I usually make my mom something for Mother’s Day (I’ve come a long way from a pack of hugs & kisses tickets) and this year she requested cake! My mom actually taught me this recipe, and I’ve found a video of us making it together in our archive! Please give this cake a try, it’s so simple. What you need: 2 eggs, plus 1 yolk 3/4 cup sugar 1 cup flour 1/2 sunflower oil 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 tsp Autumn Harvest Blend, or cinnamon dash of dried ginger Zest of one lemon 3 cups very ripe apples Butter & flour to coat baking pan Mixer – hand held or standing 9 inch round cake pan Preheat oven to 350° F Grease the baking pan with butter and a light dusting of flour. This will help to keep the cake from sticking to the pan. Beat the eggs and sugar until foamy with a hand mixer or a standing mixer with a paddle attachment.

Crumble is an effortless dessert that looks like it takes a lot of effort. I won’t tell if you don’t! Use whatever spices you like in the filling. Cardamom is amazing with both apple and rhubarb, so give it a try if you have it.
This may seem like an odd combo, but it’s sophisticated and delicious! I had this one spring day with my friend Marcia…and it’s stuck with me ever since. I will be making this for our Sunday brunch this week!
I make pesto out of a lot of things…and today we are using kale raab and arugula!
I have a fond memory hanging out in KoreaTown with my girlfriends eating Korean-style fried chicken and singing karaoke. This recipe is for them. I’m using tofu in this recipe but you can easily swap in chicken or other proteins. The sauce is amazing and the recipe makes more than you will need.
I hope you have pickled some beets in the past few weeks! Here’s a recipe to use them. Don’t worry if you haven’t you can have all roasted beets for this recipe, too.
This savory mushroom tart is an ode to my father and his canned mushrooms. As a child I hated mushrooms because he always had a can of them and put them on everything! It wasn’t until I was an adult and had mushrooms sauteed in butter and herbs that my mind was blown. This is super easy to make, and great for a crowd.
I love brunch…at home. I would much rather be in my jammies dancing in the kitchen with Gabriel than go out to have someone make me french toast. This is the perfect dish to make with loved ones and enjoy a lazy morning eating.
I have a fond memory of eating carbonara in Little Italy with my Mom and Aunt when I was a young girl. The sun was shining and all the waiters were dressed in bow ties and were fawning over us ladies. It was a magical lunch we still reminisce about and sadly we could never find the restaurant again! It was as if we had enjoyed that meal in a time warp or something! So here’s a recipe to help you make your own special memory!
This is a great dish to quickly throw together for lunch or a last minute “What do we have in the fridge” kind of dinner. You can use any grain and any combo of veggies!
