Impossibly creamy cheesecake with chocolate chip cookie crust and dulce de leche swirls. Let me start by saying this: my husband and I are bonafide cheesecake snobs. We've eaten the best of the best in NYC (and no, it is not Junior's), and tear down every which way that a cheesecake falls flat or doesn't make the cut. So believe me when I claim this dulce de leche cheesecake to be damn near perfect. I...
Easy breakfast tacos with smoked salmon, cream cheese, red onion, and chives are a brunch game changer. Why Easy Breakfast Tacos Are Your New Secret Weapon Hi, hello, welcome! It's me again, just wanting to give a shout out to brunch. I've always considered myself more of a dinner party kinda host than someone who invites people over for breakfast, but I find myself time and again developing recipes for brunch. Every time people come...
Creating a bagel board is an art, but it absolutely involves smoked salmon and sable, smoked fish salads, an abundance of cheese, onions, tomatoes, and as many toppings as your heart can dream up! If you didn't already know, hosting brunch is all the rage. The trendiest of the trendy folks adhere to the strict policy of 'go big or go home' and around these parts that translates into one thing: an epic bagel board....
NO BAKE key lime cheesecake parfaits are the absolute quickest, tastiest dessert of summer! Graham cracker crumbs are layered between cool and creamy key lime cheesecake filing. Absolute heaven! Helloooo, grilling season! I realize that's a confusing way to start a post about a dessert that isn't even grilled, but bear with me. Is there anything more summer appropriate than a huge slice of key lime pie on an otherwise unbearably hot day? Luckily, yes. Key lime...
I recently took a brief poll of friends to figure out what food or drinks came to mind when they heard the word "derby." Turns out, not surprisingly, alcohol is on the forefront. Cool. I can work with that. Food Advertising by Enter the mint julep of cookies. Mint chocolate sandwich cookies with bourbon-vanilla cream(!!). The cream alone is worth being the star of the show, but eating spoonfuls of booze-laced filling is...
Stop everything and get yourself to the store because this epic carrot loaf with cream cheese frosting (obvious choice, but necessary) deserves a spot on your table today. Like, right now. I meant to share this recipe while we were in Paris, but somehow it never crossed my mind that carting 3 young kids around a large city for hours on end would leave me utterly exhausted. I was useless and unable to do much more...
In my never ending search to find recipes that truly 'wow,' layered smoked salmon dip currently rests pretty damn high on the list. Food Advertising by To the point where I'm annoyed I didn't come across it sooner. It's comfort food, but for grown ups. I'm in this unique place professionally where I'm both trying to find my style as a recipe developer, while constantly building upon my skills as a photographer. There...
Confession: I cannot build a fire. I suppose it's worth nothing that I've never tried... Perhaps this was a life skill taught after my short-lived stint in Brownies (#girlscoutdropout represent), but alas, I am suffering the repercussions of this poor life choice on the daily. Especially with this overly dramatic bomb cyclone rearing its ugly head on the east coat. The low on Saturday is currently predicted at -8 F. That's without windchill. To keep warm during...
It's been over a week since Thanksgiving. We survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Some of us controlled ourselves, and others were caught red-handed, accused of spending too much money. But it was a gift! And it's for you! Well, for us. Okay, it's for me... You might think that now is the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy holiday music, but beware, the holiday season waits for no one and...
