Scallion Pancake Drop Biscuits

Kat and I made some pull-apart drop biscuits last week, and while they were delicious, at the end of the night, she and my entire kitchen were covered in flour. How I managed to escape the flour storm is a mystery, but in any case, we were left with a huge pile of bowls and trays to wash. Isn’t the whole point of drop …

Maple & Thyme Roasted Delicata Squash with Cranberries

While I am a butternut squash nut, it is a pain in the butt to peel those things, so when delicata squash are in season, I get them when I’m feeling lazy. The skin is so thin on delicata squash you don’t have to peel it off! YAY! This recipe is from my Williams-Sonoma Vegetable of the Day cookbook, which …

Rice Krispie Treats

Caramelized Rice Krispie Treats

I made rice krispie treats for an adult slumber party. You read that right. Liz gathered nine sleeping bags, made 8 pounds of guacamole, and we played three rounds of a made-up game. I supplied old-fashioned rice krispie treats because Liz wanted them plain, but then I took the leftovers home and made them much, much tastier. I almost set the kitchen …

Boozy Plum Clafoutis

I’m trying my hand at dark photography, or chiaroscuro. Though not too dark! I still want you to be able to see what you’re eating. You know when you’re in a restaurant and it’s so dim you’re just blindly stabbing your fork into the plate? No, we are not doing that here. Winter is coming, though. The light is steelier, more …

Zucchini Scallion Pancakes with Cucumber Yogurt Dip

These are the easiest and healthiest savory pancakes ever. I’ve been making them for dinner at least once a week since my mom first made them this past summer.  The basic recipe only requires four ingredients – one zucchini, one egg, a mere tablespoon of flour, and oil for frying. Then you can go crazy with add-ins! Scallions really boost the flavor, plus fresh herbs, crumbled cheese (think goat …
