Happy first day of autumn!! Yes, it’s supposed to be 80 degrees here today but I hope somewhere it’s feeling like fall. I’ll live vicariously through all of you. On another note … Phew! Man, am I glad this week is over. How about you? How was your week? I hope it was better than […]

Truth be told, when I first saw the original recipe that I was supposed to be adapting this week I drew a complete blank. The original is a lemon zucchini muffin with whole wheat flour, almond flour and oats. It actually sounds very healthy which is perfect for our household but that’s not the way […]

I adore lemon. I love the brightness that it bring to any dish. From entrees to baked goods and everything in between. Ice cream is no exception. In the past, I’ve had lemon sorbet but I don’t recall ever having lemon ice cream. Recently I found myself having a few egg yolks leftover after baking […]

There’s something about making something from scratch, with your own two hands that’s just so satisfying. That’s probably why I love baking and cooking so much. I adore being able to make something and then share that creation with other people. Seeing other people enjoying my food is so satisfying. I show people I love […]

When Abby posted this month’s BakeTogether recipe for shortcakes, I was tempted to make hers just as she originally wrote it. Chocolate shortcakes with chocolate bits topped off with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. But that isn’t the spirit of BakeTogether, we must make it our own although clearly, it’s hard to top that original. […]

I don’t know about you, but I love fresh jams. I’m always intrigued by people who make their own from scratch. Any time I’m at a flea market or event that sells artisan goods, I’m always stock up on homemade jams or preserves. For many years now, I’ve been telling myself “This is the year! […]

If you’ve read here for any length of time, you all know that I don’t do a double crust pie. I love pie and you will find it in many forms here at Food Babbles but you will almost always find pies that only require a single crust. Once I did a lattice top that […]

I am a coffee gal. Big time. I love and adore it! I think it’s hereditary. The desire courses through my veins because it’s deep-rooted in my blood. Both my mother and grandmother are coffee girls too. My grandmother drinks hers black. I’m not that much of a coffee girl. I love it but I […]

Hello Summer!

June 20, 2012

Hello Summer! It has officially arrived. Here in New Jersey we’ve already had 90+ degree days but that was just a very confused spring. Now, I’m ready. Bring on the days spent in swimming pools filled giddy, squealing little girls as they splash in the cool water. Bring on the warm summer nights with the […]

Citrus Churros ~ #FirstOnTheFirst

June 1, 2012

During most of my high school years, I was awkward. Really awkward  I had gigantic, round glasses that made me look some sort of bug with large eyes. I was a complete dork. I wasn’t fashionable although in my own head, I thought my “patterned vests” look was pretty sweet. I had my small group […]

Citrus Wine Poached Pears & The Mediterranean Diet

May 19, 2012

Did you know that May is National Mediterranean Diet month? I didn’t know that until recently either but I am so intrigued by the Mediterranean Diet and thought you might be interested in knowing a little bit about it also. The Mediterranean Diet isn’t a “diet,” it’s a lifestyle. Much like the nutrition pyramid we’ve […]

Strawberry Lemon Macarons

April 25, 2012

In life, there are successes. Oh such sweet successes. Then there are the utter and complete disasters. This is one of those times. My macarons this month are not pretty. They are sad, little hollow, feetless failures. On the heels of such incredibles macs last month, I was terribly disappointed to find that not one […]
