Tomato Bread Soup

In elementary school there was a girl who would eat tomatoes out-of-hand, like most people crunched apples. I would watch her, slightly in awe, slightly in horror, as she reached into her lunchbox and pulled out a whole tomato and take a bite. It was so outré! Come on, this wasn’t a traditional piece of […]

I have what I deem to be a problem. It is not over-eating, nor gambling. I don’t buy too many clothes for myself, or even collectibles for my home. I can’t stop buying cookbooks. My husband says that it’s perfectly fine– it’s all in the name of research. (Some would call him an enabler, I […]

Sourdough Popovers

Sourdough amazes me, and popovers do too. When they come crashing together it’s a delicious thing to behold. I am enthralled with sourdough bread–how basically a handful of ingredients: flour, water, and salt, can make a crisp, webby loaf of bread– it gets me every time. I feel like I am truly making something great […]

Vermont Graham Bread

Bitter cold mornings? Check. Changed your the sheets on your bed to flannel? Check. Leaves almost completely fallen off the trees and into messy piles of muck? Check. Preparing yourself for winter? Oven is being turned on more often? Check. And check. Me too. This recipe is for a quickbread from my book. It’s one […]

Best Ever Doughnuts

A few weeks ago I wrote a piece for Food52‘s Heirloom Recipes column. It’s for “Best Ever Doughnuts” a recipe that came with my grandma […]

Donut Muffins

Is it a donut or a muffin? It’s both. And I sort of didn’t believe that it could be. I have always been skeptical of those donut baking pans. If you want a donut, something crisply fried on the outside, tender and moist on the inside– just eat a donut. Although the donut shape they […]

United States of Breads!

My mom lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and I live in Connecticut, but we talk on the phone all the time. This is how our conversations have gone as of late: Mom: Hi, hon. Me: Hi. Mom: What did you do today? Me: Made bread. Or sometimes they go: Mom: Hi. Me: Let […]

Starting as One

Do you ever start one project, and by the the time you’ve finished it, it is almost unrecognizable from what it was meant to be? I do. It happens to me all the time– when I’m getting dressed for the day, running errands, and especially when I’m cooking. When I’m cooking  I like to call […]
