Spicy Cheddar Cornbread Pudding

A little spicy, a little sweet and a lot delicious, this Spicy Cheddar Cornbread Pudding is our most-requested side dish ever. We use two kinds of cheeses — extra-sharp cheddar and pepper jack — to give it loads of flavor. Make it with fresh summer corn when it’s in season, but it’s just as good with frozen corn the rest of the year. 

Thai Basil Gimlet

Thai basil adds spicy, anise-like notes to a gimlet. Together with lime, elderflower liqueur, and good quality gin, the Thai basil gimlet is a cool twist on an elegant classic that we can sip while enjoying the color and scents of our summer herb garden.

Salted Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Salted Peanut Butter CookiesIs it possible for a cookie made without butter or flour to be the most delicious cookie we’ve ever tasted? The answer is a resounding YES. With only 3 essential ingredients: peanut butter, eggs and brown sugar, these cookies are practically a miracle. Crisp on the edges, gooey in the middle, with real peanut buttery flavor. Adding vanilla, chocolate chips and coarse sea salt just makes a good thing even better.

Hello, friends. We just posted a potted history of our kitchen renovation, in which we mentioned that we’d baked a fresh batch of peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. Well, here they are. We think we speak for most of us when we say, can we please have a treat now? We’ve been very good, and we’re very tired of being at home and we just want something tasty and fun to have with a cup of tea (a.k.a. bourbon, straight, no rocks).

Oh and also, we don’t have any flour because there’s none left in North America — you know, since it’s now mandated that everyone make homemade sourdough bread at the exact same time. And we also don’t have any more butter because we used it up buttering all that sourdough bread. But we can still make cookies, right? RIGHT?
