Our boys LOVE crepes. A little sliver of a crepe shop opened in our neighborhood recently and the boys ask to stop every time we pass it. According to the boys, they make the best Nutella crepes.
In the past, I have made crepes reluctantly. I never thought I did it very well. I used to [...]
These pancakes were not pretty to look at, but my boys inhaled them and kept asking for more. I made them several times this summer, mostly because when Aunt Sylvia was visiting, we always had a lot of cottage cheese in the refrigerator as she was trying to watch her weight. My boys aren’t big [...]
Recently, I had some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever eaten. It came from a tiny place in Greenport, NY called Salamanders. I tried to buy chicken there once before for the boys, but if you don’t order in advance, no chicken for you! With your chicken comes [...]
I have been very curious about making cheese for some time now. I heard it was easy to make, but I never had the cheesecloth to make it. I just purchased some from Amazon. It cost twice as much as other cheesecloth on the site, but according to the reviews, I needed a very fine [...]
My boys love carbohydrates, and they LOVE naan. They don’t like any other Indian food, just the bread, but they do love the bread. I made some just before we left Shelter Island because I had never made bread on the grill before; it looked like fun. Although this is a recipe that calls for [...]
I’ve been on a peach kick this summer. I bought some the other day, and I knew I’d need to cook with a couple of them because we’re not eating them fast enough. One of my sons – my best fruit eater – has developed Oral Allergy Syndrome. As a result [...]
My boys love waffles for breakfast, and I must admit that we always have a box of Eggo waffles in the freezer for the days when I don’t cook breakfast. I have made waffles before, but I didn’t have a go-to waffle recipe until now. I found this recipe about a month ago, and I [...]
You dip anything in sugar and you’ve got my attention.
I’ve been looking at a couple of popover recipes lately, and I actually made one the other night with my son that was a big flop. What were supposed to be nice, puffy, savory popovers turned out to be short, dense hockey pucks. I’m not exactly [...]
Our good friend Harriet came over for dinner tonight and I always try a new recipe when she visits. We always love her visits because she is an amazing baker and she brings her homemade cookies. Yum!
I’m trying to introduce new green vegetables into our diets and I found this recipe in the January issue [...]
