So, who here is done with all of their Christmas shopping? Who here is NOT done with all of their Christmas shopping? Me! Oh, oh! Pick me! It’s me! Okay, to be fair, Christmas isn’t a big thing here. In fact, we’re throwing a TOP SECRET Christmas party that isn’t supposed to be called a […]

Salted Caramel Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

Salted Caramel Chocolate Shortbread Cookies (5 of 8)

My best friend is always telling me I am optimistic. My other best friend (yes, I know…I have two best friends) calls me chica loca (If you have no Spanish to reference that to, that’s Crazy Chic – although how you went so long without learning how to say ‘crazy’ in Spanish is simply loco! […]

Foodie Friday Favorites

Last week was our biggest week ever, coming in at over 300 links! So, thank you! You are awesome! And because it was our biggest week ever, I decided I didn’t have to limit my #FoodieFriday favorites this week! Okay, I did end up having to refine my choices just ever so slightly…if I posted […]

Cranberry Coconut Coffee Cake Muffins

Cranberry Coconut Coffee Cake Muffins

Recently, I saw something online about a dating site…for foodies. My first thought was, “Why would that be a site that would work?” I mean, I know it’s good to have a few things in common and everything, but choosing your dating or even future life partner based on whether or not he’s a foodaholic?! […]

My Favorite Picks from Foodie Fridays 21

Hi guys! Welcome to #FoodieFridays! How have your weeks been? Mine has been busy…I’ve officially decided that if I could have one superpower it would be to freeze time. You know what I’m talking about, the kind of time freezing where everyone else stands there like a statue while you zig zag between them and […]

Warm Roasted Grape and Curried Chicken Salad in 30 minutes

Warm Roasted Grape and Curried Chicken Salad

I love meals that come together in one bowl. They make quick dinners that can be easily packed in a Tupperware container and brought to work the next day. And when I eat a healthy lunch? I feel like I’ve become master of the universe (until it’s time to make dinner, of course). Warm salads […]

Harissa, or a Middle Eastern Spicy Sauce

Harissa Spicy Middle Eastern Sauce

  Today’s recipe is somewhat a surprise twist to what I thought would be my next post for a couple of different reasons. The first is that I’ve always been somewhat ambivalent towards harissa. I love the idea of harissa. It’s spicy, bright red, and you can test the peppers in it. On the other […]

Arg. Harumph. Pumpkin season is fast-approaching its end. We’ll soon be on to eggnog-infused desserts and gingerbread cut-outs and Christmas what-nots and whose-its. And I’ll be here, all by my lonesome, morning the loss of the great pumpkin season ’14. Sigh. Alas, we still have a few glorious weeks until Thanksgiving – which means pumpkin […]

Chocolate Chunk Almond Banana Protein Muffins

Chocolate Chip Almond Muffins

If you’ve followed Curried Cantaloupe over the past year, you may already know how much I love breakfast. (We made coconut orange smoothies, french toast pancakes, and funfetti waffles after all.) I’m a total morning person. No, I don’t get up to do yoga or anything. Nor do I set out for a 5 mile […]

Happy Halloween! I’ve got my pumpkin socks on and I’m ready to scare my students (then give them candy:) with a little video called “The Life and Death of a Pumpkin” in class today. Have you see it? Basically, if you only hear the audio, it’s pretty gruesome (oh the torture we put pumpkins through […]
