Duet: Coconut Macaroon Pie / Edith Piaf

The food: Macaroons started as Italian almond meringue cookies and, when they came to France in the 1500s, evolved into colorful stuffed sandwiches. While I like that classic cookie, I much prefer the chewy goodness of a coconut macaroon. Jewish chefs adapted the original recipe to remove the flour and leavening agent (using egg whites instead), making them a popular Passover treat. I tried recently to make coconut macaroons, but they[…]

The good news is I have an easy recipe for getting it right every time, so you can dish it up with confidence at your Super Bowl® or Oscars® party. Best of all, it’s a[…]

Duet: Chicken Quesadilla / Santana “Abraxas”

The food: Mexican food is such a great guilty pleasure. After all, it’s very often deep fried and loaded with cheese—and when you visit a hole-in-the-wall restaurant (the best kind), it’s likely also swimming in oil, butter, or lard. To save us all a few calories, I came up with this baked chicken quesadilla recipe. Although it has a fair share of cheese, it’s[…]
