Ginger Molasses Cookies

Back when I had my little cookie business edith + ethel, ginger molasses cookies was on the menu. I must say, they’re one of my favorites. I would make tons of ginger molasses cookies for gift boxes during the holidays.  That was back when I was a stay at home mom, and had slightly more…

Ginger Pull-Apart Bread with Lemon Glaze

I love it when a recipe comes together out of nowhere. Like this ginger pull-apart bread with lemon glaze. My breakfast options were limited this weekend. I didn’t have milk, so no pancakes or waffles. I ran out of bread, so no bacon and toast with eggs. And no bacon, which left me with eggs…

Ginger Cake with Lemon Glaze

A few years ago I bought The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook. I fell in love with the pancake cake on the cover which I made, but put the book promptly on the shelf and let it collect dust. With everything so readily available at my fingertips whether it’s on my phone, iPad or laptop,…

Molasses Gingerbread Cake

A friend of mine posted this recipe on my Facebook page a few weeks ago.  We ended up having an hour long phone conversation about it, mostly commenting on how intrigued and apprehensive we both were about trying the recipe.  The original recipe calls for an unsulphured blackstrap molasses and espresso powder.  This was going…

Butternut Squash Pie

I have a friend who loves pies. I think if he could eat one pie a day and never gain weight, he would be a happy man. He’s also nominated me to be his chief pie maker, which is a bit of an honor and a curse. The pressure is always on for me to…

Pumpkin Scones

It’s Thanksgiving week, and I though nothing would be better than starting it off with pumpkin scones. The pumpkin scones from Starbuck’s, is Miles’ favorite, but I’m hoping he might like my homemade ones a little better! The original recipe called for shredding the butter with a box grater, but I didn’t have one (on…

Ginger-Pear Galette

My co-worker and her fiancé went to dinner in Chinatown the other evening.  Every time they dine at this particular restaurant, the owner gives them a couple of boxes of Asian pears.  It seems that the owner is a family friend of the fiancé.  My co-worker brought them to the office to share, so I…

Rhubarb Buckle

  We’re getting towards the end of rhubarb season, but luckily I was able to buy a few stalks before it left our stores.  I’ve never had a love affair with rhubarb, but I have a few friends who love it and I enjoy making things for them.  For the past couple of months I’ve…

Gingerbread Muffins with Lemon Glaze

Sleepover post: part two.  My son’s friend stayed over all day (which was fine), but once again I only bought groceries for one breakfast, not two.  Sometimes I think I still behave as if I’m still in NYC going to the bodega everyday.  Well this time, I wasn’t going to run out to the store. …

Ginger Cake with Lemon Glaze

I recently purchased The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert Cookbook. I really bought it for the cake on the cover, but my eyes rested on the Double Ginger Cake recipe. I haven’t had ginger bread in a long time, and I’ve never made a ginger cake in a bundt pan, so I decided to try it. It’s…

Ice Cream Bread Part 2

I found the idea of baking ice cream mixed with flour so interesting, that I had to try it again.  This time I was going to put a little more thought into the flavor.  I decided on a ginger ice cream and added crystalized ginger, lemon zest, and a little lemon juice.  I also made…
