Citrus Angel Food Cake with Peaches

At this time of year, when juicy ripe peaches are plentiful, I try to come up with creative ways to make use of the sweet fruit. This month, my local co-op had a bin of the most beautiful, fragrant peaches — I think maybe the best crop I’ve had in years — and I couldn’t [...]

Sifted: Ultra Flavorful Turkey Burgers, Sriracha Roast Chicken + More

5 Hot Links We’re Loving: Who says turkey burgers have to be dry and boring? This roasted jalapeno cheddar burger with BBQ aioli by How Sweet It Is is anything but. A Couple Cooks‘ grilled eggplant Parmesan is a fun summery spin on the Italian classic. The Gouda Life’s recipe for spicy Bloody Marias calls [...]

Kelsey’s Icebox Cake Essentials

The icebox cake is an iconic retro dessert that is perfect for the summer months. From June to August I avoid my oven at all costs, so the only way to make cake is by “baking” it in the refrigerator, rather than the oven. It’s easy to make and is always a favorite among family [...]

Rustic Black Forest Cake

This is a very tossed-together Black Forest Cake, or, as I like to say when I am too lazy to bring out the piping bag and tips, it’s “rustic.” It has all the components of the classic German torte, but without the fuss. Layers of dark chocolate cake are sandwiched with fresh whipped cream and [...]

Easy Rhubarb-Cherry Pie

This pie was baked by my 14-year-old son. He made the dough, mixed a filling of tart rhubarb and sweet cherries, and then he created the lattice. I sat back, trying not to take over, and just watched in amazement as he figured it all out. It was a thing of beauty to see him [...]

Fresh Homemade Strawberry Jell-O

Jell-O always seems a bit like magic to me. Add water to the brightly colored, sugary powder and in no time it’s solid and jiggles like a good belly laugh. The problem is, the stuff in the box tastes like congealed, watered-down kool-aid. There is no actual fruit involved, just artificial color and flavor. But, [...]

Philadelphia: A Dream Destination for Ice Cream Fans

No doubt about it; I’m an ice cream lover. But lately, there’s been two things weighing me down about it — and not just the actual pounds stemming from my five-scoop-a-week summer diet (hey, there’s been a heat wave around here): 1) It is nearly impossible to get a ‘small’ in New York City for [...]

Summer’s Hottest Ice Cream Flavors

Summer’s here, and that means indulging in our favorite summer foods: burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, frosty cocktails and — of course — ice cream. Every year, ice cream store owners across the country predict which flavors will most appeal to customers. As new flavors come on the market, proprietors weigh the pros and cons [...]

Grilled Banana Bread Ice Cream Sandwiches

I inherited my banana bread recipe from my future mother-in-law; it’s the only recipe my fiancé claims is worth making. I’ve made a few changes of my own to the recipe over the past few years, and now it’s the only recipe I claim is worth making. My secrets? I roast the bananas to bring [...]
