Bagels That Chew

Growing up on the west coast, I didn’t have a proper New York bagel until I visited for work in my 20’s. I may have had one when we went for my aunt’s wedding when I was 8, but my only strong memories of that visit are 1- The rats in our hotel room and...

The Perfect Fluffy Molasses Cookie

I brought 2 bottles of American molasses when I moved to England in July of 2018. That much barely got me through to Christmas.

Gluten Free Battenberg Without Much Fuss

Until I moved here, I never really appreciated just how often the English drink tea. Morning cuppa? Sure! But a mid-afternoon hot drink, or a jolt of caffeine just before bed never occurred to me. In the 2 ½ years since I came to the UK, I think I’ve had more tea than in my...
