Pistachio-Rose Cake from the City of Roses

Teacake du jour: baklava-inspired! Equal parts hazelnut meal and AP flour, pistachios, extra butter and egg for richness, sweetened with @portlandsyrups Rose Cordial and @oldbluerawhoney bigleaf maple honey, studded with pistachios. When it came out of the oven I soaked it in @thomasandsonsdistillery White Rose […]

Tea Loaf of the Week

Tea loaf of the week! Lemon-poppyseed buttermilk cake with lemon peel that I candied for holiday baking. I’ll serve it with rhubarb-carrot marmalade at my writers’ group this evening. #ambaking #whenlifegivesyoulemons #cake A post shared by Heather Arndt Anderson (@heatherarndtanderson) on May 25, 2017 at […]

Chocolate Chip-Marmalade Bread

Baked a loaf of my favorite chocolate chip-marmalade bread for this rainy spring day.

Dutch baby Monte Cristo

Who says a Dutch baby must be a sweet vehicle for jam and syrup? Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that, it’s just a little predictable. With a base so eggy, it may as well be an omelet. Once it’s deflated like some kind […]

Gooey Orange Sticky Buns

Today is New Year’s Eve, and instead of planning a healthy regime change in 2012 I am doing the opposite. I say: more bread. More dessert. More DIY sticky-icky. I’m bringing butter and eggs and gluten back. I’m bringing the old bitch back. And if […]

Obi non and news

I always fiddle with ingredients and dishes, but rarely (I hope) to the point that they are unrecognizable by their forebears. This breakfast is one of those rare failures at respectful fusion: a tender Uzbek obi non; an ancient flatbread baked in a clay¬†tandir — […]

Pizza Bolognese

Sorry for the dead air for the past…oh, my. It’s been a month. I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire right now (including some projects for print), and this just fell off my radar. But it’s summer! And the garden is full! This […]

Dutch Baby

Dutch babies are a signature dish of one old Portland institution, the Original Pancake House. When you order one, they bring it out all puffed up on the plate, sprinkled with powdered sugar and with a little carousel of toppings: whipped butter, lemon wedges and […]

Biscuits and Andouille Gravy-Poached Eggs

Once upon a childless time, the ache in my back and shoulders was reserved for weekend chores, for accomplishment. It was earned by moving 10 cubic yards of compost and manure, shovelful by endless shovelful. This ache is now ever-present, and I gaze out my […]

Nettle-Mushroom Pie with Pine Nuts

All this cold rain has the nettles taking their sweet time, but in my spot, they’re up a little. They’re up enough, anyway, about three nodes or so, and I snip off the top two and slip them in my bag. Zephyr whines from his […]
