Dorie Greenspan's Double Chocolate Cupcakes

This is a more grown-up version of the modern cupcake. It's not too sweet, with super-moist chocolate cake that contains semisweet chocolate and cocoa powder, and a luscious, ganache frosting on top. The recipe is from Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours, a book that inspired me to learn to bake and eventually "go pro". I love topping them with spun sugar for birthday celebrations.

Cook the Book: Basic French Lentils

I had been trying my hand at French lentils with varying degrees of success for the past few years when I finally found the prefect recipe for Basic French Lentils in Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table. While I had always incorporated a combination of carrots, celery, and onions I was missing a few key ingredients—one lone clove, a bay leaf, a bit of cognac, and most importantly, plenty of stock to cook the lentils in.

Cook the Book: Endives, Apples, and Grapes

According to Dorie Greenspan author of Around My French Table if you have never been a fan of endives it's because you have never tried this recipe for pan roasted Endives, Apples, and Grapes. Adapted from Alain Passard, a French chef with an undeniable passion for vegetables, this combination of sweet, bitter, and herbaceous notes lend a complexity of flavor that belies the simplicity of the cooking process.

Cook the Book: Provençal Olive Fougasse

Greenspan's fougasse is studded with oil-cured black olives, flecks of rosemary, and bits of tart and aromatic lemon zest. It's included into a chapter entitled "Nibbles and Hors d'œuvres" since the bread is meant to be served whole to make the most out of it's lovely shape, perhaps accompanied by some slices of saucisson a l'ail, a garlicky sausage, and a glass of rosé de Provence.

Although it might be something of a cliché, falling in love with France is not very hard. That was precisely what happened to Dorie Greenspan as a newlywed on her first visit to Paris.

Dorie Greenspan's 15-Minute Magic Flourless Torte

This recipe for 15-Minute Magic, a non-kosher/non-Parve chocolate-amaretti torte, is hardly traditional Passover fare, but it's delicious and doesn't use flour. My favorite amaretti to use for this cake are amaretti di Saronno from D. Lazzaroni & Co. You'll find them in their beautiful red tins at specialty shops, Italian markets and some supermarkets. That said, I've used just about every other brand available and have never eaten a torte I didn't love. More
