Sourdough bread!

Sourdough bread!

One of my stocking gifts this summer was a small dehydrated container of King Arthur Flour’s original 150 year old sourdough starter. I’d made sourdough starter about this time last year but wasn’t diligent enough to use and maintain it, so eventually it died. I’m going to be better with this one. I’ve already made … Continue reading

Homemade Mint-Pistachio Falafel and Pita

Homemade Mint-Pistachio Falafel and Pita

Last time Duke and I made falafel together we barely knew each other–we started dating two days later. Looking back, “dramatic falafel” was quite an apt title for that post.

I imagine this one would be easy to veganize (just substitute the buttermilk for something else, and use vegan butter or margarine). If you’re anti-honey consider replacing that too. I, however, … Continue reading

My Boyfriend is Making Me Fat (and Happy)

Chahles really, really likes baking. We’ve created a list of things to bake and are slowly progressing through them, frequently at odd hours. Take, for example, last Thursday night – it was the first “senior night” at the campus bar and a ton of friends were present. I got there right at the beginning (would … Continue reading
