March 18, 2019

Stefin and Andrea are reunited in London, where they’ve kept busy with Pancake Day festivities, and a puff pastry class at Borough Market’s Bread Ahead baking school. They’ve also got wildly different reviews of last week’s Milk Chocolate Pots with Citrus Shortbread, and are looking forward to baking together for the first time since July when they tackle this week’s bake along: Chocolate and Salted Pistachio Babka Buns from The Boy Who Bakes. Finally, the duo take a deep dive into natural and alternative sweeteners.

Ep 115: Salted Chocolate Sophisticate

March 11, 2019

Andrea’s cardamom obsession is fueled by a recent listener-suggested recipe for Banana Cardamom Update-Down Cake from King Arthur Flour, and Stefin’s got some desserts that appeared “Previously on Preheated” that would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Then it’s on to a review of Tartine's Salted Chocolate Rye Cookies – were these a hit with the younger set, or an indulgence for adult tastebuds? Next the hosts introduce this week’s bake along: Milk Chocolate Pots with Citrus Shortbread from BBC Good Food, which may be the epitome of an Andrea dessert: just a few ingredients, four steps, shortbread, citrus, smaller batch … too bad about the dreaded jug! Finally, your hosts answer the call for Kitchen Safety 101 during a short segment designed to keep you safe and sane in your happy place.

Ep 114: Crazy for Chocolate

Ep 114: Crazy for Chocolate

March 4, 2019

Inspired by Andrea's daughter who said "Mom, can't you just make something chocolate?" this month is going to be chock-full of chocolate delights. A Salted Chocolate Rye Cookie from Tartine Bakery has the hosts very excited about cooking with an alternative and new-to-them flour. Andrea reports on her Black Bottom Oatmeal Pie from the prior week, which resulted in the smoothest and easiest pie crust she's ever made, although the final pie wasn't enough of a "wow" to offset the amount of work it took.
