On the Valentine’s Day 1974, after I graduated from the Museum School, I decided to create some colorful heart-shaped sugar cookies so as to make a little extra money. These little edible artifacts were put up for sale in local galleries and boutiques where they would unexpectedly issue in a new career for me and […]
Breakfast in Jamaica
Being a dessert officianado does not in any way imply that I am not interested in all kinds of food. I am a proponent of a healthy all natural diet with, of course, the occasional inclusion of a sinful treat
Rosie’s in Jamaica…Yah Mon
I have just returned from Treasure Beach Jamaica, a magical community on the western part of the island that allows you to step in and experience the local culture and people. I brought my cookbook along in the hopes of sharing some of the recipes. I was told about Dawn, a local woman, who had […]
Bake a Cake for New Year’s Brunch

Once Upon a Brownie – Chapter 1
My mother, a business woman, rarely baked, but when she did, I remember her throwing together the brownie recipe from the Mystery Chef Cookbook.

The Kahvé master roaster is personally responsible for all of our coffees. He knows the harvest, the altitude, the growing conditions […]

My search for a good Lemon Square recipe was a challenge; I tried so many and found that most of them were cloyingly sweet. I wanted something that emphasized the tartness of lemons–isn’t that the point? Over time, I came up with the one winning recipe with the perfect blend of sweet and tart. Our […]
Sweetening Up Your Winter Holiday!
I like to follow tradition around the holidays. When thinking about what to have for dessert for Christmas, I like to make something fruity with apples. Because apple pies are such an integral part of the Thanksgiving experience, I find myself wanting to use apples in a different way. For the past few years I […]
Once Upon A Brownie – Chapter 2
Because brownies are so easy to make, I have never been able to understand why anyone would use a mix. There are so many possible results depending on the type of pan used and the heat of your oven. Darker or thinner pans will over-bake the chocolate and cause a dryness. Many ovens are not […]
The History of the Soho Glob
Many years ago I was in Soho and there was this place called the Soho Charcuterie. I wandered in and they had these big hunky chocolate cookies that were chock full of pecans, walnuts and chocolate chips. I bought one of these super pricey cookies ( price was never anything that deterred me when it […]
