Satisfy Your Cookie Cravings

Early this year, we had an entire working lunch completely dominated by discussion about the latest season of Making a Murderer, and a few of us non-Netflix people (yes, they exist) sat there nodding politely because we had no idea what anyone was talking about. So this summer we have remedied our lack of Netflix knowledge, much to our coworkers’ delight, and can now confidently speak about any of the recent seasons as well as the classics. We also learned binge-watching an entire season of a show on Netflix requires snacks, and lots of them. After the giant bowl of… 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

Cardamom Stewed Apples in Vanilla Port | Wolf Gourmet

Cardamom Stewed Apples in Vanilla Port from Nik Sharma

I’m all about decadence when it comes to desserts – and if there’s a way to make a fancy sweet with a minimum of effort, I’m even more excited. Besides being easy, this stewed and stuffed apple dessert has a lot going for it. For one, the apples are sweet enough so you don’t need to add extra sugar; the apples are infused with cardamom and the wine with a vanilla bean. You could use any of the sweeter apples that are suitable for baking because they’ll hold their texture well when stewed. My personal favorite is Golden Delicious because… Read more

eggnog

Blended Eggnog Cocktail

Eggnog has been a popular cocktail since English settlers came to America. The bevy of eggs, dairy cows, and liquor made it an easy libation for the colonists to prepare. The drink has endured through the last few centuries, and continues to be on many holiday cocktail menus. Making your own eggnog is quite simple and the rich, foamy texture is a vast improvement over anything you can buy at the store. The Wolf Gourmet blender whips cream in less than 30 seconds and the rest of the ingredients come together in a few additional seconds. Using freshly grated nutmeg… Read more

Welcome Autumn with Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares

Autumn has officially arrived, and there’s a bit of a chill in the morning air. A new season means a new set of favorite foods. Comforting, hearty stews and soups, apples, cinnamon, and of course, pumpkin, all make reappearances after months of zucchini, tomatoes, and salads.

It’s used in smoothies, soups, and many baked goods. Today we came up with something a little different, pumpkin cheesecake squares. A cream cheese topping swirled throughout enriches… Read more

Chocolate Chip Cookies

How to Make the Absolute Best Chocolate Chip Cookies: Baking with (or without) Convection

Chocolate chip cookies come in many forms. Soft and chewy or golden brown and crisp … everyone has a favorite. Our recipe can be baked in the Wolf Gourmet oven with or without convection to yield different results, depending on your preference. Before we get started making cookies, let’s review.
