Cherry Tart Manhattan

Cherry Tart Manhattan

When cherries are in season, a few things come to mind. Tarts and Manhattans. To really break in the cherry, I figured I’d raise the bar with this little booze treat. Cherry Tart Manhattans.

Fiery Brussels Sprouts

Fiery Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Inspired by Chef Matt Cunningham’s hot appetizer from The Sinclair Kitchen, this Fiery Brussels Sprouts appetizer is an explosion of intense heat.

In all these dishes I raved about how much I loved them and that they are my favorite thing. And this Paleo…
