My sons LOVE these truffles, and one of them now loves to make them. They are quite good, and they taste very much like a truffle I recently had for dessert at a restaurant called Momofuku Má Pêche.
I know that some people are concerned about eating raw flour because of its potential to contain E […]
This is a nice, comforting soup that’s great for chilly weather. It’s vegetarian and full of healthy ingredients. It’s thickened with a can of pumpkin puree, but doesn’t taste like pumpkin at all. Consider the pumpkin a thickener rather than a flavor-enhancer. As written, the soup is subtly seasoned and has a mild flavor. I […]
This is one of my favorite galette recipes. What is a galette, you ask? According to cookbook author David Leibovitz, “Galette is a term used in French cuisine to designate various types of flat round or freeform crusty cakes.” My favorite part of that definition is the word freeform, which screams rustic, meaning it doesn’t […]
Empanadas have been part of our regular dinner rotation for a while now. The boys LOVE them – well, three out of four boys love them. One still primarily eats yogurt and peanut butter sandwiches. Now, wouldn’t you think it was easy to make a meal that three out of four boys eat? Well, it […]
We have the most wonderful neighbors on Shelter Island and this recipe came from one of them. Our neighbor Jessie is famous for her corn salad, which highlights the best of summer’s produce in a very simple but incredibly delicious recipe. This is a perfect recipe for fresh corn season, which is August if you […]
These are the best black bean burgers I have ever made. You have to plan ahead because they need to rest for at least an hour before cooking them, but they’re well worth the planning. Many bean burgers have a mushy consistency. Not these. In a bun, they hold up like a hamburger. I like […]
This is like a vegetarian tuna salad sandwich, and it’s just about as quick to make as tuna salad is. It doesn’t exactly taste like tuna, but it definitely holds together like tuna salad, and it’s nice and tangy because of the vinegar in it. With all of the news about mercury in tuna and […]
Many Rice Krispie treats can be very, very sweet. My husband was recently commenting that he likes them when they’re salty and not cloying. This recipe is the answer! These are slightly salty and definitely not as sweet as traditional Rice Krispie treats. I think the nutty flavor of the brown butter tones down the […]
This recipe is an old favorite of mine. I remember it fondly from my childhood. The recipe was on the back of the butterscotch chips bag. They’re a delicious, chewy oatmeal cookie with butterscotch chips.
Three out of four of my boys love these. One claims he doesn’t like butterscotch, so he won’t go near them. […]
