Strawberry Mascarpone Shake

Serious Eats Autumn Giles Post a comment

Simple is better when it comes to perfectly ripe strawberries and the same definitely holds true for this shake. Rich mascarpone and vanilla bean help the berries shine. More

Pie of the Week: Carrot Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Pie

Sweets Sarah Baird 3 comments

Vegetables and sugar have been flirting for years with one another through dishes like the Thanksgiving stand-by sweet potato pie and autumnal pumpkin bread, but these relationships have been fleeting and seasonal at best. This week's carrot mascarpone pie is proof that veggies are ready to come into their own as a part of the dessert course by reimagining the springtime favorite carrot cake as a vehicle for creamy, complex flavors.

Italian Easy: Baked Pasta With Sausage, Mushrooms, and Mascarpone

Deborah Mele 9 comments

For me, baked pasta is true Italian comfort food. Whether it is a dish of lasagna combining layers of tender sheets of homemade egg noodles and rich meaty sauce, or a simple, easy-to-assemble casserole dish like this one, there isn't anything more pleasing than a bowl of rustic baked pasta. This recipes combines pasta with sausage, mushrooms, and creamy mascarpone cheese with a crunchy breadcrumb topping. More

Sandwiched: Mascarpone, Strawberry, and Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Sandwiched Marvin Gapultos 4 comments

Although it's only March, there's been some great-looking strawberries at my local farmer's market in Los Angeles lately. So after purchasing my first batch of early-season berries, I combined them with some cream and basil in a rather unconventional way—in a grilled cheese sandwich. The cheese in this grilled cheese sandwich is mascarpone—the mild, yet faintly sweet Italian cream cheese—which I spread onto a couple slices of honey wheat bread, followed by a drizzling of honey, some sliced strawberries, and some thin ribbons of fresh basil.

Beet Blinis with Salmon Marinated in Star Anise Syrup from 'Home Made Winter'

Kate Williams 2 comments

Blinis make for an excellent nibble before dinner; the yeasty mini pancakes can cradle just about anything from cheeses to jams to luxe caviar. A sliver of smoked salmon and a dollop of mascarpone cheese may be at the very top of that list. Add roasted beets, star anise, and pomegranate seeds as Yvette van Boven does in Home Made Winter, and you'll have a gem of a dish on your table. More

Scooped: Lemon Mascarpone Gelato

Sweets Max Falkowitz 2 comments

While you can easily plop mascarpone on cake or pie and call it a day, it's not much harder to mix it with some milk and sugar to make gelato. From start to finish, you can have freshly made ice cream in 40 minutes with this recipe, which is simple enough for any weeknight but fancy enough to embellish holiday desserts. More

Bake the Book: Orange Marmalade-Mascarpone Pop-Tarts

Sweets Caroline Russock 2 comments

When it comes to breakfast pastries, Pop-Tarts fall firmly into the low brow, guilty pleasure category. But their bad image can easily be made over if you forgo the store bought and opt for homemade. These Orange Marmalade-Mascarpone Pop Tarts from Handheld Pies have nothing on the s'mores filled versions. Encased in a buttery pâte brisée crust and filled with creamy mascarpone and bitter-sweet marmalade, these Pop-Tarts are more on par with croissants than rainbow sprinkle topped breakfast pastries.

Let Them Eat: Fresh Persimmon Cake

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

In preparing this cake, I looked for a number of different ways to handle the persimmon topping. I tried sautéing in butter and brown sugar, roasting under a sheath of amber honey, and broiling and torching after sprinkling the halved fruit with sugar. Ultimately I thought the fresh, ripe flesh suffered under the heat, shriveling and losing the delicacy of its taste. A clean and straightforward arrangement with a drizzle of burnt caramel turned out to be the best way to showcase this seasonal fruit. More

Cook the Book: Penne with Mascarpone

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

With a basic understanding of perfectly al dente pasta and the right sauce consistency, this dead simple and insanely delicious penne dressed with creamy mild mascarpone, butter, and a sprinkling of Parmesan and walnuts is the kind of ten-minute meal that all of us should keep in our back pockets. It's rich, creamy, and comforting (in the same way mac and cheese is) yet elegant and exotic enough to serve to a discerning group of dinner guests. More

Purslane Agnolotti

Serious Eats Katie Quinn Post a comment

Purslane has crept into seasonal restaurant menus this summer, but you might not actually know what it is. Pur-who? I had never heard of the sweet, mildly sour succulent, but once I caught wind of the purslane trend, I started noticing it at farmers' markets. It turns out this exotic weed has a bit of a cult following. More
