For Breakfast and for Snacks: Peanut Butter and Jelly Scones

Peanut Butter and Jelly Scones

Peanut butter and jelly really is a timeless combination — just like macaroni and cheese. Olive oil and vinegar. Pizza and beer. The X-Files and Sunday nights. You get the idea. Also, be warned, these peanut butter scones are very habit-forming and a little well of jelly in the middle makes them even better.

A nice thing about these scones is that they also include whole wheat flour and wheat germ. They aren’t overly sweet (for instance, you’re not going to get confused and think you’re eating an oatmeal cookie), but . . . → Read More: For Breakfast and for Snacks: Peanut Butter and Jelly Scones

FFwD: Ispahan Loaf Cake

French Fridays with Dorie: Ispahan Loaf Cake

French Friday’s with Dorie this week was Ispahan Loaf Cake, which is Persian, very time consuming (what with the egg separating, whites beating, raspberry placementing, etc,…) but quite delightful when it was all done. Perhaps it wasn’t the best project for a Thursday night, but we were having tasty, slightly-warm slices of cake by 8pm, so that’s not too bad.

I really didn’t change too much here: I added a pinch of salt and used almond extract for the rosewater extract. However, I was able to find rose . . . → Read More: FFwD: Ispahan Loaf Cake

24 Hours on the Coast in Lincoln City, Oregon

Lincoln City, Oregon

Lincoln City is a long, sprawling town on the central Oregon coast. It has a casino, an outlet mall and continues along Highway 101 for miles. But it also has equal miles of sandy beaches, distinct neighborhoods and a couple of pretty good places to eat. It’s also known for all of the glass art studios that populate the area, as well as being a great location to view pelicans flying over the ocean. The Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau even hides glass floats on the beach for visitors to find in . . . → Read More: 24 Hours on the Coast in Lincoln City, Oregon

FFwD: Orange Scented Lentil Soup

French Fridays with Dorie: Orange Scented Lentil Soup

Hello French Fridays with Dorie and this week’s Orange Scented Lentil Soup recipe. How are you? Well, I thought you were delicious!

I tend to have the opinion that, although lentil soups are in standard rotation at our house, they can be kind of boring. But not this bowl — the orange and spices are definitely different flavors than I normally go with and I think that really made this recipe a huge stand out.

Of course, I did a few things differently. I had about . . . → Read More: FFwD: Orange Scented Lentil Soup

Corned Beef and Cabbage Risotto for St. Patrick's Day

Corned Beef and Cabbage Risotto for St. Patrick's Day

As promised, here’s another St. Patrick’s Day recipe (although it’s about a day later than I was hoping to post it). Luckily, there’s still plenty of time to plan on making a risotto like this for Friday’s (or Saturday’s, Sunday’s) dinner. If you are really smart, you will get a little extra corned beef and make yourself a sandwich at a later date — I was not smart. Learn from my mistake.

This is the second time I’ve used cabbage in risotto and I think it works . . . → Read More: Corned Beef and Cabbage Risotto for St. Patrick's Day
