FFwD: Marie-Helenes Apple Cake

Friday, October 29, 201019 Comments

Most of the time, I love the idea of apples more than I love the actual apples themselves. They’ve never been one of my favorite fruits.   It’s what they represent – cool, crisp Autumn days, the heady aroma of cinnamon and spice wafting through the house from a baking …

La Tavola della mia Famiglia:  Brutti ma Buoni

Sunday, October 24, 201023 Comments

One of the things I love about native Italians is that they say what they mean, and they don’t mince words.  Take these cookies, for instance.  They’re called Brutti ma Buoni, which means “ugly, but good”.  Don’t you love it?  These unassuming, delicate little puffs of meringue studded with …

TWD: Caramel Pumpkin Pie

Tuesday, October 19, 201026 Comments

One of the many things I love about Dorie’s recipes as that most of them are pretty forgiving.  That is to say, that when I’m not paying attention and screw something up, I can usually fix it and no one but me ever knows.   Case in point: this …

I’m really enjoying this new little group, French Fridays with Dorie.  So is Mr. SGCC.  He likes that I’m cooking real food, and not just sweets.  I like that too, but I also like that if I get really busy I don’t have to participate every week.  It takes …

Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

Monday, October 4, 201051 Comments

Aside from my family, there are two things in this world that I honestly don’t think I could live without.  At the very least, my quality of life would surely suffer without them.  They are Nutella and Rice Krispie treats.  Seriously.  I have to keep the Nutella jar safely …

FFwD: Gougeres

Friday, October 1, 201026 Comments

Oh, Happy Day!  Dorie’s new cookbook has finally arrived!  I picked up my copy of Around My French Table last week and was in love before I got past the dust cover. The book is filled with over three hundred of Dorie’s favorite recipes, culled from her time spent …

kiss the cook!

Hello and welcome to SGCC! I’m Susan, a professional writer, food columnist, recipe developer, wife, mother, daughter and sister, who used to be a lawyer in a previous life. My love of food comes from a long line of wonderful and creative Italian home cooks who didn’t always have a lot, but knew how to make a lot out of what they had. I hope that you enjoy yourself while you’re here, and visit often! read more >>
