Dark Chocolate Chip Pavlova with Strawberry Whipped Cream

This has been an exciting week for me! I am so happy to let you know that I am going to write a second cookbook!  It will be another book about pies, because you can’t have too much pie I suppose, but this book will be different than the last in that it will focus on gourmet ingredients and high-end flavors.  I have a pretty tight deadline for this one but I am confident I can get it all written in time.  To celebrate I decided...

White Chocolate Fudge Pie

You would think I would be over pies. It is true that after writing Everything Pie (due out in September and available for pre-order at the link to your right) I would never want to bake another pie again.  For a while that was true, but after a few pie-free months I noticed that I did not feel the same instant aversion to pie as I had.  In fact, last week I actually had a craving for pie.  Specifically one made with white chocolate...

Cornmeal Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting

I am the kind of person who appreciates texture. Texture is a make or break for me, particularly in food.  Example – I love the flavor of pears but the grainy, sandy texture is a real turn off.   On the other hand, a plain hamburger bun is fine, but sprinkled with crunchy little poppy seeds I find it hard to resist.  My first experience with a cornmeal cake was one filled with trepidation.  I had it firmly set in my mind that a...
