Raspberry Rugelach

Dan Cooking

I have a scoring session tomorrow afternoon. You know what that means – a new thing to try cooking! Since the rugelach I baked last week came out nicely, this time I decided to make Raspberry Rugelach. Not bad – I forgot to use the egg wash though to make it “shine”, and I think I folded them wrong (as you can see, some of then unfurled a tad). But, it tastes good! The second batch had the same unfolding …

Chocolate Cream Cheese Rugelach

Yes, it’s as good as it sounds. And yes, it’s super-easy to make. And yes, they look like weird brown dropping of…. well. Hmm. But yes, they taste amazing! Cream cheese, butter and sugar. What’s not to love? After the dough chills, roll it out, and slather on a little Nutella They look so cute all rolled up! Ooooh – yes, they look like poo. But they taste like Bubbie’s Heaven! Note: when they first came out of the oven, …

Lemon Bars, One Last Time. Seriously.

Dan Cooking

Ok I lied, I had said (not on this blog) that the lemon bars I made for the Medal of Honor: Airborne scoring session would be my last batch of them, and I would move on to a new recipe. It wasn’t true. I intended to move on, but I realized that one of the music contractors I’m friendly with never got to have any of the lemon bars, since he wasn’t contracting the two sessions I brought them to …

Lemon Bars in La-La Land

Dan Cooking

I brought lemon bars to the Medal of Honor: Airborne scoring session. They were a double batch, so I had enough to keep the booth happy, and then the orchestra could get a bunch of them too. Suffice it to say, they were a hit! The tagline on the SoundtrackNet logo was changed to say “Baking to Keep the Orchestra Playing”.

Lemon Bars – Take Two

Dan Cooking

I have a scoring session tomorrow, and decided that I would make the lemon bars again, and bring them to the session. That way, I get to practice cooking them, and don’t have to eat all of them when they’re done! Also, it will positively affect my reputation among the musicians, since they love food! One thing is, I’ve noticed that my gas oven runs a little hot, and I need to get a stone for it to help even …

Lemon Bars

Dan Cooking

For all of my life, I’ve attended the annual family Thankgsiving meal – but never cooked anything for it. Well, that all changed tonight, when I decided – on a whim, really – to make Lemon Bars. Liz had given me a recipe last night, and I figured I’d give it a go! If it worked, awesome. If it failed, I would have only sacrificed 2 eggs, some flour, some sugar, and some lemons. No real harm done! I forgot …
