Recipe: Mango Whisky Cream

by Jane Wangersky June 30th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
An ice cream dish with a kick -- that was what I wanted to create this week. Something for grownups who haven’t outgrown ice cream yet but whose tastes have matured a little. Maybe it was the thought of Father’s Day, maybe it was recipes like this, or maybe

Banana Caramel “Ice Cream”

by Jane Wangersky June 23rd, 2016| Desserts, Recipes, Simple Solutions
It’s ice cream week here at TT, which means I could’ve simply used ice cream as one of my starting ingredients . . . but somehow I couldn’t get into that. For one thing, my family tends to like ice cream as is, with maybe the occasional ice cream cake

Recipe: Chocolate Charlotte

Lots of moms see Mother’s Day as a break from cooking, and while I’m an exception to that (which has something to do with why I’ve ended up writing cooking articles), your mom should have some time off from the kitchen if that’s what she wants. So here’s a really

Recipe: Cinnamon Banana Pudding

by Jane Wangersky February 11th, 2016| Desserts, Recipes
I couldn’t be around for the initial taste test of this dessert, so before I left I was careful to tell my tasters that though the pudding might look like strawberry or raspberry, it was actually banana and cinnamon. How does a pudding like that end up pink? The secret
chocolate mousse

Recipe: Double Chocolate Vanilla Mousse

by Jane Wangersky February 4th, 2016| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Chocolate mousse is one of those French dishes that are really pretty simple once you get over any fear of starting from scratch, and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. Yes, you can make it from a mix, but I think it’s better homemade.

Recipe: Molasses Candy Pudding

by Jane Wangersky October 21st, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Halloween is our theme this time, and it occurred to me that there was more to Halloween cooking than treats (which everyone buys ready-wrapped anyway) and party food. There’s the candy your kids don’t like. What to do with that? I bought some cheap molasses candy and started experimenting.

Recipe: Grilled Brown Sugar-Ginger Pears

by Jane Wangersky September 30th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Once again the produce people are delivering three-pound bags of pears to us, often before I’ve finished using the last bag. Just this week I baked a double batch of Butter-Oat-Pear Crisp. At first glance this didn’t fit in with our food focus: grilled food. But with

Strawberry Cream with Gingered Honey

by Jane Wangersky May 28th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
Since my recipe last week was so loaded with sugar, I challenged myself to make this week’s without any. Strawberries on their own don’t really need any sweetening, but since I had also decided to use sour cream I knew I’d need something to sweeten the mix. Mānuka honey

Chocolate-Cranberry Pears

by Jane Wangersky February 26th, 2015| Desserts, Recipes, Simple Solutions
We’re still working our way through a large delivery of pears here, and I’ve made pear crisp more than once. Well, now it’s time for another pear dessert, good in a different way, and even easier to make.

The inspiration for this came from several different sources, including my go-to

There’s Nothing Like Sugar, and That’s Okay

by Jane Wangersky February 20th, 2015| Cooking Basics
As you begin to cook and bake more from scratch, you also begin to get a feeling for how much sugar goes into our culture’s typical desserts. And that can be a little shocking. After all, we know that sugar, at the very least, is full of empty calories,

Butter-Oat-Pear Crisp: Simple and Good

by Jane Wangersky February 19th, 2015| Recipes, Simple Solutions
The fruit-and-vegetable people brought us a lot more pears than I’d expected (should’ve read the list more carefully), and I needed to create a simple dessert, so guess what’s the main ingredient this week? I thought about honey roasted pears, pears poached in cheap red wine, baked pears (like

Orange-Melon Gelatin

by Jane Wangersky February 12th, 2015| Desserts, Recipes, Simple Solutions
I nearly called this Melon Marmalade Gelatin, but after thinking about it I decided that wouldn’t be right, since it doesn’t contain any marmalade. However, if you like the taste of marmalade, you’ll like this dessert. Using undiluted orange juice concentrate gives it a strong flavor similar to what
