The skinny on basic pie dough techniques.
A Cranberry Extravanganza for Thanksgiving. For a limited time, Three (!) Fabulous recipes including Sweet Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread, Thanksgiving’s Best Cranberry Cream Scones and a BB special, Canned Cranberry Bundt Cake (you know - you have leftover sauce or bought a can too many - here's the perfect cake to take care of business). Cut, paste, print out and bake.....
Golden egg bread, coconut, golden raisins, cream and tart cherry sauce in a heart-warming autumn dessert, diner style with cornucopia flair.
Pecan or pumpkin biscuits would also be good here or thrown in a handful of toasted chopped pecans but plain, buttery baking biscuits in this pumpkin pie custard setting are divine.
Not a cookie, not biscotti but bigger and better than both. Huge wedges of biscotti ‘cake’, coated on one side with a slick of white or dark chocolate, make for unbelievable wow appeal. I saw these at a local café and thought, ‘hey, I can do that’. So can you.
This recipe is now in A Passion for Baking, Marcy Goldman, Oxmoor House, 2007. www.OxmoorHouse.com or www.amazon.com.
Bakeries sell huge honey cakes that are cut in mammoth slabs. Sometimes, they are baking in industrial baking pans, their sides lined with greased brown baker’s paper. I like the look and generous cuts that result. Here is a home-style version that features the great taste of home-made with the wonderful, commercial look of a real bakery-style honey cake. It lasts up to a week just covered or 2-3 months, frozen. Just make sure you prepare the pan with its parchment paper ‘cake girdle’. This cake will stop even a great grandma in her tracks. Wow appeal galore. This is a totally awesome cake that is the holiday 'memory' maker but simply the best spice cake ever.
How come you are so slim ? is what most pastry chefs want to hear. How I manage that is based on another one of my own creations (and it's not a cookie), the most sane diet I know and the only one that works!
Fried hotdogs? So good you’ll not want to share the technique. Score one of those super-sized kosher dogs. Deep fry (if you are baking French Fries – pop a couple of these in the oil). The dogs flare up and bulk in size – offering a crisp exterior and hot, juicy interior. Ballpark mustard, a fresh poppy seed roll and you’ve got game. A super 4th of July snack.
I like chamomile tea but it sometimes tastes like someone brewed wildflowers (which is essentially what chamomile is) and haystacks (which it isn’t). It can taste smooth and gentle or a bit gamey, depending on the brew. But if you add cinnamon and apples, you have a soother with style and autumn flair. It is almost…..celestial.

Black tea, touched up with minced Skor or Heath Bars. Mmmmmm.
