Tangerine Blueberry Waffle

Tangerine Blueberry Waffles

Tim Nekritz created #pancaketweetup, “a monthly virtual gathering involving some kind of breakfast (some of us just happen to prefer pancakes) and sharing it via social media (most use Twitter, though others Facebook or blog or Flicker or YouTube). Food, fun and fellowship … the best things in life!” I felt like getting a little […]

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal

It’s a New Year and everyone, including (especially?) me,  feels compelled to eat a little better. So it’s especially nice to do so when it doesn’t *taste* healthy. This recipe is adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie’s Five-Minute Chocolate Oatmeal. You won’t believe how rich and decadent oatmeal (of all things!) tastes — it’s like warm […]

Cinnamon Walnut Banana Bread

I know June isn’t synonymous with banana bread but, as I reached to grab some sherbet from the freezer last night, several bananas-on-ice stared back at me, asking, “When are you going to use us up?” Well, fine: ask and ye shall receive. I’ve baked this recipe before, with fantastic results, but I wanted to […]

Are you there blog? It's me, Laura. I have Raspberry Scones.

Are you there blog? It’s me, Laura. I have Raspberry Scones.

You know how some food bloggers parlay their work into cookbooks? Or become food writers or food photographers. Or pursue a full-time career in the culinary arts. Not me. This little blog, which I have woefully neglected lately, has not gotten me a food-related job. But it has helped me get a web-related job. Three […]

Black Raspberry Muffins

Guess what? This is post #501. What a long, strange trip it’s been… “If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one food,” said Sadie, “it would be these muffins.” You will have to make them yourself to see if you agree. Black Raspberry Muffins (adapted from Cook’s Illustrated, via The […]

Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

Thomas has nothing on me. And certainly nothing on Nicole, who developed this recipe. In the convenience of your own kitchen, you can whip up cinnamon-raisin English muffins — from scratch — in about an hour. (And most of that is sitting around, waiting for the yeast to do its thing.) Your kitchen can be […]

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes with Orange Maple Butter

Sometimes when flipping through a magazine, I’ll see a recipe and think, “I have to make that.” And sometimes, it actually happens. I spotted this recipe for Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes in last month’s Martha Stewart Living and the next morning — a Sunday (is there a more perfect day for pancakes?) — I was up, […]

Pan de Sal

A couple of weeks ago, I got an email from Dorothy, a blog reader, asking me to test out a recipe for Pan de Sal. Pan de Sal is a traditional Filipino roll, usually eaten for breakfast and, despite its name, is on the sweet side. I’ve never made these before, so I wasn’t quite […]

Daring Bakers & The Danish Braid

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: what I love most about the Daring Bakers is that each month’s challenge pushes me beyond my comfort zone and forces me to question my notions of baking and what I can do. Preconceived notions about this challenge?1) Making a laminated dough is difficult.2) I don’t […]

Real Honest Jewish Purist’s bagels

A caraway and sea salt bagel with a wild garlic cream cheese schmear. There are three types of food I’m very particular (if not snobby) about:1) Pizza (NY style Neapolitan)2) Lasagna (mine)3) Bagels I’m not sure many people have had genuine bagels. (Mmm… genuine bagels.) They’re not perfectly round, their consistency is not like other […]
