Carrot Cake Recipe Years ago, when I was still in college, someone gave me a copy of the Silver Palate cookbook. I remember many of the recipes being over the top, both for my palate and budget at the time, and come to think of it, my cooking skill as well, but I still loved this book.

Spicy Sweet Potato Fries w/ Avocado Dip I think it’s perfectly acceptable to have Sweet Potato Fries for dinner–especially on a Monday night. Sure you could add a side salad into the mix or even pair it with a perfectly grilled steak, but what I want on the first day of a busy week is something that’s both easy and comforting. I also don’t want to share Spicy Sweet Potato Fries with anybody else on any day that ends in Y.

In an effort to compensate for the dozens of parties and outings and merriment she’s missed since the summer, her fiance had a surprise party (and a clean loft, swoon) waiting for her when she got home.

How to make the perfect pecan pie This week, in honour of Thanksgiving, I've finally been let loose on one of my favourite American desserts. Despite its heavenly combination of rich nuttiness and caramel sweetness, as a speciality of the south, pecan pie wouldn't have featured on the first Thanksgiving table. In fact, it didn't put in an appearance until the late 19th century. To be honest, even if they had come across trees bursting with nuts, I doubt the pilgrims would have approved of such wanton indulgence – ancient loyalties aside, let's be honest here folks: a buttery, nutty sugar pie is a much easier sell than anything made out of pumpkin. So, if you've never got on with the classic squash-based number, and even if you're not intending to go the whole hog with candied sweet potatoes and a bourbon noodle kugel (well, Thanksgivukkah only comes once every 70,000 years), it's a great excuse to make a proper pecan pie.

Ultimate Carrot Cake – revisited and even better! My Ultimate Carrot Cake first made an appearance on ZoëBakes in 2008, and it has remained one of my most popular posts.

The changes are subtle, because the original was pretty spot on, but this version wins. in the kitchen with: rigetta klint’s Æblekage I was having lunch at an Italian restaurant last week when everyone at our table was attracted by the fig dessert on the menu. The waiter broke the news that it is too early for figs, but at the end of the apple season, so why not try an apple dessert. After her very popular beetroot pesto in March, Rigetta Klint, founder of Slow Fashion House, has shared her version of a traditional and very popular Danish dessert, æblekage. Translated into English it is “apple cake“, though you will see it is not exactly a “cake”.
