Strawberry Rhubarb Meringue Pie (gluten-free or not)

I am very proud of this pie.  The filling is zingy, a bit tart and has a nice jammy consistency with chunks of fruit. The meringue is fluffy and sweet and very pretty, even if you (like me) have no patience

Four more weird and delicious pestos

In celebration of tender green things and the spring time, I like to make pesto.  Also, I tend to be very busy in the Spring and pesto is a fast way to add a homemade touch to quick food.  I

Hashed Brussel Sprouts with Poppy Seeds and Lemon- For the Spring!

One of my best college friends had a job as the reservationist at Union Square Cafe when we first graduated from college.  At the time, it was very hard to get a reservation at Union Square Cafe, so they were lucky

Raspberry Rhubarb and Almond Tart (Gluten-free or not)

I’m sorry that this post is coming so late in rhubarb season.  I spent a long time testing different versions of this tart before posting it.  In fact, I have made  four versions in the same number of weeks.

Pistachio Financiers with Rhubarb and Sour Cherry Compote (Gluten-Free)

I am very pleased with this dessert.  It is a tiny, tender, pale green cake paired with a tart, floral, pink compote.  One of the many things that I love about financiers (and compotes actually) is that they taste better
