I'm a big admirer of Thomas Keller and everything that he has created. He is so innovative and amazing so I think it's funny that one of his favorite desserts is a good old fashioned pineapple upside down cake. Of course, his version uses a fresh pineapple and dark rum but it's still a great classic dessert. You can also use almost any other kind of fruit in this recipe instead of pineapple. The recipe starts out with making what he calls a "pan schmear" - a combination of brown sugar and butter with other flavorings - that is spread on the bottom of the pan. The recipe will make more than you need, but it's difficult to make a small amount.

The Italian Dish - Posts - For Tomato Season: Roasted Tomato Soup with Parmesan Crisps Homemade tomato soup is good, but roasted tomato soup is even better. With the abundance of tomatoes right now in the markets, this makes great use of all those tomatoes and may be the best tomato soup you will ever have. This method calls for roasting the tomatoes, along with some whole garlic, before making the soup.

Dinner Tonight: Garlic Shrimp with Basil, Tomatoes, and Pepper Flakes [Photo: Blake Royer] I'm not sure I'll ever quite tire of the magical combination of garlic and chile—when a recipe begins with a little olive oil and garlic and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, I know we're off to a good start. I'm even more inclined when the involved recipe requires about 10 minutes of cooking and hardly any chopping to boot. I pulled this one from So Easy by Ellie Kreiger, which is full of health-conscious recipes that pack a lot of flavor. Healthy it might have been, but more importantly, delicious. Even though it's December and the snow has been falling furiously in Chicago, the sweet bursts of the grape tomatoes (which tend to be pretty tasty even through the winter months compared to regular tomatoes) and fragrant basil brought to mind a summer picnic.

Deep Dish Fruit Pizza 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. And I was nursing.

Two-Bite Strawberry Hand Pies 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. First, I went to Camp Blogaway, then I spent 6 days in Tokyo (expect a few Japanese themed recipes in the future – the place is life changing!) Jamaican Banana Fritters There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use!

Double Crust Blueberry Pie My grandma would be so proud of me if she were still a live because she was the pie maker in the family, and I finally feel like I can make a decent pie crust which is half the battle. Grandma made wonderful pies and it was always such a treat to go to her house or for her to come to ours because she always made a pie or had one in hand. As a child I only liked her lemon meringue and chocolate pies although I know she made many others. I wasn’t a crust eater then, especially a pie that had a top crust but things have changed since then. I love the pie crust now especially when the crust is flaky, buttery and melt in your mouth tender. My problem with pies now is waiting for them to cool long enough to cut into it :) and not eating half of it all by myself.

Perfect Pie Crust=Great Apple Dumplings With the holidays approaching ever so quickly, I thought now was as good a time as any to talk about the art of a perfect pie crust. Yes, yes, I know it is so easy to trot down the refrigerator isle and plop a couple pre-made ones into your cart…….BUT…..It is so fun to eat a pie that was made with love and a HOMEMADE pie crust! Pie crust has a bad reputation for being difficult or touchy. I would have to agree only in the area of being touchy.
