Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream with Maple Syrup - The Messy Baker
Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

A while ago, Cari from Dinnervibe suggested I make a Halloween-themed ice cream. As you know, it doesn't take much to persuade me to whip out my Cuisinart, so even though the weather is turning cold, I accepted her ice cream challenge. Perhaps I'm in a...

Matar Paneer - The Messy Baker
Matar Paneer

I got out the good china and fancy napkins for this one. Not that matar paneer is an elaborate dish or extremely challenging. Instead, this recipe is a long, long overdue thank-you to fellow writer and Indian cuisine lover, Lora Shinn. But why am I polishing the...

Green Tomato Marmalade

Despite the amber hue of the resulting preserves, this is green tomato marmalade. And no, I didn't use the teeny-tiny yellow tomatoes on the left. They're just there for show. Instead, I used small to mid-sized green tomatoes like the ones below. I figured since I...

Fried Green Tomato Parmesan

The deed is done. I have picked all the tomatoes, uprooted the plants and put the garden to bed. Green tomatoes outnumber the red, but who's counting. I'd like to think the tomatoes didn't want to go any more than I wanted to remove them. I...

Roasted Tomato and Sage Soup - The Messy Baker
Roasted Tomato Soup with Sage

This blog has ruined me. Forever. Just this week I realized what my family has been accusing me of for years is actually true. I am a food snob. Not the Beluga-Caviar-or-Bust kind of food snob, but a food snob nonetheless. The facts are indisputable. I am...

Gazpacho Soup

You'll be happy to know all is forgiven. Seems I'm not the only one to have forgotten my sister's birthday. She read my blog post and called to say I had been keeping very good company in my neglect. Turns out one of her best...

Fresh Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar

I can't believe I didn't think of half the tomato dishes people suggested yesterday, especially since Summer Fest ended with tomatoes. Given my mental lapse, I'm quite surprised how polite you all were with your suggestions. Not one of you put "Doh!" in your answer...

ZucchiniSoup
Summer Fest Week 3 – Zucchini Soup

Zucchini is one of those innocuous vegetables that doesn't really stand out. Sure, the small ones can be tender, but the large ones tend to get spongy. Because of the high moisture content and neutral taste —and it's debatable zucchini actually has a taste —...

Butterscotch Peach Jam

Last week for Summer Fest, Stephanie of Wasabimon and I swapped blogs for the day. I posted about peach ice cream on her blog and she posted about peach freezer jam on mine. She was even kind enough to watch the comments section and answer...

How to Make Creme Fraiche

Look what I did! Pretty isn't it? This is just my maple squash soup and a drizzle of crème fraîche. I got so excited by the possibilities, I played with my food. While the heart was fun, it was a bit on the simple side. So I...
