Watermelon and Feta Salad

Watermelon is 80% water and, as such, is one of the most refreshing foods that you can have. It satisfies your sweet tooth, your thirst and your hunger, all in one go. I used to love to eat it plain, scooping it out of the rind with a spoon when I was down at the beach as a kid. One day, years later, a coworker ... Read More »

White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Nuts can make a fantastic addition to cookies, cakes and other baked goods. Whether you use pecans, walnuts or almonds, they all add great flavors and a nice crunch to any recipe. Another nut that I am fond of is the macadamia nut, which has an unusually smooth and buttery flavor. I particularly enjoy it when it is paired with white chocolate, as the chocolate ... Read More »

Balsamic Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue sauce is a great condiment to have around, especially during summer when the grill gets a lot of use. You can put it on just about anything and, somehow, it manages to always taste great. My current favorite way to have it is to add it to a salad instead of dressing. While I love barbecue sauce, sometimes they tend to be a little ... Read More »

Oreo Cupcakes

I was tempted just to make plain vanilla cupcakes this week but inspiration struck me when I was watching the World Cup: black and white cupcakes, inspired by the colors of a soccer ball. This was quickly followed by a thought of cookies and cream and the oreo cupcake came to life. It was a simple thing to mix crushed up cookies into a fairly ... Read More »

Perfect Pizza Crust

Normally, I don’t cross-post things to both this site and Slashfood, but this pizza crust warrants an exception. This crust is a recipe from the most recent issue of Cook’s Illustrated. It caught my eye because there was a tagline that said “great pizza without an 800-degree oven.” I guess it doesn’t take much to convince me. I’ve made good pizzas at home, but never ... Read More »

Rocky Road Brownies and Baker’s Edge

Ever since I saw the s’mores brownies in an issue of Cook’s Country last year, I wanted to try them. Unfortunately, not only did I completely forget about them, but when I finally got around to trying the recipe, I didn’t have any graham crackers to make the crust with. Rather than make my own grahams, I decided to go a different route by making ... Read More »

Does My Blog Look Good in This? Gallery

As you all know, I am hosting this month’s Does my blog look good in this? event, where food (and drink) bloggers can submit their photos to be judged by a panel of experts. Half of the fun is checking out everyone else’s entries, and you can view them here. You can also leave comments about your favorite entries and track back to the original ... Read More »

Buttermilk Sorbet

The only reason that this is called “sorbet” and not “ice cream” is the fact that there is no cream in it. Don’t let the name fool you, though, because it is still as cold and satisfying as ice cream, while having the unique flavor profile of buttermilk. When I first saw the recipe in this month’s issue of Cooking Light, I knew that I ... Read More »
