210 Holiday Cookies, 3 Recipes - The Approach

210 Holiday Cookies, 3 Recipes - The Approach

This author has a distaste for surprises. There’s no skydiving on the bucket list, bungee jumping, long walks down dark alleys in foreign countries and, along similar lines, submitting for dessert, an untested cookie recipe could happen in something like a hostage situation where duress came in to play, but...

Reese's Déjà Vu Commercial Music

Reese's Déjà Vu Commercial Music

A debate rages on amongst passionate Internet surfers who ride over to YouTube to catch the tune scored behind Reese’s August 2013 commercial for Peanut Butter Cups. The spot is brilliant and features simple animation and notes of what promises to be part of a great song. Long known is...

Profiterole and a Beach Scene

Profiterole and a Beach Scene

Snapped at Sugar Reef in Hollywood, FL – on the menu for dessert and presented mostly as a signature item, the Profiterole is best had earlier before the pastry dries out a little and is still soft. Regardless, this turns eyes toward your table when it arrives. The Caribbean backdrop...

Baking Cakes - Metal vs Glass

Baking Cakes - Metal vs Glass

Recreated here, a first, mostly harmless mistake from the kitchen: Two very different cake pans to cook a single Banana Cake yield to illustrate what differences exist in baking tools. We’re taking a pretty good look at two readily available tools – cake pans by Pyrex and Smart Living. Both...

In praise of pears

In praise of pears

In perfect foodie spirit, some friends recently invited a small group over to taste the results of a new lamb recipe. Food tastings are typically casual, pedestrian affairs with a forgivable do-it-yourself atmosphere where any slack in serving or presentation left by the host is picked up naturally by the...

Pannu Kakku, the Finnish Oven Pancake

Pannu Kakku, the Finnish Oven Pancake

On the way to planning for a friend’s third annual birthday dinner, an idea came to create dishes based on breakfast. That idea was abandoned shortly thereafter and it’s a good thing. What ended up appearing at the dinner party was perfect and, while considering desserts, the birthday girl forwarded...

Pie Crust Variations and Hand Pie Fillings

Pie Crust Variations and Hand Pie Fillings

A balanced pie crust recipe is supposed to result in a light, golden, flavor-neutral crust that’s flaky, sometimes buttery and all the time supposed to hold things together. This author delivered a disaster for Christmas Eve’s Dessert, Apple Pie with Crumble Top. The crust was great, but the filling had...

Triple badass to the core

Triple badass to the core

Peeling apples is kitchen punishment for people you need to keep busy. With a cheap, vintage-style apple peeler, though, peeling apples will become the kitchen reward! Remember how much fun it was sharpening a pencil in grade school? Relive the joy and put that same round and round motion to...

Alfajore in the Skylight with Peruvians!

Alfajore in the Skylight with Peruvians!

Liking the caramel drizzle which might actually be dulce de leche – milk candy, or sweet of milk – beneath the perfectly formed Alfajore one reader got for dessert at La Limena in Rockville, MD. With the spot so food-photo friendly, it’s a good thing they have all those...

Old Banana news, old Banana Cake Recipe

Old Banana news, old Banana Cake Recipe

Cheers to Jay for the entertaining report about iTouches at a local restaurant used by waitstaff that confuse the patrons into making managerial complaints about their waitron units text messaging while orders are placed – Jeers to AOL-owned SlashFood for reporting that the Tropical Race Four virus...

Three Peanut Butter Cookie Recipes

Three Peanut Butter Cookie Recipes

How about a bevy of choices to match a situation you may encounter since no one recipe can be called “the best?” Having craved peanut butter cookie recipes for no reason other than to stuff my fat face, I’ve found vastly different “best” recipes with some definite losers. ...
