Coconut Quinoa Pudding Parfait

I like to mix things up for breakfast. I am always on the hunt for healthful and different ideas that often leave J asking, “What exactly IS this?”. Barley, oatmeal, quinoa, it is all fair game on our breakfast table in savory and sweet variations.  This only takes a bit more effort than standard oatmeal,…

Ginger Peach Skillet Pie

I recently saw a pie baked in a cast iron skillet at the King Arthur Flour Blog.  This sounded like a pretty fantastic idea and I vowed to try it.  The cast iron helped the base layer of the pie bake evenly and warded off any sogginess.  It also looked pretty cool and rustic.  I…

Plum Cake Tatin

When I saw Ina Garten on Barefoot Contessa pour molten hot sugar syrup over bubbling plums for this cake, I knew I was going to have to make it.  Keeping a vigilant watch on my candy thermometer while a pot of sugar syrup boils always makes me feel a little like a mad scientist.  I…

Peaches and Cream Cake

When I was growing up, my mom would make us peach cakes with whipped cream for our birthdays.  They were my favorite cakes (that weren’t made out of ice cream).  My brothers and I would wait patiently to lick the beaters from the whipped cream and steal slices of when she wasn’t looking.  I think…
