Creme Anglaise French Toast recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I strongly believe that the path to the best French toast begins with making an ice cream base (also known as créme anglaise). Sure, this is as decadent as can be, but it’s the holidays; a time when rest, relaxation and indulgences are welcomed. This French toast was designed for the pre-diet, juice cleanse and all that New Year’s mumbo-jumbo that we’ll soon be guilted into.

Bake Alfajores for a Peruvian Cookie

Alfajores recipe

In Lima, Peru my family has owned a bakery for more than 30 years. My great great aunt, who was the head baker and holder of all our family’s recipes, would come visit our family in the United States about once a year. She’d always spend a day or two in the kitchen, her favorite place, showing us how to bake some of her favorite Peruvian treats. These cookies were always my absolute favorite.

Toast the Season: Satsuma Orange Margarita

Satsuma Orange Margaritas recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I’m not what you’d consider a “guac and margs” girl. I usually opt for a dark beer with my Mexican food and margaritas tend to be too tart for my taste. Also, when it comes to crafted cocktails. I tend to lean towards dark spirits like bourbon and dark rum, and generally steer clear of tequila-anything (there was a bad experience in college that left me sick for days). College, man. But when I saw these beautifully bright satsumas at the market, I figured I’d give it another go on the ol’ margarita-quest.

Kick Off the Holidays in Style With Autumn White Wine Sangria

Autumn White Wine Sangria Recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I love making specialty cocktails with fancy bitters, artisanal spirits and all that jazz, but they can be a bit of high maintenance, especially when you need to make them for a large group of guests. Enter: sangria. It’s not fancy, and it doesn’t pretend to be. It’s delicious, refreshing and can change depending on the season.

Fall Baking Kept Simple: Crustless Apple Pie

It’s often said that you can spot a good baker by how meticulously they measure things. Given that my other blog is called No Recipes, I’ll let you come to your own conclusions on my talents (or lack there of) as a baker. That’s why most of my baking is limited to simple stuff like cookies and crisps.
