My Triumphant Return, with a Book Giveaway!

My Triumphant Return, with a Book Giveaway!

Ah, so it turns out that I took an unplanned hiatus from blogging. Sorry about that. Dave and I just moved to a much nicer apartment, and we are finally wedding planning in earnest, so things have been pretty overwhelming around here. As part of my return to food blogging, I have presents for you! […]

I was completely overwhelmed by all the gorgeous entries to DMBLGIT this month. Choosing the winners was a difficult task!

The theme for this month’s Sugar High Friday was Sugar High Friday #41: Sweet Gifts, where I asked you to tell me about a dessert you made (or want to make) for somebody else. What an amazing group of people you are, to have created such a huge collection of sweet gifts for your friends, […]

Sugar High Friday #41: Sweet Gifts

Sugar High Friday #41: Sweet Gifts

First things first: Up there, that’s a photo of my entirely-too-cute goddaughter eating freshly made marshmallow straight from the spatula. We’re pretty brave (some might say stupid), sugaring up a 4-year-old like that. But how can you deny a child such a sweet, sweet gift? I’m thrilled that I get to host Sugar High Friday […]

Roundup: Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That!

That fellow up there? That’s my partner, Dave. The one I’m always posting about. You may not have realized it yet, but this food blog is little more than a love poem to him. He doesn’t really have anything to do with this post, though. This is the roundup of all your fabulous entries to […]

Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That!

Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That!

I’m announcing a one-time-only food blogging event: Yes, Of Course You Can Pair Garlic With That! When I posted my recipe for dolmas (stuffed grape leaves), I mused that I should start a food blog event devoted to pairing garlic with hazelnut, a flavor combination that thrills me to no end. Dave and I discovered […]

Roundup: Sugar High Friday #26: Sugar Art

I want to thank and congratulate all of you. When I set the Sugar High Friday #26: Sugar Art challenge for this month’s Sugar High Friday, I was afraid I would scare people off, intimidate them out of just going ahead and having fun. Instead, you went ahead and made an extraordinary array of gorgeous […]

Blogging by Mail

Blogging by Mail

This post isn’t about cooking, or photography (see how I failed to make a still life out of all that stuff?). It’s about the sheer fun of sending presents to strangers, and receiving massive boxes of goodies in return. That’s what Blogging by Mail is all about. Last time I tried Blogging by Mail, the […]

This month, I am hosting Sugar High Friday, a traveling event that was originally created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess.

How to Make a Truffle from Scratch

How to Make a Truffle from Scratch

It was hard, trying to figure out what to do for Sugar High Friday #25: Truffles. After all, we all know how to make truffles – either you throw together a ganache and roll it in something, then keep it in the fridge, or you take out your chocolate molds and create chocolate shells into […]

Roundup: The Spice is Right VIII: Frankenstein’s Monster

The bird in the top photo was found in my parents’ house by the window, terrified, unable to escape. He was so scared that when we lifted him up with the pool net and carried him outside, he didn’t move at all. You can see how close he let me get to him in order […]

This is my entry for The Spice is Right VIII: Frankenstein’s Monster, where we are creating culinary mash-ups using spices from one cuisine in recipes or with techniques from another. Here, I have used Sichuan peppercorns to add a tingle to a bowl of classically American shrimp chowder. The deadline to post your entries is […]

Last Saturday night, I hosted the first-ever (to my knowledge) an entirely fabulous NYC Food Blogger Potluck. It was a smashing success, and I think we are all looking forward to making this a recurring event. I made my french onion soup dumplings, though I should go back and edit that post now that I […]

Cabbage Strudel and Paprika Ice Cream

While I am still on my Hungarian cooking kick, I offer you two desserts: one traditional, the other, not so much. This my entry for Sugar High Friday 23: Surprise Inside, which is run this month by Alanna of A Veggie Venture. Finding cabbage inside a dessert strudel is not surprising to Hungarians or their […]

Barbara of Tigers & Strawberries created one of my favorite food blog events, The Spice is Right. Every month, she sets a challenge with a spice-related theme.

Basil Sorbet with Lemon Olive Oil

Basil Sorbet with Lemon Olive Oil

I came across this recipe for basil or mint sorbet by Sara Kate over at Apartment Therapy: the kitchen, and of course had to give it a try. I followed Sara Kate’s recipe almost exactly, except that I used apple lambic instead of apple juice, and added it when I added the basil, because I […]

Roasted Red Pepper Chipotle Egg Rolls with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce

This is my contribution for The Spice is Right IV: It’s Too Darned Hot!, though, in truth, I am probably the only resident of New York City who is not completely sick of the heat by now. I am cold-blooded and reptilian, and nothing makes me happier than soaking in the warmth. I am trying […]

Circle Swap: Homemade Jams, Jellies, Curds, Chutneys, &c.

Summer is here, and I have been in a frenzy of home canning. I have been making jams, curds, chutneys, and sealing them in jars to lay in for the colder months to come. I know I am not the only one who acts on this urge. I propose that we add some variety to […]

Sour Cherry Sage Flower Jam

As soon as I saw the flowering sage at the farmer’s market, I just knew I had to use it in my entry for The Spice is Right #3: The Perfumed Garden, which called for us to use edible flowers in our cooking. And as I was saying, I have this extreme overabundance of sour […]

Sugar High Friday #19: Ginger It Up! posed a real challenge for me. You see, I love gingery sweets. I make them all the time. I’ve posted about one here already, my ginger rum churros with milk chocolate dipping sauce. I use ginger in my apple pies, my ice creams, everything. And I hate using […]

Paprika Sticky Rolls

For The Spice is Right #2: Sweet or Savory?, we were supposed to choose a spice used primarily in sweet or in savory applications in our native culture, and then turn it around and use it in the other. My mother’s side of the family is Hungarian, and so my life has been saturated with […]

Ginger Rum Churros with Milk Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Ginger Rum Churros with Milk Chocolate Dipping Sauce

One of the best things about NYC, and Park Slope in particular, is the abundance of streetbooks. Everywhere I go, I find books people have left out on the street for whomever may pass by. A few days after the move, we found an autographed copy of Bobby Flay Cooks American sitting in a box […]

“I’m not stupid, you know.” “Quit bragging.” “Stop being rude.” “When was the last time you read a book? The truth now.
