pumpkin and cream cheese muffins with struesel

I’m posting again (two days in a row!) because I received a lovely new cookbook from Fanny Lam of Oh Sweet Day, and these pumpkin and cream cheese muffins spoke to me immediately from amongst the pages. Then after making them and inhaling most of them (and sharing with my neighbors who also devoured them) I decided you might just want this recipe as well for your upcoming…

My niece was born a month ago today, and I brought this Cinnamon Streusel Swirl Cake over to my sister and brother-in-law (along with cookies, of course) to celebrate. The best thing about this cake is it gets better the longer it sits – I enjoyed it on days 2 and 3 much more than the first day. I haven’t tried adding fruit along with the streusel yet,…

Peach Crumble Pie

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Years ago, after completing college and moving back in with my parents for a spell, I would pick my Grandma up once a week and take her out shopping. She was close to 90 and could no longer drive, but was always eager to get out of the house and buy her own groceries and necessities. One of her favorite haunts was a neighborhood department store that she…

raspberry streusel tart

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

I was asked to host a dinner party. The menu was to be from America’s Test Kitchen’s latest book, The Menu Cookbook [There is a post about the whole evening here, on The Feed, if you’re interested]. It was a lovely time, filled with good food and wine, family and friends. This little pretty, pictured above was dessert. And it was delicious. The raspberries were oh so tart,…
