Princess Cake Recipe

I have been on a long, self-imposed break from the blogging world, but I felt it was necessary to pop-up for a moment to post a recipe for Princess Cake. I made it over 5 years ago from a recipe on iVillage.com (originally from the book Birthday Cakes: Recipes and Memories from Celebrated Bakers), but [...]

Too much refined sugar?

As a bakery owner, it was rare to actually leave the store to have a proper meal. I often found myself eating muffins for lunch, or scrounging the last of the oatmeal for a somewhat healthier option. Vegetables and protein weren’t available much, but my body was used to a carb and sugar-heavy diet, so [...]

Peace, Love and Matcha

Matcha, and more specifically, matcha cookies, have been traveling through cyberspace and uniting people around the world. All starting with a common recipe, and a goal to make something special for friends and family. I posted the recipe for our green tea (a.k.a. matcha) tea sweets last June, and since then I have been watching [...]

Pecan Pie for the Birthday Guy, Again

Andrew loves pecan pie, and I try to make it for him each year on his birthday. When I first started this blog in 2005, I wrote about a pecan pie that I made for his birthday that came out well, but wasn’t our favorite. I got the recipe from Bon App├ętit, and it was [...]

Chips & Chocolate

The secret ingredient to the recipe that won the Betty Crocker Baking Contest was…chips! Anna Ginsberg of Austin, Texas won the $5,000 grand prize for her Chocolate-Topped Peanut-Toffee Bars, a sweet and salty cookie bar made with a pouch of Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix and potato chips as a “secret” ingredient. It may [...]

Baked Hot Chocolate

I received the new Scharffen Berger book, The Essence of Chocolate, last month and have been looking forward to trying a chocolate recipe for Valentine’s Day. The book’s images, stories and selection of great chocolate recipes are quite impressive. It has everything from fondue to three-bean chili (with cocoa, of course), all contributed by well [...]

Tartine Chocolate Pudding

Two of my favorite things to do in the winter are: 1) Eat pudding and 2) Get out of New York and visit California. It’s even better when I can combine these two wonderful things, like I did last year at Tartine Bakery in San Francisco. This neighborhood bakery specializes in classic French desserts, but [...]

Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter

Beyond the classic apple pie, nothing says “America” like chocolate chips and peanut butter. The chocolate chip cookie was invented in the 1930s by a woman named Ruth Wakefield who ran the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts (Nestle later bought the rights to the recipe). Peanut butter, usually passed up by the rest of the [...]
