Cardamom Spiced Pear Turnovers

Cardamom Spiced Pear Turnovers from The Broken Bread

Now that the season has turned to the crisp atmosphere of winter, it’s the perfect time to start cozying up by the fireplace, hot cocoa in hand, or to wrap yourself in your favorite blanket while sipping on the morning’s coffee. But best of all is enjoying all the warm baked treats that are so appropriate this time of year. And hardly anything is better than a fresh batch of cardamom-spiced pear turnovers. Unlike the bursting flavor of summer stone fruits and berries, winter fruit is rich but understated—the flavors need to be coaxed into fullness. So, in this recipe… Read more

Sugar Cookie Bars

Sugar Cookie Bars from Grandbaby Cakes

During the holiday season, cookie baking is at its prime.  I love whipping up several batches of cookie dough so I can bake dozens of cookies for family and friends.  The classics like gingerbread and sugar cookies can always be counted on to be holiday favorites. Sometimes, however, I like to mix it up and change the texture and end result altogether. That’s where these Sugar Cookie Bars come in.  They are the perfect cross between a sugar cookie and a dessert bar. They taste just like sugar cookies but are thicker and pack in more flavor. I love using… Read more

Earl Grey Chocolate Mousse with Lavender-Mascarpone Whipped Cream

Evan Kalman’s Smoked Salt & Earl Grey Chocolate Mousse with Lavender-Mascarpone Whipped Cream

Chocolate mousse is a classic. I’ve tried nearly every variation, but my benchmark is still Julia Child’s traditional version, which hits that perfect intersection of flavor and texture. A good mousse is worth the effort, but it does require a fair amount of work. Bain Maries, ice baths, carefully melting the chocolate, vigorously whipping the egg yolks, carefully incorporating the egg whites — this isn’t a quick weeknight dessert. I found that you can cut out nearly all the effort by swapping your whisk for a blender. The Wolf Gourmet high performance blender does all the work melting, mixing, and aerating… Read more

Baked Orange Juice Donuts with Sucaritos Sprinkle | Wolf Gourmet

¡Hola! Jalapeño’s Baked Orange Juice Donuts with Sucaritos Sprinkle

I’ve fallen in love with an oven. It was innocent enough at first. I first fell for its looks, sleek and sexy on my countertop, but then I got to know it from the inside out and I’m sure the big, bulky oven I used to know will be relegated to Thanksgiving use only. The Wolf Gourmet countertop oven can do anything my standard oven can do: roast a chicken, broil a piece of fish, bake a pan of brownies (and I mean a full-sized pan, not just some miniature 8×8 situation) but it does it faster and more evenly… Read more

Wolf Gourmet potato soup

Cold Weather Cuisine: Rustic Potato Soup

If you have ever lived along the Great Lakes, you know the weather forecasts often call for over a foot of snow and temperatures hovering near zero for weeks at a time. Warm and comforting meals are always on the menu during these cold months, which seem to last from October to April. There was a popular mom-and-pop restaurant where I lived (it is now, sadly, closed) which served a simple lunch of soup and bread on weekdays and it was packed in the winter. Fresh-from-the oven loaves of Italian bread were there for you to slice, and soups ranged… Read more

Convenient and satisfying, these little bars can deliver breakfast during the morning commute, get us through a noon meeting, or tide us over until dinner.

If you find yourself turning over every box and analyzing the nutritional benefits of bar A versus B and questioning some of… Read more
