Plenty of Ways to Cook Peaches

by Elizabeth Skipper September 24th, 2014| Ask the Chef
I tried grilling peaches as part of our dinner.  I liked that we had warm, more tender peaches. However, I wasn’t crazy about the smoky flavor. To get the same results (minus the smokiness) would it be better to sauté or broil the peaches?

Ah, peaches – one of summer's

Mix-in-the-Pan Cherry Crunch

by Jane Wangersky August 7th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s cherry season around here right now, and I got a good deal on them the other day at the produce store, since I was willing to overlook a few bruised ones. I ate a couple of the unbruised cherries, then stopped, because the inside of my mouth was

Here's a cool pie for those hot days. This time the crust's made of pretzels! You crush them and blend with butter and sugar for an easy press-in pastry that's both sweet and salty, and only takes a few minutes to bake. Next comes a

What You Need to Caramelize Crème Brûlée

by Elizabeth Skipper July 30th, 2014| Ask the Chef
I don’t own a kitchen torch to make crème brûlée. I have heard that I can use my oven’s broiler. However, I also am worried about putting the glass dishes under the broiler. Won’t the combination of glass and a broiler have bad results?

10 Fitch Tropical Breakfast Sorbet

by BnB Finder July 22nd, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Where I live, we handle winter a lot better than summer -- we're much more used to winter. Lately, it's been too hot even for coffee or tea at breakfast. That's the kind of day when our thoughts turn to breakfasts like this. Though this sorbet is much like

Make Your Own “Jello”, Only Better

by Elizabeth Skipper July 16th, 2014| Ask the Chef
I make most of my desserts from scratch:  cookies, cakes, pies, pudding.  However, I never have made gelatin from scratch. I always buy the flavored box mix.  Is it difficult to make homemade gelatin? I know that I can purchase plain gelatin but wasn’t sure how I would infuse

This special dessert takes some time and planning, but it features what has got to be the easiest homemade pie crust ever baked (at just 10 minutes' oven time, it won't heat up the kitchen too much either). And it's just what you need to

Gelatin Turns (Almost) Anything to Jelly

by Jane Wangersky July 4th, 2014| Cooking Basics
If you’ve read my aspic recipe, you know I’ve been doing some thinking about gelatin -- not the finished jellied dessert or side dish, but the stuff that makes it that way, plain gelatin. It’s one more of those ingredients that seem to have a magical, one of a

Real Whipped Cream: Keep It Real, Keep It Whipped

by Elizabeth Skipper July 2nd, 2014| Ask the Chef
I saw a recipe that has whipped topping (non-dairy) with blueberries and strawberries to make a flag design.  I personally detest whipped topping.  However, I think that homemade whipped cream won’t hold up as well at a cookout.  Any suggestions on what I could use as a topping? The
