A rich, moist gingerbread cake for Christmas
There is no subtle way to say this. This cake screams Christmas.
To start with, it's gingerbread, the aroma alone of which is embedded in the definition of this holiday. That aroma, of course, is paired with an ultra-rich, moist cake that is at once dense, but also light. Then there is the sugar crisp caramelized sides of the cake, which only build to the tender, sweet lemony pear slices that crown the cake.
An easy, hearty dinner for when you deck the halls
Here's the thing about decorating for Christmas. It should be fun. It should be an occasion. It should involve delicious food.
Drinks to warm the heart on cold winter nights
If any of you were members of the Berea Band Boosters during the 1970s or ’80s, you will remember a member named Auldon Parker.
Auldon was such a delight to all of us who worked the many cold ball games with him in the concession stands. I will always admire him for how well organized was.

A bowl of comfort: Chicken soup with dumplings
A basic chicken soup is fine for when you need warmth and comfort. But what about those particularly blustery fall evenings when fine isn't sufficient? For those evenings, we have created this more robust take on the basic chicken soup, a version that oozes even more comfort and warmth thanks to the starches and savory ingredients.
Moist, rich egg bread studded with seeds for fall
When baking season brings thoughts of savory loaves of bread hot from the oven, we often overlook egg breads. But these rich, moist — and yes, eggy — loaves deserve serious consideration. They are satisfying in a way we typically associate with quick sweet breads, yet are versatile enough to accompany dinner and make delicious sandwiches.
A healthy muffin with a sweet (potato) side
When I told my mother — a fiend for candied ginger — that I was testing a batch of these muffins, she said she wished she could fly right over and dig in. She's not the only one.
A pumpkin bread that can handle any add-in
For me, nothing signifies the end of summer as poetically and viscerally as seeing pumpkins in a patch. One look at that field and I start salivating for all of my favorite pumpkin dishes.
A pear crisp with a savory-sweet-spicy aroma
Ground cardamom gives this simple fall-friendly crisp a sweet-spicy flavor that you will smell as much as taste. Don't worry too much about which type of oats to use in a recipe such as this. Though we prefer old fashioned rolled oats, feel free to use the "quick" variety if that's what you happen to have. The differences won't be tremendous.
