Chinese Scallion Pancakes: The Remake

The other evening, my friend Eternal Optimist and I went to see a movie (Friends with Benefits–surprisingly enjoyable, and I even liked Justin Timberlake in it!). We both love watching the trailers before the film, but what struck us this time was how many of them were actually promoting remakes of […]

Baked Granola “Haystack” Cookies

[A plate of detox-friendly cookies! In the background, the ailing azalea plant my cousin gave me. Any advice on how to keep it alive?]

Fine Cooking’s Strawberries and Cream Layer Cake, ACD-Friendly and Allergen-Free (for Iris’s Birthday)!

As a typical Libra, my baking proclivities tend to vacillate between “Almost-too-simple-to-require-a-recipe” (see LaRaw Bars, Quick Cranberry-Apple Compote, Almond-Crusted Root Vegetable “Fries“) or “So-elaborate-as-to-require-a-week’s-preparation” (see Meaty Spinach Pesto Lasagna, Raw “Linguine” with Bolognese Sauce and Hemp Parmesan, Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce)–we Libras tend to be “All or Nothing” that way.

You’ll also notice that stevia has been […]

Celebration Pear and Cranberry Cornmeal Cake

I hope you’re all having a great long weekend! I am thoroughly enjoying the last vestiges of the summer holiday. (What?? Summer is over? Back to school and sweaters and crinkly leaves on the ground and pelting rain and mud and paw prints all over the carpet and frigid mornings and […]

Sweet Freedom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies–Gluten Free

When my sisters and I were kids, my parents used to play Poker every Saturday evening with their group of friends. They’d play from around 7:00 to 9:00 PM, stop for coffee, snacks, and a gabfest, then continue with the cards for another hour or so before everyone headed home.

The group would […]

Well, before I write anything else, I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who tweeted, emailed, commented or otherwise helped me to live out an adolescent fantasy of appearing on The Ellen Show. I have no idea how many of your messages went out, but I managed close to 200 tweets […]
