Cast Iron Apple Cobbler

arry was enjoying an Ozzie & Harriet Sunday.  First, a basketball afternoon game with buddy, Bruce. Returned home to a piping hot Cast Iron Apple Cobbler. “Wow, it smells great in here.” I appreciated the Ozzie reaction, thank you.  Too early for dinner, they then watched another game on TV. Are they living the life, […]

Fresh Iced Cranberry Cookies by Worth The Whisk

Forgive me, Nestle. You often get my money for chocolate chips to make Toll House cookies, but this time I strayed. There was a packet of dried sweet cranberries in my pantry from a food conference goodie bag.  The cranberry package said “made for salads” — a dumb use, in my opinion. Go for the […]

My Four TOP Recipes Of All Times

When you write a cooking blog like Worth The Whisk, the mechanics of it can result in earlier recipes being tucked waaaay away in places quite difficult to find without digging.  You might find it interesting to read that these are my four top recipes of all times (on this blog). Not surprising, all desserts.

Guest Recipe ~ Plum Frangipane Tart by Gisele of Pain Perdu

My readers here know by now that I had a big event last Saturday when I produced the Day Camp of Camp Blogaway. One of our sponsors, Viking Range surprised us with door prizes, which lead me to think… hmmmm, bloggers LOVE to cook and they love to compete. Thus, a “Bonus Competition” was born.  […]

Citrusy Olive Oil Cake with Limoncello Drizzle

This cake was such a surprise! It’s not a fluffy commercial texture, nor is it a brick – which was my first thought when I heard we’d be making an Olive Oil Cake with Limoncello Drizzle at our “Date Night Romantic Mediterranean” cooking class with Chef Diane Brown. If you haven’t noticed, we’re a little […]

Triple Citrus Cupcakes with Lime Glaze

Culinary throw-down: prepare a dessert elegant enough to complement friends’ upscale picnic contributions, portable, and cannot compete in flavor with the other two desserts: Larry’s Famous Brownies As Seen In Bon Appétit, plus a batch of caramel corn. The venue? A cemetery, but not to visit dearly departed. We were there to picnic and watch […]

Milk Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

Whenever a TV show had Husband “surprise” Wife with the news that a business associate was coming to dinner, I’d think, “Who really DOES that?” Surprise! Larry just did. Told me Tuesday that Bruce was coming over Thursday for a meeting and dinner. WHEW. I already had the makings for an entree post I’d planned, […]

Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake

  Gourmet Club dinner: GREEK. Four couples, each once yearly hosts a “theme” meal at their home. Marlene and John will be cruising the Greek Isles next month and, happily, this theme choice produced one of our absolute best group collaborations. Laura snagged the coveted DESSERT course. Laura makes perfect flan, and so a “water […]

Strawberry Sour Cream Pie

Strawberry Sour Cream Pie.  This pie was scrumdiddlyumptious. So much, in fact, that after Larry and I had our slices, I pawned the rest off on two neighbors’ households. It was TOO good and my fear was we’d eat it all. Larry wasn’t thrilled with this, scored one more slice, tucked it into the fridge […]

Easy Meyer Lemon Curd

This is a sneaky trick. In my recipe binder there is a stunning magazine lemon custard recipe, which is baked in a water bath. I hadn’t made it yet, but had every intention. That is, until my friend Sandy told me her mother (native Californian, Meyer lemon tree owner) would make the lemon meringue recipe […]

Australian Impossible Pie

The internet is a magic carpet ride for me when I go recipe surfing. And I’m drawn to Australian food blogs, like Gourmet Jack. His slogan: Foodie Nirvana, Australian Style. There he presented Impossible Pie — is it really impossible? Coconut, crustless, custardy… crikey – sounds great!

Chocolate Dipped Peeps ~ It’s EASTER

I am definitely no food snob, witness this post. Believe it or not, Larry and I saw Chocolate Covered Peeps at a high-end cheese shop on LA‘s 3rd Street. Packaged, and expensive. So, of course, now that I know how to dip and cover things in chocolate, I couldn’t pass up the idea.

Crockpot Caramel Sauce Cooked in a Can

My goal was to make dulce de leche, a South American sweet spread. Traditional recipes boil milk, sugar, vanilla bean for some time, then strain, lots of sticky work. People also boil or bake sealed cans of sweetened condensed milk immersed in water, bringing to mind the thought of potential explosions. Then I discovered blogger […]
