Cinnamon buns (a bun in the oven)

October 19th, 2012

As the title hints at, I have big news to share… Aaron and I are having a baby! Woohoo! It’s still kind of hard to believe, but after four months of no booze, delicious cheeses, and oysters… well it’s really setting in. All jokes aside (kind of), we are beyond thrilled. My first few months left me without an appetite, feeling nauseous and exhausted, but I’ve broken through that fog and am so jazzed to be able to look at and make food again! Especially sweets. In honor of our most amazing little one, I flipped through my treasured recipe book to find a favorite recipe —one that takes time and patience but is totally worth the wait. Yup, that seems totally appropriate for this news. Hellooo, cinnamon buns!

savory cheddar biscotti

September 29th, 2010

I’ve always thought of biscotti as a sweet snack, something to have alongside a mug of coffee. Then last week I was looking at the Dining Section of the New York Times when I saw savory biscotti. Then I read what savory ingredients were involved… cheddar cheese and cayenne pepper? Genius! I love it when I’m surprised by a recipe, especially when it’s so simple. Of course I got down to business and whipped up a batch this weekend.

sticky lemon rolls with lemon cream cheese glaze

March 26th, 2010

Holy moly! It’s been a while since a) I’ve posted anything here b) I’ve actually cooked/baked/did anything in the kitchen. Boo! Hopefully all that nonsense that kept me away will stay away (i’m talking to you flu!). Anywho, I saw a post on the Kitchn last week and nearly started drooling right then and there. Now I’m a fan of cinnamon rolls like no other, but when I saw this recipe for sticky lemon rolls it just felt like a giant sign that reads “Come on Spring!!”. Quite frankly, I found it hard to wait for either, unfortunately, I can’t control the weather, but you can bet I can make some mean sticky lemon rolls.

apple pecan quick bread

February 17th, 2010

I miss my weekly inspiration at the farmers market… the bright colors, happy farmers and new surprises each week. Now, I have to admit, I’m pretty lucky because our local farmers market is actually still open, but more often than not I find it hard to bundle myself up and face the walk. A few weeks ago Maude (my dog) and I got up the nerve to face the cold and made the trek. We didn’t come home with any colorful fruit or vegetables, mostly cheese and meat with a few root vegetables sprinkled in, but our one treasure of the day was the most delicious applesauce I’ve ever tasted. It’s made with one of my favorite apples, Fuji and pink in hue. I ate my fair share, but had enough leftover that I decided to make an apple quick bread with it and boy, did it cure my winter blues.

whole wheat bread

October 13th, 2009

This summer I was super excited to see that a vendor who sells local flour arrived at my farmer’s market. Unfortunately it’s a bit pricey (and deservingly, I’m sure) for me, so I’ve been saving it for special uses only. Well that time came this weekend when I flipped through the Food Issue of the Times Magazine to find this super simple recipe for whole wheat bread.

blackberry ricotta cornbread

September 9th, 2009

Whew, I am buying corn like it’s going out of style. I just can’t get enough… I sure hope you feel the same. If not, maybe this recipe will tempt you. I’d like to call this blackberry ricotta cornbread my ode to the end of summer. I used some of the last berries of the season along with the first of the fall veggies to create one heck of tasty bread that works as breakfast, dessert or a midday snack.

Corn has been making more appearances on the table lately and I’m loving it. This recipe is great if you happened to make too much corn and have leftovers. These little corn bites are full of flavor and just the right size to pop in your mouth without a thought.
