Alton Brown’s Pancakes

Alton Brown's pancakes are super fluffy with a hint of tang, thanks to the buttermilk. #altonbrown #pancakes #breakfast #brunch

this post for alton brown’s pancakes was originally posted in march 2016! the pictures have been updated. if someone’s going to be making breakfast at home, it’s usually my dad. weekend mornings consist of omelettes (usually with cheddar cheese, sometimes with smatterings of other things in the house- leftover caramelized onions, basil, tomatoes, avocado, mushrooms, […]

Almond Cherry Bostock

This almond cherry bostock can be eaten with a fork and knife, but it's equally as easy to pick it up and chow down. #cherry #almond #french #bostock #brunch

this almond cherry bostock would be good for christmas breakfast, though i’m pretty sure you won’t see this in time to test that theory out. so why don’t we assume that it would be good for any sort of special breakfast/brunch occasion you have coming up? also, let’s define bostock. (i sometimes assume prior knowledge […]

Marzipan Apricot Scones

These marzipan apricot scones are delicious plain, but also tasty with butter, jam, marmalade, and/or tea!

lying is bad. and yet, here i am lying. there’s actually no marzipan in these supposedly marzipan apricot scones, just almond paste.

Almond-Crisped Peaches

Introducing the easiest, fastest way to make fruit crisp: almond-crisped peaches. Tender summer peaches and crispy almond streusel. Endless variations.

with my newfound summer freedom, i’ve gone to sf, palo alto and santa cruz, with a weekend trip with some high school friends coming up in a couple days. i’m also helping coach a middle school softball team. speaking of which, were you annoyingly attention seeking and dependent when you were 11? there’s a know it […]

Cherry Jasmine Waffles

These cherry jasmine waffles have fluffy on the inside, crispy on the outside waffles, topped with cherry sauce and jasmine whipped cream. #cherries #jasminetea #waffles #brunch #whippedcream

i’ve had some minor cooking fails recently. but they’ve been piling up. the okonomiyaki that was impossible to flip because of too much cabbage and not enough batter. the cream puffs that didn’t quite poof enough and the flavors weren’t great enough to justify all the work. the first waffles to pair with the cherry […]
