As it starts to feel more and more like fall, I find myself craving the best pumpkin flavored-food: pumpkin bread. The great thing about this recipe is that it can take whatever form you want it to: it can be made as a traditional loaf (this recipe makes two loaves), can be made in a bundt pan (this recipe makes one bundt cake), or made as muffins (this recipe makes about 12-15 muffins).

It’s late at night and it’s time for bed, but you feel a wave of hungriness wash over you. Thinking the feeling will go away, you stay in bed, not wanting to take the time to make food.

This recipe makes some of the best brookies you’ve ever had. Brookies (brownie batter and cookie dough in one) are a relatively new baked good, but they’re as delicious as the classics.

Fried chicken is many people’s favorite food, including mine. This is a recipe for Haitian fried chicken, which is different than American fried chicken because of the different types of seasoning and the cooking methods we use. Homemade fried chicken is better than the fried chicken you get at restaurants because it is so much healthier—you control the kind and amoun...

Griot (pronounced “gree-oh”) is one of the famous dishes in the Haitian culture. It is served on special occasions or parties. Griot is fried pork shoulder, served with fried plantains and sometimes salad with some pikliz, a spicy coleslaw. Griot doesn’t particularly have to be pork; it could be any meat of your choice, since not everyone eats pork.

Simple Scones, Two Ways (Plus Toppings!)

Simple Scones, Two Ways (Plus Toppings!)

March 29, 2019

On weekend mornings, all I want is something warm, rich, and easy to make. Both of these scone recipes are just that. British-style scones are less sweet and less rich, so that they can be spread with generous amounts of jam and cream later on. Their American counterparts are sweet, buttery, and endlessly customizable. When adding mix-ins, think chocolate chips, raspberries, chopped nuts, dried fruit, etc.

Cambridge’s Best Hot Chocolate

Cambridge’s Best Hot Chocolate

March 2, 2019

To truly define what makes a good cup of hot chocolate, I think the biggest two factors are price point and quality. This is why, to find the best hot chocolate in Cambridge, I tried three differently priced hot chocolates to see which one had the best combination of flavor and value.
