Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Like total dirty cookie on cookie action. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale. WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. [from giant rainbow cookies]

One-pan meals including Duck cassolet From My Father’s Daughter: "I first had duck confit with my dad on a trip to Paris at a place called Josephine Chez Dumonet. I never realized how delicious, tender, and yet crispy duck could be. When I discovered cassoulet (in which duck confit is the star) I was transported. When I stopped eating pork and red meat, I couldn’t indulge in it anymore, so I set out to make my own. This pork-free version is rich and deeply flavored—a great one-pot weekend supper. ingredientsmakes 4 preparation 1.Combine the beans, leek leaf, 1 crushed clove garlic, a large pinch of salt, and the bouquet garni in a large saucepan. 2.In a large heavy pot, cook the duck bacon over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, or until beginning to render and brown. 3.Meanwhile, put the duck legs in a large frying pan and set it over medium heat. The recipe is excerpted from My Father's Daughter by Gwyneth Paltrow.

How to Pipe Icing Roses I baked this spring bouquet of cupcakes for my Weekend Baker post on the Cooking Channel blog. I was limited in space and wanted to go into a bit lot more detail on how to pipe the icing roses.

You can find my recipe for the cupcakes on the Cooking Channel Piping Icing (This recipe is easy to pipe with and it has lots of body, so the flowers will have structure and not flop over. (makes about 8 large roses. 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 2 tablespoons shortening (This gives a little insurance that it won’t melt in your hands as you are piping) 4 cups confectioners’ sugar pinch salt 4 to 6 tablespoons cream (you can also use sour cream, which cuts the sweetness a bit) 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon extract (use an extract that is clear, so it won’t interfere with the colors you are piping) Food Coloring (Ateco #914)

Hungarian Sour Cherry Strudel Hungarian sour cherry strudel Although I've spent the majority of my life in the US, I was actually born in Budapest. My mother was a great cook, and I grew up eating all sorts of Hungarian dishes. Strudels filled with apples, cherries, or sweetened farmer's cheese were a popular dessert at our table. With the wide availability of frozen phyllo dough, strudels are easier to make than pie, can be assembled ahead of time, and held in the freezer until you are ready to bake. Ingredients:1 package frozen phyllo dough, defrosted 1 stick butter, melted 1 cup walnuts, ground ½ cup sugar, or to taste1 cup plain, dry bread crumbs 3 cups sour cherries, pitted and stemmed (use frozen if out of season) Equipment: 2 dampened tea towels, excess water squeezed out Pastry brushSharp knife Directions:Preheat oven to 400F. Lay the other tea towel in front of you. Brush the rolled up struel logs with melted butter.
