We cook at home pretty much every night thanks to having a dog with separation anxiety. Usually it’s a mix of new recipes, repeats and staples that need no recipe. We typically need some leftovers for lunch and a variety of meat or veggie mains. It feels like we made a lot of new recipes this week but maybe I’ll start a tally have a better sense of the crazy.
Linzer everything! Mainly tortes and cookies. Mostly torte. The torte makes the most Linzer. And during the season of giving, it’s best to give lots of Linzer.
Are you still craving pumpkin pie? Maybe you want want more dessert but would like to mix things up a little. Maybe you’ve had your fill and are no longer tempted by the leftover dessert selection… this should do the trick.
Not as shortbready as a pure shortbread cookie but there’s lots of butter flavor. Plus peaches and some crumble on top, it’s so good. Remember to share.
Corn Chowder without all the stewing and thickening seems easy and perfect.
Seeing the cast iron skillet in SK photos I wanted to do the same but I think hers is an inch or two larger than mine. Learn from my mistakes, go big on the pan. Also I entirely forgot the apple cider vinegar and didn’t even notice until it came time to clean up. I’d pulled out the vinegar, put the measuring cup next to it and turned away, so I’ll call it optional. If / when I make this again I’ll try it out next time and share the results.
My love for Smitten Kitchen is no secret, but it’s nice to find that other people love her too. I don’t remember ever making the SK version but once Une Gamine Dans La Cuisine added Rosemary it was a memorable hit with me!
Trying to keep things seasonal I’m excited to be cooking with berries again! But trying to keep things cheap I’m hesitant to buy a pint or so of blueberries so instead I used the frozen blueberries already in my freezer to no ill effects.
The other awesome thing about this cake, it’s so easy to make. Perfect when you’re feeling lazy and need something relatively large. You could go with fresh blueberries since it is the season, but if you have a bag already sitting in your freezer… why not make it lazy and cheap!
The recipe is all over the web, of course I found this on Smitten Kitchen. She really is my go to site for recipes.
Sometimes you find a recipe and it should not be changed! It’s perfect, an instant favorite. And a favorite 100 times after that.
There’s no point in me rewriting perfection! But maybe I’ll share my favorites with you.

Perfection! So long as you do the flaky sea salt step!
