The long-awaited Liberty branch of Smallcakes, the national chain based here in Kansas City, finally opened its doors on Monday, January 20, without much fanfare. A September article in the KC Star announced this newest branch would open in October 2013, but there was no sign or reason given for the delay when I visited yesterday. It's located behind the Quik Trip just off I-35 on the north end of town. I have visited both KS locations in the Kansas City area and though I usually enjoy the initial taste of Smallcakes cupcakes, about 20 minutes later, I always feel like I have a rock in my stomach (I just call 'em like I see 'em, people), so I haven't tried them in awhile, but I put my stomach where my mouth is again for the sake of the blog!

Bake your favorite chocolate cake and let it cool. In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. You want it to be very thick, thicker than cake mix, more like a brownie mix is. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. (If I’m in a hurry, I place the saucepan over ice in the sink for about 10 minutes or so until the mixture cools.) It must be completely cool before you use it in the next step.

This isn’t a traditional recipe. This is a quick and dirty (read: easy and yummy) version of a hot soup made with soba noodles topped with deep fried tofu. Putting fried tofu on top of soba noodle soup makes it kitsune soba.

smitten kitchen Thursday, January 16, 2014 pear and hazelnut muffins We all know that muffins teeter precariously on a razor-thin line that divides the food categories of “Acceptable for Breakfast” and “Nope, This Is Dessert” and one must maintain firm boundaries during the breakfast hours lest the day that follows devolve into a full-on bacchanal of Resolution decompensation that ends with one passed out amid scatters of Cheetos, ketchup packets and French fry grease with a side of cronut. Thus, when I come upon a new muffin recipe — or in this case, when my son is told to pick a recipe for us to make from a new book, and he predictably chooses the thing that most resembles cake — I immediately assess the list of ingredients and label them accordingly: Continued after the jump » Monday, January 13, 2014
