A collection of savory recipes.

TWD: Irish Soda Bread


Don’t laugh, but I’ve actually never had Irish soda bread before. Growing up, our St. Patrick’s Day menu was more likely to feature green oatmeal and green pancakes than corned beef and cabbage, but I don’t know what my excuse is now that I am an adult. I guess it’s a combination of ignorance, apathy,…

TWD: Corniest Corn Muffins

It’s a rare day when I post a savory recipe on this here blog. I think this is literally only the 3rd or 4th non-dessert to be posted since this blog started lo these many years ago. And one of the previous times was another TWD cornbread recipe!

Pita Bread, Jell-o, and a Radical 80′s Dessert

Hey, look, I have a blog! Life’s been busy recently and I took an unplanned blogcation for a few weeks–whoops. Sometimes a little break can be a good thing, though. Here are the highlights: I had a dinner party recently. The theme was “Dining Through the Decades” and the dinner featured nine courses, each from…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Spicy Cornbread Muffins

This post could be subtitled: In Which The Author Suffers A Case of Blog-Writer’s Block. I’ve put off writing this entry most of today because I can’t think of any clever or interesting ways of approaching it. People, I am on a strict New Year’s-inspired diet and exercise plan. All of my mental energy is…

Orange Rolls and The Bestest Salad Ever

Allow me to introduce you to orange rolls, my family’s traditional Thanksgiving roll. We had them every Thanksgiving, but I don’t recall ever having them at any other time of the year, so now I strongly associate them with Turkey day. Orange rolls and salad are the only Thanksgiving foods I actually enjoy (literally), so…

The Daring Bakers: Lavash Crackers With Two Types of Hummus

I think it’s fair to say that this month’s Daring Bakers challenge had me a little kerfluffled. The challenge was to make a vegan (and, optionally, gluten-free) flatbread called lavash, and a dip of our own choosing. Lots of people were psyched about it, but I was decidedly more…meh. Let’s run down the evidence: I’m…

Good Eats: Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

Tonight’s dinner: parmesan-crusted tilapia, herb couscous, balsamic-roasted veggies, and green salad. I know this doesn’t fall into the category of cake (or even death), but it was delicious and worthy of a close-up all its own. The super-easy fish recipe and a few more pics can be found after the jump.
