Surprise! Your New Favorite Apple Dish Isn't a Pie or Cake

Surprise! Your New Favorite Apple Dish Isn’t a Pie or Cake

Psst, apple lovers—over here! We’ve got some contest news you’ll want to hear.

When we first kicked off our latest contest, Your Best Recipe With Apples, we asked you for “sweet, savory, tangy, unpredictable, and everything in between.” And boy, did you deliver.

Whatever Happened to Boston Cream Pie?

Whatever Happened to Boston Cream Pie?

A very reliable indicator of a successful recipe is whether it’s endured through generations. Classic recipes that have stood the test of time bear the stamp of approval of thousands of cooks and bakers—the culinary equivalent of great music. We’re still playing the Rolling Stones today for good reason!

But some recipes, despite their enduring nature, get a little lost in the shuffle as time goes by. Case in point: Boston cream pie. It hasn’t disappeared altogether, but it’s nowhere near as prevalent as similar vintage (and geographically-niche) recipes, like St. Louis butter cake or Key Lime pie.

Pumpkin Pie Gets a Creamy, Nutty Upgrade From This One Ingredient

Pumpkin Pie Gets a Creamy, Nutty Upgrade From This One Ingredient

As an unapologetic choco-holic, I’ve always been a little disappointed at Thanksgiving. Nothing against pumpkin or pecan pie—I always save room for a slice of both. But when it comes to dessert, the flavor I’m most thankful for is chocolate.

I wanted to add a chocolate element to this year’s dessert table, but without adding a whole new dessert. So, I decided to give a chocolatey twist to a classic.

Is Brining a Turkey Actually Worth It?

Is Brining a Turkey Actually Worth It?

The great roast turkey debate is: To brine or not to brine? In my family, we take this one step further: To dry brine or to wet brine? That is, to season with salt Judy Rodgers–style or to soak in a saltwater solution. Both take place a day or more before roasting and both, theoretically, accomplish the same goals: reducing moisture loss (dry turkey, begone!) and yielding a flavorful, well-seasoned bird.

Is all this trouble actually worth it, though?

The 10 Most Insanely Elaborate Great British Baking Show Creations of All Time

The 10 Most Insanely Elaborate Great British Baking Show Creations of All Time

I have a lot of dreams about Great British Baking Show. Admittedly, some of them take the form of nightmares about Paul Hollywood pinching a piece of my freshly made sourdough boule between his thumb and forefinger while hissing “underbaked.” Or of my carefully rolled out laminations melting together in the hot, hot tent, before they can hit the oven and puff. Or of—oh god—my dough overproofing. (Please love me still, Paul. Please.)

But, the vast majority are pleasant ones, like where I’m sampling layers of a chessboard-shaped cake, tearing off a single “flower petal” on an intricately braided wreath bread, or biting the beak off of a meringue flamingo.

The Island in Spain Where Salt Is Like Gold

The Island in Spain Where Salt Is Like Gold

Mallorca is a special place for me. “I’ve been there!” I exclaimed on the night I met my future husband, Guillaume, when he told me his mom was from Mallorca—though I left off the bit about having gone with an ex-boyfriend. It’s where we got engaged, after a boat ride to a tiny island at sunset. It’s where we got married, inside a horse stable on my in-law’s finca. And most recently, it’s where we moved to open a pop-up sandwich shop.

I’ve lived in Spain a few times before, and though each time I leave with no intention of returning, I find myself, for one reason or another, drawn back in. This long-term relationship I have with Spain has always been more of a love triangle—me, Spain, and our attractive third partner: Spanish food. It’s the glue that’s kept us together over the years, even when we haven’t see each other for months at a time. Like a moveable feast, I can take the Spanish recipes I’ve learned and prepare them wherever I go.
