Tomorrow we’re serving the cake y’all have come to love. Our ‘Cure Everything’ Cake has been around town, making its first appearance at @springhousews last year when our business had barely hatched. It’s also been on the menu at @graze_ws and has shown up at weddings and birthdays and other special events. It’s a classic, and one of our favorites - a decadent chocolate cake we usually serve with caramel buttercream, but for tomorrow we added some extra love from @magicbeansnc and frosted it with Coffee Caramel Buttercream. See you @cobblestonefarmersmarket !
305 W. Fourth St., Winston-Salem, NC. 9-11 AM.
Did you see my disaster in making these today? I didn’t give up because the ingredients combination was so delicious so I changed them into VEGAN MUESLI PIKELETES . Hubby came home and demolished them in like 3 minutes and then asked for more 😂 Recipe below!
1 ½ cups @orgran_healthandnutrition Cranberry Crunch Brekki Muesli
1 ½ cups coconut yogurt
3 tbs agave syrup
1 tsp @orgran_healthandnutrition egg replacer + 2tbs water
1 banana, ripe and mashed
½ cup Gf plain flour
2 tbs LSA
vegan butter for frying
maple syrup for serving
1. Combine the muesli, yogurt and agave syrup in a bowl and place in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
2. Add to the muesli mixture the egg replacer, banana, plain flour and LSA. Combine well.
3. Melt some butter in a frying pan and over medium heat add a dinner spoon size amount to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, then flip over and cook a further 2 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Serve warm with a drizzling of maple syrup and optional ground cinnamon or fresh berries. *

Ok. I’m challenging myself with a new project and it’s possible I’m biting off more than I can chew. I tend to have ideas that grow all out of proportion until they become overwhelming monsters that scare the crap out of me. And then I just give up and don’t follow through with them. Lame. So I’m gonna take this one slowly. It may take me 2 whole years to finish it but I’m committing, here and now, to follow it through to the bitter end!
So here it is: 50 States of Cupcakes. That’s right, a cupcake recipe for every state in the U.S. of A. 50 cupcake recipes. Five-Zero. Why this project? I’m not completely sure. I think I’m hoping to discover—or rediscover—something in the process of making this most American of desserts over and over and over again.
Can I just say it? 2017 was a weird year for us. Uncomfortable. Absurd. Painful. Frightening. Enraging. Confusing. Encouraging. Hopeful. All the things. As 2018 progresses, I feel compelled to get to know my country better—how we really started, what we’ve done well and what we’ve messed up, who we’ve wanted to be and who we actually are, and where, oh where are we going?
Bigger questions than mere cupcake recipes can answer. 😉 And heaven knows I’m no historian/sociologist/economist/journalist or otherwise qualified to offer nuanced opinions on the state of the nation. I guess my hope is that, in researching each state, I can offer a few factoids and honest stories that inspire us to embrace, warts and all, the lovable mess that is the United States of America. And that, in embracing her, we would begin to make her better—for ALL people. (And, hey, if that doesn’t work out, at least we can all walk away with some kick-ass cupcake recipes! 😁)
So, without further ado, here’s a preview for the first entry: California Triple Citrus Chiffon! Here we’ve got a Blood Orange Chiffon Cake filled with Pink Grapefruit Curd and topped with Meyer Lemon Whipped Cream. Since it’s high citrus season and California is our leading producer of fresh fruit citrus, I thought this would be a good place to start! Recipe soon to drop on my new blog! 😊🍋🍊
The life of a freelancer: scheduling a mid-week brunch for a bunch of freelance friends, and then getting booked for a shoot right in the middle of it. At least I had 37 minutes before leaving to eat three rounds.

SKORDALIA (garlic dip). Nothing will keep your friends, family, and even strangers at an arms length away (or further) from you than taking just one bite of skordalia. Any bites after that and you can guarantee to be quarantined. No wonder it’s my favorite dip. 😋
Skordalia is a dip defined by the skorda (garlic). And we’re talking lots of garlic. Traditionally, skordalia is puréed with potatoes as the base, but it can also be made with bread, nuts, or both to add a little more texture. The potato version has a smooth consistency and is basically like super garlicky mashed potatoes. My version of skordalia foregoes the potatoes and uses bread and walnuts as the base.
Give it a try! Direct link is in my bio. 👍🏼
I’m doing a cooking class on April 15 with Syrian refugee friends, Hiam and Munzer, at @sohonc in their #eatforacause series. Head on over to my @thecooksinthekitchen profile for details and a link for tickets. UPDATE: SOLD OUT.
HINT: we are also doing a class in March and it sold out before I could post, so if you want tickets buy them today.

SYRIAN COOKING CLASS...
The dinner table provides a beautiful gathering place for us to celebrate the diversity of our cultures and to appreciate the hardships and accomplishments we have all experienced in our life’s journey. It’s been such an honor for me to meet these dear ones from Syria, and to have cooked with them in their kitchen and shared dinner at each other’s tables. We’ve told stories and laughed and cried together, and it’s given me a greater understanding of how difficult life can be for many in this world.
In collaboration with @sohonc , we will be offering a cooking class in the #eatforacause series on April 15. During the class, Hiam and Munzer, Syrian refugees who came to Winston-Salem in 2015, will be cooking family recipes and sharing stories of their lives in Damascus and their transition to life in the United States.
The class is $40 a person, and all proceeds go directly to Hiam and Munzer and their family. HINT: if you want a ticket, buy it today as there is limited seating. They are also doing a class in March and it sold out before I could post it. LINK IN PROFILE. UPDATE: SOLD OUT.

Confession...I ❤️ cereal. Like a real, sincere, could-and-often-do-eat-it-for-other-meals-throughout-the-day love and for every sad bowl that’s out there, there’s a cracker like this @dustgranola Cacao & Buckwheat Granola with Greek Yoghurt & Roasted Rhubarb 💕

My favorite word to come before chocolate is double. Like these Double Chocolate Biscotti. Because you can never have too much chocolate. I personally plan on consuming ridiculous amounts of chocolate tomorrow, who's with me?

There are little gems hidden all around Winston. One of my latest finds has been @lavenderandhoneykitchen. Everything is made from scratch and I appreciate that they use freshly milled organic flour. When I was a little girl, I had a summer birthday and always requested a strawberry cake. Of course when they posted their valentines menu with this lovely cake, I could not resist. Thank you @lavenderandhoneykitchen for bringing back the best childhood memories of sitting on the porch at the beach eating strawberry cake. This cake is pure perfection!

I flung open the windows to let in a breath of spring-like air. This reminded me of the ocean and then I thought of friend Karen @feather.and.field on the shores of Long Island and of her Chocolate Pavlova. So this happened. 👩🏻🍳We will be feasting on this tonight with clouds of cream and berry compote as we sit around the table telling stories.
Speaking of stories. If you’d like to read Karen’s story, the link is in my profile for a feature I did about her in my #thecooksinthekitchen series. She’s one of my heroes. AND, you can find the recipe there for this delightful pavlova, made with egg whites, cocoa powder, sugar, dark chocolate and balsamic vinegar. #easierthanpie

A Second Chance 🐾 “...Emily had always lived in a yard and was not an inside dog, she had never been on a walk and was 12 kilos over weight. She did not know how to walk up stairs and was not familiar with most household things like the sound of a kettle. “There was something about Emily, she liked us and seemed at peace just sitting with us as we talked. We decided to adopt her and give her a home”, says Ben. ....”
