I have a bottle of marsala hanging around in my kitchen from when I made wine cakes for Christmas. I know it’s a great sherry substitute when cooking, but despite that, I practically never use it. I always reach for my vermouth instead (which I put in practically everything). I’m going to be making a

It’s summertime again, and that means my friend’s mom has currant bushes that are overflowing with fruit. This year, she taught me how to juice them using a pressure cooker, but then I was stuck with far more currant juice than I knew what to do with. I still had jelly from last year, as

This is one of the more complicated recipes I’ve ventured to do. Anyone who’s been following Apartment Eats for a while knows I’m generally a cupcake person. I’ve tried making pies before with varied success, and I’ve never, ever made a full cake. Hubby actually gave me a straight answer for once when I asked

Banana bread is one of my favorite treats. It’s just cakey enough to make my body think I’m giving it a real dessert, but it’s ever so slightly healthier for you. It’s high in fiber and a classic baked good in any American kitchen. In the past, we’ve had banana pumpkin bread, which had a

Beef stew is your classic hearty food. It’s a set-it-and-forget it type of meal that rewards you in the evening with a delicious and filling dinner. There are countless variations on it across the internet and throughout cookbooks. Somehow, until now, I haven’t put up a recipe of my own, though I’ve made it many times

Just like the Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin pasties from last week, this week’s recipe is straight from the pages of another YA book series, The Immortal Descendants. At one point, the main crew enjoys a meal of Moroccan chicken and olives, which I thought sounded pretty good, so I looked up a few recipes, picked and chose from

This summer, I had a craving for something summery, but in a crockpot. I realize that it’s now fall, but when I wrote this, it was late June. I did some serious backlogging for the wedding… So, I’m sorry for holding onto this for so long before I could release it, but on the other hand,
