Quinoa Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Quinoa Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

I know, I know, another cookie recipe. But this one isn’t as much a cookie recipe as it is a power-bar-health-nut kinda recipe. Sure it has two kinds of sugar … ok, three kinds if you count the honey, but the rest of the ingredients are pretty healthy. Or so I’m led to believe reading […]

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Coconut Oatmeal Lace Cookies

I’ve had the ingredients for these cookies lying around for some time now because after reading the original recipe I had the full intention of getting on my inner Jackson Pollock. What do you think? I’m thinking they look pretty damn good. Call up my agent, I see a cookie gallery show in SoHo in […]

Coffee Bourbon Chocolate Chunk Pecan Blondies

So you’re supposed to bring dessert to a dinner on Wednesday, so you whip up a really tasty apple and maple syrup bread pudding using leftover potato rolls from Thanksgiving a day early just so you’re ready.

Jim Lahey Slow Fermentation Pizza Dough

Jim Lahey Slow Fermentation Pizza Dough

You know what is even better than pizza? Having cold pizza for breakfast. My friend recently Iron Stef recently tweeted about putting a fried egg on day old pizza for breakfast, which sounded awesome. And putting an egg on a pizza while you bake it is totally an option too. Of course, in order to […]

Ciabatta? You Calling Me Ciabatta?

Ciabatta? You Calling Me Ciabatta?

Ciabatta! For some reason it seems to me that the word “ciabatta” should be some sort of Italian insult. Here, I’ll use it in a sentence: “Hey Whole Foods, you ciabatta, why the ciabatta should a few bags of grains cost me almost fifty ciabatta dollars?” Has a certain ring to it doesn’t it? “That’s […]

Super Bowl Recipe: Baked Hot Wings

Last year in our first January in St. Louis Dr. Fiance and I tried to organize a Super Bowl party. After mentioning it several times our friends finally told us that unfortunately our television was just too small to accomodate a true Super Bowl party. Our television, which was enormous in our NYC apartment has […]

Bread and Water

Fall is turning into winter, it gets dark far too early, it’s cold and dark out. Yes, winter has started to creep into St. Louis. And as the wind whistles around outside, it is blowing through the empty halls of this blog as well. Sorry about that. What happened to me? What happened to November? […]

I'm Back with Baguettes

I’m Back with Baguettes

On Friday I wrapped on the last shoot in a several week assignment that took me to Dallas, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Scottsdale and finally Silicon Valley. Before that another project had me on the road to DC, Raleigh, San Francisco, middle of nowhere Arkansas, and New York City. After the jet lag sorted itself […]

Lemon Lime Shortbread Cookies with Fresh Basil

Lemon Lime Shortbread Cookies with Fresh Basil

I like single serving foods, particularly single serving desserts. I don’t eat a ton of sweets as it is, and when I make something large like a cake or a pie, I end up eating too much of it at once or letting it go to waste by not eating enough of it. We are […]
