unfortunately, or fortunately if they happen to be your favorites, almond bark and peppermint bark have edged out all other barks for shelf space in the chocolate bark section of the store. In other words, I couldn’t find cashew bark in any of my regular haunts.

Easy Nutty Granola

I never thought that I’d see the day when I actually craved granola, but I crave this granola. This is one of those recipes that, at first, makes you think, “Yah, it’s granola. What’s the big deal?” But then all of the different flavors — toasted nuts, caramelized fruit, a slight saltiness, and a hint of maple and cinnamon — hit your taste buds and you just keep eating and eating. Well, that’s what I do, anyway. B actually requests this granola for breakfast on a regular basis, and he’s not really a granola kind of guy.

Almond Butter

I’ve been wanting to make a non-peanut nut butter for a while now. Cashew butter is still on my list of to-dos, but this time around I went with almond butter. It was so easy to make that I could kick myself for not having tried it sooner. All you need is a food processor, a few ingredients, a little bit of time, and you’ve got a yummy, healthy butter to spread on everything from toast to chicken.
