Limoncello Cookies

My loves, I miss you! I think about you and writing all the time, but it’s all been a bit full on lately, hasn’t it? I haven’t been cooking, like at all. Minor lie, Monday I decided to braise a pork roast and ended up throwing the entire thing straight into the garbage, it was…

Alison Roman’s Tiny, Salty, Chocolatey Cookies

Not usually a chocolate gal, but I had a hankering for it this weekend and decided to give this ‘tiny’ cookie recipe from Alison Roman a go… There’s no flour in them, so they’re basically a health food. While very easy to make, something odd happened to my batch. I tried to slide into Alison’s…

Coconut Flour Banana Bread

When you’re slowly cleaning out your pantry to get ready to move a casual 5,000 miles across the globe, and find that you have an abundance of weird ingredients that won’t make the cut- you’d better use them now.

Carrot Cake Bars

Every year for my very lovely friend’s birthday on March 12, I bake a carrot cake. Last year, as with tradition, I did so and got (jokingly) yelled at for baking an entire cake for one person. While I implored him to just freeze part of it, he opted to have a rather festive birthday…

Peanut Butter Cookies

A recipe so nice, I’ve made it twice (this week). (Don’t worry, mostly to distribute to friends and colleagues). The basis of this is Ina’s recipe, but it has been modified a bit for ultimate enjoyment and accolades from your friends and family. The need to try this came from the realization that I had…

Super Model Project: Banana Bread

A week or so ago I bought 6 bananas because Chrissy Teigan told me to. When I occasionally buy bananas to eat, they seem to go brown immediately. When I needed them for a pre-new year’s baking challenge, they would NOT brown. For 10 days! So, I wasn’t intending to start off 2019 with a…

Pecan Sandies

Merry Christmas! Hope that everyone had the loveliest of holiday. This month has been absolutely mad – in the best way- but I am wiped! I actually just hit the grocery today for the first time in the month of December, having been out-of-town and following it up with lots of holiday festivities. I didn’t…
