I was planning on sharing this pie crust post closer to the holidays, but on Monday Bon Appetit re-posted my Instagram photo of the salted butter apple galette I had made over the weekend (!!), and whoa Nelly, I had a ton of people ask me for my gluten-free pie crust recipe. I therefore shoved aside my original post (you’ll get it soon, promise!) to instead share this buttery, flaky, gluten-free pie crust that tastes just as delicious as the white-flour crusts of my childhood. If you do eat gluten (lucky you!) you can use this same recipe and technique using all-purpose flour. I’ve included a step-by-step video on how to do it below (never fear pie crust again).
School is out as of this week, and that means summer is officially here! For me, no food represents the sweet freedom of summer as ice cream. In honor of Ella graduating Kindergarten (oh geez, I’m getting teary), I developed a strawberry frozen yogurt just for her. It’s sweet, creamy, bright and a tad sassy (just like her), and it gets whipped up without an ice cream maker. It’s made with frozen strawberries, honey and Greek yogurt (so it’s even nutritious!) with a soft serve texture that rivals anything you can buy at the store (check out the how-to video below). Not that I have an issue with the store-bought stuff. In fact, I have to get something off my chest.
Picture this: an individual chocolate cake with a rich, dense center and a feather-light crackly crust. Envision a cross between a brownie, a cupcake and a flourless chocolate cake with a delicate, light crumb. Introducing chocolate crackle cakes. I named the cakes after their crackly crust, which might just be my favorite part. Or maybe it’s the fudgy center…. Hmm… I leave that for you to decide.
For all of you who are cooking for your moms and/or wives this Mother’s Day, I’ve got your dessert covered! This strawberry crisp tastes like a burst of sunshine and yet is easy enough for anybody to master (I’ve even included a video at the bottom of this page showing you exactly how to make it!). It comes together in under an hour using mostly pantry staples, and I promise it will earn you mega brownie points with the important ladies in your life.
