Spring is upon us, and what better way to start celebrating some warmer weather than with the bright flavor of Meyer lemons? Meyer lemons have a sweeter flavor and less of a puckering sourness than your everyday lemons. They also look different with their darker, more orange color. If you were to cross a lemon […]
The first time I went to Paris, I may have driven my friends a little mad with my requests to stop at what felt like every shop that sold macarons. There were macarons in every color of the rainbow and so many delicious flavors available, it was impossible not to want to try them all! […]
It’s that time of year again when the air gets cooler, tree leaves start changing color, and pumpkin spice-flavored coffee and baked goods take over everything. A great friend and I had a baking day, and the bake of the day was pumpkin bread! The goal was to bake something that would make the house […]
I was browsing Instagram one day and came across a gorgeous cake by America’s Test Kitchen and learned that they published a new cake cookbook last year! I immediately ordered that book (of course), and then saw that they also published a new cookie cookbook, too! My mind was blown! It was difficult deciding which […]
I baked Vanilla-Brown Butter Madeleines from Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan for the Tuesdays with Dorie group this week. This is such an easy recipe to make, I ended up making these two days in a row! I had to make these twice because I learned the hard way not to turn out freshly baked Madeleines […]
One of this month’s recipe assignments for the Tuesdays with Dorie group from Dorie’s Cookies is for Strawberry Shortcake Cookies. It’s strawberry season, so it’s a great time to whip up a batch of these cookies. I’m happy to say that this is a very simple recipe that comes together very quickly.
It’s May and spring is transitioning into summer. I’m glad that the Tuesdays with Dorie group decided on the Springtime Cookies and Curd and Double-Butter Double-Baked Petit Beurre Cookies as recipes to bake this month. The cookies are nice and buttery with a nice cripsness to them, and the strawberries and citrus curd are incredibly […]
This Tuesdays with Dorie assignment from Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan is for Kamish, which is a mandelbrot (almond bread) recipe. The name Kamish comes from a woman named Toby Reichert, whose mandelbrot recipe was deemed as good as Dorie’s own grandmother’s version. This recipe is very simple, but it takes a little bit of time to complete […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Tuesdays with Dorie assignment! One of the recipes for the month of April is Viennese Sablés. These are crisp and buttery biscuits that are just as easy to make as they are to eat, which makes these very dangerous cookies. I made these Viennese Sablés a few years […]
Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops are cookies with a soft and chocolatey center that any chocoholic would love. The snowy crackly tops are made from powdered sugar, which surprisingly does not add a lot sweetness to the cookies. Dorie Greenspan’s cookie recipes have just enough sweetness to them, which is something I appreciate.
