Chocolate of the Day: Death By Chocolate

This was a dessert my mother made for only the fanciest of pot lucks. (Such a thing exists in the Midwest.) I used to think it was really complicated. No, it really is just full of things that will kill you. It’s also wonderfully versatile: make it gluten free by using gluten free brownies, sub […]

Medieval Snowe, a Year Round Treat

Snowe is a dessert recipe of sorts — it’s a sweet dish, though I could see eating it at breakfast, for a snack, etc. I think it will be especially nice in summertime. It’s a simple, light dessert — doesn’t require much prep time. Pictures and recipe after the jump.

8-Minute Cheesecake Recipe

My grandma wasn’t particularly known for being ambitious in the kitchen. She was more of a, “Let’s throw this together and make time for a nap,” kind of cook. This is a family favorite. The best part for summer? No baking!!!

Cookie Times

Winter is the perfect time of year for cookies. For starters, if you make too much cookie dough, you can freeze it just by throwing it outside (in a sealed container to prevent attracting raccoons and other rabies-laden but surprisingly adorable critters). For seconders, completely disregard that first point and just continue to use the […]

It’s Apple Pie Season!

Fall in upstate New York means apple picking, which, in turn, means having a giant sack of apples that I have to do something with. My mom made fantastic apple pie when I was a kid, so I decided to try my hand at her recipe, which is from an older edition of the Betty […]

I Know You Want To Try These Frosted Nutella Cookies

A couple of weeks ago, I dared to purchase a jar of Nutella. Hell, I even put it on the grocery list. It seems like my favorite addiction, Pinterest, keeps throwing the stuff in my face every time I venture over to someone’s Food board, and someone somewhere mentioned dipping Oreos into the stuff.

Cherry Crispy Crumble

If you were on a dessert island, what type of dessert island would you want to be on? I have thought about this a whole lot. I discard Candy Island pretty quickly but I waffle a lot between chocolate and fruit-pastries. On the one hand, living on an island of endless chocolate delights would be […]

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are amazing. Everyone on the Internet thinks they deserve one for being a decent human being. They’re relatively easy to make. They travel well. They taste great. Even as a grown-ass woman, I have to say that there are few things that beat a good cookie. Today, I would like to share the recipe […]

Book Review: “Making Piece: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Pie”

When I’m stressed out,  I bake. My repertoire consists of exactly two goods: banana muffins (slightly updated recipe from my mom’s circa-1970’s cookbook) and chocolate chip cookies (back of the Trader Joe’s chocolate chip bag, slightly updated from Nestle). I have my limits, sure. But it’s hard to dispute this form of coping. It’s cheaper […]

We Try It: Pavlova

The pavlova is a famous dessert down here in the South Pacific. It’s a giant meringue with a crunchy outside and soft marshmallow inner and was named after the legendary ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is truly delicious, but its real claim to fame is the dispute over the origin of the dessert – was it created […]
