Cassandra's Year Of Birthday Cakes

Cassandra's Year Of Birthday Cakes

In 2017 I made a little deal with myself, I wanted to make all of my family’s birthday cakes (thanks, Ina Garten and Barefoot Contessa for the inspiration). I enjoy baking with my kids and thought that letting them help with their own cakes would create some great memories and foster their love for cooking and baking. The birthday cakes weren’t perfect works of art, but they were prepared with love - so they tasted even better!

In The Kitchen - Jalapeño Margaritas

Kids are almost done with school, Father’s Day is this weekend and it’s finally starting to feel like summertime in NY. I thought it would be a good time to share one of our favorite summer drinks – courtesy of Ina Garten and my husband Brad - Jalapeño Margaritas. Brad loves spicy food. Loves it. So years ago, when I first got my hands on Ina’s Make It Ahead cookbook, I was thrilled to find her Jalapeño Margaritas recipe...

New Product - Pillivuyt Round Tart Dish

During this time of year we spend a lot of time entertaining or preparing food to take with us to parties or get-togethers. Our new Pillivuyt Round Tart Dish has been getting a lot of holiday love. Pillivuty pieces are known for their even heat conduction, versatility, and durability. In Cooking For Jeffrey, Ina Garten uses it to make Prune Armagnac Clafouti. Whether breakfast, brunch, dinner or just desserts, we think this dish will be an all-star in the kitchen.
