Strawberry Rhubarb Cake from Three Little Halves

A couple of years ago, I embarked on a mission to find the yummiest, most enticing, and most delicious recipe for fruit bread. The best fruit bread on this planet. Period. Just in case you are wondering, my search had nothing to do with culinary curiosity, nothing to do with a quest for excellence and kitchen supremacy. No, no, no, it was a different story altogether: my six-year-old daughter was refusing to eat fruits and an intervention was badly needed. Those who have a six-year-old will understand the magnitude of the effort. They know developing your child’s palate and diversifying… Read more

Molasses Ginger Bread | Wolf Gourmet 4-slice Toaster

Cottage Farm’s Molasses Ginger Loaf Cake

On a particularly early morning, I found myself sitting in one of London’s east end restaurants, working through details of a fast approaching and fairly high-pressure event. It was a misty wooly grey morning, and I had waited outside in the drizzle for someone to let me in. Being so early, the space was just a hair shy of warm, the ovens only having just begun their day’s labor. I ordered a cup of black coffee, imagining it would be the hottest thing on their early morning menu. A hand appeared in my peripheral vision and placed a plate in… Read more

A Welcomed Gift – Homemade Candied Pecans

Recreating recipes from fond memories is fun to do in your own kitchen, and these homemade candied pecans pay homage to the ones you may’ve had at the state fair. Do you recall the aroma of freshly roasted cinnamon and brown sugar wafting through the air at the fairgrounds? It was so enticing! There was always quite a crowd around the vendor every year. Our mom stood patiently in line to get each of us a bag. We were thrilled to get the little cone-shaped bag of nuts and ate them slowly, savoring each and every sweet and salty bite…. Read more

apple cake | Wolf Gourmet

Grandma’s Apple Cake

She never uses a recipe, just creams the butter and sugar, adds a few scoops of flour and a teaspoon or two of some other ingredients, dollops in sour cream and some chopped apples, stirs it all up in a cracked stoneware bowl and pours it into a baking dish generously greased with butter. Sliced almonds are sprinkled on top. She bakes it at 350. That’s all I have. You probably have one of these bakers in your life. There are no splattered cookbook pages or newspaper clippings from the 1980s in their kitchen. The classic stable of recipes is… Read more

Enjoy All the Berries with Mixed Berry Crisp

A favorite aunt used to bring a fruit crisp every Sunday for our family dinner. The winter months usually featured a homey, cinnamon-filled apple crisp, but by the time May rolled around, we were eagerly awaiting the change from apple crisp to some kind of berries. Strawberries were usually the first to appear. One-fruit crisps were her standby for years, and at her age she wasn’t making any changes. We pleaded with her to make a strawberry-rhubarb crisp too many times to count, and combining these two was as adventurous as she would get. Fast forward to today. There are… Read more
