For my choir’s winter concert, we had to bring baked goods for our audience to enjoy during intermission and after the concert. Each of us was tasked with bringing a dozen cookies. For those who didn’t have time to make something to bring and didn’t want to just go out and buy something from the

Unpopular as the opinion may be, I’ve been a fan of organ meats since I was a little kid. My grandparents used to eat them on the regular, and I spent a lot of time with them. So, thanks to Nana and Poppa, I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for something most Americans

Today’s cookies are a trial for a classic Italian cookie cake that I will be making later this month for our choir’s Christmas concert. These were made as a Thanksgiving dessert designed for everyone to enjoy, including my father-in-law who isn’t much a fan of sweets. Instead of making a mince pie or something else

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

I’ve been going through the Harry Potter book series lately, and, on several occasions, pasties are mentioned. I had no idea what a pasty was, so I looked it up one day, after hearing about pumpkin pasties for the second or third time. They’re hand pies, which I had heard of before, but which I had

I know I have several chili recipes, but chili is one of those foods that can be made and remade hundreds of times and still have room for experimentation. Personally, I’m on a mission to find the chili recipe to end all chili recipes. This one turns up the heat with three different hot sauces,

Back to the old books we go, this time for a homemade bread recipe called “water bread.” It gets its name from the fact that it’s made with — you guessed it — water. If you’re easily amused like I am, this recipe is also a great opportunity for a time-lapse video or photo set

Limoncello is an Italian liqueur made with lemon peels, alcohol, sugar, and patience. If you want to put your leftover naked lemons to use, make a double batch of this recipe and then use the fruit and any leftover alcohol to make hard lemonade (or regular lemonade)! This is a set-it-and-forget-it recipe with a quick prep
