Tuesdays With Dorie: Applesauce Spice Bars

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

I made these. I did. I took pictures. And then I worked constantly all weekend and all day Monday and didn’t write the post. I’m putting it up now, without photos, and I’ll update as soon as I can. UPDATE: Now, with photos and actual content! This is a funny color; I have no idea […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Caramel Crunch Bars

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

We’re back to cookies this time, but cookies of a different flavor. This week’s recipe, chosen for us by Whitney of What’s Left on the Table?, was for Caramel Crunch Bars — essentially chocolate-chip shortbread with chocolate and toffee bits on top. This was not a big production. I made them fairly late in the […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Floating Islands

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

I believe this is my first Dorie failure. There have been some recipes we haven’t liked as much as others over my past seven months as part of Tuesdays With Dorie, but this is the first time that what I wound up with looked nothing like the lovely photo in the book. The crème anglaise […]

Tuesdays With Dorie: Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

This is the first savory Dorie recipe I’ve made, and I welcomed the break from sugar. (I cannot believe I just typed that.) I made the muffins to accompany a roast chicken; I thought they’d be a nice change from our usual bread or biscuits. They were easy to put together (although I must confess […]

Bicultural Friday Dinner

Friday, October 17th, 2008

I had some lamb cubes in the freezer — grass-fed, organic, local lamb, straight from the farmers market. What to do with lamb cubes? Around here, there’s really only one answer. Irish stew: I started with the recipe from Cook’s Illustrated‘s The New Best Recipe, #1 Son’s bible. We gave it to him after his […]

Fishy Friday

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

This week’s Dorie recipe was a killer nutritionally, and so I went light on dinner. And since I also kept it simple, I can give you recipes! First, I bought some frozen salmon fillets at Trader Joe’s. We don’t eat nearly enough fish, and I keep trying to slip some into the recipe rotation. And […]

Just Like Friday, but on Saturday!

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

#1 Son went to a concert last night with a friend, so we shifted Friday dinner to Saturday. Because one consequence of the concert was that the friend had to take a train at 8 this morning, and I had to deliver him to the station, #1 Son and I hit the farmers market early, […]
