Biscuits!

If you’re ever wondered what a 500-degree oven is for, it’s for cooking these little beauts: I haven’t made ‘em since…  oh gosh, probably since my previous life as a Victorian housewife.  But I made ‘em this morning.  The recipe I use (this time around anyway) derives from “Harriet’s Southern Biscuits” out of Jeff Smith’s [...]

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 [...]

English Muffins

[updated 8/8/2010: edited, and now with photos!] It took me a while to actually follow through on the comment from this post, but I finally made my own English muffins. The dough for English muffins is softer and stickier than your usual bread dough. During the second rise, you form the muffins and let it [...]

Orange-Almond Polenta Cake

This is a delightfully light and fluffy cake with the pleasant taste of oranges and a hint of almonds. It’s also super-easy to make. I am slightly disappointed that it doesn’t have the consistency of baked polenta– it has more of a cornbread consistency, but lighter. I’m sure I could tweak the recipe to make [...]

Pepperoni Bread

I had the urge to bake cookies for the holiday party at work, but was afraid other staff members would feel the same way and then there would be a glut of cookies. Not that I think that’s a bad thing, mind you, but in the interest of providing a more balanced set of foods [...]

Kumquat Nut Bread

Lipby and I went to Florida this past winter to visit his parents. We arrived, coincidentally enough, during the Kumquat Festival, and we just had to go. We all took a shuttle bus into Dade City, and were treated to kumquats, whole and in various preparations. Lipz and I bought a huge box of meiwa [...]

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 [...]

Cheddar Dill Beer Bread

We had lots of bottles of beer leftover from our last get-together. Since I can’t really drink beer anymore (more on this later), I figured I’d try to cook with some of it. I’ve made beer bread in the past. I don’t recommend using a dark beer like a stout or a porter, as the [...]
