Recipe: Spaghetti with Mascarpone, Meyer Lemon, Spinach, and Hazelnuts
We had two encounters with mascarpone cheese in pasta recently. One was seeing this tagliatelle with spinach, mascarpone, and Parmesan over on Jamie Oliver’s website; the other was catching the tail end of a British cooking show where the host was making mascarpone-lemon spaghetti. (We’re sensing an English theme.) This is our version, which borrows a bit from both but has the bright flavor of Meyer lemon plus toasted hazelnuts, which turned out to be the best ingredient of all.

Recipe: Make-Ahead Pumpkin French Toast Casserole
This is how you do French toast during prime pumpkin season (aka right now!). It’s a sweet, seasonal breakfast casserole for a crowd and powerful enough to win over the most ardent pumpkin spice critic. Thick cubes of buttery brioche are soaked overnight and infused with rich custard packed with warm spices and a double dose of pumpkin. Then it’s dotted with a crunchy brown sugar and pecan streusel that takes it over the top. Amazing, right?

Recipe: Canadian-Syrian Thanksgiving Stuffing
The addition of bharat makes this a deliciously smoky-yet-sweet stuffing any turkey would love to be next to.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Pumpkin French Toast Casserole
Ever since I met this sweet slow cooker breakfast casserole, I’ve been hosting weekend brunch as often as possible. It’s a treat to be sure, loaded with tender cubes of custard-soaked brioche tinged with the warm scent of pumpkin spice and topped with a nutty brown sugar streusel. You’ll want to keep this one in rotation all year long. French toast casseroles are my easy go-to solution for serving this breakfast favorite to a crowd.

Recipe: Lemony Brussels Sprout Gratin
Potluck dinners tend to resemble mini Thanksgivings most of the time — and I’m most definitely not saying that’s a bad thing. But with all the tried-and-true vegetable side dishes and casseroles that often show up at the table, it’s fun to tweak the traditions a little bit and stand out from the pack. A double dose of lemon in this veggie-loaded gratin keeps the mood light — even with the usual suspects of cream and cheese in every comforting spoonful.

Recipe: Creamy Cabbage Gratin with Bacon and Mushrooms
This is what happens when an old-fashioned country recipe called scalloped cabbage gets dolled up and heads into town for a dinner party. It elevates cabbage into elegance with a creamy Gruyère sauce and a tumble of sautéed mushrooms. The Gruyère and bacon add flavor, of course, but cabbage still reigns in this dish. Should you prefer to keep this meatless, all is not lost — simply omit the bacon and replace the bacon fat in the béchamel sauce with butter.

Recipe: Key Lime Smoothie Bowls
One of my favorite desserts is key lime pie because I love custard-y pies with a graham cracker crust. Great for dessert, yes, but probably not the best idea for breakfast. That’s where this easy smoothie-yogurt bowl hybrid comes in. You get all the delicious flavors of key lime pie, but with more breakfast-friendly ingredients instead. The texture is decidedly more yogurt than smoothie, but the toppings are definitely inspired by the smoothie bowl trend.

Recipe: Banana Bread Smoothie
No matter how much you love turkey, mashed potatoes, and the seemingly endless stream of pies that come with the holiday season, there are times your body craves a break from the indulgence in favor of something truly nourishing. Smoothies to the rescue. Whether it’s the morning after Thanksgiving or any other day of the week, this smoothie full of bananas, dates, and cashews is a welcome respite from rich holiday fare.

Recipe: Raspberry Ginger Power Smoothies
I know looks aren’t everything, but I think we can all agree that this fruit smoothie is a complete stunner. It blends up into the prettiest pink hue I’ve ever seen, falling somewhere between millennial pink and deep mauve. But good looks aren’t the only thing it has going for it — each sip tastes just as delicious and refreshing.
Jan 29, 2020
Recipe: Brûléed Fruit with Mascarpone Yogurt Sauce
I’m always looking for new ways to eat fruit — especially for dessert. Taking a page from the classic French dessert crème brûlée, juicy chunks of fruit are broiled with brown sugar until caramelized on top, and then topped with a creamy mascarpone-yogurt sauce and buttery macadamia nuts. I like a mix of citrus and tropical foods since they hold up well to the broiling process. Cut the citrus into pretty wheels, then mix in long spears of mango and pineapple.

