To say that this was a project would be something of an understatement. And, I’ll be honest with you, I’m not sure I would do it again… at least not like the way I did this time. See, my kids finished at school this past June and they are moving on to a new school […]

I’m not sure if people who have never lived in New York City really get coffee cake. Maybe I’m biased, and therefore totally wrong. But there is something really special about the coffee cakes I’ve seen there, especially in the ratio of crumb to cake. Maybe Texas knows how to do this too and I […]
This ice-cream was entirely momentum based. What I mean by that is that I was on a roll making ice-cream (5 batches in an afternoon!) and when the strawberry ice-cream came out so fantastically I started searching for more fruit that was hanging out in the fridge to use in a similar fashion. When I […]
I realized that in the midst of “Ice-cream Week!” I needed to tip the hat to those who can’t eat dairy. I mean the sorbet does that, sort of, but that’s not actually ice-cream, it’s sorbet, duh. So I decided to demonstrate just how easy it is to swap out the cow milk and make […]

This strawberry ice-cream has less than a handful of ingredients: fresh strawberries, milk, and sugar. Blend it in a blender and churn it in the ice-cream maker. It becomes, what is, in all honesty, probably the best ice-cream I’ve ever had. Ever. Anywhere. I probably shouldn’t have led the week with a recipe with that […]
Today is Adam’s birthday. Each year I try to find something special that I can make for him for dessert. He’s pretty easy when it comes to what meal he wants: Steak frittes (AKA steak and a side of fries). But dessert is where I get to play.
My kids are crazy. If the 20 minute long tantrum that began for no fathomable reason and ends for no fathomable reason, with a rapid shift from crying to hysterical giggling isn’t proof enough, then the following story should prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
One of the most ubiquitous Easter candies out there may be the marshmallow chick. (The chocolate egg is a good contender here but for the sake of this post I’m going with a thoroughly unscientific unsupported claim that it’s the marshmallow chick.) Yum… but not really if you stop to think about the insane number […]
