  • A Very Blue Cure for the Monday Blues
    on Aug 5, 2013
    If you read my last post about malasadas, or if you are my friend and subjected to my self-indulgent facebook posts, you will know that I was on vacation last week.  It was a great week and, in truth, it was also good to come home.  There i...
  • Fried Dough for All
    on Aug 2, 2013
    Let's be honest.  Who doesn't love fried dough?  Whether doughnut or beignet, state fair confection or sopapilla, it's good stuff.  This morning, I had the pleasure of experiencing fried dough in a new way.  I also had the pleasur...
  • The Sweet Side of the Sour Cherry
    on Jul 26, 2013
    Fresh, sour cherries are a thing of beauty.  They are also a bit of a rarity.  The "season" as it were is so fleeting that when you happen upon them at the farmer's market, you have no choice but to buy them because they won't be there the...
  • A Pound of Inspiration
    on Jul 21, 2013
    Once again, it's been a while since I've brought you any sweet somethings, nothings, or otherwise.  It's been a time around here--new job, crazy commutes, and moving.  In addition to having really no time to write, I've been thoroughly unin...
  • Whatchmacallit? Fuggedaboutit!
    on Jan 8, 2013

    Happiest of new years to you, dear readers.  I shall address you as though you still exist.  Well, of course you exist.  Whether you still follow, subscribe to, or stumble upon The Literate Baker on occasion is another question entirel...
  • The Apple Crisps Again
    on Nov 2, 2012
    Weird weather made the apple harvest in New York paltry this year.   Undeterred, I went apple picking anyway.  Although the specimens were small and scarce, they were pretty.  They were also more than sufficient for apple crispage.&nbs...
  • Judging a Bake-Off
    on Oct 15, 2012
    This weekend, I got to be a judge at a local bake-off.  The Great Tully Bake-Off is part of the Tully Fall Festival and helps to raise money for a local food pantry.  It was very cool to be asked.  Oh, and if you click on the website,...
  • Why Are Rice Krispies Treats So Good?
    on Oct 12, 2012
    No, really.  They are so good.  Eat the whole pan good.  Almost instant gratification good.  Make a whole batch for less than five bucks good.  I don't even miss the chocolate good.  (Although M&Ms in them are also c...
  • So Long, Summer!
    on Sep 25, 2012
    It's fall; I'm giddy.  This is no surprise to any of you.  I know.  I know some of you are with me and some of you are rolling your eyes and fantasizing about being somewhere tropical.  I'm not subtle and neither are you. Any...
