This is one of several variations on basic oatmeal from Good and Cheap. I love this one for many reasons, not least of which is because it reminds me of my dear friend, Sarah Chan who loves all things baklava. We once made a little cookbook together that we self-published called Velo Fare. The recipes were based on the local markets that we loved to visit together by bicycle. We made pistachio pancakes with baklava syrup for that book. That made me realize that the flavors of baklava are pretty accessible and should be a bigger part of our lives—like in our oatmeal!
Here’s a heavily spiced pumpkin pie with brown sugar and a simple short crust. And it’s MUCH easier than I thought.
I know it’s late! I know you probably have your Thanksgiving plans carved into stone tablets already BUT if any of you are like me and are putting things together last minute for whatever reason… well here is my favorite pumpkin pie recipe! I came up with it for a fun video I did for NYU a couple of years ago making pie with then NYU President John Sexton. And I shared the recipe then. But this year’s version is both better and easier.
Chocolate and orange is such an incredible flavour combination, and yet I forget about it until the holidays each year. Sometimes I think holidays are made just to snap us out of our routines and remind us that there is so much more to life!
I know everyone has their own holiday baking traditions, but since I love you all I wanted to share a couple of mine. So here is the first, and I’ll share a couple more in the next few days. (I’d be so delighted if you would share your favorite holiday treats in the comments here!)
NOTE: I have a newer, simpler, arguably better version of this recipe. I recommend making that one instead!
A few weeks back I got a call from NYU. Would I like to teach the NYU President to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving? On camera? And it’ll help to promote the NYU combined campaign, which raises money for local non-profits? Done and done. Keep reading
