Baked Eggs with Lemon, Cream, and Poppy Seeds

We have a sneaking suspicion that lemons are about to be the new superfood (if that happens, you read it here first). It’s not that we don’t love our kale and quinoa, we just need a little more variety.Aside from the fact that lemons have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties as well as antibiotic effects, they’re […]

Nutella Cupcakes

When Fran and I first met, our kids were going to a small country school in the south of France. Nutella was a staple in every French kitchen then, and took the place of peanut butter in our lives for awhile. It was also served as an afternoon snack at school everyday, smeared thickly over […]

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

I grew up in a Poppin’ Fresh family. My mother was not a baker, and had no desire to be one.

Instead, I mostly seemed to inherit their hand-me-downs, and for sure I never—ever—got my favorite flavors when […]

While Fran has been hanging on to the last threads of summer with her Whiskey Smash and her S’more Cookies, I’ve been pining for colder weather and a change in the seasons—something California has been holding out on. But now I’ve grown tired of waiting, so I’ve moved on with my fall baking. We may […]

Apple Cranberry Walnut Lattice Pie

A few years ago, I brought a cranberry-apple pie to a dinner party. It didn’t go well.The pie was fine. It was the same apple-cranberry pie I’d been making for years. In fact, it was so fine that another woman at the dinner–not the host, not someone I knew very well–asked for the recipe. I […]
