Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Dense, gooey chocolate brownies packed with boozy, port-soaked dried cherries. Made with Muscovado sugar, chocolate chunks, and crème fraiche.

Bittersweet Chocolate Tart

Bittersweet Chocolate Tart

The little black dress of my tart repertoire - bittersweet chocolate with a thin brown sugar crust. The filling is a dark chocolate ganache, the consistency of thick frosting, set off by the crispness of the crust, finished with a dusting of cocoa powder, and a pinch of sea salt.

Sparkling Cranberries

Sparkling Cranberries

Around the holidays these pretty, sparkling sugared cranberries are perfect. Tart and sweet, they glint and wink in the surrounding holiday lights, and lend a striking dash of red to the table.

Apple and Carrot Shortbread

Apple and Carrot Shortbread

An apple and carrot-flecked shortbread recipe inspired by a recipe I came across in Good Tempered Food by Tamasin Day-Lewis.

Peanut Butter Krispy Treats

Peanut Butter Krispy Treats

A twist on the classic, I use crisp brown rice cereal slathered in a decadent peanut butter maple syrup sludge. This version of treats has bits of chopped, toasted pistachios throughout - also vegan (no marshmallows) and gluten-free.

Old-Fashioned Blueberry Cake

Old-Fashioned Blueberry Cake

An old-fashioned blueberry cake sweetened with molasses adapted from a reader submitted recipe to the July 1974 issue of Gourmet Magazine - rustic, dark as chocolate, tender, and punctuated with lots of tiny pockets of oozy, magenta berry flesh.

Marathon Cookies

Marathon Cookies

I made these cookies for Wayne to eat when he finished the San Francisco Marathon. The batter is made with pureed white beans, lots of oats, and whole wheat flour. The resulting cookies are sesame coated and flavored with aniseed, lemon zest, olive oil and chopped dates. They are beautifully tender, licorice-scented, with a bit of crunch from the sesame seed coating.

Breton Buckwheat Cake

Breton Buckwheat Cake

A deliciously dense, buckwheat flour cake that can be baked off in a tart or cake pan. From David Lebovitz's new book, The Sweet Life in Paris.

Yogurt Tartlets

Yogurt Tartlets

These charming little tartlets finish off a meal nicely. Oat-crusted with a creamy, ginger-spiked yogurt filling, they are delightful topped with any number of adornments - fresh berries, dried fruit, or crystallized ginger.

Basic Chocolate Cake

Basic Chocolate Cake

This is a rich, decadent, but basic chocolate cake recipe. It is chocolate-packed, moist, and not-too-complicated. Baked and served in one pan slathered with a layer of fresh chocolate whipped cream frosting.
