Bitch, I love Fall. Winter can wait. Lez lean into this weather, drink warm things, and get mad cute.
Good lord, this meal is for rich people. Every component of the dish is velvety and smooth; there is no texture, no croutons of hardship, no chili flakes of poverty.
I can’t think of anything more stereotypically magical and witchy than stirring together a bunch of ingredients, adding heat, walking away, and coming back to find a completely new structurally and texturally transformed delight that you can eat while daring to see if you’ve got it in you to finish watching Marianne on Netflix.
It’s officially the time of year when comfort and coziness are the only thing on my mind.
I hope that as time goes on I have reason to bring out the truly magnificent recipes i’ve been dreaming up in anticipation, but for now we start with a snack.
The actual coffee added to the batter amplifies the mocha flavor and elevates this cake from “good” to exceptional, so please for the love of cocoa do not skip it.
This bread reminds me of everything I love about fall.
I can’t think of a seasonal summer fruit that would star better in a caramelized honey flavored cake than sweet-tart plums that soften in the oven and become deep, silky, jammy wells of flavor.
A playful and delicious journey that I hope you’ll be taking very soon.
I wanna eat this on a lake at sunset or literally every hot summer morning for breakfast.
It’s the kind of dessert that’s best eaten with closed eyes and long slow pulls on the spoon as it leaves your lips, making sure you get every bit of chocolate off before taking your next bite.
If you’re fan of spicy margaritas I’m pretty sure you’ll love these popsicles.
How about a sugar cookie-filled Pride?
This would be a solid Mother’s Day breakfast plan if you’re celebrating tomorrow! Otherwise make it anytime but especially for beachside mornings, slow weekends at home, and any day when waking up queer in this world could use a little sweetness.
This recipe is perfect for this time of year when summer is approaching and a decadent treat is in order but the rising temperatures might already have you pushing the breaks on using the oven.
My friend Claire described it as the best strawberry cereal flavor but in muffin form and that’s totally it. You’ve got the sweet nutty almond batter filling in for the cereal, bursts of strawberry that are way better than the dehydrated cereal versions, and a sprinkle of white chocolate chips standing in for the creamy milk at the bottom of the bowl. Yes. You need these in your breakfast rotation.
Ideally with a nice baguette, apple slices, or a really sturdy cracker like the ones from Trader Joe’s with all the nuts and grains and dried fruit and stuff.
I use these biscuits in all the ways. They’re my favorite vessels for breakfast sandwiches and swiping chili bowls but I also eat them hot and plain straight from the pan, or smothered in jelly.
Given that it’s Black History Month and we’re doing a lot of talk about celebration here since Autostraddle is turning ten, I thought it was only fitting to share a recipe for this pie that’s such a tradition in Black American celebrations.
There’s something about lemon and thyme that really makes me ship them as a couple.
