Dark Chocolate & Mint – LA

July 3, 2013


I bought the most delicious chocolate spearmint from the Santa Monica farmers market.  Yes, that’s right.  There’s a chocolatey spearmint that you can grow in your garden.  It’s like a thin-mint in plant form.  This recipe marries together my favorite ice cream recipe with a silky, chocolate pudding.  It tastes super sinful, but guess what!  […]

Corn – NYC

March 19, 2013


Christina Tosi is my constant source of baking inspiration. Her ability to fuse nostalgic tastes with untraditional ingredients to create desserts that are completely brand new is both impressive and admirable. Over Christmas, I attempted her corn cookies to much success. Because after my CT experiment, I had left over corn powder – alot of it. […]

Corn – LA

While living in Boston, I was lucky enough to discover Flour, an incredible bakery in the South End.  Totally worth the hype.  World-famous banana bread.  Unreal sticky buns.  I’ve always coveted the cookbook, and I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift. I was immediately attracted to their corn muffin recipe.  They’re not […]

In the same vein, I want […]

Popcorn – LA

December 28, 2012


Holidays are nuts.  There are the usual suspects–gift shopping, Christmas card writing and holiday parties.  On top of that, we’ve been preparing (read: procrastinating) for a 16-day trip to Kenya and Tanzania.  That doesn’t leave us too much time for festive baking. I did get to make a few holiday treats this year: cardamom palmiers […]
