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 […]

Sweet and Sticky Lemon Bar Recipe

One of the things that is really great about my job is that I get to travel all over the country making pictures. After a slow start to the year I have been on the road a good deal lately which unfortunately means that I haven’t been spending as much time in the kitchen. Too […]

Lemon Sponge Tarts

Lemon Sponge Tarts

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 […]
