Last weekend I made a very delicious lemon buttermilk cake, if I do say so myself. I had more than half a container of buttermilk left and I hate wasting anything (ahh, Thoreau) so I decided to make buttermilk pancakes … Continue reading
A sister-in-law who brings homemade granola when she comes to visit you? PRICELESS
This is an excellent cake for when you have company over, or, if you have more English sensibilities, with an afternoon tea. It could also be a delicious dessert, perhaps with some vanilla or pistachio ice cream. It went so … Continue reading
I made these delicious muffins the other day. Nothing makes you homesick like Momma’s muffin recipe! Just switch out whatever fruit or chocolate you desire. So good you’ll hide them in the fridge when guests come over…
I have no recipe for these amazing donuts at Dough, but I sure would love to know how to make these. They are unbelievable. They definitely seem more yeasty/bready than other donuts I have eaten. This is art.
These muffins are so good. It’s comforting yet the apples and walnuts reduce any sense of guilt. Plus I don’t use butter and I use skim milk. I’m going to try the same recipe with cranberries and white chocolate pieces. … Continue reading
It’s a rare thing that human beings can be neatly divvied up into two categories. But occasionally, situations arise where you either ARE, or you AREN’T. Runny eggs are just such a situation.
I’m back! The honeymoon in Vermont was wonderful and involved much culinary delight. Phil and I usually camp when we vacation, so a resort and spa experience was a fabulous change of pace. But it turns out that rest and … Continue reading
As you can see by Summer’s recent bridal shower update, it’s been a busy week for me. And I have a backlog of recipes to post!
This weekend we celebrated my sister’s upcoming wedding with a fall bridal shower brunch. What a great day it was for the beautiful bride-to-be!
I’m pretty particular when it comes to breakfast. I believe that everyone should eat it, every single day. And if you don’t eat the right stuff, you’re setting yourself up for a day of low energy and snack attacks. So … Continue reading
It’s autumn, and you’re an overzealous New Englander. Sure, you can buy apples at the store a half mile down the street, but you’ve decided to drive an hour north and pay five times on the dollar for apples you … Continue reading
The mother of all pancakes. I don’t think I’ve ever had Bisquick in my life (unless a diner snuck it it). I grew up on these – my dad’s pancakes. Many Sunday mornings Nikki and I would wake up to … Continue reading
I made this in “Family and Consumer Science” in 8th grade. I thought… um, ew, eggs and bacon wrapped together? ga-ross. (Weren’t we all a little Valley Girl back then?).
I really did not know what to expect making this. It sounded good – but I was still a little scared. I love apples, and somehow the idea of mixing apple slices with cheese was a little… egh. However, it was delicious! I would suggest it for a fancy brunch. We had it for dinner and it was very good and I thought quite filling (fiance made himself 2) For example, one of my bridesmaids Lauren is very sophisticated/Audrey Hepburnish - loves French food and knows her cheeses. I would love to make this for her next time she visits.
