As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have a lot of currants. Possibly too many. I’ve been at a loss for what to do with them, but I decided to get adventurous and figure out how to best bake them while fresh (I’ve got recipes for dried ones, like my Rosewater Currant Cakes but

If you’re a fan of toast or PB&J sandwiches and you’ve never had apple butter before, you’re missing out! It’s like super-concentrated, creamy applesauce. It’s sweet, full of spices, and perfect on toast, rolls, or vanilla ice cream. It’s been a favorite spread of mine since I was a kid, and the best way to

My friend Gauri and I were talking the other day and, as usual, we got on the subject of food. We haven’t been able to see one another in about a year, so we took advantage of technology and had ourselves a little long-distance lunch date via video chat. I happened to have the ingredients

This is one of my favorite simple recipes. My mom used to make this granola for me when I was in high school (and occasionally when I was in college). It’s delicious, quick, and incredibly easy to make. You can also do a lot to personalize it by adding in seeds, nuts, fruits, or anything

Sounds weird, right? That was what I thought when my friend first mentioned it the other day. Blueberry soup is apparently quite common in Sweden, where my friend is from, and she said that it’s often used as a cold remedy, much like how we use chicken soup as a “cure-all” here in America for

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

I love lemon baked goods at any time of year, though my biggest struggle is making baked goods “healthy” (although those guilt-free “fudge” brownies I made are probably the best example to date). I love sweets, but as I’m getting older, they’ve started sticking to me a bit and more and more of my friends

One of my friend-Skylers (the local one) mentioned the idea of banana pumpkin bread to me, and I had to say, I was intrigued. I enjoyed banana bread and I happened to have a surplus of pumpkin puree in the cupboard due to a sale at the local grocery store. 3 for 1. Great deal,

This is another recipe we found in Nana’s stash of recipe cards. According to Poppa, it came from his sister, Dorothy, who used to make it for him all the time and later passed the recipe on to Nana. I added a couple of spices to it to make the dough a little more interesting,
