Homemade Herbed Breadsticks

I have made breadsticks before, and though they were tasty and easy to make, I have wanted to pin down a good recipe for yeasted breadsticks. I wanted to get that nice texture that you just can’t seem to get with a quickbread (non-yeast) type of recipe. Many recipes for homemade breadsticks are really just elongated dinner rolls, tending towards softness. Truthfully, I like those ... Read More »

Cherry Blueberry Clafoutis

I had it in mind to make a blueberry clafoutis, but much to my chagrin, I found that the berries at the bottom of my small basket were beyond saving, much like the fresh raspberries I have had such bad luck with this year. I ended up adding some frozen black cherries to dish and the combination of fruits was delicious. The recipe is only ... Read More »

Zesty Raspberry Loaf

This is a very beautiful loaf. It has a golden top, an almost white interior and, of course, bright raspberries scattered throughout, making the contrast between white and red all the more obvious. The idea to do a lime-raspberry flavor combination had been floating around in my head for some time, but I kept forgetting to buy raspberries. Or when I would get them, they ... Read More »

Blogging by mail returns!

For all of you who have e-mailed me over the past few months, asking when we were going to have another round of Blogging By Mail, your time has come. The global, non-digital event has returned! When I started Blogging By Mail, back before any of the other postal-blogging events did, I might add, I didn’t know it would be as popular as it was. ... Read More »

Red Pepper, Onion and Cheese Omelet

The trick to making an omelet is to practice. The more often you make them, the easier they’ll be to do. An omelet is sort of like a large egg pancake, if you’ve never had one before. The egg mixture has eggs (of course), a little milk or water and seasonings, then it is poured into a pan and cooked until just firm, before being ... Read More »

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandwiches

 I had a good time with the two-tone milkshakes that I made last week and decided to use the same effect to make these ice cream sandwiches. And by this, I mean that I made them with half vanilla filling and half chocolate. Ice cream sandwiches are really simple to make because you don’t have to actually make anything in order to make them. You ... Read More »

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are, hands down, the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and probably the best I have ever eaten. Granted, I actually make things that I like more than these (sometimes you feel like a muffin, not a cookie), but I have never seen someone not reach for a second cookies straight away. They are fantastic – slightly crispy on the edges ... Read More »

Lemon and Candied Ginger Muffins

While we were at BlogHer, Elise told me a story of some semi-disastrous lemon muffins that she had recently tried to make from a recipe given to her by a friend. What precisely caused the muffins to fail was a mystery, since the friend who supplied the recipe later had the same difficulty, despite the fact that she had succeeded with the muffins in the ...
