  • Looking Forward: Fall 2016 Cookbooks Recommendations

    September 13, 2016 / By Matt

    above image from Better Baking by Genevieve Ko I am desperately trying to “Marie Kondo” my life right now, because I don’t really have a choice. My apartment is tiny by national standards and average by New York City standards and I am running out of room. Precious square feet are being eaten alive by big,…

  • Baked Tribeca : A Quick Update

    August 25, 2014 / By Matt

    Hope everyone is enjoying this last bit of summer – this perfect NYC summer. Drink it in and drink it up. Fall (and a new Baked) await you. We are getting a bunch of questions about the new bakery – probably because a few fall previews are starting to publish. So, if I may, just…

  • How To Make Welsh Rarebit (and Why You Should)

    February 4, 2014 / By Matt

    Toast is having a moment. It is at once being celebrated, and…oddly…heavily debated. If you are interested in reading more about the toast hubbub happening in San Francisco, you should read this and this now. Truth be told, I am kind of surprised and saddened (and outraged) that toast is being made a scapegoat –…

  • How to Make Cavatelli – Grandma Boreali Style

    September 11, 2013 / By Matt

    My grandmother, Grandma Boreali, really knew her way around a good cavatelli. She made them for me (with an assist from my wonderful Aunt Juju), like clockwork, anytime and every time I managed to escape for a “Grandma visit” upstate. By the by, Grandma also always made this addictive beast of a cheesecake below (recipe is…

  • Herby Nutmeg Popovers!

    December 7, 2012 / By amy

    Popovers.  They seem so fussy.  So messy, so temperamental.  You think, ughk, sure that eggy center and crisp outer layer are good but are they worth putting myself through total agony?  Not to mention the fact that you’re even supposed to have a special pan to make them!? Let me fill you in on a…

    November 20, 2012 / By amy

    Dare I say it?  Thanksgiving is t-minus 2 days away…oh no, did you just start sweating?  Relax!  Everything’s going to be fiiiine – just over pour and over feed and everyone is sure to have a fabulous holiday.  And maybe make these biscuits.  No, definitely make these biscuits.  They’re simple and scrumptious.   Heck, serve them alongside…

  • Onion Pull-Apart Rolls, Of Course

    November 14, 2012 / By amy

    Next week the holiday season officially begins.  And what better way to kick it all off than with a meal of epic proportions? Chances are you already have your Thanksgiving menu pretty planned out (or you’re more of a last minute kind of cook and that’s totally acceptable too) but either way I think you’ll…

    October 23, 2012 / By amy

    And just who says cornbread can’t be classy?  Adorned with rosemary sprigs and coarse sea salt this is a dressed up version of the classic we’ve all come to know and love.  And check out these adorable little loaves!  They’re fabulously moist and downright heavenly whether paired with a heaping bowl of hearty stew or…

  • Blue Cheese and Chive Gougères

    October 16, 2012 / By amy

    Gougères.  Pronounced goo/zheres.  Does that clear things up for you?  It’s French for deliciously puffy cheese balls. These little puffs are the perfect pass around for your next cocktail party or heck, bake up a batch for an evening on the couch watching your favorite flick.  They’re extremely pop-able.  The tangy blue cheese and mild…

  • Is that a mushroom in my cookie?

    October 9, 2012 / By amy

    I know what you’re thinking…mushrooms!? In a cookie? Get out! Let me explain.  I’m not suggesting you go out and purchase a crate of portabellas and throw them into cookie batter all willy nilly.  I’m talking about a certain kind of mushroom: the candy cap.  Grown in the Pacific Northwest these beauties once dried, carry…

  • Cheddar Jalapeño Cornbread

    October 2, 2012 / By amy

    A classic, yes, but one that’s so worth writing about.  Who doesn’t love them some sweet sweet cornbread?  Unfortunately it can go wrong in many ways…too dry, too grainy, not enough flavor.   This recipe, however, combines just enough cheese with a gentle kick from the cayenne and jalapeno resulting in a moist, delectable bread that’s…

  • Spiral Cheddar Loaves

    September 18, 2012 / By amy

    Cheese.  Let’s talk about it.  It’s pretty much the best thing ever right?  I love all varieties from the finest triple cream brie to casual colby jack – I don’t discriminate.  They’re all so salty, creamy and satisfying.  And how do we feel about bread? Yea, bread’s not bad either.  So naturally the right thing…

  • Butter Buns, Cheddar and Chutney.

    September 10, 2012 / By amy

    Answer me this – is there anything better than freshly baked bread right out of the oven?  I didn’t think so.  Ahh, bread.  The ultimate savory baked good. I totally understand why folks might shy away from making it at home – it seems scary – you have to buy yeast, there are vague rising…

  • Olive & Gruyere Quick Bread

    August 28, 2012 / By amy

    [Ed Note: Amy is back with her second post, and surprise…it is very cheese oriented. You should probably make this over the long Labor Day weekend.] Some breads are a true labor of love – the kneading, the waiting all day with the rising and the whatnot – others – just as their name suggests,…
