Rainy Night Food: Pork and Turnips

Rainy Night Food: Pork and Turnips

Yesterday was a busy one at the studio. I started out with my now-regular routine: Make the coffee, get the day’s loaf of bread shaped and on the peel to bench proof, oven on to preheat. Then I spent some time on the phone with B&H working out a missing power cord from a recent […]

Five Minute Artisan Bread Follow-up

Five Minute Artisan Bread Follow-up

I was chatting over IM with a friend about my exciting new artisan bread in five minutes I’d just made with virtually no effort, and the following thought occurred to me: why isn’t everyone who bakes bread using this technique? Why NOT remove all that tedious kneading from the process and why NOT get the […]

Wednesday Night Goddess Salad

Wednesday Night Goddess Salad

I was all excited about my baking yesterday that I woke up extra early. I often have to struggle with my impatience to get started with something (in this case, baking) and my natural inclination to, you know, stay in bed.

Lemon Sponge Tarts

Lemon Sponge Tarts

As a kid growing up in Central Pennsylvania, I was exposed to a lot of Pennsylvania Dutch and Mennonite cooking. One of the cookbooks which my mother often referenced (and still does) is Food That Really Schmecksby Edna Staebler. This thing is an absolute gem, and completely worth the read. Keep in mind however, that […]

Fifty Percent Whole Wheat Pasta

Fifty Percent Whole Wheat Pasta

A few years ago, Dr. Fiance wanted to make her own pasta, so for her birthday or maybe Christmas I bought her a pasta maker. I’m fairly certain we made pasta maybe once with the machine and then put it back into the box, put the box under or behind some other box and didn’t […]
