If you’ve been following my tweets (and you should, if you want more updates than this blog is currently providing), you know I’ve been on a several-month quest for the perfect granola and granola bar recipe. It’s been a frustrating quest. For granola, I like it not too sweet, clumpy, and with lots of nuts [...]

Snickerdoodles

Being the cookie junkie that I am, I can’t believe that this is the first post about cookies that I’ve written for this blog. Well, better late than never. I am asked to make this cookie every year around the holidays. This is Lipby’s favorite. I love anything with cinnamon in it, so it’s one [...]

I could have sworn I already posted this here, but I’m probably thinking of my previous blog…  In any event, Great-Grandmother Charity died a couple of decades ago, and lived to a ripe old age before she did, so the provenance of this recipe could easily be over 100 years old.  It is the heirloom [...]

Dragonia’s Macaroni & Cheese

I’ve been hearing about this recipe for years now, so it was a delight to finally get to try it from the source. It is intended to be a low carb recipe- its author maintains a low-carb regimen- but now that I’ve published it here, there is apparently some contention over whether or not that [...]

Winter Panzanella

In the summertime, I like to make panzanella. When I saw that there were recipes for a winter version, I had to try it. This is a yummy combination of garlic-parmesan croutons, butternut squash, and Brussels sprouts, from Michael Chiarello. The recipe is here. Some changes: It took me twice as long to cook the [...]

I haven’t had success with making a proper pasta carbonara– I end up scrambling the eggs. This recipe seemed like a good compromise– I do like a good poached egg. This is quick to make, too. Serves 1-2 Ingredients: 2 slices of bacon, cut into pieces (I used turkey bacon) 1/4 lb. spaghetti (I used [...]

Hot Buttered… Pop-Tarts?

The shoutbox of a forum I help administer is currently being used for a discussion of the nuances of Pop-Tarts.  The gentleman from the Golden Realm who precipitated this discussion apparently purchases the unfrosted ones, toasts them and then butters them, something which it would never occur to me to do, simply because it would [...]

Maple Pecan Pie

It’s no secret: I like pie. So when my friend Tom suggested creating a new holiday, International Pie for Breakfast Day, I enthusiastically told him I’d be willing to participate. I asked Lipby what his favorite pie is, and he said pecan. I found a lovely recipe on Epicurious for a Maple Pecan Pie. The [...]

Pulla

I usually make cookies for the holidays. I don’t know why, but this year, I didn’t feel like making the multitudes that I usually do. I saw photos of Pulla last year on Tastespotting, and thought to myself, “I’ll make those for next year.” So, I’m giving this Finnish bread to Lipby’s family this year [...]
