Truffle Parsnip Fries

You guys.  These fries.  They are both candy and potato chip addiction level.  Maybe you’ve had parsnips before and you think, “nah, not my thing.” But then you have these parsnips, and you’re immediately, “these are crack, I need all the parsnips.” Because while a parsnip purée is lovely and all, this is hands down…

Best Bone Broth

First, I want to apologize for not being as active with my recipe sharing as I’d like to be.  I have friends begging me for recipes, and…well, with 5 month old and 5 year old little boys, it is harder than I thought to find the time to cook, photograph, write, edit, etc. etc.  Luckily,…

Thyme to Come Back

It has been one year folks.  One year since I took a break from this site to grow a baby, birth a baby, and get through the first couple months of said baby’s life. But I miss you guys.  I miss writing about the food I’m making.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram (caitlins_cupboard),…

Pumpkin Pie Cake

We love to make fun of “Pumpkin Spice Season,” but in reality…we all secretly love it.  Right?  Right?! It is just a delicious flavor, and I’d be happy to eat it all year round, but the warming spices of cinnamon, ginger, cloves and allspice really do lend themselves to chilly weather quite well.  There IS…

Buckwheat Banana Date Cake

I have a confession: I suck at baking. I don’t like to follow directions.  My ego wants me to put a bunch of ingredients in a bowl, wave a magic wand, and create something delicious.  It’s easier to do this with savory dinners in a pot on a stove than it is in baking.  Baking…

Detox Mango Fruit Pops

Hi friends!  I hope this summer has been going swimmingly for you.  We have a few weeks left to enjoy (or curse) heat.  In these dog days, frozen treats are pretty irresistible.  They are usually pretty sugar-packed, too.  But these frozen fruit pops can assuage your guilt because not only do they have a delicious…

Summer Fresh Potato Salad

Let’s face it; potato salad is NOT salad.  And if you’re making it with typical store-bought mayonnaise, it’s filled with some no-good types of fat and chemicals. Potatoes are delicious, and they are A-OK in my book, even though they are often vilified for being one of the “white foods” that are known to raise…

The Best Summer Salad is Peach Salad

August means stone fruits.  And stone fruits are delicious.  Peaches are probably my favorite of the bunch.  And sometimes summer is hot and you don’t want to cook anything.  Salads are a great way to not have to cook, but many people think salads are boring or gasp….gross.  I’m here with a recipe to change…

Gluten Free Zucchini Fritters

I’m baaaaaa-aaaack!!  It has been way too long since I’ve shared a recipe with you.  And now that I have a beautiful working kitchen again, I’m getting back in the groove. I spent the entire day today in the kitchen experimenting with a few things.  And I am pretty sure that this recipe is considered…

I’ll Be Back

By all means, make an Arnold voice when you read that.  I know things have been a little slow on the Cupboard front recently, and I wanted to reach out to let you know that things will be picking up again shortly! Momming a 4 year old has been pretty time consuming of late, and…

Master Cleanse Salad

Some of you may have heard of the Master Cleanse in which you spend a few days up to a few weeks drinking a concoction of water with lemon juice, Grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper.  Now, I’m not going to go into my thoughts and opinions on cleanses as I feel the validity…

Healing and Preventing Cold Sores Naturally

I have an embarrassing confession. I am a life long sufferer of herpes.  You might know them as cold sores. There are different kind of sores that can occur around and in the mouth, but Herpes Simplex Virus – 1 is the viral cause of recurring sores.  They begin as a deep itch and
