This ticketed event (don’t worry, there are still some left!) will be a lecture/demo all about everyone’s favorite fall dessert– PIE! The event supports Gateway’s Culinary Arts program. Last year, I […]

Peach Galette

How is everyone’s summer going thus far? I’m in California visiting family, but forgot to post this TV clip from Connecticut Style that I did before we left. I made a Peach Galette, aka, the lazyman’s pie. Galettes are a wonderful alternative when baking an entire, double-crusted pie is too much of an undertaking in […]

QVC and Me

A little while ago I was on QVC. And it was wild. A few months ago, my publisher informed me that QVC host David Venable was interested in my cookbook. Would I be interested in going on-air to sell it with him? Um. Blink. Blink. My answer was, of course, yes. So, a few Wednesdays […]

Chocolate Raisin Pie

Last Friday I went on local television to bake a pie– a Chocolate Raisin Pie. I think chocolate and raisins are sort of the perfect combination. I always eat the raisins with the chocolate chips out of the “bad-for-you” trail mix. (Which is really the only type of trail mix I like.) I love a […]

I never really liked rice pudding, that was until I discovered that it wasn’t really the rice, or the pudding part that didn’t float my boat. It was the raisins. Enter this updated rice pudding with dried apricots. It hits the spot– delicately sweet, perfectly wobbly, and a tanginess from the apricots. I love this […]

How-To Bake a Pumpkin Pie

I mentioned last week that I would be doing a local television spot. Well, I did it; and it’s up on-line. The host and I chatted about pumpkin pie (complete with roasting your own pumpkin). Then I demonstrated making the filling, which couldn’t be any simpler. If you’re looking for a holiday dessert recipe, this […]

Dessert Course

Last week I was in Philadelphia. Not for vacation, not to see the Liberty Bell, nor Reading Terminal Market. I was in class. QVC class. Yep, in a few months I’m going to be on that famed shopping network promoting my cookbook. (Aaaahhh! Live television gives me the vapors!) But before I can do this, […]
