Many years ago I cracked the code (dramatic) and made my own Coconut Date Rolls. You can see the recipe here. I was on the go the other day and needed a snack so I picked up some coconut date rolls at the store even though I had all the ingredients at home. Wahh wahhh. Have you had Coconut Date Rolls before? They’re an amazing combination of nuts, coconut and dates. I keep them in the fridge because I like when they’re a little hard. It makes them super chewy. The best part is that they satisfy your sweet tooth immediately. I had one with a cup of tea yesterday at 3PM and all was right in the world.
My friend Adrianna has a new cookbook —The Year of Cozy and I was lucky to snag an advanced copy. It comes out soon, so be sure to preorder! It’s a cookbook and so much more. There are so many DIY projects I want to tackle— like stenciling our front doormat, food inspired flower arrangements and making marbled dish ware. It’s packed with inspiration for every season.
With Autumn being here and wanting to get cozy in the kitchen, I made her Burnt Butter Pear Ginger Crumble. Can you see that edge there? That gooey caramelized piece of pear? Gahhhhh. It was so good.
The burnt butter creates a savory/sweet crust and the fresh minced ginger in the filling is TO DIE FOR. I don’t know why I don’t mix the two flavor profiles more often. Thanks for helping me get in the mood for Fall, Adrianna! It’s awesome to know that you can do good things with burnt butter…cuz sometimes I take my browned butter a little too far….My multitasking gets the best of me sometimes.
