Ep 107: On a (Potato) Roll

January 14, 2019

Andrea and Stefin are on a roll with their “19 for ‘19” baking resolutions, and have several on their list from their inspired listeners. In the duo’s review of the Yukon Gold Potato Cinnamon Rolls, you may be surprised to hear who mussed the mash, and who failed to rise (and who got a sweet potato treat). Then it’s time for next week’s challenge: a baked donut filled with … spinach (!?). Yep, the Baked Spinach Lemon Donuts with Lemon Glaze from Veggie Desserts is putting this month's theme to the test. Will this be truly tasty or truly bizarre? Finally, Andrea fills us in on how to host a cookbook swap, if clearing clutter is on your list of new year’s resolutions.

Ep 106: Eat Your Veggies

January 7, 2019

Our hosts start with a quick update on their 2018 Resolutions. Andrea shares her discovery of a 1-2-3-4 cake as a new favorite template recipe, and details the glories of her newly purged and cleaned pantry. Stefin gives an update on her recipe organization system and regales us with her success of baking more bread throughout the year. Stay tuned for a Nineteen for 2019 Resolution List the hosts will use to guide their baking throughout the year.

This month is all about Eating Your Veggies...we're talking about adding beans, beets and even spinach to the treats this month in a quest to get Five a Day. First up is a Yukon Gold Potato Cinnamon Roll from Bon Appétit that Stefin last made back in 2009. Will this recipe stand up to the test of time almost 10 years later? Finally, our hosts talk about some new food trends for 2019 that they're excited about, and some they're happy to see fall by the wayside.

Ep 105.5: A Pudding Worth Singing About

December 31, 2018

It's the final (bonus!) episode of 2018! Andrea and Stefin share listeners' reasons for baking: From stress relief to time with family to creating quality treats (not to mention showing off -- just a little!) it's a heartfelt list of "whys." Then, the duo sing the praises of that Victorian classic, Figgy Pudding from Geoff and Vicky Wells. Andrea loved her Instant Pot version, and Stefin was equally enamored of her traditional stove-top pudding. No wonder someone wrote a song about this rich and delicious holiday treat! Finally, the duo each award a coveted Preheated Blue Ribbon to the tipsy treat they most enjoyed this month. Happy New Year!

Ep 105: Chilled Souffle Falls Short

December 24, 2018

Merry Christmas (Eve)! Stefin and Andrea are busy with boozy hot chocolate, a peanut-buttery Happy People Fudge variation, a Borough Market #cookingwithclass update (and an easy but sophisticated last-minute gift idea), and an appearance on Episode 27 of the Christmas Past podcast! Speaking of fruitcake, check out Andrea's friend's famous recipe, now available on preheatedpodcast.com. Then it's time for a review of the Good Housekeeping UK's Chilled Chocolate & Whiskey Souffles with Salted Butterscotch Sauce. Frustrations abounded on both sides of the Atlantic -- from wrestling with parchment "collars" to finding rubber bands -- but how did it taste? Next up, it's that Victorian favorite, Figgy Pudding, from Geoff and Vicky Wells. Whether you bake along on the stovetop with Stefin, or in your Instant Pot with Andrea, we're hoping this traditional treat leads to a delicious dessert ... and plenty of singing! Finally, Preheaters around the world share their holiday baking traditions -- from cinnamon rolls to cookies, pie to pizza -- it's certainly a festive season in listeners' kitchens.

Ep 104: Irish Cream with a Side of Drama

December 17, 2018

It’s a dramatic week in Tipsy Treats Town: Andrea’s running out for whiskey at 8 a.m., Stefin’s blender is exploding in a shower of sparks, and Andrea’s dog gets a tipsy treat of his own after a kitchen mishap. It takes a special recipe to overcome all that craziness: Is A Cozy Kitchen’s Homemade Irish Cream worth it? And will next week’s Chilled Chocolate Whiskey Soufflé with Salted Butterscotch Sauce be less theatrical? Finally, the duo chat about the many ways to repurpose the fruit from your homemade liqueurs this month (hidden in a crumble, on a cheeseboard, warmed over ice cream, or simply popped into your mouth!) as well as several you may want to make for last-minute gifts: merry maraschino cherries inspired by Stefin's brother, and a classic rumpot from Nancy Leson.

Andrea's taste testing her Bailey's in anticipation of this week's bake along: The Homemade Irish Cream from A Cozy Kitchen. Then fasten your seat belts for the Globetrotting Gourmet, where Stefin shares tales of a recent trip to Ireland.

Ep 102: Tipsy Treats

December 3, 2018

It's the first December episode; Stefin's singing and Andrea's reminiscing about life-size gingerbread houses. And that's before the Tipsy Treats start flowing! Dive right in to the festivities with your favorite baking duo to learn how to budget and plan for recipes that require an above-average amount of alcohol (one tip: shop the bottom shelf!). Then it's on to the month's first "brew along": An historic Cherry Bounce from Cathy Barrow at the Washington Post. Rumored to be George Washington's favorite tipple, this classic cherry liqueur is straightforward, but does need a few weeks of curing time. Start now for Christmas gifting! And speaking of gifting, the hosts take a deep dive into why so many of us are happy to add baking to our already jam-packed holiday schedules. Whether it's the joy of tradition, entertaining, or giving a heartfelt gift, are you among the 73% of bakers who feel a "higher level of baking excitement" this time of year?

Ep 100: Bagels and Royal Blue Ribbons

November 19, 2018

This week's review is the Very Good Bagel, Easy-ish Too from Alexandra Stafford and both our hosts are roundly pleased with the results! The bake along this week is a Sweet Potato Pie inspired by Patti LaBelle from the food blog What's Gaby Cooking. Neither of our hosts has ever made a sweet potato pie (although they've certainly clocked in some time eating them!) so they're both pretty excited about this recipe.

Listen to the show to find out listeners' favorite recipe from the first 100 episodes, and Andrea and Stefin's picks for their Season Two Blue Ribbons (Hint: It's a Royal Blue Ribbon for both our hosts this time!). And you won't want to miss a sweet tribute from the duo's very first bake-along listener, Vickie.
