banana cream pie

Bourbon Banana Cream Pie

A cream pie, of any kind, is actually a variation of an old-fashioned custard pie. But to me, a banana cream pie is a culinary work of art.  It is a magical combination of creamy vanilla custard, bananas, and whipped cream all layered together. This dreamy filling is set in an irresistible coconut graham cracker […]

red velvet cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red velvet cupcakes (or cakes) are traditionally red, crimson, or scarlet-colored colored cakes, with fluffy white ermine icing. And aside from my classic coconut layer cake, red velvet has become a recent obsession of my older son. The deep red hue of this popular flavor is visually striking and immediately draws attention. For my kid, […]

crispy tofu

Crispy Tofu With Napa Cabbage

Crispy tofu with Napa cabbage slaw is a tried and true family favorite. Dredging the tofu in cornmeal and cornstarch, before lightly pan frying, creates a crunchy exterior with a soft, pillowy texture inside. This is not my recipe, it’s from Cook’s Illustrated magazine. I have adapted this recipe a little over the years, but […]

grapefruit-lemon soda mocktail

Grapefruit-Lemon Soda Mocktail

For as much as I love fruit, I have never loved grapefruit.  I’ve always wanted to, but it’s been a struggle.  When I was a little kid I thought that eating a halved, sectioned grapefruit, lightly sprinkled with sugar and topped with a maraschino cherry served with breakfast was considered an elegant side.  I never […]

chocolate pudding

Chocolate Pudding

Although I am not a die-hard chocolate fanatic, many I know are. This recipe is for them. Chocolate can make many wonderful things, pudding is one of them.

fallen chocolate cake

Fallen Chocolate Cake

Not all cakes are created equal or considered beautiful, by modern-day standards. The fallen chocolate cake is the most well-known of all the “ugly” cakes. Despite that, I still find it remarkably intoxicating. The cake’s cracks are inviting and its uneven top is a curiosity. What lurks beneath that delicate sugary top layer is a […]

halibut crudo

Halibut Crudo

This halibut crudo is a fusion dish I developed inspired by my love for Japanese sashimi. “Crudo” is the Italian word for “raw,” and refers to a dish of uncooked fish, shellfish, (or sometimes meat) that is seasoned and dressed with an oil, some type of citrus juice, or, at times, a vinaigrette. Despite what […]
