2015 Reader Survey Results

I couldn’t have been more pleased with the response to my first annual reader survey. A total of 418 of you responded to my (lengthy) questionnaire, telling me your hopes and dreams (and, of...

March Kitchen Challenge Results: Homemade Yogurt

Homemade yogurt. What can I say? I was unimpressed. While it was (once I worked out a few kinks in the process) surprisingly easy to make, I didn’t find the flavor of my homemade...

Muscovado Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve had a sweet revelation. A dose of sugary inspiration. A life changing discovery. And it’s called dark muscovado sugar. If you thought sugar was entirely flavorless, think again. I feel like I’ve discovered...

Tart Cherry & Meyer Lemon Marmalade

When tart meets tart, the result is extra sweet. It’s no secret I adore Meyer lemons, and tend to go on somewhat of a Meyer-binge during the late-winter months when they are in season....

Bakehouse Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

If Dexter was a food blogger… I promise, I’m not a psychopath… though I kind of felt like one when I was cutting these bars apart, seething with frustration as my initial rectangular bar...

TARDIS Birthday Cake

I only bake one cake a year… and that’s for Lindsay’s birthday. She knows that I don’t have much experience with baking in general, and even less skill when it comes to decorating cakes,...

Soy Sauce Noodles

It’s hard to believe that simple noodles could be so satisfying. But these, well, these noodles are beyond belief. Technically, these are pretty close to what you’d call chow mein. Not to be confused...

Peanut Butter Millionaire Shortbread Bars

The only thing in this world better than chocolate and peanut butter… is chocolate, caramel and peanut butter. And that’s exactly what you get when you take a classic millionaire shortbread recipe and add...
