Frosted Brownies
One of my favorite smells is something chocolate baking in the oven. It fills the house with such a sweet aroma and then of course there is the delicious treat that follows. As a major chocoholic I think brownies make the perfect way to feed my addiction be...

(Toasted) Fresh Mint Marshmallows
I love spring - the new season brings a fresh batch of ingredients to cook or bake with - like mint. While the weather is beginning to warm up there are still moments when there is a chill in the air. So I whipped up some fresh mint marshmallows to have on ...

Fresh Squeezed Grapefruit Soda
I have never been much of a soda drinker. I prefer my calories come from cake and cookies, but every now and then drinking something other than water (or wine) is a nice change. When my late husband, Chris, and I lived in Palo Alto we had a sailboat, Amber ...

Toasted Coconut Cream Pie
March 14th is Pi Day. It is just around the corner. What better way to share the love than to make a pie? With winter coming to a close and thoughts of spring break in warm locales swirling in our heads a tropical flavor seems the right way to celebrate. Lo...

Parmesan Seed Crisps
I love cheese!  I do not discriminate I love all kinds of cheese from a nice sharp cheddar to a rich triple crème brie to a pungent Roquefort.  I have almost never met a cheese I didn't like.  When you combine a good Parmesan and some crunchy seeds and toas...

Baby Blue Oven Pancake
Cooking for one is a bit of an adjustment when you are used to cooking for a family.  You have to down-size everything from the recipe to the pan.  But individual servings can be fun, too.  Addison and Maddie love this full-size Oven-Baked Apple Pancake  in...

Holding On
I did not plan to be silent for so long.  It just happened as I have been savoring the last moments of the cherished life I have known for so many years.   Addison graduated from college with his Masters of Architecture and is now working in another city.  ...

Buttermilk Chocolate Cake
I have been writing Kitchen and Cake for a while now and I realized I have yet to include a chocolate cake.  I don't know how that happened, but it is time to remedy it.  I have made countless chocolate cakes but one of my favorites is an old-fashioned vari...

Strawberry Pie with Orange-Almond Crust and Vanilla Bean-Scented Whipped Cream in Honor of Pi Day
Pi Day is especially significant this year since the first five digits are 3.1415 and if you celebrate it at exactly 9:26:53 you have the first ten.  Pretty impressive.  It also happens to be Albert Einstein's birthday, so Pi Day and E=mc2 rule the day.  Wh...
