Blissful buttermilk carrot cake bursts with flavor
I just adore carrot cake. In fact, I've almost never met a carrot cake that I didn't love, but some are still better than others. It's really just a matter of degrees for me. But this one is my favorite and the best I've tasted yet! I found this one in my old recipe ...By Susie Iventosch

Pickled onions and feta perfectly complement pulled lamb ragu
One Sunday last year, I was taking a stroll and came across a new restaurant near our house. After perusing the menu, I immediately ordered the pulled lamb sandwich that caught my eye. I'd never really had "pulled" lamb, although I've tried plenty of pulled pork and ...By Susie Iventosch

This cake is rich, dense, and definitely very chocolaty. Made with a full pound of bittersweet chocolate, eggs, a little sugar and Amaretto, it is decadent and delicious. We love to serve it with raspberry coulis and a dollop of vanilla whipped cream. The original cake ...By Susie Iventosch

Gluten-free arepas offer rich corn flavor as counterpoint to gooey mozzarella filling
When I saw these enticing corn-based snacks at a street fair in New York City last fall, I just couldn't pass them up! Anything made with corn has my number, but these also had a delicious, gooey mozzarella filling and the combination was delicious. They were like two ...By Susie Iventosch

Cream cheese-filled chocolate cupcakes make a delectable duo dessert
I used to make black bottom cupcakes with my grandmother when I was a kid, and remember loving them so much. Being both a chocolate and cheesecake lover, I guess that's not such a huge surprise. But I recently learned that I'd never made these delicious treats for my ...By Susie Iventosch

Crispy, fluffy air-fried falafel perfect for New Year's resolutions
We love falafel, but since most falafel is fried in oil, we have rarely eaten it . until now! That's where the magic of the air fryer comes in. It's a game changer in my opinion, because it doesn't need all of that extra oil to make the falafel crispy. We are so happy, ...By Susie Iventosch

The perfect pastry pairing for a morning coffee pick-me-up
I love it when cafes offer rugelach among their pastry selection, because they are the perfect sweet bite to pair with coffee. They've always reminded me of the cinnamon roll-ups my mom used to make with leftover pie dough, but rugelach dough is made with cream cheese ...By Susie Iventosch

This delicious delicacy helps folks dive into decadent sauces
We love a good naan and it's hard to beat when you go to a restaurant that has this delicious item on the menu. Hot out of the skillet, naan is the perfect implement for scooping up sauces - especially curry sauces, but really any good sauce that's worth savoring ...By Susie Iventosch

Simple way to bring delicious vitamin-packed winter squash to the table
Maybe we should first start by explaining what the heck is a carnival squash? It's a relative newcomer in the squash world, developed in 1991. Although not as commonly seen in the markets as its cousins, acorn, delicata, butternut, or other more familiar squashes, it ...By Susie Iventosch

Strawberry fans will fall in love with this luscious layer cake
I recently had a visit with one of my friends, who had just come from a bicycle tour in Natchez, Mississippi. She asked me if I'd ever had strawberry layer cake. Apparently it is a famous dessert in Mississippi (I've yet to visit Mississippi), and she couldn't get ...By Susie Iventosch

Sage brown butter sauce accents fall flavors in this gnocchi dish
This is a fun dish to make, especially at this time of year when cranberries and pumpkins are in season and the fall flavors are all the rage. We love brown butter in almost anything, but this sage brown butter complements the pumpkin and cranberries so well, I ...By Susie Iventosch

Fall is in the air and that means it's time for pumpkin recipes! So how about some pumpkin butter? It's really just like apple butter, only made with pumpkin pure, brown sugar, pure maple syrup, spices, vanilla and a little splash of apple juice. It's tasty with ...By Susie Iventosch

Finely ground nuts a perfect swap in gluten-free salmon cakes
These salmon cakes are so tasty - and gluten-free, too. No one in our family has gluten issues, but being a food columnist, and cooking for a large group this past summer with a variety of dietary restrictions, I realized that I needed to step up my GF game! I haven't ...By Susie Iventosch
