Chocolate Zucchini Cake

This is the type of cake that calls to you. You may find yourself cutting thin slices off whenever you pass through the kitchen. It isn’t too sweet, and it is incredibly moist. I read a lot of recipes, and their are some cake recipes that claim to actually get better with age. I had […]

This summer I have had malted milk on the brain! For me, this meant malted milk balls, and malted milk powder, getting swirled together with vanilla ice cream to make a malty and delicious mess. The mess was then made into an ice cream cake. The beauty of this dessert, is you get to sit […]

Rhubarb Ricotta Cake

I like cheesecake; but I don’t love cheesecake. So why am I presenting you with a cheesecake recipe, and imploring you all to make it? Because I guess it would be more fitting if this cake were called a cheese cake– a cake with some cheese in it. This recipe is one that displays the […]

Plum Busy-Day Cake

I love dessert– a tall layer cake, a slice of pie (duh, I wrote a book about that one!). I’ll even take a cookie. But what I really love, are trustworthy, un-embellished, not-too-sweet, single layered, coarse crumbed cakes. My friend calls these cakes abstemious– but he’s a wordsmith. I have a few of the recipes […]

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 […]

Lovely Lemon

I used to dislike lemon desserts; they just seemed like a giant waste of time. If I wanted something sweet, I would go for chocolate, smooth and creamy, every time. But as I got older, my palate as well as my appetite grew. I learned to appreciate the delicacy, the brightness, that puckery twang of […]

Base Cakes Rock!

I have been on a mission. It is one that has taken me as far as the depths of my kitchen and the to the wiles of the public library. Yes, I have searched long and hard, and waged many a calorie-ridden day happily in hungrily in pursuit of the perfect cake recipe. And by […]

Simple but not Skimpy

Simple can mean many things: stripped down, easy, commonplace, or everyday. Today it has become a bit of a catch phrase when referring to those typical 30-minute meal options. But simple can also mean pure, unadulterated…delicious. This is the type of simple I mean when talking about Vanilla Bean Cream Cake. Pure unadulterated vanilla, a […]

Have a Button on Your Birthday

Almost all of my hand-selected Brit care package is gone. The Kit-Kats have all been munched upon (including the cloyingly sweet, strawberry-white chocolate ones by my husband), the prawn cocktail crisps have all been marveled at, and the Cadbury Crunchie bars eaten quickly, the honeycomb centers crackling away. But a few choice morsels still remained, […]

Weights and Measures

I don’t know why Nigel Slater is not a bigger deal in the United States. Like his British cohorts, he too brings simple, fuss-free food to the forefront, and does so in an engaging, straight-forward fashion. I love this man. That is why, when book shopping in Oxford, I was thrilled to find his latest […]
