Wake and Bake: Orange Honey Muffins with Dates

If something has dates in it, I'll probably buy it. It's kind of like Beyoncé and sequins: We just can't help ourselves. I love that dates are such concentrated flavor vehicles. They satisfy my sweet tooth while seeming relatively healthy. The one catch is that baked goods containing dates can unfortunately be hit or miss. Too often the dates inside my scone or muffin are hard little nuggets that give dried figs a run for their money in the "I so want you to be good but alas you taste like a rock" category. More

Let Them Eat: Orange Kiss-Me Cake

Orange Kiss-Me Cake appears in our files as "kugelhopf" though it in no way resembles the Alsatian brioche-cake delicacy. The cake is actually the very same recipe that won Ms. Lily Wuebel of Redwood City, CA the $25,000 grand prize at the second Pillsbury Bake-Off contest in 1950. Orange Kiss-Me Cake featured, naturally, Pillsbury flour and the showstopper: a whole orange, ground to a pulp in a food processor along with walnuts and raisins. More

Preserved: Rhubarb Orange Vanilla Jam

It always seems like rhubarb season is over as soon as it starts. The thick, fat stalks that were at my market just a few weeks ago have dwindled down to a few spindly stems. Before they disappeared entirely, I wanted to make one last batch of jam that put rhubarb in the front seat and really showcased its tart flavor. More

Preserved: Vanilla-Orange Marmalade

I'm obsessed with making jam. But in the winter, the fruit selection at most supermarkets is limited. Oranges are just about the only thing in season. Homemade marmalade is bright, sweet, and bursting with citrus flavor. It tastes like the juiciest orange you ever ate, only slathered over buttered bread. Yum. More
