We’re talking about fresh tart cherries, not canned – there’s no comparison. Making headlines recently as one of the latest identified “superfoods,”… View Article

  When you soak meat in a flavor-enhancing liquid, it’s known as marinating.  When it’s fruit, it’s called macerating.  For strawberries and other fruit, maceration can also be accomplished with just a sprinkling of sugar which draws out the natural juices of many fruits, resulting in a sweetened natural syrup, eagerly awaiting pairing with a… View Article

Macaroons have a blurry history, as many old recipes do, but according to The Nibble magazine and some culinary historians, this cookie’s history can be traced back to an Italian monastery.  The recipe for this meringue-like cookie, originally made with egg whites and ground almonds, evolved over time to include food colorings and various fillings… View Article

Chestnut season each year arrives just in time for the holidays, making this treat a great way to wrap up any winter holiday meal.  A special chestnut roasting pan with holes in the bottom is not required, but it does make the roasting a little more exciting.  We usually just roast them in the oven,… View Article

We originally made these muffins only as an excuse to bake something in chique square parchment papers, but they turned out to be such a great treat we’ll be making them a lot more often.
