RECIPE :: NUTELLA MASCARPONE CHOCOLATE TART

nutella mascarpone tart recipe coco kelley_5

This recipe came out of a project that Paola and I worked on together last year for Starbucks, believe it or not! Tasked with creating a few recipes to be paired with their fall blend, and shared on Target! Until now, we couldn’t share it with you, but we thought… what better month than February to bring […]

RECIPE :: MUSHROOM HAZELNUT RISOTTO

mushroom risotto recipe coco kelley_1

For me, a perfect winter recipe is one that is rich and warms your bones, but doesn’t make you feel heavy and sluggish. This risotto is it. The combination of a cheesy risotto base topped with pan-seared portobello and chanterelle mushrooms, flat-leaf Italian parsley, and baked hazelnuts is as fresh as it is filling (very). […]

    Yum! Can’t wait to make this. Totally with you on the filling but not dragging you down thing. Just posted a recipe from Bon Appetit’s Food Lover’s Cleanse on my blog. Lots of great stuff in there!

COCKTAIL RECIPE :: ORANGE POMEGRANATE MIMOSAS

Our traditions run deep when it comes to Christmas morning – I’m sure yours do too. We usually start with presents under the tree, coffee, and panettone. Once the major gifts have been unwrapped, however, it’s time for brunch! And there’s no better brunch than a holiday day brunch, because you know it’s going to be boozy! While I […]

RECIPE :: PINK RASPBERRY SOUFFLÉ

Many of you may remember last year’s colorful Christmas tabletop that I put together – I think it’s gone down in the history books as the most pin-worthy shoot we’ve ever done! Well guess what? There’s more! You may have noticed that we whipped up these sweet raspberry soufflés for a fun dessert (that just happened […]

    I remember those trees. And again, it’s remarkable how you manage to create a beautifully decorated table with matching colors. Regarding the recipe, easy to make when the main ingredient is Joy.

RECIPE :: HOT ARTICHOKE AND CRANBERRY DIP

artichoke cranberry dip coco kelley_4

Confession: I’m the type of person who creates a spreadsheet for holiday dinners. I make sure that the turkey, the side dishes, the drinks are all covered… but I always always forget about the appetizers. Not this year! Dips are a perfect appetizer and a host’s best friend. They only require a few minutes and […]

    Looks so delish! This feels like such a silly question but did you use canned artichoke hearts? If so, is there a brand you recommend? The artichokes look so much better than the canned ones I’ve tried to use in the past that were too salty, too soft, and generally a real disappointment!

      We used jarred ones – I get mine from Trader Joe’s! Some are flavored, and some aren’t so be careful which ones you grab!! For dip, it doesn’t matter quite as much since they get baked in anyway, but I know what you mean!

    Welp, I’m officially making this on Saturday when I host the 2nd Annual Perfect Fall Day for some girlfriends. Will report back! :) Also grateful to know which artichokes you bought.

    I am planning to make this for a Christmas party next weekend. What size baking dish did you use? I’m thinking of picking up a new Le Creuset at Williams Sonoma…
