This is part III in a mini-series of Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life ( part I is on Honeydukes treats, part II is all about the cauldron cakes, and part IV showcases decadent butterbeer cupcakes). Last August, my family made the two thousand mile journey to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Orlando has always been one of my family's favorite vacation destinations.
This is part IV in a mini-series of Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life ( part I is on Honeydukes treats, part II is all about the cauldron cakes, and part III features every wizard's favorite drink—butterbeer!).

This post comes to you from damply beautiful Seattle, Washington! Yes, kids, I am in Seattle for BlogHer Food 2012 and not just as an attendee, but I am speaking ! I am nervous, but terribly excited, and ready to get the party started! The last month has been a CRAZY travel month for me.
If you’re looking for a delicious dessert this 4th of July, look no further. Here’s a recipe for low-calorie Red, White & Blueberry Cheesecake Bars from www.RecipeGirl.com .

Thursdays around here are now Thirsty Thursdays, where I’ll share recipes for cocktails, mocktails, and just plain old nectar of the gods like this Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee. (See also: Meatless Mondays and Tuesday Tips . It’s gettin’ all crazy and stuff here on the Kitchen Treaty blog.)
I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect.
They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried.
I’ll admit it—my workday lunches can get pretty boring. I always think I’m going to finally make use of all those delicious recipes I’ve been pinning away , but then nighttime rolls around and I’m too busy watching really important things like The Bachelorette and Vampire Diaries . And then morning comes, and I’m running around like a headless chicken and I’m lucky if I remember my keys and bus pass on the way out the door, let alone find time to throw a tasty lunch together. But with a teensy amount of planning, delicious lunches can be just a few easy steps away.
My sister-in-law Missy first introduced me to the concept of fruit pizza years and years ago, and here’s how: she brought one to my house and I proceeded to eat the whole thing. But it was small.
The Produce posters are now available for purchase at The Sweet Tooth Paper Goods Company . Ten percent of Kitchen 101 poster sale profits will go towards supporting education in the culinary arts. I’d be remiss if I simply focused on imparting technical knowledge in these Kitchen 101 posts without talking about ingredients, particularly the biggest misconception about produce today: it is naturally available year-round. Though you may be able to find just about every type of fruit, vegetable or herb everyday of the year in the grocery store, a majority of those items are not in season. If you are buying a strawberry in december, you are likely purchasing a fruit that was picked six months ago and stored in a climate controlled facility. Or you are buying a berry that has spent the last few weeks in a shipping container as it trekked halfway across the globe from somewhere in the southern hemisphere.
More of a “why have I not been doing this for years?”
Jun 29 Not to sound full of myself, but I’m pretty sure this is the be all, end all of popsicle roundups.
I’m a huge fan of apple pie at this time of year – when not only are apples at their peak, but far more varieties are available in grocery stores and at farmers markets. As the days grow cooler and shorter, there’s no better way to warm the house than with a baking pie. I recently came across this stunning apple pie at Family Feedbag , a Canadian food blog based in Victoria, BC; can you think of a more beautiful way to top an apple pie? This one shot to the top of my must-make list. Amy , the mom and baker behind the relatively new (not even a year old!)
