Current Obsession: Gjelina’s Kabocha, Olive Oil and Bittersweet Chocolate Cake

March 30, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

I have been in New York City for a very long time. Very long. And it will always be, in some sense, my home. But, because I am human and because New York is trying and filthy and expensive and aggravating in ways that only New York City can be, I slip into Didion daydreams. […]

The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookie (and it is Whole Wheat)

March 3, 2016 | By matt | 0 Comments

Kim Boyce’s Chocolate Chip Cookie is a workhorse. (And her book is amazing). It has been around awhile and it is simple and no fuss. No, you do not have to let it age in the refrigerator for 3 days to develop flavor as the flavor is provided by the inclusion of 3 cups of whole wheat flour […]

Twelve Days of Holiday Cookies: Icelandic Kleinur

December 16, 2015 | By johannah | 0 Comments

The Nordic countries share many food traditions, none more delicious than klejner, a deep-fried pastry that dates back to the middle ages and is a common Christmas treat across Scandinavia and Northern Germany. Some differences persist. Danish klejner are typically unleavened. The same is true for Swedish klenäter. In Denmark, we also have Norwegian klejner, which are […]

Twelve Days of Holiday Cookies: Boozy Holiday Kisses

December 14, 2015 | By johannah | 0 Comments

Entering the darkest two weeks of the year – when our days here in Copenhagen shrink to a mere seven hours and oftentimes seem much shorter – keeping the winter blues at bay can sometimes feel like a losing game. A friend who comes from the furthest reaches of northern Norway, where it stays dark […]

“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 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

October 14, 2015 | By Brett Braley | 0 Comments

[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 […]

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) […]

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 […]
