Last year Fuzz offered our neighbors the full range of flavors, but this year she’s selling a limited variety including Thin Mints, Caramel Delights and my favorite — Peanut Butter Patties. What’s funny is that in all her sales calls, only two people have asked for anything […]

This weekend I made chocolate pie from The Helen Corbitt Cookbook, a book I inherited from my mother who probably got it as a wedding present. Helen Corbitt’s book was special in our home because unlike the other books we owned (for instance “The Blender Way of Better Cooking”) it had the warmth and humor […]

Gesine’s book was such a great read, but in my mini review, I failed to mention all the great recipes. Each chapter has one. There’s an espresso cheesecake, focaccia bread, some easy to follow German recipes, raspberry meringues, crunchy clouds, real cream scones, and many other user-friendly, run-to-the-kitchen recipes including one I’m dying to make […]

If there’s one thing the ancient Maya are known for, it’s their spectacular chocolate cream pie. Depictions on cave walls suggest it was served at Maya roadside diners, and legend has it that Maya cooks prided themselves on just how much cayenne they could add to the filing. Chocolate Cream Pies were so valued among […]

I’m driving across town this morning to sign some important documents. I have a bit of highway driving phobia and am very nervous.  I’m never sure I’ll make it home, so if you don’t hear from me, it was nice knowing you!  Keep on baking….or in this case, assembling.  Here’s a quick and easy recipe you can put […]
