Pistachio Olive Oil Mini Tea Cakes

Pistachio Olive Oil Mini Tea Cakes

Ever buy yourself a little treat, something that sounded perfect and tasty, but after biting into it disappointment ensued. Maybe the bakery wasn’t as skilled as you hoped, or perhaps the pastry had been waiting a little too long for someone to come by and savor its original deliciousness. Whatever the case, you were left with the “wha waa” feeling.

It happens occasionally. Sometimes even from a good bakery. Like so much in life, these moments can be cause for a little bitch and moan »

Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins – Dedicated to Dante

Roasted Strawberry Whole Wheat Muffins – Dedicated to Dante

It’s hard to not think of Dante when I look at the strawberry patch. The ruby red berries are still dangling from their lengthy stems, begging to be plucked. Normally this is the time of year Dante and Sierra both would scour every inch of the patch for sweet berries. And this was the time of year that we’d share the fruit with not just our beloved dogs, but with the other garden critters and hungry, pecking visitors.

Dante was a strawberry lover and in »

Banana Cake with Butterscotch, I Wanted a Cake

Banana Cake with Butterscotch, I Wanted a Cake

We entered the convention center’s ballroom to find two women sitting on the stage. One in her 30′s-40′s, chef jacket attired with a professional’s serene gaze. The other – a bubbly, plump Southern Grandma with short cropped hair, her enthusiasm barely contained. That woman was Shirley O. Corriher and over the next 45 minutes she would become one of my heroes.

It was the 2011 IACP conference in Austin, TX and Diane and I had just given a talk on food photography. With our duties »

Kitchen Aid Luncheon at our Studio & Swiss Meringue Frosting Recipe

Kitchen Aid Luncheon at our Studio & Swiss Meringue Frosting Recipe

For the last 16 years that we’ve been together, there are a few items that still have made it through the entire decade and half relationship. Our photo albums documenting our mischievous younger days still exist in the back corner of our bookshelf. Two fruit trees in pots that started off on our apartment patio balcony have survived 2 major moves are and are currently flourishing in their final garden spot. And then of course, our KitchenAid stand mixer has stood the test of time »

The Fruit Burglar and Chocolate Cherry Crisp

The Fruit Burglar and Chocolate Cherry Crisp

I live with a fruit thief. It’s not Sierra, and I’m not talking about the neighborhood possums. I tend to think of us as living near them, not with them. No. I’m talking about the adorable and deceptively innocent looking Diane.

Take a road-trip with her and you’ll see what I mean. On a quiet little drive through the countryside and happen to pass an ripe apple tree growing alongside the road, the car will be stopping. Then I will pry the fingernails off my »

Brown Butter and Oat Scones & Thoughts on Egypt

Brown Butter and Oat Scones & Thoughts on Egypt

Thursday night I went to bed determined to wake up in the morning and rhapsodize about brown butter and teff flour. Culinary alchemy. A magical Ethiopian grass seed. Then that morning came and something extraordinary happened.

Diane asked to put on the news. “Something’s happened in Eygpt.”»

This is an open letter of apology to all the mothers of those who work in the service industry. There is no substitute for the absence of hugs and shared holiday meals.  There is no explanation which will ease your hearts of our absence, and for that we are sorry.

Vietnamese Cinnamon Rolls – The Quest

Vietnamese Cinnamon Rolls – The Quest

Every once in a while, I get obsessive. Usually it’s over something sweet, but that may be my sweet jaw whispering in my ear. Right now, cinnamon rolls are calling to me.»

Mystery X Cookies – Oatmeal Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mystery X Cookies – Oatmeal Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

don’t forget the milk

Rummaging through our kitchen’s “don’t know where else to put it” box, we pulled out this mysterious cookie recipe. It was written in a clean gracefully-looping woman’s handwriting with nothing more than very basic ingredients and instructions. Neither of us had a clue who had given it to us, but that’s not about to stop us from trying a new cookie recipe.»

S’mores on a Stick – Marshmallow Pops!

S’mores on a Stick – Marshmallow Pops!

