I made these for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie and had them along with a big bowl of gumbo!
My first Daring Baker's challenge was to make this panna cotta and florentine cookies. My red velvet panna cotta didn't turn out great, but the cookies were amazing!
These no-bake crunchies are so easy and so freaking good. I thought butterscotch needed a cool new name, so I decided upon b-scotch. :)
I created a recipe for a single, normal-sized peanut butter cookie. After the success of my first one, chocolate chip, I decided to try another variety, and it worked!
I made this for Tuesdays with Dorie. I left out the bourbon because I don't like bourbon, and when I asked my husband to pick some up at the store, he brought home Jim Beam. No thanks!
I created a teeny tiny recipe to bake a single, normal-sized chocolate chip cookie from scratch. Sometimes you just want ONE cookie, not a whole batch!
I taught myself how to supreme citrus during a recent snow day, and I thought it would be a helpful blog post! Plus, it gets me to eat more healthy stuff!
I made these black and whites for an online bake sale next week to support Team in Training (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society)! I hope someone bids on them!
These are a variation on Dorie Greenspan's Classic Brownies with extra, extra dark chocolate. Delicious!
I created this recipe in an attempt to make healthy granola bars for my husband. Although delicious, they are definitely a dessert. :)
These are actually the fluff-filled chocolate madeleines from TWD, but I didn't have a madeleine pan so I used a muffin tin. I sort of accidentally made Ding Dongs!
I made these for Tuesdays with Dorie this week and had them at midnight on New Year's Eve. They were perfect!
I have several baking pans (mini muffin pan, rectangle cake pan, etc) from Williams-Sonoma made of aluminized steel, and I'm having an issue with all of them. When I grab one out of the cupboard, I get black stuff all over my hands. I've tried to clean it, but it just keeps coming off!
It has also happened to the top part of the whisk attachment to my Kitchenaid mixer and another small baking sheet. I'm not sure what those are made of.
Any ideas? Is it my dishwasher? My detergent? They all say "dishwasher safe" so I'm lost. Thanks!!
Over Thanksgiving my 85-year-old grandmother told me about her favorite childhood recipe -- something her mom had made for her. She doesn't have the recipe and can't figure out how it was made. It's something like a date-pudding-meringue pie/cake. She's from rural southern Illinois, if that helps. Here's a bit more info:
It starts with a cookie or graham cracker crust, and then there is a layer of pudding with dates mixed in. Then a layer of pecans, and then a meringue (in the middle of the pie). And then another layer of pudding/dates/pecans and yet another meringue.
Any ideas?? I would absolutely LOVE to surprise her with it for Christmas!
My friends and I just decided to have a cooking/baking party on Halloween, and we want to dress in costume. I thought it would be great to dress up in some food-related way, but I'm stumped!
What's your favorite foodie costume? Or do you have any suggestions??
I know that most of us Serious Eaters love eating out at great restaurants, especially those hidden neighborhood gems. But here's my question: Is there a chain restaurant out there that gives you the same warm and fuzzy feelings? Applebees? Buffalo Wild Wings?
For me, it has be Chili's. Give me a Quesadilla Explosion Salad, and I'm a happy lady.
This Saturday night, my husband and I are escaping the city to Greenwich, CT for our one-year anniversary. We have a dinner reservation booked, but I just read reviews of it that are terrible! I won't name names. Any other suggestions for a special, romantic restaurant in Greenwich, near the harbor?
I made this for TWD. I love bringing desserts to Aunt Wendy's house because unlike my tiny apartment, her house has great natural light for photos!
In two weeks I'm traveling to St. Petersburg, FL, to watch my husband swim/bike/run in the St. Anthony's triathlon. I've never been, and I was wondering if you guys could recommend some restaurants in the area. We're staying at the Vinoy on 5th avenue if that helps. Any good Italian suggestions since they will be carbo-loading all weekend? I'm open to anything though!
Thanks in advance!
I'm having a Easter/Passover brunch on Sunday, and one of the guests has Celiac. I want to make a cheesecake, which is almost gluten-free except the crust. I can't seem to find any good, g-free cheesecake crust recipes. Anyone have one you'd like to share? Thanks!
I made these for Tuesdays With Dorie. They were going to be X-mas Sables, but I didn't have red/green sugar... so my blue sugar worked just fine. Happy Hanukkah!
Hi Everyone! My scotch-loving husband is turning 30 soon, and I would love to get him a "scotch tasting" for his birthday. Something where he can try several different types of scotch and get explanations about each one. Are there any places in NYC that do this type of thing? If not, are there any great bars with extensive scotch lists that I could maybe call and arrange something?
I made these cupcakes for my sister's bachelorette party. They matched the watermelon martinis perfectly.
Hi everyone! I will be in San Diego for the first time this Saturday for only one night. Where should I eat?! I would love a place with a good view (maybe outdoor seating) that will leave me with a great impression of SD! I'm staying at the Hotel Solomar near the gaslight district if that helps. Thanks in advance!
I made these for Tuesdays With Dorie, and they were totally delicious! I added chocolate chips to the banana batter.
These are a variation on Dorie Greenspan's Classic Brownies with extra, extra dark chocolate. Delicious!...
