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

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. Except that it turns out it was Monday when you made the bread pudding instead of Tuesday because […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mexican Vanilla and More Cookies

Mexican Vanilla and More Cookies

So I’m back from my two week road trip with dad. Which is to say that I am no longer on vacation and I’m back to work. Lots of work. Oh, poor me, I have people who want to pay me to make pictures for them. My life is so hard. Seriously, how awesome is […]

Oat Soda Bread

Oat Soda Bread

Soda bread. Sounds all old timey doesn’t it? Conjures up images of John O’Hara novels and aproned grandmothers in country kitchens. I’ve been making all of my bread from scratch these days (once you go home-made it’s hard to go back) but I have been sticking with yeast breads. I ran across a post over […]
