Nostalgia for the Whatchamacallit Candy Bar

April 16, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

In terms of candy bars, it is hard to beat the Whatchamacallit. While the name of the bar is either genius or grating depending on your worldview, the bar itself is nearly a perfect execution of peanut/caramel/chocolate/crisp. You can’t argue that. Large parts of my life were fueled entirely by M&M’s (preferably the plain kind) […]

Spring Baking Book Bonanza

March 3, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

This fall was an embarrassment of baking riches. So many big, beautiful and amazing baking books were published and I couldn’t help myself. I had to have them ALL! My cookbook shelves were already heaving prior to Fall 2014 and now they are quite literally bulging, popping, and groaning under so much duress. But, I will not be […]

Teff Love: Queen of the Nile

January 7, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

I don’t do resolutions. Not really. My resolutions are probably just watered down versions of presumably good ideas (i.e. eat only one bowl of ice cream per night, not two OR buy more lotto tickets). This year’s mini-resolution is something I have been working on (or meaning to work on) for the past couple of years: bake more with […]

Secrets of a Recipe Tester : Behind Baked Occasions

October 29, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Pure and Simple: Great cookbooks are made possible by great recipe testers (and a slew of other talented beings).  For our latest cookbook, Baked Occasions, we were lucky to work with some of the hardest working butter/flour/chocolate/sugar addicts across the country. They tested many recipes, many multiple of times, and they were not timid (thank you…I […]

Baked to the Rescue: A Very Vanilla Celebration Cake

October 8, 2014 | By johannah | 0 Comments

  In my family we have a time-honored tradition: there has to be cake. However, when you make cake a part of your daily life, this ups the ante when there’s actually something to celebrate. No regular old cake will do. There must be layers. Frosting is mandatory, as is tasteful decoration. Of course, it […]

Halloween Pop Tarts : Free Pre-Order Recipe

September 18, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

It’s almost fall. Leaf peeping, pumpkin picking, hot apple cider-drinking fall. This is a very good thing. Because as much as we love summer bike rides and pools and BBQs and beaches, we really REALLY love fall. Put away the shorts. Unearth the stretchy pants. Fall baking (and eating) approaches. We have much to celebrate […]
