Cheddar Oat Crackers

I’ve had some rolled oats in the cabinet for a while, and I decided to try this recipe to use them up. It’s a healthier version of my cheddar parmesan crackers, and the oats give them a heft that makes them a more filling snack so you will eat fewer and get full faster. Perfect … Continue reading »

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

These crunchy chocolate mint cookies are a riff on Thin Mints, and I suppose if you dipped them in chocolate instead of drizzling, they would be exactly alike. I’ve always been a big fan of Thin Mints, and I will definitely be making these again. They’re a great addition to your holiday cookies, but they’ll … Continue reading »

Farinata

This is a traditional Ligurian recipe made from chickpea flour, so it’s gluten-free. I particularly liked making it really thin, so it gets nice and crispy. You can change the toppings or leave them off completely, and it’s a delicious hearty snack. This is an adaptation of an original recipe from Marcella Hazan, the Julia … Continue reading »

Lemon Bars

Lemon bars are a favorite of mine during the summer. I love the tart freshness, especially when it’s hot outside. This recipe from the Flour Bakery cookbook is a pretty decadent version, with lots of eggs and butter, but it’s worth it. Fortunately, I brought these to a barbeque, so I wasn’t tempted to eat … Continue reading »

Faux Milanos

I found this recipe on Serious Eats and I couldn’t wait to try it because I love milanos. I know, they’re probably not that good for you and have tons of things in them that I can’t pronounce, but I love them. And that’s even more reason to try this recipe. It was also the … Continue reading »

Peanut Butter Cookies

So, I went a little nuts with the baking last weekend because I was baking for the New Music Bake Sale in Brooklyn. I made two kinds of cookies and some banana bread, and it was tons of fun. I realized after the fact that I should have made my gougeres since they are probably … Continue reading »

Pizza with Pesto, Arugula, and Prosciutto

I love most kinds of pizza, but my favorite will always be the NY slice. I’m particular about the slice too– I prefer a slice with a crispy crust, flavorful sauce, and not an excessive amount of cheese. The crispy crust is key, and I usually prefer when I get the reheat– they put the … Continue reading »

Brandied “Maraschino” Cherries

From time to time, we have Manhattans while hanging around the apartment. We never buy Maraschino cherries though, so they’re never quite right to me. This past Christmas, I was thinking about what I could make and give away. I usually do something chocolate or even cookies, but this year I wanted to do something … Continue reading »

Raspberry Blueberry Muffins

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite bakeries in the world is Flour Bakery in Boston. I remember Sunday mornings and trying to decide what I wanted most. I’ve been waiting to try the muffin recipes from the cookbook, but it’s usually a last minute thought and I don’t regularly keep Creme Fraiche lying … Continue reading »

Spelt Pappardelle with Leeks and Mushrooms

As you may know by now, I have a thing for pasta. But after two weeks of pasta-free cleansing, I couldn’t decide what kind I wanted first. And then I started to feel like maybe I shouldn’t be too decadent (with a loaded mac and cheese, for instance), since I just spent two weeks without … Continue reading »
