Pie of the Week: Banana Nutella Cardamom Handpies

While pie's handheld variety hasn't seen the national spotlight quite like other baked goods, here in the South the pocket pie is something of a regional treasure. The name might be up for discussion, but whether you call them hand pies, pocket pies, or fried pies, this Southern staple has all the hallmarks of a perfect picnic treat, and these banana Nutella cardamom pocket pies are no exception.

Cookie Monster: Shortbread Sandwiches

I've recently become a full-time coupon clipper. I used to do it haphazardly, but in all honestly it was mostly limited to bringing in the voucher for a free pair of Victoria's Secret underwear or stealing the 10% off coupons that Banana Republic sent my mother in the mail. Those actually seemed like value plays—who doesn't want free cheeky bikinis?—whereas remembering to bring in the 50 cent coupon for bananas wasn't worth my time. More

International Face Off: Nutella

Have you ever noticed how some products that we have at home just seem to taste better abroad? Cadbury chocolate, Fage Greek yogurt, and Coca-Cola all taste better overseas or simply below the border. For me, this question becomes most pressing regarding Nutella, the Italian chocolate-hazelnut spread that is akin to my personal crack. More

Chocoholic: Flourless Nutella Chocolate Torte

One of the advantages of running your own restaurant is that premium ingredients are just a phone call away. But when I placed orders for my bakery, Desserticus, I routinely lost all self control. Every week it was like Christmas in the kitchen when the delivery driver finished dropping off boxes of European butter, cheese, and gourmet chocolate. This habit usually put a big hurtin' on my wallet. (I guess some girls like shoes. I like butter). More

Bravetart: How To Make Crunchy Nutella at Home

After using my culinary time machine to rip a hole in the fabric of the kitchen space-time continuum, I visited an alternate universe where I discovered Brown Butter Soft Batch Cookies. The responsible time/dimensional traveler would have turned back; patched up the rift and come home straight away. And I promise, I'll do just that. But as long as we're here, I want one more souvenir. You see, I discovered the alternate-universe's Nutella, like peanut butter, comes in both crunchy and creamy. More

Cakespy: Nutella-Filled Shortbread Cookies

If there's anything better than a deliciously crumbly shortbread cookie, it's one that is stuffed with rich, creamy, chocolate-and-hazelnut-laden Nutella. I'm tempted to deem these the perfect lunchbox treat for back-to-schoolers, but really they're the ideal mid-day pick me up for anyone. More

A Guide to Italian Candy

Italy's known for its food, of course—pizza, pasta, prosciutto; ciabatta, cannoli, cappellini; you get the idea. But what about candy? No matter what country we end up in, we can't resist browsing the candy aisle at the local grocery stores. So I hit up a Milan supermarket and, besides the expected Kinder Bueno, came away with pocket coffee, instant gelato, a Nutella-breadstick-tea hybrid, and an awful lot more. More
