Best Bake of Quarantine: Brown Butter and Toffee Cookies

Follow chef Rick Andrew Martinez and you have a glimpse of his quarantine adventures in Mexico that seem to be all cooking and sunsets. My kind of guy. He’s one of those fun chefs that Instagram matrixes the home chef’s creations following his recipes and day after day, story after story, were these Brown Butter…

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…

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last Friday, I dropped off four Peanut Butter Cookies to a colleague as a simple, “happy-Friday-eat-these-with-your-coffee” treat.

Instead of taking a page from my book of wine drinking, while strewing the kitchen with flour, sugar, and other messy delights, I thought it was time you’d heard from a pro. So, without further ado,…

Always An Time

This past weekend was randomly a long weekend for both the chap and me, so naturally we had to plan a getaway. The dog was at doggy band camp..err boot camp for well-mannered beasts, three days alone…it was fate…until weather interfered with every destination on the Eastern Seaboard. Literally. All of them. Charleston, Asheville, Pinehurst,…