Recipe: Padma Lakshmi’s Rice Pudding
There’s no denying that rice pudding is at the top of the list when it comes to comforting desserts. This classic Indian version, called kheer, is spiced with cardamom and flecked with golden raisins and pistachios, and is sure to become a new favorite. This recipe comes courtesy of Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi; it’s one of her favorite things to make for Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights.
Jan 22, 2020
Recipe: One-Pot Smoked Almond and Herb Couscous
This side dish is so smoky and fragrant, you may find yourself pushing aside the main course so that you can focus your attention on it. Smoked paprika not only lends its intense flavor to the couscous, but it also adds color, creating the most beautiful golden hue. Toasted sliced almonds add textural crunch to the dish (something that is all too often missing in plain ol’ couscous), and a slew of chopped fresh parsley brings its pop of green freshness to the equation.

Recipe: Pear Tart with Walnut Crust
Fall is tart time for me, and I brought a few of my favorite autumn flavors to this dessert offering. It’s made with a rich walnutty tart crust, filled with creamy golden frangipane and topped with tender slices of spiced poached pears. And it holds a little gift for those of us baking for a diverse group: it just happens to be gluten-free. Don’t you love desserts that do it all? This tart has an element that may be unfamiliar: frangipane. What is it?

Recipe: Chunky Monkey Cookies
Chocolate chunks, chopped walnuts, and banana chips — once I got the idea in my head to make a cookie version of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream, I couldn’t stop obsessing. With all the ingredients in my cupboard, why prolong the inevitable? This cookie is a riff on my Favorite Cookie Ever, i.e., chocolate chip cookies, slightly modified from the back-of-the-bag version.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Spiced Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
For as long as I can remember, peanut butter blossoms have been a given at my family’s annual cookie swap. Showered with a light layer of crunchy sugar and filled with a signature chocolate kiss at the center, I could always count on them to be nestled amongst all the Christmas cookie classics. This year I’m bringing a spiced twist to the spread. It’s everything you’d expect from peanut butter kiss cookies, with a subtle hint of warm cinnamon.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
While I don’t follow a Paleo diet, I do believe in filling my life with delicious, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies as often as possible. These cookies are soft and chewy, with just a touch of firmness around the edges, and have a very generous helping of melty chocolate bits. Basically they’re everything you’d want from a classic chocolate chip cookie. And if they happen to skip the grains, refined sugar, and dairy, well that is just fine by me.

Recipe: Zereshk Polow (Persian Barberry Rice)
Even more than the turkey, certain sides take center stage at the Thanksgiving table: sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and most of all, stuffing. Whether it comes out of a box, or from lovingly saved scraps of homemade bread, it’s the stuffing that feels most quintessentially American. It’s the perfect accompaniment for our most beloved national holiday. Unless, of course, you don’t like stuffing.

Today’s stop: Malaysia. We asked Ping Coombes, author of an essential Malaysian cookbook, for her best introduction to Malaysian soups.

Recipe: Banana Nut Muffins
Banana nut muffins are one of the greatest pleasures of the breakfast table, and I’ll have strong words with anyone who says otherwise. They walk that fine line between wholesome breakfast and (let’s be honest) cake, and they walk it so very well. These particular banana nut muffins are my favorite. They are extra moist and tender — you can slice one in half, slather it with butter, and take a healthy bite, all without fear that your breakfast will disintegrate into crumbs.

Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake Breakfast Bars
There’s a time and a place for a granola bar or energy bar, and then there’s an altogether different time for a decadent, crumbly, fruit-filled bar with a silky layer of cream cheese. These bars are for that occasion — and for all the brunches and spring parties that may be on your calendar in the coming months. Or for no occasion at all, other than breaking up the inevitable breakfast rut that strikes us all at some point.

Recipe: One-Bowl Oat Muffins with Figs and Hazelnuts
This is a delicate, flavor-packed, nutrient-rich muffin that takes advantage of the grinding power of the food processor, but doesn’t take away from the tender crumb of a muffin. With chunks of figs, hazelnuts, and oats, this muffin passes for breakfast, but nothing beats it warm out of the oven with a pat of butter.

