Devilish Angel Food Cake

Finally, another baking adventure out of my own kitchen. I’ve been a baby the past couple of weeks and baked only at my parents’ house, with the promise of central AC. But Neha was up for an afternoon of revelry, so Cambridge baking it was! Continue reading Devilish Angel Food Cake

Lemon Blueberry Bread Pudding

It is way too hot out. Unbearably so. So hot that I went home for the weekend largely because it would include the ability to sit indoors with central air (and to see my lovely family, of course). Continue reading Lemon Blueberry Bread Pudding

Berries and Cream Roll Cake

This week, SMiLes by Meg was in Philadelphia! Often, new kitchens can be frustrating to bake in (largely because I firmly believe where I keep things are the only places where those things belong), but this weekend’s kitchen was a dream. Continue reading Berries and Cream Roll Cake

Espresso Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I’m a plan-everything-far-in-advance kind of person. Like, if I know I won’t have time to bake, I’ll make two recipes the week before. But sometimes, a whole weekend can work out perfectly with very little planning at all. Continue reading Espresso Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Cherry Pie with Coconut Almond Crumble

When Marj comes to town, it’s pretty much a given that we’re going to bake. So when she offered to pick up cherries at her market in New York, I asked (OK, maybe told) her to bring a recipe to use them in as well. And did she deliver. Continue reading Cherry Pie with Coconut Almond Crumble

Rice Krispie Treats

Happy 3rd of July! Really the superior of the summer holidays, in my opinion. Nothing beats a day at the beach followed by a night of fireworks and bonfires. And, of course, cookout food. Continue reading Rice Krispie Treats

Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti

I’ve been on an uncharacteristically non-chocolate kick with desserts for the past couple of weeks. Something about the beginning of summer makes me think of light and fruity desserts. Which I guess is good if you’d (like me) spent the previous 9 months making heavy and rich desserts. Continue reading Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti

Mini Key Lime Pies

My only complaint about blog-life is that I feel like I can never repeat recipes. When I’m going to bake something new every week, there doesn’t seem to be time. And when I know that my dad’s favorite thing I’ve made is Lemon Meringue Pie, but I need to make something new, it’s kind of frustrating to have to say no. Continue reading Mini Key Lime Pies
