January 10, 2011

During this winter holiday my family has not exactly stayed put in our home, and we traveling chefs have dealt with inferior kitchen equipment and lacking grocery stores that challenged our work, putting us to the ultimate test. I am glad to say that we did succeed, but there’s no place like your home kitchen. […]

From the Recipe Box: Spritz Cookies

December 18, 2010

My grandmother made spritz cookies. While she baked many wonderful treats, I consider this her signature cookie. I think she must have made thousands of them every year.

From the Recipe Box: Classic Shortbread

December 2, 2010

I love shortbread. I love to smell the butter as it bakes in the oven. I love the way it melts in your mouth as you bite into it. I love the fact that I can bake it all in one pan. Now don’t think that I am the Scrooge of cookie baking, but I […]
