Peaches and Cream Pavlovas

I’m so behind on recipes. Summer is officially over and peaches are slowly leaving grocery stores shelves, and yet here we are with… Peaches and Cream Pavlovas! But who says pavlovas are strictly a summer recipe? If you can’t find peaches, there’s always berries and […]

cornmeal-blueberry pancakes

Cornmeal-Blueberry Pancakes

The New York Times prefaces this recipe by saying, “pancakes are so easy to make that they encourage experimentation”.  I usually stick to my true and tested buttermilk pancakes, but these cornmeal-blueberry pancakes made wonder, how the heck didn’t I think of that before?? I love cornmeal; […]

Strawberry Peach Cobbler

I make peach cobbler every summer and for years this Bon Appetit recipe has been my go-to. This year I thought I’d try a different variation, and this one is adapted from Dorie Greenspan’s Everyday Dorie. I find drop-biscuit cobblers perfect for summer, but I’m not gonna lie; I’m […]

B.L.A.T. Sandwich

This B.L.A.T. sandwich is so simple, but as a big sandwich fan I feel the need to share. It basically takes your classic BLT up a notch. Add a layer of avocado and a layer of sriracha mayo, and you’ll be surprised by how flavorful […]

Classic French Crêpes

These pancake’s French counterpart are so delicate and delicious. Classic French Crêpes are elegant and thin, because they don’t have any leavening agents, which also means they’re not as fluffy. But they’re folded and rolled with a plethora of fillings, so they can be just […]

croissant with dulce de leche ganache

Croissant with Dulce de Leche Ganache

This lovely little dessert/snack is the easiest thing to put together. Think of it as churros, but easier, because we’re not making anything from scratch, we’re cheating! Instead of making your own croissants and turning this into a days-long dessert, just use store bought.  For […]


Sparkling Ginger Lemonade

These balmy days of summer have me craving something sparkling and refreshing at all times. There’s nothing like reaching for a cold citrusy beverage on a hot day, when you’re severely dehydrated and your body’s need for liquid seems to be endless. The great thing […]

Peach and Raspberry Salad

Inspired by an Ottolenghi recipe (his recipes are always a hit, see here and here),  this very summery salad has all the elements of a perfect salad: it’s citrusy, sweet, salty, it has different textures, and it’s so pretty!  I love adding fruits to salads and initially I […]

Miso Chocolate Chip Cookies

These miso chocolate chip cookies are delightful. I love a salty-sweet combo (like pineapple on pizza. yes, I like pineapple on pizza!!), and the miso here adds a lovely and subtle salty, earthy taste to the cookies.  This recipe is a typical chocolate chip cookie […]

Cornbread Loaf

I love the simplicity of cornbread. It’s mostly basic ingredients and a basic preparation, and yet it can be a side to a chili on a cold winter night or a bright dessert on a hot summer day. We all have a trusted family recipe and […]