Recipe: Ina Garten’s Triple Chocolate Loaf Cake
The fact that Ina Garten managed to create a triple chocolate loaf cake that’s wonderfully light and tender — better suited for afternoon tea or coffee than as a decadent dessert — is a true gift. With its crackly top and walnut- and chocolate-studded crumb, it satisfies my daily hankering for a chocolate treat without leaving me with a stomachache (if I don’t go back for a second slice, that is).

Recipe: Honey Apple Mini Bundt Cakelets
Today we’re gonna party like it’s 5775. That’s right folks, the lunar new year is right around the corner, and we’re ringing in Rosh Hashanah with an extra special dessert! These honey apple cakelets are great for any fall occasion, really, but they also happen to contain symbolic ingredients for a good and sweet Jewish New Year. On Rosh Hashanah, it is customary to eat a snack of apples dipped into honey.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Gingerbread Bundt Cake
Gingerbread spices have ancient historical roots and feature a complex interweaving of tastes that is second to none when it comes to holiday baking. This cake — full of warm-yet-citrusy coriander; heady notes from the allspice, clove, and cinnamon; and depth of sweetness from molasses — delivers all the cozy, familiar tastes of the season with a bit of heat and pizzazz thrown in the mix. The result is an intoxicatingly fragrant cake with a delicate but still tight crumb.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Itty Bitty Brownie Bites
Itty bitty means you can eat more than a few of these brownie bites and no one will take a second glance. That’s exactly the kind of treat we like to feature on our cookie plates and holiday dessert spreads. These are especially awesome because they also happen to be gluten-free, thanks to the exclusive use of almond flour. Almond flour makes treats extra fudgy and moist, like your favorite flourless cake, but in perfect two-bite portions.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Buckeye Brownie Cookies
A cookie, a brownie, and a buckeye all in one — this is the perfect treat for chocolate-lovers who want to have it all. They’re everything you love about chocolate-coated peanut butter buckeyes, rich, chewy brownies, and crispy-edged, soft-baked cookies — all mashed up into the same package. Starting with a box of brownie mix makes them almost too easy to pull off.

How To Make Almond Croissants (the Easy Way)
I know that chocolate croissants (or, more correctly, pain au chocolat) are the stars of most pastry cases. But personally, if I’m going to eat a pastry for breakfast, it’s going to be the chocolatine‘s less glam cousin, the almond croissant. I love the nutty, sweet filling, and that dusting of powdered sugar on top. But here’s the thing: You don’t need to go to the pastry shop to get an almond croissant. Do you know how easy they are to make at home?

Recipe: Pear and Cinnamon Coffee Cake
Remember that classic coffee cake you grew up eating — the kind with the buttery cake and sugared crumb topping you loved so much? Well, we’re taking it just a bit further this season. This version, topped with spiced pecans and brown sugar crumbs, also gets a ripple of pear and cinnamon streusel through its center. Think of it as the snacking cake to take you through crisp fall mornings and beyond.
Jan 21, 2020
Recipe: Marbled Coffee Cake with Nutty Crumb Streusel
This is a darn fine coffee cake, with a sweet vanilla cake, generous streusel and nuts throughout, and a cinnamon-vanilla aroma that will make your house smell better than a bakery. Oh, and the cake part still only requires one bowl, thanks to our one-bowl vanilla cake. That first cup of coffee is starting to look even better. Okay, yes, there is a cake to contend with here, but it’s an easy one-bowl ditty that bakes up beautifully no matter what you bake it in.

Recipe: Almond-Fig Breakfast Quick Bread
Everyone has their comfort zone in the kitchen. Maybe you make a mean meatloaf or the very best chocolate chip cookies. Maybe your spaghetti sauce has garnered a reputation around your neighborhood. For me, quick breads, muffins, and scones are my jam because they come together quickly, and I can experiment with ways to make them a bit healthier by incorporating some whole grains and much less sugar than is often called for.

What’s the Difference Between Marzipan and Almond Paste?
I remember wandering through department stores and Christmas markets in Western Europe and marveling at the displays of marzipan goodies: amazingly realistic-looking little fruits or tiny animals, all neatly lined up in the windows. I loved how they cheerily stood out against the gloomy weather outside. Then I started baking and seeing recipes calling for almond paste and got a little confused. If marzipan is a paste made out of almonds, are they just the same thing?
