Shoofly Pie Recipe and Cookbook #Giveaway

by Anne Papina on October 13, 2013

A few months ago when I first saw the press release for William Woys Weaver’s latest book, As American as Shoofly Pie: The Foodlore and Fakelore of Pennsylvania Dutch Cuisine, I had to have it. As I may have mentioned before, I have a thing for cookbooks. Throw in a history lesson or two, and […]

Apple Gingerbread Upside-Down Cake

by Anne Papina on September 27, 2013

What is it about fall that sends us into baking mode? Does that nip in the air propel us to the kitchen, whisk in hand? Gearing up for the holiday season to come? Meanwhile the markets are brimming with pumpkins and other squashes that work oh-so-well with sweet spices. And of course there are the […]

Banana Bread with Candied Walnuts

by Anne Papina on August 19, 2013

Nothing beats the aroma of baking bread, although I suppose that could be said about most baked goods, not just breads. While nothing pleases me more than warm bread slathered in butter, I don’t do much baking myself. And when I do bake, I mostly stick with simple things such as quick breads and drop […]

Browned Butter Cake with Honey Glazed Figs

by Anne Papina on July 7, 2013

Have you ever seen a recipe and thought I must try that? Of course you have, and for me, that was the case with this cake. It was some time last year that I first discovered the Browned Butter Peach Cake on Spontaneous Hausfrau, and I was mesmerized. Now, you’d think it was those fresh, […]

Whole Grain Zucchini Blondies

by Anne Papina on February 24, 2013

While searching for something interesting to make with zucchini, I stumbled across a recipe for zucchini blondies. Hmmm. I do love a good blondie, almost better than brownies (gasp!). I have a thing for butterscotch, what can I say? I know from many years of baking zucchini bread that the mild flavor of zucchini works […]

Chocolate Baumkuchen #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on February 10, 2013

It’s that time of year again. You know, Valentine’s Day–when couples go full-on mushy, exchanging cards, candies, and flowers. Here on the interwebs, we like to exchange recipes, so the #SundaySupper crew has compiled dozens of romantically inspired recipes for you to share with that someone special. I figured why not go showy, so my […]

Old-School Boozy Rum Cake #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on January 20, 2013

When remembering the foods of your childhood, what stands out the most? I’d say it’s a tough call. I never really thought of my mom as having a signature dish, but if she did, it would likely be this classic Bacardi rum cake. Of course, here on Webicurean, most of the recipes are similarly old […]

When it comes to the kitchen, I’m pretty fearless. In fact, one of the first meals I ever prepared included chicken cordon bleu with a chocolate charlotte for dessert, both recipes from Seventeen Magazine. I was hooked. Shortly after that, my mom signed me up for the McCall’s Cooking School cookbook series, which provided a […]
