French Almond Paste Cake
I'm not sure if this is true for everybody, but my cake cravings tend to increase dramatically during the winter. It's like all I want are warm mugs filled with tea and a slice of something sweet and simple. I'm not talking about elaborate layer cakes with ...

Lemon Curd Cupcakes + Chocolate Frosting
I'm not sure why the combination of lemon + chocolate doesn't get as much attention as some other chocolate marriages. It's one that I fell in love with a few years ago when reading a novel called The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake . Not that you asked, b...

Easy Vanilla Bean-Orange Angel Food Cake
What do you say we break a few rules together? Angel food cake is usually one of those fussy cakes I prefer to completely avoid. Anything that requires special pans and beating and sifting or other extra steps beyond "dump ingredients into a bowl" is just u...

How to Make Labneh
Because I'm Puerto Rican, people often assume that Latin food is my favorite. It's definitely very high up there, and I do tend to cook with those kinds of flavors and ingredients often, but the truth is that given the choice, I'm more likely to pick Middle...

The Best Paleo Blueberry Muffins
My friend Monica and her husband were visiting NYC last weekend, so we planned to have them over for a relaxed brunch at home before they left town. Since her husband can't eat gluten, I decided to use the opportunity to play around with some gluten-free an...

Flourless Pistachio Oatmeal Muffins (Gluten-Free)
After a few weeks of heavy recipe testing for a client of mine, I ran out of all-purpose flour and sugar earlier this month. The large glass jars that usually sit on my counter have been empty for weeks, begging to be refilled, but for some reason, I've gon...
