Chocolate coconut bites

There is the sweetest little bakery in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) called Bakeri, which I’m sure many of you know. It’s the kind of place that I once fantasized about opening when I lived in London. Coincidentally, the mural on Bakeri’s wall depicting a nymph-like woman holding a tray of cakes is almost identical to what we […]

  Since it was released last year, Sara Forte’s The Sprouted Kitchen cookbook has migrated from our book shelves to the coffee table, to the kitchen counter and back several times.

Sesame No-Knead Bread

There was suddenly a lot of talk about baking bread around here and during the last couple of snowstorms we finally brought our talk to fruition. I should mention our impulse to get a loaf in the works was spurred by my sister’s arrival back from Australia with a few precious gifts: a jar of […]

Whole Wheat Scones

This fall my sister got a serious “baking bug” and made everything from delicious ginger carrot layer cakes, biodynamic quark cheese cakes and pavlova, to whole wheat shortbread and a tiramisu (“pick me up” in Italian) that lived up to its name so much so that I was tipsy after I ate a piece and […]
