Pumpkin Black Bean Chili


This chili was a little bit of a leap of faith for me since it prominently features two flavors that I’m not typically wild about: pumpkin and parsley. However, I was feeling adventurous and wanted to celebrate some fall flavors. Plus, I was feeding it to a crowd, so there were good odds that I […]

New York Times No-Knead Bread


This is my current favorite bread to make: New York Times No-Knead Bread. It takes a little bit more planning (but no more effort) than the method from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day, but I’m liking the flavor, crumb and crust better right now. Don’t get me wrong, both are great — it’s […]

Unassuming Artisian Bread

Gluten-Free Cornbread with Cheese and Green Chiles

As promised yesterday, here is my new favorite bread recipe.

This bread makes great toast, it makes a good sandwich and, of course, it’s […]

Due Date Brownies
