I love mini pies. They’re personal, portable, adorable, what more could you want out of a pie? And with summer coming to an end, strawberry rhubarb is the way to go.
I don’t have a lot of things in common with Oprah. I don’t have my own TV network or magazine, and I don’t have the ability to give out cars to a full studio audience. But, just like Oprah, I. LOVE. BREAD.
Especially if that bread also contains chocolate, cinnamon, and pecans, and is personal sized (though sometimes a full loaf can also be personal sized if you try hard enough). So naturally, when a craving for something sweet hit me one Friday night, I decided to make myself some mini chocolate babka buns. The final results were perfectly sized, fluffy, swirled brioche-esque rolls with the perfect proportion of filling to bread.

When I was little, my mom gave me this tiny, doll-sized book about tea ceremonies around the world. I don’t know if it was the mini size or the tempting illustrations, but since then I have been pretty obsessed with tea parties and all of the little goodies that go along with them. I had always wanted to make petit fours, and when I finally gave it a shot they did not disappoint.
These french-inspired glazed cakes are the perfect bite-sized treat for an afternoon tea with friends, and a thoughtful homemade alternative to a Valentine’s Day box of chocolates. Keep reading to learn how to make them!
Grilled cheeses are generally thought of as savory snacks, good for dunking in a bowl of tomato soup or a lazy lunch. While I am a strong advocate for pretty much any cheese-and-bread combination, these recipes are for the more adventurous of grilled cheese devotees.
As summer comes to an end, it becomes increasingly important to get the most out of it while we still can. And what screams summer more than a local farmers market? In my mind, there is no better way to make use of that farmers market by using all that fresh, beautiful produce to create a layered ratatouille that rivals in taste and presentation that cooked by even the most skilled of french rats. (You know, the movie…)