Everyone has been giggling over Sunday’s adorable Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pops.  Although they are super cute (check out Katie’s too), easy to make, and very festive for the Christmas season, they aren’t my favorite.

Even as a kid, I was never a big marshmallow fan. At least in it’s normal solid state.  Marshmallows in the big colorful boxes of sugar, I mean cereal… Pass the cheerios, please. Rocky Road ice cream… Meh.   But marshmallows which had been made molten under the flame or »

Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pops – Holiday Happiness on a Stick

Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Pops – Holiday Happiness on a Stick

There’s an obvious cult happening all over the internet and home kitchens. All the wonderful and cute blame goes to adorable Angie at Bakerella. Honestly (and unfortunately) we didn’t discover the world of Bakerella and Cake Pops until we met Angie at our last Food Blog Forum seminar in Atlanta. There was an energetic buzz around Angie and her fans were clasping to her new book, Cake Pops, like it was the hottest new toy in the food world.

Pumpkin Crème Brûlée & How to Caramelize Crème Brûlée Video

Pumpkin Crème Brûlée & How to Caramelize Crème Brûlée Video

Before writing this post I almost stumbled into saying that some of our other pumpkin recipes were boring. But then after reading another’s brilliant post on a completely different non-food topic, I realized this wasn’t accurate. Skilled writers are more than a mere pleasure to read, they make you think. Their words stimulate the mind, help keep us from stumbling through life mindlessly reacting and reaching.

Roger Ebert recently wrote on his blog some thoughts on loneliness. He remarked how he has never felt particularly »

Inspiration from the Sweet Air of Atlanta- Sweet Potato Bars w/ Chocolate

Inspiration from the Sweet Air of Atlanta- Sweet Potato Bars w/ Chocolate

Atlanta Food Blog Forum rocked!  Until this last week our only experiences w/ Atlanta have entailed epic misguided treks within the Atlanta International Airport courtesy of Delta and delayed red-eye flights. Not pleasant.

However, we’re not ones to judge an area by its airports (or freeways for that matter), so we were excited to experience a true tidbit of Atlanta.  With the excuse of FBF’s Atlanta Seminar propelling us back to the east coast, we barefooted our way past TSA, watched a movie and a »

Nectarine & Raspberry Cobbler – Summertime Memories

Few desserts embody summertime for me more than chin-dripping, sweet nectarines combined with plump, slightly tart raspberries slowly baked together under a rustic country-style topping.  Cobblers, crumbles, pies, crisps laden with juicy summer fruit, may the gods help me from eating the whole thing in one sitting. Especially with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or ice cream served alongside.»

Orange Marmalade Cookies with Orange Zest Icing

Orange Marmalade Cookies with Orange Zest Icing

Rarely does a new cookie recipe make it into our abode’s “must make” repertoire. With our household favorites being so loved (like the chocolate chunk, snickerdoodle w/ Viet cinnamon, and oatmeal rum raisin recipes), a new find has to be pretty damn good to pass up baking an old favorite. These orange marmalade cookies with orange zest icing are pretty damn good.»

Ginger Peach Muffins – Good To The Grain Cookbook

This is the time of year we start to inhale stone fruits, but ultimately there comes atime when there are too many to eat off the tree and we’re searching for additional alternatives to eat them. As Summer’s warm love beings to fill up our peaches, plums and nectarines with sweet juice to sink our faces into, nature conveniently decides to let them all ripen and drop at once. We just can’t keep up!

This year we have an added succulent hailstorm of necta-plums to add »

Chocolate Crack Cookies from David Lebovitz, Ready for Dessert

Warning: These chocolate cookies are crack, just like the title and photo suggests (but it isn’t really the hard stuff in the photo.  Powdered sugar and palm sugar were the prop fill ins.)

Need your chocolate cookie fix?  Here’s a little something for you adapted from the latest book of the dessert masterDavid Lebovitz, “Ready for Dessert“.

David’s chocolate crack cookies are highly addictive chocolate bombs of ecstasy that he originally crafted in the kitchen of Chez Panisse.  He innocently claims the name comes from »
