Recipe: Bean Sprout Ponzu Salad

The other day Tara and I stopped by a sushi restaurant and were served a bean sprout salad. Although we did not ask what was inside of it, we put together this recipe based on what we thought it could have been made out of. You can always buy ponzu from the store, but I have included how to make it from scratch. Also, it has to rest for a couple hours, so keep that in mind if you’re hoping to eat this immediately.

Baking Recipe: Pear Cranberry Ginger Pie

I prefer to cook than bake. I look at a recipe and feel like I can improvise more when it comes to cooking on a stove than in an oven. The creative side of my brain works better when something calls for a pinch or a dash versus exact measurements, temperatures, and times. So when I came into a box of Harry and David pears, I knew I was going to make a pie. Starting with a family apple pie recipe in my head, this is my take on a pear pie – plus ginger and cranberry for some added zest.
