Mini Frittatas and Spinach and Cheese Pie for Passover

This is the first year Miss Yunks has done some of her own Passover cooking. I always keep Passover for eight days.  It’s not that hard to not eat any leavened bread, wheat, barley, rye, spelt or oats.  Even though my usual diet is heavily reliant on bread and pasta, it’s really not hard to […]

Cauliflower and Horseradish Cakes for Passover

A Passover story from Miss Yunks… A few weeks ago, I was clicking through posts on Cara’s Cravings and found her Passover Series.  Her recipes inspire me on a daily basis and I was excited to see she had a nice collection of Passover recipes.  Passover begins Monday evening and I hadn’t begun to prepare.  […]

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake and Peppermint Cheesecake


A-Tooch was a bake-a-holic this holiday season. Between Christmas Eve, Christmas day brunch, (ahem) the quarter century A-Tooch birthday and New Year’s, there has been plenty to celebrate with, of course, food.

Chocolate Christmas Pretzels


Looks like A-Tooch and Miss Yunks both have peppermint and holiday baking on the brain this week! A-Tooch was in the mood to make some holiday treats for the office, but cookies… not so much. A former coworker once created these “chocolate huggles” as she called them and they were delish. Pardon in advance the […]

Peppermint Meringues with Chocolate Ganache Filling

When Miss Yunks saw Kathy was planning a Boston blogger cookie swap she knew she needed to find a really interesting cookie to make.  While flipping through a Martha Stewart magazine at her parents’ house, she found a recipe and photos for peppermint meringue cups filled with chocolate ganache. That’ll do! I left the magazine […]

Happy Hanukkah

Last week this time it was Thanksgiving (feels like just yesterday) and today is the first day of Hanukkah. You can always count on Thanksgiving to fall on November 20-something, but Hanukkah, well this holiday just shows up whenever it feels like it. Or so it seems. For the first night of Hanukkah, I wanted […]
