How to make a DIY Easter basket with Mason jars

Ingredients:
Easter M&Ms
Jelly beans
Other spring-colored candy (about 3 pounds of candy total)
4 Mason jars, 16-ounces, with lids and screw-on bands
4 6- x 6-inch squares of colorful fabric
24 Peeps

Instructions:
Wash jars and lids, then dry completely. Wet jars = melted candy.
Fill each jar with a 1- to 2-inch layer of M&Ms, jelly beans, and other candies. Feel free to layer them in to create layers of color, similar to layers of sand in sand jars.

Insert six Peeps into each jar, making sure to situation them so that they’re pushed up against the side of the jars, facing out.

Fill the rest of the jar with candy, packing well so that the layers and Peeps are held in place. The goal here is to pack the jars so that the candy stays in place – at least until little fingers remove the lid. :)

For each jar, set the flat lid on top of the jar. Place a square of fabric over the lid, and then screw on the threaded band over the fabric.

You may need to poke and prod the fabric to keep it from bunching up while you screw on the band; bunched fabric will get caught in the threads and keep it from sealing.

Keep jars in a cool, dark place for storage.

Homemade chocolate truffles - LOW FAT & DAIRY-FREE!!

Ingredients:
2 cups cashews, soaked overnight in water and fully drained
6 tablespoons agave nectar
¼ cup coconut oil, at room temperature
1 tablespoon food-grade cocoa butter, at room temperature
½ teaspoon finely ground sea salt
½ vanilla bean
½ cup dairy-free unsweetened cocoa powder + more for coating, if you like

Instructions:
In the pitcher of a blender, combine cashews, agave, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and salt. Using a sharp paring knife, slit the vanilla bean down the center and use a spoon to scrape out the tiny beans, adding them to the blender. Blend to a smooth paste. Add cocoa powder and continue to blend until you’ve got a smooth, velvety texture.

Spoon fudge into a bowl and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to solidify. While the fudge is chilling, line a plate with a piece of parchment. Once the fudge has chilled, use a half-tablespoon-sized cookie scoop to drop teaspoon-sized balls onto the parchment.

Place the fudge back in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and once they’re cool, use your hands to roll the fudge into truffle balls. If you like, toss them into a bowl of cocoa powder to coat. Store in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for up to 2 weeks.

The Heartbreak of Success, and A Healthy, Easy, and Cheesy Chicken and Brown Rice Enchilada Casserole

This easy chicken enchilada casserole is very flexible and will happily accept whatever ingredients you have on-hand. Don’t have refried beans? Use black beans instead. Trying to cut down on your grocery bill? Chicken thighs will work instead of breasts. This protein and fiber-packed dish will cure what ails you. It’s comfort food that loves you back. I’ve recently posted two different recipes for enchilada sauce: one super easy sauce, and one somewhat traditional sauce. Use whichever of these you like best, or feel free to use a non-processed canned sauce with no preservatives. As long as you enjoy yourself, I’m happy!

-= Cookbook Author/Food Writer =-
Introduction

Hello! I'm a San Francisco-based food writer, recipe developer, cooking teacher, and cookbook author. I love comfort food of all kinds, from the most savory dinners to sinfully decadent desserts. 

I blog over at TheCulinaryLife.com. My first book, Melt: the Art of Macaroni and Cheese, came out in October 2013 with Little, Brown & Co. I also write for The Huffington Post, Serious Eats, NPR, and other select media outlets.

As I get older, I try to make things a little healthier--which to me means whole, fresh ingredients and throwing in veggies where I can while cutting down on sugar. Ok, well there's still sugar in the desserts. ;)
Bragging rights
So far: countless food articles, thirteen years of blogging, and several cookbooks (though only one under my own name).
