Do you love cookies? Me too! I have the ultimate cookie book, Dorie’s Cookies. I thumbed through it and it had so many beautiful cookies that I was surprised that she’d chosen such a humble looking cookie for the cover. Then I found the recipe, World Peace Cookies. I had to try them. They are amazing cookies. She’s really not overselling it with that name. A huge thank you to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for letting me share the recipe with you. I’ll get to my review of the book afterwards, but first those cookies! Read More
I grew up in Wisconsin. People know about the cheese, beer, and bratwurst. Scandinavian bakeries are a really big deal there, too. Everyone’s got strong opinions about which bakery is the absolute best to get kringle and Danishes for holidays, gatherings, and weekends. Oh, I miss those bakeries! When I have a craving, I love to make them at home now. One of my favorite Scandinavian cookbooks is Scandinavian Comfort Food: Embracing the Art of Hygge by Trine Hahnemann. A huge thank you to Quadrille for letting me share her recipe for Poppy Seed Danishes with you! They are so delicious! (And yeah, she has a recipe for Kringle in there, too!) My review of the book is right after the recipe. Amazing book.

It’s chilly outside. Fire-pits and fireplaces, sweatshirts and sweaters, cocoa in warm mugs, crinkly orange leaves, cozy socks, baking, and melted cheese. This weather has me reaching for the book, Zingerman’s Bakehouse to make their pizza with a caramelized, crusty cheese edge and an oh-so-pillowy interior. It’s divine.
A huge thanks to Chronicle Books for letting me share the recipe for Detroit-Style Pizza with you so that you can taste the book!
