Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Baked Eggs with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Sunday mornings are generally for sleeping late, coffee and the paper, maybe some football if it’s in season. When we lived in New York Sunday mornings often meant brunch out somewhere as well. It is perfectly acceptable in New York to have brunch at 12 or 1pm meaning there is no rush to get up. […]

Cherry Apricot Cobbler

Cherry Apricot Cobbler

As I mentioned in my last post, I got over-zealous with my cherry purchasing a few days ago and ended up with a truckload of the buggers. I started right out with storing a couple pounds of them away in the fridge, deeply marinated in brandy for a day this fall when they will emerge […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Black Walnuts

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Black Walnuts

After what seems like a few months without rain here in St. Louis, today has been damp and stormy. I have spent most of my non-photography hours reading up on marketing for my business (yawn) and enhancing the SEO for my various websites (snore). Both of these activities are crucial for my business, but boy […]

Dutch Oven No-Knead Bread

Dutch Oven No-Knead Bread

Ever since I started making the “five minute a day bread” back in the fall, I’ve been pretty much going through the motions. I tweaked the recipe a bit to a point where I can bake consistent and tasty bread with practically no effort. This is awesome, and has ruined me for most grocery-store-bakery breads […]

Soft Pretzels

Soft Pretzels

I know it’s kinda silly to be posting about snack food two posts in a row, but the AC has been out for a few days and the apartment has been too hot to cook in. Also we had house guests including a borrowed poodle over Memorial Day Weekend, so I while a lot of […]

Quick Pizza Dough

Quick Pizza Dough

Hey, wanna start a fight? Ask any group of people what they think the best pizza in the world is. For every five or six people you’ll get seven or eight answers. For me? I like a lot of different kinds of pizza, and lets be honest, there is rarely a piece of pizza that […]

Date Nut Bread

Have I mentioned how it has crossed my mind to turn Shoot To Cook into an all-baking blog? Don’t worry, I’m not going to but it sometimes is tempting. If it weren’t for my fear of my slowing metabolism in old age, the scourge of carbs, and my general concerns about obesity I’d eat nothing […]

Blueberry Lemon Corn Muffins

Blueberry Lemon Corn Muffins

A day or so ago I got into a discussion about favorite diner foods. Lots of people chose things like biscuits and gravy, grilled cheese, etc. For me, however, my favorite diner food memory goes back to this terrible terrible diner in Central PA that we used to frequent before we were old enough to […]

Sunday Morning Biscuits

Sunday Morning Biscuits

It’s been a busy couple of months which is why there has been a bit of a slow down of posting here on the blog. For good or for worse, paid work has to come before the unpaid work. Later this afternoon I’m heading off to Canada for a portrait session for an executive in […]

Banana Walnut Bread With Cognac

Banana Walnut Bread With Cognac

Hello, spring? Why do you keep punking out on me? Once again we were running outside in shorts and now it’s 40 degrees again. I suppose when it’s 110 in August I’m going to look back fondly on these cool days, but for now I want warm breezes and I want to wear shorts. Clearly […]
