Archive for ‘Breakfast’

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 […]

Matzo Brei

My weekend was filled with long walks, frigid wind, taking my trike out for the inaugural ride of 2015(!), eating far too many Cadbury mini eggs, and matzo brei. A typical Easter/Passover weekend. My mom converted to Judaism when she married my dad, so growing up, we had a fairly normal, suburban, Jewish home, filled […]

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

National Doughnut Day may have passed, but that doesn’t (and shouldn’t!) mean you have to stop eating doughnuts. If you’ve never made doughnuts– it’s time– you’re in for a treat! 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 […]

Cheese Blintzes

Let me tell you a little story. It’s about being dim (my being dim, of course). I went to the cheese shop that I always go to. They have a really wonderful house-made ricotta there; it’s light, with just the right amount of salt, and tastes like cream. I was going to bake a ricotta […]

Little Apricot Cakes

Hands down, apricots are my favorite stone fruit. Back in California, they were the first fruit to hit the market in late spring. I would buy them by the pound, keeping a bowl on the kitchen counter where I would eat them out of hand whenever I felt like snack. They were local, sweet, and […]

Apple-Rhubarb Muffins

As I was putting together the pictures for this post, I was amazed to see just how many times rhubarb has made an appearance on this site. You might even think that is the only fruit/vegetable I cook with. There was this galette. And let’s not forget this one from years ago. (Apparently I loved […]

Granola with Cornflakes

I go through cooking phases. Hard. So, I’ve made granola before. I thought that the granola I was making was the bee’s knees. And it’s great classic granola– oaty, fruity, wholesome. But I was wrong. I think that I may found my new, absolute favorite (mind you, I say this now) granola. It has cornflakes […]
