End of Summer Blueberry PieEnd of Summer Blueberry Pie
Elizabeth Barbone - September 05, 2014

Joan Rivers died yesterday and I baked a blueberry pie. My mom loved Joan Rivers. LOVED HER. She found Joan's razor-sharp comedy delightfully prickly. Like Joan, my mother lost her husband at a young age. And like Joan, my mother was the mother to one child, a daughter.

Cream Puffs/Pate a Choux
Cream Puffs I can't stress to you how good these are! Really, I wish I could jump off the page, look you in the eye and say, "These cream puffs are awesome." Well, in a way I guess I just did! They take a little work to make, but you are rewarded with gorgeous golden brown orbs that beg to be filled with something yummy. Honestly, these are so light, it is like biting into air. Before making, be sure to read the Baker's Note. . . . keep reading
Amazing Chocolate Cake
I love it when I a flop in the test kitchen is actually something really tasty. What do I mean? Well, this recipe began it's life as a devil dog trial. It failed miserably as a devil dog! But I couldn't stop eating it! The reason it flopped as a devil dog was because it was too light and sank a little like a soufflé. But these qualities are what makes it an amazing grown-up chocolate cake. I hope you try this "flop;" it's divine! . . . keep reading
Almond Pear Tart
When I was a student at the Culinary Institute of America, we prepared frangipane almost daily. In fact, one of my chef instructors came to dislike frangipane so much that he threatened to have a bumper sticker made proclaiming, "Ban Frangipane." I, however, disagreed. I fell in love with this sweet, rich filling the moment it hit my lips. Made from primarily almond paste, eggs, and butter, frangipane has a flavor like no other. It marries perfectly with pears. If you've never tried frangipane, this recipe is a perfect place to start. . . . keep reading
Cherry Clafouti
I first learned to make clafouti while I was a student at the Culinary Institute of America. It is one of the last recipes I remember learning. I love this dessert because it celebrates the berries. The sweet egg batter just acts to hold the berries together. Make this for dessert one night when you need something a little extra, but don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen. . . . keep reading
Shoo-Fly Coffee Cake
Dear Elizabeth,
My sister first made this coffee cake for me in 1976 when I visited her new home in Pennsylvania. Is there anyway you could convert the recipe?
Moria K.

Vermont Moira, Until you sent your sister's recipe, I had never heard of "Shoo Fly" coffee cake. The molasses flavor makes for such a nice coffee cake, I'm surprised more recipes don't include it. Here is the recipe, enjoy it! Elizabeth . . . keep reading

Jam Turnovers
A cross between a cookie and a hand pie, I began making these treats after a summer trip to Maine. I visited the Stonewall Kitchen flagship store and came home with bags full of amazing jams. I wanted to do something special with the sour cherry jam. Turnovers seemed to be the ideal way to celebrate this jam. Since then, I've made turnovers with a variety of different jams. I'll admit, sour cherry is still my favorite, but they've all been delicious. . . . keep reading
Blueberry Cheesecake Bars
Thanks so much for all your recipes. I wanted to share a recipe with your readers for a cheesecake I've been making for years. When I was diagnosed, it was easy to convert this recipe to gluten-free. I just needed to use gluten-free cookies instead of my traditional graham crackers. Honestly, I don't think anyone even noticed! Anytime I'm invited to a cookout, this cheesecakes comes with me. I hope you enjoy it! Laurel Madison

Thanks Laurel! I certainly enjoyed this easy cheesecake recipe. The addition of jam in these bars enhances the fruit flavor nicely! In addition to blueberries, try this recipe with raspberries and raspberry jam or strawberries and strawberry jam. Honestly, any summer fruit would be outstanding in this recipe! Thanks for the recipe Laurel! . . . keep reading

Strawberry Ice Cream Sandwiches
We've replaced the traditional chocolate cookie with a luscious strawberry cookie. This new twist on a classic ice cream sandwich is divine. And, these ice cream sandwiches scream cute! Why? They're pink! Can you imagine? Pink ice cream sandwiches! Not only are the adorable, they taste fantastic. The only problem I have with these sandwiches is what to put between the cookies! I love the flavor of strawberries and cream, so, I usually use vanilla ice cream. Unless I am in the mood for strawberries and chocolate, then I use chocolate ice cream. Oh, then there is the double strawberry sandwich when I use strawberry ice cream.... . . . keep reading
