Triple Cheesecake

Triple Cheesecake

rewritten 3.30.16 This is really straightforward and delightful and even tastes better the next day making it a perfect make-ahead dessert. Since it needs time to cool and set, you have to plan this one out anyway so why not have some old time fun with the scheming? There are...

Easter Apple Chutney for Pork or Ham

Easter Apple Chutney for Pork or Ham

Though mostly Pear, we’ve gone and created something in the FoodNewsie Kitchen Labs that’s a keeper and wormed its way into the annual tradition of Easter dinner: Easter Apple Chutney. We don’t often have exclusive recipes, so this was a pretty big score made more so by the two other...

Of soup; the Cornerstone of Tomato Basil Soup

Of soup; the Cornerstone of Tomato Basil Soup

There are two reasons to be happy about food: One is that it can be really delicious, and; two, is that it can be really easy to make. This soup is the reason to be happy about food. When you begin making tomato soup, you realize you’ve arrived at one...

Strawberry shortcake on Baking Soda biscuits

Strawberry shortcake on Baking Soda biscuits

Ed. Re-posted fresh after a telling test. The pick-your-own season for strawberries may have come mostly to a close, but before it did, Bob took great advantage and handed out deconstructed shortcake desserts to friends. The homemade Baking Soda biscuit and whipped cream remind the eater what a throwback this...

Our Lychee Tree suffers gravely

Our Lychee Tree suffers gravely

Given this author’s laughable experience with plant recognition and successful plantings, all the help imaginable is what’s needed to track a record of successes and failures and plot new courses to avert disasters. In Miami, that help comes from a fruit tree; peculiar to many Zones in the United States,...

Off The Ropes

Off The Ropes

We love our few readers and want to tell you what March and April have been up to that kept us so busy, we couldn’t post but one, silly story. March 22nd; our official birthday – that even passed without so much as a peep. What’s been beating...

A well fed romance

A well fed romance

Doubling down on goodness! That’s the way Mica prepared a Valentine’s Day Dinner for his gal Catherine, about whom, we can assume, he’s feeling pretty good. Even from the slippery quality of the image, food lovers can pick out the Lobster paired with Shrimp and the Brussel Sprouts paired with...

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...

Pearapple:  Cross-breed or mutant?

Pearapple: Cross-breed or mutant?

There are very few sites on the matter. When adding exotic fruits to a salad, papaya, mango and Pearapple are all good choices. Grocers local to the East Coast USA have started cramming Pearapples in between the apples and pears and most come from Chile. So...

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...

Old Banana news, old Banana Cake Recipe

Old Banana news, old Banana Cake Recipe

Toying with Mango Lassi Honey Layers

Toying with Mango Lassi Honey Layers

For about $10 bucks and 5 mins prep with 5 mins set-up and a flair for the dramatic, you can bring a Mango Lassi to the table that will grab more attention than the unfortunate name of the drink. Steady your hand, get your blender and get ready to make...
