Homemade Fudgsicles

Homemade Fudgsicles // The Haas Machine

I might be guilty of eating one of these fudgsicles for breakfast a time or two (or three) recently. But do not fear! There’s no added sugar & they contain all kinds of healthy ingredients like bananas & coconut milk & peanut butter, so they’re not the worst breakfast choice I’ve ever made in my life. I figure, summer is short & before you know it, we’ll be packing away our fans & flip flops & complaining about the freezing cold while stuffing our faces full of lasagna, so we might as well enjoy the stickiness of summer with more stickiness that is popsicles.

Roasted Strawberry & Toasted Coconut Popsicles

Strawberries! Strawberries! Strawberries! You guys went ga-ga over the Strawberry Custard Pie I shared on Tuesday, so I hope you’ll dig these popsicles, too. I mean, really, what’s not to love with the combination of strawberries & coconut. No wait. The combination of roasted strawberries & toasted coconut, because it does matter a TON. By simply popping your oil-glazed strawberries in the oven for a bit & slowly bringing your coconut to a lovely shade of golden brown, your life will forever be changed. Now I kinda want to roast & toast everything that comes through our kitchen…  Continue reading

Strawberry Custard Pie with Dark Chocolate Crust

Strawberry Custard Pie // The Haas Machine

This year we went a bit overboard & picked 22 pounds of strawberries. Besides making jam & shoving my face with handfuls of the delicious fruits in between every meal for a week, I discovered a few new recipes to gush over that I’ll be sharing with you over the next few days. I am officially dubbing this strawberry week, even though strawberry picking season is over & done for in these parts. I just can’t help it… strawberries are one of my favorites & practically scream of summer.  Continue reading

Homemade Naan Bread

Sometimes there’s just something really special about taking an extra few minutes to make a recipe from scratch. I get a huge sense of gratification when I can recreate a meal that my family adores, to make it fit our heating styles & even to save a bit of money. Sure, it takes more time than it would be to just pick it up at the store, but sometimes it’s worth it.

I say, “sometimes” because, obviously it doesn’t happen all the time. When you’ve got a meal to prepare & you have other demands thrown on you like tending to children, having a job, doing housework, or heck, just having a social life or spending time with your spouse, making a lot of things from scratch is more likely to leave you panicky & feeling like there’s never enough time in your day. So that’s why I reserve unique homemade recipes for special occasions. Continue reading

Palak Paneer

The thing that I am loving so much about cooking Indian food is that I’m realizing that it’s not as difficult as I assumed it would be. Because we live in a small city that has a pretty lame food scene, one of our favorite things to do when we go somewhere more urban is to eat as many different kinds of ethnic foods as humanly possible. Usually among the mix is eating somewhere that has Indian food because it’s so gosh darn delicious. Over the years we have dined at many Indian restaurants, in awe of the complex & savory flavors & now that I’ve got a few recipes under my belt, we’ll be happily enjoying them more at home.
