TWD: BWJ Nectarine Upside-Down Chiffon Cake

Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for this week is Nectarine Upside-down Chiffon Cake. I looked over the recipe a week ago, read some of the other baker’s comments here, and then promptly became disinterested.  I can’t tell you for sure why I wasn’t excited about this recipe but maybe it is because the recipe alone takes … Read more

Weekend RoundUP August 25, 2012

I love fall and it is quickly finding its way across the country.  In my neck of the woods the temperatures are falling at night into the low 60’s.  How glorious for the inner child in me, who continues to regularly play with matches 🙂  And while my menopausal mind longs for the coolness of … Read more

TWD:BWJ Blueberry Nectarine Pie

Nectarines and blueberries.  Do you think that is a weird combination?  I didn’t, until after I made this pie and my family said, “why mess up a delicious blueberry pie by putting nectarines in it?  Good question!  What do the nectarines bring to the table and add to the pie?  Hmmm … let me think. … Read more

It’s Tuesdays With Dorie.  That usually means I join some 400+ other bakers and whip up a fun and awesome recipe from Dorie Greenspan’s book, Baking With Julia.  The recipes in the book are based on the PBS series hosted by Julia Child.  Baking with Julia presents an extraordinary assemblage of talent, knowledge, and artistry from the new generation of bakers whose vision is so much a part of this book. The list of contributors reads like a Who’s Who of today’s master bakers, including Flo Braker, Steve Sullivan, Marcel Desaulniers,  Alice Medrich, Nancy Silverton, Martha Stewart, including Nick Malgieri, who is the contributing Baker for this week’s Semolina Bread.
Semolina bread features semolina flour, typically associated with Italian baking because semolina flour is milled from durum wheat, the flour used to make pasta.  Unfortunately you won’t find even one picture from me.  I looked at Kroger’s, I stopped by two different Wal-mart Super Stores, a health food store, and even a Food Lion.  No semolina.
