Wake and Bake: Peach Walnut Strudel

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Just the other day I thought, man, I wish that I could roll into my local coffee shop and get a piece of really excellent strudel. Since I can't, I had to make it myself. More

Bake the Book: Date Walnut Muffins

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

Quit pretending the muffin-shaped cake you picked up this morning is doing you any nutritional favors, and try these date walnut muffins from Mad Hungry Cravings. Whole wheat flour makes them filling, dates make them sweet. Add walnuts for crunch and you're good to go. More

Bake the Book: Coffee Can Date-Nut Bread

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

This bare-bones recipe comes from chef Kim Severson's mother, Ann, who cleverly used coffee cans to package and ship loaves of this date-nut bread to Kim at college every Thanksgiving. More

Preserved: White Chocolate Walnut Butter

Preserved Lucy Baker 1 comment

Since I write a column about preserves, I always have a variety of jams to choose from. And yet I always pair them with the same peanut butter. But delicious as Skippy Creamy is, it was time to change things up. With walnuts. And white chocolate. More

Wake and Bake: Chocolate Walnut Povitica

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I had never heard of this bread before, but when you suddenly have enough of something to feed a small army, you do a little research. Generically known as a "nut roll," povitica is an Eastern European yeasted bread made from a buttery, brioche-like dough rolled around a sugar and nut filling. This version, made with chocolate and walnuts, is a little time intensive to prepare but totally sweet and satisfying in the end. More

Cookie Monster: Raw Honey Date Sesame Balls

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

I'll warn you now that these make me think of silly romantic things like warm summer sunsets over the Aegean. But hey, honey + Medjool dates will do that to you. More

Wake and Bake: Raw Carrot Cake "Muffins"

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

Raw sweets, like the more popular no-bake desserts, rely on a hint of magic to transform plain ingredients into something awesome. The trick here is that a mixture of dates, carrots, raisins, and walnuts tastes almost scarily like carrot cake muffins. More

Wake and Bake: Chocolate Walnut Espresso Loaf

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Bitterness has its own kind of allure. Black coffee. Dark chocolate. Citrus peel. And to honor that, I made this Chocolate Walnut Espresso Loaf. It's not very sweet, but addictive all the same. More

Cookie Monster: Carrot Cake Cookies

These cookies are a nice compromise. All the flavors of carrot cake are there, but in much more manageable portions. More

Bake the Book: Cherry-Walnut Scones

Caroline Russock Post a comment

Even though it's really just a matter of measuring out the ingredients, shaping the scones, and baking, the return is big. These are wonderfully crumbly-tender scones riddled with chunks of walnut and sweet-tart dried cherries. They're topped off with crunchy turbinado sugar and just a pinch of salt. More

Wake and Bake: Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

I had breakfast flings with everything from strawberry frosted Pop Tarts to Honey Bunches of Oats, but the dish I always came back to was Quaker Oats Instant Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal. This is partly because my father continued to buy boxes of this oatmeal week after week—I believe it's on perma-sale at the Shop Rite in Hackensack, NJ in case anyone is interested. Someone had to eat all that oatmeal, and that someone was me. More

Preserved: Walnut-Thyme Honey

Preserved Lucy Baker Post a comment

I love to give people edible, homemade gifts for the holidays, so I was excited to see that the December issue of Bon Appetit included a whole article on the subject ("A Very DIY Holiday"). I was particularly intrigued by their Walnut-Thyme Honey with olive oil, lemon zest, and dried chilies. More

Edible DIY: Maple Walnut Graham Crackers

Lucy Baker 4 comments

These graham crackers are crunchy, toothsome, and just a smidge sweet. They really do taste like a punched-up version of the store-bought kind. The hints of walnuts and maple syrup make me want to slather them with cream cheese, but they would be equally delicious sandwiched with chocolate and marshmallows, or served in lieu of a biscuit with coffee or tea.
