Persimmon Pumpkin Pie

“And Let Us Never Forget Where Home Is”, A Persimmon Pumpkin Pie Recipe

November 11, 2015 | By Brett Braley | 0 Comments

The world goes on forever when you live in small towns. Some parts of Indiana look like a prairie and some parts look like a jail cell. It all depends on if you make eye contact with strangers passing by on the street. It all depends on if you can afford the generic medicine at […]

Caramel Apple Cake

Caramel Apple Cake and the Pumpkin Show of Ripley County

October 28, 2015 | By Brett Braley | 0 Comments

I lost a tooth at a fair once. It was the Ripley County Pumpkin Show. I spit it in the dirt and someone kicked it under a game booth. I never got my Tooth Fairy money for it and blood ran down my chin that night. Midwesterners pray to a different set of harvest gods, […]

An Ode to Gatherings: Cheddar-Apple Butter Galette

[The second post from one of our fave guest bloggers, Brett of Fig and Bleu] Heirloom is more than the grocery store variety for those from the Midwest.   You may inherit your grandfather’s name as your own and it becomes a relic of the Depression-era sensibility that still runs deep in your own blood. You finish […]

The Chunky Bar in Cookie Form

September 9, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

Fair warning: Pumpkin is coming. There is no escaping it. You will soon be swimming in a sea of pumpkin spice lattes and your best friend’s house will be warmed by the light of Yankee Candle’s Pumpkin Buttercream jar (yes, this really is a scent). And, make no mistake, Baked will jump on the pumpkin bandwagon […]


Baked is Getting Classy

August 25, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

I KNOW it isn’t fall yet. And I KNOW we haven’t even passed Labor Day. But damn it, everyone is already talking about Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I don’t understand this…but maybe I do) and I already have a Doomsday Preppers-sized cache of canned pumpkin at the ready. Besides, I have good news to share. Our […]

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 […]


Building Baked Tribeca

February 4, 2015 | By matt | 0 Comments

Last year was a doozy. We launched a new book. Opened a new store. And, in general, bit off a lot. I have these momentary daydreams of embarking on some yoga/juice cleanse/beach inspired sabbatical. I want to luxuriate in a thick robe and drink tea out of a precious porcelain cup while reading some literature. But that […]
