Morning Glory Muffins

Years ago, I lived near a great little coffee shop in Danvers, Massachusetts called the Custom Cup Caffe.  Every Friday on my way into work, one of my weekly rituals was to stop and treat myself to a cup of their terrific coffee and one of their even-more-terrific Morning Glory Muffins. A few years ago […]

Sour Cream Pudding Cake

This Sour Cream Pudding Cake bakes up light and spongy on top with a rich, sweet, syrupy, caramel, raisin and walnut sauce on the bottom.  It’s heavenly! Long before we started writing A Family Feast – and long before so much information was easy to find online – I used to clip recipes from newspaper […]

Sweet Potato and Apple Cake

A few weeks ago, my husband Jack traveled to South Carolina for a business trip, and the group he traveled with went out to dinner every night during the trip. Jack and I were on the tail end of our Whole30 program (you can read more about that here) – so enjoying a dessert after […]

Carrot Salad

We developed this Carrot Salad recipe as part of our ongoing Ambassadorship with Peapod.  All opinions are 100% mine. After a long, cold winter – it thrills me to see all kinds of fresh, colorful produce in the market again, now that Spring is here! This Carrot Salad recipe is a delicious way to cook […]

Polish Babka

Yesterday, we shared a fancier, dessert-suitable version of a babka – but today’s Polish Babka is more in line with the kind that I remember eating on holidays at my grandmother’s house. Babka – a soft, dense cross between a cake and a bread – is traditionally baked for Easter Sunday in Poland. It has […]

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Babka

Earlier this year, I read somewhere that 2016 is ‘the year of the babka’ so we’re jumping on the bandwagon! Babka is a sweet yeast cake similar in texture to a brioche, but there are actually many different versions of babka around! Today’s recipe – a Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Babka – is more akin to […]

Nanny’s Rum Raisin Sugar Cookies

When people find out that we’re food bloggers, my husband Jack and I are often asked if we eat all of the food we make to share here on A Family Feast. We do eat some of it of course, but we’re fortunate enough to live fairly close to Jack’s parents (you may remember us […]

Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

We first made this Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread last summer when our crop of zucchini was exploding out in our garden! But thanks to the year-round availability of zucchini at the supermarket – this hearty and delicious bread can be made any time inspiration strikes! This whole wheat zucchini bread is wonderfully dense – but […]

Rookie Cookies

This recipe for Rookie Cookies is from my mother’s old recipe box – and like all of the older recipes we’ve been recreating from her collection – we try to research the origin or background of these old classic recipes whenever we can! So what a surprise…after doing a Google search on “Rookie Cookies,” we […]

Mexican Bread Pudding

We’re finishing up the week with a perfect dessert for your Cinco de Mayo celebration – Mexican Bread Pudding! This simple-to-make recipe has incredible flavor and it’s so good, we’ll be making it year round at our house! This Mexican Bread Pudding is different from most in that it is not a custard based bread […]

Oatmeal Raisin Ice Cream

My husband Jack LOVES oatmeal raisin cookies!  Of all of the possible types of cookies – if he had his choice – Jack would choose oatmeal raisin!  So knowing Jack’s favorite dessert, a few years ago for a special holiday dinner, I made this delicious Oatmeal Raisin Ice Cream.  And as a special treat last […]

Baked Apple and Cheddar Purses

Do you remember that fantastic pizza dough recipe we shared last week?  (If you missed it – check it out here!)  That same pizza dough is so versatile, it can be used to make many more recipes than just pizza – including these delicious Baked Apple and Cheddar Purses! These lightly sweet, baked apple and […]

Apple and Cheddar Baked French Toast

Over the holidays, we usually have some out-of-town family that stays overnight at our house – so we like to prepare a nice breakfast! This recipe for Apple and Cheddar Baked French Toast is a great breakfast or brunch option that any guest will love! This apple and cheddar baked French toast is a warm […]

Fennel and Apple Slaw

Fresh locally-grown fennel has made an appearance at our farmer’s market, and this Fennel and Apple Slaw is a great way to enjoy this wonderful root vegetable! There are different types of fennel – and it’s technically an herb – but the fennel typically found in local produce sections at the supermarket is called Florence […]

Waldorf Salad

As teenagers, my sister Regina and I both tried out for our high school play – the classic musical “Anything Goes” by Cole Porter. We had to learn a number of songs and dances and, to this day, I still remember many of the lyrics from that show! One song we learned, “You’re The Top,” […]

Cinnamon Rolls with Bourbon-Soaked Raisins

This recipe for Cinnamon Rolls with Bourbon-Soaked Raisins is a really delicious option for a special holiday breakfast or brunch.  A filling of sweet brown sugar, cinnamon and bourbon-soaked raisins is rolled between a light and delicious pastry.  Then, a sweet and light confectioner’s sugar glaze is poured on top of the rolls soon after […]

Pineapple Raisin Sauce

Like many families, a baked ham is often on the menu for holiday dinners at our house, and our Pineapple Raisin Sauce is a wonderful accompaniment!  My husband Jack developed this recipe and has really perfected it over the years.  He always gets rave reviews from our guests whenever we serve it. This pineapple raisin sauce is […]

Indian Pudding

Living in Plymouth, Massachusetts with Pilgrim history all around us, we take our Thanksgiving preparations pretty seriously – and this recipe for Indian pudding is a traditional New England Thanksgiving classic.  Indian pudding is made primarily with milk, corn meal, molasses and spices.  Although perhaps not the most elegant-looking dessert, don’t judge this book by […]
