Fruit Cake

Monday, December 7, 2009

Wait!  Before you hit the back button just hear me out. I know fruit cake gets a bad rap, and most of the time it is well deserved.  Be it the candied citron, the fluorescent cherries, or insipidly sweet cake, most fruit cake is in fact very bad.  Terrible even.  I’m still asking you to […]

Double Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I love to tweak recipes. Sometimes they are big tweaks, other times it is a small change with a HUGE impact. This is one of those recipes. In The Joy of Cooking there is a recipe for perfectly lovely Peanut Butter Cookies. They are traditional, with the crosshatch design on the top, in a way […]

Ready for something a tad more advanced?  It takes time to make, but it is SO worth it. I fell in love with croissant making a few semesters ago in my Laminated Dough class.  Bread making is among my favorite things to do in the kitchen, but making laminated doughs (doughs with butter sandwiched between […]

There is something of a joke in my family about cream cheese.   You see, my father loves the stuff.  I’ve seen him eat it on crackers, with salsa, on chips, or even plain.  Whenever he tries a new recipe, inevitably, his first comment is that it does not have enough cream cheese.  (Most of […]

                          Christmas cookies.  Two little words, but what images and memories they conjure.  In my family they are tradition.  I have five cookies that I make every year without fail. I have been known to add a new cookie into the mix from time to […]

So, I am not feeling the holiday spirit this year, for some reason.  Maybe it is the elections, maybe it is the economy or the tax-payer bail-outs, or maybe it is the alignment of the stars.  Whatever the reason I have gotten lazy on my Christmas baking.  If I wait too much longer I will find […]

Last night I began my holiday cookie fest.  I made Chocolate Chip Bars and Nigella’s Triple Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Mmmmm.  I doubled the recipes for both and I now have five containers of cookies ready to eat/give/serve in the freezer.   I will be doing Jam Thumbprints and Peanut Butter Cookies sometime this week, and this […]
