Unless you’re talking about pizza or an enormous bowl of pasta (and aren’t all bowls of pasta enormous?), I don’t think one item covers it as a complete meal. It’s like in sugar cereal commercials where at the end of the spot you see a brief flash of the cereal bowl alongside a pitcher of milk, […]
New England food comes in many forms, and Brooke Dojny has included them all in the newly revised edition of “New England Home Cooking.” The book is a true pleasure to peruse - not just for its wealth of over 350 recipes, but the back story and detail given to each dish. I am always interested in the story behind […]
In my recent Key Lime Pie post, I mentioned that my cousin Jaime opted to use Biscoff cookie crumbs instead of graham cracker crumbs for the crust, which showcased their signature caramel flavor. I have since realized that not everyone knows what Biscoff cookies are, but they should, because “Europe’s favorite cookie with coffee” is a title worth celebrating!
I spent last weekend in Fort Myers, Florida with my sister Courtney, visiting our cousin Jaime, her husband Ben, and their kids – one daughter and two dogs. Bowen (Bowie) is now a toddler, so Courtney and I were delighted to follow her around, read to her, sing songs, and try to get her to say “Auntie.”
I love granola bars. The real kind. For me this means without chocolate chips or loaded with excessive added sugars. I prefer the soft, chewy bar to the crisp, crunchy variety – but either way, a granola bar done right is the ultimate adaptable, portable, healthy snack.
My Great Auntie Anne recently asked me to make a cake for a family event, and then my sister Courtney narrowed it down further by requesting it be a pound cake. It took me about thirty seconds of flipping through my “King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion Cookbook” to decide that it would be Vanilla Pound […]
During my time in Edinburgh I learned about many new-to-me foods. The cafe I worked at got in a fair amount of them, like Irn-Bru, florentines, flapjacks, the ploughman’s sandwich, and three bean salad. It was also where I saw my first carrot and raisin salad, but you will never see me revisiting that particular dish. I truly […]
Now that we are finally enjoying some beach and picnic weather, I thought it would be a good time to celebrate that most famous of portable meals…the sandwich! Are you a sandwich fan? Of course you are. The beautiful thing about sandwiches is that they are for everyone – young or old, rich or poor, […]
Last Sunday I had zero plans and the weather was unpleasant. Basically…a perfect bread day. To be honest, even if the sun had been shining and I only had a few hours, I would have still made time for bread so I could use my King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion Cookbook and dough whisk, both gifts from […]
When I came home from King Arthur Flour this week I brought 2 loaves of bread, several scones, a fruit tart, and savory tomato pie. I tried to eat fast and share the wealth, but that was an awful lot of bread… Fortunately, stale bread doesn’t mean bad bread. It can easily be reinvented as a dessert of bread pudding when cubed and mixed […]
