extra-billowy dutch baby pancake
I was just yapping at how great these were at Bickford's in the 80s
Sometimes “newer, betters” emerge because the original recipe wasn’t as good as it could be. But most of them — like this — come from real life. Like, when you’re really tired on a Saturday morning and you look at a recipe that you swore by at some time in your life when nobody dragged you out of bed at 7am on a Saturday [and then, instead of handing you a cup of coffee for your troubles, as you’d once daydreamed they’d be trained to do by now, demanded pancakes] and say “WHUT.” A blender? No, I am definitely not getting the blender out right now. Wait, why am I turning on the stove and the oven? Do I really need this much butter? Why are there lumps in the batter? Why isn’t this as puffy as I thought it would be? Can I go back to bed yet? I mean, just for a random example that’s definitely not going down in my kitchen as we speak.

Middle Ages Art Depicts Snails To Be A Major Threat Apparently
If you were to look at art from the Middle Ages, you might find yourself staring at some knights in a fierce battle with ...uh... snails.
Why snails? That is a completely mystery. There are some theories Digital Medievalist, Lisa Spangenberg says that "the armored snail fighting the armored knight is a reminder of the inevitability of death," a sentiment captured in Psalm 58 of the bible: "Like a snail that melteth away into slime, they shall be taken away; like a dead-born child, they shall not see the sun."

Honey Ice Cream
the honey store in harvard square has this honey that tastes spicy, like INTENSE chai tea... it should probably be churned into ice cream
I didn’t fall in love with chestnut honey right off the bat. When I took my first spoonful from the jar, I took a little too much and recoiled from the bitterness. While celebrated in some cultures, some of us are less-accustomed to bitter flavors. I can’t eat bitter melon, for example, but I have come to love chestnut honey, especially when dribbled over toast with butter, fresh ricotta, or vanilla ice cream. In those cases, it’s magically transformed into a honey experience different from you might have expected, its assertive flavor tamed by the creamy elements.
Chestnut honey has an unmistakable flavor, which could also be described as a little smoky, and kind of spicy, and you just might find yourself craving it over and over, like I do. Although I’ve learned that a little goes a long way. We get miel de châtaignier in France although I think Italian chestnut honey is the most prominently available outside of Europe. It can be a challenge to find in the United States, unlike buckwheat honey, which is more common because it’s made in America.

Super Easy Gluten Free Cannoli Pie
If you love the taste of cannoli, this one’s for you! This smooth and creamy gluten free cannoli pie can be made with a pastry crust, a cookie crust—or no crust at all.
I’ve always had a deep and abiding love for cannoli cream, that lightly sweet mixture of creamy ricotta cheese and smooth, slightly tangy mascarpone cheese. I believe that cannoli cream should have either miniature chocolate chips—or no mix-ins at all. Little bits of candied fruit may be traditional, but I’m afraid I find them an unwelcome surprise. This gluten free cannoli pie is so super easy—way easier than traditional gluten free cannoli—especially since you can make it in a flaky pie crust, a cookie crust, or even no crust at all. I’ve even baked just the filling in a 9-inch round cake pan, greased and lined with a round of parchment paper, and I was able simply to invert the pan onto a serving platter with ease. Basically, you must try this tonight.
This cannoli pie is not really a cheesecake, since cheesecake is cream cheese + egg + sugar. But since cannoli cream is mascarpone (a close cousin of cream cheese) + ricotta cheese (also similar in texture to cream cheese when blended), when you add egg + a bit of sugar and bake, you have a smooth, clean-slicing pie.
The taste is everything you remember from cannoli (how does one even begin to describe that taste?), and the texture is smooth, fresh and creamy, light and almost fluffy. The crust is whatever you decide it is. This is your next baking project. And it’s a sure thing.
