Chocolate Cheesecake and Dessert-apoolza

Yup, our new store is open. You should come. It is awesome, but it has been a whole lot of insanity. And now Thanksgiving is nipping at the heels…and well, I am too old for this excitement and madness. I promise to spill more words about the buildout and opening shortly, but right now 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 […]

Make Your Own Homemade Nutella (Please!)

August 13, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I really really like Nutella. Always have. Always will. It is part of my baking repertoire (Nutella scones anyone?) and it is the one hi/low foodstuff that is a constant in my pantry. However, over the years, I have been cheating on Nutella – experimenting with all sorts of homemade versions (including this one featured […]

Midnight Baking: Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Ganache

July 23, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I am not a great sleeper. In fact, I am a terrible one. I sleep in fits and starts – often with long stretches of sleeplessness (i.e. fidgety, eyes wide open, brain skipping/chugging) during the night. It used to bother me a good deal. It made me angsty and angry. But I have learned to give in – […]

No Fuss Homemade Ice Cream Bonbons for any Summer Party

July 9, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

You need to make these. You need to make these right now and all summer long. It is too damn hot to turn on your oven. And, I mean…homemade ice cream bonbons. Yes. Always yes to ice cream bonbons. I am THAT person. I am on my couch, watching TV (Veep over and over), eating […]

Gluten-Free Adventure Bread (sort of like a giant granola bar)

June 18, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I am a toast person. Almost borderline “toast obsessive”. In fact, I pretty much start each and every morning with toast – slathered in homemade almond butter or Nutella or both. And, quite honestly, I’ll toast anything: classic sourdough, muti-grain, a baguette split lengthwise, a hunk of aging miche, even (on the rare occasion) cornbread. Give […]

Better Than Bisquick – Homemade Whole-Grain Pancake Mix

May 14, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

At the moment, I am on a bit of an “alternative flours” kick. I have a renewed evangelical zeal for for spelt and buckwheat and whole wheat (of course) and even the nutty kamut (I really love me some kamut). It feels so hippie, but it feels so good. And, most importantly, I can’t wait to […]

Yup, Chocolate Milk and Cookies Ice Cream

May 6, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

I am aware that perhaps I celebrate too often – that I reward myself for minor (er…very minor) accomplishments. Case in point: more often than not (weather permitting) I will take a Citi Bike from my perch in Dumbo to Baked in Red Hook (well, as close as I can get to Red Hook with […]

My New Favorite Madeleine: Buckwheat Brown Butter Madeleines

April 10, 2014 | By matt | 0 Comments

Historically, my relationship with the madeleine, has always been a bit unhealthy. A bit “love/hate”. We have had tremendous times together, and many, many “difficult periods”. We started off with a bang – my first attempt at making madeleines was fairy-tale like. The lemon scented cakes emerged from the oven with a stupendous, glorious hump, […]
