Cheddar & Shallot Skillet Scones

It seems like people have very strong feelings about cast iron skillets, positive or negative. Those who don't own or use cast iron skillets regularly sometimes are scared of using them, because they think they're hard to care for. The seasoning of the skillet is a little intimidating unless you've read a little bit about... Continue Reading →

Lemon-Lime Ricotta Cookies

This is our last batch of end-of-the-rotation thank you treats. Why? Because this week we are completing our LAST clinical rotation!! We graduate in almost exactly ONE MONTH, on May 11th! We're really looking forward to be gainfully employed adults again. But don't worry, we have one more delicious treat for this last month. These... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Rugelach

We may have mentioned it once or twice, or a million times, but Selim definitely has the sweet tooth in this family. I could eat chips & dip for the rest of my life, but Selim could easily subsist on sweets, especially chocolate! We like to joke that he has a separate dessert stomach. It's... Continue Reading →

Dinner Rolls

At every family meal we have on my maternal side of the family, everyone gets really excited when they find out that my Aunt Bobbie has made the rolls or bread. She's famous in the family for delicious, fluffy, homemade rolls and bread. At this most recent Thanksgiving, when she was slicing bread to place... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Roll

I've had this recipe pinned for a long time, because I knew Selim would like it, but I found it really intimidating. When I bake, things just never turn out as pretty as the should. {I blame my friend/old roommate Terry - she is an amazing baker/dessert wizard. I'm just assuming that when we lived together, any...

Strawberry Streusel Bars

As we've mentioned before (see Mint Chocolate Bars), we like to bring a treats in for the staff when we finish a rotation. It's the least we can do for the people who spend their time and effort training us! We're not the only one's who do this - but we do try to have... Continue Reading →

Baklava

Filo dough can be very intimidating to work with.  It's hard to find, not used in American cuisine, and requires patience to handle.  We learned that filo dough originated in the kitchens of Topkapı Palace, where the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire once lived.  When people think of filo dough, most think of decadent sweets...

Savory Casserole Bread

Ally: What is casserole bread? Honestly, I had no idea when I was first looking at this recipe. Not joking, I literally googled, "what is casserole bread." Basically, as best I can tell, it just means that you don't knead it or let it rise so much, and therefore, it's a much quicker and easier... Continue Reading →

Challah

So the other evening, I tried to flip the ceiling fan on (after Selim told me not to because he thought it was broken, but I forgot ok?!), and instead blew a fuse. I tried to flip the breaker back and it sent blue sparks at me. So I quit doing that. I may not... Continue Reading →

Spiced Blueberry Pie

So confession. We're not really the big Valentine's Day types. I feel like I'm a middle-of-the-road kind of girl when it comes to this. I don't hate Valentine's Day or go on long rants against the commercialism of the day. But I also don't really love or expect a dozen red roses with a heart-shaped... Continue Reading →
