Creamy Cheesecake

Last week our younger daughter turned sixteen.  Her requested birthday menu was a great example of how things change and yet stay the same.  The now 16 year old is the same daughter that used to be vegetarian.  Having returned to the the omnivore's world over a year ago,

Ten days into February, we're still deep in winter here in New Hampshire.  With an inch of snow last night and temperatures forecast for the twenties all week long, signs of spring are far away.  At this time in winter, I begin to feel the impact of winter in

Last Monday I wrote about the pear cake that I made on a recent, snowy Sunday.  As I mentioned in the article, this cake was topped with frosting.  Like the cake, the frosting was a new-to-me recipe.  Something had me thinking about mascarpone and its delicious flavor- how

The other weekend we were expecting an overnight snowstorm.  As we weren't sure how much snow we would get, we decided to be stocked and ready for a Sunday spent indoors.  To end our snowy day we would enjoy a freshly baked dessert, pear cake.

Sometimes convenience and a craving merge in the most delightful way.  Such was the case a few weeks ago when I had half a box of Corn Chex in the pantry and was able to turn it into a treat that was both salty and sweet (a favorite flavor

I made cheesecake this weekend, so obviously I needed to make a topping for it.  At least in my opinion, I did.  While I love cheesecake, whether it be cream cheese-heavy, ricotta-heavy, or a blend of the two, I find that its flavor is one-note.  The texture, albeit creamy,

I've been baking since my early teens, maybe even longer.  While I've never baked or cooked professionally, I have learned many skills and techniques.  So, you would think by this time I would trust my instincts.  However, when I am making something new to me, I follow the recipe

Last week I shared my latest creation of sweet and salty: Sweet & Crunchy Pretzel Clusters.  I also mentioned that I used those same bite-sized snacks as part of a pie.  It seemed that the harmony of salty pretzels and sweet brown sugar coating could make a wonderful crust

We have had our ice cream maker for about a year and a half.  In that time we have tried a number of flavors:  vanilla, coconut, pistachio, coffee, and more.  We haven't used the ice cream much in the last few months, as winter weather isn't necessarily conducive to
