Like I wrote in my review for this Quince Paste recipe, I love quince. I love them so much—and they’re so hard to find most of the time in the U.S.—that we planted a quince tree in our yard. This was the first year that our tree produced a bumper crop, so I was thrilled to be… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a professionally trained baker/pastry chef and also, as a friend would say, an intrepid eater. My favorite foodie character in literature? Ben Gunn, the marooned pirate in "Treasure Island": "You mightn't happen to have a piece of cheese about you, now? No? Well, many's the long night I've dreamed of cheese—toasted, mostly—and woke up again, and here I were."
My favorite things to cook
Laminated doughs. Elaborate dishes that require a day of prep work. Comfort foods, spicy foods, all kinds of food. (Although I am also happy eating a bowl of cereal.)

Animal Crackers
My kids loved these. They aren't sweet, but taste nice and oaty. The dough's easy to work with and can be rolled and rerolled as much as necessary.

Fresh Cherry Crisp
I made this using fresh sour cherries. We enjoyed it, but I felt the ratio was backwards--it was about 1/3 fruit, 2/3 topping. I like my fruit crisps a lot heavier on the fruit. Oh, and I baked it in a 10-inch square pan; I don't think the cherries would've come close to filling a 9x13-inch dish. I cut the sugar in the filling to about 1 1/4 cups, and in the topping to 3/4 cup since I like some tartness in fruit desserts. I added a pinch of salt to the filling and topping, too, and used all butter (about 3/4 cup). Tasty with ice cream.

Mancakes
GREAT. We all enjoyed these—even two little kids (who had plain maple syrup on top of theirs, not spiked). The skillet in which I cooked the bacon got pretty dark, so rather than using it to cook the scallions, I just added them to the bowl with the butter and microwaved 'em until the butter melted. I used less than half a cup, just because I didn't have enough scallions. I also used ancho chile powder in the syrup because I didn't have chipotle. This was a fun Father's Day breakfast—kind of a special-occasion splurge, like biscuits and gravy.
