Saffron Turmeric Cake with Meyer Lemon Sorbet, Argan Oil Whipped Cream, Almond Brittle, and Thyme

Saffron Turmeric Cake with Meyer Lemon Sorbet, Argan Oil Whipped Cream, Almond Brittle, and Thyme

I’ve been meaning to post this for months! Since a few of you requested it, I may as well start with the backlog here. This was a really fun dish to throw together. The saffron turmeric cake was an adaptation of a chocolate cake recipe, where Dave started by replacing the cocoa powder with turmeric […]

Sour Cherry Coffee Cake

Sour Cherry Coffee Cake

I’m in Portland right now, but I made this sour cherry coffee cake not long before I left Brooklyn, with sour cherries we picked from my father’s tree. Bonnie helped us pick the first round of cherries off the tree, It was a 4-foot-all dwarf tree when my parents first bought it, but now it […]

Chocolate-Whiskey Pudding Cake

Chocolate-Whiskey Pudding Cake

This cake is light and luscious, like a barely cooked chocolate mousse. It’s best served with strawberries, which are coming in gorgeous from New Jersey to the Greenmarkets right about now. Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting Pille of nami-nami while she was visiting New York. She brought us some wonderful gifts, including […]

Kumquat Cake

Kumquat Cake

This cake is obscenely rich; it is more of a custard or pudding than a cake, almost. It is so moist that it may seem undercooked until you remember just how many eggs and pureed kumquats you poured into that wet batter to make it. It started out as a recipe for orange cake, but […]

Rakott Palacsinta (Hungarian Pancake Cake)

Rakott Palacsinta (Hungarian Pancake Cake)

First things first. I would really appreciate it if you would go vote for me in Culinate’s Death By Chocolate contest. Also, I heard today is crepe day, so we made a Hungarian crepe cake! My grandmother says that she used to make this with a different filling in each layer – jam, ground walnuts, […]

Rum-Drenched Cocoa-Nana Bread

Rum-Drenched Cocoa-Nana Bread

This is a combination of two recipes from Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, one of the smartest and friendliest cookbook authors and food bloggers I know. It remained moist and delicious almost a week later, and got rave reviews from my mother and Dave’s coworkers. (We bake a lot, so we […]

Chocolate Birthday Cake

Chocolate Birthday Cake

Having a food blog makes you instantly popular. People email you recipes. Your mother may cut out recipes from magazines and ask you to make them for her, in fact. Even kids like you better once you start to blog about food. My friend’s young nephew was eager to tell me of a recipe he […]

Amaretto Brownies with Saffron Creme Anglaise and Bee Pollen Spice Mix

Amaretto Brownies with Saffron Creme Anglaise and Bee Pollen Spice Mix

Dave wanted something chocolate and something creamy. I wanted to play more with Aki and Alex’s bee pollen spice mix, and thought saffron would pull everything together. I hesitate to call these brownies. They were based on a brownie recipe, but adjusted and baked in muffin tins so that they were practically transformed into rich […]

Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread

When is a bread not a bread? When it’s a monkey! Life has been pretty stressful for me lately, with some hard decisions still left for me to make, so my partner Dave and I decided to spend a recent evening just monkeying around. We dipped balls of risen, yeasted dough into melted monkey butter […]

The Queen of Sheba

The Queen of Sheba

The Queen of Sheba was Solomon’s only match, as rich and wise as he, or more. Legend has it that it was she who told him of the lost vessel of blessed light that cast peace on anyone who stood in its presence, which became the greatest of his treasures. William Butler Yeats imagined the […]

Cranberry Lemon Cornmeal Cake

Cranberry Lemon Cornmeal Cake

Yet again, let me tell you why I love living in NYC, and in Brooklyn in particular, and in Park Slope in particular. We found a stack of clean, beautiful cooking magazines out in front of someone’s brownstone a few blocks away from our apartment just a few days ago. We often find books this […]

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

Last time I saw him in concert, Arlo Guthrie told the story of how his grades dropped in 6th grade, leading his family to send him to see a shrink. His mother had to go with him. He put pegs into holes, looked at ink blots, took all the tests. The shrink sent Arlo out […]

Pink Peppercorn Encrusted Flourless Chocolate Cake

Pink Peppercorn Encrusted Flourless Chocolate Cake

Dave and I spent an entire weekend trying to make this cake, and we utterly failed at life at least twice during that time. On our first attempt, we undercooked it, and then we tried to remove it from the pan before giving it a chance to fully cool. Unsurprisingly, it oozed all over the […]
