What are your “Keys to the Kitchen”?

February 25th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill


I’m lucky. I got to ask Aida this question up close and personal. If you don’t know her name, you should. Aida Mollenkamp is California-based food expert, TV host, writer, and culinary curator. She studied at the Cornell Hotel School (like me!) and Le Cordon Bleu Paris before joining CHOW.com where she worked behind the scenes as Food Editor.

The Joy of Cooking: Gerri’s “Sour Cream” Pound Cake

January 28th, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

I get so much joy when I cook for others, so last Saturday I threw a little dinner party at my house with two of my close friends. There are so many positives to this:

Positives: I love to cook and bake, It makes me happy, allows me to escape the pain, I can eat a safe meal with friends, I can try out a new recipe, my friends love my cooking, and most importantly,  we always have a good time together.

Today I am going to share with you the dessert I made for the dinner party. It was a cake recipe my mom got from a friend, which I converted to be gluten/dairy free. When making the recipe I had to (more…)
