Mascarpone Cheesecake with Vanilla Almond Crust

I derived this cheesecake from one I saw on a food show one time. I’m always afraid when I make cheesecake that it’s going to be heavy and dry when it comes out. That’s never happened to me – and this recipe especially is so moist, and so melt-in-your-mouth that during a dinner party Gregg and hosted with four other couples, when dessert was served and everyone took a bite, there was a collective silence, then moan of appreciation. It was amazing and those friends still talk about that dinner party.

Essentials: Bakeware Part 2 — Cakes

I thought I’d do the next Essentials series with bakeware, but as I went to collect it all to take pictures, I realized just how much I had. So, I’m breaking it down into types: Cookies, Cakes, Pies, and Desserts. I’m afraid that this post is going to be a little long. Making cakes, decorating cakes, playing with different cake recipes — that is a passion of mine. I have been collecting cake related paraphenalia for two decades, and have an extensive collection.

Essentials: Pans, Frying Pans, Woks

I LOVE these pans. I will admit that I don’t use the 6″ pan often. I would consider this set complete without it. I use the 10″ pans ALL THE TIME. I use them for grilled cheese, casseroles, sauces, fried chicken, fried fish, doughnuts — you name it, I use these pans to cook it. I would be lost without these pans.

Essentials: Pots

I’ll begin with the very basics: your pots. Without a pot, you couldn’t cook a meal. Granted, without a frying pan you couldn’t fry an egg, and without a bowl, you couldn’t mix, but there has to be a beginning. And this beginning is your pots.

Moroccan Rice with Dried Fruit & Nuts

I modified this recipe to be able to make it with what I had on hand. For instance, the original recipe called for fresh saffron and white rice; however, I don’t keep fresh saffron in my cupboard, but I had a package of saffron rice. I am posting the recipe as I made it, so that I can be confident that you’re getting a good recipe that I’ve tried out.

Girls’ Night Out (In)

White Chili, Chocolate Cake, & Faith Like Potatoes. My friends would arrive less than three hours from the time that I held the four frozen solid pieces of chicken. I plopped the meat in the big stock pot, covered them with water, and proceeded to make white chili.
