Delicious Lemon Loaf

Share

I love a good lemon bread. It’s great for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. This one is quite moist and bursting with flavor. Starbucks sells something just like it, and although I’ve never tried theirs, I bet this one is better. I have made this recipe several times now and it has always been […]

Loiusa's Cake

Share

I made this cake the other day on a lark. It was described as a cake that could be served for breakfast so I made it for the boys. As is typical with many new things I make, the boys were skeptical that it was loaded with vegetables. I assured them that it wasn’t, but […]

Cocoa Buttermilk Breakfast Biscuits with Brown Sugar Cinnamon Butter

Share

These are very quick and easy biscuits and if you’re a baker, you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen cabinets. If you don’t happen to have buttermilk, you can make your own. These are incredible right out of the oven. They’re a perfect weekend breakfast treat.

You don’t need an electric mixer for […]

Lemon White Chocolate Bars

Share

My lemon-loving son saw a picture of these bars on my computer – I think I had a Pinterest page open – and he begged me to make them. He is a lemon fanatic as long as there is no pulp anywhere to be found in the recipe. When he saw that this was made […]

Chocolate Ganache Cake

Share

I made this cake for a dinner party we were supposed to have on Saturday night. I made the cake itself on Friday, wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap and stored it in the refrigerator. Unfortunately the dinner party didn’t happen because one of my dear friends, and one of our guests that night, had […]

Easter Egg Cookie Dough Truffles

Share

One of my sons made these the other day. He’s a huge cookie dough fan. We actually went downtown a couple of weekends ago to a shop called DÕ. All they sell is cookie dough. It’s served like ice cream and it’s such a phenomenon in NYC that it’s almost impossible to get in. We […]

Maple Cinnamon Biscuits

Share

If you’re looking for something different to make for breakfast or brunch, try these biscuits. They’re wonderful hot out of the oven with butter.

The original recipe calls for adding 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans. I left them out because the boys don’t love nuts in things, but I personally think they’d be a great addition. […]

Tomato, Melted Leek and Feta Galette

Share

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 […]

Fudge-Striped Shortbread Cookies

Share

I am one of the co-presidents of my sons’ school PTA and I bring cookies to each of our Executive Board meetings. This time, I brought unfinished cookies. I started to make these cookies too late in the afternoon (the story of my life!), so I only had time to dip the bottoms in chocolate. […]

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Share

This recipe comes from a bookmark that I’ve had kicking around for a while. When I received a box of grapefruit as a gift, and we weren’t eating them fast enough (although they keep well for a while in the refrigerator), I knew it was time to try this recipe.

One of my sons loved this […]
