I need a new dutch oven. Or a new oven. Or both. I burned the bottom of the first batch of this bread. Not that this stopped us from simply slicing off the browned bits and eating the rest, but still, I’ve never burned a loaf of bread in my life. So I suspect that […]

Baked Feather Boa Doughnuts

November 11, 2008

Yesterday morning I got up at 6:00 AM so I could make Heidi Swanson’s baked doughnut recipe and deck them out in true “Erin style” with oodles of pink icing and coconut. Since I couldn’t bring true Top Pot Doughnuts back to Boston with me I decided I’d at least have them in spirit. Voila! […]

Review: Williams-Sonoma Circus Cookie Cutters

June 1, 2008

I’m an impulse shopper, especially when it comes to kitchen gadgets and products.  If you show me something pretty, shiny, or god forbid pink and it somehow relates to cooking than I absolutely have to possess it.  So when I got a new product email from Williams-Sonoma last week featuring animal crackers on parade and […]

Baked Sweet Potato Latkes

March 9, 2008

My love of potatoes knows no bounds. I’m especially fond of breakfast potatoes. This morning when I woke up and started rummaging around in the refrigerator for something to eat on this bright Sunday morning I was instantly drawn to last nights leftover casserole of scalloped potatoes, zucchini, red peppers and ham. “Eat me Erin!
