Pesto Presto

What a hokey post title. Anyhoo. More garlic scapes from my CSA this week, and some left over from last week – what better to do than to make pesto! I took a look at some recipes and really just sort of winged it a bit. Those garlic scapes sure do have a bite to … Continue reading

TWD: Dressy Chocolate Loaf Cake

My first thought as I began to make this week’s TWD recipe was, “Thank heavens for air conditioning!” The DC area has had a string of 90+ degree days with humidity off the charts – weather in my book that does not necessarily scream for baking, much less baking something rich and chocolate.

Garlic Scapes!

I suppose I could have lumped this in with my previous post about the goodies in my CSA basket this week, as the focus of this came as part of that bundle of deliciousness…but that dawned on me a bit late. When we think of garlic in what is probably its most traditional form, it … Continue reading

TWD: Raisin Swirl Bread

Vodka Infusions!

This weekend, my roommate is hosting a fundraiser cocktail party for a fantastic cause – for the second year in a row, she is going to bike nearly 200 miles over two days raising money for the Jimmy Fund, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. There is a $4500 minimum donation required to participate, and last … Continue reading

TWD: Tender Shortcakes

Yikes, when I logged in to post this weeks TWD recipe, I realized just how long it had been since I posted last. GASP. It’s not that I haven’t been baking/cooking because I have! I may be, um, just a little backed up in the blogging department. I’m back on it now though, thanks too … Continue reading
