In January we did a very cold walk at Winnekenni Castle in Haverhill. I would have loved a few of these spicy sweet Limoncello Candied Ginger Scones to eat on the drive home, that’s for sure.
Making your own candied ginger is simple. And adding a citrus peel to the mix, like I did with lemon can add zing and heat to any dish.
When we got butternut squash in our Misfits Market Box I wanted to do something different. Then I got inspiration from a recipe for cabbage and mushroom pies. Yes, my brain jumps in random directions, but this time it landed on something delicious!
I recently got way more zucchini than I could use. So I made a zucchini bread, but added figs and pumpkin seeds. Sooo yummy. Just mix up the wet ingredients, mix up the dry, stir them together and bake. Easy and done in under an hour!
Making a special dessert for Christmas in 2020 brought back so many memories of life in the business world back in the 80s and 90s, and memories of “business lunches” in and around Boston. But I couldn’t not include the recipe that brought these memories back! A simple Berries Pavlova and a sneaky recipe for Strawberries Romanoff if you’re paying attention.
I love lemons, and the more I cook the more I realize they have a place in pretty much every recipe! With this recipe it’s an opportunity to add tangy sweetness to any dessert. Well, maybe not chocolate cake, but then again, your choice! A simple recipe for citrus curd, with some alternatives and some ideas for using it. Why not check out my pavlova recipe, too? The perfect place for a zingy curd like this.
We started using Misfits Market for fruits and veggies. A great deal and lots of inspiration for future recipes. Read more about my experience and maybe take a walk down memory lane if you loved Rudolph. Yup, I tied them together!
Babka is a “wow” recipe, and rightly so. It takes time, patience, and the ability to really read a recipe. But it’s so worth it when you’ve finished. I hope you enjoy my version featuring white chocolate, apricots and almonds.
Homemade applesauce is one of the easiest recipes, and a great way to use up apples when your day of picking turned into way more apples than you can eat!
I love naan. With this recipe, I added the twist of cranberries and walnuts. A new way to prepare a favorite you usually enjoy with Indian food. Why not naan for Friendsgiving this year?
