Blackberry Thyme Crostatas

Blackberry Thyme Crostatas

There is a Los Angeles chain that we might have mentioned before called Lemonade that serves fresh vegetable-focused dishes, and you guessed it, lemonade. But not just plain lemonades grace the menu. Blood orange, pineapple coriander, and watermelon rosemary are a few of the flavors to be had. Before we moved last year, Lemonade was…

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Instead of a cake this year, I decided to make Dustin a pie for his birthday on Saturday. Sweet apples covered in homemade salted caramel sauce with Alderwood smoked sea salt in a homemade lattice pie crust. It was as delicious as it sounds! The apples stay slightly crisp in the pie, which I really…

Chipotle Peach Pie

Chipotle Peach Pie

This chipotle peach pie will shock and awaken your taste buds! I fully expected this pie to be a little bit smoky and hot when I first bit into it, and even I was still surprised. But in a good way− I kept going back for more and more! You’ll never go back to boring peach…

Cake Batter Cheesecake Bars

Cake Batter Cheesecake Bars

We celebrated the 35th “birthday” of a weekly meeting on the topic of memory that my graduate advisors host. The majority of the alumni of this meeting have gone on to big research careers. I’ve only been a part of this meeting for a year, but it has been a great learning experience, and I…

Blueberry Mint Pie

Blueberry Mint Pie

This blueberry mint pie was inspired by my favorite lemonade flavor at a local upscale cafeteria restaurant. I’ve started stopping by after my barre workout, which pretty much cancels out all the hard work I’ve just done. It’s just so refreshing to sip on during my walk home in the California sun. I started thinking…

Bailey’s Cheesecake Bars

Bailey’s Cheesecake Bars

Last year for St. Patty’s Day I made the Momofuku Grasshopper pie and two years ago I made these Guinness cupcakes with Bailey’s frosting;. I thought it was about time to bring out the Bailey’s again this time as the star in the form of cheesecake rather than frosting. I was pleasantly surprised at how…

French Silk Pie with Potato Chip Crust

French Silk Pie with Potato Chip Crust

Making a chocolate pie with a potato chip crust has been on the forefront of my mind for awhile now. I threw around using pretzels instead, or maybe a combo of the two, but straight potato chips seemed more fun in my head. When I told Dustin my idea, he was actually a little weirded…

Puff Pastry Pecan Baklava

Puff Pastry Pecan Baklava

It’s been a long time since I’ve made dessert for us. Not since the crystallized ginger chocolate chip cookies three weeks ago, which is indeed, a really long time in our life. Yeah, this quarter of grad school has found me so much busier than last quarter. But I had an extra sheet of puff…

Oreo Truffles

Oreo Truffles

My mom asked to me to make some holiday desserts for my dad to take into his office while I was visiting. Happy to oblige when it comes to making dessert, I wanted fairly easy desserts since I’m not as comfortable baking outside of my comfort zone in a new kitchen and without my standard…

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bark

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bark

I’ve made some pretty spectacular tasting birthday cakes, most recently the Andes mint chocolate chip cake for D’s birthday last month, and the Momofuku birthday cake will always be a contender for favorite cake. Normally I welcome any opportunity that gives me an excuse to bake a cake, even if it means making my own…
