Salted Caramel Cashew Macarons
Entertaining these days presents so many opportunities to poison your guests. We really do live in exciting times! Far be it from  me  to belittle anyone else's dietary issues. With my pork/shellfish/alcohol refusal and mild lactose intolerance, you'd be ha...

Cookie Dough Party Cake
My family has long since lost interest in my baking. Cupcakes again? Whatever... Cake pops? Meh... Luckily, my neighbors' kids are not yet immune to my charms. A couple of times a week, we hear a knock at the back door. It's my little buddy from across the ...

Chanukah Macarons
Whose idea was it to have an eight-day holiday centered around greasy foods? I already feel ill. And my Instagram feed is starting to fill up with kale soups from fellow members of the tribe who are ready to go on a juice cleanse just four days into this ho...

Raspberry Cream Cake
Berries with everything! Time for local food! Okay, maybe not quite yet. This photo is in my raspberry patch, but obviously those are not my berries. Soon I'll have tons of very local fruit. But right now all I have is a yard full of glorious potential. Che...

Endive Avocado Salad with Pomegranate
I feel like a recipe for salad is kind of cheating. Because the composition of my salads is governed by two basic principles: 1) The Law of Using Things Up Before They Grow (Too Much) Mold, and 2) The Unified Theory of Salad Equilibrium. The first is obviou...

Earl Grey Macarons with Milk Chocolate Filling
My macarons were not lovely today. I blame those weirdos I live with. Lots of kids run their mouths during the day. My people don't even sleep in silence. Someone's always protesting the essential unfairness of the universe. Which is why it was unsurprising...
